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.
This edition of the Forefront Helmet is equipped with the patented MIPS system to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. Where most helmets are tested for vertical impacts, studies have shown that the human brain is more sensitive to oblique impacts. MIPS technology mimics nature's own method of reducing forces transferred to the brain in the event of a crash. When subjected to an oblique impact, a membrane between the brain and skull allows the brain to slide along the inner surface of the skull, which ultimately reduces the forces transferred to the brain. MIPS helmets use a low friction layer between the shell and liner to mimic this process, which significantly reduces the forces transferred to the brain.
