Smith Sport Optics

“I have used Smith Optics prescription sunglasses and their non-prescription sunglasses for years.  Always crisp, clear, and very durable; I trust their brand’s quality without question.  When I saw that they have some of the most innovative new cycling helmet tech available I knew I wanted to talk with them about Summit4CAD.”

~ Jon Patrick Hyde, Summit4CAD Founder.

Originating from Sun Valley, Idaho, Smith was founded in 1965 with the invention of the first snow goggle featuring a sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam. With 50 years of innovation and design experience, Smith is widely known today as an industry leader that pioneers advanced eyewear and helmets that incorporate dynamic technologies, optimized performance and clean styling to fuel fun beyond walls. Smith seeks to power thrilling experiences in snow, surf, bike, fish and peak performance outdoor adventures with a comprehensive collection that exudes modern style and vibrant personality. To Smith, the experience is everything. Smith is part of Safilo Group.
