Bell Revolver EVO Helmet – Improving A Best Seller

The Bell Revolver EVO Modular Helmet was released in 2012 as an upgrade to the Bell Revolver Helmet – one of the best sellers in the Bell Helmet Arsenal.  Bell has been around since 1954 and strives to evolve and improve with every new series.  The EVO is a high quality modular helmet contructed from a composite polycarbonite alloy.

Weighing in at 1750 grams, it is lightweight and stable.  One of the most important improvements over the Bell Revolver redesigned the eye port.  The peripheral field of vision  is nice and wide on this helmet.  Other improvements include better sealing at the chin curtain and smoother sliding of the integrated drop-down sun visor.  Bell Revolver EVO Helmet Review

Ventilation is amazing in this lid.  The Velocity Flow ventilation system is optimized by strategically placing flow separators at precise points inside the helmet which keeps cool air circulating when you need it most. The overall truncated shape adds to the aerodynamic quality of the helmet making it very stable even at higher speeds.

The integrated sun shade can be dropped down easily with a button click and slide.  The sun shade functions separately from the main helmet shield providing the rider extra protection from harsh sunlight on the fly. The chin bar easily flips up at the press of a button.

The clear faceshield is UV protected, scratch resistant and anti-fog.  The interior is removable and washable.  This helmet comes with audio speaker cutouts and contour cheekpads for better fit and comfort.
