Why We Like The Express MIPS Helmet

Riding and commuting around the city calls for the Smith Express MIPS Helmet for all our quick trip needs. This safety-focused helmet is what we're wearing from the grocery store to the gym and has features to match. The pop-in rear light helps us be easily spotted while out and about, and the MIPS system reduces rotational forces in the event of a crash.

  • MIPS reduces rotational forces caused by angled impact to head
  • Integrated rear pop-in light provides additional safety features

  • Rear dial for easy fit customization

Les couleurs sont belles et éclatantes. Le style est différent des autres et j’aime ça. La lumière derrière le casque est un plus pour moi. J’adore.

I bought this helmet after my brother bought one as well. We both have a large oval heads and Smith helmets fit nicely. Tried at least 5 other companies' helmets, but Smith beat them all for fit, comfort and looks. Plus, they are not overloaded with Vent holes. The light and visor are a nice bonus as well.

Love the color and fit, light fell out

The helmet fits well and I love the bright color yellow. I liked the light, but alas it fell out after about a week of owning the helmet. I don't think I'll buy a replacement light because there is not latch or anything to keep it from falling out.

Hardware is lacking

Want to love this helmet but several features are unreliable. I use it to commute several days a week and every time I use it, I have to reattach the Velcro that holds the visor on. Some padding has fallen off, leaving exposed Velcro that ruins hats and hairdos. The light has fallen out so many times I’ve lost it. Most annoying is the chin strap. The tension on the adjustment is not sufficient, so I have to tighten it before each use. Overall could have been a great helmet but the hardware is seriously lacking.

Great Helmet!

I just received this helmet this morning and went out for a test ride soon after. Very pleased with this helmet! It has everything I want in a helmet. Integral rear light (I usually have to add my own) and a great removable cloth (as in cap-style) visor. I don't use a visor in the summer but when the sun is lower in the sky it really comes in handy! I use a light on all my helmets all the time. So I'll see if this helmet is 'venty' enough for summer rides. Otherwise 3 seasons is also great. Love this helmet!

Bon achat

Bon achat. J'ai acheté pour le modèle pour la qualité du produit mais aussi pour la lumière arrière qui me procure un sentiment de sécurité. Seul petit bémol avec mon achat, le prix du shipping, j'ai trouvé un peu cher ! Mais sinon, très contente de mon achat !

Poorly designed visor

Cool helmet. I bought it for the visor as I like a visor for both sun and rain protection. However, the design and size of this visor is nearly worthless.

Great product!

Express MIPS is very well made. Easy adjustment to make snug, depending upon weather hood/hat worn underneath. Really like the bright red light on back and how it easily turns on/off. Also like that it came in turquoise color which compliments my bike:)

Most uncomfortable strap and strap design

Smith shipped this very fast - so customer-facing side is great. But this helmet has the most uncomfortable strap I've ever worn on a helmet. It is impossible to center the helmet without either covering your ears from the front, or having the strap pressure the back of your ears. Interestingly no pictures of this helmet on a person - but I should have checked their Instagram video before because it's obvious there. Disappointed to experience this after all the positive reviews.
