Smith Launches New Route and Rover Bike Helmets

Adding to its comprehensive collection of award-winning performance cycling headwear, Smith announces the launch of the new Route and Rover bike helmets. Built for the everyday rider, both models incorporate enhanced safety materials, sleek design and a customised fit system for cyclists pursuing their thrill on the road or out on the trail.

Smith helmets are created to efficiently absorb direct impacts, and all colorways of the Route and Rover are available with an optional multi-directional impact protection system (MIPS®) lining that reduces rotational forces that the brain is exposed to during oblique impacts to the head. When combined with MIPS, the helmet liner is separated from the head by a low-friction slip plane that allows the head to slide during impact and may reduce instances of traumatic brain injuries.
