Whether cruising down corduroy or exploring the backcountry, the Smith® Variance offers the most advanced technology, all with the guarantee of comfort provided by their premium helmet fit. By fusing Smith's tough bombshell ABS construction with flyweight In-Mold technology, their Hybrid Shell construction optimizes the favorable traits of each material in this revolutionary process.

MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is used to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. Smith helmets are created to absorb direct impacts very efficiently and when combined with MIPS, Smith helmets absorb oblique forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner.
