    A new take on road helmets.

    You've respected Smith goggles and helmets since you were a know-it-all grom mobbing around your local mountain on skis or a board, and the brand's dependable gear has protected you from more than a few epic crashes over the years. With its passion for the outdoors, it's no surprise that Smith's been steadily expanding into the world of bike, and the Overtake Helmet represents its first foray onto the weight-conscious road cycling scene. An admirable blend of safety and comfort make the Overtake well worth your time and investment—after all, you don't bounce back as quickly as you did in the old days.

    The Overtake doesn't look like your typical road helmet, and part of that is due to Smith's use of Koroyd, a lightweight, attention-grabbing material that shares a strong resemblance to honeycomb. After finding Koroyd to be significantly more breathable than EPS foam, Smith used it to improve the Overtake's airflow and structural integrity with its ability to absorb almost 30% more impact in crashes than EPS.

    In addition to safety, Smith was also concerned with aerodynamics, and after expert opinions and extensive wind tunnel testing, the company settled on a design it was satisfied with for the Overtake, bringing it on par with other top-tier road helmets from more traditional cycling brands. The Overtake also displays the same user-friendly design Smith products are known for, with Smith's VaporFit adjustment system allowing you to dial in the right fit quickly pre-ride or out on the roads.

    My Most Comfortable Helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Extra Large

    When buying a helmet or shoes through a cyber store there is a certain amount of risk that the fit won't be right. I needed an extra large and it turned out to be a perfect fit. The strap is comfortable, too. My prior helmet was probably only two years old, but I really wanted the new MIPS technology. My only regret is that I had to go to plain Jane white. Basic colors from 2016 were the only options remaining during a close out sale and I wanted something that was highly visible I would recommend a Smith Overtake Helmet to anyone and hope that they never need to test it.

    First Smith helmet

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    My first Smith helmet and very happy. The medium fit true to size. Well built. I've been wearing Trek and Mavic for awhile but this helmet is just as or more comfortable. Most important reason that I bought the helmet is my riding buddy went over the bars and only had a slight headache when he should have had at least a concussion.

    Function and Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Smith makes great ski helmets as we all know, but when I purchased the Overtake Helmet for road biking this year I was beyond impressed. It is light but super durable, and has great airflow and doesn't get to hot on sweltering days. I got it in black and it is sleek and fits the head very well.

    Saved my life

    This isn't a mountain biking helmet, but I used it anyway because I neglected to buy a new helmet...regardless, I took a pretty nasty spill and was totally fine, thanks to this helmet. It's amazing to think that I would probably be a vegetable bleeding out on a rock, instead I was able to finish my ride and still have fun...amazing helmet, breaths well, looks good, saves lives.

    Saved my life

    One of the best helmets...

    • Fit: True to size

    love this helmet ...very light great coverage and love the fact no bugs can get in too!! MIPS very comfortable...I also have a POC which I love but with the big vents.... bugs ...bees have gotten in...Hope to never test it...but coverage great front and back...only used twice as I just received it...

    Fantastic.

    This is a great helmet. I was initially skeptical of the helmet due to the design and materials (koyrod) but wow does it work. I went with the black matte, I like how Smith decided to tone down the look of this helmet by not having contrasting colors with the koyrod. The previous iterrations were just too loud for me. The fit is spot on and the mechanisms for keeping the helmet in place are unobtrusive and work as they should. I can't fully comment on whether this helemet is cool or hot in the summer, since I've only ridden it in the winter. But, I will say that even with a skull cap on my head is significantly cooler than my old Giro Aeon. So I have high hopes for the summer and ventillation, I can really feel the cold air getting sucked over my head in the winter. Not the best for winter, but seems like it will be fine in the summer months. My only gripe with this helemet is the price, it just doesn't feel like a $250 helemt, I got mine on sale however. Highly recommended!

    Great new helmet

    The Smith Overtake helmet is a perfect fit and true to size. It is as comfortable as any I've owned. As for impact absorption, fortunately I have no experience with that.
