For the budget-conscious mountain biker, Bell's Spark Helmet (MIPS) is hard to beat. A head-turning design is matched by impeccable protection via MIPS and a multi-layer design, allowing you to push your skills confidently to a new level.
Designed for the keen trail rider, the Spark Helmet (MIPS) makes use of Bell's pioneering Fusion In-Mold system, the durable outer shell being bonded to the EPS foam inner, ensuring that you enjoy safety and long term durability as you tackle ever more tricky terrain. This already excellent level of safety is further enhanced by the MIPS system, imparting extra protection against rotational forces in the event that you hit the dirt.
While you'll be kept safe, the Spark (MIPS) also has an easily adjustable fit, all thanks to the Ergo Fit system; this means that with a simple twist of a dial you can customise the fit of the helmet so it stays solidly and comfortably in place and won't move even over the roughest of rock gardens and root strewn of singletrack runs.
Inevitably you'll start to get warm as you ride and so Bell have given the Spark (MIPS) thirteen vents to keep fresh air flowing over the head and allowing sweat to escape easily. The venting is backed up by the Sweat Guide pads, pulling excess moisture away from the brow and leaving you drier and eyewear free from humidity build up. With an integrated visor your eyes are nicely shaded from the sun, or should the heavens open, then it gives you added shielding from raindrops and mud kicked up.
What is MIPS?
• MIPS is a Brain Protection System
• Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
• The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
