Smith Pointe Mips Helmet Womens
The women's specific Pointe MIPS improves durability and multi-impact protection while looking good. The proprietary Bombshell PLUS construction and multi-Impact EPP liner integrate with goggles and beanies for a secure and comfortable fit from first chair to last call. This particular model has MIPS impact technology built in as well which protects your brain even more upon impact. The Pointe has plenty of ventilation to keep you from overheating and fogging your goggles as well. This helmet is a great choice for ladies looking for a low profile design without too many bells and whistles.
Smith LIFETIMEWarranty - Yes, you read correctly. Smith stands by their product and will warranty any manufacturers defects for the lifespan of the product. Pretty sweet deal, especially for goggles and helmets.
Air Evac2 Ventilation/Goggle Integration - At Smith, they design helmets and goggles to work together as a fully integrated system. For the helmet line, the most important factor in integration is the AirEvac ventilation system. This is the bridge that allows goggles and helmets to function as one system, venting warm moist air away from the goggles, through the helmet climate control system and ultimately away from the head.
MIPS Helmet Technology - MIPS - Multi-Directional Impact Protection System MIPS is a step forward in helmet design. There are three main components to a MIPS-equipped helmet: the interior foam liner, the Low Friction Liner and an elastomeric attachment system between them. In an angled impact, the elastomeric attachment system stretches to allow the foam liner to rotate independently around your head. The goal of this technology is to further reduce rotational forces.
Smith Bombshell Construction - Bombshell helmets use an injection molded ABS shell to withstand high impacts and offer unparalleled durability, dent and ding resistance.
X-Static Performance Lining - A silver coated textile fiber that enhances products with permanent and natural anti-odor, anti-static and thermo-dynamic properties.
Snapfit SL Ear Pads - Superlight (SL) ear pads are just as warm and quick to snap in or out. Found in top end Smith models.
Safety Standards - ASTM F-2040-00: Meets the standard specifications of protective headgear for snowsports
In Form Fit System - A dial at the lower back of the helmet can be turned tighter or looser to get a custom fit. This also improves the safety of the helmet, as a better fit means the helmet is less likely to slide around during a crash.
CPSC Safety Standard - CPSC is the newest American safety standard for bicycling and skating, this helmet meets this new standard.
CE EN 1077 - This is a European standard that has performed testing on these helmets to ensure they function as designed, and that they exceed the minimum standards for snow sports. In other words, they dropped heavy objects on the helmets, and they didn't break.
Padded Chin Strap - Thin padding under the chin prevents chafing and allows for proper fit of the helmet.
Goggle clip - Two lateral guides that keep the goggles in place, and doesn't interfere with the goggle adjustment clips.
