Smith announces the launch of the new Rover bike helmet. Built for the everyday rider, the Rover incorporates enhanced safety materials, sleek design and a customized fit system for cyclists pursuing their thrills out on the trail.

Comprised of proven lightweight in-mold Aerocore™ construction, featuring Koroyd® technology, the helmet utilizes zonal ventilated protection in targeted impact areas to offer safeguarded coverage where and when it matters most.

For the trail-seeking wanderer, the Rover boasts 20 optimized vents and an integrated visor for all-mountain riding. The helmet includes AirEvac ventilation, an anti-microbial X-Static performance liner with Reactive Cooling, ultra light single layer webbing, and a VaporFit™ adjustable fit system for increased comfort.

We ride on the road, in the dirt, and commute by bike and these new models exemplify all of us as cyclists in our own unique way.”
