Smith is known for its optics, but the American mountain bike brand also produces a range of helmets, including the Convoy which we rate amongst one of the best mountain bike helmet under $100.
The Smith Convoy MIPS is a trail helmet, combining the additional coverage and crash energy dissipation you would expect from a premium mountain bike safety product.
Balancing airflow with more helmet structure can be challenging. Smith’s designers achieve this by creating a helmet with 20 fixed vent ports to keep you cool when cranking up a steep climb on a hot day.
Beyond the ventilation comfort, Smith’s Convoy also offers robust crash protection. The helmet is certified for various standards: CPSC, CE EN 1078, and AS/NZS2063.
One of the features that help the Convoy achieve its credible safety rating is the presence of a MIPS liner. The Swedish slip-plane liner helps reduce possible damage from angular impacts on the brain. For many trail riders, MIPS has become a non-negotiable part of harmonized helmet safety.

Cool on warm rides and safe if you crash at an awkward angle, the Smith Convoy integrates easily with the best mountain bike sunglasses. This is hardly surprising, considering Smith’s vast experience in riding sunglasses and goggles.
The AirEvac feature works a treat with Smith eyewear to deliver fog-free lenses, even if you transition from cold valley floor to sunny slope, in only a few hundred feet or riding.
Fit comfort can make or break a helmet’s usability, and to ensure the broadest ergonomic applicability, the Smith Convoy has VaporFit. This dial adjustment system has a generous 270-degrees of tension, easily modulated by a dial, to ensure the Convoy is never too tight – or loose – on your head.
Available in five colors to match your frame or riding gear, Smith’s Convoy MIPS weighs in at 300g. This trail helmet covers four sizes: small, medium, large and extra-large.
