The Smith Persist combines lightweight protection against impacts with a fully adjustable and comfortable fit.

The VaporFit™ system adjusts with a simple dial, tightening like a halo around your head. It can also be moved in four different directions for a secure, personalised fit. 21 vents around the helmet provide all the ventilation you need for baking hot days on the trail and there's a wicking liner for comfort.

The Persist also incorporates MIPS® Brain Protection System for extra safety. This additional layer between the padding and foam reduces the impact of angled falls by protecting against rotational movement in the brain.
