Bell Super sets the new standard in all-mountain helmets
SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. – In order to meet the demands of the all-mountain trail ride and enduro racing scenes, Bell has released the Super, a versatile performer with specific features for this burgeoning style of riding. Incorporating an innovated eyewear management system along with a clever, integrated break-away camera mount and advanced ventilation matrix, the Super is the perfect compliment to the do-anything breed of all-mountain bikes (http://www.bellhelmets.com/cycling/helmets/).
Using input from Bell’s stable of sponsored riders and skunk work rippers, Bell came up with a purpose-built package for aggressive riders who need the versatility to go from XC-style climbs to near DH descents and everything in between. Key features include:
Integrated Camera Mount makes capturing the ride hassle-free with a removable mount that seamlessly affixes a GoPro camera.
GoggleGuideTM Adjustable Visor System allows riders to manage their eyewear with minimal intrusion into the ride. The flexible system accommodates both goggles and sport glasses and works either with the visor installed or without using the included goggle retention arms.
Overbrow VentilationTM works in concert with 25 vents to usher cool air over the head through four intake ports on the helmet brow.
The Speed DialTM Fit System is designed to work with helmets that have lower rear coverage. This new system cradles the head and creates a glove-like fit with the turn of a dial.
Bell took some influence from early 3/4 coverage motorcycle design and aired it out for a distinctive profile that takes a classic profile and adds a contemporary functionality to it. Accentuating the distinctive look are a bevy of graphic options from the high-vis Bright Green, to the classic racing stripe of the Black/White star to the Artist Series “Afterparty” by Taylor Reeve.
The Super is available May 2013 for $125.00 MSRP. Please see the following product data sheet for additional specifications. For high-resolution images, please click: http://bit.ly/2013BellSuperHiRes.
