Last year, I reviewed the Smith Overtake helmet and at the time I had good things to say about it. Now more than a year later, I can say nothing has changed. I love it every bit as much now as I did then. After thousands of miles, I ordered a new set of pads for it, but it’s a piece of kit I never feel like I was wrong about.
Turns out Smith has put together something special for the Olympics, and they’ve actually made the Overtake – as well as some of their other products – even more amazing. They have partnered with Brazilian artists Bicicleta Sem Freio to graphically revamp the Overtake road bike helmet, PivLockTM Arena Max interchangeable performance sunglasses, and the Lowdown lifestyle sunglasses with the signature psychedelic and vibrant style of the famed artist collective. It’s a really beautiful collection of great products, but it’s also a limited edition, so you’ll probably want to hurry when it debuts August 6th at smithoptics.com.
