Add fuel to the fire.

What do you get when you take Smith's proven Fuel V.1 goggles and add multiple density foam for an even better fit? Well, you end up with the Smith Fuel V.1 Max Goggles. You still get the same tear-off compatibility, fog-free dual pane lens, and helmet-friendly shape that's made the Fuel V.1 a classic. The dual-density foam just makes it better.

To ensure that your goggles are fog-free, it's essential that they have a close fit against your face. To these ends, Smith has incorporated its F.A.T. two-layer face foam. Basically, it consists of a dense foam base and a soft, conforming foam mid-layer. It results in a seamless interface that prevents fogging when you're riding. In fact, the two-layer face foam is the upgrade that separates the Max version from the regular Fuel V.1 goggles. And to secure the fit run after run, the straps are held in place with silicone grippers.

The clear lenses included with the Fuel incorporate tear-off tabs. So, you'll have clear vision, in the wettest of conditions. But, if you'd prefer something that's friendlier to both the user and the environment, they're compatible with Smith's roll-off system. It's not dissimilar from an analog camera, in that the pull tab advances the film roll across the lens. And, along with being easier to use than a standard tear-off, you'll also enjoy the moral high ground of taking your used lens-protectors with you, rather than littering the Earth with sheets of tear-off film.

The Smith Fuel V.1 Max Goggles are available in one size and in the colors Black/silver static, Blue/white strobe, and Silver/black static.

Just Right

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

My brother picked up a pair of these in Reactor/Red Mirror for a recent bike trip to East Burke, VT. As his first pair of mountain bike goggles, he loves them. He said they never fogged, were nice and clear, and integrated well with his POC Cortex helmet. When he spent time at Burke Mountain, it got stormy and they worked well in low light conditions too.

Keeps dust out of my eyes

Comfy, integrates well with the Giro Disciple helmet, and doesn't let dust get in my eyes. Only complaint is that the lens isn't that great optically, but gets the job done. 9/10.

Fits well with helmet, does the job

I've tested these with both Bell Super and Giro Switchblade helmets. Fits fine with both. As with other Smith goggles, these have a comfortable fit, breathe well while still keeping dust out of your eyes, and don't get fogged up. The level of tint on the lens seems about right. I also like the wide assortment of colors!

Get the dust out your eyes!

Here is Salt Lake we have a short muddy season but last year I had a run in with a bee and it was a little to close to the eye for comfort so I decided to buy some goggles for the trail. These work great, the amber lens does a good job of blocking the rays without making the trail too dark. Pretty comfortable and I haven't had them fog up at all on the cooler mornings.

Bought these to use for downhill mountain biking. These work great! The tinted amber lens helps block out the sun while making it clear to see the trail.

Can they be used for snowboarding/skiing...

Can they be used for snowboarding/skiing?

They could probably work for it, you might get a bit more cold air moving through the vents then you want though. You would probably be better off buying a dedicated pair of snowsport googles, unless you are only using them very infrequently and will use these mostly for biking.

Finally someone does a pair of MX goggles right! These absorb the swear amazingly well and never fog up on me. Not to mention comfortable.
