Bell Bicycle Helmets
all Bell Bicycle Helmets are CPSC Certified

Bell Omega Adult Bike HelmetBell Sports Inc. has been making Bell bicycle helmets since 1954 not only for the cycling industry, but also helmets for motor sports and road riding. They have a full range of helmets from the bell toddler bike helmet to those more specialized for BMX and mountain bike riders.

Claim to Fame:
Bell Helmets GPS Adjustment systemGeared Positioning System (GPS): a one handed adjustment of the interior harness to fine tune the fit and snug it around your head, no fussing with straps, foam or clips. Available only on its higher end helmets.

Cam Lock Levers:
bell helment cam-loc leversOpen and shut levers that allow you to customize the fit of the straps around your ears. A big improvement on the old buckles that took a lot of time and fiddling to get the fit right.

Ventilation:
Various numbers of ventilation channels are used in bell bicycle helmets to direct air over the top of your head to cool you off. On the more expensive models like the Bell Sweep, Ghisallo and X-Ray bike helmet the channels are more highly sculptured and direct more air flow with wind tunnel perfection to keep you cool. They use a composite skeleton that strengthens the bicycle helmet's design to allow for less helmet, reduced weight and more vents, yet with the same impact strength.. These higher end helmets are typically in the $100 range.

For the casual rider breaking the bank to buy the bike helmet with the most vents may not make any sense. Looking at their sport line of Bell Citi helmets may be more appropriate.

Certification: All bell bicycle helmets are CPSC Certified
