Bell Volt Road Helmet 2013
A regular on the Pro Tour, the Volt is an amazing combination of massive ventilation, svelte weight, and high-tech comfort for road or mountain. Exclusively for the Volt, Bell engineers created an airflow matrix that mixes the deeply sculpted Channeled Ventilation ducts with specially designed constriction channels that use the Venturi Effect to increase airflow rates. Woven with real silver fibers, X-Static Padding is a quick-drying material that inhibits growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi while keeping you cooler than standard comfort pads.
This is not just a road helmet, its for MTB too. Included is a visor. Very sturdy but not very heavy. Weighs at around 320 lbs., you wont notice it when wearing the bell. Excellent fit, adjustable, nice looking and knowing it was used in Tour de France few years ago, it makes you confident enough that it should be able to do its purpose when the need arises. X-static pads are very good at retaining sweat minimizing drips, prevents smell, and provides comfort. Excellent air flow channels will surely ventilate your head even on hot summer days. An EXCELLENT helmet. You should get one.
The helmet is true in size and fits well. The adjustable fit is a nice feature that allows one to wear a skull cap at the start of the ride, and remove it as it gets warmer later in the day. The many vents keep the head cool even in the hotter days of summer. A product to own.
