Smith Variance Helmet

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying: | Smith Helmets > It never hurts when a piece of gear happens to look great and perform well at the same time. Enter the Smith Variance MIPS Helmet. Its hybrid shell construction combines tough ABS hardshell tech on top with flyweight in-mold innovation closer to your noggin for ideal levels of impact-resistance. The Variance is MIPS-equipped - meaning it does a better job of absorbing shock from oblique (read: angled) forces - while a Dual Regulator Climate Control System paired with AirEvac 2 Ventilation drives warm air away from your head when it's time to turn it up to eleven. Coming in at a slightly more palatable price-point than its ever-popular Vantage older sibling, the Smith Variance MIPS Helmet is a solid tech-equipped selection for snow enthusiasts this season. ASTM F 2040 Low Profile Dual Regulator Climate Control Dual Regulator system independently controls the front and rear sections of the helmet, allowing you to perfectly modulate temperature even in extremely cold condtions.
