2016 Smith Virtue Womens Goggle Overview by SkisDotCom and SnowboardsDotCom


Hey, I’m Rob from skis.com and snowboards.com, joined today by Jim from Smith. Jim, thanks for being here. Thanks for having me, Rob. So we’re talking about the Virtue really cool goggle in Smith’s lineup. It’s a women’s specific goggle, kind of falling in line with where the Vice falls in line on the men’s side of things. What’s kind of the first thing that jumps out at you on this goggle? Well, one of the strongest features is the that it is female specific so it’s a narrower frame in width and shorter in height so it really fits a thinner, smaller face super well. And then a spherical lense, right? Yeah, the spherical lense, so you get optical quality that is 100% as good as it gets in Smith’s collection and we’re using the outriggers still, just like on the Vice, that really allow the frame to fit strong on the face without interference from the helmet. For sure, and then a really comfortable fit too. Comfortable fit due to the triple layer face foam which makes a big difference when you’re wearing a goggle all day long and then we always want to remind people that we use the silicon bead on the strap so it fits the helmets and stays on well and the clip buckle construction, going on and off the helmet really easily. Absolutely, such an awesome feature, really easy on and off. Lots of ventilation here too so keeping the climate under control inside the goggle, right? Absolutely, anti-fog is very high in this goggle. Really great goggle in Smith’s lineup, women’s specific, the Virtue. You can check it out on skis.com and snowboards.com. Jim, thanks for joining us.
