After the MIPS success, Bell got back to the drawing board to rethink the inside of the helmet. Bell ended up with a completely new approach of both the adjustment system as the MIPS sliding surface. Fewer layers means more stability.
It starts with the Progressive Layering- technology, a combination of two EPS-segments with different compositions to be able to control a potential crash. The general shape, tested and retested, combines all-round performance with aerohead cooling ventilation. The new Float Fit Race attachment system, that can be adjusted vertically and horizontally and easy to use with one dial has been optimised with the new integrated MIPS-system. Together they create a brilliant streamlined solution to reduce rotational forces without compromising comfort and fit. The Zephyr Ghost is also provided with integrated reflection. This makes sure you’re visible in the dark. Exactly what you need in the longest, darkest, and heaviest days in the saddle.
By designing a MIPS gliding surface directly in the Zephyr fit system, Bell reduces complexity and weight and offers a smaller fit and a better general fit.
Optimised form - ventilation meets aero
Zephyr’s slim, semi-round profile was achieved after hours in the wind tunnel and in the thermal regulator to achieve the perfect ventilation and low resistance at different speeds.
The special foam construction places a material with a lower density close to your head. This way larger impacts on the head can be controlled, while it offers the designers possibilities to create more effective ventilation holes.
Float Fit Race
The newest fit system by Bell is slim, light, and adjustable. Float Fit Race offers you the possibility to adjust 22mm vertically and it is possible to adjust it laterally. The system seamlessly fits in MIPS lining.
Details matter. Bell’s most recent strap system is easy to adjust and keeps the straps flat and unnoticeable, which also saves some watts.
