Best in Warmth

See all pictures

The Quantum is one of the most tediously engineered helmets on the market, built with the needs of the 50+ day a seasoned skier in mind. Smith is another huge name in the industry, and the Quantum integrates just about every safety feature available across their snow line.

It’s a great helmet for the right skier. There’s certainly nothing wrong with it, and its extensive list of safety features. But, it does weigh a lot. And clocking in somewhere around $300, it’s definitely one of the most expensive helmets in this style.

The foundation is a quality hybrid molded shell, reinforced with rigid polymers at common impact points. The interior is reinforced by Smith’s Aerocore tech, plates of force-dampening tubes that have the additional perk of increasing airflow.

The build is topped with an impressive 22 slide-adjustable vents, to dissipate the heat that its admittedly considerable bulk is sure to accumulate.
