Because stoke factor is gender-blind, we brought the Vantage Women's into the mix. Using Aerocore construction that features Koroyd, it simultaneously maximizes full coverage protection and increased airflow. For the most custom fit, the Vantage Women's offers the women's specific X-Static lining, as well as the Boa 360 fit system, with a 360° halo design. Combine all this with the Smith-pioneered AirEvac2 technology for goggle integration, and the Vantage Women's delivers the perfect blend of technology and style.
MIPS is used to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. Smith helmets are created to absorb direct impacts very efficiently and when combined with MIPS, Smith helmets absorb oblique forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner. When you fall to the ground at an angle, rotational forces are generated. A helmet integrating MIPS technology creates a sliding layer between the outer shell and the head. This allows the helmet's outer shell to slide relative to the head when hitting the ground, so the rotational force is decreased, reducing the potential to damage your brain.
BOA FS360 FIT SYSTEM
Taking customized fit to the next level, Smith introduces the Boa FS360 Fit System. With a full 360-degree halo design, this system advances the category by offering both forward and lateral fit adjustments. Feel the fit system snug to the head in a full halo, allowing for a "floating" effect that eliminates helmet hot spots. Offering Boa's standard intuitive dial system for on-the-fly micro-adjustability, along with vertical adjustment options, the Boa FS360 Fit System is a best-in-class fit system, offered in Smith's market-leading Vantage helmet.
