You’ve probably seen this helmet on the hill. The Variant, Smith's best-selling and award-winning helmet, utilizes an adjustable Boa dial that expands and contracts to fit even the most block-headed bros on the slopes. Its nearly universal fit and lightweight design are two reasons this helmet is a popular choice for the safety conscious.
The Variant comes with a total of twenty-two vents that open and close in sections at your discretion. This is especially beneficial to my sideways slipping because I can close the down-wind vents while allowing the uphill side to breathe.
Sporting this sleek and stylish protective layer gives me an extra boost of confidence. This dome piece is compatible with Skullcandy audio systems. If that's not your method of musical influx, earbuds fit comfortably underneath the flappers.
A removable goggle-lock secures your optics to your head and prevents time-consuming searches through powder fields after inevitable yard sales. The X-Static Performance Lining is a big bonus for those that don't want to walk through the lodge looking like they just fingered a light socket. The vast array of colors available benefit the rest of us that just want to look good because, well, when you look good, you feel good.
Safe, steezy and sound. Mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery, and the Smith Variant has become the helmet to replicate for good reason.
