The Smith Vice Goggle combines the look and feel of a traditional full frame goggle with a semi-rimless design and low profile outriggers to articulate for superior helmet integration. The oversized spherical lens has substantial peripheral vision, includes Porex™ filter for preventing optical distortion during changes in elevation, and is enhanced with Fog-X anti-fog coating for fog-free vision.Read more
Spherical lenses are built on a base curve in both the X (horizontal) and Y (vertical) axis. Smith's spherical lenses are off ered exclusively in carbonic-x material with TLT Optics and a base 6x4 toric shape. This pioneering shape provides the highest level of optical clarity, improved fit characteristics and increased volume improving fog performance.
An optically precise, spherical lens for superior clarity and impact resistance. A proprietary, silicone based hardcoated lens provides unsurpassed scratch and abrasion resistance while a hydrophobic coating reduces fogging and smudging as well as increasing scratch resistance. Regulator ventilation comes standard in this lens.
Smith Fog-X lens treatment employs a hydrophilic, micro-etched surface to absorb moisture and disperse it over a wide surface area to prevent fogging. Because it is physically carved into the lens, it can't be wiped away like other anti-fog coatings.
TLT: Tapered Lens Technology
When light passes through a medium (a lens, for instance) it refracts, or changes course. This refraction can cause visual distortion and eye fatigue. Smith's Tapered Lens Technology straightens out the incoming light rays by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center toward the peripheral view. You see with 100% accuracy and maximum comfort.
Porex™ Filter Technology
Changes in elevation bring changes in atmospheric pressure. These forces have the potential to diminish the optics of thermal lens systems. Smith's patented Porex™ filter solves this issue by allowing the air pressure within the sealed lens chamber to equalize with the ambient atmospheric pressure ensuring class 1 optical standards.
