Bell Full Flex helmet review£80.00

Superior pisspot lid

BikeRadar score4.5/5

The Full Flex may seem expensive for a pisspot lid but there’s plenty of technology and attention to detail to back up the price tag.

For starters, it’s designed to remain safe after multiple impacts. Detailing is on point too, with a goggle loop at the rear and mesh covering the main and ear vents. The build quality really does make other skate style lids look inferior.

Our medium helmet was supposed to fit 55-59cm heads but riders towards the top of that bracket found it a bit of a squeeze. Get the fit right though and the Full Flex is really comfortable – so much so that we didn’t feel the need to take it off during long, sunny evening sessions at the jumps.

Hearing isn’t affected by the mesh over the ears, and the vents do a good job of keeping your bonce cool considering their small size.
