Smith Optics launch the new Bobcat performance eyewear. Offering complete coverage and protection across sport disciplines and seasons, the new Bobcat sunglass provides the features and innovations of its bestselling counterpart, the Wildcat, in a smaller face fit and lightweight feel. The versatile crossover design with a modern fit and fierce flare pairs goggle-like performance with the airflow and comfort of a sunglass to support a vast range of adventures, from enduro trail rides to backcountry powder missions.

Enduro trail riding to gravel adventure or backcountry powder mission, the Smith Bobcat sunglasses are for riders and skiers who want the full coverage of the Wildcat with a smaller fit and a lightweight feel. This hybrid design pairs goggle-like coverage with the airflow and easy-wear feel of sunglasses. ChromaPop™ brings out the details on forested trails and in bright alpine bowls. The lens is interchangeable, and a clear lens is included for low-light needs. No-slip fit details keeps them in place through rocky terrain and high-speed descents.

Constructed from EvolveTM bio-based frame material with adjustable flex, the 5-base lens curvature of the Bobcat has a slight wraparound fit across the seven colour options. Offered exclusively in interchangeable ChromaPopTM lenses – including a Photochromic Clear to Gray option – designed to cut glare while enhancing contrast, definition, natural colour and unmatched clarity on forested trails and in bright alpine bowls. A secondary clear bonus lens is also included for low-light conditions.

Flexible autolock hinges hold the Bobcat frame open for putting them on and off the face easily with one hand, while the addition of megol temples and two-position adjustable nosepads provide non-slip grip so they stay on the face through rocky terrain and high-speed descents.
