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.
In-Mold Construction:A one time industry standard, now In-Mold construction is viewed as the highest quality lightweight construction style. Helmets made with this method will be the lightest on the market.
Aerocore Construction:The top vents are lined with "green" Koroyd Material that allows for a dramatic increase of air entered and exiting the helmet without compromising safety or performance. This material also absorbs more energy upon impact when tested to international standards.
Included Knit Liner:This model of Bern Helmet comes standard with a warm knit liner.
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.
Adjustable Boa Fit System:A Boa knob at the back of the helmet allows the user to adjust the size to their exact specifications.
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.
Fidlock Buckle Closure:The pinch-free, one-handed Fidlock Magnectic Snap helmet buckle combines the advantages of two fastening concepts in a completely new way. Strong magnets make it easy to open and close while a secure snap functionality ensures a continuously high locking force.
Goggle clip:Two lateral guides that keep the goggles in place, and doesn't interfere with the goggle adjustment clips.
Audio System Ready:The earpads of this helmet have zippers that allow the user to input their audio listening device of choice. Skullcandy makes some earpad specific speakers that are very nice, but really any earbuds will fit in there and pump your jamz.
I was worried about the other review on it and thought the helmet would be bad, but it is a great helmet and has MIPS! I checked REI, and they have the helmet for $200 right now, so the MSRP matches.
This helmet is only $118 normally at REI.
