What do you get when you take Smith's proven Fuel V.1 goggles and add multiple density foam for an even better fit? Well, you end up with the Smith Fuel V.1 Max Goggles. You still get the same tear-off compatibility, fog-free dual pane lens, and helmet-friendly shape that's made the Fuel V.1 a classic. The dual-density foam just makes it better.
To ensure that your goggles are fog-free, it's essential that they have a close fit against your face. To these ends, Smith has incorporated its F.A.T. two-layer face foam. Basically, it consists of a dense foam base and a soft, conforming foam mid-layer. It results in a seamless interface that prevents fogging when you're riding. In fact, the two-layer face foam is the upgrade that separates the Max version from the regular Fuel V.1 goggles. And to secure the fit run after run, the straps are held in place with silicone grippers.
The clear lenses included with the Fuel incorporate tear-off tabs. So, you'll have clear vision, in the wettest of conditions. But, if you'd prefer something that's friendlier to both the user and the environment, they're compatible with Smith's roll-off system. It's not dissimilar from an analog camera, in that the pull tab advances the film roll across the lens. And, along with being easier to use than a standard tear-off, you'll also enjoy the moral high ground of taking your used lens-protectors with you, rather than littering the Earth with sheets of tear-off film.
The Smith Fuel V.1 Max Goggles are available in one size and in the colors Black/silver static, Blue/white strobe, and Silver/black static.

Smith Fuel V.1 Goggles
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Bought these to use for downhill mountain biking. These work great! The tinted amber lens helps block out the sun while making it clear to see the trail.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Finally someone does a pair of MX goggles right! These absorb the swear amazingly well and never fog up on me. Not to mention comfortable.
Can they be used for snowboarding/skiing...
Can they be used for snowboarding/skiing?
They could probably work for it, you might get a bit more cold air moving through the vents then you want though. You would probably be better off buying a dedicated pair of snowsport googles, unless you are only using them very infrequently and will use these mostly for biking.
