Bell Moto-3 Helmet

When design is good, why change it? This is what Bell realised when they re-released the Moto-3, a helmet first launched in the late 1970’s.

A motocross inspired design, the Moto-3 oozes with street-cred. With an aggressive vented chinbar, striking ‘BELL MOTO III’ type face plastered on both sides, and a range of bold colours to suit everyone, this is no shrinking violet.

The design may be from the 70’s, however thankfully safety has been brought up to today’s standard. An EPS-lined chinbar, a lightweight fibreglass composite shell construction and DOT certification, means your melon’s protected when things don’t go according to plan.

Whilst the Moto-3 is big on design, it’s certainly not big on features. But then again it doesn’t pretend to be. Sure the vents can’t be closed, it’s fairly noisy at speed and the terrycloth liner is straight from the 70’s, but who cares? The price is right, and the design is top-notch.

One great feature of the Moto-3 is the over-sized opening, meaning visibility is excellent. It also means that you can wear almost any pair of goggles you want, leading to a myriad of different choices and applications – we are especially keen on the combination with 100 Percent’s Barstow range. With a removable five-snap visor, you can also mix and match colours, or remove it all-together for a different look entirely.

Available in three shell and EPS sizes for a tailored fit, you can be sure you don’t end up looking liking a bobble-head if your head is on the smaller side.

Just as comfortable on the road as it is on the dirt, the Moto-3 is a great option if you’re looking for a helmet that’s big on style, but not on price.
