Smith began their ascent from Sun Valley, Idaho in 1965. Dr. Bob Smith was
an unlikely candidate to get into optics given that he was actually an orthodontist,
but it was actually his dental tools that helped him make the first goggles
with a revolutionary sealed thermal lens and a breathable foam vent. Early on,
these prototypes were developed at home by Smith and his buddies, and they would
trade them for lift tickets at the local mountain. Soon, the phenomenon could
not be contained and Smith became synonymous with extreme eyewear.
The countless innovations and scientific advances Smith continues to make are
evidence of a passion for progression. With their Tapered Lens Technology they
have successfully eliminated distortion. The Vaporator Lens utilizes aerospace
and medical processes to effectively destroy the fogging in your goggles. In
2008, Smith rolled
out a series of eco friendly programs to be a part of their Evolve initiative.
By reusing materials, they have been able to produce sustainable products in
order to have a positive impact on the environment.
Smith sunglasses ride the cutting edge of stylish performance like never before.
The women’s Cypress
Sunglasses are a prime example of a unique, seductive look that
also incorporates the leading technology with CR39 Tapered Lens as well as a
handmade Acetate frame. Men’s Chemist Sunglasses have the right formula
of nylon lenses and 6 base curvature to deliver a fresh take on a classic look.
Smith proves with the Scope
Pro Goggles that you don’t have to pay out the nose just
to protect your eyes. With Dual Lens technology, Airflow Ventilation, and a
compression-molded frame, your goggles will never again be the reason for a

Smith helmets do your most important asset all kinds of favors.
An unrelenting pursuit fueled by honesty, authenticity and innovation has led
