Why We Like The Network MIPS Helmet

We live for the all-day rides, carving our way up dramatic canyons, cruising through miles of wild vineyards, and along coastal highways — but admittedly, we're not always so lucky to have the time. Often times we're limited to our daily commute to get in the weekday miles, and crave equipment that is versatile enough to bounce back and forth from one to the other. Designers at Smith seem to have received our asks, and answered thoroughly with the Smith Network MIPS Helmet. All new for 2018, the Network Helmet finds an uncanny balance of style, versatility, and performance, packing in MIPS and Koroyd technology to protect, with modern design and ventilation to keep you looking, and feeling cool, whether on your commute or your all-day epic.

Smith's Koroyd technology is found in the funny looking layer of honeycomb tubes that run beneath the outer shell and more traditional EPS foam throughout the helmet. It's made of thousands of tiny, extruded co-polymer tubes that absorb impact but have a fenestrated surface that allows for a level of breathability impossible to achieve with solid EPS foam while absorbing a claimed 30% more energy. Plus, it's pretty cool looking, especially in Smith's mix of contrasting and complementary color schemes.

Network helmet

I’ve worn a lot of helmets over the last 30 years, this is by far my favourite. Just purchased another one after a crash. Best fit, best ventilation and best protection!

It is a classy looking

It is a classy looking helmet. It is light and I hardly know I’m wearing it. It fits well.

Network Mips

My daughter had a bad crash biking while wearing this helmet. she got a concussion among other things, but this helmet seriously saved her life. Buying the exact same one as a replacement.

Years of peace of mind

I've had a Smith Network for several years and couldn't be happier. Fits very well, is comfortable, and it has all the top-notch safety features one could want for more peace of mind. I worked at bike shops for years so have compared Smith helmets to many other brands. Also very good customer service. Lastly, IMHO all helmets make all people look kind of dorky... but these are among the most stylish versions and least dorky lids out there ;)

My Network saved me from a serious head injury!

I purchased a new Network MIPS helmet on June 9th and on Aug 10th I had a cyclist cut in front of me at a a blind T intersection, they unfortunately also stopped across the trail in front of me leaving me only a few sec for me to react. I was unable to stop in time, tried going right but still hit them. I went flying off the bike to the right . Hit my left side, scrapes road rash n left forarm , a few cuts and bleeding and hit my head last from fall.(also 3 ribs broken I learned later) My Network fit perfect staying in place, I only felt a slight bump on the top left side when my head hit last but the inside of the helmet is all displaced. IT worked perfect Next 3 days I had a slight concussion but without my Smith Network helmet it would have been much worse. The road rash is all healed now, ribs also and I was over the concussion within 7 days. I am back on my bike.

Okay Helmet;

I have been riding this helmet for two years. It is comfortable; I have had to replace the pads a few times; they do not last very long. I normally wash them once a month, they need to be replaced every three or they start to fall apart. The form in the inserts is a little annoying for head scratching but there are still a few open holes. I do not think the helmet sits right on my head, every time I see a photo of myself it is crooked even though it is snug. It works but I probably wouldn't purchase the same model again./

Disappointing fit - helmet shape, straps and pony tail slot just not right.

The fit of this helmet is not adequate for my head. I have a small head and maybe it's oval, not round, because the ball shaped Smit Persist doesn't seem to conform to the shape of my head and it won't sit correctly regardless how much I tighten the dial on the back. As another reviewer commented, the adjustability on the straps is quite minimal, and to attempt to make it stay on correctly, I need to cinch them right up to my ear lobes. Lastly, the ponytail slot is TINY. I don't have a lot of thick hair, but it's very tight trying to pull my skimpy pony tail through the small space available. I would really like to return it.

Nice Helmet but Cheap Thin Straps

I ordered a large Network helmet and after some adjusting the helmet is pretty nice. The only issue are the straps. they are thin and somehow the left ear strap is spun around. I cannot get the strap to lay flat against my cheek. The buckle that you cinch up close to the ear sits sideways against my face. PRETTY FREAKING ANNOYING. I will keep trying to adjust and fixt this but I don't see how it got spun around, it is one strap that runs along he entire back of the helmet.

Super comfortable, easy to adjust,

Super comfortable, easy to adjust, and great colour choices! I feel very secure while commuting knowing that I'm protected by Mips

The bucket on this helmet

The bucket on this helmet took me a bit to adjust, but I like the style better than the helmet it replaced. The included MiPs and Kyroid makes it clear safety is a key design feature. I love the integration of the sunglass holder, but I wish there was an integrated way to mount a light without straps or a GoPro without using sticky tape.
