When you see more, you can do more. Smith's proprietary ChromaPop lens technology enhances clarity and natural colour to let you effortlessly see more detail. Compared to traditional lenses, ChromaPop gives more detail over a wider range of conditions.
Greater detail in vision gives you the advantage needed to perform confidently and have more fun. Each of Smith's condition-specific ChromaPop lenses is available in different coloured mirror finishes, meaning you're not confined to just one style!
Through Smith's proprietary ChromaPop™ lens technology, you can see detail and colour beyond normal capabilities. ChromaPop™ filters light at two specific wavelengths. By doing this the lens delivers greater definition, more natural colour, and unmatched clarity to allow you to see more detail. With just one ChromaPop™ lens you experience enhanced definition across a greater range of conditions than with traditional lenses.
Perfect for bright weather, the eye-catching mirrors over a grey base eases the harsh glare of high elevation sun while helping the eyes see more detail in terrain.
Suited for a range of conditions, enhances every undulation of snow so you get more out of every moment. Perfect for changeable weather.
Tuned to bring the most out of an environment when the storm moves in and the lights go out. Optimize contrast even on the worst days, so you can stay out longer.
Prescription Insert Technology
What is the Prescription Insert?
The key feature in prescription ski goggles is the use of prescription inserts, which is a separate frame which fits into the framework of the goggles. Smith use their own branded inserts on a select few frames while the majority use a universal insert.
What are the benefits?
The insert doesn't change the functionality of the goggle frame itself, meaning you can still take full advantage of any lens interchange system your goggle uses. The insert is easily mounted and removed from the frame, making it easy to clean.
What are the prescription options?
Your insert can be glazed with a range of lens materials including anti-fog and bi-focal.
We've tested our range of Smith goggles for compatibility with a range of after-market prescription ski goggle inserts.
