Helmets are the most important part of riding a bike. Helmets protect your head from impacts. The Bell Sixer takes protection to the next level with MIPS technology that protects your head from rotational energy from certain impacts. This well ventilated helmet features Bell's Float Fit Race system that offers a custom fit with three-way adjustability, Sweat Guide that pulls sweat away from eyewear, Progressive layering that manages the transfer of energies after some impacts, and an integrated breakaway camera mount.

I purchased this helmet to replace a non-mips Super 2 after a crash. I am on the top end of the size chart for a medium. with a head measuring exactly 59cm. This helmet fits snugly so I only have about 1-2 clicks of adjustment on the dial. It does fit a little tighter than my Medium Super 2 did. However I don't think this will be a problem. My head shape and size often puts me on the line between sizes and I prefer the more secure feeling of a snug fit to a helmet that feels a little too big with the dial tightened way up. I haven't been able to go for a ride with it yet but thus far I'm happy. I got it in the Retina color. It's much more lime green towards the front of the helmet than the stock photo shows and then fades to the more construction safety yellow towards the top and back. This is my first Mips helmet and as far as a fit goes I don't notice. Hopefully I never have to find out if Mips does what it's supposed to do. Maybe the Mips part is why this helmet feels a little tighter than my super 2 did.
This helmet has high level of protection due to extended back and added Mips. Its comfortable: sits good and well adjusted. Very well vented. There is special fixture for a camera. The only minus is, that the sizing is a bit tight, but this is mutual for all Mips halmets i had.
This helmet is perfect. It’s safe, light, and comfortable. My head is about 7 1/4 hat size and the medium is perfect. Even have some room to tighten it. That adjustment is smooth and gradual so you can dial it in perfectly. The chin strap is just as good and lays flat. The sweat channels up front work! No complaints.
Like: True to size. I'm on the cusp of Large and Extra Large at 23.33-inch head circumference, so I never know if I need to order Large or XL in some brands. This Bell Sixer size Large fits perfectly.
I love the adjustable visor. It's great for a more head-down position, as you can lift the visor and still see ahead of you. In lowest position, it will obscure your view if you're down on the drops in full road-bike mode. One click upwards, and it's all good. Very handy.
Chinstrap clicks/locks solidly. Size adjustment is via a spin dial in the read, on the cerebellum, and works very easily with one hand.
Ventilation is excellent. I live in a hot environment in the summer, and it cools nicely.
Dislike: Not much to dislike, really. It's my first MIPS helmet, so I don't know if the slight "wiggle" feeling when everything is tightened down is normal or not. With the chin strap fully tight, and the liner locked down, there is a slight wiggliness, which I believe is natural, as the helmet lists "float fit" for MIPS compatibility, I suppose. It does not feel loose while riding, though.
I hope it is as durable as my Bell motorcycle helmets, which have been bulletproof. I was using an older Giro Stratus, and the plastic in the adjustable liner got brittle and broke over 5 years of use.
So far, so good. I recommend it. Comfortable, good fit for my head, good price, and I like the style.
