 This is the most stacked lineup I've ever seen. Smith's team is overpowered

 Smith must pay better than Oakley...

 hahaha! that is funny. Smith is a fraction of the size of $7B Oakley machine.

 yeah I doubt Smith can hang with Oakley's budget, so it must be the Smith product/vibe that is superior and what these athletes want. Oakley sure does have huge road bike/spandex team though...

 Smith trumps Oakley in quality as well as vibe. Oakley is pretty played out and everyone wears their glasses. If somebody wears Smith it's a pretty sure bet they're into some sort of outdoor sport. Plus Smith is made in the US with a lifetime warranty

 Are you kidding me? Oakley is un-explainably superior to smith in terms of body and lenses in both biking and skiing.
  • 3 1
 Oakley are cheap and made in god-knows where. Smith are superior for dirt and for snow it's not even a question. Ask any outdoor professional what goggles he wears and they'll be Smith. My Uncle is a ski guide in Alaska who commutes by snowmobile everyday to his work and he swears by Smith. He says the only people who wear Oakleys up there are on their first Alaskan winter and haven't learned that they just aren't built for the punishment yet. Plus Smith always has the best deals for people in the industry and stay true to their roots as an outdoor company owned by outdoor enthusiasts. Oakley is a massive fashion company that puts function second to form and is owned by people who could give a crap about bikes and skis. Plus most of the people who wear Oakleys on the street are D-bags who have never seen a pair of skis and couldn't spell "bike" if their life depended on it. I've had a pair of Gascans and two pair of Crowbars and all I can say is...never again

 I don't care what your uncle says. I lived in Alaska for ten years, and still go back a lot. I have used Oakleys the whole time. Bought a pair of i/ox's once, the foam squished in, the field of vision decreased, and the lenses fogged constantly. All in 2 weeks. Ask Sean Pettit, Tanner Hall, Henrik Harlaut, Sammy Carlson, Seth Morrison, Pep Fujas, Kye Peterson, Jacob Wester, Rory Bushfield, Richard Permin. All on Oakley.
  • 1 1
 Those guys get paid to use Oakley...People who don't get paid to use Smith choose to use them. If your I/OXs stopped working then take advantage of their awesome lifetime warranty and great customer service department. Oakley could give a crap if your goggles work and after a year your warranty is gone. Oakley is a fashion company, not a function company. It's like comparing The North Face to Kjus

 Steve Smith isn't on Smith... killer roster though!

 Matt hunter should at least have a bigger section
