The Smith Forefront MIPS is once again leading the charge in contemporary bike helmet design. This all-mountain trail helmet uses Aerocore construction to create an extremely low-profile and ventilated bike helmet with elite impact resistance. It's all in the Koroyd technology – a unique thermal welding process which provides a structure that consistently absorbs impacts. In case of a serious crash, the core of this helmet uniformly crushes at the point of contact in a controlled manner, and an integrated skeletal structure and carbon fiber reinforcements protect your ever-important brain. Smith also integrated MIPS technology, a low-friction layer between the EPS liner and X-static head liner, so that the helmet can rotate relative to the head when subjected to an angled impact, greatly enhancing safety.

Twenty one vents bring in fresh air and exhaust hot air to keep your head cool. AirEvac 2 technology moves moist and warm air away from your goggles or sunglasses to keep them fog-free, and the X-Static performance lining wicks perspiration and is anti-microbial to keep your helmet from smelling funky. A Vaporfit adjustable fit system provides a snug and safe fit, while the integrated camera and light mount keeps the Smith Forefront Bike Helmet sleek. 

  • MIPS low-friction layer rotates to enhance safety during impact
  • Integrated skeletal and carbon fiber reinforcements for strength
  • 21 vents, including AirEvac vents keep your sunglass fog-free
  • Included goggle retention strap and "ultimate sunglass integration"
  • Integrated camera and light mount 
  • “Luckily I haven’t had a chance to test out the MIPS technology, but the fit is great and the ventilation is second to none, perfect for staying comfortable on all of your summer rides.”

  • “When Smith released their cycling helmets, including the Forefront MIPS Helmet, I was excited because I’ve developed confidence in their snow sport helmets over the years. When I actually got to ride in one of their bike helmets, I wasn’t expecting just how much I would love it. The honeycomb design makes it crazy light, and since every piece of the honeycomb is also a vent, it breathes unlike any helmet I’ve worn before. Light and airy is pretty much the ideal for hot trail rides, and this helmet delivers.”
