When Smith created the I/O, they invented a category. As the original interchangeable goggle, the I/O is the standard by which all other goggles are measured.

Snowboarding's hard enough when you can see where you're going, so don't make it even tougher with fog-glazed goggles. Smith designed the Scotty Lago Signature I/O Goggles to stay fog-free and allow for easy lens swapping, so you'll always have the right shades for the job. The Quick-Release lens-change system makes it super easy to pop out one spherical Carbonic-X lens out and slip another in when the light goes from bright to flat, and the three-layer DriWix face foam and dual-outrigger frame deliver a snug fit without pinching or discomfort. As usual, Smith's also at the forefront of fog prevention and optical precision. The Lago uses Vaporator dual-lens technology to prevent fogging, with a Porex filter that evacuates moisture from between the lenses and a 5X anti-fog coating that increases the surface area of the goggle to prevent moisture build-up (we asked if it was magic, but Smith ensured us it's actually science). The upshot of all this is the I/O's one of the sickest goggles on the market--just ask Scotty.

Smith IO Goggles are interchangeable lens goggles with an updated, rimless design and the best technology Smith Optics has to offer. With an easy quick-change lens system, the Smith I/O Goggles are one of the best ski choices out there with exceptional optics, anti-fog technology and a supremely comfortable fit. Patented Vaporator lens technology means these lenses are robotically cut and bonded with an airtight silicone bead to eliminate lens delamination - the number one cause of between-the-lens fogging. A Porex micro-porous filter, the world's strongest thermal lens barrier, completes the system allowing air molucules to pass through while stopping water molecules; thus, the thermal lens is allowed to adjust to varying altitudes. Patented Regulator lens ventilation system lets you control your goggle's airflow. Carbonic-X spherical lens provides exceptional clarity, visual acuity, scratch and impact resistance, and increases the goggle's interior volume for fog-free vision. Tapered Lens Technology (TLT) straightens out incoming light rays with a progressive taper, letting you see with 100% accuracy and maximum comfort. Exclusive, integrated Fog-X lens treatment creates a micro-etched surface to absorb moisture before fog can form. Quick-release lens system makes these some of the best-performing interchangeable lens goggles on the market. Dual-layer DriWix face foam is ultra plush and compression molded to seal out the elements. Articulating outrigger positioning system is engineered to transfer pressure evenly across your brow and nose for a complete, comfortable seal that stays consistent even with helmet use. Self-adjusting Split V nose interrupts the urethane in the nose area to provide a custom fit. Smith goggle strap is ultra wide, durable and double woven with a silicone back for superior helmet compatibility. Quickfit strap adjustment system with a clip buckle makes for hassle-free fitting. Microfiber Smith goggle pouch with replacement lens sleeve included.
