The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Smith Mission MIPS Helmet is excellent for anyone looking for a cost-effective but still fully-featured helmet. The MIPS technology adds peace of mind when charging groomers, and the removable earpads and liner mean you can strip it down for warm backcountry days. There is a ventilation system featuring vents all over the helmet with open, closed, and partially open positions to fine-tune breathability on the fly. This has been an awesome feature throughout the season, from winter storms to spring skiing. After a few seasons of regular use, there are no obvious signs of wear on the helmet. I also appreciate the variety of colors available to match whatever kit you are building and how well they integrate with my Smith IO Mag goggles.

Ideal for
  • Durable shell and fit system
  • Removable, audio-compatible ear pads
  • Capable in the resort but light enough for the backcountry
Not ideal for
  • Oval shape may not fit everyone

I recently took the Smith Mission MIPS Helmet out for a spin on the slopes, and it genuinely impressed me. The MIPS technology, which is all about reducing the shock from rotational impacts, gave me a real sense of security, especially when tackling the more challenging trails. It’s reassuring to have that level of protection without feeling like you're wearing... Read more

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!
