    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.

    The Only Helmet I Use

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Absolutely love this helmet. Had one for two years that was starting to get beat up and went ahead and ordered the same one. Why change a good thing? Super low profile and light, sits on top of your head and looks stylish with any goggles. I pair it with the I/O 7s but this helmet will kill it with any set up.

    Great Helmet!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I didn't try on this helmet before I got it so I was nervous getting it but I absolutely love it! I got the size medium and found out you can make it a little bit smaller so it is now the perfect fit! Since I didn't try it on I knew this helmet would fit my head compared to another brand, this brand has ovalish shaped helmets and some other brands have more rounded helmets, so this fit perfectly!
    It is really simple and still keeps your head warm or lets some air in on warmer days. And it is also an amazing price!

    Simple and amazing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This helmet fits great, keeps my head warm, and is barely noticeable. I was a little worried about fit, being that it doesn't have a knob for adjustments, but I am constantly surprised how I don't even feel it on my head. If you're looking for a helmet at a lower price point look no further than this.

    Great Product Great Price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I recently purchased this helmet for the best ski season in Utah in recent years. I love this helmet! Super lightweight with plenty of ventilation. I wore it while night skiing in low temps and my head stayed warm without wearing a hat under it.

    I would recommend using this helmet with Smith goggles. They are made to work together and provide the best protection and comfort.

    I would recommend this helmet to anyone!

    Low Profile & Lightweight!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After being hassled by friends and family for a long time for not wearing a helmet while skiing in and out of bounds, my boyfriend and I finally caved in and decided to go for helmets. We had heard about the Smith Maze from other people, how much they loved theirs and how lightweight and low profile the fit is. My boyfriend was probably more reluctant about a helmet than I was, so I made sure we tried on a dozen or so before making a decision. Luckily we found the Smith Maze in a store and had the chance to try it on and compare with other models from Smith, as well as models from other companies. Hands down, easiest decision, Smith Maze was the best choice for us.

    I've used it several times now and I usually forget that I've got it on. I've even reached up to scratch my head a few times only to fail because my helmet was in the way. Kind of silly, but that's how lightweight and comfortable it is.

    Low Profile & Lightweight!

    Excellent helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got this helmet before a recent ski trip and it's really excellent. It's lightweight, has comfortable (I mean really soft) padding, and is warm (but breathable). I really would have forgotten I had it on, had it not saved my skull from a couple of bumps during the trip. Highly recommend it.

    Protect yo neck

      Easily the best bang for your buck available today. At $110 the Maze undercuts most competitors and has the added benefit of being extremely lightweight (don’t think you forfeit structural quality at the expense of lightweight materials, mine has seen more than a few impacts. Furthermore, I have four pairs of goggles, all of which are entirely compatible. I do think the Maze runs slightly small if you leave all of the padding in.

      Light and Easy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      No frills. This helmet gets the job done. Definitely recommend measuring your head since the sizing is pretty spot on. As well, the adjustable fit system is nice to have for a more snug fit. The popping noise made me think I broke it at first but all is well in the world of Smith.

      Keeps my head together

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I really like this helmet, it's simple and good looking. Yes, I have hit my head with this helmet and it absolutely worked for me. I personally wear it over my beanie/goggles but you can go either way. I have a lg and it fits my 7 1/2 head great. Overall great product and I will be buying another next year.

      Quality Brain Bucket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I purchased this helmet after Bill Porreca one of the Backcountry.com gear heads recommended it. It lasted one season of hard skiing with a mix of on and off piste skiing. Great breathablility for the side-country and spring skiing but plenty warm for freezing temperatures. I enjoy the fit, it doesn't sit too high on my head. I purchased a large and it sits snug, but no pressure point that getting annoying through the day. Overall great helmet!

      Hello, is this helmet compatible with oakley airbrake goggles? the goggles are kinda bulky and it doesn't look like it will fit this helmet

      The short answer is that yes the Maze Helmet is compatible with the Oakley Airbrakes. Smith Helmets integrate well with Oakley goggles in general from my experience and other customers’ feedback. That being said there is a small chance the set-up will not be comfortable for some people, especially if you have a higher bridge on your nose, since the Maze could create pressure on your nose when they push the goggles down. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

      Does MIPS take up any room in helmets? I have a very large head and normally have to grind my helmet for a custom fit just to get it on. Either way, I tried a Maze XL helmet on that didn't have MIPS. If I order a Maze with MIPS will it fit exactly the same as one without?
      Thanks

      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?
      TIA

      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: http://www.mipshelmet.com/#what-is-mips. 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
