Athlete Driven Collection

Brett Rheeder The Mount Albert, Ontario native’s hard work and dedication to his craft does not go unnoticed. With a prolific bag of tricks and unique style, Brett Rheeder has become a household name in regards to freeride mountain biking. Whether it’s slope style parklaps or backcountry booters, the precision displayed on every run demonstrates the amount of attention he puts into his preparation. Brett’s riding style makes the most complex tricks and lines look smooth. This concept carried over into the design of Brett’s signature Squad MTB goggle. Brett requested a design with a simple first read, but after a closer look, you’ll notice the subtle plaid and wood grain textures, giving a nod to his Canadian roots.

2017 Performance Eyewear 51

Aaron Gwin Aaron Gwin is no stranger to podiums. The reigning UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup Overall Champion began his professional career at the ripe age of six, where he gained national sponsorship attention and a top 5 ranking racing BMX. A few years later Aaron made the switch to racing downhill mountain bikes, and immediately became a force to be reckoned with. By 2011, Aaron won a record breaking 5 of 7 races and was en route to his first World Cup overall title and the most impressive season in the sport’s history. Since then, Gwin has hardly slowed down, and despite flat tires and broken chains he remains one of the most consistent racers to dominate the sport. Aaron chose to tap into his So-Cal roots for the design of his signature 2017 Squad MTB goggle. Inspired by psychedelic surf art, the design team at Smith worked closely with Aaron and good friend Tag Gasparianhis of Tagger Designs to create this one-of-a-kind goggle.

Smith's first unapologetic mountain bike goggle, the Squad MTB provides you with crystal-clear vision, maximum ventilation, precise fit and excellent helmet integration.

2016 MIPS Technology 59

MIPS technology Multi-directional impact protection system 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 e�iciently and when combined with MIPS, Smith helmets absorb oblique forces better by allowing a small rotation of the outer shell relative to the liner.

MIPS LAYER OUTER SHELL

© Smith Sport Optics, Inc. 2016

MIPS EFFECT

MIPS EFFECT

MIPS EFFECT

MIPS IN ACTION 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.

Aerodynamic study: Overtake Superior aerodynamics, improved protection, and ultimate ventilation The most complete helmet on the market.

AERODYNAMICS - WIND TUNNEL DATA No one questions wind tunnel data and we are not about to start. However, the science does require expertise. Through a partnership with the FASTER wind tunnel and world-renowned aerodynamicist Len Brownlie, we tested the new Overtake against the current best-in-class helmets using the Wind Averaged Drag (WAD) methodology. This methodology was developed for the automobile industry decades ago but at Brownlie’s direction, has been modified for cycling-specific tests. To make it as simple as possible for athletes and consumers to understand, the WAD method aggregates the drag measurements from several discrete yaw angles into a single “wind averaged” measure of drag. This provides final estimated time savings for a 40k time trial.

RESULTS:

As the results show, the Overtake is nearly identical in aerodynamics to the Evade. With superior ventilation, protection and lower weight, the Overtake truly leads.

Temperature drop The head is warmed up evenly up to 40°C. The wind tunnel is started to get up to the required speed (40km/h); the target speed is kept for the fixed time (90s). The local drop in temperature is measured across 32 thermocouples in ºC. Bigger temperature drop figures = better ventilated. Lower thermal coe�icient figures = better ventilated.

Aerocore™ construction ® featuring Koroyd Superior aerodynamics, improved protection, and ultimate ventilation

KOROYD® INCOMING COOL AIR

EPS AIREVAC

VENTILATION Temperature control has a major effect on a rider’s performance. The Overtake’s Aerocore™ construction allows us to create a helmet that ventilates in a new, and protective way. By integrating the patented Koroyd® tubular structure with traditional EPS, both active and passive ventilation systems allow the rider's head to exhaust more heat. The 360-degree fit system and minimal padding effectively suspend the helmet off of the rider’s head allowing each and every Koroyd® tube to constantly evacuate hot air. The result: instead of building up pools of sweat that then come in contact with air passing under the vent (the traditional ‘cooling effect’), heat escapes constantly, keeping the rider cooler, longer.

WEIGHT Weight is an absolute value but not the only one we care about. At Smith, we create helmets with the goal to be as light as possible, but also with the goal of providing best-in-class protection, fit, and aerodynamic performance. At 250g you may find a lighter helmet but you won’t find one that aids your overall comfort, safety and performance better than ours.

ENGINEERED ABSORPTION

ENGINEERED PROTECTION

FULL BREATHABILITY

The combination of Koroyd’s® precise and unique thermal welding process leads to a structure with both extremely e�icient and consistent energy absorption properties. Upon impact, the cores crush in a completely controlled manner, decelerating the energy from the impact and reducing the final trauma levels.

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.
