Already one of the most popular and winning helmets on both the road and mountain bike circuits, the Sweep now features Bells Twin Axis Gear (TAG) fit system. With 20 functional vents actively channeling airflow over the head and out the rear, a feathery curb weight and a bevy of top-level features, its easy to see why the Sweep is a racer favorite. Stout construction with the Fusion In-Mold Microshell and bottom wrap along with an internal reinforcing skeleton make the Sweep strong yet svelte. Dialed race graphics and a removable VPV visor complete the package.

    An excellent helmet. Well ventilated and comfortable.

    It's not the most low profile thing on the market, but it works.

    From blistering hot days in the saddle to freezing cold winter races, this helmet has just plain worked.

      Comments about Bell Sweep Helmet 2012:

      This is a nice helmet, works great, light, and I stay cool while riding in hot SC summers. However, my last helmet (Bell influx) had all these same qualities at $45.

        Use the helmet daily either training or commuting to school. So easy to set up and adjust (the latter even on the fly). Durable materials and comfortable; no forehead indentations! Many ways to dial it in to your head shape. No cons. Buy it; you won't have any regrets.

        Pros

        • Easy to adjust
        • Good Ventilation
        • Looks good
        • Sturdy

        Cons

        • Stiff Pads

        Best Uses

        • Road cycling

        Comments about Bell Sweep Helmet 2012:

        I use this for road and mountain biking, and while the helmet seems to fit just fine, after extended use (2+ hours) I can begin to feel the pads start to wear in on my head. The pads are a little too small for me, and they don't provide enough cushion between my head and the stiff styrofoam shell.

        I've had better luck with the Bell Volt. The padding might be the same, but I believe the shape of the inside of the shell is done better and makes for a more solid feeling fit.

        The helmet may work for some, and may not work for some others. I believe this is true of all helmets/saddle/shoes, etc.

          Comments about Bell Sweep Helmet 2012:

          I LOVE this helmet. This is by far the most comfortable helmet I've ever purchased. The vents are placed very well. It feels like the air comes in through the front, and sweeps (no pun intended) the hot air off your head and out of the back. The pads are super comfortable. On most helmets I get a pressure spot, but not so with the Sweep. It's also really lightweight, which is nice for long rides. I wear it for XC riding and even when I ride my road bike. It's a little expensive, but its definitely worth it.
