A stylish and feature packed addition to Smith's legendary MTB helmet lineup. The Engage MIPS offers performance and quality in an affordable and low-profile package. Designed for the fashion conscious MTB rider who wants performance that won't break the bank thanks to MIPS technology and a huge range of ventilation channels with goggle and sunglass integration.
For mountain bikers looking for a stylish, great fitting helmet, look no further than the Engage. Coverage is extended on the back of the head for additional protection and the 21 vents will keep riders cool on hot days. The Engage features the secure custom fit of Smith’s VaporFit™ system while the AirEvac™ channels promote airflow to prevent fogging of your eyewear. The Engage also features channels on the front of the helmet for eyewear storage, and a three-position visor that rotates high to allow for goggle storage.
Angled impact creates rotational forces. A helmet integrating MIPS creates a sliding layer between the helmet and the head. This allows the helmet's shell to slide relative to the head when hitting the ground.
This reduces the rotational forces exterted on the head, reducing the potential to damage your brain. This diagram shows the potential for MIPS to reduce violent forces on the brain in certain impacts.
Crafted with ease-of-use and superior comfort in mind, the VaporFit fitting system relies on a tried-and-true rotary dial adjustment system integrated with a tuned elastic fit using engineered shapes.
Each VaporFit system has a full 5cm of rotary adjustability. Additionally, the system can be moved up/down or forward/backward at the attachment points. The result is comfort with a personalized, secure fit.
Ultimate Sunglass Integration
Eyewear and helmets need to integrate first and foremost when worn together. For long climbs or post-ride chats, Smith have integrated an eyewear dock that allows you to easily store your sunglasses back or front-facing.
Ultra-Light Single Layer Webbing
To shave off unnecessary weight an ultra-lightweight single layer of webbing is used on the helmet strap to optimise balance. The webbing is designed to still provide exceptional fitting comfort and security.
Ventilation channels are placed throughout the helmet shell, positioned to maximise airflow through the helmet when on the move, allowing cool air in and exhausting warm air out to boost comfort during exertion.
