This top of the range trail helmet from Smith Optics builds on the strong design of the Forefront, which has received some very positive reviews. The Forefront 2 has a slimmer, more compact profile and has increased coverage of Koyroyd material for improved protection and venting.

One big plus point to note is that the adjustable visor on the front of this lid can be pushed up far enough to be able to stick your goggles underneath it. The helmet also has very well designed glasses compatibility.

Technology:

MIPS

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.

What are all those little tubes?

That's Koroyd technology. 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.

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.
