Best Choice To Protect Your Head!

Been logging a lot of time in this helmet over the last few weeks, since I bought it. I'm only going to dock it half a point and on only one area sweat control. Yes, I do get a nice air flow over my head, but the built-in pads dogged saturated, nonetheless. Not a major deal as I've learned to lean to the side and press the brow of the helmet to drain the excess sweat.

Fit is easily adjustable, comfort level is excellent, and the helmet is light, to the point I do not notice I'm wearing one. An added plus is that bright color give you a real high visibility if you share the road with motor vehicles.

If you value what's inside your head, this is the helmet to protect it!

Like the fit and look

Use for road riding, Sizing seemed to be on par with other helmets (Bell, Giro, LG) as I wear Medium in all. Bought because of top ranking in recent bike helmet safety ratings, hope I never have to put to the test but nice piece of mind knowing that I am using one of the safest helmets on the market and got at very reasonable price on sale.

Fits perfectly on a Bell head (round head ie. not long and narrow)

The front of the helmet sits low on the forehead, bent low, looking up the front edge of the helmet is visible. This is acceptable.

Great value

I own this and a Z20. Honestly, although the Z20 has a little more padding (and oriented slightly differently), the Stratus is actually very similarand less expensive. I have the white Status with reflective silver, which is perfect for my commutes.

Fantastic helmet

This is both light and comfortable.

It fits well both on its own or with a balaclava underneath it. So far, the improved forehead pad has worked well to keep sweat out of my eyes. And it is definitely worth the peace of mind to know that I am writing with MIPS protection.

Great Helmet - just not a fan of flat white

Love this helmet, very aero, but not a fan of the flat white color. I wish it was actually gloss. This newest version has reflective stickers on it too, which is a bonus. Very comfortable.

Nice sharp looking and functioning lid

Good clean and crisp design to it. Light Weight and comfortable. It could easily cost twice as much.

Distinctive headgear for those who want to be seen.

There's nothing I don't like about the Bell high viz green helmet. The color, design, fit, adjustment are things that make this helmet great.

Pretty close.

Helmet fit is pretty personal - although it would seem that a few more adjustments could make it more universal. I seem to be right in between a Medium and Large size on Bell helmets - no matter the model.

I went back and forth on the size of this, and went with the large, although it is just a bit low on my brow.

What I like about this is the ventilation and comfort. Much better than my previous Volt.

The look is a kinda interesting as well - less Gieger like Alien, and maybe a bit more of some kind of android head of the future. With the fit issues, it makes me wonder if my head is just weird.

A good road helmet that I feel confident about strapping on each day

It's a helmet. it's a Bell. It's got that new-fangled MIPS stuff. Fit-wise, it's comfortable on my gigantic melon, lightweight (not that it matters much... because, well... gigantic melon). The adjustments are good, the airflow is good. All around a very good helmet.

Very comfortable, with good airflow

Comfortable, with good airflow. Fits well, with the straps laying flat (not something all helmets can claim). I've done a couple of 5 hour rides with it so far, and am very pleased with its performance. Good fitting gear should go relatively unnoticed after several hours in the saddle. The best helmet, in my opinion is one I don't notice after a day on the bike. I definitely recommend it. Coupled with BTDs aggressive discounts, I couldn't pass up the price point on this MIPS helmet.

Best fitting helmet I have used in 40 years of serious cycling

I started with the first white Bell helmet, switched to MSR for a while, used Giros for years and last bought a Mavic Cosmic Pro which only lasted a year before it started falling apart. I bought the Bell Stratus in part because of the bright yellow color, but fell in love with it due to its fit and quietness. The wind noise is lower than any recent helmet I have used. The only issue is that the strap is JUST BARELY long enough. Would like it to be at least a half inch longer.

I don't even feel the lightweight well ventilated Bell helmet during an aggressive ride, or just cruising.

I use the Bell Stratus to protect my head, from a previous Head Trauma and the MIPS is important to help me incase of another fall.

Great Helmet!

Purchased to replace a crash-damaged Bell Volt that I liked a lot (and did its job). But my new Stratus MIPS seems lighter, more comfortable, easier to adjust, and has surprisingly better air flow. Hopefully I won't need to test the MIPS for its effectiveness
