Light, Aero, Safe, and Unique.

Smith continues their foray into the cycling world with the Overtake MIPS road helmet. It features the same Aerocore™ technology as their innovate Forefront all-mountain helmet, using thermally-welded Koroyd® co-polymer tubes to create a lightweight, highly-breathable, protective matrix. Because of the strength of this inner piece, the outer EPS shell can have more strategically placed vents to allow all those tubes to move air off your head as effectively as possible. Not only this, but the Aerocore™ construction has also permitted the helmet to be aerodynamically shaped, having tested in the tunnel to have less Wind Averaged Drag than some of the popular “aero” road helmets on the market. This MIPS version includes cutting edge multi-directional impact protection to help reduce rotational forces on the head during real-world impacts.

Externally, Smith has designed built-in sunglass storage into its cosmetics so that you can easily keep them on the front or back of the helmet when you're not wearing them. The brow of the helmet has been made to have a taller field-of-view than its competitors so you don't have to crane your neck when you're riding in the drops, and the helmet rests on a new X-Static reactive-cooling liner attached to Smith's VaporFit™ adjustable fit system to ensure a personalized and secure fit.

Claimed weight: 250 g.

Available in multiple colorways.


  • Small: 51 - 55 cm
  • Medium: 55 - 59 cm

First helmet I''ve owned that stays in place without being too low on the forehead

I've had helmets from Giro, Bell, Kask, Catlike, and Lazer, and they'd always end up pushing my sunglasses down and had to constantly be repositioned. The Smith Overtake is the first helmet I've owned that didn't have this problem. It's very comfortable and I like the way it looks. Ventilation may be a bit slightly lacking compared to some of the more open high-end helmets, but I've worn it in 100 degree heat without a problem.

Most comfortable helmet I've owned.

Light and comfortable. Very adjustable fit - accommodates winter cap. Seems sturdy and stable. Use it for road riding and feel safer because of the high visibility orange color. The one negative so far is that because of the koroyd inner shell I haven't found a good way to attach my safe zone mirror.

Great helmet!!!

Great helmet and even better customer service. Do yourself a favor and get a MIPS equipped helmet... Do the research and realize that you only have one head... protect it. The folks at western bikeworks honestly have the BEST customer service around. They will give you info regarding the products and on top of that they price match and do not charge sales tax. Cant beat that. I am a customer for life.

I have not yet tried it in hot weather so I don't know how cool it will be. I'm a road cyclist. Fits well, is comfortable, and easily adjusted.

Best Helmet on the Market
by PappyDelaware

I have had many road helmets over the years and I will say this is the best helmet to date. It is very aero and has a lot of ventilation for those hot steamy summer days. The fit is great and the forward view is unobstructed like many of Smiths rival competition. The mesh screen should be on all helmets, it keeps the bugsbees out yet does not obstruct airflow. Smith has hit a home run with this helmet!

My 1st road helmet, all ways used MTB helmets before this. I like the fit, weight& looks of it. After my friend crashed and got a concussion, with a standard helmet, I got the Smith mips& glad I did. Seems to cut through the air, don't ever want to crash, but if I do this helmet will be on my head.
