Smith dominates the goggle market in snow sports, so it only makes sense that the company now brings their technology to mountain biking. The new Squad MTB goggle will feature the same multi-condition optics, ventilation, and integrated helmet fit you have come to expect from a classic Smith goggle.
To allow for maximum airflow and ventilation in the Squad MTB goggles, Smith stripped away all extra vent foam on the top, sides, and bottom of the flexible frame, while also adding vent ports across the top of the lens. Smith uses an ultra plush, hypoallergenic Sweat-X F.A.T. 3 layer face foam that is approximately 50% more absorbent than standard face foams. A special lattice design between the lens and face flange delivers a comfortable and pliable fit for a variety of face types.
A large, single Carbonic-X cylindrical lens provides maximum clarity, wide field of view, and superior durability. The hard-coated exterior battles dirt, sweat and mud, while the inner, military grade, anti-fog coating addresses humidity and sweat build up.
The Squad MTB goggles are designed to integrate with Smith bike helmets, like the Forefront, as well as many full-face helmets on the market. The mountain bike goggles are available in 12 colorways, including a strap designed by team rider Brandon Semenuk.
The Smith Squad MTB goggles will retail for $60 and start shipping in October. The goggles come 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.
