STYLE MEETS TECH
The skate-style look never gets old. But that rigid bowl-style shell feel can be a drag. That’s where Segment shines. It has the classic shape of an old-school skate helmet, but its ingenious design gives it head-hugging flexibility. So it’s way more comfortable. How did we do it? A series of interior EPS foam segments are connected by a reinforcing skeleton—so it fits more like a comfortable cap than a helmet and still meets bike and skate safety standards.
BELL'S EPS TECHNOLOGY
Segmented EPS By adding a flexible fit technology to the interior EPS foam liner we’ve greatly improved the comfort of hardshell helmets. The liner is divided into eight segments, each connected to an internal skeleton which allows the helmet to flex and conform to the shape of your head. The result is a comfortable fit that feels more like a cap than a hard-shell helmet.
