The ultimate helmet in the Smiths performance road collection is the all-new Trace. The Trace has Koroyd, which completely surrounds the helmet and provides exceptional protection and works with the internal air channels and open intake and exhaust ports for maximum ventilation. Storage and ventilation of glasses are crucial during those long journeys. The AirEvac system from Trace reduces the warm air that builds up on your glasses to prevent condensation. The storage of glasses is made easy by channels on the side of the helmet that keep your glasses in place for those grueling climbs.
The combination of Koroyd's precise and unique thermal welding process leads to a structure with both extremely efficient and consistent energy-absorbing properties. In the event of a collision, the cores crush in a fully controlled manner, slowing the energy of the impact and reducing the eventual traumatic levels.
Koroyd is an energy absorber that is completely breathable and does not harm impact performance. Koroyd's open cell construction provides cool air while hot air is drained from the rider's head. The fully open cell construction integrates with internal channels to create the complete Aerocore construction for ventilated protection.
Thousands of co-polymer extruded tubes, thermally welded to create an unmatched consistent and fully designed core. Each Koroyd section has been developed based on accurate durometer, dimensional and thickness specifications to provide the greatest impact resistance and aesthetically consistent presentation.
MIPS - Multiple Impact Protection System
MIPS is used to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the event of an oblique impact. Smith helmets are designed to absorb direct impacts very efficiently and, in combination with MIPS, Smith helmets absorb incline forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell with respect to the liner.
