Dr. Bob Smith was the pioneer that founded the brand Smith out of his van in 1965. An orthodontist by trade, he began hand building goggles and travelling to the nearby ski fields in Utah and Colorado on weekends to sell his creations. His products were highly sought after due to his development of the first sealed thermal lens, which was paired with highly breathable vent foam. In 1989, Smith became incorporated as Smith Sport Optics, Inc. and operates to this day as Smith Optics.
Smith’s range of ski helmets and goggles are packed with incredible amounts of technology that contribute to a wonderful experience while being worn.
Our range of Smith helmets feature adjustable venting to alter air flow while on the move, and utilise MIPS safety technologies to create a safe yet comfortable helmet. MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is the industry-leading standard for helmet technology, and greatly reduces the rotational forces applied to the inner portions of your brain in the event of an accident.
Smith goggles utilise ChromaPop lenses, their proprietary lens technology, to provide the wearer with greater detail and colour contrast on the ski slopes. With a wide variety of lens options available to purchase, you are able to buy the lens that correlates with your preferred day out on the slopes, whether that be blue-bird or white-out conditions.
