Default Smith ??

So my buddy gave me these goggles and they are one of the few that don't fog on me. They are scratched up really bad. I need new lenses but don't know what kind of goggles they are and I can't take the lense out. I don't wanna break them any help would be cool. I bought smith io this summer but they fog on me every run. To small? ImageUploadedByTapatalk1359086948.894156.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1359086983.460060.jpg

If the I/O fog on you every time something isn't right. Have you tried different lenses?

The only time my smith I/Os fogged on me is when I got moisture on the inside from the snow that was falling, or it would happen just a little bit once in a great while when the foam surround got soaked in sweat or wet from conditions. (I wasn't wearing the right gear, causing me to heavily sweat)

Popping in a another lens normally fixed the problem.

I/O are large goggles. I now have the I/Ox and they a bit larger and I haven't had a fogging issue once. But the regular I/Os have a great anti-fog.

My little brother has the IO. The first pair he got had major fogging issues. My bro contacted Smith and they replaced it for him quick and easy (free) and now he loves them and I love my IOs that I got based on how he was with his Smiths.

thats why i bought them. never seen a review of fogging on the io, but idk they fog like crazy. sunny days and powder days when its snowing. i have the two lenses that come with it and both fog. one has started fogging inside. i sweat alot around my forehead and what not. the first time i kinda rubbed the inside. maybe thats y idk. im jussing its just not a good fit. these goggles are old and no problem at all other then scraches. not looking to spend 50 on a new lense and have it happen agian.


anyone know the name? im thinking smith prophecy but i dont know. thanks

also forgot to add that i got the ios from ebay for $80 but they were brand new and came with all the reg stuff.

Oh you have the IO/S, not like that should really matter but whatever.

I would call SMITH and see what they say. If you rubbed the inside while wet that lens is fucked. I did the same thing, live and learn.

You could have seal leaks but that would be rare for two lenses. I don't know...... i did a lot of research when I got mine and fogging was always reported as little to none.

Good luck. Sorry I can't help with your question about the scratched up lenses.

Sometimes on the Smith lenses the vent is bad and will cause fogging

those old goggles are Smith Cascade "Regulator". There are replacement lenses for them on ebay, however, I'd probably just buy a new set of regular cascades because you probably don't know what model regulator frame you have...or you could just buy a set of cheap Dragon Rogues (fits same face shape as cascade and excellent anti-fog).

...and, I agree, smith I/O are sketchy. Half the people that buy them end up with horrible fog between the lenses (I was one of them). I went through 3 different sensor lenses and they were all useless. Like you, I ended up having to ride out the rest of the season with my cheap old cascades because they never fogged no matter what the conditions.
