  • Boa fit system lets you adjust the size of the helmet with precision
  • Snapfit SL Ear Pads are removable for spring riding
  • X-static lining features a soft, moisture-wicking, silver-coated fabric that moves sweat away from your head while you hike or shred
  • Dual-density EPS liner provides lightweight industry-standard protection against impact
  • Two rear sliders adjust front and rear vent zones to keep your head cool
  • Removable rear clip locks your goggle strap in place
  • Optional Skullcandy audio uses wires so you can jam out on the chairlift (Skullcandy sold separately)

Great helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Warm, comfortable, skullcandy compatible, and stylish. Can't go wrong with this product. Oh, and did I mention it can save your life?

Great helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've gone through a couple of helmets since the helmet era began. I started with a Leedom helmet which was more like a motorcycle helmet - there have obviously been many improvements since then. I then went to the Giro G10, which I liked only so-so. The Vantage is third in line now, but also my absolute favorite. It fits perfect. I paired it with a new pair of Smith Optics goggles so the fit at the brim is totally flush. The chinstrap and back of the neck adjustment works great. And most importantly, the vents are well placed and numerous. I like that you can vent the front or back of the helmet together or separately.

Great for hiking/climbing lines

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like the easy to open/close vents and the hard plastic shell for when I'm climbing lines that may have exposure to rockfall. The Maze and other ultra light helmets are nice and light, but don't vent as well, and seem like they might not stand up quite as well to rockfall or falling on rock. Comfort is good, venting is great, Smith I/O or I/OX integration is a big bonus, and the ability to zip the Skullcandy headphones into the ear covers is nice too.

Great Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have now had this helmet for a season and love it. The best parts about it are the venting, super quick and easy and works well, how well it fits with my I/O's, the comfortable inside, and how rad it looks. The one con is that my BOA system doesn't seem to work anymore, otherwise awesome helmet.

Vantage Helmet + I/O goggle FTW.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Smith Vantage with the I/O goggle is a fantastic combination. The helmet is well shaped, comfortably padded, liberally vented and looks great. The I/O goggle integrates with it seamlessly for a nice clean, good looking fit that performs (blocks wind and vents) flawlessly. I came from a Giro G10MX with Oakley Wisdom/Smith Phenom combo and would never look back. The goggle integration and over all fit and finish is head and shoulders above my previous system. Lesson: Wait till you need to replace both helmet and goggles and get a system that was designed to work together.

Got to have it!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This helmet is literally the best helmet I have ever had. I am on my 2nd one. It fits great and the 3 different sizes allow each individual to shop for the right fit instead of settling. My favorite feature of this helmet is the dual regulator. On other models the venting just does not breath, but this really breathes well.

Helmets only work if you wear them...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

...and you only wear things if you like them. 1) (IMO) This helmet looks rad. 2)It fits great and the micro adjustments allow you to get it dialed. 3)Super easy to do some climate adjustments...opening or closing different vents gives you a lot of freedom to keep your head feelin' proper. 4)Keeps your noggin safe!

brain bucket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was stuck between the Variant and the Vantage this year. However after trying on the Vantage I was sold. I have a "sensitive head" and most helmets and goggles tend to give me pressure headaches. I can wear this all day and I am not hindered. I got a medium so that I could adjust the fit, which is seamless with the BOA system in back. The vents open so easily you can adjust them even while you ski or sitting on the chair. I def feel more brave to go a little faster and crazier than before with this bad boy protecting the noggin :)

Great Dome Saver

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great fit and feels good on, but that's not the best part about it. Vents work really well allowing airflow like none other. Eliminates my goggle fog even in the slimmest of conditions. Zipped ear flats easily allow you to throw in some speakers if that's you thing, or just listed to your surroundings and they don't put too much pressure or limit your hearing. Best part is, like other helmets, they protect your dome. Don't be afraid to send it hard because your protected.

Solid Helmet

After racing my entire life I finally decided I needed to ditch my hard-ear Uvex for a softie. I tried on a bunch of different helmets including different Poc's and Smith's Variant.
The Vantage fit the best by far. It is light, breathable, and has versatile and easy-to-use vents to allow smooth temperature control.
The only knock I have on this helmet is that it seems to get loud and a little cold in the presence of high wind speeds. That might just be a quality of soft-ears vs. hard ears so other than that this helmet is excellent.

Best I've used

After searching for a while for a comfortable helmet that didn't look like a baloon on my head I finally settled on the Vantage. The adjustable vets can regulate the temperature well, and it is very lightweight so I don't notice wearing it very often. The brim is only marginally useful, infact it mostly just reduces the appearance of the dreaded gap. Otherwise I have no real complaints about this helmet.

The only one you need

I got rid of my Variant and now use this. Much better helmet. Lighter. Fits better and I think it looks lower profile. Works great with my IO's

I took apart the ear pads one day and am not sure I put it back together again properly as the Boa seems to not loosen up anymore as well as it used to (fortunately it fits, but right now only without a hat on). Are there any instruction sheets showing how to put it back together again? I think I threaded something the wrong way?

I love this helmet!

I have avoided wearing a helmet and just started this year. Not only does this protect but it keeps you warm or ventilated when necessary and is so light you honestly don't even know it is on your head.
