Smith Optics is releasing their Forefront Bike Helmet designed for mountain bike, free ride, and trail riding. The Forefront Bike Helmet is an amazing new bike helmet and is being released at Interbike this year.
We were able to have an interview with the Director of Development at Smith Optics about their new Forefront bike helmet.
Here is some information about their bike from their website (http://www.smithoptics.com/forefront/)
The all-new FOREFRONT defines Smith’s innovation platform and serves as the ‘go to’ helmet for all-mountain riders. Created to provide all-mountain protection with road-race weight, the Aerocore™ construction of the FOREFRONT allows riders ventilated protection as never before seen in a bicycle helmet. With up to a 30% improvement over standard EPS impact properties, the patented tubular core structure of the Koroyd® material combines with EPS to create a system of materials known as Aerocore™ designed to surpass current standards at low and high speeds. Aerocore™ construction allows for ventilated protection, reduced weight, and reduced volume.
Targeting a full production weight of 285g, the FOREFRONT helmet features Smith’s new VaporFit™ adjustable fit system, integrated camera and light mounting area, and an additional helmet goggle retention strap. Based off of Smith’s proven head form and dedicated investment of three unique sets of tooling, three adult helmet sizes are available to accommodate a variety of fits while 10 progressive color options offer a range of style choices.
