Your helmet is the last thing you want to worry about on long off-road tours. It should be well ventilated. It should protect your head. It should fit perfectly so that you will hardly notice it at all. Bell’s SIXER MIPS with built-in MIPS technology and a simple, tight fit around the head can do it all. It combines a FLOAT FIT RACE fitting system with SWEAT GUIDE for unparalleled comfort. A goggle strap gripper at the rear of the helmet and a height-adjustable visor top off the package.

• Moisture-wicking X-STATIC and SWEAT GUIDE padding
• Four-step adjustable visor
• Goggle strap gripper
• Integrated BREAKAWAY CAMERA MOUNT for your action camera
• Adjustable NO-TWIST TRI-GLIDES straps
• FLOAT FIT RACE adjustment system
• MIPS system reduces rotational forces
Weight: approx. 395 g (size M)
FUSION IN-MOLD POLYCARBONATE SHELL:
The EPS foam is injected directly into the thin micro shell while it is still in the mould, instead of shaping it separately and sticking it on.
X-Static pads come with interwoven silver threads. Besides, they are fast-drying and antibacterial to help reduce odours. In addition, they keep the rider cold when it’s hot and a warm when it’s cold thanks to their thermal characteristics.
The SWEAT GUIDE pad wicks sweat away from your eyebrows and sunglasses.
BREAKAWAY CAMERA MOUNT:
The removable mount allows for a clean, seamless, and wobble-free attachment of an action camera, without needing to rely on annoying double-sided tape or cable ties. The practical, removable attachment fits well on the vents on top of the helmet, keeping the camera in position, without leaving marks on the helmet afterwards.
The strap system is easy to adjust, keeps the straps flat and prevents twisting – which helps save some energy when riding in the wind.
FLOAT FIT RACE:
The fitting system is small, lightweight and incredibly versatile. FLOAT FIT RACE offers a height adjustment range of approx. 22 mm and allows for precise pad width adjustments at the back of the head. The fit system is seamlessly connected with the MIPS system.
WHAT IS MIPS?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a slip-plane system within the helmet. It is designed to rotate inside the helmet to slow down or reduce the impact energy acting on the brain, which helps reduce head injuries caused by rotational impacts.
WHY IS MIPS IMPORTANT?
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration may cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. This stretching of the tissue caused by these motions may result in various types of brain injury. MIPS is designed with the intent to address rotational acceleration from impact.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, imitating the brain’s own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.
