Epic wipeouts and hard-hitting yard-sales are much easier for your brain box to take when you wear the Smith Women's Valence Helmet. Its Hybrid Shell construction combines a bombshell ABS shell with In-Mold technology to give you a lightweight helmet that can handle the harshest impacts. You'll still feel the cool breeze blow against your head thanks to the AirEvac 2 Ventilation system that pulls cold air under the brim and pushes warm air away from your goggles and through the helmet's eighteen vents. If the breeze is too brisk, you can close up the vents using the regulator adjustable climate control switch found on the top of the helmet. Smith's exclusive x Boa fit system is ergonomically contoured to fit your skull tightly and comfortably with an on-the-fly, single-handed micro-adjuster located at the back of the Valence. Its X-Static performance lining has a women-specific fit and contains antimicrobial features that keep the liner fresh. The Snapfit SL Ear Pads seal around your ears entirely for warmth on a cold day, but you can remove them when spring comes. The ear pads are compatible with Skullcandy audio systems (sold separately) so you can listen to music while you cruise the fresh corduroy.
