While we often stress our bikes as the most important part of our ride, at the end of the day a helmet is inarguably the most critical components, after all, there's no bike riding at all without our brains. Fortunately we can keep our noggins on lock down without breaking the bank, and while still keeping on top of our style game with the Bell Hela Joy Ride MIPS Helmet for Women. Designed for riders who want to charge all over the mountain without feeling limited, the Hela MIPS protects you with a dough hardshell, and MIPS technology to go the extra mile.
MIPS, or Multi-directional Impact Protection System, is one of the key elements on the Hela Mips that keeps you safe in the event of a crash. MIPS consists an anchored liner on the inside of the helmet that sits low profile and unobtrusive, but serves a huge purpose. Should you hit your head during a crash, the liner is designed to move independenty from the helmet shell, so it can diffuse certain impact forces better than other non-MIPS helmets, dispersing the blow to protect your brain, and increasing your chances of hopping right back on the bike after a doozy of a crash.
When you're hitting the trail in the Hela you'll be happy to find a ton of rider-driven features designed to keep you more comfortable in all kinds of conditions. A large, adjustable visor system keeps the sun out of your eyes, and if you're rocking goggles for dusty enduro days, it can help guide them into place and lock them on so you don't have to worry about them sliding when the trail gets rowdy. Fifteen different vents cover the helmet, opening up airflow throughout so you can keep cool on the long and arduous climbs, and SweatGuide padding pulls perspiration away from your skin, so you don't have to feel the sting of salt in your eyes when the temperatures rise.
