👤There is a difference between Bell and the other helmets that are on sale. Bell has been around since the 1950's and is respected around the world for making a superior product. Indy car drivers, motocross professionals, NASCAR drivers, cart racers, Tour de France cyclists, and everyday people like you and me are the choice of them. I was pleasantly surprised to see this helmet at a great price on Amazon, I was looking for a quality helmet for my 10 year old grandson. It was great to find out that the package was made in the US. The construction is top notch and the images on the listing don't portray how nice and vibrant the helmet's graphics are. Instructions are clear on how to fit. It fits Grandson perfectly. Don't pay more than a dollar or two. Your loved ones safety and well being are of paramount importance. Bell has a long history. The helmet is a good buy at a reasonable price.
👤I was hesitant to get a universal fit helmet for my kids because they rattle around on top of their head, not protecting anything. There is a The elastic rear and chin straps are perfect for my kids. I bought one for each of my four kids, with head shapes ranging from "spheroid" to "egg-ish." The helmet fits them all securely. I have to do something about the teenagers who are speeding through my neighborhood.
👤The outer shell of the helmet popped off when my son wore it for a week. I might try hot glueing myself back on. The helmet is not adjusted like most.
👤Kids aren't easy on things. They think that everything is safe. It's a big deal when you teach them that something needs to be taken care of. I told my son to put his helmet on his handlebars when he got off his bike. It hangs there not touching anything. I noticed that the bill is moving. The plastic nubs that hold it in place are broken off. I expected this feature to last for a while.
👤I bought a helmet for my son that was high quality, and it was the glacier chevron design. The color in the picture is not true. It is clearly a girl's helmet. My son is willing to wear it now that he has Sharpie.
👤My 2nd graders bike helmet is too big for him. There is a He had no problem with it for a long time. It looked good and was reasonably priced. There is a We went for a bike ride. My son said it's hurting. I took the helmet off, and I could feel the glue on his hair. There is a Maybe this was a one-off. I will return it.
👤The helmet didn't work for my grandson. The helmet is tight but still able to move despite the adjustment. Being a Bell, I would expect it to be a good product. I am returning it and getting a new one.
Bell pioneered a process called fusion in-molded polycarbonate shell that bonds the helmet's outer shell to the foam liner. The Multi-directional Impact Protection System is a leading slip-plane technology inside the helmet that is designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts. The dial feel and function of ERGO FIT has been improved, and it is more sleek and less bulky. No-twist triangle guillotines help keep straps flat and properly positioned. The universal adult is 53-60 cm.
👤It's lightweight and comfortable. There was no serious injury. I had a crash on my gps. 28mph. I hit the ground head first and didn't feel anything. I think it did its job. I would buy again.
👤It's a nice looking helmet. The Giro Fixture is almost off white, but the medium grey is a medium grey. It works well on both the lock system and chin strap. I looked at the inside of it as I wore it, because something upfront was making my foreheadirritating. There is no padding behind or above the ear or along the backside, only padding along the front and part of the side. The padding is very thin, unlike the Giro Fixture. The padding is not attached to the inside of the shell, it loops under two plastic loops, just off the center of the helmet. Those plastic loops on my forehead irritate me. I tried to cushion the area with extra padding from another helmet, but it created a pressure spot because of the extra padding in the two areas. If Bell had spent an additional 50 cents on padding, it would have been a great helmet. I can't get over the irritation on the forehead. It is being shipped back. It would be better if I gave it a 3.5 star rating.
👤It fits me on the small side. I don't like it as much as the new Giro because it's nicer. I have a large head. It's my least favorite helmet. I keep it to have a spare for friends as I have a tandem and my older helmets are not very good.
👤It was taken on a crash and rolled down a hill. I was saved from puncture wounds by this helmet. I feel like the MIPS helped prevent further injury.
👤The chin strap was too short.
👤It was purchased because it is an economical helmet. The Bell decals on the left of the helmet are not the traditional Bell logo, and I removed them. It looks small, but it fits. The paddings are very thin. It is heavy. I regret buying it. I waste money.
👤I use this helmet for long rides on my bike. Giro helmets are the main competitor in the $50-60 price range, and the nicely adjusted straps make for a perfect custom fit, which is why I prefer Bell helmets. There is a The model's visor is a bit short and narrow, which is to say that I like a long wide visor for when I'm riding into the late afternoon sun. One solution may be to loosen up the straps a bit so I can tip the helmet forward under those conditions, but a loose or skewed helmet isn't ideal.
The structure has a visor. The lightest full-face is for dirt jump and BMX riders who want a smaller size and profile. It is suitable for use on a bicycle. The sizes are X- Small (48-50 cm), Small (51-54 cm), Medium (55-57 cm), and Large (60-60) Take a head measurement. Even within an age range, head sizes and shapes can vary. A helmet that does not fit can be dangerous.
👤The helmet is awesome, and I am so thankful that I stopped questioning spending the money and bought one. I got three for my boys. We were doing some downhills for the weekend. I wanted to be sure they had the right ones. Glad I did. The youngest was in the middle of the small range at 53 1/2 and the oldest was in the middle of the medium at 55 1/2. The small wouldn't go on the youngest without hurting his ears. I was pulling it apart as hard as I could and was going to hurt him when he put it on. Without some tears, it would not have been possible to get it off. The medium was very tight for the older person. He looked like a fish with his cheeks all mushed together. Everyone was happy when I bumped them up a size. I know how a helmet should fit, and am very comfortable with the safety of how they fit in larger sizes. I think the measurements are incorrect. There is a I got all 3 sizes. They both went down the park. One did a full flip and face planted on a rock access road. The size of golf balls did him in. He slid on his face. I had to watch because he was 10 ft. behind me. That was the scariest thing I have ever watched as a father. Not a scratch on him. The helmet looks like it went through a war, but he was fine. The other son bit it. Again, no scratch to his face or head. Buy the helmet!
👤This is an initial review to help people with their size. Amazon is notorious for leaving out product details. After you click on each size, the helmet has accurate size info in the description. I believe the Large is 58-60 cm. I used floss or string to measure it, but it was always 58 cm, and I found it easier to use a soft tape measure. I was surprised by the inconsistentness of the helmet sizes on the internet. Very. I couldn't find a proper size chart on Bell's website. A normal adult male size is actually rated as a Large here, because this is a 'youth' helmet. It was difficult for me to decide because my 58-59 cm measurement is on the line between Medium and Large in most size charts. If you measure between 58 and 59 cm, you don't want a medium. You would like a large. I don't think I have a round head, but mine is snug and the cheek parts are the most snug. It's hard to tell the difference between the cheek pieces and the rest of the helmet, which to me seems more normal. I know that full-face helmets are going to fit more like motorcycle helmets, but they have to fit tighter than many people think, to the point where some feel like they're too small, but they're not. I don't have any experience with full-face bicycle helmets and only limited experience with motorcycle helmets, so this is my entry-level effort, yet I don't see what more I'd expect for the price. If you research this helmet, you will find a review from an outdoor gear lab, which gives it low marks. They pit this helmet against others that cost twice or quintuple the cost, and then say it feels like a toy because it's so light. It's funny to read actual user reviews. In my reading, most criticism was focused on comparing helmets and features outside of its price range, or confusion in size. The cheapest helmet on Amazon has the same certification as the one that was the most legitimate criticism. That could be a good lead for some readers, and perhaps me someday. There is a The Bell Super 2R starts at twice the price of the Sanction, and the 2R's version is about 3x, which I was going to get. After losing out on one of Amazon's price discounts, I found a number of reports of sizing problems with the MIPS version, and a number of riders said they could push down on it. A number of bikers are saying to themselves, if you're going to wear a helmet, why wouldn't you want frontal protection? Some people think they don't need a helmet, but if you ride uphill, do you need a helmet? It made sense to me that I'd never want something less than full-face now that I've worn an open-face helmet before. The advantage of theremovable jaw lost a lot of its appeal at that point. I didn't like the fact that vendors were releasing a non-MIPS version of the helmet. I don't see how this can cause sizing problems because I know how MIPS works. I don't think a helmet should be an add-on that takes up extra room or that it should be a helmet that is made from the ground up. I think they'll improve, and I think I'll end up with one, but it seems like it's still new. I'm starting with this instead of going crazy with it. The Sanction seems to offer more protection than a non-MIPS Super 2R, at a half price. I like that I could get it in a black color. There were no photos of the inside front jaw area. I don't know if the front of other helmets is padded. The Super 2R has no padding in the front, and this one is not either. The Sanction's cheek pads are near my teeth. When the chin strap is on, the helmet stays put better because of the'mandibles' of the helmet. The chin strap is similar to regular open-face helmets and seems fine, but I don't know what to expect. I'm not sure if the visor adds protection, but it seems it could. I have a lot of visibility and breatheability and could talk easily with it on, but I think the helmet is designed for narrower faces than pumpkinheads. I don't see how the helmet could fit better than it already is. I tried a number of helmets in a local store, and they didn't fit right, and most seemed small, which makes sense because biking is mostly a youth thing, and I guess a medium youth can be different than a medium adult. Unless you're a gambler, I'd recommend avoiding helmets that don't have measurement ranges. I found some full-facers that were cheaper than this one on Amazon. Bell does a lot of actual research and that costs money, but produces results, so I went with this one. I felt a helmet in this price range was already a bargain, and I didn't want to push it further where my head's at stake. I was buying the right size because reviewers gave their specific sizes. Please provide your measurement, the size you got, and how that combo worked, if you review. There is a I don't like how the vendors jack up their prices. The cheapest price I could find was seven bucks less than when I bought it, which was close to the price of the used return I bought from Amazon Warehouse. The Warehouse item was listed as 'like new/packaging may be damaged'. The box was retaped and a little beat-up, but the black fabric bag had some dirt on it. I didn't know it came with a bag, but I wouldn't consider it packaging. The helmet was almost new, with some outer fingerprints, which would be expected. Here are a few more observations. There is a - After wearing the helmet, you will have to put on your glasses. Good luck if you get an itch. You have to take it off to get to it. I don't see how the plastic shell of most open-face helmets would be able to absorb a blow. Common wisdom says that if you have a crash with a helmet, you should stop using it. A lot of reviewers are talking about continuing to use theirs after a big impact. This is the best bang-for-buck protection for people upselling from a bottom-feeder option. My cheeks look a little small when I look in the mirror, but I think that's the last line of defense from my face coming out of the helmet. It's light for what it is and heavier than a lightweight open-face. The helmet is shaping up to be what I expected, which is a good thing.

👤The Bell Super 3R is against Giro Switchbade. First, I'll talk about how I ride. I need a FF for those times when I hit the downhills as hard as I dare, because I have to climb everything I go down. I have a Sixsixone FF and it's fine if I just go downhill the whole time, but you also hit trails that go back up a ways then down again. The FF doesn't work well for this, so I've been looking for a hybrid which I can adjust easier than taking the FF on and off constantly. I didn't try the new Giro Switchblade until I bought it, because no one had it in stock. It looked great at first glance, but after trying it on I realized there were several things that weren't going to work for me and how I ride. The build and protection on the Switchblade is better than my Sixsixone, which is officially downhill rated. The locking mech is very good. It had thick padding inside. The dial sticks down a ways here. When you bend your head back in a riding stance, the dial would dig into my back bone. If you crashed head first, the dial would drive right through your spine. The Switchbade was very hot after just a few minutes of wearing it around the house, I was already breaking a sweat. The cheek pads were too tight. I think this helmet was as hot as my FF Sixsixone. There were pressure spots and loose spots in my head. I use sound a lot for my balance and I didn't like having my ear covered. I returned the Switchbade because there was no way I could live with those issues. There is a I picked up the Bell 3R after my Switchbade experience. The Switchbade is heavier duty than the 3R. The 3R is not downhill rated. The chin guard isn't as strong as the Switchbade, and it's more flexible and light duty. The padding is thinner in the 3R. The 3R fits my head better. It's not bad, but the top of my ears rubs on the helmet. The helmet seems a bit wide, and the straps come down from the outside of the helmet, allowing it to wobble a little side to side, but not bad enough. The most important thing for me is that the dial doesn't dig into my spine at any angle. Being lighter doesn't make the 3R hotter than the Switchblade. Even with the chin guard on, this helmet is very cool. It felt lighter on my head, which made me focus on riding. I think the 3R chin guard is more difficult to install than the Grio, but after a few tries I've gotten a lot better at it. The 3R received a thumbs up. It's not perfect, but close enough for me. I hope this helps anyone looking at these. There is a Yesterday I had my first big crash with this helmet. These things are not something we're prepared for. I am very happy that I was wearing this helmet. I would have been in the hospital right now with missing teeth and facial flesh if I hadn't been. I took a jump and then mis timed a second one, stuffing my front wheel in a 3ft hole at medium speed. I was thrown into a rocky creek head. I hit my head so hard that my eyes wouldn't focus for about 5 minutes and my ears were ringing loudly. The frames of my glasses broke. When I got my sight back, I could not believe that there was no damage to my face. My head and face are undamaged, even though I have a good headaches and messed up back. My ass was saved by this helmet. I had the small chin guards in and the inner pads removed. This was a lot more comfortable, but it did allow my face to press more to the front of the helmet on impact. I see the value in the cheek pads.

👤I bought this for my three year old. It sits on his head. Very disappointed. I bought the same brand helmet in the same size for his twin sister and it fit just fine. I would have read the reviews before I bought this Spiderman helmet.
👤My son is almost 3 years old and his head is over 50 cm. He was crying because it was too tight. I assumed it would be ok since his head was within the helmet size. We have a helmet from the same brand that fits him well but it is noticeably larger than this one. The helmet in the picture with the white inside is our other helmet from this brand and the black inside is the spider man helmet. Unfortunately, we will have to return it because my son was excited about it.
👤It was perfect for my grandson. He loves climbing and has a helmet that comes in handy.
👤The helmet is too small. I measured my son's head before buying him a helmet that was too small. He doesn't want to ride his bike for too long because of the headaches he gets after wearing the helmet. He loves riding his bike and gets all excited, but as soon as the helmet comes on, he changes his plans and rides for just half a block, and the first thing he wants to do when we get back home is rip the helmet off. It wouldn't be a good idea to buy this product because sizes don't match up.
👤It works perfectly for my 2 year old, but not sure how long it will last because it isn't changeable like most other toddler helmets. Before I got the chance to come back, my son fell in love with the looks. It is ours now. I would choose something that would last a bit longer.
👤My son is 4 years old and this helmet doesn't fit. He acted like it hurt when I tried to put it on. I bought it for him as a birthday present. I can not return the helmet because I bought it in advance and the window for returns is closed.
👤If you buy it for 3 YO, it will have to fit a 3 YO because it says 3-6, but if you buy it for 18mo, it will fit a 2 YO. It's a nice looking helmet, but beware that you can't adjust the chin strap by adding more length... That is all. The strap falls out of the clip if you give it more length than that. It doesn't fit like all of the other helmets. It is very small. Notice the reviews that are 5 stars, and how they say it is for two people.
Drugging: In-mold construction. Every time, there is one simple adjustment for a correct fit. The top and rear vents keep you cool. Hi-impact reflectors improve visibility. There is protection from the sun and elements. It fits head sizes 56 - 60 cm. The U.S.CPSC has a safety standard for bicycle helmets.
👤Bell helmets have been in my possession for many years. I hate them now because they switched to "one size fits all". Hey Bell, just call it "one size fits many, but nowhere near all". I plan to take pictures and it will be embarrassing for Bell. The Bell Adrenaline and Bell Draft are jokes when it comes to fitting large heads. There is an update. Bell's website says the Draft "Universal Adult" fits 54-61 cm or 21.2-24 in, which is an obvious lie. Their size is a joke. I've worn Bell helmets for a long time, they used to offer small and large versions. They say Universal Adult. Not! The Bell Adrenaline and Bell Draft are the same size as the other one, and it's a joke. Bell, your size is rancid.
👤The helmet is a great price. The 5 star review is what it is. I've been using it for two years. It has been the only helmet I have used and it has served me well. I have a small issue that may help others. The front of the helmet has a fabric pad attached to it. It's comfortable and can be washed. It worked well for shorter rides and on cool days, but when you sweat a lot it absorbs and holds that warm sweat against your forehead. I squeezed out the sweat by pressing the helmet against my head. It's not ideal when you want to keep your eyes on the road. This is more of a hassle if you are wearing glasses. It would be better if they made that pad out of non-absorbent material. There is a The product is a great one. I will be looking for something better with the knowledge that I may have to spend more money. There is a Hope this helps.
👤I found a study done by Virginia Tech that rated the safety of bike helmets. This helmet is one of the cheapest with this rating, and it got 4 out of 5 stars. Does it have all the bells and whistles? Not really. The chin strap buckle would have been easier for me. The knob adjustment feature on other helmets is what I would have liked. For the price, it is a bargain, and I know that it will protect my head, whereas with no-name helmets that cost the same, you have no idea if it will do the job. I bought mine from the Amazon Warehouse for half the price, making it a great deal. Unless you have a lot of money, I would recommend this.
The U.S.CPSC has a safety standard for bicycle helmets. Also complies with U.S. safety standards. Vents keep heads cool. It fits heads of 50-54 cm. The side squeeze buckle is easy to adjust. The bike and the skate are compliant with the standards of the CPSC. Take a head measurement. Within an age range, head sizes and shapes can vary. A helmet that does not fit can be dangerous.
👤He wears a helmet that is good quality everyday, and this one was so cool, I bought it for my kids.
👤Light weight and decent amount of thickness allow a child to want to wear it for a long time. My son pretends to be a special forces operator and wears a military style helmet.
👤My son loved it, but the blue plastic on the helmet fell apart, and everything else fell apart. His friends had the same helmet. Cool but cheap.
👤This is a great gift for a kid who loves bikes and Captain America.
👤My almost 4 year old son was perfectly fitted for this helmet. Measure your child's head before buying. I had a hard time figuring out what size he was but once I had his head measurement it was much easier. The white design on the side gets a bit dirty fast. I feel like that is expected. The helmet has a smooth finish that is similar to other helmets. My son likes it.
👤My son and I were excited to get this. After two rides, they started to warp. If I don't get Captain America again, I'll try another one.
👤We haven't had any issues with the durability of the wings and shield in the heat of central Florida. My son wears this all the time. He hasn't had it in the heat of the summer. I will update my review if there is an issue. He loves it! There is a Even though his head is within the suggested measurement, it is still a little big. It's not easy to adjust the helmet.
👤The three year old loved it. Put it on him. He took it off when he found his bike warped. I think it was low 80s when we were in Northern Michigan. Would not recommend.
👤This is not adjusted. It's not possible to put a strap on the chin or around the ears to make the actualy helmet sit securely on your child's head. What is the point? Do not take the risk. First and foremost, a helmet is for safety. The image and print of the captain is lovely, but I was disappointed that it was returned.
👤Me hubiera gustado, pero se pudiera ajustar a la cabeza.
👤Muy buen Casco, aunque adquiri una talla Grande.
The chin rope can move up and down, the tension around the head can be adjusted by the back knob. The needs of most cycling riders are met by the size of the circle. Ages 14+ fits head sizes 54 to 61 cm. Within an age range, head sizes and shapes can vary. A helmet that does not fit can be dangerous. Every time, the dial fit system is used. The texture is cool and has increased longevity. There are 21 vents for a cool ride. The U.S.CPSC has a safety standard for bicycle helmets.
👤The delivery date was the end of January and I got a more expensive helmet. I need it for this weekend. I got a cost effective way to get through the next couple of weekends. The color is perfect and it's comfortable. I'm not sure if I'm letting it go because my daughter said she's going to grab it when my other helmet arrives. It's perfect and it's Breathable. It's priced right. It looks good!
👤I hit my head on the pavement after a biking accident. The Bell Ferocity Bike Helmet protected my head. I would like to thank Bell for saving my head. If I hit my head again, I will be protected from it, but I am ordering a new one anyway.
👤This helmet is great. It is a really pretty rose gold. Very comfortable. It was worth the wait!
👤My wife has a rose gold bike and I wanted to give her a cute helmet.
👤The price is low, the fit is custom and the weight is light. We got the same one. I think all is great. Unless we fall, we won't be able to tell.
👤It is light weight and comfortable, I forgot to put it on.
👤I was looking for a helmet that matched my bike. I found what I was looking for at an affordable price.
👤You can adjust the fit of this helmet. It fits well and feels secure.

👤The product is great, but the helmet is red, so my 3 star rating is more on the seller than on the product. The color description is red/ gray. It is like red red. Like a fire engine red, lightening McQueen red, or a stop sign red. The 2020 Bell Super Air R helmets are in a Burnt Orange color, according to the picture on Amazon. I was trying to decide between two colors and the Burnt orange look was the one that won me over. I was disappointed to get a helmet from the Fire Engine. It is very sharp even in that color, but not what was depicted in the photos. The Red Helmet looks like what it was delivered, but if you go to Bell's website, you'll see it's taken from their website. After I got it, I realized. Please fix the tint on your photo to represent the true color. This is the helmet you want if you want a light bike helmet. It is an awesome helmet even though it is not the same color as pictured.
👤I ride Trail to light All- Mountain in the northwest, sometimes we get into some Enduro trails as well. My wife and I have been wearing helmets such as Fox and Giro. They are just top shells for trail riding. After my wife caught a pedal on a fairly steep rooty section and did a flying head face first into a large cut off stump, I hiked out 2 miles in shock and went to the ER to have a hole in her face patched up... I decided it was time to replace my helmet. The Bell Super Air is comfortable, light weight, easy to install chin bar, good visibility, and I can work up a sweat. There's a con. The thumb adjustment is hard to reach. This helmet is very good.
👤Excellent helmet. Some people say that the helmet effectively smashes on impact, but that is not what it is supposed to do. It doesn't feel like a full face, it's incredibly comfortable and lightweight. It works well for riding a bike. It fills a need for a daily full face that will keep you from breaking your jaw on your rowdier rides. After a guy got his jaw broken on a trail ride, I was happy to be more cautious, and this helmet really adds some confidence to my protective gear.

👤I was considering the Bell Super 3 MIPS for a while, having seen a number of positive pro reviews, and through some research found that it was not downhill rated, despite it having a similar wraparound face mask. The purpose of having a face mask is defeated by this kind of thing. The Bell Sixer and the Super 3 have additional color options that I would prefer. I wore the red to help with visibility, especially for towing our toddler in the trailer in the neighborhood. The convertible helmet is great for its utility. For more demanding rides, lock in the face mask and wear the half-shell. I tell my children. It's a mask for mountain biking. The half-shell is great. There is plenty of padding for shavers. The retention mechanism is not hard plastic and it is not something I have had with other brands. This is one of the areas of concern with the helmets. The padding in the bike helmets is designed for people with hair. The issue of the traditional MIPS liner providing a thin plastic shell with a variety of "slices" or open areas to allow for air flow, which if resting directly against my head, is something that I have found to be problematic. There are a number of ways in which the Bell helmet remedies this. The internal webbing that wraps around the head is connected to the helmet by the pegs. For a better explanation, look at their product materials. The separate, frequently yellow MIPS liners can be a challenge to fit for head shavers. The padding on the helmet is so large that there wouldn't be any contact between the liner and the person's head. It's named "DH" because it exceeds basic bicycle hemet certifications you see with everyday helmets. It can take a harder hit, has a visor for goggles, and protects your face when you need it. There is a I could use thinner cheek pads for the face mask. I switched to the thinner pads that come with the helmet and it still feels snug. If you're listening, Bell, consider a third set of pads for the helmet for those of us with bigger melons, cheek/jaw bones, etc. I'm really enjoying this helmet.
👤The helmet is great. The fit is snug and feels very solid. The Giro Switchblade looks to be a great helmet, but I was between the two. I compared reviews from here, mountain biking forums and Youtube and chose this helmet for a number of reasons. 1. I am in Arizona. I wanted this helmet as it appears to have more vents which should help with air flow in the summer. The Bell is a good weight for long rides. A sore neck is the last thing you need while riding. The weight of a mount and Go Pro can add up quickly. 3. The chin bar securing method was better than the switchblade. The chin bar on the Switchblade is not locked and is prone to falling off in a hard crash, which is what multiple riders have reported in forums. Both companies have the same warranty. Both have a crash replacement program. Giro only offers the replacement program in the U.S., while Bell offers it in both the US and Europe. I found that the most popular searches were "Giro Switchblade failure" and "Bell Super DH failure". There are many forums with a lot of knowledge and you will see what I mean with the Giro's chin bar.
Bell pioneered a process called fusion in-molded polycarbonate shell that bonds the helmet's outer shell to the foam liner. The Multi-directional Impact Protection System is a leading slip-plane technology inside the helmet designed to reduce the effects of certain impacts. The ERGO-FIT is a light fixture. The dial feels better and is less bulky now that it no longer requires a push to turn. Quick-adjust bolts help keep straps flat and properly positioned. Sweat Guide pads pull water away from the brow pad and away from eyewear. There are Universal Women's (50-57 cm), Universal Adult (54-61 cm), and Universal XL (58-63 cm) sizes. Take a head measurement. Even within an age range, head sizes and shapes can vary. A helmet that does not fit can be dangerous.
👤I was saved by my Bell bike helmet. As a new owner of a popular brand of e-bike, I learned that these machines are to be taken seriously. I had a terrible wreck on my second night of owning it. It was cold outside. I was on a bike path with a small light. A dangerous set of circumstances. I was knocked unconscious for 20 minutes. The inside of my helmet was cracked in at least 4 places. I can only imagine what would have happened if I hadn't been wearing that helmet. I decided to stick with Bell for my helmet because of that save. I like the look of this one. I gave it the go-ahead. It's also very comfortable and very rugged. It has a slip plane called "MIPS" which is designed to reduce forces on the ground. The outer shell of the helmet is free to rotate in a certain degree when you strap it on. It makes it so that the shell is not the only thing on your head. Again, very comfortable. Highly recommended. You can ride rad!
👤I bought the XL because it was the cheapest big head with MIPs options I could find. This helmet fits my big melon, unlike most helmets that sit on top of my head. The chin strap is not long enough to close. They had no help when I called Bell. Bell buckles look normal but they are proprietary. I couldn't make an extension with parts from the fabric store. There is still a solution being worked on.
👤The helmet feels secure, fits well, and looks ridiculous. The angle of the picture made it look sleek, but it's a bit ridiculous.
👤This helmet is very lightweight and comfortable. Didn't know what brands to look for. Bell has been making helmets for ages and I always trusted them when I rode a motorcycle.
👤It's an extremely reasonable price for a helmet like this, and I like the comfort and fit. The picture makes it look like a burnt orange, but in person it's just red. I am happy with the purchase and still love the value.
👤The Bell helmet turned out to be better than expected. It's better than I had anticipated and it's great value.
👤The chin clasp is poorly designed. I'm past the return period now that it fell off while I was riding. Don't make the same mistake.
