From the tracks to the trails and across the streets in between, Bell has always been trusted to protect riders. In 1954, Bell Helmets founder Roy Richter witnessed first-hand the dangers associated with racing. A racer himself, Richter saw the need for some extra protection, and created his first helmet – the “500.” Business expanded from there, and the company quickly took the head-seat at the table for their innovative and revolutionary look at helmet manufacturing. With their unique perspective and insight into the industry, Bell has continued to develop the products that the riders of today need.
Since its beginning, Bell Helmets has always been focused on how to best protect riders of all ages, sizes, and riding preferences. Their helmets address every aspect of the ride – protection, comfort, and performance. One never has to come at the expense of the other, making Bell’s helmets the most well-rounded and inclusive helmets on the market. Their effective designs, intuitive technologies, and industry-leading construction have set the standard for the rest of the industry to match. All Bell Helmets come standard with MIPS and DOT and ECE certification, along with durable shells, moisture-wicking liners, and varying internal safety features. Bell Helmets are accessible to varying price points and budgets, making the high-performing helmets affordable for all riders.
Today, Bell Helmets still has the same focus and aspirations. The company remains true to its roots while climbing the ladder of innovation. Their helmets are engineered in the name of safety, for all riders of all riding styles. They’re tried-and-true because they’ve been around long enough to be put through every test and ride. Rider owned and rider trusted, Bell is the leading name in the game when it comes to helmet safety, comfort, and performance.

I LOVE THIS HELMET! no but seriously... I'm an old fart that hasn't been on a motorcycle in decades. Why I remember way back when... Oh sorry about that. The features on the newer helmets are great, I wear glasses so I love the flip down sunscreen, means I don't have to wear sunglasses. The visor and front opening offer more than adequate side vision and the ventilation is fully adjustable. Having a removable liner that's cleanable is a huge plus. I recall owning one or two older really "funky" smelling helmets in my day. Pricing was only a minor concern, it's my noggin after all. But for a DOT certified helmet with all these features? The AFX FX-41 Dual Sport Helmet is hard to beatRead All Reviews

Bell has been making helmets longer than most gear companies have been around, let alone began making helmets. Reliability, extreme attention to detail, great fit. I love the TLD McGrath/Monster design on matte black, truly an eye catching piece of work.Read All Reviews

My 4 year old has a giant head. Fly adult smalls are the best fit after youth large in any brand.Read All Reviews

Fantastic helmet. This helmet is light. I bought an XL size and it was noticeably lighter than every helmet I've owned including my Arai and Shoei helmets. It fits excellent. I wish it had a skid plate on the top for woods riding. My first ride with it scuffed it up pretty bad with branches hitting it.Read All Reviews
