Smith Quantum Helmet
Protection with maximum horsepower. The Smith Quantum Helmet combines a comprehensive system of advanced protective features, comfort details and functionality. Smith Exoskeleton increases side-impact protection, Aerocore™ Koroyd® construction offers advanced energy absorption, while the MIPS system absorbs oblique forces better than a standard Ski Helmet. Complete with a BOA® fit system and remarkable magnetic clip, the Smith Quantum Helmet covers all bases for zero compromise head protection.
The Smith Quantum Helmet's Multi-Directional Impact Protection System is used to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. By allowing a small rotation of the helmet's outer shell relative to the liner, oblique forces can be better absorbed. So if you have the misfortune to hit your head at an angle, MIPS decreases the rotational force, reducing potential damage to your brain.
The Smith Quantum Helmet's Aerocore™ Construction consists of a complex of co-polymer extruded Koroyd® tubes thermally welded together. This unique structure decelerates and absorbs energy from impact in a way that traditional Ski Helmets can't. Aerocore's™ hollow tubular construction also keeps the Smith Ski Helmet's weight and volume to a minimum, and permits airflow for increased user comfort.
Koroyd® is an advanced core material created by the aerospace industry. It manages energy in a very different way to traditional protection materials - instead of storing and releasing impact energy, like a spring, Koroyd® cores crush homogenously, converting kinetic energy. This deceleration of impact energy reduces final trauma levels. The Smith Quantum Helmet has more Koroyd® panels than any other Smith Ski Helmet.
Smith's innovative Exoskeleton design provides increased protection in key side-impact zones. The Smith Quantum Helmet's Exoskeleton Bombshell panel acts like a car's roll bars, further protecting the side and back of your head if you catch an edge.
The Smith Quantum Helmet's Hybrid Shell pairs a Bombshell ABS shell with an In-Mold EPS liner. The Bombshell ABS shell withstands high-impacts, while offering unparalleled durability, dent and ding resistance. The In-Mold EPS liner stokes up protection, but in a very lightweight format. This revolutionary combination produces a highly protective lightweight, low-profile, perfectly fitting Ski Helmet with a clean, smooth top surface.
Designed to be used as a fully integrated system, the Smith Quantum Helmet's vents correspond with those in Smith Goggles. AirEvac2 pulls warm, fog-causing air up and out of your Ski Goggles, into and through the helmet's AirEvac's venting channels, fianlly exiting through rear exhaust vents, far away from goggles, for crystal-clear vision and comfortable temperature regulation.
Dual Regulator Climate Control
The Smith Quantum Helmet's ventilation system, lets you independently control the front and rear sections of the vents, allowing you to modulate body temperature even in extremely cold conditions. By exhausting heat through the rear vents while maintaining a sealed front end, you can effectively cool down if needed and avoid the dreaded "ice cream headache".
BOA® FS360 Fit System
World-leader in closure systems, Boa® Technology, created this 360 degree 'floating' halo-effect fit system to eliminate hot spots, improving airflow and comfort. Ergonomically contoured, vertically adjustable, and with a micro-adjustable dial system for an extended fit range that accommodates a beanie.
Wayfinder Strap System with Fidlock®
Functional simplicity, the Smith Quantum Helmet uses an updated innovative magnetic clip to buckle-up with, for frustration free operation. Designed to be worked wearing gloves, the Fidlock® can be done-up with a single hand; its Wayfinder Strap ensuring efficient, reliable and simple adjustments.
Lined with a soft and durable XT2 Lining, the Smith Quantum Helmet effectively wicks moisture away from skin, maintaining comfort when pushing the boundaries, or in warmer weather.
Provide a comfortable seal on even the stormiest days. Or remove them completely to max cooling. Cool machine wash when needed.
Slide your Ski Goggle strap under the goggle clip and know that your Ski Goggles will still be there after a close encounter with powder.
