Get on the safety train.

Bell's Sanction Full-Face Helmet was originally designed as a lightweight domepiece for the groms, but it proved so popular that Bell sized it up to suit dirt-jumping, BMX-riding adults. It's lighter and sleeker than full-faces meant for DH mountain biking, but has a hard-laminated fiberglass shell and EVA foam padding to save your skull from hard bails. A moto-inspired mouth guard protects your pretty-boy looks, and channeled ventilation helps keep your noggin cool when you're ripping pump tracks or dialing in your tail whips.

Solid

Great size, fits well and very light. I haven't taken in out yet but it fits great and the goggles sit in there just perfect. Great for the price.

Great Dome Protector

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Lightweight and fits great. Prefer the quick release buckle. Minor detail, but liked that it came in flat black.
Great Helmet for the price!

Awesome

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Super light- as light as my buddies carbon, or lighter.
Super comfy- seems true to size
The buckle strap may not be as strong as a friction loop thing, but it's 10x's easier. pretty rare that i'll crash and test the buckle strength though.

Great helmet no regrets I love the buckle strap instead of having to weave it through.
for the price I would totally choose this over the other cheap full face helmets.

Awesome helmet, Awesome price

This helmet is amazing for the price! Although it does get a little hot, its not that bad. I got red and black one, and its one of the sweetest helments ive ever seen

Good Deal, Looks Great!

Great helmet. I have tried on many and the other helmet brands just don't fit my head right. I pretty much only wear this when I'm doing hard core stuff, but I have it in my equipment bag and bring it with me everytime I go riding. THat way I have it on hand if I'm feeling daring. I also use it for night riding and if it is really windy or nasty outside. It does get a little hot after extended climbs... but it's not really intended for that.

Good Deal, Looks Great!

First Full Face Helmet

I was very pleased with this helmet. The construction is fantastic for the price. I briefly owned another full face helmet I bought from Hn'R, a much more expensive one and returned it due to weight and lack of good ventilation.
This helmet is actually so lightweight, I almost forgot it was there. Never felt like my head was being weighed down.
The ventilation is also something that surprised me. with 15 vents, the airflow feels great when you're riding, and never felt too hot.
The Large size is quite snug on my 59cm dome, and I could see people with larger heads finding it too tight.
Overall, for the price, this is one great helmet. I would highly recommend it as a first full face helmet or replacement for an old one.

Worth it!

Great helmet! Works great and isn't too heavy. Fits a little snug so don't round up too much with the sizes. Great price too!

Cons: a little bit on the heavy side, but reasonable.
