New Bell Helmets: Transfer 9, Stoker and Intersect

Helmets Interbike

Bell has been very active lately with the recent launch of their Full 9 full face helmet and the Super enduro style helmet. Not one to rest on their laurels, Bell is showing 3 new helmets for 2014 at Interbike. The Transfer 9 follows in the footsteps of the Full 9, but at half the price ($200). The Stoker is a more affordable all mountain helmet than the Super (the Stoker retails for just $70). The new urban style Intersect($60) follows the skate style Segment.

In this video, Bell Brand Manager Niki James shows us some of the highlights of these 3 new helmets.

    I was waiting for the Transfer 9 but it will tke a while to get in stock, so I had to go with the TLD D3, maybe in another moment, but I love my Bell Super also

  • Brian Johnson says:

    I’d really like to see more helmet producers integrate the MIPS system into their helmets for a truly new, safer product. All this “new” stuff is just new color, cheaper (or more expensive) materials and the new thing? GoPro mounts… how sad.

  • Kevin says:

    Helmet manufacturers are overlooking the need to put in some vents (symmetrical would be nice) to allow the attachment of a helmet light.
