Forefront Helmet Geometry / Size Chart

Bike Geometry
Smith Optics Forefront Helmet <p>Descending from on high upon the land of mountain bikes from the world of ski and snowboard helmets, Smith Optics brings a lot of protection know-how to the game. The Forefront is simultaneously light, breathable, stylish, and incredibly safe &ndash; a rare intersection in the mountain biking sphere.</p> <p>The Forefront helmet is foremost a full coverage helmet, providing protection from a wide variety of potential impacts - exactly what you want from an all-mountain lid. But it&#39;s the Koroyd technology - the honeycomb-like lattice beneath the helmet&#39;s external shell - that&#39;s the game-changer. Smith claims that when the material is combined with the industry-standard EPS, the helmet will dissipate 30% more energy from a crash before it reaches your head.<br /> All that protection doesn&#39;t translate to a heavy package or a hot noggin, thanks to Smith&#39;s proprietary Aerocore technology, which orients the Koroyd&rsquo;s hollow tubular structure in such a way that it accelerates both air intake and air exhaust. That increased airflow isn&#39;t just beneficial for body temperature regulation: the Forefront&#39;s AirEvac ventilation system also keeps warm air away from your sunglasses or goggles, reducing fogging.</p> <p>The best helmet in the world won&#39;t do you much good if it doesn&#39;t fit, of course. VaporFit, Smith&#39;s turn-dial fit system, offers a full five centimeters of adjustability. The whole VaporFit system can move up and down or rotate forwards and backwards for perfect engagement. And although Smith may be relatively new to the bike helmet market, the snow sports giant is no stranger to product integration. Nifty slots allow you to slide your sunglasses onto the front or back of your helmet on long, hot climbs, and an integrated elastic loop will secure your goggles on aggressive descents. The removable visor can rotate a full 15 degrees, integrates with goggles, and won&#39;t bounce around. Smith offers dedicated mounts for solid support of GoPro cameras and Light in Motion lights, too.</p> <p>With boatloads of tech, sharp style, and genuine safety and material innovations, the Smith Forefront Helmet is at the forefront of the mountain bike helmet game.</p>
