Brand Bontrager
Model Year 2018
Road Helmet Type Aero helmet
Weight 276 - 280 grams
Extra protection Yes


The Bontrager Ballista MIPS with the renewed BOA retention system can be made to fit even more comfortably, more accurately accommodating any head size. The Ballista MIPS is safer than the regular version because of the integrated MIPS system, which dissipates part of the energy released in a crash by letting the inner shell move with your head. The Bontrager Ballista also excels when it comes to aerodynamics, ventilation, and comfort. According to wind tunnel testing, the Ballista is the fastest bicycle helmet on the market.

Prima helm

Nog geen ervaring op kunnen doen et warmer weer maar vooralsnog zit de hel ook bij kouder weer met iets er onder. Ben blij dat er MIPS in zit, veiliger!

prettig zittende helm met weinig windruis

Gebruikt tijdens hele triatlon met veel wind. Goede ventilatie zonder windruis. Het is een prettig zittende helm. Jammer alleen dat er geen vizier geïntegreerd is of dat deze los bijgekocht kan worden.


  • goede pasvorm zonder ergens te klemmen
  • geen windruis
  • voldoende ventilatie


  • geen geïntegreerd vizier

Ideale aero helm voor zowel weg als tijdrit

Ik had geen zin om 3 verschillende helmen in de kast te hebben liggen dus na speurwerk en wat gepas heb ik gekozen voor de Ballista. Geen spijt van! De pasvorm is prima en zelfs de ventilatie is bij warm weer prima. Niet heel veel slechter dan mijn oude helm (Catlike Mixino). Ook voor tijdritten is het prima. Zeker met het hoofd omlaag of de schildpadhouding, doet het nauwelijks onder voor de punthelmen. Sterker nog, in CdA berekeningen verloor ik slechts 1,5 watt met deze helm ten opzichte van de Bambino van Kask. Dan ook nog de Mips voor betere bescherming voor de hersenen, ik ben erg tevreden.

  • MIPS
  • Ventilatie


  • Geen geintegreerd vizier

Fijne helm, goede pasvorm, licht maar voelt kwalitatief hoogwaardig. Al met al een absolute aanrader voor je eigen veiligheid.

All specifications

Detailed product description

MIPS System
The MIPS system is a low-friction layer between the EPS core and the padding, which uses an array of elasticated attachments. This allows the helmet to move slightly during a crash (rotate and slide) in relation to your head, thereby absorbing more of the forces caused by said crash. This additional movement is an improvement over the regular helmets, as they only absorb the forces of an impact by compressing the EPS core.

Manufacturer specifications

• Features the MIPS head protection system
• The specific shape of the large central air vent at the front guides considerably more cooling air through the helmet
• Headmaster II-retention system, allowing you to change the circumference and height with just a single hand
• In-Mold composite skeleton to increase the strength of the helmet and offer more options when it comes to ventilation
• Internally recessed airflow channels improve the flow of air through the helmet and over your head
• AgION anti-bacterial padding removes moisture and eliminates foul odours
• The design is compatible with the easy installation of the Bontrager NeoVisor
• Crash Replacement Guarantee - free replacement helmet during the first year after purchase if your helmet gets damaged in the event of a crash
