Bell Ghisallo Road Helmet - Special Colors
Race-proven at the highest levels of professional cycling, the Bell Ghisallo helmet features a sleek, streamlined design loaded with high-tech features. Its name pays special homage to the Madonna del Ghisallo, the patron saint of cycling whose famed chapel in northern Italy majestically overlooks Lake Como, and it's only natural that the protector of cyclists has been tasked with ensuring your head stays cool, comfortable and safe. The fusion in-mold microshell provides incredible strength while the internal reinforcement provides room for massive vents and less material with no sacrifice to protection. And achieving a perfect fit has never been simpler via Bell's GPS (Geared Positioning System) which provides one-hand adjustment.
  • Fusion In-Mold Microshell construction ensures solid performance and lightweight durability
  • GPS retention system provides a precise fit
  • Internal reinforcement allows for larger vents and less material without sacrificing protection
  • 20 channeled vents deliver plenty of cooling air

    A very good helmet that fits my head, the only drawback, the pads wear out before the helmet, even with washing.

    Comments about Bell Ghisallo Road Helmet - Special Colors:

    This is my second Bell Ghisallo. I bought my first one in 2002, and it is still going strong. I have never had any problem other than a worn out pad.

    I just bought the second so I can have a back up. Bell is not making this helmet at this time so that's the reason for the purchase. And it was one half the price of my first one. So a great bargain.

      Comments about Bell Ghisallo Road Helmet - Special Colors:

      I've always used Bell helmets because they fit my ridiculously large head the best. This one looks sleeker than my others and has great ventilation. The only downside is you have to remember the sunscreen for your forehead because the vents are so large (but that's a good thing). The price was a steal, so why not?

        The fit is just great and feels as if you are not wearing a helmet. The openings are big, therefore allowing great ventilation.

          Comments about Bell Ghisallo Road Helmet - Special Colors:

          I'll spare the details, but I crashed about a month ago, and I walked away. In addition to bad road rash, my head did hit the pavement. At first I only saw a small one-inch scrape and a small dime-size dent on the side of the helmet. Upon closer examination there are four cracks in the foam liner; two large cracks from the point of impact from the side to top, and two smaller cracks along the top. Without the helmet on that's my cracked skull on the side of the road, and I'm in the hospital with a concussion or worse. After finally getting off the payment, (several persons stopped to help) I got back on my bike (no real damage) and rode home. I ordered a new Ghisallo helmet the same day! Definitely worth the money!

              I was having a hard time deciding to buy a helmet online, but glad I did. Ghisallo fits great and vents well. Nashbar got it to me quickly and with no hassles. Great price, too, considering bike shops in my area wanted 130.00 and up for a decent looking piece of styrofoam!!

                This was a decent helmet but I truly could not find anything that would set it appart from it's similar but less expensive cousin, the Bell Influx helmet. Budget concious and personal choice I guess. I didnt think it fit as easy and nice as the influx either.

                Comments about Bell Ghisallo Road Helmet - Special Colors:

                I've ridden with this helmet for years and like the fit and ventilation. Two weeks ago I went over the front wheel in a group ride and landed straight on my helmet. The helmet crack in several blaces and abraded, but never moved out of place. Other than a very sore neck and some road rash, I was fine. Needless to say I bought the same helmet since I know it works as a helmet should. My only issue is with the details on the newer one. There was a ring of foam around the injection site that touched my head in the top center. I had to scrape it away with my fingernail, but after that it fit just like my old one. Also, the right side pad was narrower than the old one and wasn't as comfortable. I swapped the pad with the old one and will work with Bell to get a replacement.

                  avid cyclist who enjoys doing endurance road rides quickly. looking for a summer helmet and found this beauty. its a little on the heavier side 300g+ but doesn't feel like it. fits snug on my head and the ventilation works great. I ride on a Tri/TT bike and I dont get a pinch on the back of my neck like other helmets.
