Smith Route With MIPS

Best For: All-Day Treks

With a click-wheel tensioner that pulls the helmet snug against your head without creating pressure points, the Route is among the most comfortable helmets we tested. It's also one of the coolest: Deep internal airflow channels keep the breeze moving, and the thin layers of internal padding have silver fibers that fight odor-producing bacteria. A honeycomb material reinforces key areas above the temples for safety and breathability. [$150 at Backcountry]
