Whether cruising down corduroy or exploring the backcountry, the Variance offers the most advanced technology, all with the guarantee of comfort provided by Smith's® premium helmet fit. Built with hybrid shell construction, this full performance helmet has received the highest compliment we could hope for - competitor imitation.

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.
