  • While most helmets protect only against direct impact, MIPS technology reduces rotational forces when the helmet gets hit at an angle
  • Aerocore Construction employs Koroyd® material that effectively crushes to absorb energy upon impact; it also absorbs the energy of low-speed impacts, unlike styrofoam
  • Koroyd material improves ventilation, increases impact resistance and reduces helmet volume and weight compared to traditional EPS (styrofoam)
  • VaporFit adjustable fit system secures the helmet and makes it comfortable to wear
  • 20 optimized vents provide cooling airflow when you're riding hard
  • X-Static with reactive cooling performance lining and single-layer webbing add comfort
  • Sunglasses integration with integrated visor
  • Certifications: CPSC, CE EN 1078, AS/NZS2063

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy and stylish I haven't had a new helmet in quite a while, so I may not have the best insight. But I have a good sized noggin and the medium is just right. The adjustment in wheel in the back is easy to adjust on the fly and can really make it feel snug. It looks like you can make this piece move up a notch, because of how it's attached on the inside of the helmet; however, I wasn't able to pop the little piece out. I was afraid I'd break it. I do want to try moving it up a notch because the bracket is pretty low and makes it hard to have a ponytail. I typically wear my hair on the lower side, but apparently not low enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this helmet I was in the market for a new helmet but not seriously looking. I was using another brand which was good other than the adjustable strap that goes around the back of your head sucked. It was almost impossible to use when wearing glasses. I was in a store and happened to try on the was instant love! The way the straps hold the helmet in place is a perfect 10. Best of all? It allows plenty of clearance for sunglasses! Schwing! After using it 10-15 times I'm still very impressed with how the helmet simply doesn't move on my head. I love the helmet so much I bought the Overtake as well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this helmet but it could use a little improvement. I had a pretty serious crash today on a loose, gravely downhill and my head and the Smith Rover came out unscathed. Thanks! That said, I did not study the photo long enough online and was under the impression the honey comb insert was on top as well. I always have bugs and bees flying in my helmet. Other photos which show different perspectives would be nice. Also, the strap on the back has a sharp edge on the top inside. I may have a strange shaped head but I filed it back just a little and it feels much better. My older helmet has a small piece of foam on that spot for that reason. The helmet is light, cool, fits great and has a very good visor which I really appreciate living in the very sunny state of Utah. Thanks again for the great head protection today!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All I expect from Smith except for the visor Top notch helmet and quality is what I expect from Smith. Still a bit pricey compared to equivalent models from other companies. The Forefront I can see the difference in price for. This helmet not so much. The visor gets in the way. Visor is not adjustable but thankfully it comes off. They should have put the Forefront visor system on this helmet and it would be nearly the ideal helmet. I just take it off and leave it off unless I am on a bike that has a very upright position. Fit is great which is why I like Smith helmets and my egg shaped head. Straps are comfortable and the locking system is very nice. This helmet breathes great plus there is no special mount needed for a light. The area to mount a light is nice and flat as well. Overall I am happy with the helmet. The visor is just too big and not adjustable so that is really the only issue with this helmet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Tried helmet after helmet to replace an old competitor helmet that changed its fit - for some reason most competitors have the overlap of sizes Medium and Large right where my head is - medium being too tight tight, large being too big and loose. The Rover medium fits perfectly and covers my noggin properly. I prefer the Rover over the more expensive Koroyd helmets for the added ventilation. Loving it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable Helmet Great looking helmet and comfortable fit. Used it for the 1st time on 142 mile 4 day MTB trip on Kokopelli Trail. My only complaints, and they are minor, are that the field of upper vision is reduced due to visor/helmet design. Near my occiput (back of head) I got two sore spots on day four where plastic helmet retention pieces put pressure in this area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Helmet Love this helmet. It's super light and breathes amazingly. The fit is a little odd - the M felt too small and the L feels almost too big but it works, and it accommodates a range of beanies, Buffs, pony tails etc underneath. Highly recommend it if you want to forget you have a helmet on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit, very comfortable. This helmet is really well ventilated and I love the Matte White. The helmet itself doesn't get too hot and really lets a lot of air get to your head. I haven't had a chance to evaluate the MIPS and I hope I don't get one!
