Almost ruined my day

    Goggles are pretty comfy on the face, and the look is really nice. However, on the 3rd day riding these, the lenses developed a fog in between them. Almost ruined an amazing pow day in UT. They seemed to work fine above 20F, but any colder than that seemed to fog up. I had a spare pair of Scope Pro's that did the exact same thing today....

    Sensor is the best

      I got these last year and wore them in Pure Sun and Cloudy Conditions. They worked great in the sunny conditions, I had a little bit of a depth issue in low light but nothing that caused me to wreck. But they never fogged up, the fit was great (even on my big noggin) and I really like they way they feel. My wife says they look good, so they pass that test as well! I would buy them again for sure.

      Too large.

        No complaints regarding the lenses - the sensor mirror is great for low light and the platinum mirror does the job on bluebird days - but the sizing may not work for most. I believe they would be better suited for a large-xlarge face, but the frame still seems over-sized as they protrude forward quite a bit (They do have a large visual field). Also, the foam started separating from one my pairs after only 20 days of use with a helmet.

        Too large.

        Stylish, but not for me

          Ordered these off SAC for a great deal, but they just didn't fit my face (I have a medium-sized face). They rode a bit high, too far up my face. They also left a slight gap around my nose. Other than that, they seem to be a great quality goggle - I liked the style and the lens (ignitor). I tried the Phenom next, and they fit much better.

          Awesome Goggles

            I picked up the Prodigy to reply my aging Phonemes. I was a huge Phoneme fan, but I have to say the Prodigy is my new favorite. I wear them with the Holt helmet and the overall fit between the Phoneme and Prodigy is about the same. The difference really comes from the pressure on my nose. I have a big dome and a big nose so nearly every pair of goggles I’ve owned puts pressure on my nose. I can still feel the pressure with the Prodigy, but it is much less than anything else I’ve worn. The range of view is a little broader with the Prodigy, but not significantly. Overall a great goggle for those of us who have a less then petite face.

            Best goggles ever...

              Well, maybe not the best ever but definitely the best I've had. The wide frames fit my face perfectly and the perfect compatibility with my Smith helmet cannot be beat. I give them 4 stars out of 5 only because the foam around the lens tends to tear easily but it does not seem to affect the performance factor. They never fog but if they do (on seriously wet days in Tahoe), a brief dryer session works everything out. The trick is to take the lens out of the frame and force the air through the two lenses. I'll continue to buy these until I find something better (something I highly doubt).

              Great

                Does exactly what it says on the tin, provided you follow the instructions. I left them on my forehead whilst on a chair lift and just as the manual said...they fogged up, it wasn't bad but it did take the rest of the day to clear. Didn't impair the vision though.

                Get the mid strength lens as the palest is no good for going into the sun.

                Love the SMITH lettering on the elastic, half the reason I chose this brand is becuase of my surname.

                The lining on the inside of the lens could be a bit more durable, got a few scratches on mine after only a week and I was exactly kicking them down the street. Oh well, its not the end of the world, I'm pretty sure they do replacement lenses.

                Bitchin goggles

                  I just got done using these goggles skiing for a week in Colorado. They are awesome in all light conditions and they fit my large-size face rather well. I have the Red Grandstanding/Platinum Mirror edition. They never fogged once. Awesome goggles, I would recommend them to anyone.

                  nothing better on earth

                    i have the matte black with the sensor mirror lens. I have used these goggles snowboarding, hiking 14ers in Colorado and even when i'm just walking around outside when it is windy. these goggles have gone through rain, snow, sleet, and tree branches. I have put these goggles through some of the worst conditions possible and they still look brand new!

                    The sensor mirror lens works great for bight sunny days and dark nights! during the day it turns everything kinda yellow-ish and really blocks the sun, and during the night it brightens everything up...i sometimes forget its dark until i take them off. You will never have to worry about these goggles fogging up! I have TRIED to get these to fog up and couldn't. Not once have the fogged!

                    When they are on the feel like are part of your face, like they belong there.

                    They have small vents along the top of the lens that you can open and shut that really help to keep you cool on hot days. the clip on the back of the strap is nice to have but i think i could do without it. I find myself always checking to make sure they haven't came unclipped and fell off. So far they haven't fallen off so don't let that deter you from buying them.

                    These goggles are great! Don't hesitate on buying them they are worth it 100%!!!

                    These goggles rock!!

                      Excellent in style and lense quality,,,perfect fit to my Giro Omen helmut. I've never had them fog up on me in any conditions. I use the sensor mirrors on all my goggles...I find them to be the best in all mountain conditions...get some...you'll be stoked!!!

                      Jury is still out

                        I have used these Prodigy's for two straight days in not-so-great condition. Using the Sensor mirror lens. The first day it was rain at the bottom of the hill, wet snow at the top. They worked pretty well. Too bad they don't have windshield wipers, but heck, you cannot have everything. Visibility was an "A".

                        Second day, foggy as pea soup. Put them on and they were foggy too, double fog! That is no good. Why were they foggy? I'm not sure. It wasn't the inside or outside of the lens, but the internal? Perhaps the wetness from the day before got into the very middle? My fingers are crossed that these lenses have not been compromised. I'm thinking, get them 100% dry before I judge them completely. I could have used the best visibility today, instead I had worse than okay, and the goggle performance was a part of it. I really wish they hadn't internally fogged.

                        Has anyone else experienced this problem?

                        Weird enough, inside they chalet: no fog. Once outside it the elements: fog. But it wasn't anything I could wipe away.

                        >Why were they foggy? I'm not sure. It wasn't the inside or outside of the lens, but the internal? Perhaps the wetness from the day before got into the very middle?

                        Certainly the middle between the two lenses. Make sure you air out your goggles every night, otherwise this happens, especially when it's warm / you've been sweating.

                        Best yet. . .

                          I've got a huge dome, sweat like a (insert catch phrase) and these goggles (paired with Hustle helmet) are all I need. What would usually fog up any other goggles I've owned simply appears then disappears on these goggles.

                          I've had a number of Oakley goggles before and always felt that they were wayyy to small, and that the lenses were too finicky but more importantly the fogged up horribly.

                          Only thing I need to change or would change is the option for a longer strap. When I've got these with the helmet, they are as loose as I can get them and still slightly tight. Not uncomfortable at all, but noticeable when you take them off. I'll add to the review when I start getting face shots this next week (hopefully). . .

                          is the sensor mirror a mirror? and what lens is good for skiing at night

                          Best Answer

                          The sensor mirror lenses reflect some sharp light, but you can't hide behind them while checking out shorties' asses. The image is quite accurate of how other people see you though them.

                          The Sensor has a rose tint that increases contrast and about 70% light transmission which makes it quite ideal for night skiing or flat light conditions. Other colors I'd recommend are yellow, soft purple or clear.

                          Sensor mirror or Platinum mirror or even...

                          Sensor mirror or Platinum mirror or even Ignitor mirror. What is the difference? I've been reading and people are talking about them. But I'm a little slow. I wanna buy these goggles but don"t know which lens. I ski in all kinds of conditions. What's flat light? Heard that term quit a bit. But lets just say i am leaning towards the Ignitor or the Platinum lens. What's the real difference between the two. Does the difference in light make that much of a difference? Please help. Thanks.

                          Best Answer

                          The sensor mirror is the best all around lense ever made......from blue bird to pea soup. flat light is when the light and elements make it all but impossible to see any kind of terrain definition essentially "flattening" everything out into one plane. ie. skiing on white snow in a cloud= didn't see that coming.

                          If Smith still sells their polarized lens for this goggle, that would be your best bet. Sure it costs the most, but once you go polarized, you never go back. Say flat-light conditions exist, you wouldnt be able to see that catwalk cutting across the trail until its too late... Sensor mirror is great in flat-light, no doubt. Polarized is great for sunny days or if you hate glare. Personally, I rock my Prodigy Polarized on sunny days, and switch to my Smith I/O's for everything else (yellow, sensor,ignitor, platinum, clear)

                          Is there replacement lenses for the prodigy goggles if so haow can I get them?

                          SMith prodigy or Oakley Crowbar Please...

                          SMith prodigy or Oakley Crowbar Please help !!!

                          Personally I prefer Smith over Oakley any day. The Crowbar is by far the nicest offering from Oakley, fits with most helmets, and has great optics, but the Prodigy is much nicer in my opinion. The optics are spot on perfect, the lenses you can get with it are awesome, and they fit with almost every helmet I have every tried them with. They are great with visor or full face helmets too, thansks to the break-apart on the back of the strap.

                          Oakley crowbar for sure. I have a pair and they work fantastic. If you wear a helmet the Crowbars are the absolute best goggles on a helmet. The Oakley optics are a million times better than any lense Smith can make. Thats my personal opinion, but i encourage you to do further research on both before you make a purchase.

                          im wondering which two lenses should i get for when its sunny and flat light conditions???

                          Ignitor or Platinum mirror lenses plus Sensor mirror would work well. The VLT in the ratings stands for Visible Light Transmission, or how much of the light around you the lens lets in. High numbers are good for dimmer days (more light means you can see more) and low numbers are good for bright days (less light means you don't blind yourself). I ride with either the Platinum or Sensor lenses in my Fuses pretty much all winter, and I'm a fan of both, although I'm thinking about replacing the Platinum with an Ignitor now that they're getting scratched. Either way, both the Platinum/Sensor and Ignitor/Sensor combinations should cover you on anything from bluebird to pea soup (if you do any real amount of night riding, pick up a clear lens from Smith too).

                          Write your question here...Im going to get the Smith prodigy goggles but im not sure on the lense. What is the difference between the Ignitor, platnum, andRc36 lenses? Maybe you could put them in order from darkest to latest tent or something like that.

                          In order: Platinum Mirror - Darkest (25% light transmission); Sensor Mirror - (35%); RC36 (36%)

                          The RC36s are the closest you'll come to a "standard" lens. They're basically like the "persimmon" that every goggle company has, but they use a rose tint. Plus, Smith gogs have less distortion than most others I've tried.

                          You can also use the Sizing Chart under the color/lens selector drop-down at the top of the page to get a more detailed description of how each lens is supposed to perform. I'd say they are all pretty comparable lenses.

                          Just wondring on the Ignitor Mirror lense, is this a pretty good all around lense and can they see your eyes? Then also they have one gold lense but it just says gol. does anyone know which gold lense it is? Thanks.

                          I am having trouble seeing bumps while the sun is setting which lens is best to help me see the bumps

                          I disagree with the platimun mirror answer, this lens does not let a lot of light through. So, unless you're skiing a southwest fave at sunset and staring directly at the sun, you need something that lets a lot of light in while increasing contrast. So, I reccomend the sensor mirror. It enhances contrast in almost all variable light conditions I have experienced, including, the super fast last bump run to the car at the end of the day.

                          Best Answer

                          Go to the smith website and there is a lot of detail. Platinum mirror is one of the darkest regularly available lenses (but I still ride with them 99% of the time); Ignitor is a bit lighter with more contrast; Sensor is the lightest of the "Mirror" lenses. RC36 is sorta like the old-school orange/rose tint lense.
