What features make Smith's Quantum Helmet stand out? Find out in our review
Smith Quantum Helmet RRP £255
This is one of the most expensive helmets we’ve reviewed, but you do get an extremely good lid for your money. It also looks pretty cool. The hybrid shell construction comes with a MIPS system along with an impact-resistant Koroyd inner, which is used in conjunction with Smith’s ‘Aerocore’ design to allow better airflow through the helmet. This is further aided by an impressive 22 adjustable air vents, with the front vents being adjusted independently of the rear (and vice versa).
A fully adjustable Boa FS360 fit system keeps the helmet secure on your noggin, and the ‘Wayfinder’ strap system, which uses a Fidlock buckle, is the best one-handed system I’ve come across. The lining is designed to wick away sweat, and the ear pads can be removed in warmer conditions; the lightweight goggle lock is also removable. In addition, the Quantum is compatible with Outdoor Tech audio systems.
FOR Excellent all-round protection system
AGAINST Liner doesn’t offer a great deal of padding; expensive
