Product Description

Product Description

The Sanction is Bell's all-new lightweight, recession-busting full-face helmet. Weighing in at 950 grams, the fully-ventilated, low-profile helmet was designed with the younger rider in mind. Its sizing skews smaller than both its predecessor (the Bellistic) and the more robust Bell Drop, and is squarely aimed at BMX, Super-D and all-mountain riding. The moto-inspired style lines and graphics are youthful and contemporary, adding to the Sanctions' aggressive attitude.

My little dude loves this helmet. He's 4 and the medium fits him well (be aware these are kids sizes). The helmet of course gets a bit warm, but he loves how it looks and it definitely protects him better than a normal kids helmet would for when he is really shredding. I would not make him wear it for a ride to the grocery store, but when I take him to the local BMX jump track or the Mountain bike park, it is ideal. For instance he was going down this hill that ended in a bunch of medium sized rocks at Duthie Hill and when he got to the bottom he turned his front wheel and took a pretty good spill. I saw him crack right on the side of his face/helmet and the crowd of mtn bikers got quite. as soon as I rolled up to him he jumped up and said "I'm Okay!!", I know that wouldn't have happened if he was wearing anything but a full face helmet. Well worth the expense. I would rather pay $60 than have my 4yo mess up his face (and my wife would strangle me).

Select at least one size up because this is a junior helmet, but works perfect for adults. Great for enduro mountain bike.

I've always liked and used Bell products. So i felt comfortable ordering this helmet without trying it on in a store first. I'm on the upper end of the medium size so when i first tried it on it was tight, but after a few runs it packed out and fit just fine. Used it in my first downhill race and it felt great. I would recommend if you are starting to do more freeride/downhill riding where a X country helmet would not give adequate face protection.

Like other reviewers, I have always found Bell helmets to be very good. They fit my head great, so I got this for my dare devil 2.5 yo for his balance bike (his head size is that of an average 5 yo, and the S fit great). Soon after getting the helmet he tested it by face landing an endo, and he was completely fine. The helmet is comfy so he is remarkably willing to wear it every time he rides. Some Non-Bell helmet we used for skiing was so uncomfortable that we didn't get he to even get the neck buckle buckled. Yes this helmet rocks. He wears it, he's safe, he's proud of it, and he looks hardcore cute. Great padding, easy to use buckle, good vents, durable enamel, etc. We got it in the white/blue/black/yellow pattern for his first helmet (awesome), but are going for orange his second. Maybe throw a KTM sticker on it someday. Highly recommended for kids. I think full face helmets should be the top pick for kids. We are so happy with this Bell helmet, it's like it's part of the family now.

So my head met a rock at 30 mph after a jump went bad. Works pretty well if you ask me :)

Im to understand these helmets are meant for riders with smaller heads or young adults. Ima 38yo adult male with a big melon. I wear a large Bell regular biking helmet. This helmet is a tight, but not uncomfortable fit especially on the cheeks. I think it will be perfect once the cushioning wears in a little. Helmet is surprisingly light and doesn't limit field of view. cant beat the price. great buy!!

Color Name: Blue/BlkSize Name: Small Verified Purchase
I give this helmet 5 stars because of the fit and finish and because of the weight. My grandson of 5 years old always complained about how heavy the helmets were when we went shopping for one so I got online and read a number of reviews and due to the weight and the fact that the helmet was highly rated by many I decided to purchase this for my grandson. Although he would rather wear his bicycle helmet, which is even more light and has no chin strap...I told him that if he rides he must absolutely wear this helment and only this helmet. As you know a 5 year old doesn't believe in stopping and always wants to go very fast. They are looking around not paying attention to what they are doing so the full face helmet has come in very handy 2 times to date. I would highly...highly recommend this helmet.

this is a very good helmet with lots of padding and a ear hole on each side. The helemet does not dampen noise at all and blocks sun from your eyes very well. If you need a helmet and it is in your price range get this one.
