Smith I/O Asian Fit Goggles

Now one of the best interchangeable goggle series on the market fits more face shapes.

Brand: Smith

Model: I/O Asian Fit Goggles


This new fit mold helps the I/O’s sit flush on more faces by accommodating a lower nose bridge and higher cheekbones. Don’t overlook these based on the name: Many of our female testers and a few (non-Asian) males preferred this fit to the regular I/O’s. “I have a rounder face and lower brow bone, so most goggles engulf my face,” one male tester says. “But these sit on my face right against my helmet, without putting pressure on my nose.”


In the new fit, you get the anti-fog tech that won these an Editors’ Choice Snow Award in 2012: Etching on the inside of the lens increases surface area to disperse moisture. You also get the same quick-release lens changing system, two spherical lenses (low- and high-light options), and quick-release buckle.
