Big lid.

Whether you're a regular on the enduro racing circuit or prefer getting rowdy on the trails without a clock nearby, chances are good your helmet's seen some abuse over the years. When your current model earns a crack big enough to make you pause, swap it out for the Bell Super 3R MIPS Men's Helmet instead, and launch into serious lines wearing MIPS technology and full-face protection.

When you're rallying along desert slickrock below cloudless skies, the last thing you need is a helmet trapping the heat. Fortunately, enduro lids have come a long way in recent years, and Bell punched out ventilation wherever it could in the Super 3R without compromising the helmet's structural integrity. Brow channels, helmet vents, and chin guard vents all keep air moving and save you from overheating when the sun's overhead.

While the In-Mold shell protects against direct impacts, Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) technology helps absorb and diffuse indirect or oblique forces. MIPS is a thin inner basket sits more subtly on the inside of the helmet. During certain crashes, this slim layer rotates slightly to absorb rotational forces.

In addition to allover protection, Bell didn't forget about smaller features on the Super 3R as well. It gave the integrated camera and light mount a breakaway design. Bell also constructed the entire helmet with breakaway screws for quick removal in case of a more serious crash. Leaning more towards convenience, the adjustable visor integrates with a range of goggles, and X-Static padding creates a cozy fit between your noggin and the shell. The chin bar is removable too; stash it at camp when you're heading out on an easy trail ride, and bring it with you for rowdier days that involve less climbing.

Color description off

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Helmet works like a helmet. Fits true to size. Not the most comfortable one I've owned. Ordered the Black/ Cherry color combo and was slightly disappointed when the color turned out to be more of a pink than red but figured thats why it was on sale anyways...

Fantastic all around helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a perfect helmet for everything from XC in park city to riding DH in Whistler . On the long rides it is lightweight and breathable and on the DH it is comfortable and not too cumbersome. It offers great full protection with an incredible fit.

Just the right protection

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was looking for a full face for riding lift service DH. I ended up purchasing this convertible helmet due to the fact it is still a bike helmet. Some of the beefier full face felt like a motocross helmet and was a little too much for what I would be riding. I have yet to determine if it adequately will protect me on a nasty flow/jump trail fall, but so far it is comfortable and keeps me cool.

super light and comfotable

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I have only used this helmet a couple times but really enjoy it. It provides the additional protection I am looking for when riding lifts with out adding a ton of weight. I have used it with sunglasses and felt very comfortable. Although I don't plan on using it for much trail riding it can certainly be used for that.

Two in one!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I Absolutely love this helmet! I love the fact that it has a detachable chin guard which is super convenient especially on hot summer days or when riding more mellow lines. Very lightweight and breathable on trail and while climbing!

Awesome helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This helmet is very comfortable and protective.

they fixed the fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

other than the spot-on comments about how versatile this helmet is, I'll add that they got the fit right, at least for my head. I bought the Super 2R before, and it was just a bit too round and while loose on the sides, it caused a pressure point on the forehead. Had to return that. But, the 3R is perfectly shaped. It's a keeper! Also proved to be comfortable on a humid 90* day last week (I did not run the chin bar, but a buddy with the same helmet did)

Great Light Weight Protection!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It is perfect to stow away the chin bar on the uphill and attach back on for the downhill. I switched from the giro switchblade and like this one better.

Great brain bucket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am not normally one for reviews, but this helmet is fantastic. I had a nasty fall last year that left me searching for more protection, while still being breathable and light. This checks all three boxes. The adjustable cheek pads are great, and so is the float system to ensure proper fit. I ordered a Large. For reference I wore a M/L TLD drone before this.

Protect the dome piece

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Full face helmets used to be incredibly heavy and breathed terribly....the Bell Super 3 changes all that. You can easily detach the lower portion of the helmet for a climb, attach it for the descent, and add protection to your face. I have had a few spills that could have been much worse if I was not wearing the face guard portion of the helmet.
I use mine for enduro racing and big rides like Monarch Crest and the Whole Enchilada. The added protection is a massive benefit and you sacrifice very little weight when the face guard is in your pack for a big climb.

Great helmet!

    Perfect fit and functionality

    Best Helmet!

      So light and comfortable! Easy to remove face shield.

      Worth every penny

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've used this helmet at a couple different bike parks now and also used it during an enduro race last weekend. The helmet is extremely well ventilated and offers just the right amount of protection. I had a really bad crash recently and smacked the chin bar on a tree with quite a bit of force. It worked as designed and the chin bar didn't budge. Awesome helmet!

      My in between helmet

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love this helmet for any time I am doing more trail riding but feel like I need a bit more protection on the downhill. I can ride up with just the regular helmet then just snap the chinbar on for any burlier descents. Its not quite burly enough for full downhill, but works great for longer enduro rides.

      Great Helmet

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I use it mostly with the chin bar removed and really love it! It hasn't had a chance to save my melon yet, but the fit and quality are top notch. The chin bar is easy to remove and the dial to to tighten the fit works like a charm. I'm super happy with my Super 3R.

      Saved my Life

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I've bought this helmet before in an older version and didn't hesitate to buy this updated version as well.

      It is great to have a helmet that can be used as a full face downhill helmet for every terrain, as well as a normal helmet for cross country riding and easier descents.

      End of July 2017 i crashed on an expert trail, flew 25ft up in the air and landed pretty hard on my face. My arm broke fully and my body was all torn up. This helmet kept my brain in place, moved accordingly to the impact, my face slid through, my chin hit the ground and got a scratch, but other than that I have no injuries on my head. no neck pain, no brain injury, nothing! This helmet moved with the impact and therefore kept me safe!!! You can see a dent and scratch marks on the picture, what is evidence for the good quality of this product!

      I will ALWAYS buy this helmet again and recommend it to anybody. Besides of that it comes in great color options.

      The only con was that the adjusters in the back came lose and didn't tighten all the way anymore. A comfort issue.

      Saved my Life

      The best Endro Helmet yet?

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      Since the development of the Super 2R MIPS, I've been following this helmet line from Bell. Since many retailers are clearing out the Super 2R MIPS, and because of Bell's difficulty with the fit of the Super 2R MIPS, I bought two one medium one large. For reference my head measures 23 inches. I also ordered the Super 3R MIPS for comparison in medium. After receiving all the helmets, I tried them all on. As has been mentioned many times, I found the 2R to have a hot spot on the crown of my head. I also found the chinbar to be too snug. This is also a know challenge of the 2R. Then I tried the 3R, because the 3R chinbar has removable padding layers, I removed one layer and bingo, fit perfectly. Also, Bell redesigned the MIPS layer in the 3R and the hot spot at the crown of my head was gone! Bottom-line, Bell did a terrific job of redesigning a very good helmet, the 2R, to make a terrific helmet in the 3R! If you are looking for versatility and comfort, the 3R is very hard to beat. Yes, the price is steep, and ultimately because of this and what riding I will be doing going forward, I returned it, but if my needs aligned more to the helmet's design, I would purchase the 3R again and again!

      2 in 1!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I Absolutely love this helmet, yes a bit pricey but so worth it! I love the detachable chin guard on the helmet, for more mellow lines I like to take it off. It's a super convenient especially on hot Utah days when a full face is just too much! Still this helmet keeps you cool with all the vented holes when mobbing down hill.

      Best of both worlds

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I was looking for a helmet that was both a full faced for extra protection and something light enough for those days of riding uphill. This helmet hits every point I was looking for. Great protection for the back of my head, customizable for downhill and uphill days, lightweight, looks good, adjustable visor...seriously, this helmet does it all!

      Is the visor removable?

      Fantastic design, wish they made an XL

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small

      I love the versatility of having the removable face guard, and the engineers really got this one right when it comes to simple design. In comparison to the Giro Switchblade, I think this system is easier and more intuitive.

      However, the face guard on this Bell fits too snug on my jaw. I was wishing I could change out the foam inserts, but it didn't come with any alternatives and I was wary of cutting them down in order to fit me better. After wearing it for just a couple minutes, I started getting a headache. I checked for an XL, but Bell doesn't make one for this model. Also, my head circumference fits fine in the L, so not sure this would have solved my problem.

      I ended up going with the Giro Switchblade, which was disappointing because I don't like the physical design nor the colors available as much as what Bell offers. Oh well.
