Smitten with Smith’s Overtake Helmet.
I transitioned in recent years from a Giro, to a Catlike, to a Smith Overtake with MIPS. The Smith is by far the lightest of all the helmets I’ve owned to date and can be fit to my head like a glove with the adjuster at the rear. You hardly know it’s there. It is the only helmet I’ve owned that does not cause my head to mildly ache after 80 miles on rough roads. The neon honey comb not only provides extra protection without compromising ventilation but keeps the bees out and sends out a jolt of visibility too! The bonus I don’t feel, unless I rotate the helmet on my head, is the MIPS technology which I will simply go with as there is nothing to argue when it comes to any promise of incremental brain protection. The bonus I do register is the lower profile look and the fact that it sits straight on my head so I can avoid the wrath of our Creative Director!

This helmet is not an option for me because I love to be able to scratch an itch. A few girls in my posse bought this helmet and ended up switching to POC because you can’t touch your head with the honeycomb shield that Smith uses. POC also has a much cooler vibe, in my op. And uses MIPs technology too.
