Like layering up for a powder day, pulling on the Smith Mirage ski and snowboard helmet is a sure sign of a good day to come. Its lightweight design brings the latest safety innovations including MIPS™ and zonal Koroyd® for enhanced energy absorption in the event of a crash. Because you head to the mountain in all conditions, adjustable vents let you dial in the climate control.Read more
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.
Aerocore™ construction Featuring Koroyd®
Smith's objective and design philosophy behind Aerocore™ construction is to increase airflow, improve temperature regulation resulting in fog-free vision and improve impact resistance. The objective was achieved through the combination of materials such as EPS and Koroyd®, a revolutionary new material that absorbs more energy upon impact when compared to international standards, while increasing airflow. Aerocore™ construction through the use of Koroyd® and EPS allows for more vents to be placed throughout the helmet without sacrificing protection and comfort.
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.
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.
Great helmet for the price . super soft. perfect fit. best ski helmet
I love this helmet - the inner lining is super nice and warm, and the vents are easy to adjust with gloves on. I also appreciate the MIPS rating for extra reassurance when we're out on adventures. I got a Medium and found it was true to size based on the measurement charts. It shipped super fast and came at a great price. Thanks!
