what is the difference between the blue sensor mirror and the gold sensor mirror? I've heard the blue doesn't add much detail and I was wondering if the gold sensor is better or even the yellow sensor, but I know the gold sensor is vlt 70%

Responded on

The blue sensor and gold sensor are both rated for 70% VLT! The red sensor is rated at 60% and the regular sensor 65%.
The gold sensor has a light rose base lens tint with a multi-layer gold sensor mirror which enhances color definition and increases depth perception in varying levels of low-light conditions.
The blue sensor has a light rose base lens tint with a multi-layer mirror which maximizes color definition and increases depth perception in varying levels of flat light conditions.
Bottom line, the base tint is the same light rose on any sensor lens but with slight variations in mirror coating. A lot of people have their preferences based on aesthetics, etc, but they are all awesome for flat light conditions. I really like all of them - actually the red sensor is my favorite. Those warmer colors (rose base + yellow or red coating) are nice for grey days - add a little contrast to that grey scale weather. But 70% VLT really brightens things up so you can't go wrong either way!

These goggles are awesome!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had a pair of I/O's before and loved them so decided to get another pair. The visibility is great in these and I have never had them fog up. The lens replacement is very simple! The key is to make sure the lens is all the way into the nose piece before trying to put in the rest of it. They give you exact instructions on how to do this too. I used to use the red sol-x lens which is great for sunny conditions. This pair came with the ignitor lens which lets a little more light through allowing for better vision when going from sun to shade throughout the run. It still provides enough glare reduction to be used on a sunny day. The red sensor mirror lens looks amazing and is great in the low light! Must have!!

These goggles are awesome!!

black on black on black on black. I think oakleys are a little more comfortable (the layer of foam closest to my face is stiffer than that on oakley crowbars) but it's not a huge problem. Maybe I have more of a racoon face after a day on the slopes?

Best Goggle Out

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These goggles are bomber. Huge range of vision with super sick lenses for every condition. The clip on the back of the strap is super convenient and the lenses are really easy to change out. Cant go wrong with Smith goggles!

Comfortable fit, Peripheral to the Max

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used the I/O for the last 3 seasons and they are definitely one of the tried and true pieces of equipment I own. The lenses are incredibly easy to change in a pinch, I've even done it mid lift ride. They are made to interface well with any of the Smith helmets. I've used them with both the Vantage and the Maze - no gaper gap. There are tons of lens options as well which make the I/O super versatile no matter which frame you choose.

Best Goggle Out There

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these goggles so much. They come in so many great styles, and stay in really good shape for a really long time. The lenses don't easily fog up and they lenses are super easy to change. They have an amazing venting system. I am a competitive skier who travels and skis throughout the whole winter and my I/O have managed to keep up with my needs and continue to impress me every single ski season. They fit really well with any Smith helmet, but I definitely recommend the Maze the most. Get these goggles if you are looking for a good time.

what is the best lenses for the i/o .for snowy and really cloudy weather

Responded on

Hey Kim,
For low light conditions, you'll want a lens with a high VLT (visible light transmission). Any of the Sensor lenses would be awesome - Blue Sensor 70% VLT, Red Sensor 60% VLT, or the Yellow Sensor 65% VLT.

Do this google go good together with POC...

Do this google go good together with POC Fornix small size helmet?

Best Answer Responded on

I usually like to stay with the same brand when choosing helmets and goggles. Of course these will work, I just think the helmet and goggle are usually made to fit better when you stay within the same brand.

These goggles fit perfectly with the poc fornix!

Hi What size Smith I/O goggle works best...

Hi What size Smith I/O goggle works best with the Smith Variant helmet (medium size) My face size would probably be medium to large? Thanks

Best Answer Responded on

The I/O sounds like it would be perfect. This goggle is meant for medium to large faces, the I/O X is bigger and will provide more peripheral but, it might not fit the best. The I/O S is for small to medium faces, I would say if your in the middle of the range go with this. If you are worried buy both the I/O and I/O X we will provide you free shipping to get a pair back to us as long as they are new.

Comfy and Reliable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The i/o goggles are spot on. Definitely great for small to medium sized faces, the flexible frames wraps around your face snug. The ventilation pared with the double lenses mags fog issues less than with other goggles. I use about one lens all year, skiing everyday and without fog or negative visibility, just treat 'em right (dry them at night and regulate moisture while out and about). The red sol-x lens is my all time favorite, works in flat light and sunny conditions!

Great Gog

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great goggles, probably the best i've ever worn. They fit so perfect to my face while not being bulky at all. Very easy lens changing system and there also super durable. I took a bunch of nasty spills and the frame is still fine and smith even gave me a brand new lens after scratching mine.

Love em!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I liked these goggles so much I bought a second pair when they were on sale for around $60 on SteepAndCheap. They don't fog up, the lenses are easy to replace, they look cool, they keep my eyes safe. I suppose they are a bit on the pricey side, but they're definitely high quality.

Only time I had any issue was in very cold conditions (-15F), the moisture coming off my face started to freeze on the inside of the lens, but I'm not sure there's much you can do at about it at that temperature. It only happened later on in the day, as well.

Both pairs I got came with 2 lenses and a very nice goggle pouch. The mirrored lenses are way cool looking, but honestly the non-mirrored are more practical once you hit that 3pm flat light.

Initial thoughts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I think I just bought my third pair of the I/O line and purchased these in the White frame with the red sensor mirror. I get the same old feel. I have a very narrow face so I do have a hard time finding more expensive goggles to fit my face. Usually the corners of my eyes have exposed air coming through because goggles do not seal. These extinguish that problem all together. These goggles provide a huge plain of view. I get a much greater field of vision and it allows me to use my periphery much more effectively. The lenses come in and out pretty easily, however it is no Anon M2 or M1 (but none on the market are right). What I do not like about these goggles is that the snap is directly on the back of the band and they awkwardly fit through my goggle clip on the back of my helmet. Huge bonus of the strap is it has a silicone rubber strip around the inside which helps keep my goggles up. My last pair of I/0 did not have this and would come down from time to time. This helps keep my goggles in place when I am really bouncing around. So much appreciated SMITHOPTICS. One last note, I use these with a POC receptor backcountry and they fit my helmet very well, no gaper gap! I have used them in the past with a Smith Variant and the fit was solid as well. Right now the price on these is a steal. The only place you will find them cheaper is on Ebay. I hope this helps you guys out.
