Because stoke factor is gender-blind, we brought the Vantage Women's into the mix. Using Aerocore™ construction that features Koroyd®, it simultaneously maximizes full coverage protection and increased airflow. For the most custom fit, the Vantage Women's offers the women's specific X-Static lining, as well as the BOA® FS360 fit system, with a 360° halo design. Combine all this with the Smith pioneered AirEvac technology for goggle integration, and the Vangate Women's delivers the perfect blend of technology and style.
MIPS Technology: 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 eff iciently 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: 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.
STRAIN LEVELS: Simulated deformation of the brain from angled impact when the user is wearing a helmet with and without MIPS.
