Show Description

Confidence inspiring protection for going big and fast. The Mainline MIPS is Smith's first full-face helmet, providing the comfort of a half shell with extra coverage. A combination of Koroyd and MIPS dispurse impacts effectively in the case of a crash and tons of vents keep you cool while climbing. Instead of a rotational dial, interchangeable pads of varied thicknesses allow you to get a proper fit, and can be washed after hot and sweaty rides.

  • MIPS technology reduces rotational forces to the head in the event of a fall, lessening the potential damage to the brain.
  • Koroyd and EPS provide consistent energy absorption to disperse impacts in the case of an accident.
  • AirEvac ventilation system pulls warm air from in front of your face to reduce fog build-up on glasses.
  • 21 vents provides breathability to keep your head cool.
  • Adjustable visor for shading and goggle storage.
  • Multiple sized pads can be swapped out for the perfect fit.
