The Network helmet features Zonal KOROYD® coverage, seen as the honeycomb material within the frame. Along with being lightweight, it is energy-absorbing and ventilated for impact protection.
MIPS, MIPS, MIPS! We are believers, the Mips® Brain Protection System reduces rotational forces caused by angled impacts to the head. When securing the helmet to your head you can feel the float of the outer shell from the Mips® system this allows the helmet to rotate on your head in the event of a crash reducing the initial impact and decreasing the trauma to your brain.
Fit / Integration
The Network helmet like many other Smith helmets is designed to integrate Smith performance eyewear along the front side of the helmet. We find this to be an intelligent solution to storing your glasses when you’re not wearing them.
While wearing your glasses, as we tend to do while riding, the AirEvac ventilation system helps to keep your lenses fog-free while riding.
- 15 fixed vents for consistent airflow
- Optional fabric visor
- Ionic+® antimicrobial lining offers sweat-activated odor control
- Lightweight, low-bulk single layer webbing

Across the out shell there are 15 fixed vents for consistent airflow to help keep you cool. All Network helmets include a removable fabric visor to reduce the amount of sun blasting into your eyes on the long midday rides.
Weighing in at ~300g for our size Medium, the Network helmet is light and comfortable with anti-microbial fabric on the interior pads.
Smith does a great job with fitting the helmet and adapting to a broad range of head shapes. From the ratcheting VaporFit mechanism on the back can be secured in three different positions to secure front to back fitment. Additionally the chin strap can be lengthened or shortened for top to bottom fitment with adjustable clasps for perfect comfort below the ears.
