Smith Variance Helmet

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Whether cruising down corduroy or exploring backcountry stashes, the Variance offers advanced hybrid shell construction and a highly adjustable fit system for reliable comfort at any speed.


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.
