Tested: Bell Super 2R Helmet 2

Since we now have bikes that rip the downs while climbing like goats, it seems obvious that there is also a need for a helmet that won't get too hot and cumbersome on the way up all while offering enough protection to get properly rowdy on the way down. Bell's new Super R2 does exactly that, and we're here to share our impressions of it after a bit of testing.

Stevie Smith - How Far Does the Trail Go?

Being injured is a good time to reflect however, and listening to Stevie talk about his career points to a new maturity and lots of motivation - the rest of the field has been warned!
