    Built to keep up.

    The Smith Women's Valence Helmet offers lightweight, low-profile protection and comfort for demanding skiers and snowboarders who don't want a helmet that slows them down. Its hybrid shell design allows it to meet the highest safety standards while providing a light and comfortable fit that won't make it a burden to wear.

    Hybrid Shell construction combines a tough Bombshell ABS construction with low-profile In-Mold construction for the right blend of low weight and durability. Regulator vents can be opened varying amounts or closed entirely so you have complete control over how much airflow is getting in, and AirEvac 2 ventilation pulls air away from your goggles to keep them from fogging.

    Smith's exclusive Smith x Boa fit system is ergonomically contoured to fit your head securely and comfortably with an single-handed micro-adjuster that allows you to easily make on-the-fly adjustments. The X-Static performance lining has a women-specific fit and contains antimicrobial features that keep the liner fresh. Snapfit SL ear pads can be removed when it warms up in spring, and they're Skullcandy audio system-compatible (sold separately) so you can turn up the jams while you shred.

    Ski and safety first!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Bought this as a gift for my cousin and she absolutely loved wearing it during our family ski trip. The teal color is very pretty, the helmet is warm and comfy, and really cool that it has vents that can be opened and closed. Would definitely recommend this helmet!

    Great Helmet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this for a family member and this is their response.

    I have always heard that Smith helmets were good, and I can now say i see it. I love this helmet. Also for the price i think it would be harder to find a better helmet.

    Warm, comfy, and protective

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have only used this helmet a handful of times, but my initial impressions are that it is an awesome helmet. The lining on the inside is super soft and warm and the helmet is also highly adjustable. The vents are nice to be able to cool off during a long run. So far it has been great!

    Warm, Solid, & A Snug Fit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've skied with this helmet for three seasons and I'm a fan. The flaps on the ears and padding inside keeps you warm (a big thing for me), and all the adjustable features really seal the deal. Having vents on top make it easy to avoid fogging up your goggles, and the adjustable gear at the back means that if you have a smaller head you can make the helmet snug, or adjust the fit up if you have your hair in a braid or different style. The padded chin strap is nice also.
    I like the band in the back to lock in the goggles, as at times I find I forget I have them up on my helmet, and they slide off when I am taking my skins on or off, and the mechanism stops me from losing them. I have Anon goggles which fit snugly with the helmet but have a hard time staying on the top without sliding off because of the small lip up front.
    I tend to keep it in the bag Smith provides but even throwing around the white color for 3 years, I haven't dented or marked it up yet. At the bottom of the earflaps there are zippers that open easily that you could slide your earbuds into and turn up the volume on your mp3 if you didn't want to buy the integrated sound system, and that would likely work okay.
    Happy with the helmet, and feels more secure than the last one I bought and broke in a fall after a jump (note, they are supposed to do that, but it always felt a little loose and sloppy on as I have a smaller head, which this one doesn't).

    Works great.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I tried on a million helmets but I have a very small head and often resort to childrens helmets and goggles etc... This one fits me like a glove. Size small is perfect. It is warm and truly comfortable.


      I bought the Smith Valence with hybrid shell construction in small. Matte grape color. I love it. I have a very small head. I have to usually wear children's sunglasses, helmets, goggles etc...The woman's small fit. It is so warm. It is made bomber. I feel all grown up now.

      Smith Valence Helmet

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      I returned this helmet because it looked terrible on me and fit a bit large compared to other Smith helmets I've worn in the past. Overall, this is a good quality helmet. It's comfortable and I love that there are vents to let fresh air in. Would have loved this helmet if it fit me correctly.

      Great ski helmet

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love the red of the metallic pepper. Looks great. Keeps my head warm and super comfy and adjustable venting helps dial in the temperature you want. The liner and ear covers are super soft.


      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      The recipient of this gift is a new to helmet wearing. All that needs to be said is...She loves it! It is warm and comfortable. Helmets are definitely a personal fit item, and this one fits snugly around the head. It is audio compatible which is so nice! Ski safe.

      Yes! Love this helmet.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is Nick's wife, Lynsey:

      Ordered this helmet because I needed a new smaller sized helmet. I love it! I ordered a Small in Matte White. I look like a storm trooper in a good way. Super warm, great fit, adjustable in all the right places and vents for those hot days.

      Good Fit and Great Style

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I recently purchased this helmet for my Mom. She loves the fit and she is really happy with the Mettalic Truffel color as it isn't flashy but also isn't the same black helmet that all of her friends have.
      She is anxiously awaiting the start of the ski season so she can show off her new ski helmet.
