The carefully engineered in-mold construction of the Maze makes this low-profile helmet one of the lightest certified snow helmets in the world. The clean, timeless shape of the shell hides the Smith-pioneered AirEvac technology for superior goggle integration. The removable ear pads and self-adjusting lifestyle fit system assure an adaptive, comfortable fit. The Maze is the symbol of our minimalist, only-what’s-essential philosophy, giving you the protection you need in a fixed-ventilation helmet.
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.
