Smith Smith Men's Altus Snowsports helmet

Style: E00508

You love a good storm day as much as carving under blue skies. The Smith Altus ski and snowboard helmet lets you adjust the venting on the fly to match the weather conditions and your output. Of course, it brings safety innovations including zonal Koroyd® and MIPS® for the confidence to get after it in any snow conditions, too. It's light enough for backcountry missions and cuts a classic profile.

  • Zonal Koroyd® coverage for lightweight, energy-absorbing and ventilated impact protection
  • MIPS® Brain Protection System reduces rotational forces caused by angled impacts to the head
  • Certification: ASTM F 2040, CE EN 1077:2007 CLASS B
  • Designed for ultimate integration with Smith goggles for maximum comfort and venting
  • AirEvac™ ventilation system integrates with Smith goggles for fog-free lenses
  • VaporFit Snow™ dial adjustment system offers 270-degree fit adjustment with the turn of a dial
  • Removable, audio-compatible ear pads XT2® antimicrobial lining offers sweat-activated odor control 10 vents

In-Mold Construction
The performance standard for many years, In-Mold construction creates a PC shell helmet with and EPS liner to maximize weight reduction. Lightweight, comfortable and offering value for every ounce, In-Mold construction is the flyweight winner.

MIPS: Multi-Directional Impact System
MIPS is used to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. Smith helmets are created to absorb direct impacts very efficiently and when combined with MIPS, Smith helmets absorb oblique forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner. When you fall to the ground at an angle rotational forces are generated. A helmet integrating MIPS technology creates a sliding layer between the outer shell and the head. This allows the helmet's outer shell to slide relative to the head when hitting the ground, so the rotational force is decreased, reducing the potential to damage your brain.

AirEvac™
At Smith, they design helmets and goggles to work together as a fully integrated system. For the helmet line, the most important factor in integration is the AirEvac ventilation system. This is the bridge that allows goggles and helmets to function as one system, venting warm moist air away from the goggles, through the helmet climate control system and ultimately away from the head. Ultimate integration starts with the precise fit of the Smith goggle and helmet. Smith helmets are designed to match the curvature of the goggle frame, eliminating 'gaper gap' and allowing precise alignment between the helmet AirEvac and the goggle venting systems.
