MIPS technology (Multi-directional impact protection 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.
Hybrid Shell Technology
Introducing Smith's new revolutionary Hybrid Construction Technology. Separate lightweight and durable shells merge to create an entirely new helmet category. Hybrid construction fuses two proven technologies by combing a tough ABS upper shell with a flyweight in-mold liner into a sleek, low profile, and modern design. Hybrid construction also creates a clean smooth top surface by enabling the low profile Regulator to function with reduced mass and volume.
Smith x BOA® Fit System
A custom developed, Smith exclusive piece. Building on the proven fit of our ergonomic head form, it offers an intuitive dial system for on-the-fly, single-handed micro-adjustment. This three-quarter haloed design offers key features of self-centering and vertical adjustability, allowing the user to achieve a perfectly customized fit.
AirEvac 2 maximizes goggle and helmet integration to alleviate goggle fogging and increased ventilation by allowing fog-causing moist air to evacuate from the goggle and helmet by channeling air across the user's head to exhaust it at the rear.
After a recent accident my husband bought me a new Smith MIPS helmet. Not only does it protect my head, it has a nice fit, is light weight, warm and is good looking! I love it.
