Smith Vantage MIPS Ski Helmet

Topped-off with a generous scoop of style, the Smith Vantage MIPS Ski Helmet provides the very best head protection for nailing your line in the backcountry or ripping up the corduroy on-piste. The Smith Vantage MIPS Ski Helmet combines all of the technology-packed performance of the standard Vantage Ski Helmet with the addition of Smith's new MIPS system to reduce the chance of injuring your head even further.

MIPS

Smith's Multi-Directional Impact Protection System is used to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. All Smith Ski Helmets are created to absorb direct impacts very efficiently and when combined with MIPS, a Smith Ski Helmet absorbs oblique forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner. This allows the helmet's outer shell to slide relative to the head when hitting the ground at an angle, so the rotational force is decreased, reducing potential damage to your brain.

Hybrid SL Shell Construction

Smith's Hybrid SL Shell Construction fuses In-Mold construction with Bombshell Material. In-Mold Construction - which bonds the poly carbonate (PC) shell directly to an extended polystyrene (EPS) liner - protects the lower portion of the helmet, for flyweight impact protection. 

Smith's Bombshell Construction over the top of the head uses an ABS shell to withstand high-impacts, while offering unparalleled durability, dent and ding resistance. This revolutionary combination produces a lightweight, low-profile, perfectly fitting Ski Helmet with a clean, smooth top surface.

AEROCORE™ with Koroyd®

This construction offers four primary benefits:

  • Increased impact resistance. Koroyd® is a revolutionary new material that absorbs more energy upon impact when compared to international standards. It is constructed from thousands of co-polymer extruded tubes thermally welded together, creating impact protection with excellent ventilation. Upon impact, Koroyd's® cores crush in a completely controlled manor, decelerating the energy from the impact and reducing the final trauma levels.
  • Increased airflow and ventilation. AEROCORE™ Koroyd®'s hollow cores allow fresh air in and heat from your head out. AEROCORE™ construction also enables more vents to be used in the Vantage Ski Helmet.
  • AEROCORE™ enables both weight and volume to be reduced.
  • The extra ventilation ensures fog-free vision when combined with a Smith Ski Goggle.

Smith AirEvac 2

When you wear a Smith Ski Goggle with a Smith Ski Helmet the vents along the top of the goggle will correspond with those in the helmet. The AirEvac 2 system generates maximum airflow, pulling warm, fog-causing air up and out of your Ski Goggles and through your helmet, leaving you with crystal-clear vision.


BOA® FS360 Fit System

Boa® Technology - the world's leader in closure systems - has produced this full 360 degree halo fit. It creates a 'floating' effect that eliminates hot spots and improves airflow. Ergonomically contoured, vertically adjustable, and with a micro-adjustable dial system for a great fit range that accommodates a beanie underneath.

Dual Regulator climate control

This ventilation system, lets you independently control the front and rear sections of the vents, allowing you to modulate your 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".

Nanosilver Performance Lining

The Smith Vantage MIPS Ski Helmet has a fully removable, machine washable lining, for perfectly cushioned comfort and a customisable fit. It has a Nanosilver treatment to keep your Ski Helmet clean and comfortable.

Smith Earpads

Provide a comfortable seal on even the stormiest days. Or remove them completely to maximise cooling. Chuck them in the machine on a cool wash when needed.

Goggle Clip

Just slide your Ski Goggle strap under the goggle clip and know that your Ski Goggles will still be there after sending it head-over-heels through powder.

Adjustable Chin Strap

Adjustable webbing straps allow you to tweak the fit of your Smith Vantage Ski Helmet. While the plush chin pad keeps you chafe-free all day long.

Well designed helmet, light weight but solid make with snug fit and kept me warm even with -12 degrees celsius. Gave 4 stars as I felt it was a bit tight on the ears after a few hours of skiing. Excellent service from Escape2 as always with speedy delivery. Thanks !

A very good fit, long sleeve keeping wrists warm. Comfortable against the skin, warm and wickers well. One of the best base layers I have, for hiking and trekking. Time will tell how durable and long lasting this garment will be.

I needed a North face bag quickly so I called to check that this was possible. The gentleman I spoke to couldnt have been more helpful and promised me that the bag would be sent out that day to make sure I got it in time. I would recommend this company 100%. Fantastic customer service.

Excellent fit with good movement. Hood not over the Helmet fit. Smart colour scheme for frequent use.
Good selection of external pockets. Internal pockets typical single phone and goggle pocket. Could have used further internal storage.
Right Chest pocket goes very narrow towards the bottom, not sure if this is by design or a manufacturing fault.

My order was picked up on the Monday, dispatched the same day and arrived on Tuesday. There was a lovely hand written message on the invoice thanking me for my order. My jacket was considerably cheaper from this company than purchasing in the nearby Cotswold Outdoor shop. I would definitely use this company again as the service was very quick. My jacket is a good fit and warm although not yet tested in very cold weather.

It is the smallest things in life that matter, and someone in thia company made my day.Altough my order was placed past 1300 hrs I received the product quite fast, despite my “remote location”.So somebody went the extra mile to make sure I receive in time.The handwritten “thank you” note on the side of the invoice was a nice touch.As for the product, well , like most Arc’ items it’s a great one.Thank you.

Bought this for my son for his birthday as he really likes them and he wanted it in red this time. He wears them for his fishing trips and at other times too especially when its cold weather. Considering how lightweight they are they are apparently very good at keeping the cold at bay.

Great jacket . Lightweight, fits well, like the way you can shape the hood and the inside pocket ( absent on many other jackets)

Used it on a snowboarding trip in the Italian Alps. With temperatures between 0 and 5 degrees C I only needed the outer layer. I fell countless times both on tracks and on fresh, soft snow and it always kept me dry. The material seems very resistant. The wrists velcro is high quality and doesn't come off by itself. Pockets are very practical, and the inner pocket that is attached to the snow skirt once saved my phone from falling down.
