Smith - Podium
The key to speed is having the confidence to know that you’re wearing the best protection in town, and that’s exactly what you get with Smith’s MIPS-assisted Podium TT Helmet. You can read below for full details, but the skinny on MIPS is that it works hard to keep your head still in the event of a crash, and this is frankly unbeatable, especially when paired with Koroyd technology which improves impact absorption considerably. It works like a car in the event of a crash, using crumple-zone cylinders to crush evenly all the way round to convert more kinetic energy effectively, while also reducing weight and increasing ventilation. There’s plenty of extra breathability through exhaust vents, while the inner lining features a powerful anti-bacterial finish to ensure you stay as fresh as possible for mile after mile. Finally, the helmet features a vison-enhancing visor with optional ChromaPop lens for the complete package.
What is MIPS?
• MIPS is a Brain Protection System
• Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
• The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
• MIPS adds protection
WHAT IS ChromaPop?
When your see more, you can do more. Charge harder, faster and longer with the amplified detail and enhanced natural colour if ChromaPop™. Through our proprietary ChromaPop™ lens technology, we help you see detail and colour beyond normal capabilities. ChromaPop™ filters two specific wavelengths of light that cause colour confusion. By doing this the lens delivers greater definition, more natural colour and unmatched clarity to allow you to see more detail.
