Bell Super or TLD A1
Can’t tell you which is best for vents or protection, what I would say is try them on and see which fits best. I’ve been looking for a helmet that fits for the last year – Xar didn’t, Urge didn’t… numerous other didn’t or didn’t have enough vents (Giro feature).
I got hold of the Bell Super and very happy with it, especially the fit, I think it might be slightly hotter than my old Xen (has lots of vents though) but then it covers more of my head, so what do you expect.It’s also been pretty humid lately, so difficult to tell.
PS: That IXS looks good/well vented, not seen that or the TLD one before.Posted 4 years ago
Bell Super in bright green or TLD A1 in bright yellow with black bits in !
Its time to change my old Giro Hex and need something that looks good, I know its a helmet and you must wear one or you will die but I’ve been riding since it was fashionable to not wear one !
I know BELL make some good helmets and you can see the thought that’s gone into it, I like the smooth lines and would ideally like a bright yellow one to match my bike ?
TLD again have a good track record on helmet design and protection, this one looks a bit complicated, maybe it cools better with the vents etc but I’m not liking as much as the other

Ventation is important , safety not so …………davosaurusrexSubscriber
I just bought a Scott Groove II from Start cycles for £27, same as the Lin but without the Mips bit. Really comfy, very light, supposed to be one of the best vented lids on the market but even then I wouldn’t have said it’s night and day compared to my Feature. Lids are hot generally, innit?
I was all set to get a Bell Super but really don’t like how the straps attach to the outer edge, seems very heavy for the money too. The TLD just looks ‘special’, not even Peaty or Nigel Page can carry them off.Posted 4 years agomindmap3Member
That Bell helmet is really nice – certainly looks better than the TLD one which is a bit minging. The IXS one looks good too.
I’m thinking about replacing my Urge because its a bit minging now and the Bell is top of the list providing it fits.
I think I am in the minority but I like the Smith helmet but I doubt I’ll like the price tag very much.Posted 4 years ago
