First Look: Bell's $95 MIPS Trail Helmet, The 4Forty 7

Bell has launched an affordable and capable MTB trail helmet featuring MIPS technology - the 4Forty. Available in seven colors and S, M, L and XL sizes, the 4Forty has 15 vents, Bell's GoggleGuide is an easily-adjusted visor that gets out of the way for those of you who run goggles. Push up the visor and put up your goggles after a ride or run, hassle-free. Additionally, the Sweat Guide keeps moisture on the brow pad from dripping into your face or eyewear. It meets CPSC Bicycle and CE EN1078 certifications. There's a non-MIPS version available for only $75, too.

To purchase the 4Forty, hit up BellHelmets.com for more info.

    given that everyone's head is different, take this w/ a grain of salt b/c it may not apply to you, but i felt like the 4forty was actually a little more comfy than the A1 that i have. not a lot, but it fit me well.

    Thanks. The A1 is the ONLY helmet that fits my weird melon, so I'll have to check this out.

    Same here and two helmets that fit me well are the A1 and POC trabec. Bell helmets I've tried don't fit me.
