Smith Evolve Helmets

Smith's Evolve helmets utilize Evolve X-Static, a full feature X-Static fabric that maintains its high level of performance while being ecologically friendly by using sustainable and renewable raw materials. Evolve X-Static is initially made by blending up to 50% recycled silver with other recycled materials to create a performance fabric that is 3.7% X-Static and 96.3% recycled polyester. Fabrics are then recycled at the end of their lifecycle to recover the silver content for further use. Evolve X-Static has earned the Oeko-Tex Standard 1000 accreditation, which certifies that they support human ecology through biocompatibility and the absence of harmful substances in the manufacturing process. Plus all Evolve product packaging has been minimized and made from recycled and recyclable post-consumer products, is FSC certified, and uses vegetable based inks.

The Evolve helmet line includes the Variant Brim, Variant, and Maze, the world's lightest certified snow helmet (shown above).
