Bell’s Z20 is so abundantly vented you might suffer from brain freeze if the temps dip below 45 degrees.
But in hot weather, this airy helmet is a fine choice. The Float Fit Race harness offers more than enough adjustability to accommodate all head shapes and sizes, and the No-Twist Tri-Glide fasteners keep the straps flush and comfortable.
Despite the 18 vents, the Z20 is fairly heavy.
But Bell’s progressive layering system, with two layers of hard-shelled EPS foam, is a solid trade-off for the added weight.
