With 17 cathedral-like vents and a Fusion In-Mold Microshell and bottom wrap defining its sculptural form, Ghisallo is a Renaissance marriage of art and science. The one-hand, micro-adjustable GPS system dials in a custom fit, making Ghisallo feel as light, comfortable and airy as it looks.

The Bell Ghisallo Road Bike Helmet is constructed with a fusion in-mold microshell, which utilizes the process of bonding the helmet's microshell to its EPS foam layer, rather than forming the two separately and taping them together later, to provide a sturdier, more solid helmet. This helmet also utilizes an in-mold bottom wrap to bring a greater level of durability and solidity by bonding microshell material to the lower half of the helmet as well. The Ghisallo features Bell's GPS (Geared Positioning System) fitting method to deliver an easy one-hand adjustment for the maximum in fit and comfort.

The Bell Ghisallo also features internal reinforcement through a composite skeleton that fortifies the helmet in the same way rebar makes concrete stronger, and cam-lock levers that make it easy to adjust the straps around your ears. For your comfort, this bicycle helmet includes 17 channeled vents that are specially designed to force cool, fresh air in through the front and around your head, while flushing warm air out of the rear ports. Bell's Ghisallo helmet comes in three sizes, weighs 300 grams, and complies with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's safety standards for bicycle helmets.

I bought this as a replacement for the same model I've been using for about 2-1/2 years. It fits well, has plenty of ventilation, and is easy to adjust. I think the rear size adjustment is much easier to use than the Giro helmets, which is nice if you sometimes wear an earwarmer or skullcap underneath.

My one compaint is the downside of having lots of ventilation holes - it makes the wind noise loud, sometimes making you think a car is approaching when it's not. Better safe than sorry, I guess.

Cool. I live and ride in south fl, yes even in the summer with the heat index of 106. Bell helmets have always treated me well and while they also make the Giro brand as well the prices for Bell seem more reasonable. Honestly construction wise I think they are all pretty much the same. While my old Bell Furio fit my head more comfortably, the Ghisallo has more (and larger) vents and is definitely cooler. Plus I needed a new red helmet to match my new bike...

I've had a Bell Ghisallo since 2001. It's comfortable, cool, and fits well (for some reason Bell fits my head, and Giro helmets to not). The big bonus came yesterday when I was riding to work and a car hit me. I broke a rib, punctured a lung, bruised my hip and shoulder, got a serious case of whiplash, and cracked my Ghisallo helmet. The helmet did it's job perfectly; My head is completely unscathed. The patron saint of cycling was with me yesterday for sure.

I ride a road bike and have really put this helmet to the test. I crashed about 3 years ago and landed on my head. The helmet did exactly what it was supposed to do...... it broke. My head was totally fine. I bought the exact same model.

Fast forward to last week. I am in a paceline going 25 miles per hour. One of the guys crashed in front of me and there was nothing I could do, but crash. I flew over the handle bars and smashed up everything. I think I landed on my head first or second, but I really can't say. I hit hard. My helmet broke...... perfectly. My head was totally fine.

I just received my third Bell Ghisallo helmet today. It is cool with the big vents and compared to some models, cheap. I never ride without a helmet and neither should you!

This is my first Bell helmet. I always used Giro helmets, but they are very expensive. I was a bit skeptical about trying a Bell helmet, because when I tried them in the past, the shape did not fit me well. That was over 10 years ago, and things change. I tried one at a local store to get an idea on the size and fit, then made my purchase. I have been pleasantly surprised! The fit is ideal and the adjustability is very easy to use. I have used this helmet on several rides and I find it to be very comfortable and light. I recall seeing another review that mentioned sweat dripping down the person's face. I also experienced this, so I went back to my prior habit of wearing a terry cloth headband. This catches any sweat and is a simple solution to the problem. Overall, I am very pleased with the helmet.

This helmet literally saved my life. Just yesterday, April 10, 2011, I took a hard spill off my bike at 35 MPH and even though my head hit the pavement violently and several times, I walked away with some abrasions and just a small concussion. The helmet cracked in several spots, but I never felt a thing. Some of the people who were riding with me, thought I was going to die for sure but the helmet died for me. Excellent helmet for the price and I just ordered the same brand and model since I know the protection it affords. Thank you, Bell Ghisallo, for saving my life.

Pros: Great Ventilation
Variable-thickness interchangeable padding
Adjustable fit
No bucket-head look, seems to look small on my head.

Cons:
Makes a wind-noise starting at around 18 mph. I stopped noticing it after a week.
Straps not flat around ears. Again, used to it after a week.

Overall: Outstanding helmet for the price.

This is my second Bell Ghisallo helmet. The first one saved my life in a crash. I hit the ground pretty hard and broke my hip. My helmet cracked but i didn't have so much as a headache. I considered other Bell helmets, but this one fits me really well and it's proven it can take quite a punch.
