Why We Like The Signal MIPS Helmet

Sure, the aero helmets of the pro peloton look slick during a time trial, but for the everyday rider, that is a bit much for cruising down city streets. Smith's Signal MIPS Helmet delivers pro-level protection and features in a package much better suited to the bike paths of our hometown loops. With 21 vents to draw air through the helmet, we can stay cool  and comfortable, and arrive to work without too much of a helmet hair effect. The vents also help prevent fogging when we're wearing our fastest sunglasses that sit close to the helmet's edge.

Smith uses their VaporFit system, which has a dial and allows for up, down, fore, and aft movement for your perfect fit. A well-fitting helmet is a safer helmet, and with three sizes to choose from, you can make sure to have the best fit for your head. The MIPS layer is a strategically anchored liner on the inside of the helmet that moves independently of the helmet shell to redirect impacts. All of these features add up to a helmet that feels light on your head as you cruise through town with the protection you need to get home safely.

A Smith helmet that fits my noggin!

Although I would like other colours in XL (in bike helmets), this one fits great. Smith really needs to make other bike helmets in size XL. Ski helmets they do, but not many bike helmets.

A little bit too tight.

A little bit too tight. And I have to pay the shipping to send it back. So I say to myself, Rey bad move to buy an helmet without trying it. Bad experiences

Great Protection

Switched to this product for the MIPS and how sturdy it appeared. I only had the opportunity to wear the helmet for 8 minutes before a distracted driver turned left into my path. The helmet did what it was suppose to, I had no injury to my head. I will be replacing this helmet with the same!

I like the style, fit

I like the style, fit and comfort of the helmet. It was definitely an upgrade over my old helmet which was questionable in all these categories.

Nice for the price, but …

Nice, light and well-fitting, but the strap system is terrible. The little buckles will tear your fingers up trying to pry them open and no matter what you do, you’ll never get them to lay flat.

Crash Tested

This is my second Smith helmet. The first one took a brutal impact to the road and I don't know if I'd be here today without it. I was very impressed with how it performed, so I bought another one to replace it. It's also comfy and light.

Beau design, se porte très bien, bon rapport qualité/prix. Je me sens en sécurité sans la protection des alvéoles cependant.

Great product.

Great helmet. Really easy to adjust the fit. The straps aren’t all twisty and weird, and it feels very secure. Would buy again.
