Got the new Bell Super helmet the other day. As many know, Bell are having issues with UK distributors at the moment so me and several others have sourced them from Europe or elsewhere.
Thought I'd share a few words and pics on my initial thoughts as I'm guessing there are a few folks wanting these as their next lid.
My experience comes from using a Fox Flux helmet before this.
My bonce is about 57cm so I went for a size medium in green.
The fit (for me) is fantastic straight out of the box. It really feels like it cups my head whereas the Fox felt like it Sat on top of my head. Obviously this is a personal thing but it really provides much better coverage than the Fox.
The adjustable retention strap also goes quite low and really provides that cupping feel to this helmet. There is no click to the adjustment wheel, it just sort of gets tighter. Very effective.
I feel like I can undo the chinstrap with this helmet and it would still stay on my head well.
It's got shed loads of holes in it so ventilation is good. I went for a ride this evening and it's still pretty hot so I was sweating like a pig. On the go you get a decent breeze through the vents though.
The visor is good, it's within my vision when I look, goes back well should I want it to, and is easily removable should you want to.
The straps are comfortable and seem to do the job. Excess strap after the buckle is free to flap about whereas the Fox had a neat little rubber ring to stow it under. A tiny niggle.
The padding is great. Seems really good quality and well fitted. It also came with the Gopro mount fitted but I took it off as I'm not a fan of that POV.
Colour is BRIGHT! Paint finish is pretty good though if I was being picky, the line between the green and black lower sections is a tiny bit not brilliant in places. Another small niggle.
All in all, I'm really happy with it and would recommend trying one.
Goes well with fields and that..
It's all about the colour coordination
Visor flipped up
So anyway...yeah, it's good.
