Smith Optics was born in 1965 when Dr. Robert Smith, a dentist by day and an enthusiastic skier, used dental foam and glue to create the first-ever snow goggles featuring breathable vents. This invention revolutionized winter sports and established Smith Optics as a brand that stands for innovative, durable, top-quality products up to this day.
Snow goggles VICE ZW9/CI represent the culmination of Smith's decades long expertise in building, testing and refining snow goggles in cooperation with professional athletes. Streamlined frame geometry provides unrivaled field of view and makes Smith perfectly compatible with helmets from all major manufacturers including Bolle, Giro, Anon, K2 or Smith. Integrated exhaust fans assure superior anti-fog ventilation even in the most demanding conditions.

Photochromic technology brings you lenses that adapt to changing light conditions, so you always have the perfect tint for the amount of light.
Spherical lenses are built on a base curve in both the X (horizontal) and Y (vertical) axis. This pioneering shape provides the highest level of optical clarity, improved fit characteristics and increased volume improving fog performance.
Smith’s carbonic-x outer lens material is individually molded to offer optimum scratch and impact resistance, increased visual acuity and enhanced contrast sensitivity. The carbonic-x material meets class one optical standards.
Tapered Lens Technology
Smith’s TLT straightens out the incoming light rays by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center toward the peripheral view. What this means for you is that you see with 100% accuracy and maximum comfort.
Changes in elevation bring changes in atmospheric pressure. 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 one optical standards.
Smith's proprietary 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.
