Whether cruising down corduroy or exploring the backcountry, the Variance offers the most advanced technology, all with the guarantee of comfort provided by our premium helmet fit. Built with our hybrid shell construction, this full performance helmet has received the highest compliment we could hope for – competitor imitation. 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.



Fit + Adjustment
Adjustable Smith x Boa fit system - The Smith x BOA® fit system is a custom developed, Smith exclusive piece. Building on the proven fit of our ergonomic head form, it offers an intuitive dial system for on-the-fly, single-handed micro-adjustment. This three-quarter haloed design offers key features of self-centering and vertical adjustability, allowing the user to achieve a perfectly customized fit.
Venting
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.

Materials
Hybrid shell construction - Smith's Hybrid Shell construction combines separate lightweight and durable shells to create an entirely new helmet category. By fusing our tough bombshell ABS construction with flyweight In-Mold technology, our Hybrid Shell construction optimizes the favorable traits of each material in this revolutionary process. The result is a modern design that provides a lightweight, low profiles, perfectly fitting helmet. Hybrid Shell construction also creates a clean, smooth top surface by enabling the low profiles Regulator to function with reduced mass and volume.
