Why We Like The Smith Persist MIPS Helmet
When it comes to road riding, we're not taking any chances, and that's why we turn to the Smith Persist MIPS Helmet when we head out the door.

Saved my brain
I was in a crash a week ago and my helmet saved me from serious injury. I still don’t remember parts of the incident, but without the helmet, I’m sure I would have been a lot worse off.
