Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnG01 Good quality, lasted well, did its job in a big crash.
This helmet has been regularly used for the last 12 months - with no problems at all. Was crash-tested (destroyed) today, the helmet did its job very well and I've just ordered another ...

Truly shoddily finished helmet. All the velcro pads came unstuck after about 10 rides,poor quality adhesive so they won't stay put and I have had to superglue them in place.
To be fair I've had Bell helmets before and never had any trouble so maybe I've just been unlucky with this particular item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous All you want from a lid
I've been wearing one of these for a long time (the date stamped inside says 2003) and I like it so much I also bought the Bell Alchera which is identical expect for the addition of a peak which suits better for commuting & off-road.
Its a great fit for my head, its light, well ventilated, and not too expensive compared with some other models. What more could you ask for?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Made in China, poor quality control, moulding defects
These helmets are made in China with poor quality control. Mine had a moulding defect making it dangerous to wear! My helmet had a moulding defect that caused a knob 5mm think and 1.5 cm in dia in the crown of the helmet. It would have been fatal in an accident.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Fits well, protects well
I've been using this helmet for a couple of years, and mainly for one reason: it fits so great. Sure, it's a bonus that the ventilation is good but it's still the fitting that made me buy this helmet in the first place. Recently I had an accident on a trail ride where I went down pretty hard and my head slammed into the ground. The helmet foam cracked but my head was 100% protected. This helmet definitely saved me from severe head trauma. I can highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for good protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good price, but a few cons
Good price, good vents, good fit, but a few cons:
- I feel a pressure point at the top of my head
- There isn't much padding on the forehead, which means I may have to wear something underneath to catch sweat on hot MTB days
- The helmet pulls my hair when I remove it

A priceworthy helmet, with good airvent and it´s light. Rides both MTB and road and it works. Tried on an Array at my bikepusher but it didn´t feel as good. One little minus! The placement and size of the air ventholes makes it difficult to fix your glasses in the helmet.
