Smith has been at the forefront of goggle technology for years, and with the I/O 7, they show again why they are one of the most trusted in the industry. The unique offering of the I/O 7 is the single-pivot quick release lens change system, which we think makes swapping lenses effortless. With a quick pivot and a few snaps, you can easily go from the bright light lens to your bonus low light lens that is provided. It is worth every penny.
You can't talk Smith Optics without talking the highest quality lenses. The I/O 7 includes two spherical carbonic-x lenses with TLT. TLT is Smith Optics answer to decreased visual distortion and resulting eye fatigue caused by light refraction. When light passes through any medium, it changes course. This causes visual distortion. To avoid this, Smith Optics progressively tapers the lens from the center outward to straighten the incoming light rays. This tapering (TLT technology) results in nondistorted, more accurate vision. We noticed the visual difference immediately, and we believe you will, too.
The I/O 7 also includes Smith's patented porex filter which prevents optical distortion during changes in elevation and 5x anti-fog coating to help keep your vision clear for hours. Smith also designed the I/O 7 with an AirEvac ventilation system that interfaces with your helmet to help circulate air, reducing fogging. Couple these technological advancements with the extreme comfort offered by 3-layer DriWix face foam and a dual-axis outrigger position system to eliminate unwanted pressure, and it is clear why the I/O 7 is one of our favorite goggles in SportsProtective's extensive offering.
As the company name implies, Smith has its roots in goggles and sunglasses. Since 1965, Smith has pioneered innovations in sport optics. Smith began producing helmets in 2005 and has quickly grown its reputation in the ski and snowboard industry. Smith Helmets engineers snowboard protective gear with some of the highest technological advances in performance, protection, design, and fit. The company's background in optics informs its helmet design, and Smith prides itself on the seamless integration of its products. Among the technological advances Smith has developed are AirEvac and AirEvac 2 ventilation systems.
