Bell will debut the Volt helmet at the Tour de France and World Cup XC circuit simultaneously this Saturday.
The new helmet, which will soon be available via Madison, features a combination of ventilation, svelte weight, and high-tech comfort. Eleven frontal vents stream plenty of air with the help of the Volt’s custom-sculpted carbon fiber intakes, which direct flow to the helmets’ internal ‘StreamJet’ ventilation channels. Rearward exhaust ports and the moisture-wicking X-Static padding work in tandem to help keep the rider cool and dry.
Other innovations featuring in the protective lid include Bell’s next-generation Twin Axis Gear fit system that allows riders to customise the fit, as well as adjust the mechanism’s horizontal position on the back of the head. Designed to be used on or off-road, the Volt features a removable visor, which can be adjusted.
Sizes range from Small at 51-55 cm, Medium which caters for 55-59 cm heads and a Large size, which offers protection up to 63 cm.
