Safe and fun
on 15 March 2010
Bell have an excellent reputation for safe helmets - I had one of their motorcycle helmets. This helmet was bought for my teenage daughter for cycling. The standard type of bicycle safety helmet is "weird" and she is not keen on wearing it. However this helmet looks more BMX or Skate Board style and the "critters" design on it makes it colourful and fun to look at.
The outside ABS plastic shell will be more robust than a standard cycling helmet.
Two thicknesses of the pads which stick on with velcro at side, front and rear are supplied to make it easy to change the size of head it will fit.
Also the shell comes down further down the back of the head and at the side over the temples so looks more protective than the standard size of bicycle helmet which seem to be mostly polystyrene padding.
