    Uncharted territory.

    The starter helmet you’ve had for, well, you can’t quite remember how many years now, has served you loyally in everything from beginner spills to over-the-handlebar launches. We know it’s hard to part with such an essential part of your kit, but believe us, it’ll be better for you in the long run. Once the EPS foam in Ol’ Reliable reaches a certain age, it doesn’t protect you as well as it should. Plus, with the impressive crop of new designs on offer this year, an upgrade will just be plain fun. We particularly like the looks of Smith’s latest off-road release, the Rover Helmet. Constructed to protect you without overwhelming, the Rover comes with a more affordable price than Smith’s previous offerings, which is something we can always get behind.

    Since they were introduced, Smith bike helmets have been known for the standout material that sits underneath their vents. It's called Koroyd, it looks like honeycomb, and it's Smith’s proprietary take on impact protection. The innovative tubes compress when Koroyd takes a hit, absorbing shock alongside the usual In-Mold polycarbonate shell and EPS foam duo. Smith sets the Rover apart from its original mountain helmet, the Forefront, by using Koroyd more sparingly, thus creating a lighter, more breathable design and saving the above-mentioned cash. Equipping the helmet for run-ins with unyielding trail furniture, Smith carries over the generous coverage of the Forefront to the Rover, extending coverage along the temples and back of the head for increased protection.

    As a relative newcomer to the world of bike helmets, Smith demonstrates it learned a thing or two making snow sports gear first by adding effective ventilation and fit adjustment to all of its cycling helmets. Features like the efficient VaporFit Adjustable Fit system and the network of 18 vents as part of Smith’s AirEvac ventilation system demonstrate why Smith has made such a seamless transition into making four seasons of gear. No kinks to be worked out in this design; the Rover comes ready to accompany you to the brown pow and keep you safe when you go a little too big.

    Buy Smith

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have been a loyal smith customer for years, so I chose this helmet over other brands when I was in the market. I have not been disappointed. It fits great and is lightweight. Smith has the best products and customer service in the business.

    Smith is the king of helmets right now

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    For reals, the title says it all. I am not going for the Tour De France look anytime I ride; if thats you, stay clear. I am usually looking for a good looking helmet, with good protection, and is comfortable. And this helmet hits all three of those criteria! Also, with those green tubes, its surprisingly well vented. I use this helmet for both mountain and road biking, and its perfect for both

    Keep coming back to Smith

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I keep attempting to stray from Smith for snowboard and MTB helmets, but they keep dragging me back in for being the best designed product out there. This helmet is so lightweight and comfortable it almost feels like I am wearing a ball cap not a helmet. There are plenty of vents to keep you cool during hot desert rides.

    Would recommend to anyone

    Smith has done it again

      I will start out by saying that the Forefront was a home run. It fits excellently, and surprisingly looks quite stellar. The all new rover is no exception. Probably the most comfortable helmet ever to sit on my noggin, the helmet combines sleek modern style fit, with excellent breathability and protection. Unfortunately however, you can't take off the visor, or else the all new rover turns into the all new route.

      Perfect MTB helmet

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Helmet is light weight, comfortable and very high performance overall without looking all tech'd out. Its got the additional coverage that you need for an all-mountain/trail helmet. Best fitting helmet I've had.
