Your helmet is as essential to shredding as your ski poles or your snowboard boots, so it shouldn't feel like a burden when you're wearing one. The Smith Women's Vantage Helmet offers lightweight and stylish protection with features designed to enhance comfort and provide superior safety on the slopes. This season, Smith engineered the Vantage with Aerocore construction, which combines lightweight EPS construction with revolutionary Koroyd material. This unique material absorbs more impact than traditional foams while simultaneously improving breathability and reducing weight and bulk. The result is greater comfort, a lighter feel, and improved protection. AirEvac 2 ventilation features 21 vents that can be fully opened on warm spring days, partially closed when temps drop, or completely shut in the middle of a snowstorm. The Nanosilver lining has a women-specific fit and anti-odor features that keep the helmet from getting too funky. The Snapfit SL2 Ear Pads provide a warm and cozy seal around your ears on colder days, and they're removable for comfort of warm spring days. Plus, they're compatible with Skullcandy audio systems (sold separately) so you can crank up the tunes to keep you stoked while you shred.
