Greg Heidtwrote a review of Smith Forefront MIPS Helmet on April 27, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a comfortable helmet and I like the idea that it has an additional safety rating. I find that the ventilation is not enough for me on hard XC rides. I think the honeycomb padding restricts most airflow. Especially on long climbs, I am absolutely pouring sweat under this lid. Another annoying thing is that I pull out the pads every 5ish rides and handwash with cool water. After about four months of doing this, the mating velcro surface separated from the foam padding. I had to cobble it together the night before a race with hot glue. Compared to my Giro road helmet that has been going strong for 11 years now, I'm not super impressed with this product. I also don't agree with the description that this helmet does anything for sunglasses fog prevention, my Oakley EVZero Pitch glasses fog up under this dome piece just as often as any other helmet.
