Smith Gage 2013 - 2012 Review by The Good Ride

The Smith Gage was worn by us a lot this demo season.  We liked the look, the mini brim, the weight and the all-around feel to it.  If you like the idea of the Maze but want a brim and don’t mind a little extra weight you might like the Gage.

Great helmet especially for the money. Venting is minimal but works. On the hot days with the ear pads out its stays really cool. The fit system is a little crude (simple elastic band attached with thin plastic) but it works. The only complaint is that when you tilt your head back the fit system presses on the base of your neck. Overall The helmet is really comfortable to me.

I went for the junior model because I wanted the neon green color. The junior medium is pretty much the same dimensions as the adult medium. There is only 1cm difference on the top end of the spectrum. This seams to be standard for all Smith helmets. Only problem is that the junior helms don't have a zip on the ear pads so you cant insert headphones. I am riding with earbuds now and they get uncomfortable after a while.

Even though I find this helmet comfortable it doesn't necessarily mean everyone will find it comfortable. I would suggest trying on every helmet you can get you hands on. Everyone's head has a unique shape and all of these companies develop their own shapes and size templates. You really want to find for the helmet that fits your specific shape the best. I have had uncomfortable helmets in the past and it really wares on you.
