Bell’s Custom Moto Helmet

The search for a motorcycle helmet that fits your head can be a difficult task. The standard helmets range in standard sizing from small to extra large, but many people can be in-between sizes. Bell has found a solution to create a custom moto helmet for the perfect fit. A proper helmet can provide stability, reduce wind noise, and most importantly, protect your head. Bell spent the past three years making custom helmet for consumers by 3-D scanning their heads. The scan allows the company to produce a custom carbon fiber helmet at the cost of $1,000. There is also a less expensive alternative from their “ProFIT” system, which allows you to choose from five shell sizes (hard exterior) and six different impact liner sizes (soft interior).
