Smith had its beginnings in 1965 when Dr Bob Smith began building ski goggles in his garage. What truly set Smith’s goggles apart was the sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam. Smith then continued to innovate, perfecting his goggles and growing this American brand to what it is today. In the decades since its founding, Smith has become a favourite brand of outdoorsy folks from around the world. Skiers, snowboarders, cyclists, and hikers alike know they can rely on Smith to deliver world-class products.
Though their beginnings were with ski goggles, Smith has since expanded their line of products considerably. They now offer sports gear for almost every athlete. Their products vary in terms of style, but they’re all made with exceptionally high-quality materials and built to withstand harsh weather conditions. This includes everything from their sunglasses, which offer 100% UV protection, to their series of durable helmets.
Smith’s selection of helmets has something for everyone, including men, women, and children living in every climate. They offer a series of snow helmets in a massive range of colours and styles, along with countless road helmets and mountain biking helmets. Each helmet is specially designed with features like comfort lining, fixed vents, an adjustable visor, and more, depending on which model you choose. The vast majority of Smith helmets also feature a Brain Protection System that reduces the force of angled impacts to the head, which is important for any athlete.
Smith also carries a wide selection of goggles for skiers and cyclists. Their diverse inventory of sunglasses also sets them apart from other brands. Their array of sunglasses includes designs for athletes, everyday sunglasses, sunglasses for water sports, and so much more.
