The company story began back in 1965, when Dr Bob Smith from Sun Valley in the US state of Idaho created a pair of ski goggles using breathable foam and a sealed themal lens. The former ski bum and orthodontist wanted to do himself a service and increase the length of time on his ski runs. The discovery of these ski goggles led to the company SMITH being formed. More than 50 years later the company is one of the market leaders of helmets and goggles for skiers and cyclists. SMITH ski goggles and glasses for bikers are characterised by elegant style, dynamic technology and optimum performance.
SMITH is an innovative company that loves developing new models and technology. Among the large number of product innovations is the first lens change system for snow goggles and sunglasses. The introduction of two ventilation systems allowed seamless integration of the protective goggles with the helmet. Another new addition was the use of anti-fog goggle technology. The largest environmentally-friendly goggle collection in the world is also a project of the SMITH brand. The polarised ChromaPop lens technology is scientifcally very advanced. Aerocore technology on the other hand offers a completely new ventilation concept while increasing the protective function of bike and ski helmets.
The ski, bike and snowboard goggles were developed together with top athletes and put to the test. These include stars of the international mountain biking scene such as Aaron Gwin, Brett Rheeder and Jill Kintner. Also impressed by the quality of SMITH helmets and googles are the cyclists and triathletes Jodie Schwalbe, Trevor Wurtele, Callum Millward and many other athletes. Professional big mountain freeskier Mark Abma also belongs to this group as well as freeskiing professionals Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Markus Eder.
SMITH has brought some of the most modern eyewear to the market. These include sunglasses with Lowdown Focus frames. Sensors are integrated into the frames that measure brain activity and translates this into visual form on your laptop or smartphone. This allows you to analyse your mental performance in real time. You work through the cognitive training sessions in the SMITH Focus app. The Lowdown Focus Brain Sensing Eyewear is the first of its kind worldwide. With regular training using these glasses, cognitive skills such as concentration are significantly improved over time.
SMITH sunglasses always guarantee optimum vision even in difficult lighting conditions such as snow spray on the piste or cycling into head-on sunlight.
