The Smith Variance Helmet protects your noggin so you can continue the risky business of shooting tight tree gaps, pointing it out of gun-barrel chutes, and sending it in the park. Based off the best-selling Variant, the Variance's Hybrid Shell construction combines a Bombshell ABS shell with In-Mold polycarbonate technology to provide an optimal fit around your dome that can handle tough impacts. The AirEvac 2 ventilation system pulls cold air in through the brim and pushes warm air away from your goggles to keep your vision fog-free, and the adjustable Regulator vents let you dial in the perfect temperature when you're getting rowdy. The Variance can close down tight around your dome thanks to Smith's exclusive Smith x Boa Fit System that offers an intuitive dial in the back for on-the-fly, single-handed micro-adjustments. Its Nanosilver lining has antimicrobial features that keep the lining clean and fresh, and the Snapfit SL earpads provide a cozy seal around your ears while offering the options to remove them if you want a bit of fresh air. The earpads also work with Skullcandy audio systems (sold separately) so your favorite tunes can provide the stoke while the helmet provides the protection.
