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.

Took a 20 foot freefall of a desert cliff. Was wearing this helmet. I walked away!! Lost a few minutes and took a few days to come fully back. But Im not dead. Bought another one. Like bells motto in the 70s said " If you have a 10 dollar head get a 10 dollar helmet. Best fit and protection for the price. Sweat buckets in the desert in the summer. Water replaces that,nothing replaces your brain!Read All Reviews

This has been my primary helmet since the end of 2019 - I rode the 80% desert/20% moto for a year and then switched to 90% moto/10% desert for a year. Took a hard fall last month - swapped out, high-sided, and slammed my whole right side into the ground. Hit my head really hard and was dazed for a bit, seeing stars etc but was able to get up, collect myself and the bike, and head home. Ended up with a Bennet fracture in my right thumb and some serious whiplash to my neck but NO head injuries. I attribute that to this VFX-EVO helmet. Been nursing the Bennet fracture off the bike for a month and sent the helmet in for SHOEI's free inspection service - it came back with a letter stating the EPS liner was damaged and they recommend replacing. Definitely worth the cost of the helmet knowing I can take that hard of an impact to the dome and have no head injury. The free inspection service is great for peace of mind and I do know someone who sent the helmet in for inspection and SHOEI confirmed it was still safe so I believe they are honest too.Read All Reviews
