Bell Super 2R MIPS equipped full face helmet at The Path Bike ShopExciting new arrival from Bell Helmets! Enduro and DH riders, this one's made for you.

The ultra versatile Bell Super 2R is a full-face helmet with a chin bar that can be removed to create a half shell helmet. This ultra versatile helmet bridges the gap between a half shell helmet and a dedicated full face helmet, giving riders the option to have greater coverage but without needing to carry two separate helmets.

The Bell Super 2R MIPS Equipped MTB helmet (Bell's Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) takes it a step further, providing an extra layer of protection inside the helmet that rotates in order to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head on impact.

All Bell helmets are safety certified, with additional features like breakaway screws and camera mount, adjustable visor, and overbrow ventilation. Finally! A half shell helmet for climbs and trail riding, with a full face option for the DH portion of the ride. Brilliant!

Bell Super 2R full face MTB helmet at The Path Bike ShopWe just received a full size run (Small thru Large) of Bell Super 2R MIPS in Black/White (pictured, above), Infared and White/Black. MSRP is $220.00.

We also have the original Bell Super 2R (pictured, left) in a variety of sizes and colors. MSRP is $200.
