Protects you on every trail: the Enduro Helmet Sixer MIPS from Bell
The Sixer takes up this challenge with the integrated MIPS technology, resulting in a slimmer and more precise fit that, together with the Float Fit System and the Sweat Guide, offers unprecedented comfort for a bicycle helmet.
This helmet is rounded off with its protective goggle-friendly viewing window, with the Strap Gripper on the back of the helmet holding your goggles in addition to a height-adjustable visor, Integrated Camera/Light Mount and a Full Hard Shell. Bell has rolled up her sleeves a lot and thought about every detail of the Sixer so you can concentrate on the trail out there.

MIPS is a sliding plane system within the helmet designed to slow or prevent the amount of energy that is transmitted to or from the head.
In the in-mold construction, the robust polycarbonate outer shell is bonded to it in a single pass during foaming of the impact absorbing EPS inner shell. This makes the helmet even more resistant without any additional weight. This production process also makes it possible to form significantly better ventilation systems and openings. In-Mold helmets are lighter than traditional helmets and have much better ventilation systems.
Float Fit Race
Bell's latest fitting system is slim, lightweight and incredibly versatile. Float Fit Race? offers a 22 mm height adjustment and additionally a finely rastered width adjustment of the cushions at the back of the head. The system is seamlessly connected to the MIPS, which helps the Zephyr "disappears" as soon as you put it on.
The Roll Cage™ is a reinforcement made of particularly impact-resistant Nylon®, which is embedded directly in the EPS inner foam of Bell's best helmets. It provides extra stability and safety.
Integrated Breakaway Camera Mount
Bell's built-in camera mount allows the portable action camera to be attached seamlessly and unobtrusively without the need for double-sided tape or cable ties. The detachable attachment fits perfectly into the ventilation opening at the top of the helmet, holds the camera in the ideal position and leaves no trace on the helmet after disassembly.
The X-Static® pads are woven with silver threads. They are quick-drying and antibacterial in their action against odour formation. In addition, the X-Static® pads give the driver a cooling and warming feeling in the cold due to their thermal properties.UPC: 768686095931UPC: 768686095948UPC: 768686095955UPC: 768686095962

Andrew S.Comment:My review will echo many already written about this helmet. I had a Bell Super 2 for many years, and although I liked many aspects of the helmet I always felt it could have felt a bit more secure on my head, especially as I regularly ride at night with a Diablo helmet light. I regularly adjusted it on the move, and tried to tighten it prior to hard descents. The Sixer is a great fit on my head, and I think I could probably hang upside down and it would easily stay on without the strap (but I’ll not try it). It’s easy to adjust on the move and the 4 position visor is easy to get in just the right spot. It also seems a lot cooler than the Super 2.Juho A.Comment:My previous helmet was a Super 2R, so I knew the size when ordering. A Large fits my 60cm head great! The retention system in the Sixer is much better than the 2R, and the helmet is much cooler due to the excellent ventilation system. The sweat guide on the brow padding also works great! The only thing I would change is the lock on the chinstrap, there are better models out there.
