Smith revolutionized the ski/snowboard goggle market by introducing the I/O, the world's first frameless goggle with interchangeable lenses. This year they have advanced the I/O range, building upon 53 years of innovation, by adding another member to the family the I/O Mag XL, a frameless goggle with an even large spherical lens and a swift magnetic lens change system. The new I/O Mag XL is 10% larger than the I/O Mag.
The MAG lens change system features a dual locking mechanism that provides the ease and speed of a regular magnetic lens change system, but has the added bonus of a mechanical locking mechanism to keep it secure. When ready to change lenses, the user simply pushes either of the two levers behind the goggle straps allowing them to pull the lens away from the 8 magnets securing it to the frame. Pop on a new lens and you're ready to go.
In addition to this awesome swift lens change system, the I/O MAG XL has a whole host of other design features that make it one of the best ski/snowboard goggles around. An innovative dual-axis outrigger system pivots both vertically and laterally improving comfort and allowing you to wear the goggle strap in any position with or without a helmet. 3-layer DriWix face foam also helps wick away any moisture and seal out the elements to keep you warm, dry and comfortable.
Smith's carbonic-x lens provides exceptional visibility and a 5X anti-fog inner lens helps prevent fogging. Smith's patented Porex filter guarantees performance regardless of altitude/elevation allowing the lens to adapt to changes in air pressure and guarantee optical clarity. Tapered lens technology helps refract incoming light reducing eye strain and fatigue allowing you to see better for longer.
The I/O MAG XL is an excellent goggle that comes packed full of tech that offers an even more expansive field of vision. With a bonus, low light lens included you can be ready for any condition and have perfect vision all day, every day. If you're looking for a ski/snowboard goggle that is packed full of technological features, has industry leading lenses and a quick lens change system, the I/O MAG XL is an excellent choice.
