Making the 2016 BikeExchange Top Bike Product Shortlist - the Bell Super 2R.
If ever there was a product that has slid perfectly into its niche market, it would have to be the Bell Super 2R. Such has been the popularity of this versatile helmet, rival brands have since been scrambling to release their own version to desperately claw back the enduro crowd.
With the steady growth in all-mountain or enduro style riding and racing, Bell went about creating the one product almost every rider was dreaming about. When the trails get a little more rugged, the additional protection of a full face helmet without the hindrance and weight is welcomed. With a surprisingly easy to operate clip system, you can have the chin bar on or off at a moment’s notice, which may be crucial when you are scrambling to beat the time limit on your transition stages.
With the improvements in ride and handling on bikes progressing so rapidly, riding speeds are becoming higher, which now requires a bit more thought into what’s protecting your head. The fit on the Super is not only secure, but offers plenty of protection for the side and rear of your most precious asset. You’ll notice the feeling of the helmet enveloping your whole head instantly, which is reassuring when you’re riding technical trails.
Bell have all bases covered with loud and muted colours simultaneously, as well as a full selection of sizes. With the high level of protection and the brilliant versatility it affords, it’s impossible to leave this helmet off our top list for 2016.
