If there is one item of riding gear you never want to leave the house without, it is definitely your helmet. Women’s helmets have changed a lot over the years – for the better. Not only are they more stylish, they are lighter, stronger and designed to exceed the standards set to keep you safe as you ride.
You’ve heard the concept of wearing a good quality helmet that meets DOT standards preached time and time again, but have you ever wondered why a helmet that meets or exceeds these standards is so important? Basically, the ratings all boil down to how well a helmet performs during a rigid set of testing procedures, including those focused on:
Helmets come in a variety of shapes and styles for many different kinds of activities – but not all helmets are created equal. Helmets that are specifically formulated for motocross riding have been designed to meet the challenges you might face on the track or trail. They have been tested accordingly to make sure that when it comes down to the wire, the helmet will perform well under pressure. DOT approved helmets have met at least the minimum testing requirements made by the US government in each safety test. Additional non-profit organizations such as Snell have also complied a separate set of rigorous tests to assess the overall integrity of a helmet and how it performs when you need protection the most. When you wear a helmet that has been certified by these organizations, you can feel confident that you have made a step in the right choice for your safety.

Great helmet. Little tight initially but it’s breaking in well. It looks bada** and I got a great deal. I like how the visor can easily be adjusted in case you need to block out the sun. My old Fox Airspec goggles don’t fit that well into the helmet (gotta angle them just right) but I’m planning on getting news ones so minor concern.Read All Reviews

I bought this helmet on a whim, so glad I did. Awesome fit and comfortable. The helmet is also very light. I have been a Shoei and Arai guy, this is my first Bell helmet.Read All Reviews

This is a nice-looking helmet - I bought the blue and green one, the colors are nice and bright - and I've gotten several compliments on it. It doesn't limit my field of view whatsoever, and my goggles fit perfectly. I have had no issues with the durability of the helmet, however I haven't been involved in a crash with my head and I haven't dropped it. The visor is adjustable like other helmets and will stay put to where you want it. It isn't too sweaty, even in late August heat, and while the ventilation isn't anything to brag about, it does a nice job for the price of this helmet. The fit is comfortable and true to size. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a quick-release tab on the chinstrap, but that isn't a deal breaker for me. Overall, I love this helmet.Read All Reviews
