The Smith Vantage is essentially the little brother of the Variant.  The style oriented, safety conscious, compatible with everything little brother.  It features a very similar design, but in a lighter version that is not as clumsy and bulky.

A favorite feature of the Smith helmets is their compatibility with the Smith I/O goggles (as well as other goggles from the Smith lineup).  Their regulator series produces a fog free skiing experience, no matter how big a temperature gradient there is between your hot head and the cold out doors.  Complement this airflow system with 21 vents and you’ll no doubt be staying cool.

The Smith Vantage is a super light weight helmet.  This makes it perfect for backcountry skiing (and with the number of vents, you’ll be able to hike without the inconvenience of removing your helmet), but the helmet also excels in bounds.  It’s style will turn heads in the lift line and its safety will keep your head safe as you tomahawk under the chair line.

As always, Smith offers up the accessory features you’ve come to expect with an option for music compatible ear pads, removable ear pads for warm days, and integrated BOA adjustment system (a new wire tightening system that insures a custom fit with a simple turn of the dial in the back).  For a do it all helmet, check out the Smith Vantage ski helmet!
