Model/Year: 2016 Lime Green

Pros: Lightweight, breathable, many colorways, range of fit adjustments, built-in GoPro mount

Cons: None that I've found yet

Recommendation: A great XC/trail helmet that's light and quite breathable. The Koroyd fabric encourages airflow, and the threaded GoPro mount (much cleaner than using velcro) is a nice touch.

Model/Year: Neon Orange 2014

Pros: Comfortable, stays cool, looks awesome, smooth and simple adjustability, solid mount for headlamp/gopro

Cons: The sunglasses-holding feature does not really work for me, but I own Oakley Flak Jackets, not Smith sunglasses.

Recommendation: I hope they keep making this helmet for a while because I will probably buy it again when it comes time to retire my current one.

Model/Year: Forefront

Pros: Lightweight
Airflow
Fit
Built in mount for GoPro or headlamp
Works with glasses

Cons: Mounting hardware for GoPro or headlamp is not included. Smith sells it separately for an additional $15! This should be included with the helmet for $220.

Recommendation: I have owned several different MTB specific helmets, but this one takes the cake with it's functionality. Highly recommended.
