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.

Very good and functional helmet. Most helmets are tight on my forehead (oval head) but this is very comfortable. The sun visor is nice to have. Room for earplugs/earbuds. Snug on the cheekbones but not annoying. Field of view is good. The optics is also very good. My only complaint is the distortion thru the lens looking down at the speedo/gps, the curves cause some distortion, learned to just tip head down a bit to view clearly. Weight is acceptable. Sound is also acceptable. Ventilation is very good and the lens doesn't fog excessively. Would like to have a larger chin curtain for cold weather.Read All Reviews

This helmet is one of the lightest weight helmets on the market, and also the venting system has really good air flow. Two features that make the helmet ideal for long warm days on the trail. I had an older model, and I think the newer ones run a little smaller and tighter.Read All Reviews
