    Comments about Bell Sweep Road Helmet - Nashbar Exclusive:

    I'm riding in southern AZ,typical temp 90-100. Excellent airflow. I wear a scarf or skull cap to prevent burning my scalp and my head doesn't over heat while wearing this helmet. Small crash last week and head was protected from a solid thump,no damage to head or helmet.

          Comments about Bell Sweep Road Helmet - Nashbar Exclusive:

          A very nice helmet- light, well made and lots of vents, But it is the retention system that was really a major step up from my previous (6 year old) helmet. It wasn't clear from the description what the "twin axis retention system" meant. Of course, one adjustment is to tighten the helmet head band around your head; the other adjustment is for front-to-back rotation of the retention band. Previous helmets with visors always slouched down in the front, obstructing my vision, and requiring frequent repositioning while riding. No longer a problem with this helmet. Also, it was easy to mount a Blackburn mirror on the visor.

                Not much else to say. I was replacing a Bell helmet and thought this was a no brainer. Not sure what Bell was thinking when they changed the design, but I would not buy another Bell helmet. I would have given it a zero if I could have.

                  Purchased because I wanted a decent helmet with a visor for cycle touring. Wow! The ventilation is better than my older (more expensive) helmet. It has infinite size adjustment given the fit system. The visor functions as expected and the little plugs to cap visor attachment points (if removed from helmet) don't detract from helmet's appearance. Couldn't be happier.

                    This is my third Bell Sweep helmet. This is a replacement for one that I was wearing when I crashed about a month ago. The old one did it's job in protecting my head. I consider the Sweep to be a very good mid-level helmet with good features (e.g., reasonably light weight, well ventilated, and very adjustable fit) also available at very attractive price.

                      I bought this helmet last year and immediately liked it. I live in a desert climate and I was amazed at how well it kept me cool. The visor was a plus for keeping the sun out of my eyes. Yesterday, it probably saved me from a skull fracture. I had a dog run into my front wheel at full speed and he knocked my bike out from under me. I landed hard on my right side, including the back of my head. The helmet cracked in several places but did not fall apart. I had a concussion but I think I probably would have fractured my skull without the helmet. I am going to buy another one. I have been using bell helmets for years and I think they offer a great value.

                          I replaced a Specialized Decibel helmet with the Sweep. Wanted a road helmet with a visor to keep sun out of my eyes. We have a lot of that in Arizona. Consider the Sweep to be of good quality and it was good value. Very satisfied with my choice.

                            Used this helmet the first time on a metric century. Best comment is, I never thought about it the entire ride. And the color matches my Fuji dead-on.
