Product Info

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.

Product Details

Construction

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.

Ventilation

Low Profile Dual Regulator Climate ControlDual Regulator system independently controls the front and rear sections of the helmet, allowing you to perfectly modulate temperature even in extremely cold condtions.

AirEvac VentilationAirEvac drives the warm air away from the goggle through external vents and internal channels in the EPS liner.

18 Vents

Fit

Smith x BOA® Adjustment SystemThis 3/4 haloed fit system is offered exclusively by Smith, and offers the user a perfect, centered fit with single handed, on-the-fly operation.
