Smith Launches All New Method Snow Helmet
October 4, 2023
Low Profile, Clean Styling, and Top Technologies for On-Snow Protection and Performance
PORTLAND, OREGON (Winter 2023/24) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Innovators across snow helmets and goggles for almost 60 years, SMITH is excited to announce the launch of the new Method helmet, a unisex style designed for park riding, storm chasing, freeriding or freestyling every on-snow adventure in between.
The low profile and clean styled in-mold construction of the Method helmet fuses the exterior shell and EPS for a one-piece design that’s lightweight and durable. Hidden beneath the shell are the latest safety innovations including zonal Koroyd® coverage for lightweight, energy-absorbing, and ventilated impact protection and MIPS® Brain Protection System across all colorways for reducing rotational forces caused by angled impacts to the head in the event of a crash.
The minimalist helmet packs maximum features including eight fixed vents for consistent airflow, goggle compatible AirEvac™ ventilation system for fog-free lenses, and removable ear pads for form fitting comfort. The Method also offers SMITH’s self-adjusting, Lifestyle Fit System that flexes to match the shape of the head for ultimate comfort. Also available in Round Contour Fit to accommodate rounder head shapes.
The Method helmet can be worn with or without a beanie and is compatible with Aleck™ audio systems (sold separately). It is offered in four sizes and nine colorways, including a graphic version celebrating Japanese big snow culture in collaboration with Oyuki and illustrated by artist Mike Shankster
The new Method helmet (MSRP $140 USD with MIPS, $110 non-MIPS) is available in Winter 2023 at select retailers worldwide and online at smithoptics.com.
