        Overall

        Extremely comfortable helmet, super light weight and the venting is well thought out.

        Performance

        Biggest performance feature on this is the venting, which is top notch. Two separate vent zones with 3 stage opening on each makes it really easy to fine tune the amount of air getting to your head. Once in the vents air flows nice and free through the inner channels to keep you cool.

        Design

        Overall design is a good balance of smooth and aggressive. The venting stands out on top a little, but not excessive. The shape is quite low profile to keep the bobble head effect down, and fits well under a hood for the ultra cold days. The brim is nice to keep some brush off your face, but small enough that you can still put up your goggles when you want. The fit is great with the Smith I/O goggles, as expected, and quite good with most other brands of helmet compatible goggles.

        I have the Black on Black version, but there are a ton of different patterns and colours if you want your head to stand out a bit more.

        Fit

        The adjustable fit on the Vantage means that it works on a pretty wide range of head shapes. Personally I haven't been a Smith shaped head until this new system, but now it fits great.

        Adjustment is easy with a finger pinch of the slider at the back of the head. Once adjusted it says put feels solid.

        Durability

        The shell seems quite durable and scratch proof. This is not a true multi impact helmet, but I trust it to take a few bangs and bruises before needing to be replaced.
