New Bell Gage Lightweight Road Race Helmet

Bell Gage lightweight road cycling helmet

Bell Helmets, after announcing they’re separating activities from sister brand Giro a bit, has just announced the Gage, a lightweight race helmet.

Weighing in at a very respectable 233g (claimed), it looks to have some massive cooling vents. There are 26 vents in all, spaced around internal reinforcements and a in-molded Fusion microshell. It uses Bell’s TAG fit system and includes X-Static padding to keep odor at bay. BikeBiz is reporting it’ll be available in the UK this summer, we’re waiting to hear back on U.S. availability. Word is it’ll come in several colors, including a BMC team edition.

The helmet is named after Gage Avenue in Bell, CA, reportedly home of the world’s first automotive speed shop, Bell Auto Parts.

Very nice job! I love how the surface shown in red flows over the white section but then dives under the black area. Nice melding of the different elements.
