Smith stars in the spectacular event "Pow Wow Railbattle 06 in Augsburg"

At the beginning of November the city of Augsburg in Germany hosted the second edition of the “POW WOW RAILBATTLE”. Over a hundred of the world's most fearless and competitive snowboarders met in the “Willy Brand Plazt” to thrill their fans with a weekend of sensational performances on their boards.

SMITH, a world leader for over 30 years in the production of sunglasses and goggles for ski and snowboard, was among the stars of this event that attracted a huge audience, with thousands of spectators cheering for their favourite athletes in competition to win the coveted scepter.

The German DANIEL SCHIESSL, testimonial for SMITH sunglasses and goggles, was the hands-down winner of the competition “Freeski” and amazed the jury and spectators with his performance on the ramp, which was as high as 12 metres.

During his breathtaking acrobatics the German champion wore the “FUSE” ski goggles, with their striking and unmistakable style. These goggles feature innovative characteristics such as the double lens patented Carbonic TM Regulator and an Outrigger Positioning System TM technology that is a special painting, lined on the inside with extremely comfortable materials. They come complete with a stretch back and closing clips that give a perfect fit with or without a helmet. They also give a fogless vision.

In addition the models come in striking colours that are customised with highly original graphic effects.

The quality of SMITH ski goggles and sunglasses is guaranteed by Safilo Group.
