Get Great Value And Graphics With This Helmet

The Good:

First - It's a BELL helmet. They're a leader in the helmet industry, not just for bikes, but just about every type of helmet there is.
Second - To compliment the great fit and protective features, the graphics are finally up to snuff. Not sure what made BELL finally decide to make helmets that look good, but someone in the arts and crafts department knows what their doing. Thanks for that.

The Bad:

Nothing is wrong here. The price is great, the fit is great, and it looks good. Check, check, and check...

Overall Review:

If you're looking to save around $50 over the premium lids, this is the helmet. You can also check out the Giro Hex, also a great lid for the $.

Great All-mountain lid

The Good:

The helmet is really light and has a lot of adjustability for each size via the TAG fit system. One thing i noticed right away was the breathability of this helmet, I could actually tell a difference between this lid and my old one and it was clearly evident that air flow was a lot better in this lid. So for hot days or days when you are not just running DH this is a great helmet.

The Bad:

I cant find much negatives on this helmet, its durable and the fit is great.

Overall Review:

Helmet choice will probably boil down to personal preference in terms of fit, Bell helmets seem to fit me well so I like these. The Variant is nice and light and offers a lot of breathability. Good color choices as well. Strongly recommend as a all mountain or XC helmet.
