Bell Slant Universal Helmet 2012
Versatile, stylish and affordable, the Slant is an exceptional helmet at an amazing price. Features 21 channeled vents, a Fusion In-Mold Microshell, ErgoDial fit system, easy-adjust Cam-lock strap levers, and a Blade visor.
Specially designed ventilation channels on the interior of the helmet's liner bring cool air in through the front, pass it over the head and flushes warm air out of the rear ports. You'll find some form of this feature on almost all Bell helmets, but Bell's higher end helmets feature deeply sculpted channels that keep air moving whether you're bombing it at 30 mph, or huffing it uphill at single digit speed.
Fusion In-Mold Microshell
In-molding is the process of bonding the helmet's Microshell to its EPS foam layer to provide a sturdier, more solid helmet. The EPS foam is shot into the thin Microshell cap when it is in the mold rather than formed separately and taped on later. This process was pioneered by Bell and is now the industry-wide standard for all high-end helmets. It's now standard on all Bell adult and child helmets.
Bell's Cam-Lock strap levers make it easy to adjust the straps around your ears. Simply open the cam…position comfortably and close the lever. Done.
The ErgoDial Fit System brings one-handed adjustments to Bell's Universal Fit helmets. A simple press of the button and slide of the dial brings firm, snug and comfy stability.
Bell's Blade visor mixes dramatic looks with top-notch functionality. Horizontal I-beam pins keep the visor in place with minimal intrusion on the helmet surface. Bell ellipse logo plugs are included to give the helmet a seamless look when the visor is detached.
Got this helmet yesterday and it is very well made and comfortable to wear sure you could go drop $200 on what most people would call a better helmet but for this price and quality I think I will just save my money and use it for other riding gear.
I have owned my Bell Slant since 2010. It's time to replace it due to a crash. It fits me perfect and since the price fits my wallet, I will be purchasing another Bell Slant helmet soon.
