The promise of any great helmet is that you can omit you may have it on. Bell engineers undertook that task by keeping the Volt helmet light and making sure it used to be ventilated. At 320g, it is probably the most lightest in the market. The Volt’s 22 vents direct air into the helmet, over the head and out the back to keep airflow constant, similar to riding sans bucket. The carbon fiber Fusion In-Mold Microshell adds carbon fiber strength to the internally reinforced EPS foam for greater durability. Cam-lock Levers make for quick strap adjustment. None of this matters if the helmet doesn’t fit. Those who have a round head shape have at all times fared well with Bell helmets, versus the more oval-fitting Giros. The addition of the TAG Fit System means riders can adjust the helmets fit around the Occipital Lobe (that bump behind your head) both in width and height for a more conforming fit. And for those who’ve ever picked up your helmet and thought, “What’s that smell?” you can appreciate the X-Static Padding which combines a quick-dry material with an anti-microbial coating. Bell’s most impressive achievement could also be the at all times-right graphics package. The Bell Volt is to be had in 3 sizes, includes the adjustable and removable VPV Visor (and plugs, will have to you select to ride without) and comes in numerous stunning finishes. Make a choice from Black/Carbon, Blue/White, Matte Blue/Black, Red/White, or Silver/White.
Combining massive ventilation, svelte weight, and high-tech comfort features, the Bell Volt Bike Helmet has 11 frontal vents direct the go with the flow of air by the use of the helmet’s custom-sculpted Composite Fiber Intakes (CFI) and internal StreamJet Ventilation channels. Designed for use on- or off-road, the Volt’s removable Variable Position Visor (VPV) is well suited to the rigors of road racing in addition to cross country (XC) competitions.
Rearward exhaust ports and the moisture-wicking X-Static padding work in tandem to lend a hand keep the rider cool and dry. The Volt is made even more comfortable by Bell’s new Twin Axis Gear (TAG) fit system–an evolution of the highly acclaimed GPS fit system–which allows riders to both dial in the exact fit in addition to adjust the mechanism’s horizontal position at the back of the head.

Specially designed ventilation channels at the interior of the helmet’s liner bring cool air in through the front, pass it over the head and flushes warm air out of the rear ports. The Volt features deeply sculpted channels that keep air moving whether you’re bombing it at 30 mph, or huffing it uphill at single digit speed.
With the intention to maximize venting and minimize bulk, high-end helmets like the Volt now feature internal reinforcements. These composite skeletons support helmets the similar way rebar makes concrete stronger. This allows for bigger vents, more advanced styling and lighter weight, at the same time as still meeting stringent safety standards.
