Bell introduces new fit system
Bell Sports has introduced a new fitting system for some of their helmet models, called True Fit. It reduces strap adjustments to just the neck strap. We like the concept, and initial fittings show that it works reasonably well on most riders. You can still get a better fit with fully adjustable straps if you are willing to put in more adjustment time
We think that True Fit helmets will be very useful for people who trade helmets around between riders, rental establishments, riders doing quick test rides at stores and any organizer handing out large numbers of helmets at an event.
We have a page up with a longer assessment of the new system.
