Smith Fuel V2 Sweat-X Black Batik

$67.66

 Product Description

Smith Optics have come a long way since creating the first ever ski goggle in 1965. Today it's controlled by the 2nd largest optical frame and sunglasses manufacturer in the world, Safilo. An italian company with plants in Italy, China, USA and Slovenia, over 20 household brands and spread across 103 countires. With big $ comes big eyewear.

The Smith Fuel V.2 Sweat-X with its 3 layer foam, outrigger positioning system, anti-fog lexan lens and silicone backed strap all with a lifetime warranty. Now, to be totally up-front, these things aren't new to us, in fact, some of our team riders use them all the time and this is why they make our top 3 list for high performance.

In the box, you'll get your brand new sparkly goggles with a clean goggle bag and roll-off kit. When you get over how cool they look, the next thing you'll notice is that they're light and really well padded. Throw them over your helmet and hit the track and you'll get a seriously comfortable unit. There's plenty of homework that goes into these things for design and style. The triple layer foam combined with the outrigger positioning system allows the goggle to sit soft and comfortable distributing even pressure across the face. Peripheral vision is fantastic and much better than the original Fuel frame. We reckon its got the broadest vision on offer helped by the outriggers setback. The vents at the top and bottom of the frame allow for plenty of air flow to manage moisture and fogging and we've had zero issues here. The triple layer foam is also ultra-absorbent which helps moisture control. On occasion, there has been murmurs that the 3 layer foam can separate at certain points around the nose which doesn't cause any fit or performance issues but worth noting. The anti-fog Lexan lens is clear, tough and has a high resistance to scratching. The blackout lens is blacked out literally and perfect for those sunny days. We've tried the Fuel V2 with a number of helmets and a quick tug on the back of the strap makes for a perfect fit. The silicone back also holds the goggles firmly in place and cleans up well with some dish soap in the unlikely event that you get roasted. The roll-off system is functional and easy to use but just a little fiddley on first set-up. The Smith Fuel V2 Sweat-X makes our top 3 list 4 high performance 4 everything MTB and Moto-X. I'd wear these things everywhere if it were commonly acceptable.
