Long-lasting Mountain Helmets
The fact that this is the world's best helmet value is kind of beside the point. With features like 18 massive vents, Fusion In-Mold Microshell, Blade Visor, GPS fit system, Channeled Ventilation and Cam-lock Levers, the Influx is a great helmet at any price.

FUSION IN-MOLD MICROSHELL
In-molding is the process of bonding the helmet’s Microshell to its EPS foam layer to provide a sturdier, more solid helmet. The EPS foam is shot into the thin Microshell cap when it is in the mold—thus the name—rather than formed separately and taped on later. This process was pioneered by Bell and is now the industry-wide standard for all high-end helmets. It’s now standard on all Bell adult and child helmets.
GPS FIT SYSTEM
For a glove-like fit, nothing beats Bell's exclusive Geared Positioning System (GPS). Offered on our marquee helmets—Ghisallo, X-Ray, Furio and Influx, —GPS delivers the ultimate one-hand adjustment for superior fit and comfort. Simply turn the dial to click in to the perfect custom fit.
Bell's Blade visor mixes dramatic looks with top-notch functionality. Horizontal I-beam pins keep the visor in place with minimal intrusion on the helmet surface. Bell ellipse logo plugs are included to give the helmet a seamless look when the visor is detached.
In order to maximize venting and minimize bulk, high-end helmets like the Sweep, Ghisallo and X-Ray now feature internal reinforcements. These composite skeletons fortify helmets the same way rebar makes concrete stronger. This allows for bigger vents, more advanced styling and lighter weight, while still meeting stringent safety standards.
Specially designed ventilation channels on the interior of the helmet's liner bring cool air in through the front, pass it over the head and flushes warm air out of the rear ports. You'll find some form of this feature on almost all Bell helmets, but our higher end helmets feature deeply sculpted channels that keep air moving whether you're bombing it at 30 mph, or huffing it uphill at single digit speed.
Bell's Cam-Lock strap levers make it easy to adjust the straps around your ears. Simply open the cam…position comfortably and close the lever. Done.
