Description

A helmet on the far end of the Bell curve.

The Bell Variant Bike Helmet deviates from the standard helmet, delivering a host of high-end features in a lightweight, comfortable package. Thanks to Bell’s Fusion Microshell construction throughout, the Variant offers a high degree of durability and safety. Internal reinforcements also allow Bell to take off some weight and build in more groovy-looking vents to keep your noggin cool while you’re climbing towards the ridge. Dial in the fit of the helmet with the Geared Positioning System, cam-lock strap levers, and adjustable visor.

This is a good helmet

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

Good helmet, good fit, functional, good price. Bell is a good brand.

Works great - incredibly adjustable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the second Variant helmet I've purchased for my kids. The sizing is incredible...it fits my head as an adult as well as my 8 year old's head. Very comfortable, kids have worn it all summer.

Weird fit, good protection

I agree with previous reviewers that this helmet sits high, but it is very comfortable and durable. I took a hard fall on the Wasatch Crest trail a few weeks ago, going pretty fast around a washed-out right turn. I hit the right side of my head pretty hard on the trail, then slid (on my helmet/shoulder) off the side into some rocks. Pretty bad headache for about ten minutes, but no damage to my head, and the helmet is just has a few minor scratches and dents. Still getting a new one that fits better.

The fit sucks

I had been wearing this helmet for a couple of years. Decided to buy a new helmet due to the smell of my bell variant. Wow, the fit of this helmet sucks! I had no idea how bad this helmet fit until I got a new one. This helmet was always falling down and I had to push the front up. It didn't matter how tight on my head this helmet was it would always fall down. don't buy this helmet, it sucks.

Sits high on head

This helmet is great quality and very comfortable, but it sits too high on my head for my liking. Total mushroom head and looks dumb. I know looking good has nothing to do with safety, but they do make helmets that sit lower on your head and pritect it as well.
