Whether you're a regular on the enduro racing circuit or prefer getting rowdy on the trails without a clock nearby, chances are good your helmet's seen some abuse over the years. When your current model earns a crack big enough to make you pause, swap it out for the Bell Super 3R MIPS Men's Helmet instead, and launch into serious lines wearing MIPS technology and full-face protection.
When you're rallying along desert slickrock below cloudless skies, the last thing you need is a helmet trapping the heat. Fortunately, enduro lids have come a long way in recent years, and Bell punched out ventilation wherever it could in the Super 3R without compromising the helmet's structural integrity. Brow channels, helmet vents, and chin guard vents all keep air moving and save you from overheating when the sun's overhead.
While the In-Mold shell protects against direct impacts, Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) technology helps absorb and diffuse indirect or oblique forces. MIPS is a thin inner basket sits more subtly on the inside of the helmet. During certain crashes, this slim layer rotates slightly to absorb rotational forces.
In addition to allover protection, Bell didn't forget about smaller features on the Super 3R as well. It gave the integrated camera and light mount a breakaway design. Bell also constructed the entire helmet with breakaway screws for quick removal in case of a more serious crash. Leaning more towards convenience, the adjustable visor integrates with a range of goggles, and X-Static padding creates a cozy fit between your noggin and the shell. The chin bar is removable too; stash it at camp when you're heading out on an easy trail ride, and bring it with you for rowdier days that involve less climbing.
