Smith have been developing winter sports helmets for many years, they are now stepping into the cycling helmet game with the tech advanced Forefront Bike Helmet. Most cycling helmets donīt have nothing truly innovative to offer safety wise, they mostly focus on weight, number of vents, and aerodynamic characteristics. Smith are now poised to disrupt the bike helmet industry with the use of Koroyd, a patented tubular core material that is better at absorbing impact than most common materials used. The innovative material also provides great ventilation. The helmet also features an adjustable fit system, and camera/light mounts. The new Smith bike helmet line should be available in Spring 2014. via
