Bell Super 3 MIPS Helmet Men's Matte Black/White, L
Cruising around the driveway on your grip-shift 9-speed in your classic Bell helmet might've been a defining vignette of your childhood, but we'd hazard a guess that Bell hasn't been on your radar much since you stopped riding the school bus. We'll fill you in on what you've missed. As you've grown taller, lost the braces, cut your hair, and moved out of Mom and Dad's house, Bell's done some growing up of its own. Its newer crop of MTB helmets is ready for a lot more than driveway cruising return to Bell with the Super 3 MIPS Helmet and protect your dome when you're hunting down tacky dirt on your all-mountain hound and you'll see what we're talking about. The Super 3 MIPS shares a lot with its rowdier DH sibling, the Super 3R MIPS, with the main distinction being the Super 3's affinity for trail and all-mountain riding over DH and freeride. An In-Mold polycarbonate shell stands guard against direct impacts, while a MIPS liner sits inside the helmet, limiting the effects of dome-damaging rotational energy generated in certain crashes that exert oblique forces on your thinking muscle. Bell knows you'll be climbing as much as descending on trail rides, so it punches out 23 vents across the Super 3, plus internal channels along the brow, to help you stay cool and level-headed on never-ending switchbacks. Pop a camera into the included camera mount--it'll breakaway in the event of a crash to save it, and you, from further damage--and make quick on-trail fit adjustments with the Float Fit dial, which has been lightened and rubberized this year for added comfort.
