Smith Optics Sunglasses
It’s a young, trendy and fashionable generation that love Smith Optics. You’re part of the tribe, but with your own unique sense of style. For over forty years Smith has been a lover of the outdoors – great days in the water, dirt, and snow.
Based in Sun Valley, Idaho, Dr Bob Smith founded Smith Optics, Inc. in 1965 following the creation of the first-ever goggle featuring a sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam. An orthodontist by trade Dr Smith made the goggles using tools of his dental trade and would swap the goggles for lift passes.
Building on that goggle heritage and extending its expertise, Smith Sport Optics sets the standard for high performance eyewear and goggles. Today, Smith Optics has become synonymous with greatly innovative and top-quality products in the eyewear and goggle market.
And Smith boasts some of the top names in biking, motocross, skiing, snowboarding, surfing, skateboarding and wakeboarding among its team riders.
Technologically speaking there’s, Fog-X anti-fog coating, PMT Perforated Membrane Technology lens ventilation system, patented Turbo C.A.M. Constant Air Management system, patented Regulator adjustable lens ventilation system, patented Roll Off's film advance system for motocross, patented ODS (Ocular Docking System) prescription insert and patented Slider series sunglasses and the most innovative interchangeable lens sunglass available.
There’s eco friendly stuff here too. Created from easily renewable, non-genetically modified castor plants, Smith’s Rilsan Clear material frame is combined with FSC certified packaging and a coconut fiber storage bag. The end result is a “fully considered sunglass and a clearer conscience”. And that can only be a good thing.
Smith’s Techlite Polarised Glass lenses produce clarity, optical precision, and comfort and by reducing lens thickness to a minimal, provides a twenty per cent weight reduction. Tapered lens technology under a nine layer construction maximises clarity and eye comfort.
There’s a multi-layer Anti-Reflective (AR) mirror coating to absorb back light effects. A permanent Oleophobic coating protects the lens and mirror coatings by repelling water, dirt, fingerprints, and grease. The PivLock interchangeable lens system makes the task of changing lenses easier than ever.
And if that wasn’t enough Smith’s acetate uses a 33-step handcrafted process that features the inclusion of wire-core temples for a customized fit.
With its devotion to excellence,innovation and style Smith eyewear has become the choice of action-sport athletes around the world. Smith is real sports gear, researched and tested by athletes that live and breathe the life.
