The new Smith Overtake Helmet is Smith’s second entry into the helmet market after last years Forefront Mountain Biking helmet was released. The Overtake road helmet uses impressive new technology that just might win you over. The dome protector is constructed with a new material called Koroyd that absorbs more impact energy than the traditional EPS foam used by so many. The material is also fully breathable and is paired with an Aerocore design that increases airflow to keep your head cool while improving aerodynamics and reducing drag. The helmet features the Multi-directional impact protection system (MIPS) which allows small rotation of the outer shell during impact and reduces impact the impact force. Weighing in at 250g the helmet may not be the lightest on the market, but is still very light and one of the safer road helmets there is. The Smith Overtake Helmet will launch in the fall in the mean time you can learn more here.
