Smith Announces the launch of their new full face enduro oriented helmet. We’ve got one on the way for testing, so look for a review mid-summer. The helmet will be available for purchase in August.
When the terrain demands it, the all-new enduro full face Mainline helmet from Smith has you covered.
Designed for the elite level user, Smith’s team of product designers and engineers spent two years developing the pinnacle product with informed insights from notable Rocky Mountain Enduro athletes Remi Gauvin, Andreane Lanthier Nadeau, and Jesse Melamed. The Smith-sponsored team was crucial in formulating and refining the construction, design, features and aesthetics of the DH-certified (ASTM F1952) enduro helmet. The Mainline is available in three colorways, including a Sea to Sky inspired version, which will be worn by the Rocky Mountain Enduro team throughout the season.
Expanding Smith’s collection of progressive protection, the Mainline is comprised of
proven, lightweight in-mold construction featuring complete Koroyd® coverage to provide
integrated skeletal structure and complete ventilated protection.
The addition of a multi-directional impact protection system (MIPS®) lining reduces
rotational forces that the brain is exposed to during oblique impacts to the head. Smith
helmets are created to efficiently absorb direct impacts, and when combined with MIPS,
the helmet liner is separated from the head by a low-friction slip plane that allows the
head to slide during impact and may reduce instances of traumatic brain injuries.
Featuring 21 optimized vents, the Mainline utilizes internal air channels that combine
with open intake and exhaust ports to maximize ventilation and breathability, while
AirEvacTM channels promote airflow to prevent fogging when worn with goggles.
Three sets of uniquely sized cheek pads, two sets of uniquely sized crown liners, and
two unique neck rolls are included with each helmet to ensure a proper, customized fit.
The performance pads are all comprised of hybrid X-Static® and XT2® anti-bacterial
materials. All components can be easily removed for cleaning. Additional features
include an adjustable visor and D-ring chinstrap fastener.
The Mainline (MSRP $300) is available exclusively at select specialty bike retailers
beginning early June 2020, and online at smithoptics.com in early August 2020.
