Skate helmets have received a lot of love over the past few years in many different sports. They have a clean, classic look, but they don't have the greatest reputation for comfort. That's about to change, though, with the introduction of the Bell Segment Helmet.
The reason that skate-style helmets work so well is the same reason they aren't usually all that comfortable: the ABS hard shell. The folks at Bell have found a way to use the ABS shell so that it still offers that hard shell protection, but it's flexible to conform to the shape of your head. They connect interior EPS foam segments with a reinforcing skeleton that allows everything to flex. Not only does this mean greater comfort, but it offers better protection by eliminating the gaps between your helmet and your head in an ill-fitting helmet.
The Segment sports eight vents to allow air to flow freely around your head to keep it cool and dry. It's also lightweight–less than a pound–which adds to the comfort.
The Bell Segment Helmet is availbale in 3 sizes, S, M, and L. It comes in nine different color options: Matte Blue/Green Jimbo Phillips Melting Heads, Matte Titanium Taylor Reeve Afterparty, Matte Black, Matte Grey, Blue, Matte Turquoise, Burnt Orange, Matte Bone, and Matte Gray/Black Skratch 54.
The Bell Segment Bike Helmet combines the protection of more traditional helmets with a new comfort brought about through advanced technology. Weighing less than half a kilogram, it is able to maintain certifications such as ATSM F2032-06, CE EN1078, and CPSC Bicycle with a much more comfortable fit based on its utilization of a series of EPS foam segments connected by a reinforcing skeleton. Ventilation is provided by 8 vents. The Bell Segment Bike Helmet is perfect for casual or competitive riding alike!
Bell Segment Bike Helmet features CPSC Bicycle, CE EN 1078, and ASTM F2032-06 certification. It weighs 410 grams and has 8 vents. Features include ABS Hard Plastic Shell, and Segmented EPS Liner consisting of EPS foam segments connected by a reinforcing skeleton which allows the helmet to flex and conform to the head while still meeting all the above certifications. The Bell Segment Bike Helmet retains the protection of traditional helmets but brings a new comfort level to strenuous riding.
A classic skate-style helmet, the Segment provides the protection of a skate-style lid with added comfort thanks to an EPS liner. The Segment utilizes a series of interior EPS foam segments connected by a reinforcing skeleton, allowing the helmet to flex and conform to your head while still meeting safety standards--including the ASTM F2032 BMX enhancement.
