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.

MIPS in action:
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.

This helmet has everything you need in a helmet. It not only offers the protection that you need, but also comfort. It is a helmet that I could wear all day on the mountain and not want to take it off

Pros: State of the Art Protection
Cons: None that I have experienced.

While no helmet can completely eliminate catastrophic brain injury, the Smith with MIPS arguably provides the most complete protection. Yes, it fits great, yes, it's warm, yes, removable ear pieces make it wearable in warmer conditions, but the reason you wear a helmet for protection.

Great helmet: vents are adjustable and inside is really padded and comfortable, adjustment knob doesn't come loose like other helmets I've used, having drop in audio slits is a plus, taken a few hard hits and its held up good.

Fits really well, lots of venting options mean climate control for your dome, and ingenious venting system in the small molded visor keeps air circulating to your goggles.

This helmet is awesome. It has adjustable air vents which are so helpful on days when it is too hot or cold. Also, the visor is a perfect size and most, if not all, goggles fit under it.

I've worn the Smith Vantage helmet for years... it's a great helmet that is warm and comfortable with effective venting for warmer days.
I like that the helmet works very well with the Smith I/O goggles.

Pros: Great ventilation even with the upgraded protection system.
Cons:

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes

This helped provides you with two desired features in a helmet: protection and ventilation. With the new venting design, you can adjust how much air you want to pass-through while you're out there on the mountain. The other feature is the innovative MIPS protection. The foam used in this is designed to absorb any and all impacts rather than allowing them to pass through to the user and suffering injury.

This is a great Smith helmet. I love the adjustable Boa fit system, and the fact that I can run my music through the ear pieces. The adjustable air vents help on those warmer day and went I work up a sweat.
