I like to purchase a new mountain bike helmet every year this year is no different. The decision for my latest helmet was made around Christmas when my friend Greg, owner of Class Cycles in Southbury CT excitedly mentioned the Bell Super 2R Mips Helmet in an email with a link. When Greg talk I listen. The Bell Super 2R Mips Helmet has three really interesting features. The first is MIPS, the second is a GOPRO mount, the last and my favorite feature is the removable chin guard. The helmet converts from full face to open face in seconds by releasing three clips. To date it is the most comfortable and secure helmet I have ever placed on my head. Im looking forward to hitting the trail and providing a formal review. For those less inclined to order from your local bike shop or Amazon.com has it too. The price is fixed regardless of source
RAIL RIDING TRANSFORMED
True all-mountain performance is all about adaptability. It’s about being prepared to tackle any off-road challenge with confidence, comfort and style. With its game-changing removable chin-bar, the all-new Super 2R is two helmets in one. Remove and stow the chin-bar in your pack or on your rack on long climbs, then lock it in place when you’re ready to rip more aggressive terrain. It’s a quick and easy 1-2-3 set-up. Add in Overbrow Ventilation, TAG fit system and a new breakaway camera mount, and you have everything you need to conquer all-mountain terrain.
WHAT IS MIPS?
MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, which is a leading slip-plane technology inside the helmet designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts.
