Some peo­ple think pur­chas­ing a brand-new hel­met that has a long list of func­tions and fea­tures will cost way too much to jus­tify spend­ing the money. Well, the

Luxx lid changes all of that.

The high-strength poly-al­loy ma­te­ri­als that went into this hel­met’s con­struc­tion cre­ate a durable, light­weight shell, while the dual-den­sity EPS liner pro­vide pro­gres­sive im­pact ab­sorp­tion for dif­fer­ent lev­els of im­pact. High-flow ven­ti­la­tion, an easy-chang­ing an­tifog face shield, and quick-re­lease wash­able Cool­max com­fort liner make for a com­pet­i­tively priced, af­ford­able hel­met that com­fort­ably fits any head and budget.

Bell is a trusted name in the mo­tor­cy­cling com­mu­nity, and when it re­leases a new hel­met to the mar­ket­place, we pay at­ten­tion. The Revolver EVO Rally hel­met has yet to dis­ap­point on looks, but more im­por­tantly is its highly dec­o­rated spec sheet. Lead­ing fea­tures in­clude a re­designed eye­port seal, new chin cur­tain, and an im­proved flip-down sun­shade for easy and quick ad­just­ments. This one’s a win­ner.

Sleek Euro­pean de­sign has in­flu­enced the con­struc­tion of the FX-36 shell, and ad­vanced tech­no­log­i­cal fea­tures come to­gether to form a truly im­pres­sive new hel­met from AFX. The light­weight com­pos­ite poly-al­loy makes for a com­fort­able and se­cure flush fit, and the op­ti­cally cor­rect, com­pound-curved, scratch-re­sis­tant face shield pro­tects against UV-rays and can be re­leased with one quick turn of the re­lease screw. The hel­met also al­lows for quick cool­ing, as it fea­tures five points of ven­ti­la­tion with one near the chin, top, and rear, as well as unique side ex­trac­tion vents to help keep the air mov­ing and the ride flow­ing smoothly.

The end re­sult comes in the form of a hel­met that fits right in terms of com­fort, aero­dy­nam­ics, and safety.
