By fusing our tough bombshell ABS construction with flyweight In-Mold technology, our 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 profiles, perfectly fitting helmet. Hybrid Shell construction also creates a clean, smooth top surface by enabling the low profiles Regulator to function with reduced mass and volume. REGULATOR – Adjustable, easy to use and extremely effective climate control, our low profile Regulator ventilation system allows you to modify the amount of airflow and heat exhaust even with a gloved hand. EARPADS – Smith earpads, with their inner surface of technical materials, provide a comfortable seal from the wind and weather on even the stormiest days. For a warm spring day, remove the earpads entirely to reduce weight and maximize cooling. All earpads are fully removable and machine washable. GOGGLE CLIPS – All Smith helmets feature removable goggle clips on the rear of the helmet. Just slide your goggle strap under the goggle clip and know that your goggles will still be there after sending it head over heels through blower powder. Alternately, remove the goggle clip for a weight reduction and clean silhouette while wearing your goggles under your helmet. Customize your helmet for your best days.
