WHATS NEW All-new Javelin TT helmet highlights Bell’s 2012 line With a bevy of world and national time trial championships, Olympic gold medals and Ironman wins, one would expect to see photos of big-motor riders clad in their ultra-aero time trial helmets in the pages of the Bell record book. Guys like Fabian Cancellara, Dave Zabriske and Tim DeBoom. And you would. But Bell’s quest for pure speed started before those guys were even born. It started on the Salt Flats of Bonneville with land speed record guys…crazies like Mickey Thompson in his double V-8 Challenger I, and Craig Breedlove in his jet-powered Spirit of America, and Burt Munro on his V-twin Indian motorcycle as dramatized in the film The World’s Fastest Indian. Whether shooting for 30 miles per hour, or 600 miles per hour, strapping on a Bell has long been a final step on the checklist to greatness…and now there’s a new line-item on that list—the all-new Bell Javelin. The Javelin features a wind tunnel-proven aerodynamic fuselage, an integrated shield, as well as Bell’s super adjustable Twin Axis Gear (TAG) fit system. The Javelin’s exclusive SeamFlex ear flaps make getting the Javelin on and off both quick and pain free—a big plus particularly if “transition area” is part of your vernacular.

Tater adds in-mold tenacity to Bell’s flashy, fun kid’s platform An all-new shape and in-mold construction bring an exciting update to Bell’s OneStep kid’s helmet platform. Building on the revolutionary OneStep fit system launched two years ago, the Tater brings tantrum-free simplicity to fitting kid helmets. Simply put the helmet on, snap the buckle and ride. What could be easier? No ear adjustments to mess with, no worrying about whether it’s too tight or too loose around the head, the OneStep system takes the guess work out and replaces it with a correct fit every time. On the initial fitting, simply snap the buckle closed and make the one-time adjustment of snugging the chin strap to the proper length and that’s it. And if the grab-it-and-go simplicity weren’t enough, kids will love the cuddly graphics and the integrated flashers that add both fun and visibility. Now instead of not wanting to put a helmet on, kids won’t ever want to take them off!

Its sizing skews smaller than both its predecessor (the Bellistic) and the more robust Bell Drop, and is squarely aimed at BMX, Super-D and allmountain riding. The moto-inspired style lines and graphics are youthful and contemporary, adding to the Sanction’s aggressive attitude.

How do you improve upon a classic? Maybe you don’t. Maybe the reason a classic is a classic is because it’s the same as it ever was. And maybe there’s nothing wrong with that. Certainly nothing wrong with the Faction… old school style and dual-certification for bicycle or skate use, dual-density EPS foam for a low-profile fit and designer graphics from the likes of Paul Frank and Jimbo Phillips to take it over the top.

The Volt is an amazing combination of massive ventilation, svelte weight, and high-tech comfort. Eleven frontal vents corral massive amounts of air with the help of the Volt’s custom-sculpted Composite Fiber Intakes™ (CFI) which direct flow to the helmet’s internal StreamJet Ventilation™ channels. Rearward exhaust ports and the moisturewicking X-Static™ padding work in tandem to help keep the rider cool and dry. The Volt is made even more comfortable by Bell’s next-generation Twin Axis Gear™ (TAG) fit system that allows riders to both dial in the exact fit, as well as adjust the mechanism’s vertical position on the back of the head. Designed to be used on- or off-road, the Volt features Bell’s removable Variable Position Visor™ (VPV) and is equally at home in Tour de France as it is on the World Cup XC mountain bike circuit.

The Muni takes the mantle of Bell urban helmets to a new level with outstanding functionality, great features, and well-mannered design and graphics. Visibility is a big part of the Muni story, with a pair of integrated rear flashing lights which come as standard equipment. A rear strap allows even more lighting to be added by simply clipping on a rear flasher—we suggest the ultra minimalist Blackburn Flea 2.0 Rear—while a sleek, seamless perch built into the Blade Visor Plus accommodates the diminutive but bright Blackburn Front Flea light. Strap adjustments and sizing are nearly automatic thanks to the helmet’s OneStep Plus fit system that— after a couple quick out-of-the-box adjustments—snugs to a custom fit every time you ride. Carrying over from its predecessors, the Metropolis and Citi, is the Flip Mirror—a super adjustable mirror that clips to special grooves in the visor and stows away neatly when not in use. Rounding out the package is a ratcheting buckle which provides easy fitting with its subtle adjustment range.

MUNI & ARELLA TECHNOLOGY, FEATURES AND ACCESSORIES Bell’s Muni and Arella Evolve Urban Cycling The Muni and Arella are Bell’s latest evolution of the purpose-built urban helmet…a category Bell pioneered with the groundbreaking Metropolis in 2004, by the by. And while the original concept was ahead of the urban cycling renaissance by a few years, the market has now caught up to the ideal, and Bell has taken the opportunity to push things forward once again with even better ease-of-use, improved functionality and evolved styling. New for 2012 is a second, smaller size in the Muni to fit a wider range of riders.

OneStep Plus: Three Positions and Lights The adult-specific version of OneStep includes three snap baskets fine-tuning the perfect fit. On the other end of the fit system, integrated flashing lights add conspicuity.

Versatile Flip Mirror The Flip Mirror extends and adjusts easily to the desired angle when in use, and folds to cleanly nestle into the visor when not needed.

This Helmet Has Fleas The Muni and Arella were built to specifically accommodate the Blackburn Flea front and rear lights with mounting points tailored to these lightweight and superbright lamps.

Ratchet to Fit The all new ratcheting buckle from Bell provides easy fitting with its adjustment Two Sizes – NEW FOR 2012 The Muni is now available in S/M as well as M/L with better fit for more riders.

OneStep Fit OneStep Fit System takes the hassle out of fitting kid’s helmets The OneStep™ Fit System is simply the fastest and most intuitive way to properly fit a child’s helmet. Just put the helmet on…snap the PinchGuard buckle…and off they go with a helmet that’s both properly fitted and properly worn. OneStep always self-adjusts to the correct size, eliminating the yanking, adjusting and fussing often associated with fitting kids’ helmets. And the helmet is not just on the child’s head, it’s on correctly. We often see helmets with poorly adjusted ear straps, or sitting in the wrong position on the head. One Step eliminates these errors by making it virtually impossible to wear the helmet incorrectly. On the initial fitting, simply snap the buckle closed and make the one-time adjustment of snugging the chin strap to the proper length and that’s it.  The helmet will fit properly and securely every time your little rider heads out. OneStep – kid friendly and parent approved! OneStep Explained: Complex Simplicity The goals for the OneStep system were very simple—minimize the number and complexity of adjustments so helmets fit better out of the box ; and make the helmet automatically sit on the head correctly. It would be uncomplicated if every child’s head was the same size, shape and proportion, but like kids themselves, head ergonomics can vary a great deal from one child to the next. So OneStep engineers got their rulers and compasses out and made thousands of measurements and calculations on hundreds of kids. Next they crunched the data and made prototype after prototype until they arrived at the sweet spot—the place where straps would comfortably fit around the widest range of ear locations…where the large variety of occipital lobe (the lump at the back of the head) placements would be accommodated...where the range of stretch in the fit belt needed to be…not to mention a laundry list of other form factors that need to align for a good fit.

Our Tater product packaging features these illustrations which highlight the simplicity of One-Step™ fit.

BELL TECH FIT SYSTEMS Twin Axis Gear™ (TAG)

Bell’s next-generation Twin Axis Gear™ (TAG) fit system adjusts to the head on two axes—circumferentially as standard fit systems do, but also vertically to better accommodate differences in the up/down position of the occipital lobe. For added comfort we’ve co-molded the system arms with soft rubber and positioned them higher to better accommodate eyewear. The result is the most adjustable, comfortable and easy-to-use fit system ever.

Geared Positioning System™ (GPS)

The often imitated Geared Positioning System (GPS) delivers easy and quick one-hand adjustment for superior fit and comfort. Simply slide the dial to click-in a custom fit.

ErgoDial™

The ErgoDial Fit System brings one-handed adjustments to our Universal Fit helmets. A simple press of the button and slide of the dial brings firm, snug and comfy stability.

OneStep Plus™

The world’s easiest helmet fitting system is now available on adult helmets with the OneStep Plus fit system. Just like its pint-sized predecessor, the new ‘Plus’ version features an innovative fit belt that automatically adjusts to the rider’s head size with a one-time adjustment. The first time it’s worn, simply select one of the three fore-aft arm positions and tighten the chin strap to the proper length. After that, the helmet self-adjusts for a correct fit every time. Another feature of the Plus are the integrated rear LED flashers. These sleek, ultra-lightweight, lights feature bright, long-life, flashing LEDs for increased conspicuity in low-light situations.

OneStep™ Fit

The OneStep Fit System is simply the fastest and most intuitive way to properly fit a child’s helmet. Just put the helmet on…snap the PinchGuard buckle…and off they go with a helmet that’s both properly fitted and properly worn. OneStep always self-adjusts to the correct size, eliminating the yanking, adjusting and fussing often associated with fitting kids’ helmets. And the helmet is not just on the child’s head, it’s on correctly. The only adjustment needed is on the initial fitting—simply snap the buckle closed and make the one-time adjustment of snugging the chin strap to the proper length. That’s it.  The helmet will fit properly and securely every time your little rider heads out. OneStep – kid friendly

VISORS Variable Position Visor™ (VPV)

Bell’s top-of-the-line Variable Position Visor allows for 15 degrees of horizontal adjustment by using an imbedded clutch mechanism that holds the visor firmly at the desired angle. Changing the VPV’s angle just takes a simple up or down tug.

Flying Bridge Visor™

The Flying Bridge Visor™ was developed for Bell’s award-winning Moto-8 motorcycle helmet and adapted for the Drop DH/BMX helmet. The easy-to-adjust system uses two side-mounted adjusting screws in conjunction with a proprietary cam mechanism that hold the visor firmly and securely without the need of a hard-to-reach center screw. Visor adjustments are easy, even in gloved hands.

Blade Plus Visor™

Bell’s Blade Plus visor lights up the ride by adding an integrated perch for mounting the Blackburn Flea front light.

Blade Visor™

Bell’s Blade visor mixes dramatic looks with top-notch functionality. Horizontal I-beam pins keep the visor in place with minimal intrusion on the helmet surface.

Snap-In Visor

Bell’s removable Snap-In visor is a simple yet effective solution to harsh light situations.

MICROSHELLS Fusion In-Mold Microshell

In-molding is the process of bonding the helmet’s Microshell to its EPS foam layer to provide a sturdier, more solid helmet. The EPS foam is shot into the thin Microshell cap when it’s in the mold—thus the name—rather than formed separately and taped on later. This process was pioneered by Bell and is now the industry standard for all high-end helmets. All but our toddler helmets are now made with this construction method.

In-Mold Bottom Wrap

In-Mold bottom wraps bring a new level of durability, solidity and aesthetics to helmets. By bonding Microshell material to the lower half of the helmet, In-Mold bottom wraps cover what on most helmets is a less durable, exposed EPS foam.

Tight-Fit Microshell

This method of attaching the Microshell to the EPS foam mates a precisely molded outer shell to the foam liner. The two pieces are snugly pressed to a tight tolerance and affixed using a super-adhesive strip.

CONSTRUCTION Composite Fiber Intake™ (CFI) Composite Construction

Bell’s Composite Fiber Intakes™ (CFI) serve double duty on the all-new Volt. First, they serve as an ultra lightweight yet rigid skeleton to reinforce the helmet’s overall structure. Second, their directional orientation deflects airflow to the helmet’s internal StreamJet Ventilation™ system which uses the Venturi Effect to increase ventilation velocity and cooling.

Internal Reinforcement

In order to maximize venting and minimize bulk, high-end helmets feature internal reinforcement structures. These composite skeletons fortify helmets the same way rebar makes concrete stronger, allowing for bigger vents, more advanced styling and lighter weight, while still meeting stringent safety standards.

VENTILATION/COOLING: StreamJet Ventilation™

For the Volt race helmet, Bell engineers created an airflow matrix that mixes the deeply sculpted Channeled Ventilation ducts with specially designed constriction channels that use the Venturi Effect to increase airflow rates. The result of the alternating high volume and high airflow channels is a system that efficiently moves cool air in the front and exhausts warm flow out the rear of the helmet.

Channeled Ventilation

Specially designed ventilation channels on 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. You’ll find some form of this feature on almost all Bell helmets, but our higher end helmets feature deeply sculpted channels that keep air moving whether you’re bombing it at 30 mph, or huffing it uphill at single digit speed.

OTHER FEATURES X-Static™ Padding

Woven with real silver fibers, X-Static™ Padding is a quick-drying and anti-microbial material that inhibits growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi while keeping you cooler than standard comfort pads.

Registered Graphics

Getting helmet graphics to hit the right spot on the helmet without distorting or warping is more challenging than most people realize. It’s why you see many of our competitors only doing helmets in solid colors or with very simple graphics. Bell designers have pioneered methods for registering graphics, so that we can make some of the most graphically complex and visually appealing helmets in the world.

Visor Plugs

Visor Plugs are designed to be snapped into visor receptacles when the visor is removed to give the helmet a finished look.

Ratcheting Buckle

The ratcheting buckle from Bell provides easy fitting with and an additional micro range of adjustment at the buckle.

PinchGuard Buckle

Bell’s PinchGuard buckle is specially designed to prevent kids from pinching their neck when they secure their helmet.

Cam-lock Levers

Bell’s Cam-Lock strap levers make it easy to adjust the straps around your ears. Simply open the cam…position comfortably and close the lever. Done. 69
