Smith Helmet Retention: 2006 - Tres Design
This was a redesign of our ZipTite product to better suit the Snowboarding industry. Instead of using a geared knob, we just attached a slider to one of the arms and hid the gearing all inside the unit. We tried to make it as simple and foolproof as possible, with the possibility of snow and ice getting impacted into the mechanism. This is probably as simple as you can make this type of retention system without radically altering the mechanism.
