As one of the lightest women's-specific certified snow helmets in the world, the Allure provides a clean, timeless shape of the shell that hides the Smith-pioneerd AirEvac technology for superior goggle integration. This low profile helmet delivers enlightend style and a plush, fleeced tricot lining, providing protection you need in a fixed-ventilation helmet.
MIPS technology (Multi-directional impact protection system):
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
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.
Lightweight In-Mold Construction – The performance standard for many years, In-Mold construction creates a PC shell helmet with and EPS liner to maximize weight reduction. Lightweight, comfortable and offering value for every ounce, In-Mold construction is the flyweight winner.
AirEvac2 ventilation - At Smith, we design helmets and goggles to work together as a fully integrated system. For the helmet line, the most important factor in integration is the AirEvac ventilation system. This is the bridge that allows goggles and helmets to function as one system, venting warm moist air away from the goggles, through the helmet climate control system and ultimately away from the head.
Fit + Adjustment
Airflow Climate Control – Strategically placed vents give you easy climate control in all conditions. Vent placement maximizes airflow and heat exhaustion in warm temperatures while minimizing undesired cold air drafts.
Self-Adjusting Lifestyle Fit System – Built around the forgiving properties of elastic, the self-adjusting Lifestyle Fit System is designed to flex around the wearer's head, providing a dynamic fit that will move as you do. Additional lateral adjustability on the fit system arms allows it to accommodate a wide range of head sizes. With the Lifestyle Fit System, you'll experience comfort and mobility from a fit system you'll never have to think about.
