  • DurabilityDented after a fall, but still functional.
  • AdjustabilityBOA adjustment system, but only one point of adjustability.


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

So Helpful!
5 /5
I've been out of the ski market for so long that I had no idea there were so many subtle, but very distinct differences in equipment. Thomas almost instantly responded any time I had a question or wanted a clarification. Decision paralysis or confusion would surely have taken over if not for Thomas's help. Thank you!

Austin was amazing as always
5 /5
It's my 2nd time working with Austin - originally he had picked a snowboard out for my son that has worked out super well. Now he helped me pick out a new board for myself after using the same second hand ill-fitted one I had for 10 years. Austin was super responsive throughout the whole process, super enthusiastic, and had a lot of knowledge to share with regards to his suggestions. I could tell that all of his picks for me were well thought out and has made me super excited about trying out the Solomon Assassin I ended up purchasing.

Mariah is amazing!
5 /5
Coming into this, I do not have a lot of knowledge on skiing equipment and neither do my family or friends. Mariah helped me by being super knowledgeable, answering all of my questions, and addressing all of my concerns. She is very quick with her responses and will provide you with an array of options that are tailored to your preferences. I appreciate that she took time to discuss the details with me. I would highly recommend her services to my family, friends, and anyone looking to buy ski equipment! She is the best! :)

Jed was awesome! He's not only super nice and kind but also incredibly responsive. Whenever I have a question or need help, he's there with his wealth of knowledge. It's like having a reliable friend who's always got your back. Jed is the real deal when it comes to being helpful and knowledgeable. Just bought my very first snowboarding gear and I couldn't ask for a better person to help me with this process. Thank you, Jed.

I was torn between a few boards. Michelle was able to help me out and find the perfect board for me. She was very patient and kind. She took her time to look at what would fit my needs and how I would be able to progress. I’m so thankful I got to talk with her and pick out an awesome board!

Riley provided expert input on my purchase. I am always very busy so online shopping is easiest, however, it can be tough when I'm a little out of my wheelhouse and need insight on what is best to lower the likelihood of a return. I have not bought skis in many years and am just getting back onto it, so it was helpful to have support making choices. They also made a couple add-on and changes based on my questions and needs. Much appreciated!
