Six insane snowboarders but their personal style twist on their favourite model for their pro models. Looking good! Check each one out in more detail below.

Smith Optics Elena Hight I/OS Snowboard Goggles 2016-2017

Elena Hight’s pro model is based around the slightly smaller I/OS frame but they don’t pack any less technology than Smith’s larger goggle models. These have the same amazing 5X anti-fog tech and super fast lens changing system all wrapped up in a women’s specific model that is good enough for a four time X-Games winner!

Smith Optics I/OS Snowboard Goggles 2016-2017

Never fear, if Elena’s signature colourway on the I/OS doesn’t do it for you but you crave the smaller frame size, Smith has plenty of other colour options for you to find the perfect match.

The I/O7 was designed for optimised perfromance and perfected fit. With AirVac for ultimate anti-fogginess when combined with a helmet, these goggles have more than enough tech for the ultimate day on the mountain. The Smith I/O snowboard goggle was the original solution to the demands of changing light and difficulties changing lenses on the fly with a massive field of view.

Smith Optics Scotty Lago I/O Snowboard Goggles 2016-2017

Scotty Lago knows what’s up. The founder of Lago Snowboards, master of the infamous Lago edits and Olympic Bronze medalist knows that Smith Optics have him covered for whatever he might be doing. Scotty takes the original I/O model and throws in an instant classic modern camo design to the strap. Bet you never saw him coming.

Smith Optics Squad Snowboard Goggles 2016-2017

Smith Optics have a squad that runs deep. The Squad goggle is what they all choose. It’s massive cylindrical lens is tough as nails and the newly designed, fully integrated strap connection point delivers the function you need with no extra moving parts.

Smith Optics Scott Stevens Squad Snowboard Goggles 2016-2017

Scotty Stevens needs no introduction and neither does his Smith Squad Pro Model Goggle. The black and pink colourway is so on point, but not everyone has the steeze levels of Steven’s.

Smith Optics Austin Smith Squad Snowboard Goggles 2016-2017

Another Smith Pro model in the form of the Squad Goggle, you know Scott Stevens AND Austin Smith can’t be wrong. We’re fully down with the camo colourway and the fact that Austin is a boss. Getting these will not make you ride like him but it’s nice to imagine what he sees through his lens.

Smith Optics Riot Desiree Melancon Snowboard Goggles 2016-2017

The Riot goggle is aimed at that new generation of female riders who want an over sized cylindrical lens in a minimal frame. Desiree Melancon has long been the Queen of urban riding and while she may not rock the street goggles, she knows what to expect from here gear. The Riot, complete with artwork that looks like Desiree’s own is sure to hold it down whatever the occasion.

Smith Optics Snowboard Helmets 2016-2017

Smith Optics don’t just stop at the goggles, they work to protect your whole dome. All the goggles are designed to fit seamlessly with a helmet design. As you can see there are a tonne of combos to put together.

Smith Optics X Woolrich Collab Snowboard Helmets 2016-2017

For the second year Smith Optics have teamed up with Woolrich, the oldest continually operating wool mill in the US, to produce the highest quality woolen ear flaps for their helmet designs. Let’s just say these guys know their way around sheep’s hair, every design was hand picked from an archive that dates back to the 1830’s. That’s a lot of wool! Poor sheep = super warm ears.

Smith Optics Pivot Snowboard Helmet 2016-2017

The Pivot Helmet by Smith Optics is probably the sleekest design with a more modern fit and style. For all the dome kids out there, you’ll be able to fit one of these under your thug rug with no troubles. The matt black option looks like it will be a winner for sure.

Smith Optics Holt Snowboard Helmet 2016-2017

This right here is the Holt Helmet. Get this if you want something to protect your neck (and brains) in any situation. From park to backcountry, this will be the perfect companion for your season.

Smith Optics X Coal Collab Neckwarmer and Snowboard Goggles 2016-2017

You know we always save the best for last! Smith have been buddies with Coal Headware for longer than we can remember and this collab goggle/ balaclava doesn’t disappoint. Specifically designed to be a perfect match for each other, the fit gives full coverage and the matching design looks rad. Thin enough to be worn under a helmet, but tech enough to keep you warm all day, with sick style to boot!
