A new take on road helmets.
You've respected Smith goggles and helmets since you were a know-it-all grom mobbing around your local mountain on skis or a board, and the brand's dependable gear has protected you from more than a few epic crashes over the years. With its passion for the outdoors, it's no surprise that Smith's been steadily expanding into the world of bike, and the Overtake Helmet represents its first foray onto the weight-conscious road cycling scene. An admirable blend of safety and comfort make the Overtake well worth your time and investment—after all, you don't bounce back as quickly as you did in the old days.
The Overtake doesn't look like your typical road helmet, and part of that is due to Smith's use of Koroyd, a lightweight, attention-grabbing material that shares a strong resemblance to honeycomb. After finding Koroyd to be significantly more breathable than EPS foam, Smith used it to improve the Overtake's airflow and structural integrity with its ability to absorb almost 30% more impact in crashes than EPS.
In addition to safety, Smith was also concerned with aerodynamics, and after expert opinions and extensive wind tunnel testing, the company settled on a design it was satisfied with for the Overtake, bringing it on par with other top-tier road helmets from more traditional cycling brands. The Overtake also displays the same user-friendly design Smith products are known for, with Smith's VaporFit adjustment system allowing you to dial in the right fit quickly pre-ride or out on the roads.
