    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.

    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!

      Minimalist with seamless integration

        Heliski guide, have used the Maze for the last 6 years. It is a perfect ultra light weight, Low volume ( You don't feel like Kazoo with a huge head) minimalist design that integrates perfectly with any smith goggle. Easy to remove ear pads (I have to take them out to use the headset in the heli) just wear a buff or light hat under neath. I prefer the white as it stays cooler on the hot spring days. I hope they never change the design. It works perfect for my needs!

        Minimalist with seamless integration

        Saved my noggin from a nasty knock

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Decided to wear it on a spring skiing day when I would usually go without a helmet due to it being so warm. Caught an edge in a transition between slush and hardpack (shady spot) and fell backwards a lot farther than I normally am prepared for. I bonked right on the helmet and it really did save me from a concussion, I believe. Now I'm a committed believer!

        Great, Light Helmet.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This helmet is one of the lighter ones out there, with simple features without getting into any unneccessary gimmicks. Fits true to size and looks good. If anything, one small downside is that ventilation isnt the best so it can get warm for those spring skiing days.

        Excellente

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This helmet is extremely light and simple. There are little amenities to confuse the user or clutter the feel of the helmet. The ear pads come out easy and extra padding goes in easy. The helmet is stylish, true to size, and comfortable.

        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
