Smith Optics makes sunglasses, goggles and protective helmets so you can do cool stuff outside and stay safe while you do it. Their ergonomic, high-performance styles work just as hard as you do, letting you focus less on adjusting or compensating for your gear and more on doing what you love. Whether you’re busy hitting the slopes or pedaling your way to a new PR, you’ll find protective gear to round out your kit here.
Saving your noggin
You should make sure to buckle your helmet before you ride, and sleek-looking options from Smith make it an easy choice. Smith helmets for cycling and snowsports use MIPS technology — that stands for Multidirectional Impact Protection System — to reduce rotational forces in the event of an oblique impact. This cushioning prevents and reduces rotational torque on the skull, so you can keep a cool head while you pick up speed.
Glasses and goggles
To keep the sun out of your eyes and snow or mud from flying in your face, consider goggles or sunglasses. Smith’s signature ChromaPop™ lenses use hyper-tuned colour tints to adjust your vision to what’s around you. Different lenses deliver different levels of colour, clarity and definition, so snag a pair of sunglasses with interchangeable lenses so you can switch them out with ease.
Now that you’re up to speed on Smith, look through their optical and protective gear that’ll have your back on slopes and trails.
