    Comments about Bell Ukon Sport Helmet:

    Lightweight, comfortable and inexpensive. In fact, the first time I wore it I literally forgot to take it off as it is so light and comfortable. The visor is more functional than other helmets I have had in the past and comes down farther on the forehead. If you're looking for a status helmet, this isn't it, but if you want a great helmet at a great price, buy it.

        Comments about Bell Ukon Sport Helmet:

        Before I review this, here is my philosophy: "A helmet must do what it is built to do; protect my head." It's that simple. I buy a helmet to save the thing that I use to eat with, should the time come. Therefore, as long as I am not skimping on protection, I feel good about buying a helmet. With that said, I don't believe an expensive helmet will somehow do a better job at saving my noggin. On the contrary, a helmet constructed with light, flimsy materials will not likely do a better job than a slightly bulkier helmet. So, why spend excessively large amounts for something that (when it comes down to it) isn't any better; in fact it is worse. If I was that concerned about weight, I could drop it from my body.
        Well, here's to the actual review. This helmet has indeed saved my head more than a few times. Initial adjustment takes a little time. Pay attention to what you do because if you spend a little time now, you won't have to readjust later. Notice the clasp. It's meant to not pinch your chin when worn correctly. If you notice that you might pinch your skin while putting on this helmet, you have twisted the straps. The straps should lie flat against your face. If they aren't, something is wrong.The helmet should not slide back and forth on your head; use the adjusting wheel on the back to compensate for tightness in the rear.
        The sun visor is an excellent addition to the helmet. When paired with sunglasses, or in my case, transition lenses, it is a potent combination for great visibility sans glare. Ventilation is adequate; there is nothing to complain or brag about in this department. On the whole, with the exception of the initial adjustment which took a little time, riding with this helmet has been effortless. With all the money I saved on a helmet, I was able to get a couple of jerseys. Who could complain?

          (This helmet was recommended by tech support, orig. purchase, despite spec. listing did not fit).
          Good fit, great price. Was credited return shipping, as non fit error was not my fault. Kudos to Nashbar (on both points: tech. support, customer satisfaction).

            Comments about Bell Ukon Sport Helmet:

            First impressions, I would have given this one star. However, after taking an hour to re-route the straps over the temple band (thanks to another reviewer), and endlessly fiddling with the straps, I finally got it to fit. After riding with it for a few hours, it fits well enough that I don't think about it. The padding is basically non-existent, the venting is marginal (solid sides have no venting at all), the strap system is the worst I've seen. Yet, after all that, it does the job adequately at a rock-bottom price. I would not purchase this again. Get a better helmet if you can aford it and you value your time and comfort.

            Comments about Bell Ukon Sport Helmet:

            Purchased one for my wife and myself to prevent any head injuries while riding. The fit of the actual helmet is comfortable and vents well in warm weather. Will have to evaluate it again during the colder months.. Hopefully, we won't have to ever test how well it sustains impacts. What I don't like about this unit is how the straps fall on the side face. I find myself constantly tugging and adjusting the straps while riding.

                Comments about Bell Ukon Sport Helmet:

                I bought this to replace my 15 year-old Giro Ventura. Price looked right, great reviews, good-looking lid, good ventilation, construction seems solid enough. Loved it right up to the time I put it on and realized the straps are not oriented in the right direction. Instead of lying flat against the side of the face as the come under the ears, they orient horizontally and press into the skin. Sounds crazy and minor but it's just not comfortable. I looked at the six other helmets we have and none share this design. I restrapped it multiple times, trying to turn the strap over, turn the clips over, turn the tightening clips around...nothing worked. I'm more than a little surprised that no one else has commented on it. Anyway, it goes back to Nashbar first of the week and will check out the LBS for a replacement.

                    Enjoy having this new helmet with a new visor to block the sun on my commute. My old one (giro indicator) had the visor break off and the helmet was getting old. I feel like this one has better ventilation, but it's hard to quantify. It's lightweight and easy to adjust. Chin strap has anti-pinch clip, so I wince a little less when buckling with one hand.
