Blue Sensor, RedSolx, Clear= :)

Well darn! with 3 lenses I can now cover every condition I will ever encounter on the mountain. The clear lens is used exclusively for night riding at brighton / other night riding places. it is a must if you want to enjoy nightriding without freezing your eyeballs open.
I actually have 2 of the low light lenses and when riding pow days I always keep one in my jacket pocket. Nothing worse than taking a digger, filling your gogs up with snow, then fighting fog all day. This is no longer a problem as it takes less than 15 seconds for me to swap lenses on the lift. Just dont drop them.
The solx is obviously their darkest one and I use it on bright days only. Still pretty good light transmission (can be found in the sizing chart)
One thing I love with ALL smith goggles I have used is that their lens does not distort vision or fatigue my eyes at all. After the first 2 minutes, i forget I even have them on.
Bluebird out? Red Mirror Sol-X!
You really can't beat the Smith I/O. There is a lens for every condition so stock up!
This is what November 17th in the Wasatch looks like.
Skiing pow in the morning, answering your gear questions in the afternoon!

I have a tendency to trash lenses during the course of a season and it's great to be able to replace them without having to buy a new pair of goggles. I currently have two pairs: one stocked with a red sensor lens for cloudy low light days and a second with a Red Mirror Sol-X for everything else. By keeping the second pair in my pack, I don't even have to worry about swapping the lenses out when the weather changes. The Sol-X is a good looking lens (I love the mirror effect) that provides great protection.

i have the smith i/ox goggles and was wondering if this is the right lens for that google? also, was curious specially at the photochoromic lens on it's performance, is it worth the money as an all around type of lens that can replace the ability to carry extra lenses on the hill, etc? thanks
Hey Roberto, These are not the lens that you would need for the I/OX but here is a link. As far as the photochromatic lens go its going to be mostly preference. They come handy when your conditions are just right for it so if its going bright light to low light because of cloud coverage or a storm it will take a minute or two to change back to low light conditions. http://www.backcountry.com/smith-i-ox-i-ox-elite-turbo-fan-replacement-goggle-lens

I needed a lens for bright sunny days and the PLATINUM MIRROR does a great job. Easy to change out of the Smith I/O and are very durable. I've dropped these several times and still don't have a scratch
Lots of lenses
I/O's are great for having a collection of lenses. Super easy to change. I got the clear lens for night skiing and I throw it in some old frames for mtn biking.
Love this lens
I got the blue sensor mirror lens. Love it for variable conditions.
Get the clear lens now,
The clear lens for the I/O seems to be always running out of stock. This gem of a high value lens is perfect for night skiing, and adequate for those foggy days. Has a VLT of 84%.
great lenses that can be easily replaced with a variety of options for different lighting conditions. Great value compared to comparable options.
Any plans on stocking any of these?
Any plans on stocking any of these?
Yes we are expecting some in the next few weeks. Unfortunately Smith has completely sold out a few times this year, thus making it hard for us to re-up. The day will come though, I swear it.
I already own the ignitor and the blue sensor lens, but I wanted something a little more for the really sunny days at Park City, so I got the Platinum lens. It's not what I thought it would be (thought it was going to be way more silver mirrored than the Ignitor) but it works really well for the sunny days. It's more of a rose base lens (as it's described on Smith's site) with a red/orange chrome finish from the front look, and when you look out, it's more orange. Just wish it looked more "platinum". Regardless, such a fan of the I/O and I love being able to switch out my lenses whenever I need to
Can't say enough
I've been purchasing the I/O goggle every year since the thing came out! All I can say is...wow...just a super comfortable fit even with all sorts of helmet brands, not just smith.
Ideal in weight, snug but soft on my face, and my favorite part, being able to change lenses in about 20 seconds. Super easy interchangeability. Really enjoy the style too, you have such a great peripheral vision with the spherical lens but it doesn't give you the bug eyed look that some of the other sphericals tend to do. Haven't seen a better pair of goggles on the market, and I think smith has just about perfected it here.

Which lenses are polarized? is this one of them? looking for one in a pinch.
None of these are polarized. We don't currently have any of the polarized replacement lenses.
Smith I/O goggles and mirror lenses are killer and nothing more needs to be said. They worked perfectly during all day dumps then bluebird days that followed. Never fogged and worked in all light conditions.
Grand Targhee Pow
These Smith lenses worked perfect everyday in every snow condition. Of course the bluebird powder day was the best use of the lenses.

i have a old pair of smith goggles with a eclipse lens in them. Will the I/O replacement lens fit these goggles?
I don't think so, the IO lens is very specific to the IO with it's quick change feature.

When will dogfunk be getting more replacement lenses for these googles?
After the polarized RC and clear.

What would be an appropriate tint for night skiing?
No. Go for a complete transparent/clear lens instead, preferably with an AR coating. There are many and thankfully, debunked myths of orange increasing night vision.
Any color will detract from the total amount/intensity of the light your eyes receive, which will make you see less. Which of course will reduce the amount of detail you see especially in the darker areas of your field of vision.
Best pair of Goggles
I got these goggles when they first came out 2 years ago, there's a reason i never went back to Oakley. these goggles are awesome change the lens when i get to the ski area in the morning. these fit great and they are comfortable. my only grip about these are they wont go over my helmet even though i did away with that style a long time ago. to any one indecisive these goggles are the best i have owned, You cannot go wrong.
Which I/O lens tint works better on very...
Which I/O lens tint works better on very snowy days the sensor mirror or the gold sensor mirror?
Good question, David. According to Smith, both lenses have a visual light transmittance of 70%, making them almost identical when it comes to performance. The Gold Sensor Mirror and the regular Sensor Mirror are perfect for low to medium light conditions (storms, overcast days, etc.). However, it should be noted that the Gold Sensor Mirror is going to help you most in LOW LIGHT (evening, overcast) while the regular Sensor Mirror is intended for FLAT LIGHT (snow storms, whiteout). Both will do the job, but the Sensor Mirror would be the best pick for you.
