Smith Maze Reviews:


My measurement: 58cm head size. I have size M and it fits comfortably, even with a beanie or Balaclava underneath. I also wear my goggle band (Electric EG2) underneath and there's enough room. I switched over from POC because of the sizing and comfort of the Maze even though my POC's are very high quality, indestructible, and I liked my look; I have the receptor bug adjustable (M/L) and fornix(M/L) and I was always between the M/L (fit too snug, couldn't wear much underneath) and XL/XXL sizes ( way too much room, really big) and I could never get the fit I wanted. The Maze feels lighter than the POC receptor bug and the padding on the inside is more comfortable. The Maze also feels like it's above your ear more when the ear pads are out which I liked a lot. I've never noticed overheating in the Maze, so the venting must be doing it's job. The fleece on the ear pieces is pretty plush. The elastic band that allows for the comfortable fit could be a little more burly, I'm a little worried about it surviving (not getting stretched out) more than a few seasons. I haven't checked if Smith offers band replacements, that may be worthwhile to check into.
With the lightweight feel and shape and most of all the comfort, I am very fond of this helmet and I hope Smith doesn't change it after finally finding my perfect fit.

My favorite aspect of this helmet is how light it was, which when it first came out was a big deal. Nowadays, there's some competitors out there. I've gone through 2 versions - white and matte black and both fit great and did the job well. Comfort all around, from the chinstrap and earpads to the shape and fit with my (Anon) goggles. I wouldn't worry too much about the limited ventilation, as I rarely overheated in this helmet. Smith is putting out some steezy graphics these days too...My only point deductions were because it did give me a little bit of an "egg head" appearance, but much less than most helmets. Thats just my own darn fault though.

Mark Rosenberg at on 12/02/2013

I just picked this helmet up and have used it a few times. I wear the smith I/OX goggles and they fit perfectly flush with this helmet and look really good. I wear a balaclava under the helmet for extra warmth and so wind does not bother be down my neck, with the balaclava and the helmet I haven't even been close to being cold and I was riding in about 5 degree F weather. The helmet is super comfortable and is super lightweight so you don't really even notice it on your head when riding like a lot of other helmets. I would recommend this helmet to anyone!

Good helmet for the price

I bought this helmet for a ski trip I went on for New Years. This is the first ski helmet I've bought so I didn't want to get a really expensive one. I tried on almost all of the ski helmets at my local REI store and this was the one that fit the best. It kept my head warm while skiing and it was comfortable. My only problem was that my ski goggles would fall out of the back harness and would fall to the ground when I placed them on top of the helmet. Other than that little issue this helmet works great.

This is by far the lightest and most comfortable helmet I have owned. I owned various other helmets in the past Red Muntiny, Bern Watts, Baker, Vantage and Giro G10. The best features are the simplicity and light weightness of this helmet. It feels as if you are not even wearing anything on your head. The helmet fits pretty nicely with my Smith IO and Prodigy goggles.

For years I've had the Smith Holt helmet, and this year I decided to finally try out the Maze because I read that it's lighter. So far I love it. Not nearly as heavy on, but I still feel like it will protect my brains nicely. Added bonus is that the padding comes with a built in method for holding a wireless sound system.

Jenn W at on 11/27/2013

Honestly, I forget this helmet is on my head some times, this has to be one of the lightest helmets on the market. I have a pretty big head, so I ordered a Large and it fits really well and does not sit up too high. I use the Oakley Airbrake goggles with this and have not been caught with a gap yet.

Ben Fleming at on 01/25/2014

i have been through countless helmets over the years, hated every single one of them. To me i thought they made me look bad, feel weird, and they just bothered me. The smith maze is light, stylish, and cheap. I love this helmet and recommend it to all.

Cha6025941 at on 12/05/2013

My friend and good touring partner has used the maze for years. I finally switched from the vantage to the maze last season and i'm stoked on it. Very light on the head and in the pack. Cool shape as well, doesn't look too dorky. Surprisingly good airflow.

Dan Gates at on 11/26/2013

I bought this helmet last year and love it! I have the skullcandy speakers and a bluetooth adapter which makes this thing ROCK! The smith I/O goggles are a perfect fit. I have done a lot of bushwacking with this helmet and is has held up nicely.
