The Bell Variant Bike Helmet deviates from the standard helmet, delivering a host of high-end features in a lightweight, comfortable package. Thanks to Bell’s Fusion Microshell construction throughout, the Variant offers a high degree of durability and safety. Internal reinforcements also allow Bell to take off some weight and build in more groovy-looking vents to keep your noggin cool while you’re climbing towards the ridge. Dial in the fit of the helmet with the Geared Positioning System, cam-lock strap levers, and adjustable visor.

Bell Variant Helmet Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

This is the second Variant helmet I've purchased for my kids. The sizing is incredible...it fits my head as an adult as well as my 8 year old's head. Very comfortable, kids have worn it all summer.

Negative Reviews:

I had been wearing this helmet for a couple of years. Decided to buy a new helmet due to the smell of my bell variant. Wow, the fit of this helmet sucks! I had no idea how bad this helmet fit until I got a new one. This helmet was always falling down and I had to push the front up. It didn't matter how tight on my head this helmet was it would always fall down. don't buy this helmet, it sucks.

Neutral Reviews:

I agree with previous reviewers that this helmet sits high, but it is very comfortable and durable. I took a hard fall on the Wasatch Crest trail a few weeks ago, going pretty fast around a washed-out right turn. I hit the right side of my head pretty hard on the trail, then slid (on my helmet/shoulder) off the side into some rocks. Pretty bad headache for about ten minutes, but no damage to my head, and the helmet is just has a few minor scratches and dents. Still getting a new one that fits better.

This helmet is great quality and very comfortable, but it sits too high on my head for my liking. Total mushroom head and looks dumb. I know looking good has nothing to do with safety, but they do make helmets that sit lower on your head and pritect it as well.
