Overall, they are very good goggles. Well worth the money. They are cool looking and perform very well. I personaly like them 10 x better than my old oakleys.
The regulator system works very well. If its realy cold or windy out, I just need to close the vents and Im good to go. If the goggles fog (wich is very very rare) I can just open the vents and the fog goes away.
The lens system also works very well, with a lens for each light setting while you are out on the slopes. Darker lenses for bright sunny conditions, and lighter ones for dark days and night skiing.
They look very cool and sharp, and I love the costom designs/colors they comme in. The lenses are easily changeable.
Price varies from store to store, but I got them at d-structure for 90 $ (They were on sale, they retailed for 125$) wich is a very good price, even at retail price for what you get
The goggles fit pretty well. They are a bit loose fitting when I use them with my helmet, but its not a big issue.
The face foam is thick and it is very comfortable
I only got 8 days on them, but they are holding up to date
If you scratch or damage the lens, they come with a replacement lens
I really like theses goggles but if i hadent gotten them on sale i prolly wouldent have bought them .
they are a solid produch with a sweet feature that allows you to ajust the amount of air flowing through your goggles .
Ya the regs work great its like this little switch u flip in fron of the lense i find that on cold nights when you have the vents wide open ur face can get cold other than that their great.
They look sick thats all i can say i have oarnge frames with silver mirrors
Well i got these for $40.00 at the toronto international ski show so im pretty happy with the price vs preformance aspect of it. But i saw them for $120.00 during the winter and i would probly never spen that much on a pair of goggs.
The fuse regs fit great no goggle gap with these.tho they dont fit well with the bern baker.
The lense got scratched after a season but i fell on my face alot. And you cant see the scratches when their on ur face so their pretty good.
Very underated goggle, everyone raves about the anon figment but really these are a better goggle at a cheaper price in most places. Pick these up if they fit your face well.
Good performance, the switchable vent on the top actually does make a significant difference and helps with fogging.
Looks pretty nice, not as pimped out as my figments, but there goggles and they don't look super ugly so thats all that matters.
GREAT value, you can pick these up cheap almost anywhere, and its defintly worth the money.
Fit the exact same as the anon figment, its a so-so fit(not that great for my face shape) but fit is simple, go try them on, for me its a meh, but could be better or worse depending on your face shape.
The Fuse by Smith is one of my favorite goggles of all time. The optical quality is fantastic, they'll take a beating, and they look great. This is the goggle that doesn't look like you've got alien death-rays stashed behind the lenses, its just simple and to the point.
With a wide array of lens options from super dark to totally clear, the goggles are great in all light conditions. Vision is always clear, and fogging is minimal. They do fog from time-to-time, however this is usually when I'm hiking or shovelling. I have not found a pair of goggles yet that do not fog under these conditions.
The only downside I can think of to these is the air seal wasn't as good as the Prodigy. I felt a bit of wind coming around my nose into my eyes. Very minimal but noticable.
The Fuse looks great in my opinion. It comes in a great assortment of colours and pattens. I like the squared off, simplistic lines of the goggles. They aren't trying to look too fancy, just straightforwards goggles. They sag quite well to for those of you looking to wear the goggles downtown.
The Fuse are definitly high in price. However, the quality for what you pay is great. The goggles are MUCH higher quality than cheaper options, and are the same quality as other manufacturers where goggles cost exorbant amounts.
If you're looking to invest in good goggles, the fuse are it.
The fit on the face is great too, Smith has very comfortable face padding on the goggles.
I found that the Fuse leaked a bit of air around my nose though...
The goggles LAST. I still have pairs from years ago. Now I will make the distinction between frames and lenses. As with any goggles, lenses get messed up fast. I recommend buying a few extra lenses so you can swap them out. Makes a huge difference when you put a new lens in an old frame--like getting a new pair of goggles.
Only time I have ever broken the frame I bounced my face off of pavement doing a summer rail contest. I think the goggles saved my face...
