Designed by the same team that brought you the Moto-8 motocross helmet, the Bell Drop Mountain Bike Helmet lets you attack the course head on with a burly ABS plastic shell to protect your braincase. The Drop meets the safety requirements of not only the CPSC, but the ASTM, as well -- a standard which is voluntary and demands a higher impact velocity. This fullface Bell helmet’s visor side pivots increase durability in case you do decide to put that higher impact velocity to the test.
I've tried a lot of different full faced helmets and this one fits me the best. I always wear a Medium in road/mountain helmets (I'm at the upper end of the sizing range though), but I guess my head is a weird shape because many of the full-faced mediums were just too tight. Specialized Deviant (too tight), Giro Remedy (too tight), SixSixOne (too tight). So I'd try the large size and they were way too big. The Bell Drop in a medium is just right. Way better venting than a SixSixOne and if it were vented like the Deviant, then 5 stars, but it's not quite that luxurious. Great lid.
Lightweight. Fits well. Great visibility. I bought this helmet when I started dirt jumping. I was afraid it would limit my visibility because I'm used to wearing a regular mountain bike helmet. I can't even tell I'm wearing it. I feel safe. My head sweats almost immediately when I put it on, but I have yet to feel hot in this helmet. Plan on racing an enduro with it this summer.
I bought this for Downhill skateboarding and its great. Its comfortable, light, the ventilation works great on it, and its doesn't block your vision very much. And I imagine its great for mountain biking also.
I was worried this would be a cheaply made helmet but its actually very nice. Can't beat it for the money. Fits well and comfortable. Looks great and fairly light.
Hey this is the helmet to get. I have it and am happy with it and glad i didn't spend 100$ more for a different look.
Sweet helmet, looks awesome, not to heavy, gets the job done for sure. Grab one, because who needs to spend $500 on a helmet?
Fits amazing and super comfortable. Doesnt get too hot and the buckle is super easy to use.
Strong and comfy!! Mine broke last year so I bought the Six Six One Comp Shifted Helmet.
I really like this helmet, especially for the price. My noggin feels well protected.
great helmet without the hefty price
The Bell Drop sizing is intended for Charlie Brown or Stewie from the Family Guy. If you're going to get one size down from what you normally get. I wear a large in THE helmets and the large Bell was huge. It was way too wide.
