Do only Smith helmets fit Smith I/Os?

Hi

Are Smith helmets the only ones that get a good fit with I/Os? I have the goggles and want to pick up a helmet. I like the Maze, feels very light but the padding doesn't seem too protective...

What are peoples opinions of the whole Smith lineup? Anything to avoid or recommend would be great.

Also, what are peoples opinions of the audio system Smith uses? I have no experience in these things, just want something to play my tunes.

Thanks

Smith is the most solid goggle manufacturer out there from top to bottom imo. I like some other companies too, but you just can't go wrong with Smith.

As far as the helmet fit goes. Not sure. I use my Smith turbo fan Phenoms with a Pro-Tech helmet and the fit seems to be good enough. Bring your goggles to the shop and try them on with the helmet.

I have the I/O's with the R.E.D. Trace helmet and fit well. Granted I had Anon goggles with the trace helmet and that fit better but this combination fits and does the job. You just have to try the goggles and helmet on together to see if they will work together.

I'm not really that impressed with the Smith helmets. I looked at one that sold for $150 in a local snowboarding shop and there was almost no padding to protect the back of the head. So I went with a Giro G9 instead. However I do have a pair of Smith goggles that I like.
