Light and mighty.

The Smith Maze Helmet doesn't have a bunch of thingamajigs, jibjabs, and doodads, but it is a light, clean, and bombproof brain bucket that's 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 it 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 prevents your goggles from fogging, and the PC plastic shell and EPS foam liner protect your medulla oblongata from getting rattled after a big hit.

  • Lightweight in-mold construction
  • EPS foam
  • AirEvac 2 ventilation (nine vents)
  • Airflow climate control
  • Self-adjusting lifestyle fit system
  • Snapfit SL2 ear pads
  • Skullcandy audio system compatible (sold separately)
  • Removable goggle lock

Light and sturdy!

This helmet keeps my brain bucket safe while sliding down the slopes in some serious style. Wouldn't have it any other way!

Light and sturdy!

Does anyone know what Smith means when they say Asian Fit? Also is MIPS just more marketing lingo or is there something radically different in the helmet's construction to differentiate it from this version of Maze?

Best Answer

I don't know about Asian fit, but I can answer for MIPS. MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) is a new helmet technology that is starting to gain traction in the industry, and basically it helps reduce rotational impact on your brain due to an angled hit to your dome. I can't say exactly how the technology works, but I know that a lot of big companies are starting to include MIPS versions of their helmets. Something tells me it may become an industry standard in a few years, especially as more research into brain injuries comes out. Heres the MIPS website if you want to read more: There's a lot of question about what kinds of helmets really do protect and what not. With my experience, as long as you're wearing some kind of skid lid, you're helping your brain out. Hope this helps

Thanks so much Maxwell. Your answer was very helpful.


Great Bang for your Buck

    I went w/ the Black. It's light. It's simple looking, nothing flashy. I've got a Smith MTB helmet and I love it. I haven't tested it out yet (really hoping I never have to, if ya no what I mean), but, I'm sure it will put a check in the box.


    Great Helmet, Great Price!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This helmet is awesome. Best feature: "Lightest Fully Certified Snow Helmet on the Market".
    Simple, fits great and great price!


    Initial impressions.....Brilliant!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I used the Maze for the first time recently in Australia. I was a bit apprehensive regarding size. I went for the small as I measure 56cm. I was a little worried initially, as out of the box it was a bit tight, but once I had it on and wore it for an hour on the slopes, I forgot it was there. A brilliant helmet, super lightweight and really warm. Skied two days, one cold, one warmer and it was great in both. No issues with cold ears and no overheating. On top of that, it was excellent with the Smith I/O goggles. All in all a super buy. Looking forward to putting it through the wringer!


    lightweight and warm

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I have an older model of this helmet but I Love my maze! it is so light you hardly realize you have it on. not only is it warm but the air evac with my smith IOX I have to literally breath directly into my goggle to get any condensation and even then its gone in a few seconds. ill be getting a new model soon as mine has a few to many dings and bumps on it. my biggest problem is go neon Green or Orange!
