Smith Forefront Helmet

This new all-mountain helmet by Smith is truly on the Forefront of bicycle helmet technology. Through use of Smith’s AEROCORE construction the Forefront helmet implements their patented Koroyd material which offers better impact absorption and ventilation, as well as being significantly lighter weight then your traditional ESP helmet. Koroyd are honeycomb-like structures comprised of thousands of co-polymer tubes that have been thermally welded together, forming a lightweight impact material that also breathes better than EPS or foam. Smith’s Vaporfit retention system ensures a comfortable fit; once the height on each of the straps are dialed in to fit your head properly, simply use the rotating dial at the back of the helmet to micro-adjust the fit to get it just right. The antimicrobial X-Static performance lining eliminates static and odors, as well as helps regulate temperatures, keeping you fresher than daisies and cooler than cucumbers.

        Comments about Smith Optics Smith Forefront Helmet:

        I took a slow fall & landed full force on the helment. I felt like my head was trying to be pushed thru a strainer. The Hex shaped inner support of the helmet doesn't distribute the load, so you have the skinny mesh thickness applying all the force like a knife edge. What a terrible design

        Comments about Smith Optics Smith Forefront Helmet:

        I bought this helmet just because of the ventilation technology but to tell you the truth I went back to my Fox Flux since the forefront it is too hot during summer I really don't feel air flowing at all. and I sweat twice as much.

        I like it but I think I will be using it during winter.

          This fits me great and feels very comfortable. It breathes well without me having to worry about scooping a horsefly into one of the vents, thanks to the innovative koroyd protection. Also the thoughtfulness to include little channels to hold your sunglasses is AWESOME. The looks are polarizing to some, but I like it because it's really different.
