Bell's popular Sweep Helmet is a mainstay of the pro peloton and XC circuit thanks to its blend of comfort, durability and weight savings.

The in-mold construction and internal reinforcement protect against impacts, while 20 massive over-sized vents promote breathability and shave grams.

Bell's proven Twin Axis Gear™ (TAG) retention device adjusts to the up/down position of the occipital lobe (the bump on the back of the head) as well as circumferentially. Cam-lock levers provide ear adjustment at the strap, and Thermodynamic X-Static™ padding helps keep the helmet anti microbial and quick drying.

The Bell Sweep includes the VPV™ adjustable visor and visor plugs. Available in various colors. Actual weight: 325 grams (Size Medium).

Sizing:

  • Small: 20" - 21.75" (51cm - 55cm)
  • Medium: 21.75" - 23.25" (55cm - 59cm)
  • Large: 23.25" - 24.75" (59cm - 63cm)

Great company Great products Great deals

Like most cyclists I'm picky about my gear. When you find an item that fits, it's comfortable and reliable I usually don't switch brands, so it is with the Bell Sweep Helmet. I replace a helmet every year, it's essential! My helmet of choice is the Bell Sweep. Bike tires direct is fabulous with its sales!

I'm very happy with the Sweep.

I ride an ElliptiGO which is a cross between a regular bicycle and an elliptical at the gym. The reason I mention that is because there is no seat on the ElliptiGO and my head is level when I ride, unlike on a road bike. I've been trying to find a helmet that has better ventilation than my inexpensive Specialized, and fits better than my Garneau (Medium-too big), but has comfortable straps. The first helmet I bought was the Giro Pneumo in a medium, Highlight Yellow. I loved the great visibility of the color for road riding but I just hated the scratchy, thin straps on it. I was really disappointed in the straps. I went to four local shops and tried on helmets before ordering the Bell Sweep in small and medium. The medium fits perfectly and the straps are thicker than the Giro and much more comfortable. After my 40 mile ElliptiGO ride with an altitude gain of 2,900 ft, in 90 degree weather, my hair wasn't wet like it would have been in my Specialized helmet. I'm very happy with the Bell Sweep. I chose the White/Black/Green Esher in medium and the Plumb Sparkler in Small. The medium Giro Pneumo and small Bell Sweep have been returned.

I want to mention that until I wrote this review and looked back at the BikeTiresDirect page on the Bell Sweep, I didn't realize that my Bell Sweep Helmet in White/Black/Green Esher - Medium, is not the same colors as the one on the page. Mine is mostly flat black and white, with a tad of kelly green, quite unlike the one on the website with the green front half. I don't care, though.

It's my second Bell Sweep Helmet

I find this helmet very comfortable, easy to adjust and well ventilated, while not too costly. For me it's a great deal.

My favorite helmet

The Bell fits an oval shaped head perfectly. Think the overall looks is fabulous.

I still don't like the strap snaps, they don't lie flush with the side of your face. Can't figure out why. Wish Bell would address that.

The sweatband are a bit weak for wear...could be a bit for sturdy.

Not Impressed

The rear fins on this helmet are the weak link. If you crash, try to land on the front. The retention dial is poor as well. You just can't get that fine tune adjustment. I emailed Bell recently for new inner brow pads. Never heard back from them. For a top notch helmet, try [...].

Great helmet for a reasonable price.

This helmet has most of the features and style that the more expensive helmets do but at a much more reasonable price. Plenty of adjustment and lots of vents.

Nice fit, light and comfortable!

Sharp looking helmet and very comfortable. I love the fit and how lightweight it is. I rode my first double century this year and had no more than normal neck fatigue. I'm very glad I chose this helmet, I have quite a few miles on it and zero complaints. If you're in the market for a helmet, I recommend you check into this one.

always good, this one just a little worse

I've been buying the Bell Sweep for many iterations of helmets now, probably for 6 years. On my 3rd one. One substantial head banging crash on the road trashed my helmet, saved my noggin, and I have high praise for the helmet. I was a little disappointed with my last purchase however, they've really cheapened up on the manufacturing process of the thing. It's a little nit-picky, but It used to have a better finnish, better labels, nicer hardware. Now there's pock marks in the foam, the graphics are less detailed, and the stickers are peeling off already. Maybe they're about to retire it.

Fits Like a Glove, Light Enough to go almost Un-noticed

I have been waiting for a reason to pull the trigger on a new lid. A fellow commuter cyclist I work with noticed that my old helmet was circa 2001 - way overdue for replacement. I am a bit brand-loyal to Bell since I have always owned the dirt bike versions. I blind-ordered one that on paper fit my head. Wow! Awesome fit! The visor is stiff enough to withstand the tension of my Gore rain cover when added. I am very pleased.

Versatile Helmet

I commute so I dont need a full road bike helmet, and I didn't really want to get a mtn bike helmet. However I need a visor and very few road bike helmets have them. I found this Bell Sweep to be a nice, low-profile and sleek helmet that has a detachable visor and can easily be used for road-biking or mtn biking. Fits very comfortably. I tried on other helmets at the bike shop but none fit as good as this Bell. Great helmet, great looking, great fitting and light weight. Has an easily adjustable strap in the back with a dial and tabs to adjust around the ears.

Comfortable helmet and a very good value for the money

I'm a big fan of Bell helmets, I survived a very serious crash in one of their helmets during a race, and a minor crash in another case when an animal darted under my front wheel, Both helmets were cracked and damaged (as they are designed to do upon impact) and most importantly, I sustained NO head injuries in either case, where there was visible damage to the helmets. Other helmets may work just as well, but I feel loyal to Bell because they've saved my noggin twice! The Sweep is a comfortable fit, very adjustable, and although not super light, light enough to ride many hours in comfort. Every now and then I have needed to make minor adjustments to the straps, but the adjustment mechanism in the back makes it VERY easy to do a quick adjusment to either tighten or loosen while on the fly. Also, BTD is my favorite online site for having items in stock when I usually need them, at very competitive prices.

Works like it should

Went over the handlebars headfirst at 28mph. Helmet cracked on the rear fins, but I didn't realise I had landed on my head until I got back to my car and saw the damage. This helmet fits, is very comfortable and WORKS!! It probably saved my life. Highly recommended.

Awesome helmet!

This is the most comfortable helmet Ive found. Its light weight, plenty of vents, and feels secure on my head, and doesn't feel like its just on top of my head, but actually protecting it. In a crash I had where I went over the bars and landed head first at about 35mph, I destroyed the helmet, but my head was fine, no concussion or any other head injury's to speak of. I definitely put this helmet to the ultimate test, and it passed with flying colors. I wouldnt go with any other helmet between the comfort, style, and the proof that it keeps your head intact after an encounter with the pave.

Bell Sweep Saved My Head

I had a crash coming off a steep descent so the speed was high. As my bike and I rolled to a complete stop , my helmethead properly fitted using the twin axis gear fit system took a serious hit to the pavement. I was dazed,carbon frame cracked, road rash sure - but my helmet passed a test I hope none of you cycling enthusiast have to go thru.

I have retired that Bell Sweep bc it was cracked & had damage to the back where most of the impact was. I am ordering a new Bell Sweep but the only change will be the color. STRONG RIDING TO ALL
