The Smith Vantage MIPS Helmet is now available in a women's specific version. For concussion safety, the Vantage uses Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS). MIPS technology allows a small amount of rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner; the result is if you crash, your head hits the ground at an angle, rather than straight on, which decreases rotational forces and, subsequently, reduces potential damage to your brain. Smith also engineered the Vantage MIPS with Aerocore construction, which combines lightweight EPS with revolutionary Koroyd material. This unique material absorbs more impact than traditional foams while simultaneously improving breathability and reducing weight and bulk.
The Smith Vantage has a huge array of air vents, so you'll never have to worry about being too hot or too cold again. The Vantage utilizes AirVac 2 ventilation system, that features twenty-one vents that can be fully opened on warm spring days, partially closed when temps drop, or completely shut in the middle of a blizzard. The BOA FS360 fit system allows you to quickly and easily dial in the perfect fit. Snapfit S12 ear pads can be removed in warmer weather, and they're also audio-compatible with systems like the Smith x Outdoor Tech CHIPS.
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.
Hybrid SL Shell Construction – Smith's Hybrid Shell construction combines two separate lightweight and durable shells to create a new helmet category. Tough ABS hardshell construction is fused with flyweight In-Mold technology, optimizing the best traits of each.
Aerocore™ Construction – Smith's Aerocore™ design increases airflow, improves temperature regulation and anti-fog capability, and enhances impact resistance. Aerocore™ uses a unique honeycomb material called Koroyd® that is superior for both airflow and impact absorption.
BOA® FS360 Fit System – The BOA® FS360 system uses a full halo design that offers both forward and lateral adjustment, and creates a "floating" effect that eliminates hot spots.
AirEvac 2 Ventilation – AirEvac 2 drives the warm air away from the goggle through external vents and internal channels in the EPS liner.
