Smith Phenom 2013 - 2012 Review by The Good Ride
A medium to large sized goggle with a fan to give a little more venting for those that fog up goggles. Even without the fan, this is still a high-end goggle and it makes for a good choice for those that ride many days in the year and require better optics. If you steam up your goggles often then the Turbo fan will work well. It does make a noise that can be a bit annoying to some but others don’t seem to mind. Some also don’t like the fan on the side of the head and feel it can be a bit annoying. Still, this is a pretty cool idea and it’s more than a gimmick. The Turbo fan does a good job keeping your goggles steam/fog free.

I've gone through two pairs of Phenoms (both without fan). The first pair I got in a Breckenridge store. They were without a doubt the best pair of goggles I've ever known. Well over 100 days and never fogged up. The second pair I got off of Amazon last summer and they fogged up a ton this year. I need to buy some cat crap or something for them.
