Bell helmets is built around auto racing, motorcycle, and bicycle culture. The helmet brand was established in 1954 and has been killing it for a while now. Their bike department is the newest and fastest growing branch of their company. More recently, Bell has really stepped up their game with bicycle helmets and their latest Bell Super DH, Bell Sixer, and Bell 4forty models look to be some of their best yet. Here in this review, we are going to be taking a close look at the all new Bell Super DH helmet, an evolution of the Super lineup with features like MIPS Spherical, a 360 degree wraparound tool free removable chin bar, and is the first downhill certified convertible helmet. Let's check it out!

The new Bell Super DH helmet is legit! This one of the most versatile helmets out on the market right now and for good reason. Because the Super DH meets the ASTM F1952 certification, it is ready for full on downhill riding and the kinds of impacts that can occur. Take the chin bar off, and you have one of the most comfortable trails helmets. When you slide this helmet on, the quality fit is very impressive, probably my favorite part about this helmet. The Super DH is a bit bulky to be a true cross country helmet, but that's not what you are buying it for. You're buying it for its versatility and ability to excel in more than one discipline. This helmet is great for the rider that wants one helmet to do it all!
