Bell’s New Lids

Bell was established in 1954 and has been a leading innovator in helmet technology since. Their two new helmets, the Sixer and the Super DH are examples of Bell’s dedication to building the best helmets possible. We spent two days riding in these new helmets, including a trail ride in Squamish B.C and a high speed run down the Top of The World Trail in Whistler. Along for the ride was Norco’s Bryn Atkinson, who showed us the fastest lines down the mountain.

Sixer

“The Sixer takes to the trail with our integrated MIPS technology,resulting in a sleeker, closer-to-the-head fit that combines with their Float Fit system and proprietary Sweat Guide to ensure better comfort in a helmet. Goggle compatibility complete with a strap gripper at the rear of the helmet, adjustable visor height, integrated camera/light mount and a full hard shell rounds out the package. We’ve sweated every detail on the Sixer so that out on the trail, the only sweating you’ll have to worry about is your own.”

Super DH

Mips Spherical Technology

“MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) is a leading slip plane technology inside the helmet designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts. MIPS Spherical, found on the new Super DH, represents an evolved implementation of that technology which broadens the ability to manage impact energy.”
“In addition to the protection offered by MIPS Spherical, the Super DH is loaded with features; including a 360-degree wraparound, tool-free removable chin bar beefy enough to satisfy the rigors of ASTM 1952 testing, huge eyeglass and goggle friendly eye-port, adjustable-height visor, snap-in camera mount, Overbrow Ventilation and X-Static padding, and a quality fit that is second to none. The end result is uncompromising protection and performance, and unparalleled versatility. The Super DH is ready to take World Cup DH runs on the chin, bang out bike park laps until the chairlifts stop running, or settle into hours of backcountry uphill grinding in search of that perfect ribbon of high-consequence singletrack.”
