Smith’s high end helmets are known for having arguably the lowest profile helmets in the industry. However the Holt does not. It’s just average in terms of reducing the bubble head look. It does have a nice twist on a traditional skate style helmet. It’s also rather heavy compared to it’s competitors. Despite the size and weight it does have almost all the bells and whistles that it’s higher priced relatives have. It has an adjustable vent, a goggle vent and a brim to keep snow out of the top part of the goggle vent. If you are looking for good venting and want to save some cash then the Holt might be a good choice.
