Strengths:    Excellent fit, great shape, secure, lightweight, inexpensive and ideal for medium to larger heads

Weaknesses:    Colors (other than black) reveal limited shell coverage, i.e. not as attractive as high-end alternatives. Typical for helmets in this price range.

Bottom Line:   
Bell's ErgoDial fit system is excellent. Coming from a 90's era Giro comprised of plastic shell, styrofoam base and simple foam pads, the adjustable locking system is a major upgrade. You can get the fit just right (snug but not uncomfortable) and never worry about shakes or shifts on bumpy trails.

I think it's a good-looking helmet, too. This bucket sits around your head--not on top--which precludes that "mushroom" look while offering better protection in the event of a spill. For someone with a good-sized melon (I wear a 7-3/8 cap), wearing a close-fitting lid also makes for a more flattering fit.

Don't let the price fool you. This is a quality, solid-performing helmet. Highly recommended

Date Reviewed: August 17, 2009

Strengths:    Light and great ventilation

Weaknesses:    Strap design around the ear, kind of annoying to adjust
Once complete it fits great

Bottom Line:   
Great helmet that is very light and will get you thru the heat. There is minimal restrictions when wearing it and it fits quite securely.
I have not had to "use" is yet, but I know with the mfg Bell that I can rest assured of safety and performance

Shopping for new lights - 1st venture into night riding

I'm in the market for some lights. I want to start with a small helmet light at first - something that will be sufficient on its own while I figure out if NR is for me or not. I am looking at the Lupine Piko at 750 lumens because a) its bright and b) small and light. Then I see the thread about the ... Read More »
