Smith turbo fan goggle question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

So I just picked up some knowledge OTG goggles and I wanted to buy a gold lens for them, but could not find one, so I called Smith and they have been discontinued, I saw the Prophecy replacement lenses online, and they look to be the same, so my question was if anybody knows if they will fit, or if I am gonna be forced to return the goggles and pickup a different pair.

 

Thanks guys.

I know there was a standard goggle that had the same shape lens, could have been the Prophecy. There was a difference in that the turbo fan lens didn't have the vent holes along the top. Not sure how much difference it made.

Do you have your heart set on the gold? The blue sensor mirrors are just as effective and are available for the knowledge otg's.

Thanks, but that is for the regular, not the turbo fan, the fan ones do not have the vents

I have the blue sensor ones, but the VLT is either 70 or 80, and the gold was 7, just need something for sun since I'm gonna be in steamboat the first week of april.

Sorry--thought you meant the gold sensors. Looks like your best option for the Knowledge turbo is the ignitor mirror. I have never found those not dark enough for sunny days but at 35% VLT they obviously aren't as dark as the gold sol-x.

The Prophesy is smaller than the Knowledge and the lenses are not interchangeable.  I have both and gave up on the Knowledge because it was too big, Prophesy fits my face much better and I use the Ignitor Mirror for bright sunny days, works fine for me.  The Platinum Mirror is 25% VLT.
