As one of the lightest women's-specific certified snow helmets in the world, Smith's Allure provides a clean, timeless shape of the shell that hides the Smith-pioneerd AirEvac technology for superior goggle integration. This low profile helmet delivers enlightend style and a plush, fleeced tricot lining, providing protection you need in a fixed-ventilation helmet.Read more
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.
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.
Airflow Climate Control
Airflow ventilation utilizes strategically placed vents for easy climate control in all conditions. Vent placement maximizes airflow and heat exhaustion in warm temperatures while minimizing undesired cold air drafts. Fabric flaps in the lining design on certain models allow you to open and close the airflow vents for adjustable comfort.
Lifestyle Fit System (LFS)
Built around the forgiving properties of elastic, the self-adjusting Lifestyle Fit System is designed to flex around the wearer's head, providing a dynamic fit that will move as you do. Additional lateral adjustability on the fit system arms allows it to accommodate a wide range of head sizes. With the Lifestyle Fit System, you'll experience comfort and mobility from a fit system you'll never have to think about.
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.
