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.
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.
Smith's unique Aerocore shell technology delivers ventilation and impact protection in tandem using a unique honeycomb-like structure. Aerocore is available in many of Smith's leading helmets, including the all-new Mission and women's Mirage designs for 2018/19.
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 pride themselves on making the great days better. With their helmets this means snug-fitting comfort, hard-hitting protection and head-turning style.

Pursue Your Thrill
Mountain-made protective headwear for riders, storm chasers and thrillseekers.
What can you expect from a Smith ski helmet? Let us break it down: premium technology, rocking designs and unbeatable protection. This year is no exception, and new faces enhance this selection further to set it apart.
Joining last season's new faces, the Quantum and Code, we introduce the Mission and Mirage, delivering Aerocore ventilated impact protection at a competitive price point. Familiar faces such as the iconic Smith Vantage helmet return for yet another year on the hill.
Smith Helmet Features
MIPS is a low-friction membrane contained within a wide range of Smith helmets. You won't feel it, or see it (unless you strip out your helmet liner!), but it's there. If you ever stack and take a knock to the head, this is when MIPS starts doing its thing.
There is rarely anything straightforward about head impacts. The low-friction MIPS membrane reduces rotational energy being transferred to the brain from angled impacts, giving you extra protection and peace of mind when zipping down the piste or charging the backcountry.
MIPS Brain Protection
The multi-directional impact protection system
Uniquely engineered for unbeatable protection
A truly unique technology amongst snow helmets, Smith utilise the remarkable qualities of Koroyd to create Aerocore, a superior impact-resistant shell which stands above conventional construction methods by offering comfort as well as impact protection.
Aerocore's honeycomb-like structure not only gives exceptional impact protection, it's also incredibly airy. With the additional inclusion of adjustable vents on the Vantage and Quantum designs, it makes for the most comfortable helmets out there!
For many music adds to the thrill of the mountain exeprience. For those needing their soundtrack fix or just wanting to stay connected to the world, Smith have got you covered with audio-compatible ear pads across their entire range.
These audio-ready ear pads have been designed to be a perfect fit for Outdoor Tech's line of audio Chips accessories. Just connect, drop them in and rock out or take phone calls when on the snow. Cast your eyes over our selection!

Smith Quantum Helmet Technology
Skiers and boarders are more aware than ever about keeping safe on the snow. Smith heeded their calls for a helmet design that is lighter, tougher, comfier and better looking than anything else on the market. The result was the Quantum.
Quantum uses Smith's unique Aerocore construction and exoskeleton design for impact protection where you need it most. Sculpted with futuristic lines but a traditional brim, Quantum is a modern, trendy design that performs as well as it looks!
Introducing The Quantum
Protection with maximum horsepower.
Combining the best of hard shell and in-mold materials, the Quatumn is toughest where you need it most, while trimming weight to give the most comfortable wear possible.
Utilising Koroyd material, this game-changing construction method is tough to boot, with unmatched airflow capacity. Combined with adjustable vents, the fit is the freshest around!
Skimping on little details can spoil a performance helmet. Smith took no shortcuts here. A magnetic Fidlock buckle gives a no-fuss, secure clip even wearing gloves.
Smith Code Helmet Technology
Introducing The Code
Innovative. Minimalism. Unlocked.
Style-conscious riders no longer need to fret over the protective capabilities of their snow helmet. Engineered to break convention, Smith's new Code ticks all boxes with a low-profile look that doesn't compromise on protection.
Elegant simplicity is the name of the game with the Code, but beneath this lid's minimal exterior is enough technology to keep pace with some of the biggest names on the market, including an Aerocore shell and a low-friction MIPS membrane.
The honeycomb-like structure of Aerocore not only holds up better against impact than conventional helmet liners, it also gives far superior ventilation to keep you feeling fresh.
BOA Fit System
No need to sweat over the details with BOA. This dial-actuated fitting system lets you tweak in the perfect fit, first time. This means a safer helmet that wears better for those long mountain days.
You shouldn't need to get undressed just to fasten a strap buckle. Fidlock uses magnets to snap into place quickly, simply and easily even if you're wearing your best mittens.
