A question for anyone who sells or is knowledgeable about Smith helmets: is there any good reason to choose one over the other? Thoughts?
I own a Smith Vantage (which I bought on sale) and like it. Today, I loaned it to my wife, who finally decided she wants a helmet. We went in to the shop, discovered Smith is the right fit for her, but there are at least four models, ranging from $100 - $220, which would all fit her.
I get that more money = more vents, and perhaps better materials, but there must be a "sweet spot" somewhere in the line.
Aspect = $100
Camber = $130
Sequel = $160
Vantage = $220 (!).
All are certified and all fit. Does anyone have any particular advice for one model over another? She'll be skiing c.15 days/season, so value is relevant.
