Bell - Sidetrack II
Just like their adult helmets, this Youth Sidetrack II Cycle Helmet features the same tough and protective fusion In-Mould polycarbonate shell. Pioneered by Bell, this design sees the tough and durable outer bonded directly to the shock-absorbing EPS foam inner. This gives you a helmet that can take the knocks of daily mountain bike use and offers excellent protection in the event of a crash.
Getting the right fit is essential for safety and here you'll get the easy to use and precise adjustment of the Ergo fit system. The dial system allows one-handed adjustment, even on the go. Complementing this are the No-twist tri-glides. These quick-adjust fasteners keep the straps flat and positioned perfectly. Less fuss. More mountain biking time. Comfort is also enhanced thanks to the Sweat Guide brow padding, this draws away moisture before it can cause discomfort or sting the eyes.
MIPS System (Multi-directional Impact Protection System)
The Youth Sidetrack II Helmet is designed to dissipate the energy from a crash and this is achieved via the EPS body and the MIPS System (Multi-directional Impact Protection System). This MIPS is integrated with the fit system to give a sleeker, lighter and less complex helmet that fits closely to the head.
What is MIPS?
• MIPS is a Brain Protection System
• Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
• The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
• MIPS adds protection
