The Code combines a minimalist aesthetic with Aerocore construction featuring Koroyd for the new front edge of skate-style protection. The low-profile shell design is better protection combined with Smith-pioneered AirEvac technology for superior goggle integration. The Wayfinder strap system featuring Fidlock is functional simplicity, making it easy to use one hand for on and off use. The technical-knit liner provides beanie-like comfort with a Boa 360 fit system that lets you customize your fit. This is the first true solution for advanced riders who want superior protection and functionality with a minimal look.
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. 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.
BOA FS360 Fit System
Taking customized fit to the next level, Smith introduces the Boa FS360 Fit System. With a full 360° 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.
