Description

Don't get rung.

Affordable helmets are great in practice, but you don't want to compromise safety or fit just to save a few bucks. You won't have to with Bell's Array Helmet, which sports tech that was originally developed for Bell's top-shelf Volt but with a price tag that's seriously friendly. The Fusion In-Mold Microshell protects your noggin without weighing you down, and the TAG fit system adjusts both vertically and horizontally so you can get a fit that conforms perfectly to your head. There are 24 vents that keep your brain nice and breezy and, at just 340g, the Array won't turn every climb into a top-heavy slog.

  • Fusion In-Mold Microshell
  • Internal reinforcement
  • TAG fit system
  • 24 passive vents

Amazing fit

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There have been a few times when I have left the house and had to reach up to make sure I put this helmet on. It's way comfortable in the best way - you literally forget you have it on. Combine that with easy adjustability for a perfect fit, and you have everything you need in a bike helmet. Great price for a really good helmet.

Great helmet for recreational riders

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this helmet since our family all ride now and we didn't have enough helmets. I love the color pink, so this was perfect. It is lightweight, but sturdy, and easy to adjust for a proper fit. The ventilation is great and it is a great value for the price.

Where do you wear your Array helmet?

Early season Wasatch Crest trail high above the resorts in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah is my favorite trail and always glad for a helmet. I've slowed down a bit in my older years but hammering over the spine is still a joy and knowing my partial crazy brain is protected gives me a little more confidence.

Great helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really like my new helmet. After comparing prices and weight of helmets I thought this was a great buy. I have read people's reviews and they say things like, "I hardly know the helmet is on my head." Well that is how I feel about the Array. Totally recommend this to anyone.

Great Budget Head Protection

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used many high end brain buckets, grabbed this one while it was on sale and love it. Plenty of venting and the fit system makes it easy to properly snug it down.

Yea, it may weigh a few more grams than those high dollar ones, but hey just go on a diet and loose a pound or two and you'll have a couple of twenty's for some swill.

You can't go wrong with this helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Unless you're bombing down hills in a full Downhill setup, this helmet will do it all. It's got large air channels and fits great with the adjustable fit system.

Favorite Bell!

The Array isn't the lightest out there, but in terms of fit, appearance and price point, it is hard to beat. The silver/lime is a nice color option, too! I would definitely recommend the Array, and plan to buy the same helmet again in the coming months.

Bell Array Helmet

I really like my new helmet. After comparing prices and weight of helmets I thought this was a great buy. I have read people's reviews and they say things like, "I hardly know the helmet is on my head." Well that is how I feel about the Array. Totally recommend this to anyone. I have a had Bell Sweep helmets in the past and I like this one much better.

Do the vents on this helmet allow you to...

Do the vents on this helmet allow you to store your sunglasses in them when you're not wearing them?

Responded on

The Array is a great helmet, no helmet store sunglasses as good as a jersey pocket. Honestly it depends more on the sunglass model than helmet.

Array vs Influx

For some reason I think Bell helmets fit my head better than other brands. I've used a lower priced Influx for several years. I wanted a flashier helmet, and especially liked the black/yellow ones which I could get with the Array. I haven't had the Array very long and haven't ridden in the heat of summer yet. So far I can't say that the Array is more comfortable or lighter than the Influx. I haven't noticed any significant advantage of the TAG system over the GPS. Still, I like the way the Array fits and looks and am happy I bought it. FYI, I am an old fart and not a racer by any stretch.

I wear a 71/8 hat. What would that be in the Bell Array? S, M, L The fitting system did not work when I tried it. Thank You , Gary

Responded on

A 7 1/8 hat size is about 56-57cm. That would mean you will want a M in this helmet.

Array

It's a nice helmet. I bought a Specialized before this for about $20 less that is Snell rated, which this one is not. It's fit is good. The finish isn't as good as my cheaper helmet. All in all not a bad helmet. I think this one has better airflow, which is good on these 100+ degree days.

crashed it

I am pretty sure your Array helmet saved me from an extended stay in the hospital. It took a strong impact, cracked the foam, but my noggin was unaffected. The amount of scuffing on the shell, suggested it was a big impact. The fit system seemed to distribute the impact so I didnt realize how severe it had been till inspected the helmet. Thanks Bell!

Does this helmet feel heavy on the head?

Does this helmet feel heavy on the head?

Responded on

Not from what I experienced. I don't own it but I've tried a few on and it felt pretty good to me. It's not THEE lightest of the Bell line but it is up there with some of the best (I think the array is their first or second model down from the 250 dollar ones.

Responded on

No. Ultra light, I would consider this best in class for weight, price and styling.

Responded on

I wouldn't say ultralight but it is a bit on the heavy side. My Array says 360g on the inside sticker not the 286g advertised. Maybe that is for the small size? My $65 Furio feels lighter.

Great Helmet

I have both a 2009 Volt and Array and I like the Array a little better. I bought the Volt to replace a 2006 Sweep R. I loved the Sweep and figured the Volt to be an upgrade and although the Volt is a better helmet, it didn't fit as comfortable as my old Sweep. I bought the Array because neither the Sweep nor Volt made a helmet with a yellow and black pattern. Both helmets weigh about the same and fit about the same although there is a little more padding in the Volt. The Array appears to have a lower and sleeker profile and fits more comfortably on my noggin. The Array is also nearly half off the price of the Volt. Knowing what I know now, I would buy the Array over the Volt or Sweep, the Array is that comfortable and sleek. Hope this review helps everyone.

Great choice

A bit more low-profile and less gaudy than most high end helmets. I like the fit system a lot, and it has plenty of vents. Probably not for weight wienies or avant garde fashionistas, but you get a fine high-end helmet at a mid-range price. A great helmet overall.

Very Nice

I had a cheaper Giro before this one and while both would protect the noggin if needed, the Bell does it comfortably and with style. It honestly feels like you are wearing a hat after a few minutes and the straps are pretty comfy too. Good vents, good helmet.
