An evolution of an award-winning design, the Smith Forefront 2 MIPS bike helmet is a full-coverage helmet made for all-mountain riders who demand excellent protection, venting and eyewear integration.


  • Rotational motion can cause brain injuries; with MIPS, a low-friction layer slides 10 to 15mm in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
  • Lightweight Aerocore in-mold construction with ventilated protection features patented Koroyd® material and integrated skeletal structure
  • For added protection, Koroyd has been extended into the back of the helmet to now fully encompass the helmet
  • Internal air channels are combined with 20 optimized vents; open intake and exhaust ports maximize ventilation
  • AirEvac channels promote airflow to prevent fogging of your eyewear
  • 3-position visor rotates high to allow goggles or sunglasses storage
  • X-STATIC® lining with reactive cooling helps prevent your head from overheating; ultralight single-layer webbing
  • VaporFit adjustable fit system
  • Integrated camera and light mounts
  • Certification: CPSC, CE EN 1078


To find your size, position a tape measure just above your ears and about 1 in. above your eyebrows. Keep the tape level to measure the circumference around the largest part of your head and then find the corresponding size in the Technical specs info.
