You get the best of two worlds with the hybrid construction of the Smith Variance Helmet - tough hard shell construction on the top where the helmet takes some invariable knocks, and lighter energy absorbing in-mold construction in the lower. The Variance delivers the same type of high tech protection as the more expensive Vantage, but at a much lower price point. If you can live with slightly less adjustability in the fit and airflow departments, this is the helmet for you.
Hybrid Shell Construction Smith's Hybrid Shell construction combines two separate lightweight and durable shells to create a new helmet category. Tough ABS hardshell construction is fused with flyweight In-Mold technology, optimizing the best traits of each.
Regulator Adjustable Climate Control Easy to use slider system makes it simple to change the amount of airflow even with gloves on.
AirEvac 2 Ventilation AirEvac 2 drives the warm air away from the goggle through external vents and internal channels in the EPS liner.
