Product Info

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.

Product Details


Hybrid Shell ConstructionSmith'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 ControlEasy to use slider system makes it simple to change the amount of airflow even with gloves on.

Great Helmet, highly recommended


from Metamora, MI 48455, USA

Comments about Smith Variance Helmet:

I'm a ski patroller and have quite the gear collection. The variance helmet I purchased last year has been easily been my all time favorite. Couple it with some smith I/O 7's and you're hard pressed to find a more comfortable and/or higher performing combination. As for the people pointing out in reviews who has the right of way and so on, please know this... It is up to everyone on the slopes to know the skier / snowboarder responsibility codes for conduct. Nowhere in the individuals review stating a lady cut him off did he mention the specifics. Perhaps she was on a different run and cut over, in which case he would've had the right of way.. That is, when traversing runs you must yield to those up-hill from you on the run you are entering. No need to semi-attack people without the facts. Even with the facts, this might not be the place for it. All that said, be safe out there!
