Bottom Line:   
THIS HELMET IS AWESOME, I RIDE ABOUT 1OO TO 150 MILES WEEK DURING SEASON AND I CRASHED HARD THIS WEEK AT ABOUT 20MPH, BOUNCED PRETTY WELL, I REMEMBER BOUNCING FROM THE RIGHT SIDE TO THE LEFT AND WAITING FOR MY HEAD TO HIT THE PAVEMENT AND WAITING FOR THE PAIN....NONE, I WAS ASTOUNDED THAT THE HELMET ABSORBED SO MUCH OF THE IMPACT. IT CRACKED IN TWO PLACES. SAVED MY NOGGIN!!! LOOKING FOR A NEW ONE!

Strengths:    Enough vents to do a reasonable job of keeping you cool. Good fit for a large head.

Weaknesses:    They need to rethink the way the sweat gets routed on a hard ride. Often got into my eyes--especially when in a tuck. Bought a Halo headband.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this product because it fit my head--as simple as that. I crashed yesterday at about 35 mph going down a hill. I hit the back of my head as I went over my handlebars. I am writing this with road rashes all over and still a bit of fuzziness--but I AM writing this. This is not a unique product--but that is the point: helmets work.

Date Reviewed: December 21, 2008

Strengths:    Light, fits my head perfectly, the color scheme is cool

Weaknesses:    Price, but you know how the saying goes: $10 helmet, $10 head. $500 helmet...etc...

Bottom Line:   
For some reason I thought Bell was a lesser product than Giro; to my surprise my LBS told me they're owned by the same people. The only difference is the shape. Giro=round skulls, Bell=oval.

Date Reviewed: June 9, 2007

Strengths:    (Apparent) safety design, fit, strap routing

Weaknesses:    300g weight may be higher than some (haven't much noticed); pad separated from velcro after many sweat-filled months - Bell sent me a new one, free.

Bottom Line:   
The Bell Ghisallo helmet is a worthy product with good fit characteristics (roc-lok, pad placement), especially for my oval head shape. No endo test yet, but confidence-inspiring.

2009 Bell Ghisallo vs 2010 Bell Sweep

Just received my Bell Sweep as a crash replacement today. I went with white because I decided it would not hurt to be that much more visible. Both helmets are similar in weight (340g claimed, not actual). Upon first inspection, you get more surface area in the padding with the Ghisallo when compar ... Read More »

Bell Ghisallo saved my head.... Smith Pivlock sliced my face....

[FONT=Verdana]I was in a group ride yesterday. I looked back for a friend, while another friend in front of me slowed down abruptly. When I turned to look ahead, I was about to collide into him. I didn't want to swerve into traffic so my first instinct was to brake hard. I braked so hard that I ... Read More »
