The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

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 in for the perfect fit. Paired with Smith goggles, I know I’m getting seamless fit and integration with the two. No gaper gaps here! The helmet has good breathability as well, so on warmer days or when I find myself working hard on the mountain, I’m never uncomfortable because of the heat. The protection gives me confidence on the mountain that my noggin will be protected no matter the unexpected edge catch at speed or other riders that may not be paying attention on the mountain. Smith is a quality brand, producing quality helmets and they also have a great warranty process if anything were to fail on the helmet.

Ideal for
  • Protection
  • Ventilation

  • Sometimes people with round vs. oval heads may find this helmet uncomfortable

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.

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

People love Curated Experts

Helpful to talk to an expert when making a big purchase
5 /5
I found Curated after doing some of my own research on snowboarding gear. I'd been looking at purchasing my own board for a while, but having Schuyler to talk to in real time while shopping was super helpful and made the process a lot less stressful. Schuyler is knowledgable and answered all my questions almost immediately after I messaged him. Love the way Curated works, the fact that they price match while still providing the help, and would definitely recommend it and Schuyler. Excited about my new gear!

When I found the website, I was really lost on buying a snowboard. Dustin helped and made it easy. I also learned about the types of snowboards from Dustin. Dustin was quick to respond to text when texted. Dustin really knew anything you asked him. He was a great help to me. I am and will be recommending Dustin to family members and friends.

I’ve been skiing for several years, but have never owned my own gear because I was overwhelmed by the amount of options. Kyle was very helpful though and asked questions to help dial in one or two recommendations that I could then pick from. He also further explained each recommendation in a video and was attentive to my questions. All in all a great experience, highly recommend!

5 /5
I'm new to snowboarding and was not sure where to start when it came to buying new gear. Ryan was not only knowledgeable but also very mindful of choosing items within my specified price range while keeping each pick very quality. Additionally, he included a description of each product he picked for me, which was very helpful in deciding what to purchase since I'm not familiar with all the different brands and materials. This made such a confusing and time-consuming process much easier. He was also very communicative and kept me updated throughout every step of the curation process... literally above and beyond! Such a chill and great person all around. Thanks again Ryan :)
