Airy-cool comfort.

Sculpted with 18 large vents, the Bern FL-1 XC MIPS Helmet maintains cool-wearing comfort in the warmest possible conditions. Representing the top-flight XC helmet in Bern's line, the FL-1 XC offers the security and customizable fit of a Boa 360 system paired with the sun-blocking protection of a removable hard visor.

In-mold construction uses a polycarbonate shell with EPS foam for the best of impact absorption and lightweight comfort. MIPS technology enhances the real-world functionality of this helmet by using an elastomeric liner to reduce rotational forces. This liner creates a slip plane that dissipates the brutal force of angled impacts, giving you extra peace of mind when you're slaloming down twisting trail sections and crushing over rock gardens with speed.

Light weight and stays stable.

This helmet ROCKS! I ride a fully rigid hardtail MTB and I purchased this helmet specifically because it uses a BOA system to really dial in the fit as most of the time I am riding I am bouncing and rattling all over the place . Put it on, spin the BOA dial until the helmet is snug and BOOM, I’m stylin’ and safe all day long! It just stays in place! Really light weight and breathable as well. The removable visor is a very nice touch as well. I’m not very into bright and flashy helmets, so the earthy tones of the green really speak to me. I would say it fits true to size.

good helmet
