Bell is a child company from the big brand BRG Sports, formerly known as Easton-Bell Sports. Easton is a manufacturer, marketer, and distributor of sporting equipment ranging from Archery, baseball, softball, hockey, and of course motorcycle helmets and equipment. Easton has their headquarters in lovely southern California and more specifically Van Nuys. The Bell Sports division has their own headquarters in Rantoul, Illinois where they do all their distributing. Bell Sports started out in 1923 as an auto parts dealer and created their first race car helmet in 1954. Over 20 years later, after making their first helmet, for a race car, Bell Auto Parts decided to make their first bicycle helmet in 1975. These bicycle helmets became a hit and just 5 short years later Bell decided to merge with Riddell to form Bell-Riddell Inc. This relationship lasted for over 10 years before they decided to sell and split the company into two entities Bell Helmets and Bell Sports. After playing this company split game for an additional 11 years, Bell Sports bought out Bell Helmets creating one company again. As for the latest change in ownership and company names, Bell Racing Europe purchased Bell Racing USA and reunited the auto racing activities again under one company and ownership. Bell also have been active in the community by contributing to safety public instruction. They participate in “Safe Kids Ready to Roll” programs across the USA teaching kids safety with bicycles and wheel-related toys.

Thes are made for the scooter riders, or the motorcycle riders out there that look forward to their Saturday or Sunday cruise. With tremendous air flow becuase your whole face is exposed, you will not suffer from breathablility. Also be aware that half helmets also do not offer the full range of protection that full face helmets do. So if you want to be super safe with your protection I would avoid these style of helmets.

Last Bell have made their cheapest motorcycle helmet with their Shorty line. These have a price point around $70 and will be found mostly on scooter riders.

Riding a motorcycle is highly dangerous, and as a previous racer and an avid motocross rider I know that the odds are against you and eventually you will find yourself face down in the dirt, or waking up on the side of the track without any recollection of what happened.
Bell Helmet Pricing
Starting off with the Bell motocross helmets, these helmets may be costly, but their price is only a factor of their performance. The Moto-9 helmets that Bell produces are some of the best on the market and feature state of the art technological advancements that make them a leading motocross helmet. Right now, you can find some of their newest and most expensive helmets on sale or at discounted prices here at BTO Sports. This limited time offer will not last so ensure you shop smart and find the ones that have the most band for the buck; one of which is the Pro Circuit Monster replica MX- 9 helmet. This helmet is an identical race performance helmet that has been used by the professional Pro Circuit Kawasaki team in countless AMA Supercross and Motocross races.
Here is a quick note for you individuals who think that the most expensive helmet is the best helmet to wear. The best helmet does not require you to spend the most money! What it does require is proper fitment of the riders head to ensure your head does not move around inside the helmet which can cause serious brain trauma in the case of a high impact crash. When trying on helmets, it is crucial to understand how it moves on your head…IT SHOULDN’T! the helmet and your head should be one, moving in unison and not having any give when you wiggle your head to the left or right, or up and down. When finding the right one, it is crucial to try one more than 2 different brands and see how their shell shape, cheek pads, and fitment are all different, or in some cases the same. Not ever helmet is going to have the same sizing, depth, or circular fitment, and with that being said, it is important to note which helmets fit your head shape the best.
Bell Helmet Technology
Helmets like Troy Lee Designs, Fox , and Shoei have a similar size and shell shape so I, personally, am able to interchange these helmets and know that no matter which one I put on, they will protect me the best. I have tried on Bell helmets and I have noticed that their shell depth is slightly lower than the others as I feel the helmet almost obstructs my view with goggles on. It is important to realize these factors before ordering a helmet on line. It is highly advised to go to your local motocross shop and try on a few to get familiar with the shape, sizing, and depth of the helmet. Sometimes you may feel like the helmet fits too snug and puts pressure on your cheeks which is normal as the cheek pads will break in within a couple rides. Although it is a fine line to cross, if your helmet is too tight you will get a headache within minutes and have one of the most uncomfortable rides of your life.
Moving on to the Bell Moto-9 helmets, the Carbon Flex Syndrome helmet is by far one of the best on the market as of today. With great technological advances like the MERS system, fully ventilated EPS lined chinbar, a vented roost guard, a velocity flow ventilation system, and the lightweight composite carbon shell, this helmet is a class leading Bell moto-9. The selling point on this helmet is the MERS system which is being integrated more and more into almost every motocross helmet. MERS stands for Magnefusion Emergency Release System. This system has been integrated into helmets as it is an important feature to allow emergency response teams such as paramedics, and EMTs to remove the rider’s helmet without having to move is head or neck. The System works by removing the two magnetic cheek pads inside the helmet, and exposing the air bladders of the MERS. The EMTs are able to fill the bladders with air and slowly lift the helmet off the rider without having to make unnecessary movements.
Another piece of technology that is being incorporated into moto helmets these days is an advancement called MIPS. MIPS is a Multi-directional Impact Protection System that reduces the stress from high impacts that is typically transferred directly to the brain. With MIPS technology, the helmet’s shell has space to move allowing it to dissipate the blow into other regions of the helmet ultimately reducing the amount of tension and stress the brain would normally receive. This system has been proven by doctors and put through rigors tests that have proven this system to work. Trusted by doctors who put their love and passion into protecting riders around the world, the MIPS technology is one for the record books.
