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 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'll admit it. I've been known to compromise on some gear in order to achieve the same goal and to save a few bucks. Premium helmets cost a grip of cash, and your discretionary income varies on a lot of things. I get it. You'll get no judgment from me. Shoei is a premium helmet that commands premium pricing. What you get in return for those hard earned dollars is a fit and finish that is unparalleled (except for Arai perhaps), ventilation that works, and a helmet that is built to last. My Shoei NeoTec is entering its 7th year of service and is as solid as the day I bought it. After a couple of months and a thousand miles in the Hornet X2, I have no doubt that this helmet will stand the test of time. It is very similar to the NeoTec and other helmets in the Shoei line in fit, finish, and function. It just works. Your nugget is arguably the most important thing you protect while riding. If you have the means to get one, it'll be worth every penny should you ever have to put it to the test. If you don't, the comfort and build quality alone will be enough to warrant the price of entry.Read All Reviews

Super comfy, not too noisy, fits like a dream after a ride or two. Only 4 stars is because I had to cut some of the insert out for my Cardo speakers because they were pressing against my ears. Cut out from the factory would've made this 5 stars.Read All Reviews
