The Smith Vantage MIPS Helmet offers the ultimate in ski and snowboard worthy protection, style, and comfort, so you can stay safe on the slopes while looking and feeling good. Between the lightweight feel, superior safety technology, and customizable fit and ventilation, there's no excuse not to rock one. 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. 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. AirVac 2 ventilation 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 a sold separately Skullcandy audio system.
