In the event of winning, don't be surprised.

On a certain level, the only difference between a road race and a cross-country mountain bike race is the dirt below the tires — the basic idea is still to push your cardiovascular limit as much as possible, at the right time, to cross the line first. For that reason, the Bell Event XC Helmet is identical to the standard Event road helmet, with the exception of a repositionable visor attached to it to block out the sun, push aside branches, and fend off a bit of mud and dirt that may rain down after being kicked up by the rider in front of you.

The Event helmet is made of a lightweight foam with an In-Mold polycarbonate shell, a unified structural piece that absorbs shock and protects your head better than simple joint molding, as you'll find on most less-expensive helmets. The Event uses Bell's TAG (Twin Axis Gear) fit system so you can dial in the right fit along two different adjustment points: the diameter of the retention system snd its position in the helmet, so you can adjust the helmet to your head and not have it sit tilted too far forward or backward. The Overbrow ventilation system helps pull cool air into the front of the helmet and push warm air out the back, keeping heads comfortable, even on hot days.

Nice design and great protection

    I bough this as a gift for my mom, she loves it. It looks great and the matte black looks good with any jersey that you might have.

    Good price point

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a relatively inexpensive helmet that does a great job of protecting the ole brain bucket. I have used it almost daily for mountain biking and commuting. It is very comfortable and breathes great. I put that to the real test this past week with our 100+ degree heat streak. (maybe I should think about cleaning the pads)

    Fits perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I love this helmet design, It fits perfect (my head circumference is 50cm) and it does not move; I used it on summer days and the ventilation worked as a charm, definitely worth the price.

    Fits perfect

    Safety first.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Haven't worn it in the blistering months of summer yet but am pretty darn sure it will be great. I was worried that the black one would get way too hot in the sun but there is adequate ventilation. It is comfortable, easy to adjust, and not to hard on the eyes. The visor is a real tempting chew toy for pups so keep your eye on it.

    If you are looking for a good helmet that does the job at a reasonable price this is a great choice.
