About Smith Goggles Lenses

Smith are one of the major innovators in sportswear optics, with a range of technologies to help bring your ride into sharper focus. There are a couple of important factors to take into consideration when choosing the lenses of your goggles, the most important of which is VLT. Learn more below, and compare Smith lens colors with our full Smith lens guide here to help you pick out the perfect lenses.

VLT (Visual Light Transmission)

Visual Light Transmission is the percentage of light allowed to pass through a lens. In other words, this is how “dark” a pair of goggles will be. The lower the VLT % of the lens, the less light that the goggles will let in. Lenses for bright and sunny days will usually have a VLT percentage in the teens or lower, while low-light lenses will have much higher VLT values.
