Summary:
This helmet saved my life.

And performed beyond comparison while doing it. I was hit from behind at about 40-45mph while riding very slowly (terrible headwind) which threw me helmet-first into the windshield. I didn’t lose consciousness even for a second, or feel any pain in my head in the slightest. The helmet also took a second impact, when I rolled off the hood and onto the concrete of the road. CT scan showed not even a slight concussion. The helmet was completely intact, with amazingly symmetrical cracks in strategic places throughout the inside of the helmet. It still feels as sturdy now as many cheaper helmets do when brand new. I am basically just blown-away by how well designed and manufactured this helmet is.

I worked at a Bell dealer bike shop, and for some reason, Bell doesn’t seem to publicize that this helmet is designed with a novel “web” structure throughout the foam specifically to keep the helmet intact for multiple impacts, which apparently, works.

It is also super comfortable and wonderfully ventilated, TAG tightening system works flawlessly.

Unfortunately, I’m stuck with a Giro Ionos that I won in a contest. As soon as its worn out, I’m getting another Volt.

Buy it. It will probably save your life.
