Description

The Quantum is protection with maximum horsepower. Using Aerocore™ construction featuring Koroyd® and Smith’s innovative Exoskeleton design to provide increased protection in side-impact zones, this is the helmet for athletes pushing the limits on the mountain. The new Wayfinder Strap System featuring Fidlock® is functional simplicity, making it easy to use one hand for on and off buckle use. For the most custom fit, the Quantum offers the Boa® FS360 fit system with a 360˚ halo design. Combine all this with the Smith-pioneered AirEvac technology for superior goggle integration. The Quantum delivers maximum protection and functionality for use in the most critical situations.

Aerocore™ construction

Featuring Koroyd®

Smith's objective and design philosophy behind Aerocore™ construction is to increase airflow, improve temperature regulation resulting in fog-free vision and improve impact resistance. The objective was achieved through the combination of materials such as EPS and Koroyd®, a revolutionary new material that absorbs more energy upon impact when compared to international standards, while increasing airflow. Aerocore™ construction through the use of Koroyd® and EPS allows for more vents to be placed throughout the helmet without sacrificing protection and comfort.
Aerocore Construction

Four Primary Benefits

  • Improved airflow and ventilation
  • Increased impact resistance
  • Reduce helmet volume and weight
  • Fog-free vision
Engineered Absorption

Engineered Absorption

The combination of Koroyd's® precise and unique thermal welding process leads to a structure with both extremely efficient and consistent energy absorption properties. Upon impact, the cores crush in a completely controlled manner, decelerating the energy from the impact and reducing the final trauma levels.
Engneered Protection

Engineered Protection

Thousands of co-polymer extruded tubes, thermally welded to create an unparalleled consistent and fully engineered core. Each Koroyd® section is engineered to precise durometer, size, and thickness specifications to provide the greatest impact resistance and aesthetically consistent presentation.
Full Breathability

Full Breathability

Koroyd® is an energy absorber which is fully breathable and doesn't compromise impact performance. Koroyd's® open cell construction allows cool air in, while expelling hot air from the rider's head. The completely open cell construction integrates with internal channels to create the full Aerocore™ construction to provide ventilated protection.


MIPS technology

Multi-directional impact protection system

MIPS is used to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. Smith helmets are created to absorb direct impacts very efficiently and when combined with MIPS, Smith helmets absorb oblique forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner.
MIPS in action

MIPS in action

When you fall to the ground at an angle rotational forces are generated. A helmet integrating MIPS technology creates a sliding layer between the outer shell and the head. This allows the helmet's outer shell to slide relative to the head when hitting the ground, so the rotational force is decreased, reducing the potential to damage your brain.
MIPS strain levels

Strain Levels

Simulated deformation of the brain from angled impact when the user is wearing a helmet with and without MIPS.

Smith comfort

Climate Control

DUAL REGULATOR

Dual Regulator

Temperature control is the most important feature when considering how to enjoy the entire day on the hill. Our Dual Regulator ventilation system independently controls the front and rear sections of the Vantage venting, allowing you to modulate your body temperature even in extremely cold conditions. By exhausting heat through the rear vents while maintaining a sealed front end, your body can eff ectively cool down if needed and avoid the dreaded “ice cream headache.”

Ultimate integration

At Smith, we design helmets and goggles to work together as a fully integrated system. For the helmet line, the most important factor in integration is the AirEvac ventilation system. This is the bridge that allows goggles and helmets to function as one system, venting warm moist air away from the goggles, through the helmet climate control system and ultimately away from the head.
Airevac 2: Constant Airflow
AirEvac 2 continues to drive the warm air away from the goggle through external vents and internal channels in the EPS liner. Internal airflow can be adjusted through the helmet's Regulator climate control system.

Shell construction

Hybrid In-Mold-Schutz

HYBRID SHELL CONSTRUCTION

Smith's Hybrid Shell construction combines separate lightweight and durable shells to create an entirely new helmet category. By fusing our tough bombshell ABS construction with flyweight In-Mold technology, our Hybrid Shell construction optimizes the favorable traits of each material in this revolutionary process. The result is a modern design that provides a lightweight, low profiles, perfectly fitting helmet. Hybrid Shell construction also creates a clean, smooth top surface by enabling the low profiles Regulator to function with reduced mass and volume.

Smith fit

 

Taking customized fit to the next level, Smith introduces the Boa FS360 Fit System. With a full 360 degree halo design, this system advances the category by offering both forward and lateral fit adjustments. Feel the fit system snug to the head in a full halo, allowing for a "floating" effect that eliminates helmet hot spots. Offering Boa's standard intuitive dial system for on-the-fly micro-adjustability, along with vertical adjustment options, the Boa FS360 Fit System is a best-in-class fit system, offered in Smith's market-leading Vantage helmet.
