The Allure delivers enlightened style and a plush, fleeced tricot lining in the world's lightest certified snow helmet.
Today's riders are going faster, farther, and riding more aggressively than their predecessors. Tomorrow's riders will wear Smith.
To meet their challenges, it will require protection to be reinvented. What does "protection reinvented" mean? For Smith, it means that we will strive to create helmets that exceed safety standards. How will we do this? By focusing on the four types of impact: low speed, high speed, rotational, and multiple-impact.
Each of these impact types requires a different approach, a different philosophy, a different technology. To go forward, we are creating a Four Pillars of Design ethos. A belief in building the best helmet we can to meet as many of these pillars at one time as possible.
At Smith, we design helmets and goggles to work together as a fully integrated system. For the helmet line, the most important factor in integration is the AirEvac ventilation system. This is the bridge that allows goggles and helmets to function as one system, venting warm moist air away from the goggles, through the helmet climate control system and ultimately away from the head.
Ultimate integration starts with the precise fit of the Smith goggle and helmet. Our helmets are designed to match the curvature of the goggle frame, eliminating "gaper gap" and allowing precise alignment between the helmet AirEvac and the goggle venting systems.
Airevac 2: Constant Airflow-
AirEvac 2 continues to drive the warm air away from the goggle through external vents and internal channels in the EPS liner. Internal airflow can be adjusted through the helmet's Regulator climate control system.
The performance standard for many years, In-Mold construction creates a PC shell helmet with and EPS liner to maximize weight reduction. Lightweight, comfortable and offering value for every ounce, In-Mold construction is the flyweight winner.
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 eff iciently and when combined with MIPS, Smith helmets absorb oblique forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner.
MIPS IN ACTION
When you fall to the ground at an angle rotational forces are generated. A helmet integrating MIPS technology creates a sliding layer between the outer shell and the head. This allows the helmet's outer shell to slide relative to the head when hitting the ground, so the rotational force is decreased, reducing the potential to damage your brain.
