Why We Like The Mission MIPS Helmet

We take on those big objectives with the Smith Mission MIPS Helmet. Built with the MIPS impact system, this helmet redirects energy during impact to reduce rotational forces and add protection in the case of a crash.

The EPS foam interior and polycarbonate shell exterior work together to help protect and fend off low hanging branches or hard packed snow. Adjustable ventilation allows for airflow to cool off the interior of the helmet, but can also be closed off during especially cold days when that extra warmth is wanted. If the day does get too warm, the ear pads can be removed in order to dump extra heat and allow for additional climate control.

Poor goggle clip

I have used the helmet for about 4 seasons. Good fit and ventilation, but the goggle clip has been an ongoing issue. The plastic clip is open on the bottom, so the goggle strap would repeatedly slip out through the bottom opening. On my most recent ski weekend the plastic clip broke completely.

Broke in two places in two minutes

I got this in addition to the Aleck Bluetooth system. As I was watching an installation video to do it correctly, the helmet failed in two places. First, a seam on the ear flap ripped as I was attempting to open where the aleck goes into. I would imagine that if it was designed to go in here, there would be some more reinforcement, since you would be opening it many times to charge. Then as I was taking out the ear piece in order to get to the next section to put the aleck in, a piece of foam snapped off. I don’t understand how they can design these to be compatible when the process to set it in place is cheap and flimsy.

Not audio compatible

Unless I am missing something major. When I try and add audio to the ear cups there is no opening to drop in audio. Shame as this was needed for a trip this week. I ride solo so audio is important to me.

Painful to ears

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 6"

Thick ear pads pressed against my ears and became so painful I was constantly trying to loosen the helmet and take it off on the ski lift despite the helmet being on the large side for me, in fact it was probably too large. Seems to run slightly larger than the Giro helmets. Dial to adjust the fit was clunky and very hard to use without gloves, much less with gloves, seems like it'll break. Vents were nice and functioned well. worked well with my smith goggles, I could tell the airflow was increased but some people find that cooler and thus uncomfortable despite improved anti-fogging.
