glenFwrote a review of Smith Overtake Helmet on March 14, 2019
I used the MIPS version of this helmet about 1.5 years. I found it to be much noisier (wind noise) than my previous helmet. I don't know if it was due to the straps not being against the side of my head or if it was from the honeycombs, but it made it tough to hear someone next to me trying to say something.
Ironically, I found it useless in holding my older Smith sunglasses. I had to add some "fins" with Sugru to make a ledge and hold the sunglasses securely in place.
I finally had a crash, while gravel riding - and landed in the mud and weeds on the side of the road. Got back up and started riding, no blood no torn clothes and I thought "no big deal." Next thing I know it's an hour later and I have no idea what road I'm on, when I turned on my lights, and no recollection of conversations with riding partners over that past hour. So yeah, I had a concussion and a splitting headache for 6 days.
My replacement helmet was not a Smith.
