Bell's Zephyr helmet is an impressive combination of padding, venting, and aerodynamics to keep you cool and comfortably on the ride. Made for road cyclists, Bell collaborated with MIPS to create a helmet that provides top-notch safety without compromising the venting system.
The Zephyr can be purchased in various sizes and colors, and some links on our website will only take you to one of many combinations of this product. Please make sure when checking out that the color and size are the ones that you want, and not just what the link took you to. This model utilizes MIPS, a helmet technology developed to keep your noggin as safe as possible. The Zephyr also features the Float Fit Race system for adjustment, which allows you to change the sizing of the helmet vertically, on the sides, and in the back easily, even if you only have one hand available.
After redesigning the shape of the shell and implementing a new padding system, the Zephyr fits more comfortably and snugly than previous Bell models. With 18 vents, the Zephyr provides an extensive venting system to keep you cool on your more strenuous rides. Many helmets find themselves compromising aerodynamics or safety when they opt for venting, but the Zephyr uniquely combines MIPS, venting, and padding in a way that many of its competitors can't. We were hard pressed to find any negative reviews of this helmet, and the only flaw that Bike Radar seemed to find was that there is a bit of exposed core on the bottom edges of the helmet, but that this seems to only be a problem if you drop the helmet right on the edges.
Overall, the Zephyr seems to be one of the most comfortable and efficient helmet models on the road right now. If you are willing to pay the money for this helmet, you'll be buying top of the line safety and venting, and a product that will last you a long time.
