The promise of any great helmet is that you'll forget you have it on. Bell engineers undertook that task by keeping the Volt helme...t light and making sure it was ventilated. At 320g, it's one of the lightest out there. The Volt's 22 vents direct air into the helmet, over the head and out the back to keep airflow constant, just like riding sans bucket. The carbon fiber Fusion In-Mold Microshell adds carbon fiber strength to the internally reinforced EPS foam for greater durability. Cam-lock Levers make for quick strap adjustment. None of this matters if the helmet doesn't fit. Those who have a round head shape have always fared well with Bell helmets, as opposed to the more oval-fitting Giros. The addition of the TAG Fit System means riders can adjust the helmets fit around the Occipital Lobe (that bump at the back of your head) both in width and height for a more conforming fit. And if you've ever picked up your helmet and thought, What's that smell? you'll appreciate the X-Static Padding which combines a quick-dry material with an anti-microbial coating. Bell's most impressive achievement may be the always-right graphics package. The Bell Volt is available in 3 sizes, includes the adjustable and removable VPV Visor (and plugs, should you choose to ride without) and comes in a number of stunning finishes. Choose from Black/Carbon, Blue/White, Matte Blue/Black, Red/White, or Silver/White. Read More

On a certain level, the only difference between a road race and a cross-country mountain bike race is the dirt below the tires -- ...the basic idea is still to push your cardiovascular limit as much as possible, at the right time, to cross the line first. For that reason, the Bell Event XC Helmet is identical to the standard Event road helmet, with the exception of a repositionable visor attached to it to block out the sun, push aside branches, and fend off a bit of mud and dirt that may rain down after being kicked up by the rider in front of you. The Event helmet is made of a lightweight foam with an In-Mold polycarbonate shell, a unified structural piece that absorbs shock and protects your head better than simple joint molding, as you'll find on most less-expensive helmets. The Event uses Bell's TAG (Twin Axis Gear) fit system so you can dial in the right fit along two different adjustment points: the diameter of the retention system snd its position in the helmet, so you can adjust the helmet to your head and not have it sit tilted too far forward or backward. The Overbrow ventilation system helps pull cool air into the front of the helmet and push warm air out the back, keeping heads comfortable, even on hot days. Read More

The Bell Stoker helmet was already one of our favorites, for its slick design, low weight, low price, and great breathability. Add... in the MIPS safety system, and it creates the Bell Stoker MIPS-Equipped Helmet, and it's just that much better. The MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) structure integrates easily into the Stoker's bones. MIPS is essentially the separation of the EPS foam shell from the retention system (the part that grabs your head) via a semi-floating suspension system, so that when the shell absorbs an impact, or two, or four, in a crash, it doesn't transfer that energy directly into the skull. Instead, forces are isolated, saving your head and neck from undo impacts. Developed in Scandinavia more than 10 years ago, the MIPS system has been continually revised and applied to an ever-growing number of helmets in different sports, and it's been credited with saving countless noggins from more serious injury. Driving it all to greatness is the fact that we're already stoked on the Stoker. Bell's placement of four brow ports and thirteen vents is more than adequate enough to cool, while an adjustable visor embodies this lid's off-road intentions. Another defining feature is that the Stoker comes in four sizes -- the industry standard is three. This guarantees a proportional fit and better ergonomics from the simple, yet effective, SpeedDial adjustment system. Separating you from the Stoker's Fusion In-Mold Microshell are Coolmax pads that wick and quickly evaporate perspiration to keep things dry and comfortable. Read More

The manufacturer's perpetual weight race is well documented. From frames to every imaginable component, engineers and designers st...rive to chip away grams without disturbing the delicate balance with structural integrity. Luckily, there are industry standards like the CPSC, which the Bell Gage Helmet easily passes, to keep products honest. There's a multitude of helmet safety guidelines, but when it comes to bicycle use, the Consumer Product Safety Commission's high, cycling-specific standards has become the benchmark. And it's truly remarkable that today's helmets can pass those regulations, while still offering the ventilation, fit, and low weight that they do. Bell's secret to achieving this is its Fusion In-Mold Microshell. The Microshell is bonded to an EPS foam liner during manufacturing in order to create a stronger overall structure. Internal reinforcements allow Bell's designers to push the envelope of ventilation with numerous large intake and exhaust ports. Additionally, it also allows solid anchoring points for the two-way adjustable TAG fit system. The TAG Fit System means that riders can adjust the helmet around the occipital lobe (that bump at the back of your head) both in width and height for a conforming fit. Cam-lock levers make for quick strap adjustment, so that you can dial in the Gage when riding without hassle and forget that you have it on. Another key feature of the Gage is Bell's X-Static padding. It combines a quick-dry material with an anti-microbial coating in order to eliminate odor. The Bell Gage Helmet is available in the sizes Small, Medium, and Large and in the colors Black/red/white stripes, Matte BMC Limited Edition Team, Matte Black Swerve, Matte Black/orange/blue swerve, Matte Titanium Stripes, and White Stripes.

With the Star Pro Helmet's wind-tunnel proven ability to gain . 9 meters every 300 meters over its closest competitor, Bell obviou...sly doesn't have many options for improving it. In fact, it may only have one: adding a wind-shielding visor. By adding the magnetic, tinted Zeiss Shield to the Pro Star's refined, aerodynamic body and elements, Bell's engineers have made what may be the fastest cycling helmet on the planet. The Star Pro's Active Aero, which involves a switch and a slider, is the helmet's other aerodynamic-boosting feature. Sliding it open makes for more ventilation; sliding it shut blocks off the drag-creating vents at the helmet's front, presenting a unified front to the wind to take maximum advantage of the Star Pro's aerodynamic shaping. The Star Pro may be the only cycling helmet that literally has its own wind tunnel, as the Bell engineers built one for it to dial in the shape as much as possible. Even the straps are aerodynamic, incorporating Bell's new Cinch system to keep everything flat and unobtrusive while the FloatFit adjustment options ensure security. The Overbrow Ventilation design helps strike a balance between ventilation and aerodynamics courtesy of airflow channels running through the Star Pro's under belly. The brow provides a gap between helmet and forehead, which funnels air into the channels, which let it move unimpeded over your head and out the rear exhaust ports for efficient cooling. For climbs, you'll definitely want to supplement this with the Active Aero vents open, but it does a reasonable job keeping you cool with the vents closed when you're flying under the red kite with only a matter of seconds on the bunch. A helmet's aerodynamics and ventilation are nice, but it's important to bear in mind the reason why we're even discussing them. A helmet is protection first, aerodynamic second, and cool-looking third. (We do admit to sometimes inverting the second and third criteria. Happily, the Star Pro doesn't disappoint, ... Read More

Is there any accessory item that looks quite so pro as a proper time trial helmet? Nevertheless, none of us want to be so gauche a...s to wear one during inappropriate situations - like a criterium, for instance. But if you regularly race week-long stage races that feature tests against the clock, or are in fact a serious triathlete, there are few things that will give you such an advantage without overly pinching the pocketbook as a top notch aero helmet. The Bell Javelin Helmet will keep your head practically invisible to the wind, earning you precious seconds in your fight against the clock. With decades of making helmets for all sorts of activities behind them, Bell know what they're talking about when they come out with advancements on their previous models. For this latest iteration of their speed series, Bell have spent time in the wind tunnel and taken feedback from their multitude of sponsored cyclists to create this sleekly aero and well-ventilated design. But for anyone who has experience with aero helmets of the past, what will really impress you is just how darn comfortable the Javelin is. That's because they have taken into account that helmets need not only have an adjustable circumference, but also a different height in terms of where it rests on the occipital lobe. By designing their Twin Axes Gear (TAG) fit system, Bell has made it super easy to find the perfect way to make the Javelin suit just about any head's size around as well as up and down. Bell has taken a deep look at the details of an aero time trial helmet and sought ways to make them more user-friendly. The removable race shield for the eyes is a prime example. You can either have the shield on to protect your eyes, or if you prefer to wear your own glasses, they have designed the internal adjustment system to hit higher on the head to accommodate eyewear. The SeamFlex Ear Flaps have been given an amazingly flexible feel as well, to keep you comfortable and make your triathlon transitio... Read More

We're nerds for genuine innovation, which is why we're seriously digging the new Bell Super 2 Helmet. It packs cutting-edge featur...es into a sharp new design that's ready for a wide variety of riding styles. The first thing you'll notice about the Super 2 is its generous coverage. Its In-Mold polycarbonate shell is not only stronger and lighter than most on the market, it extends farther down the back of the head than nearly any competitor. That excellent coverage doesn't compromise weight, however, thanks to copious ventilation that serves to shave grams as much as promote airflow. The four Overbrow vents up front help enormously in this regard, too, keeping the wind moving over your dome seamless and consistently so you don't overheat. As we said, Bell innovation is proudly showcased in the Super 2, a helmet clearly ready for the modern age. Namely, it's got a break-away camera mount, so neither your camera nor your helmet get too banged up in a crash, and the GoggleGuide adjustable visor's screws are the break-away type, as well, meaning all is not lost if you bail. The Super 2's big party trick, though, is that it's compatible with Bell's 2R chin bar, a detachable protective structure that effectively turns the 2 into a full-face helmet. Ride lifts one day, and set out on an all-mountain epic the next. Whatever you're up for, the Super 2 is down. Read More

The TAG Fit System means that riders can adjust the helmet around the occipital lobe (that bump at the back of your head) both in width and height for a conforming fit. Cam-lock levers make for quick strap adjustment, so that you can dial in the Gage when riding without hassle and forget that you have it on. Another key feature of the Gage is Bell's X-Static padding. It combines a quick-dry material with an anti-microbial coating in order to eliminate odor. The Bell Gage Helmet is available in the sizes Small, Medium, and Large and in the colors Black/red/white stripes, Matte BMC Limited Edition Team, Matte Black Swerve, Matte Black/orange/blue swerve, Matte Titanium Stripes, and White Stripes.

The promise of any great helmet is that you'll forget you have it on. Bell engineers undertook that task by keeping the Volt helme...t light and making sure it was ventilated. At 320g, it's one of the lightest out there. The Volt's 22 vents direct air into the helmet, over the head and out the back to keep airflow constant, just like riding sans bucket. The carbon fiber Fusion In-Mold Microshell adds carbon fiber strength to the internally reinforced EPS foam for greater durability. Cam-lock Levers make for quick strap adjustment. None of this matters if the helmet doesn't fit. Those who have a round head shape have always fared well with Bell helmets, as opposed to the more oval-fitting Giros. The addition of the TAG Fit System means riders can adjust the helmets fit around the Occipital Lobe (that bump at the back of your head) both in width and height for a more conforming fit. And if you've ever picked up your helmet and thought, What's that smell? you'll appreciate the X-Static Padding which combines a quick-dry material with an anti-microbial coating. Bell's most impressive achievement may be the always-right graphics package. The Bell Volt is available in 3 sizes, includes the adjustable and removable VPV Visor (and plugs, should you choose to ride without) and comes in a number of stunning finishes. Choose from Black/Carbon, Blue/White, Matte Blue/Black, Red/White, or Silver/White. Read More

The Bell Stoker helmet was already one of our favorites, for its slick design, low weight, low price, and great breathability. Add... in the MIPS safety system, and it creates the Bell Stoker MIPS-Equipped Helmet, and it's just that much better. The MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) structure integrates easily into the Stoker's bones. MIPS is essentially the separation of the EPS foam shell from the retention system (the part that grabs your head) via a semi-floating suspension system, so that when the shell absorbs an impact, or two, or four, in a crash, it doesn't transfer that energy directly into the skull. Instead, forces are isolated, saving your head and neck from undo impacts. Developed in Scandinavia more than 10 years ago, the MIPS system has been continually revised and applied to an ever-growing number of helmets in different sports, and it's been credited with saving countless noggins from more serious injury. Driving it all to greatness is the fact that we're already stoked on the Stoker. Bell's placement of four brow ports and thirteen vents is more than adequate enough to cool, while an adjustable visor embodies this lid's off-road intentions. Another defining feature is that the Stoker comes in four sizes -- the industry standard is three. This guarantees a proportional fit and better ergonomics from the simple, yet effective, SpeedDial adjustment system. Separating you from the Stoker's Fusion In-Mold Microshell are Coolmax pads that wick and quickly evaporate perspiration to keep things dry and comfortable. Read More

The manufacturer's perpetual weight race is well documented. From frames to every imaginable component, engineers and designers st...rive to chip away grams without disturbing the delicate balance with structural integrity. Luckily, there are industry standards like the CPSC, which the Bell Gage Helmet easily passes, to keep products honest. There's a multitude of helmet safety guidelines, but when it comes to bicycle use, the Consumer Product Safety Commission's high, cycling-specific standards has become the benchmark. And it's truly remarkable that today's helmets can pass those regulations, while still offering the ventilation, fit, and low weight that they do. Bell's secret to achieving this is its Fusion In-Mold Microshell. The Microshell is bonded to an EPS foam liner during manufacturing in order to create a stronger overall structure. Internal reinforcements allow Bell's designers to push the envelope of ventilation with numerous large intake and exhaust ports. Additionally, it also allows solid anchoring points for the two-way adjustable TAG fit system. The TAG Fit System means that riders can adjust the helmet around the occipital lobe (that bump at the back of your head) both in width and height for a conforming fit.

We're nerds for genuine innovation, which is why we're seriously digging the new Bell Super 2 Helmet. It packs cutting-edge featur...es into a sharp new design that's ready for a wide variety of riding styles. The first thing you'll notice about the Super 2 is its generous coverage. Its In-Mold polycarbonate shell is not only stronger and lighter than most on the market, it extends farther down the back of the head than nearly any competitor. That excellent coverage doesn't compromise weight, however, thanks to copious ventilation that serves to shave grams as much as promote airflow. The four Overbrow vents up front help enormously in this regard, too, keeping the wind moving over your dome seamless and consistently so you don't overheat. As we said, Bell innovation is proudly showcased in the Super 2, a helmet clearly ready for the modern age. Namely, it's got a break-away camera mount, so neither your camera nor your helmet get too banged up in a crash, and the GoggleGuide adjustable visor's screws are the break-away type, as well, meaning all is not lost if you bail. The Super 2's big party trick, though, is that it's compatible with Bell's 2R chin bar, a detachable protective structure that effectively turns the 2 into a full-face helmet. Ride lifts one day, and set out on an all-mountain epic the next. Whatever you're up for, the Super 2 is down. Read More

With only 37 grams separating it from the more expensive, lightest helmet in Bell's line, the Volt RL Helmet is one of the best co...mbinations of low weight, ventilation, and price in the industry today. On top of all that, the Volt RL's body is also strong enough to, with the inclusion of a visor, serve as a mountain bike helmet. Unless sponsor obligations compel you to wear a different helmet, the Volt RL is hard to top. The helmet's low weight and trail-worthy durability stem from Bell's In-Mold construction method. In-Mold consists of melding the polycarbonate, outer shell with the EPS foam of the helmet's body in order to increase impact absorption and structural integrity. The technology appears in various iterations across the industry because it works, pure and simple, and when it comes to safety, the reassurance of such a broad consensus is also hard to top. The lightweight Kit webbing used for the Volt's straps resists absorbing sweat, so it stays cleaner and doesn't gain weight during the course of a long, hot day in the mountains. The sweat wants to evaporate. Let it. The straps' job of shrugging-off sweat is made easier by the StreamJet ventilation system. StreamJet uses 22 vents to feed refreshing air into a series of internal channels that shuttle relief across your head and then expel the heat through rear exhaust ports. The Volt RL also enjoys the inimitable fit of Bell's Twin Axis Gear (TAG) fit system. TAG uses a standard rear dial to adjust the circumference of the helmet's fit, and it also moves up and down in order to accommodate your occipital lobe. That's the bump we all have on the backs of our heads whose size and shape varies widely and that most other helmet manufacturers just pretend isn't there. Bell finishes the frame's arms with a soft rubber casing. The arms are also positioned a little higher than usual, which makes for an easier time getting your glasses on without dismounting as you roll over the summit of a climb to start the... Read More

If the protective EPS foam is the Bell Super 2 MIPS's heart, then the MIPS layer is its brain. MIPS involves connecting an interna...l layer to the helmet's shell with flexible bands. This lets the shell and the inner layer move independently of each other, with the shell sliding across the MIPS layer like a tectonic plate across the Earth's asthenosphere. This separate movement effectively dissipates impact forces by redirecting them away from your head, letting the helmet's brain protect your brain. Other than the inclusion of MIPS technology, the Super 2 MIPS is the same as the regular Super 2. Its In-Mold polycarbonate shell is not only stronger and lighter than most on the market, it extends farther down the back of the head than nearly any competitor. That excellent coverage doesn't compromise weight, however, thanks to copious ventilation that serves to shave grams as much as promote airflow. The four Overbrow vents up front help enormously in this regard, too, keeping the wind moving over your dome seamlessly and consistently so you don't overheat. The Super 2 also has some playful additions that recommend it for the modern enduro rider.

In a perfect world, we'd never sweat into our helmet's straps, regardless of the effort we're laying down. In a near-perfect world..., we'd remember to occasionally take our helmets into the shower after long, hot rides to rinse the sweat out. In the real world, the above doesn't apply. That's why we heartily applaud Bell's decision to include the webbing of the sweat-resistant Lightweight Kit in the minimalist Overdrive helmet. The real problem with sweat in a helmet is the unfortunate way that, over time, it can cause your chin strap to get stiff and smelly. Lightweight Kit's webbing avoids this by not soaking the sweat up, giving you more leniency between washings. It's also lightweight, which -- along with the Overdrive's minimalist design -- keeps the helmet within 45 grams of Bell's pro-level helmets. Its 19 body vents and Overbrow Ventilation also keep weight down, but we're more grateful for their cooling effect, which makes for less sweat that the Lightweight webbing has to dodge. The Twin Axis Gear (TAG) fit system is another feature that puts the Overdrive in the same category as Bell's pro helmets. TAG uses the standard dial to adjust the circumference of the helmet's fit, and it also moves up and down in order to accommodate differing occipital lobes. It's not that any cyclists' heads are less perfect than any others, it's just that we're not all shaped the same. TAG's customizability means it provides a nearly perfect fit in all cases. Bell finishes the frame's arms with a soft rubber casing. The arms are also positioned a little higher than usual, which makes for an easier time getting your glasses on without dismounting as you roll over the summit of a climb to start the descent.
