    How to Avoid your Goggles Fogging Up

    Why do goggles fog and how do I stop it from happening?

    Having your goggles fog is one of the most frustrating things you can deal with up on the hill. It always seems to happen when it’s least helpful… Even on the sunniest of days, you can end up being unable to see anything in front of you.

    Choosing a high-grade goggle with anti-fogging technologies definitely help. Employing anti-fog coatings, highly ergonomic vents, double lenses or fused lenses increase the chance you’ll have a fog free day! Smith goggles  come with arguably the best anti-fog regime on the market. Using two different hydrophobic coatings, the lenses themselves disperse moisture across a greater field allowing for prevention. They combine this with a fused double lens with a one-way valve called the Porex Filter, allowing for ventilation and air pressure regulation.

    Aside from differing brand technologies, there are a few extra things you can do to help get the most out of your goggle and prevent fogging.

    • To remove snow from your goggle, always make sure you shake it off. Wiping the snow off with your glove might scratch the delicate anti-fog film and compromise its ability to disperse moisture.
    • Always try and keep your vents clear! Make sure there’s always enough clearance to allow fresh air to come into the goggle and circulate the moisture.
    • Never ever ever put your goggles on your head or helmet… They’ll fog! The transition between the warm and cold air so quickly will flare up fogging.
    • Always keep moving! Ripping down the hill increases air flow, so keep those laps going!

    If you’ve recently purchased a pair of goggles, and you’re having a hard time keeping them fog free, give us a call or visit us at the shop . Some goggles now come with a limited lifetime warranty, which covers fogging lenses. We might be able to help you out!
