Why We Like The Network MIPS Helmet

We live for the all-day rides, carving our way up dramatic canyons, cruising through miles of wild vineyards, and along coastal highways — but admittedly, we're not always so lucky to have the time. Often times we're limited to our daily commute to get in the weekday miles, and crave equipment that is versatile enough to bounce back and forth from one to the other. Designers at Smith seem to have received our asks, and answered thoroughly with the Smith Network MIPS Helmet. All new for 2018, the Network Helmet finds an uncanny balance of style, versatility, and performance, packing in MIPS and Koroyd technology to protect, with modern design and ventilation to keep you looking, and feeling cool, whether on your commute or your all-day epic.


Smith's Koroyd technology is found in the funny looking layer of honeycomb tubes that run beneath the outer shell and more traditional EPS foam throughout the helmet. It's made of thousands of tiny, extruded co-polymer tubes that absorb impact but have a fenestrated surface that allows for a level of breathability impossible to achieve with solid EPS foam while absorbing a claimed 30% more energy. Plus, it's pretty cool looking, especially in Smith's mix of contrasting and complementary color schemes.

It might of saved my life or concussion

I’ve always preferred Smith Helmets. I just recently had a bike accident on my road bike. I was too fast on a turn and crashed into the woods. I came out with a dented helmet and no concussion. I think MIPs helped to avoid the concussion

Not A Safe Helmet

I'm not very impressed with this helmet. My biggest concern is that the chin strap doesn't stay tight. It will loosen up over the course of about two hours. So, the chin strap is always loose. I don't feel like that would be very good in the case of an accident. The adjustment tabs on the side also come loose. Not as frequently as the chin strap, but they do tend to open themselves up every couple of days, which is very annoying. Also, the rear ratchet to tighten the helmet around the head is very clunky. By far, it is the most clunky of any helmet I've ever owned. The air flow is okay, not great. The slots in the helmet are quite narrow. They make it really hard to itch a scratch on your head if you have one, requiring you to stop and remove the helmet. I like the color and the design, it just doesn't feel very safe. I'm on a mult-year adventure trip, so I will keep the helmet for now, but I will have my eye open for another helmet when I have the budget for it.

Network Mips

Very good ventilation and comfortable. Very difficult to install a light at the back

Sunglasses issue

I’ve ridden 3 networks now for about 5 years without issue but my recent one will not hold onto sunglasses for the life of it. Disappointed in this feature of an otherwise great helmet

Great style and color selection.

Great style and color selection. Would welcome options for additional padding, especially on top. Any suggestions? (I'm a senior male citizen with thinning hair.)

Best all around helmet!

This is my second of these helmets. I wear it on road and gravel rides. I can’t say enough good things about this helmet. It’s comfortable, matches any sunglasses you want to wear, and it’s protective. This is my second one because my previous one saved my noggin on a gravel ride where I got a little fast into a corner. Smashed myself into a tree at high speed, seperated my shoulder, and caved my helmet in. Kept my head safe from the impact. When I was able to get back on the bike I was more than happy to get another one of these to keep me safe out there.

Decent but with flaws

Generally happy with the look and comfort of the helmet. The way the adjustable straps are designed tends to make them want to roll over in front of or behind my ears rather than laying flat, which is annoying and no amount of adjusting has fixed, and for some reason the chin strap length keeps slipping out. The "Koroyd" honeycomb panels also interfere with my stowing sunglasses in the vents, making them prone to slipping or falling out entirely with even gentle head movements - issue is consistent with sunnies from POC, Roka, Tifosi.

The Networks MIPS is a Horrible Helmet

Legitimately dangerous. Genuinely terrible product. Shattered in a week. Posting a review for 4th time to demonstrate they delete negative reviews and sending to the powers that be.
