It didn't happen once all the days of spring riding I've been doing. But the first day in the 20's it happened.
I used to wash my I/O lenses under the faucet with soap and water and only had a fogging issue on one lens after repeatedly washing them after every trip out. I only stopped because smith said it wasn't needed, that I could wipe the insides when completely dry with no issues.
I need to call Smith.
lol... sorry for the ramble..... bottom line is they should not fog between the lenses from what I was told by Smith.

|dknj||A friend and I both just got the I/OS. Any idea where a good place is to buy replacement lenses down the road, without paying full price?|

I have the Smith I/OX goggles as well and love them. I also bought a Smith helmet to help in the venting.
I don't know what lenses I have though. They came with 2- a red one and a pinkish one. The salesman told me the red was for sunny and the pinkish for overcast/snowing days. So I have been going by what he told me.
These blue lenses your talking about sound very interesting. I will see if I can order just the blue lens.
But yeah, I was just up on a very wet day (40 degrees), my friend couldn't keep his lenses from fogging--mine had no issue what so ever.

They say that you can't rub the fog coating off, but if you read the papers that come with your goggles, it states very clearly that you should never touch the inside of the lens when wet/damp.
I have these goggles too, and I love them I prefer the red sensor mirror most days up here in the NW. Blue sensor is great when it is a bit foggy, or starting to get dark.

Straight from the smith website and plenty of other sources. the 5x refers to the fact that they made it 5 times bigger.
'A hydrophilic chemical treatment creates a micro-etched surface on the inner lens to absorb moisture before fog can form. Because Fog-X is a treatment that is actually burned into the lens, it can’t be wiped away like other anti-fog coatings.'

Not that I doubt you, but where did you hear that you can't hurt the antifog coating on the inside? I took a nasty spill today and got them pretty snow packed. Was really paranoid to touch the insides at all and let them air dry. Now sitting with a few water spots, but nothing major.
I also love the red sensor mirror. I also have a XL Bern helmet and had tons of adjustment room for the strap to go over the helmet. No pressure points whatsoever.

Yep I'm stunned at how versatile the Blue Sensor lens is.
Yes I wore them with a K2 Helmet and the straps were more than long enough to fit round the XL helmet with room to spare.
