Product Info

If you think you're too cool to wear a helmet, you're wrong. Don't even consider heading to the hill without one - take the Smith Variance Helmet with you and ski or board in style and safety. The Variance has a hybrid shell construction, which makes it lightweight and low-profile, but durable, too. Tons of ventilation means your head will never be too hot or too cold, and Snapfit SL Ear Pads can be removed for days when things heat up a bit or you just want to reduce the weight of the helmet. The adjustable Smith x Boa® fit system offers on-the-go micro-adjustment that can be done with one hand and helps you to achieve that just-right fit. It's not cool to not wear a helmet. Keep safe with the Smith Variance Helmet.

Product Details


Hybrid Shell ConstructionSmith's Hybrid Shell construction combines separate lightweight and durable shells to create an entirely new helmet category. By fusing their tough bombshell ABS construction with flyweight In-Mold technology, the Hybrid Shell construction optimizes the favorable traits of each material in this revolutionary process. The result is a modern design that provides a lightweight, low profile, perfectly fitting helmet. Hybrid Shell construction also creates a clean, smooth top surface by enabling the low profile Regulator to function with reduced mass and volume.


AirEvac 2 VentilationAirEvac 2 continues to drive the warm air away from the goggle through external vents and internal channels in the EPS liner.

Low-Profile Dual Regulator Adjustable Climate ControlSmith's Dual Regulator ventilation system independently controls the front and rear sections of the helmet's venting, allowing you to modulate your body temperature even in extremely cold conditions. By exhausting heat through the rear vents while maintaining a sealed front end, your body can effectively cool down if needed and avoid the dreaded "ice cream headache".
