Description

Light makes right.

The Smith Maze Helmet doesn't have a bunch of thingamajigs, jibjabs, and doodads sticking out all over—it's not complicated, but it is an ultralight, super clean, and minimalist brain bucket designed to protect your head so you can think about the next big booter, deep line, or double-kink that you're lining up. At just 12oz, it's the lightest fully certified snow helmet on the market, but still comes with key features like a self-adjusting Lifestyle Fit System, Airflow Climate Control Vents, and removable, audio-compatible Snapfit SL2 earpads. Smith's AirEvac 2 goggle-compatible ventilation system keeps your eyewear from fogging, and the PC plastic shell and EPS foam liner protect your medulla oblongata from getting rattled.

  • Lightweight in-mold construction
  • PC plastic shell with an EPS foam liner
  • Self-adjusting Lifestyle Fit System
  • Airflow Climate Control vents
  • AirEvac 2 goggle-compatible ventilation
  • Snapfit SL2 earpads compatible with Skullcandy audio systems
  • Removable goggle lock

Here's what others have to say...

I just got some of the Smith IO/X Goggles...I was wondering how the fit/ventilation is with this helmet? I do quite a bit of back country hiking/skiing and have had issues in the past with my goggles fogging up? (not the Smith's those are brand new never used) The thing that concerns me most about this helmet is the lack of top ventilation. I tend to overheat quickly even on the coldest days.

Responded on

I LOVE my maze helmets - super lightweight, integrate perfectly with my IOX goggles and they just fit better than any other helmet I've tried. They really don't have a whole lot of vents but I have never had a problem with overheating - I take mine off when hiking or if if its just that hot out. I also bring sunglasses for sunny, warm hikes. On super cold days, I wear a buff headband underneath. I'll post a pic of the back vents! You can see one of the front vents in the side view pictures above - just little slits on each side of the front of the helmet. Hopefully that helps! Hit me up if you have any questions! lfeasler@backcountry.com

light weight and stylish

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm really happy with this helmet. I can barley tell when I am wearing it because it is so light which also makes it nice for packing on the ascent. It fits my head very comfortably and has no "gaper gap" with my goggles. very clean and low profile, perfect for all winter backcountry pursuits!

Less is more

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Lightweight helmet that fits great and has a low profile so you don't feel like your head has doubled in size when you're wearing it. Seamless fit with Smith goggles and has lots of air flow so it doesn't fog you up. Great helmet!

Best Helmet out there

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used it for the past three seasons. It is the lightest helmet I've ever used. Very durable. A definite must if you plan to ride a lot, especially if your gonna ride park.

The lightest helmet. Period.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you're like me, you want the protection of a helmet, but you want to forget its there. This thing feels like you forgot it at home, and looks great. Minimalist helmet, with well thought-out ventilation that keeps the air inside your goggles circulating, and so low-profile that you won't ever want to wear a different one.

Light is Right

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've never really considered myself a weight weenie in skiing, and I don't have a problem riding heavier gear if it meets my needs. I have a big dome and for a while I rode POC and Bern helmets, all the while hearing from ski buddies who insisted that the Maze was their new favorite helmet. Last year I made the switch and I couldn't be happier.

While I was initially skeptical about how good the fit and function of helmet could be with its crazy low weight and relatively cheap price point, I'm happy to say that Smith has made me a believer. I never realized how much more comfortable I would be due simply to riding a lighter weight helmet. And despite feeling like there is next to nothing on your head while skiing, the Maze did a great job of using it's lifestyle fit system to stay securely in place no matter how fast I was going or what I was jumping off of. It also works great wearing my Vice goggles underneath the helmet, something that has been an issue for me in the past with other helmet brands.

Overall, a comfortable lightweight helmet that can be worn easily in a variety of configurations. I rode it last season, and will be wearing it again this year.

The best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this helmet because of how light weight it is and just overall fantastic. light, doesn't bother you, unique and easily the most used helmet on the market. every kid you see strolling through the terrain park or backcountry, usually most people are wearing one. there is a reason behind that too. safe, confortable, and breathable helmet.

Best Helmet I've Ever Used Hands Down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you are looking for a super comfortable, safe and light helmet for everything from racing to triple backflips this is for you. I have used this helmet for the past 3 years now and I, as well as most of my friends, swear by it. I've used other helmets like the bern EPS foam helmet and other giro helmets and just have not been satisfied. Nothing compares to the lightness and style of the maze. If you are in the market for a new helmet, look no further! The MAZE is what you want.

Light as a Beanie, but with a Hardshell

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you've ever experienced the bobble-head effect from a helmet before, you understand the annoyance of top-heaviness. The Maze dispels all of those worries. I like this helmet because it's light and does it's job. Because of its weight, it's a no-brainer to bring it backcountry touring. It interfaces well with the Smith I/O goggle. I do not usually wear a beanie under my helmet as I've found this helmet to be warm enough for my taste, though if you're easily chilled you might want to add some insulation.

Protect the dome and still have style.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This Helmet is light enough that I don't notice it when riding around. It also vents with the smith goggles extremely well and doesn't look like a bobble head . It's nice to be comfortable and safe !

Protect the dome and still have style.

Small Heads Beware!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First off let me say... this helmet is so comfortable.

I prefer to go commando and not do the beanie-under-the-helmet technique- but beware if you are a female and have a small head you may be better to go with the Allure.

Lightweight, Air flow, Compatibility

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is an amazing helmet and i use it every time i go snowboarding. It has protected my noggin several times from hard impact and has kept me healthy. i like the sleek look and it fits my head very well. Its super comfortable and when it paired with any smith goggle it doesn't even feel like your wearing head gear. Its super lightweight and most times i forget i'm even wearing a helmet. Along with being lightweight it is sleek and stylish and doesn't make my head look huge like some other helmets do. Even if you wear your goggles under your helmet or on the outside of your helmet you get a comfortable feeling and when integrated with smith goggles you get a feel like no other helmet would allow. I never have goggles fog due to the airflow of the helmet and I enjoy wearing every day. Worth every penny to keep your head safe and concussion free.

Best Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this helmet every time I go skiing and it has had its beating but its condition still hasn't changed. As a competitive skier, it has protected me really well and wouldn't switch to a different helmet for anything. Really nice look to it, and fits really nicely with Smith Goggles. Would recommend it to anyone who wants a rockin' helmet.

A Maze Ing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This helmet is super light and fits great. The liner is comfy, and adjustable. There are no extra do-dads, just simple and reliable.

No vents, but doesn't seem to overheat.

Goggles, especially Smiths, are compatible. No gaper gaps here!
