There's a lens for every type of condition you can encounter on the mountain. Here we break down each lens and its purpose, but first it's important we cover some key lens vocabulary.
VLT - Visible Light Transmission - this is indicated as a percentage. It is the percentage of light the lens allows through. The lower the number, the less light can pass through the lens, making the lens darker.
Lens S-Categories - Ranging from 0 to 4, these categories describe a range of Visible Light Transmission and can be used to determine which lens will be best suited for you. Category 0 is for very low light or stormy conditions, whereas Category 5 is the darkest tint available. Category 0: 80-100% VLT - Category 1: 43-80% VLT - Category 2: 18-43% VLT - Category 3: 8-18% VLT - Category 4 3-8% VLT
ChromaPop - Smith's proprietary lens technology which filters two specific wavelengths of light that cause color confusion. By doing this, the lens delivers greater definition, more natural color, and extra clarity allowing you to see more detail.
Tapered Lens Technology - Tapered Lens Technology is Smith's custom toric-shaped lens, which can be equated to the same shape as the side of a donut
