    Smarter is better.

    Wearing a helmet is always smart when you're skiing or snowboarding, and wearing Smith's Pivot Helmet is slightly smarter. With a Bombshell Plus construction and a multi-impact EPP Liner, the Pivot Helmet offers longer-lasting protection than most helmets. Its AirEvac 2 ventilation system includes 13 vents with dual adjusters for customized airflow, and the lifestyle fit system self adjusts for a secure fit. The Pivot also features a smooth X-Static lining that doesn't pull hair, a removable goggle lock for convenience, and Skullcandy compatibility inside the earmuffs.

    Looks good, doesn't fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    This helmet looks great and the quality appears to be excellent! Unfortunately an L is far too small for my head. It's not so much the size as it is the shape. If you have an oval head (looking down from above you), this will not fit you well.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Protects the noggin and is fairly lightweight so that I do not feel like a bobble head while on the slopes. After one too many concussions, it was time to wear a helmet full time and this was my go to. Looks good and functional. Fits and breathes well with other brand goggles as well. I am a fan of goggle strap under the helmet and works perfectly with my Dragon X-1's.

    Safety Yes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Do you have a head? Hrm, If you're reading this....
    If you did not already receive superior titanium brain protection surgery, this is a solid helmet even without MIPS feature.
    I bought this as a first ski helmet. It's my first season on the slopes and didn't plan on going too fast or attempting anything very dangerous, and opted out of the MIPS model.
    Skiing and Snowboarding have some of the highest accident statistics of all outdoor sports, so get a helmet.

    On my first day wearing this, I found myself in the trees with some rough mongrels. Moguls? Maybe that's it. Well, something threw my head into a tree and gosh darn if I thought I wasn't thrown into a black void.
    The helmet had unnoticeable damage to it, and my head was unscathed. There were no after effects, or other later damage/headaches.
    Protection value - 10/10

    It does put a lot of pressure on my ears, and they are very sore at the end of the day, but I may try to make some slight fit adjustments to fix it.

    Holds my goggles in place well, looks really nice.
    Overall great first helmet.

    Smith Pivot in Medium

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

    Awesome Helmet! Super comfy & warm, and fits like a glove! Also fits perfect with my Oakley Flight Deck goggles. Wore it on my trip to New Hampshire and was extremely pleased with it!

    Very comfy; matte white smudges easily

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I replaced a Bern Watts EPS helmet with this because I wanted better helmet-goggle integration. I usually wear a medium helmet for skiing and biking (55-59cm head circumference for most manufacturers) and this was right on the money. There's no mechanism to micro-adjust the fit other than folding some parts of the interior padding; an elastic band at the back stretches to accommodate bigger heads. The lack of adjustability was not a problem for me because the sizing was right on the money. For what it's worth, my Bern helmet was a medium too.

    I'm wearing the Pivot with Smith IO goggles, which integrate rather well. You have to keep the goggle straps higher on the sides of the helmet to keep the goggles flush with the small visor; you'll have a small "gaper gap," otherwise. The helmet seems to have adequate venting and hasn't contributed to any goggle fogging (I failed to let my lens dry after skiing once, which caused them to fog up...nothing to do with helmet/goggle integration, but something to be aware of with Smith lenses apparently).

    In addition, I appreciate the removable ear pads now that it's spring. You'll definitely want to wear something else if you're hiking for a while, though.

    Lastly, if I were to purchase again, I would NOT get the matte white color. If you like squeaky-clean gear, know that it's a constant battle to remove smudges. The matte finish really captures a lot of grime. This is a minor negative that doesn't affect functionality, but it might annoy some folks.

      I'm confident this helmet will protect my brain but it has it's shortcomings. No adjustability for sizing and no way to close the vents are two pretty big bummers. There are thin flaps inside the helmet that fold in and out of the way for vent control but that doesn't really amount to much in terms of function at all.

      Yellow Helmet

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

      I like the style and comfort of the helmet; however, the lack of an adjustable ratchet to fit the helmet around your head I found the helmet to not be as secure as I'd like a helmet to be. I found the after stomping some mega airs the helmet would push my goggles forward leaving me with some major gaper gap!
