The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

I bought the Smith Code helmet last year and have absolutely loved it. It’s light and not as bulky as other helmets, so it fits well under hoods. I took all the padding out and really like how simple it looks. That being said, this helmet is really really simple. Size adjustments are limited, and the vents don’t close. The vents are on the back, though, so no rain or water comes in through the top. The front vents keep the helmet breathable and are made in a way that your brain doesn’t freeze when cold air blows in. This helmet is also equipped with MIPS and provides all the safety you need, skipping the frills.

Ideal for
  • More like a skateboard style helmet
  • Removable earmuffs and padding
  • Equipped with MIPS protection
Not ideal for
  • Lacks a BOA for adjustment
  • Not as many vents as other Smith helmets
  • Not super warm

The Smith Code is a low-profile, stylish helmet constructed with the latest safety features for top-tier performance.

Key Features:

  • Multi-Directional Impact Protection System – MIPS allows the frame of the helmet to move without applying torque to the head, minimizing the risk of neck injuries.
  • BOA 360 Fit – The BOA adjustment system reduces pressure points.
  • AirEvac Ventilation – Warm air is moved away from goggles to prevent fogging.
  • Aerocore – Aerocore construction brings in cool air and removes warm air to keep your head from overheating and your goggles clean.

The fit is very comfortable.

The fit is very comfortable. The integration with SMITH goggles is perfect and adds to the comfortable fit. As for protection, well I haven’t tested it but trust SMITH with my safety on snow, single track and road!

Really great for brand-new riders
5 /5
I'm a brand-new rider, only boarded twice. Always rented my gear. He took me from "never really looked into purchasing my own gear" to riding season-ready in a night. He was able to explain all his recommendations and made me feel good about using this service. Tailored everything to what I was looking for and really knows how to connect with newcomers to the sport. You can tell he's got a lot of experience boarding and I could tell he really enjoyed helping a new rider.

Kelly was prompt in responding, knowledgeable and guided me patiently keeping my skill level in mind. Even though I was ambitious and wanted a board beyond my skill level, she patiently explained why some other boards were better suited for what I was looking to get out of my riding
5 /5
Shopping online for snowboarding gear is daunting. The returns are not easy and you are worried you are not sizing the board properly or overlooking key features of the board. For a beginner like me, having a gear expert to talk to brought a lot of comfort and better trust in my choice of board. With the price match guarantee, you know you are getting the best deal online.

5 /5
Mike was great and very responsive. within minutes he was able to provide me with multiple options for boards, bindings and boots. He took time to learn about my skill level and what I am looking for. He asked for a budget and provided things under budget, in range and slightly over budget so I could see the differences between each item and value they add. He also was able to put together videos explaining each item and the pros and cons for each. On top of this I found a retailer selling one of the boot recommendations on sale and within 5 mins Mike was able to price match it in my size and I got them for $100 less than initially listed.

5 /5
He found a couple of boards that I really liked, ones I wouldn't have think of to look up. He took the time to tell me what each board was like and whether it would fit what I was looking for. We took a little more time to land on something that also had colors and designs that I wanted, because I am very picky and want to look stylizish. I'd say the effort was collaborative, because I was also actively searching on my own, but I liked that I was able to send him some of my findings, and he would tell me what he thought of those boards, then he would adjust my curations based on what I showed him. This was super helpful on my decision making, and eventually he suggested the Jones twin sister board to me and it's like, once you know, you know. Never purchased from curated before so I am a little nervous about shipping and quality control, and I also don't see reviews once orders were received, so hoping things all work out!

Taylor was very nice and helped out with money saving options, especially with me being new to the sport, that were helpful to figure out what I should get. She knows to appeal to who she’s helping as far as color ways for male or female while still giving a cheaper or more favorable option.

I've read good & bad reviews about the curated experts. Zach was not one of the bad! Very nice, very patient , very knowledgeable & we both have similar taste in equipment. I was having trouble making a decision on board & size, but after speaking with Zach it seemed like a no-brainer. Appreciate the support!
