Far more than "just a helmet," Smith's Mission MIPS delivers exceptional protection in an understated, streamlined package. In-Mold construction and an Aerocore shell combine to create an exceptionally lightweight yet protective design, with the added protective aspect of MIPS.
Where classic styling meets everlasting value, the Mission brings the proven fit and function of Smith helmets to an audience who will never again call this piece of gear “just a helmet.”
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 use of Koroyd, a material that absorbs more energy upon impact when compared to international standards, while enhancing airflow. Aerocore construction allows for more vents to be placed throughout the helmet with no compromise on protection or comfort.
Koroyd's precise and unique thermal welding process leads to a structure with both extremely efficient energy absorption properties. Upon impact, the cores crush in a controlled manner, decelerating the energy from the impact and reducing the final trauma levels.
Thousands of co-polymer extruded tubes thermally welded to create a consistent and fully engineered core. Each Koroyd section is engineered to precise durometer, size, and thickness specifications to provide the greatest impact resistance and consistent presentation.
Koroyd is fully breathable with no compromise on impact performance. The open cell structure allows cool air in while exhausting hot air. This construction integrates with internal channels to create the full Aerocore construction to provide ventilated protection.
An injection-moulded polycarbonate shell is wrapped around an EPS liner. A tough yet super-light design that keeps the fit of the helmet comfortable for prolonged wear.
Expanded polystyrene (EPS) coats the inside of the helmet shell to absorb energy by compressing in the event of impact, reducing the risk of head injury.
The multi-directional impact protection system. A low-friction membrane absorbs rotational energy from oblique impact, reducing violent forces on the brain and associated injury.
Fit & Comfort Technology
DFS2 Fit System
The Dial Fit System utilises intuitive righty-tighty and lefty-loosey adjustment for quick, easy, on-the-fly tweaking and a comfortable fit every time.
Regulator Adjustable Vents
Adjustable, easy to use and extremely effective climate control, low-profile Regulator ventilation allows you to modify the amount of airflow even with a gloved hand.
Audio Compatible Ear Pads
