Smith Announces New Mountain Bike Specific Goggles
Featuring a massive, single Carbonic-X cylindrical lens, the Squad MTB goggle provides maximum clarity, wide field of view, and superior durability. With a borrowed technology from our military eyewear program, we utilize flow coating anti-fog treatment to the interior of the lens to reduce moisture build-up on the inside without compromising its exterior durability. The hard-coated exterior battles dirt, sweat and mud while the inner anti-fog coating addresses humidity and sweat build up. The Squad MTB ships with a multi-layer premium mirrored lens and a clear tint, anti-fog coated bonus lens included in the box. Both lenses feature pre-installed posts for tear offs.
Available in 12 colorways, including a strap designed by team rider, Brandon Semenuk, as part of Smith’s Inspired Design (ID) Collection where top athletes work directly with our design team to create graphics that they’re proud to call their own. The Squad MTB is designed to integrate with Smith bike helmets, like the award-winning Forefront, as well as many full-face helmets on the market. “I rode a bunch with the goggles and my Forefront. The temperatures were varying, topping out at about 80 degrees. No moisture was involved. My goal was to get the goggles to fog. Despite my best efforts, including climbing 2000ft in the heat, I could not create fog. I even stopped at the top of the climb, with no breeze and s tood still. No fog at all,” said team rider, Nate Hills.
The new goggles will be available October 2015 at specialty retailers worldwide and www.smithoptics.com.
