KETCHUM, Idaho – Smith Optics is pleased to announce today a two-season partnership with the popular video game franchise, Angry Birds® to license its whimsical graphics on a collection of Smith’s juniors and kids products.

Launching at retail in early Fall 2014, Smith will be introducing dedicated graphics of the stylized wingless birds on the Gambler/Zoom and Sidekick/Zoom combo kits, Daredevil, Gambler and Sidekick goggles, and Gage Jr. and Zoom Jr. helmets.

"The Smith X Angry Birds partnership is really exciting for us. Angry Birds has an amazing following with insane graphic possibilities, and a little bit of irreverence that we feel the market can use these days,” remarked Eric Carlson, VP of Product & Design at Smith Optics. “The combination of our collab items along with our inline graphics makes the 2015 juniors collection the strongest ever for Smith.”

The Smith X Angry Birds products for 2014/15 will be available for order beginning Tuesday, January 28, 2014 with retail shipments arriving after August 15, 2014. Speak to your area sales representative or stop by SIA Booth # 2950/2650 for more information and to place your order.
