Smith I/O Interchangeable Optics Spherical Series Goggles 2011 Review

I love the I/O goggle, the evolve edition is made from mostly recycled plastic, and the super quick interchangeable lens option is sick. I can change a lens in seconds, on the lift, at the top of a line, where ever; it's fast and sweet. They have great peripheral vision, and fit perfectly with smith helmets. With the updated face foam they fit better when worn with a hat to.

The I/O is my favorite goggle of all time. The ability to quickly and easily change out the lens makes my life easy after I take a huge tomahawk. This way I never have to waste room in my pack with an extra set of goggles, just an extra lens is all I ever need. There even better on the on the resort when I don't have a pack cause I just throw a lens in my pocket and I can change it out on the chair.

I choose the I/O because I like the way it looks and it comes with great lens options. The lens' are so easy to change that you can do it out in the field even when it's snowing. I use the sensor mirror when the light's flat and the ignitor mirror when it's not.

Trek Goes Big With The New Session

Ok, the apocalypse is here. Reality stars are presidents, DH bikes are 29ers, Cats and dogs—living together. But we all knew this was coming. Santa Cruz let theirs out few weeks ago, so for sure the big dogs were not far behind—perhaps just waiting for a bigger event in the northern hemisphere to launch their version. The new Trek Session DH bike actually comes in both wheel flavors: A complete 27.5 with a stiffer frame, race-focused geometry, updated suspension optimized for air
