Fusion In-Mold Microshell | In-molding is the process of bonding the helmet’s Microshell to its EPS foam layer to provide a sturdier, more solid helmet. The EPS foam is shot into the thin Microshell cap when it is in the mold—thus the name—rather than formed separately and taped on later. This process was pioneered by Bell and is now the industry-wide standard for all high-end helmets. It’s now standard on all Bell adult and child helmets.
GPS Fit System | For a glove-like fit, nothing beats Bell's exclusive Geared Positioning System (GPS). GPS delivers the ultimate one hand adjustment for superior fit and comfort. Simply slide the dial to click-in to the perfect custom fit.
Internal Reinforcement | In order to maximize venting and minimize bulk, high-end helmets like the Sweep, Ghisallo and X-Ray now feature internal reinforcements. These composite skeletons fortify helmets the same way rebar makes concrete stronger. This allows for bigger vents, more advanced styling and lighter weight, while still meeting stringent safety standards.
Channeled Ventilation | Specially designed ventilation channels on the interior of the helmet's liner bring cool air in through the front, pass it over the head and flushes warm air out of the rear ports. You'll find some form of this feature on almost all Bell helmets, but our higher end helmets feature deeply sculpted channels that keep air moving whether you're bombing it at 30 mph, or huffing it uphill at single digit speed.
Cam-Lock Levers | Bell's Cam-Lock strap levers make it easy to adjust the straps around your ears. Simply open the cam…position comfortably and close the lever. Done.
Registered Graphics | Getting helmet graphics to hit the right spot on the helmet without distorting or warping is more challenging than most people realize. It’s why you see many of our competitors only doing helmets in solid colors or with very simple graphics. Bell designers have pioneered methods for registering graphics, so that we can make some of the most graphically complex and visually appealing helmets in the world.
