Schuberth product expert and Women Riders Now Co-chairwoman, Sarah Schilke, reviews the third generation of the popular modular helmet specifically designed to fit a woman’s face. This latest version gets updated comfort, construction, and visibility features while maintaining the previous version’s trusted safety, ventilation, and aerodynamics.
Thanks to the rise in popularity of retro open face helmets like the Bell Custom 500, 3/4 helmets with a faceshield are getting more attention. They give those of us who want the fun of a retro open face, but with more protection. Last fall Scorpion introduced the EXO-CT220, a 3/4 helmet that combines many features of its high priced competitors but at the budget price of just $149.99.
Bell Helmets was an early adopter coming out a with a full line of helmets that remind of us of the 60s and 70s with that close-to-the-head look (appears as if there’s limited foam inside), but with all the modern helmet technology built in. I received the Bell Custom 500 helmet to test while riding across the western states. I fell in love with it from the moment I put it on.
