Simply the best goggle out there.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had smith goggles all my life. This is my third pair of smiths, and I absolutely love them. First off, the two lenses for the different light conditions absolutely rock. The lens changing is easy, the helmet interrogation is genius, and the 3 layered foam is super comfy. These goggles provide excellent clarity and vision quality, and they are worth every cent. The helmet interrogation is absolutely genius, and it works great with other smith helmets. Overall, this goggle is amazing, great frame size for smaller faces, and has great lenses with great build quality. (I'm the one on the left.)

Simply the best goggle out there.

Hard to not love

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Upgraded from my late 1980's Oakleys. Paired with a Smith Maze helmet. Perfect integration with that helmet!

Got red sol x and a blue sensor. These things feel a bit "bug size" which I kind of dislike, but the field of vision is pretty good. I actually liked the Dye FOV better, but these had more comfort.

Foam was nice and cushiony. I couldn't see wearing these without the support of a helmet, as the weight of them make them fall down my face without being super tightly strapped in.

Red sol x worked good until about 6PM on a bluebird midwest day. Decided to go blue sensor from then and on then the whole next day. I actually prefer the blue sensor over the red sol x.

Changing out the lenses was ridiculously easy. Minimal fingerprints but those are easily removed.

Goggles have only fogged once on me, and it was a very wet, damp day.

Great For Everything

Great fit, ease of changing the lenses is a huge plus, I use these for everything from backcountry exploring to racing. 100% would recommend these.

Worth Every Penny

The IO's are amazing I have ridden in every condition with them. They have held up amazing and have great lens clarity. They have only ever fogged up on me once and it was some freak thing with the lense. I would take the IO's anyday and they are a great choice for everybody. I am probably going to get the IO7 next year just for a little bigger of a frame, but the Smith IO is amazing!

Best goggle ever

Yes is sounds like a cliché to describe the Smith I/O's as this but it is entirely true. Smith perfectly combined comfort, quality, and style into this goggle. For example they sit on my nose so comfortably you sometimes forget that they are there. And I can't stress enough on how good of an idea it is to include two lenses. I wear my goggles on the outside of my helmet but I'm sure they fit great on the inside as well.

Reviews tell the story here. Just the best goggle available. I like this size over the other IO styles...I have a med size face. Just ordered a second pair. Great lens choices as well.

Simply - "Great Goggles"

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've gone through a lot of goggles over the past 40 years of skiing. And the technology and design have changed immensely during that period. Over the past five years, I played around with Turbo Fan goggles (at least a few years ago, they were still a terrible fit with helmets), many styles of Oakley goggles. I've always had a terrible time with fogging. The Turbo Fan really helped but didn't work great with a helmet. The Oakley goggles fogged a lot with me, no matter how much I spent on design. I also found that the Oakley goggles did not marry well with my helmet choices at the time. I spent a small fortune on a variety of Oakley lenses but struggled every time when I had to swap them out.

These Smith goggles have really solved all my problems. The I/O lenses are so easy to swap out you have to ask yourself why no one came up with this design before. I've had zero - zero - problems with fogging. This is even more impressive to me given how seamlessly these goggles fit with my Smith Vantage helmet.

A great purchase!

what is the difference between the blue sensor mirror and the gold sensor mirror? I've heard the blue doesn't add much detail and I was wondering if the gold sensor is better or even the yellow sensor, but I know the gold sensor is vlt 70%

Responded on

The blue sensor and gold sensor are both rated for 70% VLT! The red sensor is rated at 60% and the regular sensor 65%.
The gold sensor has a light rose base lens tint with a multi-layer gold sensor mirror which enhances color definition and increases depth perception in varying levels of low-light conditions.
The blue sensor has a light rose base lens tint with a multi-layer mirror which maximizes color definition and increases depth perception in varying levels of flat light conditions.
Bottom line, the base tint is the same light rose on any sensor lens but with slight variations in mirror coating. A lot of people have their preferences based on aesthetics, etc, but they are all awesome for flat light conditions. I really like all of them - actually the red sensor is my favorite. Those warmer colors (rose base + yellow or red coating) are nice for grey days - add a little contrast to that grey scale weather. But 70% VLT really brightens things up so you can't go wrong either way!

These goggles are awesome!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had a pair of I/O's before and loved them so decided to get another pair. The visibility is great in these and I have never had them fog up. The lens replacement is very simple! The key is to make sure the lens is all the way into the nose piece before trying to put in the rest of it. They give you exact instructions on how to do this too. I used to use the red sol-x lens which is great for sunny conditions. This pair came with the ignitor lens which lets a little more light through allowing for better vision when going from sun to shade throughout the run. It still provides enough glare reduction to be used on a sunny day. The red sensor mirror lens looks amazing and is great in the low light! Must have!!

These goggles are awesome!!

black on black on black on black. I think oakleys are a little more comfortable (the layer of foam closest to my face is stiffer than that on oakley crowbars) but it's not a huge problem. Maybe I have more of a racoon face after a day on the slopes?

Best Goggle Out

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These goggles are bomber. Huge range of vision with super sick lenses for every condition. The clip on the back of the strap is super convenient and the lenses are really easy to change out. Cant go wrong with Smith goggles!

Comfortable fit, Peripheral to the Max

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used the I/O for the last 3 seasons and they are definitely one of the tried and true pieces of equipment I own. The lenses are incredibly easy to change in a pinch, I've even done it mid lift ride. They are made to interface well with any of the Smith helmets. I've used them with both the Vantage and the Maze - no gaper gap. There are tons of lens options as well which make the I/O super versatile no matter which frame you choose.

I love these goggles so much. They come in so many great styles, and stay in really good shape for a really long time. The lenses don't easily fog up and they lenses are super easy to change. They have an amazing venting system. I am a competitive skier who travels and skis throughout the whole winter and my I/O have managed to keep up with my needs and continue to impress me every single ski season. They fit really well with any Smith helmet, but I definitely recommend the Maze the most. Get these goggles if you are looking for a good time.

what is the best lenses for the i/o .for snowy and really cloudy weather

Responded on

Hey Kim,
For low light conditions, you'll want a lens with a high VLT (visible light transmission). Any of the Sensor lenses would be awesome - Blue Sensor 70% VLT, Red Sensor 60% VLT, or the Yellow Sensor 65% VLT.

Do this google go good together with POC...

Do this google go good together with POC Fornix small size helmet?

Best Answer Responded on

I usually like to stay with the same brand when choosing helmets and goggles. Of course these will work, I just think the helmet and goggle are usually made to fit better when you stay within the same brand.

These goggles fit perfectly with the poc fornix!

Hi What size Smith I/O goggle works best...

Hi What size Smith I/O goggle works best with the Smith Variant helmet (medium size) My face size would probably be medium to large? Thanks

Best Answer Responded on

The I/O sounds like it would be perfect. This goggle is meant for medium to large faces, the I/O X is bigger and will provide more peripheral but, it might not fit the best. The I/O S is for small to medium faces, I would say if your in the middle of the range go with this. If you are worried buy both the I/O and I/O X we will provide you free shipping to get a pair back to us as long as they are new.
