Reviews - Smith Phenom Turbo Fan Goggle
The fan really does make a difference
The fan has two speeds: low and high. The high speed is very noticeable while its on making a buzzing sound and can only be turned on for a short duration. I had far more success in clearing the lens using the high speed even at a shorter duration than the low speed. About 15-25 seconds at high power should reduce moderate fogging. The other interesting observation about the fan at low speed is that while on, it's not constantly churning. Instead it kind of phases in and out. The fan switch is kind of hard to flip with your gloves, I just found it easier to use my fingers. And the fan assembly is quite light, i didn't notice its presence. Overall, at high speed, the fan is quick and effective at reducing fogging. If you're used to Smith goggles, the fit should be very familiar. Very comfy goggles that fit over the helmet. And replaceable lenses.
Good all around goggles
Bought these goggles as my previous ones were fogging up in cold weather. So far, the Phenom Turbo Fan has worked great. It has a pretty good helmet fit with my Smith Maze helmet. The field of vision is adequate, could be a little better but it's good enough. I got them with the ignitor lens which is a good all around lens. The fan does help if the goggles fog a little. It has two speeds, the first speed is pretty silent and the high speed does have a buzzing sound. Some people complaint about the sound but you are not supposed to let the fan running on high all day. You basically turn it on when goggles fog up and in a minute or two they are clear and you can turn the fan off or back to low. I guess Smith can improve a little on the fan noise for those picky riders but it doesn't bother me much as it's only for a minute or two. I think these goggles are pretty good all around and a good buy.
Speed Riding at Heavenly Ski Resort in Lake Tahoe
These goggles were perfect for my first crack at speed riding. The fan was awesome for keeping my goggles fog free while I struggled with un-tangling my canopy at the top of Ellie's at 10,040ft in freezing conditions. Here's the video of my adventure (minus the struggling): http://youtu.be/lIWTpI9hkxE Thanks Altrec!
