The Smith Women's Vantage MIPS Helmet will make sure you still have a few brain cells left at the end of this snowboard season. Multi directional Impact Protection System, more commonly known as MIPS, is a new innovation for brain busting prevention. MIPS uses a thin inner layer that rotates ever so slightly in order to disperse impacts across the whole helmet instead of the point of contact. This proven technology reduces the potential to damage your brain drastically. MIPS isn't the only innovative technology that makes the Vantage one of the best helmets on the market. Its Hybrid SL shell places bombshell ABS on top and lightweight, in mold PC around the sides for a low profile, perfect fitting helmet. Aerocore construction uses specialized Koroyd foam for improved airflow, ventilation, impact resistance, and fog free vision. Boa's FS360 adjustable system has a wrap around halo design for a truly secure fit. AirEvac 2 ventilation uses a low profile dual regulation that lets you open and close the front half, back half, or all 21 vents for optimized climate control. The goggle lock and Snapfit SL2 ear pads are removable, and you can insert Skullcandy audio systems into the ear pads for a musical fiesta in terrain parks and powder filled bowls.
