Smith made the legendary Maze helmet even better by adding MIPS technology. The Smith Maze MIPS Helmet has the same ultra-light feel and minimalist look as the original, but now has a Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) that reduces potential brain injuries without adding extra bulk or weight.
The science behind MIPS technology is revolutionary, especially for skiers that are so prone to concussions. The Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) allows a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner when your head hits at an angle in order to decrease rotational forces, reducing potential damage to your brain. In-Mold construction fuses EPS foam to a polycarbonate shell to minimize weight and bulk without compromising impact protection.
Smith also added their Airflow Climate Control System that lets you easily open up vents on warm days or long hikes, plus the AirEvac 2 ventilation ensures that your goggles stay fog free. The Maze MIPS has a self-adjusting fit system that is not only comfortable, but also secures your helmet in the correct position on your head in case you end up wiping out. Snapfit SL2 ear pads can be removed if you want to wear a beanie underneath and are audio system-compatible (sold separately).
Lightweight In-Mold Construction – Low profile In-Mold designs combine a polycarbonate shell with EPS liner to provide superior impact protection and extreme light weight.
MIPS System Equipped – In a helmet with the MIPS Brain Protection System, the shell and liner are separated by a low friction layer that allows the helmet to slide relative to the head in and angled impact.
AirEvac 2 Ventilation – AirEvac 2 drives the warm air away from the goggle through external vents and internal channels in the EPS liner.
Airflow Climate Control – Strategically placed vents give you easy climate control in all conditions. Vent placement maximizes airflow and heat exhaustion in warm temperatures while minimizing undesired cold air drafts.
Self-Adjusting Lifestyle Fit System – Elastic in rear of liner adjusts to a range of head sizes.
Snapfit SL Ear Pads – Smith earpads, with their inner surface of technical materials, provide a comfortable seal from the wind and weather on even the stormiest days. For a warm spring day, remove the earpads entirely to reduce weight and maximize cooling. All earpads are fully removable and machine washable.
