Every step of the way Smith have strived to push the boundaries of what is possible, integrating performance and style for those seeking both. Not everything Smith do is for everyone, but those who speak the universal language of genuine stoke know that Smith make the great days better. Smith have four key considerations when producing their helmets: protection, fit, comfort and integration with their goggles. Numerous tech features have been developed around these core concepts, and the result is one of the broadest ranges of premium ski helmets around.

Heritage

In 1965 Dr. Bob Smith, a dentist by trade, made the first ever goggle featuring a sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam. This revolutionised the powder skiing experience, and would make Smith Optics a worldwide brand in the years to come.

Features

Adjustable ventilation channels, adjustable fit systems, and the revolutionary Aerocore technology are all definining elements of the Smith range. MIPS technology is now a common fixture, adding an extra level of protection from brain injury.

Style

Our Smith range features models at every price point, meeting every demand and taste with shapes and styles for men, women and children. These helmets pair up perfectly with our range of Smith goggles. Check them out here!


Smith started making ski and snowboard helmets because they knew they could make them better. Experience the results of complete ski goggle - helmet integration.

Smith Goggles - Helmet Construction

Hybrid Shell Construction

HYBRID SHELL CONSTRUCTION

Smith’s Hybrid Shell construction combines separate lightweight and durable shells to create an entirely new helmet category.

By fusing tough bombshell ABS construction with flyweight In-Mold technology, this construction optimizes the favourable traits of each material.

The result is a modern design that provides a lightweight, low profile, perfectly fitting helmet.

FEATURED HELMETS

  • Vantage
  • Vantage MIPS
  • In-Mold Shell Construction

    IN-MOLD SHELL CONSTRUCTION

    The performance standard for many years, In-Mold construction creates a PC shell helmet with an EPS liner to maximize weight reduction.

    Lightweight, comfortable and offering value for every ounce, In-Mold construction is the flyweight winner.

    FEATURED HELMETS

  • Compass
  • Pivot MIPS
  • Maze
  • Maze MIPS
  • Allure
  • Bombsell Construction

    BOMBSHELL CONSTRUCTION

    Bombshell construction uses an injection molded ABS shell to withstand high-impacts andoffer unparalleled durability, dent, and ding resistance.

    If you expect your helmet to be as tough as your truck, Bombshell delivers.

    FEATURED HELMETS

  • Gage
  • Holt 2
  • Holt Jr 2

  • Smith Helmets - MIPS Technology

    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.

    Smith Helmets - MIPS Technology

    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.


    Smith Helmets - Aerocore Technology

    The design philosophy behind Aerocore™ circulation is to increase airflow and improve temperature regulation, resulting in fog-free vision and improved impact resistance. These goals were achieved through the combination of materials such as EPS and Koroyd®, a revolutionary new material that absorbs more energy upon impact when compared to international standards, while enhancing airflow. Aerocore™ construction through the use of Koroyd® and EPS allows for more vents to be placed throughout the helmet with no compromise on protection or comfort.

    Smith Goggles - Co-Ops

    Every product is a curation, a meaningful blend of modern taste and proven performance. Combined, the two deliver a sublime fusion of style and function. Smith carefully consider their partnerships to provide a blend of two ideas into something unique and new.


    Smith Goggles - Woolrich

    Woolrich (@woolrichinc)

    For over 180 years Woolrich has been synonymous with quality outdoor clothing. The company was founded in Pennsylvania to manufacture fabric for the wives of hunters, loggers and trappers who lived in the area. Even today, Woolrich remains a family business. For the second year running, Woolrich and Smith have combined to create a truly unique range. Designers from each dug by hand through the archives of wool to come up with this year's patterns.

    Smith Goggles - High Fives

    High Fives Foundation (@hi5sfoundation)

    Based at Lake Tahoe, the High Fives Foundation is a non-profit group which aims to support the dreams of mountain action sport athletes by raising injury prevention awareness, while also providing resources and inspiration to those who suffer life-changing injuries. Smith has collaborated with High Fives to support the effort and make meaningful products close to the heart. Sales of these colours will go to supporting the foundation and their effort to create a safety net for those doing what they love.
