Smith “represent authentic sports gear, researched and tested by a dedicated group of employees and athletes that live and breathe the lifestyle. It’s easy to make a great product when you love what you do”.
A pioneer in the goggle industry, Dr Bob Smith (dentist) made his first prototypes using dental tools, foam and glue. The result was a goggle that protected you from the elements and let hot air escape (anti-fog venting).
In the coming decades Smith Optics continued to be at the forefront of innovation - receiving patents for features commonly found in modern day goggles. It was a natural transition to start producing helmets, creating an integrated safety and optical system.
Trusting their vision to these goggles in high risk situations, the team of snowboard professionals that use Smith products is testament to how good they are.
