A True Winner

Size is personal as is shape, so on this, my short version is it runs true to size. Bell tends to be a bit rounder than Giro.

This helmet looks great, is cool/well vented and a very good value.

As new technology appears, I look at it and decide if it works or not. In helmets, MIPS was highly promoted about 2 years ago, for added protection, or so lab tests suggest. I'm a road rider so at least in road circles, I've yet to see a rider in a MIPS helmet of any brand. I'd guess its a mix of issues - as one review says, the added layer keeps the helmet hot. Prices are very high and they tend to weigh more.

While I'm concerned with safety, the MIPS safety claims are in lab tests and may be conducted by sellers, so I see it as neither proven nor disproven.

I really like the Bell on all fronts.
