Skate helmets have received a lot of love over the past few years in many different sports. They have a clean, classic look, but they don't have the greatest reputation for comfort. That's about to change, though, with the introduction of the Bell Segment Helmet.
The reason that skate-style helmets work so well is the same reason they aren't usually all that comfortable: the ABS hard shell. The folks at Bell have found a way to use the ABS shell so that it still offers that hard shell protection, but it's flexible to conform to the shape of your head. They connect interior EPS foam segments with a reinforcing skeleton that allows everything to flex. Not only does this mean greater comfort, but it offers better protection by eliminating the gaps between your helmet and your head in an ill-fitting helmet.
The Segment sports eight vents to allow air to flow freely around your head to keep it cool and dry. It's also lightweight–less than a pound–which adds to the comfort.
The Bell Segment Helmet is availbale in 3 sizes, S, M, and L. It comes in nine different color options: Matte Blue/Green Jimbo Phillips Melting Heads, Matte Titanium Taylor Reeve Afterparty, Matte Black, Matte Grey, Blue, Matte Turquoise, Burnt Orange, Matte Bone, and Matte Gray/Black Skratch 54.
