The Good:

Good fit. Better lens options for different lighting. Excellent ventilation.

The Bad:

Lower field-of-view than other manufacturers.

Overall Review:

I've been dying to get the Smith Squad MTB Goggles ever since I read the reviews on a mountain bike magazine. They looked way cooler than other brands. So I asked a friend to buy one for my while she visited the US. There are lots of replacement lenses and parts if you botch yours.

True to the review of the magazine, it had excellent ventilation. Not once did I feel any overheating. Good airflow above and below the lenses help to dissipate heat. I also like to ability to choose a lens especially one appropriate for riding here in the Philippines. You can also choose a strap. Its also faster to replace the lens. I had to use the clear lens during the rainy season here in Manila.

What I didn’t like was the lower field-of-view than other goggles. I know this because I’m also particular with

What I didn’t like was the lower field-of-view than other goggles. I know this because I’m also particular with my diving masks. There’s 20% less field of view than the 100% Accuri Goggles. This is important if you’re at speed and have only a split second to decide which line to commit. More so in the woods. This is due to the large area occupied by the removable tear-off pins. Now if only Smith will redesign the pins... I would give this product a 10 out of 10.

But hey, I’d still pick the Smith Squad MTB goggles over the others. Period.
