Notice: I am not in any way shape or form affiliated to this company. Just a very excited paintballer/Snowboarder!

So, during the non winter times, i am an avid paintball player. If you are an avid paintball player (or have played for any extended period of time) , you should know who DYE is. They make everything from High end paintball guns, masks, soft goods, pads, EVERYTHING. If you know them, you know they make very high end products and have excellent design and manufacturing.

Well they are branching off now and making Snowsport goggles!

Now, i haven't tried these goggles yet, but before i bought a pair of proper snow goggles, i wore my DYE paintball goggles on the slopes, and those worked fantastic, so i have no doubt about them making a proper pair of goggles specifically for snow.

They are also at SIA in Denver,CO. This weekend if any of you living in or around denver want to check them out in person.

Anyway enough of me talking like an excited school girl. Here are some pics/video!

I could get my lenses out pretty quick too if I didn't care about finger prints all over the inside of them :laugh:

They look a lot like Smith I-O :dunno:

They do look kinda like smith I/O, but i think theyre a little more stylish. less of the frame shows and they are more smooth flowing.

Theyre at the same price as the I/O too for the DTS series. The Insight series comes with i think 1 or 2 extra lenses which is why the price is higher, and both lenses are polarized

Dye is an extremely reputable paintball company. And I play competitively in a paintball league, and i use their paintball masks. I'm guessing they just recently branched into snowboard equipment, i've seen this floating around some time since last year. If their snowboard products/goggles are as good as their paintball equipment I'd definitely recommend them.

They're a great company. And it's interesting to see this.

He didnt say much about them on his site. Hopefully he stops in here and gives a more in depth comment on them. I plan on buying them with some of my tax return :)

I'll be picking up a pair next year.

I think for now I'll probably just order their hoodie to start getting the name out there. Not sure if it has a media pocket or is waterproof though since the description on their site is quite lacking.

haha wow

This company has been around for a while but not in the snowboarding industry. They are a top of the line paintball company. If anyone has every been into paintball you should know this company. I used to play tournament paintball and wore their paintball masks religiously. The quality and the durability of their products are amazing. I am amazed that they are breaking into the snow scene. If i had known they made snow goggles I would not have bought the Oakley crowbars and gotten these instead.

I'm a paintballer as well. I current rock Dye's goggles which are easily Top 3 goggle systems you can buy in paintball. I am a bit skeptical when it comes to them making snowboard goggles though. I was told directly by one of their reps, via a reply to my facebook post, that they weren't intending on actually releasing these for sale until next season.

Their comment:
Dye has been developing product for the 2012/2013 season. We are Launching our inaugural Snow line at the SIA show in Denver next week. This is the debut of Dye Snow products you will see in stores next season. Select models 12/13 will be available on Dye Snow - Innovative top quality products for todays most demanding Riders. in mid February.
However the price.....yeah i might have to pass on that. A bit too rich for my blood. Hell even their limited edition paintball goggles dont cost that much with 2 or 3 extra pairs of lenses

DYE goggles make girls so hot they start taking body shots off eachother.


Also theyre apparently releasing a second goggle. Watch this video (theyre after Frends)

These ones look even better than the T1
