The Smith Vantage MIPS Helmet is designed for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels and provides them with excellent head protection. This helmet has numerous technical features including Zonal Koroyd™ coverage and MIPS® energy-absorbing impact protection. The Smith Vantage MIPS Helmet has multiple vents for airflow and is designed to integrate with Smith Goggles.

Key Features:

  • MIPS – This is a system designed to protect the brain by reducing rotational forces that occur when there is an angled impact on the head.
  • Koroyd – This material keeps the helmet lightweight and provides impact protection.
  • BOA Fit System – This is located on the back of the base of the helmet and gives the user the ability to customize the fit by turning the dial to the desired tightness to ensure a secure fit.

The Smith vantage helmet is a quality helmet that provides excellent protection. It is warm and comfortable, with awesome adjustability in ventilation. On super cold and windy days, the vents can block out the wind to keep you warm. The internal padding and the padding around the ears are quality and comfortable. The BOA adjustable back allows you to dial... Read more

I love this helmet, and it's saved me from potential concussions a couple of times. A ski of mine pre-released, sent me tumbling down onto some rocks on the side of the hill, and I came away unscathed aside from a few bruises. While the helmet was dented (and I purchased a new one), my skull was protected. The price point... Read more

I had this helmet for a few seasons. It is a tried and true helmet that will protect your dome. The MIPS technology protects your head from getting hit at different angles. With 21 vents, you will never get hot, and you can adjust your climate as needed. This helmet has protected me from concussions time and time again. My... Read more

Extremely knowledgeable about the equipment.
5 /5
I have been skiing 60+ years. Although most of my skiing in recent years has been Masters Alpine Racing, I have done many heli-ski trips to Alaska, BC, Iceland, Europe and Rockies. I like all sorts of skiing besides racing, such as moguls, powder and just on-piste cruising. Although I have lots of skis, I did not have an appropriate pair for off-piste skiing and crud. Luke's description of skis was on target for me. I feel confident that he understood my ability and needs and described exactly the skis that I needed for a trip to Portillo, Chile this August.

Leo is knowledgeable and perceptive with utmost integrity
5 /5
Leo really listened to my desires and concerns and approached my situation with a honest interest in finding a solution that will work for ME without bringing any preconceived or biased notion of what I should get based on corporate marketing goals. He was patient but adept at bringing the train back to the rails when I strayed from the track -- he was able drive us to a solution to the original problem that we were trying to solve. And this was despite me getting super amped at one point about a very wide-ski (and more expensive) solution that would have netted him a higher commission but that would not have worked for my initially stated goals. Leo also has an attention to detail, noting even the asides of a conversation to get the best possible solution. He also pays attention to the ostensibly less important issues -- but issues that in actuality are more important -- such as helmet fit and safety features. Finally, you can tell that Leo really enjoys what he does and believes in his mission, which makes working with him an absolute pleasure. He brings with him fun sense of humor and inspires confidence in you that you've come to the best possible solution. A+ Leo! Thanks a bunch.

Jay was incredibly helpful
5 /5
When I started looking for my first real snowboard setup, Jay was just the help I needed. I tell you we probably looked through all of curated's snowboard collection, twice over. He was super patient with me trying to decide on a board, even after changing the size I was after halway through. Jay was a ton of fun to talk with through the process and just really made things great with a lot of insight. Couldn't be happier with the help he gave me!

Patrick is the bee’s knees
5 /5
Super friendly and helpful, Patrick is a very relatable personality to have help do you shopping. I haven’t snowboarded in about 15 years but he listened to my experience and curated some fine pieces of gear for me to run with next season. He made sure to include a wide portfolio of items that I may be interested in, from the bargain pieces to the higher-end. The best part of my experience with Patrick was that he always tried to recommend something that was on sale that fit my profile of what I was shopping for. That was extremely appreciated— thanks again for everything Patrick! 🏂

Luke gave me the confidence to own my first set of skis! I have been hesitant to own, always preferring to bring my boots and rent my skis, but I have always wondered if I shouldn't take the plunge and try ownership. Luke helped me find a good fit for my needs, even though I had no idea what that was, and he even helped me find something at a really great price point! He is friendly and knowledgeable. Curated is a great service, especially for newbies like myself!

Matthew had helped me made this purchase very easy. He's so knowledgeable and listens to what you need. I was pushing back-and-forth and buying my first gear to snowboard, but then Matthew has always been an expert paired to me and he never stopped replying. Been in contact with him for a few months and today. I finally committed on buying my first gear. Been reaching out with Matthew. Maybe this is my fourth time and he always reply nicely And made me feel comfortable whenever I ask questions truly and highly recommended. If you need an expert to help you buy your snowboard gears.

I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.
