Item # BEL007V

At the helm of helmets.

A relatively light, breathable, strong, MIPS-equipped full-face that morphs into a half-shell if and when you need it to? What more could an all-mountain rider need that you won't find in the Bell Super 2R MIPS Helmet?

The Super 2R's In-Mold polycarbonate shell is not only stronger and lighter than most on the market, but this model is equipped with the brain-saving MIPS technology pioneered by engineers and trauma specialists with the intention of dramatically reducing traumatic brain injuries in athletes — and it works. The semi-floating MIPS harness inside the helmet doesn't impede the helmet's fit, but it will likely save you a trip to the ER, thanks to the fact that it moved independently of the outer shell in the event of an impact. That little bit of movement can spare your head the violent jolts that often cause concussions or worse.

The helmet is also far more breathable than most, thanks to copious ventilation that serves to shave grams as much as promote airflow. The four Overbrow vents up front help enormously in this regard, too, keeping the wind moving over your dome seamless and consistently so you don't overheat. Bell innovation is proudly showcased in the Super 2R, too, particularly in its break-away camera mount, so either your camera nor your helmet get busted up in a crash, and the GoggleGuide adjustable visor's screws are the break-away type, as well, meaning all is not lost if you bail. But truly, the Super 2R's big party trick is that it's 2R chin bar is detachable, transforming this full-facer into an open-air half-shell when you want it to be. Ride lifts one day, and set out on an all-mountain epic the next. Whatever you're up for, the Super 2R is down.

Great Versatility

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this helmet. I have days that I'll pedal up and #exertforthedirt to enjoy the ride down, then I'll have days that I sit on the chairlift and ride down. This helmet is with me no matter what. It is very lightweight, but is sturdy enough to absorb a hard crash (first hand experience). The chin bar is a breeze to quickly snap on or off on the fly, and the camera mount on top is very clutch as well!

Reach out directly if you have any questions on this helmet or anything else out on the site.

Great Versatility

Super Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I recently got back into mountain biking after many years off. Decided I wanted the additional protection of a chin bar, even though I generally ride XC/All Mountain, because of a face plant years ago where I was lucky to only require a dozen stitches in my upper lip.

The helmet looks great - I got the matte black/blue aggression. The chin bar is easy to remove and install. The fit is good, I've found in the past that Bell helmets usually fit my head shape - rounder. It's heavier than my lightweight helmet I've got for road riding but lighter than my son's POC downhill helmet. I haven't been on a long ride yet, but don't expect the weight to be that noticeable.

The one downside - I find the cheek pads are very tight on my face. Fortunately, there is velcro along the side of the pockets so I've removed the thick softer foam and not my face isn't being squished. It's a bit loose so I'll either cut down the foam pads or find some other thinner foam to fit in there. If they'd included different thickness pads for the cheeks then I'd definitely give this helmet a 5.

great helmet

I gave this as a gift, but my buddy cannot stop raving about this helmet. From being light, venting well, and with full face protection if/when you need it, this fits all the bills. Excellent helmet

More Flexibility on your biking day

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great beginner-helmet, when you're just starting to bike or when you want to save on storage room in your daypack or car!

I bought this helmet about a year ago, because I wanted to save storage room, but needed biking helmets for different purposes. With this helmet I can spontaneously decide if I want to do some cross-country riding, easy downhill or if I want to "hit it hard". Depending on my choice of trail I can either put the full face part on, or just leave it in my daypack .

I bought a size M helmet, what seemed to fit, when I had the full face part on. The mouth protection is further away from my face than what I am normally used to from a full-face-helmet. Without the full face part it was a little too big and looks like a huge egg-shell on my head :-D

Next time I would buy it smaller or just buy two helmets for each use. But back when I was a beginner rider and didn't know what I was looking for in a helmet, this was a good way to go.

More Flexibility on your biking day

Great helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: Medium

Bought this for a MTB all mountain / DH bike trip. Put it on and immediately said fk it is way too narrow! I always get a M helmet! Came back later and took a closer look. So I easily remove the inside web bit, four rubber fastners. I discovered two very hard pieces of plastic with some padding on each side. These were causing the problem. I simply peeled them off, put the webbing back on and it fitted like a glove. Saying that I probably voided the warranty. My wife was just about ok with hers but after about an hour of riding she also removed these two pads. Other than that it is a great helmet, the chin bar bit is easily removable and you can run a strap through it on your back pack when climbing etc.

I had the same fit issue. I also peeled off the two hard pads that were stuck to the helmet w/ adhesive. Totally fits now. Thanks!

Customer Review

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

One of my customers, Dan, sent me this input on the helmet so that you may get a first hand opinion he gave me permission to post it. Thank you, Dan!

"I used the Bell Super 2R MIPS helmet yesterday to ride Falls Creek Washington. It was very comfortable, and the chin-bar is easily attached/detached quickly and securely. There are some scary possibilities on that particular trail to end up over the handlebars, so the added safety features, combined with comfort of this product were great.

Three adaptations that new users will need to address with the addition of using a chin-bar.
1. Be careful how you choose to spit that errant bug out as you are bombing downhill….the bug and the saliva may end up on the inside of the chin-bar if your projection angle is not just right .
2. No more of those on-the-fly nose blowing procedures that runners and bikers use to clear their airways to improve oxygen/air flow .
3. How the heck do you manage your hydration tube without totally distracting yourself from paying attention to the next root/rock/drop while desperately trying to moisten your parched throat? I am still working that one out!

Overall, love the product…..love the service…..love the company,"

Saved my face and my life

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wife asked me to get a full face after a friend of ours wrecked their face on an MTB. I reluctantly got this, but I'm glad I did. I love detachable face mask for long climbs or chill riding, but when I want to hit a DH section hard, the added protection definitely instills more confidence. Days after purchasing this helmet, I had a pretty silly crash where I landed on the side of my head where there just happened to be a pointy rock protruding. Took a direct hit just above the left temple and then slid across the rock scraping down the face mask. I had a mild concussion, but I'd probably be dead without the helmet and would surely have a mangled face. Its comfortable enough and 100% worth the added "inconvenience" of extra gear / weight. Even if you don't ride hard, this accident taught me that freak situations do happen on the trails and the more protection the better! I immediately purchased the same helmet as a replacement.

Does this helmet have any certifications?

Hey Jay - This Super 2R MIPS Helmet has the following certifications: EN 1078, CPSC Bicycle. Plus it comes with MIPS technology which is designed to better protect your brain in an impact. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

- Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead - klivingston@backcountry.com - 801-736-4337

Can this helmet be used with an Atlas neck brace and still provide neck protection?

Hey Tatum,

The Super 2r is a great helmet for All Mountain/Enduro style riding and definitely gives more confidence pinning it down some burly trails, but wasn't designed to be paired with a neck brace. I would recommend a fullface helmet that is certified for downhill (like the Troy Lee Design D3 helmet) if you're looking to match it with a neckbrace.

Great Versatile Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I was looking for a helmet, I wanted a full face helmet that can really breathe. I live in Florida which means it is hot year round. With a traditional full face helmet, you heat up so fast that I would constantly have to take it off and be wary of overheating.
I unclip the chin bar when I am riding trails that I am comfortable with. I use the chin bar when I go on trails for the first time or technical trails. Putting the chin bar makes me more confident to do wooden bridges, jumps, and barrel down steep hills.
I got a medium size and it fit great. Im 5'10 with athletic body type and haven't had a problem with the size. The adjuster on the back makes it stick well to your head as well as the MIPS system.
The GoPro mount on the top is a little shaky at times but it works very well. I think next I need a stabilizer so i can capture smooth footage.
I would highly recommend this helmet to someone who wants versatility and also lives in a hotter environment like Florida.

Stuck on the size cusp

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The helmet itself is great. Bell came up with a great design concept and it really makes sense as an upgrade to have a detachable mask when you are descending something burly. Fortunately I've not had to test this feature out in person, the last time I did a face-first slide I wound up with my arm in a cast and ended up buying this upgrade.

My only gripe is the sizing. I'm exactly between sizes on both Poc and Bell helmets and it's a universal frustration for me. The M is too snug and I look like a bobble head in the L. I wish there was more crossover sizing available (especially when products are around for a second year) since injection molds are an extremely high margin item.

Great gift for a biker

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Got this for my Dad and he absolutely loves it! he feels confident and comfort while ridding. and by the other reviews this helmet is pretty amazing and helped me find that perfect gift.

The Best for Enduro

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

If you love Enduro you'll need this helmet, the removable chin guard is just awesome and it's light that you can forget that you have it in your head. But the best part is that it makes you look like a Pro.

The Best for Enduro

Super versatile

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Sits a little crooked but that's probably just my head. Comfortable fit and breaths well. The chin guard comes in handy for more extreme cross-country style riding (not rated for downhill due to the vents) and is a nice bonus in cooler weather. I wear a balaclava under mine. Most motocross goggles fit just fine as well.

A total game changer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had recently crashed on my new 29er which resulted in a broken helmet, so I was in the market for something new. The possibilities seemed endless in the search for the perfect new helmet and my only desire was to find a more mountain biking specific helmet. There were plenty of options for helmets that offered more protection for the back of your head, but then my friend mentioned the super 2r.
I felt that a full face helmet would be unnecessary at first and almost disregarded his suggestion. I mean, how many times have a smashed my face into the ground? Very few, but the possibility of that scenario unfolding before my eyes made me think about how lucky I have been thus far. After thinking overmy options for a few minutes, the choice seemed obvious. This is by no means a fully rated full-face helmet, but its removable chin bar is absolutely fantastic. I ride much more confidently after slapping on the chin bar and have found it very easy to attach while wearing the helmet.
My biggest concern was my glasses fogging up and others mentioning that this helmet was a bit warmer than most. I have not found it to change the way my glasses fog up whatsoever.

Not ASTM F1952 certified

    This helmet SHOULD NOT be used for any situation in which you need a full face helmet. It is not ASTM F1952 certified, which is the standard for DH/FR helmets. I'd even say it was irresponsible of Bell to put this on the market, as it looks like a real DH helmet but is definitely not.

    Thanks Sire! Nice to know the standard. ASTM F1952
