Camber used to be for your skis or board, but Smith's bringing it to your dome with the new Camber MIPS Helmet. Employing top-shelf MIPS technology, which features a shell that rotates over the EPS impact foam to save your brain in rotational (see: the most common) impacts, the Camber's design takes protection, ventilation, and comfort to the next level. Most significantly, it uses Aerocore construction, an uber-lightweight design that's packed with Koroyd, a honeycomb-style composite, to provide increased levels of protection at minimal weights. Don't be afraid of feeling like you jammed your head into a sweaty toadstool, either. Smith's in-mold construction gives the Camber sleek style, and the AirEvac 2 ventilation system has Regulator adjustable vents, so you can open up during spring shredding or batten down the hatches during epic February dumps. The Dial Fit System cinches the helmet's internals down around your skull for a snug, wobble-free fit, and the X-Static lining pulls moisture away from your dome while preventing the growth of odor-causing bacteria, so you won't have to roll down the windows on the way down the canyon. The Camber's Snapfit SL2 earpads are also compatible with audio systems, because you can't send 'er without the proper stoke coursing through your ear canals.

Smith Optics Snow Gear Smith Camber Helmet - MIPS-Matte Black-Medium H16CAMBMDMIPS. The Smith Camber utilizes ultra-light In-Mold construction to minimize mass and maximize ventilation without sacrificing one ounce of protection or style. MIPS sets a new standard in helmet safety. Developed by brain surgeons and scientists to reduce rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head. The secret behind MIPS' unique patented technology comes from the human brain. The brain is surrounded by a low-friction cushion of cerebrospinal fluid that protects it by allowing it to slide slightly on impact. MIPS imitates the brain's way of protecting itself by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer between the outer shell and the liner which also slides to absorb much of the energy created by an angled blow to the head. Conventional helmets are tested by dropping them vertically onto a flat surface. MIPS is designed to deal with how most accidents occur with angled impacts to the head. MIPS sets a new standard in helmet safety.
