Smith Optics x Hart & Huntington collaborate for signature goggle

Ketchum, ID (April 28, 2009) — Smith Optics and Hart & Huntington are pleased to announce a collaboration which will bring Smith's industry defining goggle technology to H&H's unique sense of tattoo-driven style. This coming weekend at the Las Vegas Supercross, fans and industry alike will be given a sneak peak at this special edition project, introducing Hart & Huntington Motogoggles by Smith Optics.

"Hart and Huntington is very excited to be collaborating with Smith Optics. Smith is such a solid name in motocross, snow, and lifestyle, that we knew it was going to be a perfect match. All of our Supercross riders love the product and are looking forward to wearing the new Hart and Huntington goggle at the Vegas Supercross!" said Carey Hart, owner of Hart & Huntington Tattoo Company.

Using Smith's new Fuel v2 goggle as the canvas, Hart & Huntington are dropping the art, taking tattoo needle to eyewear, the result of which is a product that takes goggle aesthetics to a new level. You can catch a preview of this fall release this weekend in Las Vegas at Carter Motorsports on Friday May 1, in the Hart & Huntington pits on Saturday May 2, and at the entrance to Carey Hart's new nightclub, Wasted Space, inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino all weekend long.

"Collaborating with Hart and Huntington is an exciting and refreshing project and having them come to us as the leaders in goggle technology, performance, and quality is an honor and speaks volumes to what we have built here at Smith Optics. The graphic treatments they have created are going to blow people away," said Smith's Motorsports General Manager, Mark Phares.
