Smith tease something big, coming August 15…

SMITH_TEASER_AUG15While we’ve been asked to keep mum on the details until the morning of August 15th, the folks at Smith were on hand at PressCamp to show us the next big thing for the company.  Although their new project isn’t 100% ready for the spotlight, we can say that it is pretty impressive and that we’re excited to share when the time comes.  Until then, we have the image above… We know that Bikerumor readers are a clever bunch- anyone care to speculate after the break?

(Hint: it’s not a Campy seatpost.)

GPS Goggles?? video, too?

logic - 06/18/13 - 3:57pm

Beer goggles. Please god…beer goggles

Multi-season helmet for bike and [snow]board?

ChrisC - 06/18/13 - 4:17pm

I’m betting it’s some kind of MTB version of their I/O Recon ski goggles…

Steve @ G4G - 06/18/13 - 4:18pm

Blue Blockers in a convertible form to go from goggles to glasses?

Matt in CA - 06/18/13 - 4:22pm

Sunglass arms integrated/mounted on a new helmet—probably road‚ or maybe some kind of flip-up visor. Maybe they’re partnering with an existing helmet brand.

Mat - 06/18/13 - 4:25pm

Multi-sport helmets with integrated eyewear and recon modules?

ChrisC - 06/18/13 - 4:47pm

Maybe it’s way simpler than we’re guessing… Smith already makes snowsport and motorsport helmets, so maybe they’re introducing a line of cycling helmets.

Adam - 06/18/13 - 4:56pm

I’d say new bike helmets that mate up to their new cycling goggles.

Rogue Asset - 06/18/13 - 5:01pm

A/R interface?

Mr. P - 06/18/13 - 5:48pm

Split board that can add wheels


Craig - 06/18/13 - 6:15pm

A new line of bandanas that can be worn in snow or sun.

Ocelot - 06/18/13 - 7:24pm

Some kind of Google Glass-style HUD, probably made in conjunction with another company. And obviously MTB helmets – though hopefully not just their ski/board ones with a different liner.

ccr - 06/18/13 - 8:22pm

A new way to rob banks in all seasonal extremes.

Volsung - 06/18/13 - 8:44pm

650b compatible helmet.

Conundrum - 06/19/13 - 1:40am

Climate control bros. No weird temps, no fog in the winter. No high temps in the summer, no sweat dripping on your lenses.

Chipollini - 06/19/13 - 1:49am

Volsung for the win!

NE - 06/19/13 - 4:00am

It would be very natural for Smith to move into the bike-helmet industry. The snow-helmet pictured has been made extremely light and is very vell vented due to the honeycomb core/liner.!folio/project-2.html

So I’m betting on some sort of bikehelmet.

Big Gravy - 06/19/13 - 10:12am

The teaser ad says it all. Integration. It is a helmet/goggle system.

jose - 06/19/13 - 12:26pm

Volsung wins.
