Smith Optics Helmet?

August 15th, 2013

By Factory Jackson in Tech

They did it in snow and now they’re going to do it in MTB… Smith Optics have an ‘AM’ specific MTB helmet on the way and while we’ll reserve judgement on the looks of this new skid lid until we see it in the flesh, it is pretty cool that brands like Smith are getting into the mix – “The all-new FOREFRONT defines Smith’s innovation platform and serves as the ‘go to’ helmet for all-mountain riders. Created to provide all-mountain protection with road-race weight, the Aerocore™ construction of the FOREFRONT allows riders ventilated protection as never before seen in a bicycle helmet.”
