Bell Sixer Helmet - Review
@WAKIdesigns: comparing used prices or heavily discounted prices is pointless. Market to market and timing all drastically change that. Retail comparison...

@WAKIdesigns: Agreed. Publishing too much data can just confuse people... and get the companies sued.

@bogey: Good reason there. My helmets all have black. Never really thought about it though. Interesting.

@MX298: Light and small doesn't mean unsafe. Do you think that Kali makes unsafe helmets? Their dual certified DH lid is very light... especially when you compare it to similar Moto helmets. Yet it's safe and passes the certs. Bell has the best test lab in the country at their hands. I guarantee you this helmet got smashed a lot of times before it was sent out for certification testing.

@mikekazimer: Agree 100%. The data really isn't hard to find. The issue is that some people come in to it with an expectation of what their version of credible evidence is. If it's not what they expect they disregard what is available. I think people forget how new this information is. How new the tech is and how new the testing is. Currently the standard test is the standard. Until something better gets developed that's all you can go off of. The MIPS sled is used in several labs, I've seen one with my own eyes. As long as the data you're looking at is comparing helmets on the same piece of equipment... well that's all you can go off for the time being. This information is all so new. I agree... MIPS is not the end all be all. I am a fan of 6D's version. I'm a fan of Kali's foam tech but not their version of rotational information. I actually really hope they don't get too locked in to that and they continue to pursue it because they've got some brilliant minds at Kali. Same goes for Bell. Once business dictates safety you begin to lose ground. Essentially brother... long way to say... I agree. Ha!

@Konyp: There's plenty of data on how it improves safety. You want to grow a fro and assume that's a better safety feature you go ahead. When you're looking at a high end product features like this are included in that. You want a helmet without MIPS buy a cheaper one. Bell does a better job integrating it than anyone else and offers it at less of an impact in cost to the consumer. If you want a helmet with a different version of this... don't buy a Bell. Go buy a Kali or a 6D or some other helmet with their own version of it with the same lack of data. It's like buying an STI and going... man... I really wish that didn't have AWD. Well guess what... don't buy a Subaru then.

I don't mind it. At least it's not a four foot long duck bill like some other brands. But maybe that's what you like.

So you don't want improved safety features?
