Why We Like The Ignite MIPS Helmet

Finding the right aero helmet can be a challenge. There are a number of boxes that can be tricky to check, firstly, aerodynamics, then breathability, comfort, fit, and style. The first few may be easy to tick, but many aero helmets are a bit lacking when it comes to the aesthetic department, and result in you resembling a bobblehead or cartoon character. In spite of the challenge in the design department, Smith has pushed beyond the com1petition to deliver a helmet that offers protection, aerodynamics, ventilation, and it looks damn good too, with the Ignite MIPS Helmet. The Ignite is built with Smith's signature Aerocore in-mold construction, combing a hard polycarbonate shell with EPS foam, and Koroyd material that keeps ventilation a priority, while adding something to the protection game with a honeycomb structure.

5 stars road helmet

Fits really well to my Asian head contours. Padding is just right, provides the right comfort with minimal weight. Adjustment is top notch as it really fits to my head just snugly. Awesome built!

Great Helmet

The Ignite is a great helmet. The shape and fit of the helmet works well with my headshape. A key feature for me is the integration of the helmet with Smith's sunglasses. Being able to stow glasses away in the vents and having confidence that they then won't fall out is a huge win in my book. I went through many combinations and returns before finding the Smith combination of helmet and glasses. My hope is that all future designs for both helmet and glasses have this key integration in mind. I'm glad that I came up on the Smith brand.

This helmet saved my life… Thank you Smith Sports Optics!

What can I say or how do I even begin… As I am writing this review to you Smith Sports Optics on this 3rd week from my accident I was struck from behind by a motorist traveling at 45+mph in the bike-lane that didn’t see me because he was negligently on his mobile phone… Currently I’m healing/recovering from my injuries of a acetabular fracture, fractured right clavicle & major muscle tears to my left tricep… Carbon Road Bike is completely totalled, Smith helmet is completely totalled but one thing, it saved my life! I’ve logged thousands of miles with this helmet prior to this incident and I have had no gripes or complaints but this day I felt it was worthy enough to leave a review and to anyone that reads this, please just wear a helmet…

Saved my life

I am still in the hospital but I can’t stop thinking about where I would be and in what condition if I didn’t have my recently bought Smith Ignite on me during my crash. I was doing my regular TRI workout session early morning week day on the suburban roads with light traffic …ended up not hitting a van but going at 22mph down the hill but went head first and flipped instead after hitting the front break hard in the last chance attempt. Landed on asphalt with my head then shoulder then my back. I remember vividly the helmet’s contact with the surface. Didn’t loose my consciousness and was fully aware what a serious situation I just found myself in. The rescue was quick ended up in hospital SICU with fractures on my lower back spine, broken collar bone and ankle…NO HEAD OR NECK INJURY! While shopping for helmet SAFETY was my priority.. I picked the right one! Thank you Smith Optics.
