Bell - Z20 Mips
Optimized shock absorption: the Z20 MIPS Ghost by Bell
Bell's unique "Progressive Layering" energy management system consists of two layers of EPS foam with different densities, each with thin hard shell coverage complemented by integrated MIPS. This has optimized the shock absorption properties while achieving a more compact helmet shape with a slimmer design and maximum ventilation.
Thanks to the smart combination of MIPS and its fitting system, the Z20 sets new standards in fit and comfort. The outstanding fit is further enhanced by the Float Fit Race harness system, which features height and width adjustment, an easily adjustable dial and comfortable sweat-absorbing X-Static pads.

A two-layer structure of the inner helmet with EPS foam of different degrees of hardness, which can better absorb and distribute the impact energy.
MIPS is a sliding plane system within the helmet designed to slow or prevent the amount of energy that is transmitted to or from the head.
Float Fit Race
Bell's latest fitting system is slim, lightweight and incredibly versatile. Float Fit Race? offers a 22 mm height adjustment and additionally a finely rastered width adjustment of the cushions at the back of the head. The system is seamlessly connected to the MIPS, which helps the Zephyr "disappears" as soon as you put it on.
The X-Static ® pads are woven with silver threads. They are quick-drying and antibacterial in their action against odour formation. In addition, the X-Static ® pads give the driver a cooling and warming feeling in the cold due to their thermal properties.
Deep air intakes above the forehead bring cooling air into the helmet, which is guided around the head by a matrix of air ducts and ensures a holistically cool helmet climate.
In the in-mold construction, the robust polycarbonate outer shell is bonded to it in a single pass during foaming of the impact absorbing EPS inner shell. This makes the helmet even more resistant without any additional weight. This production process also makes it possible to form significantly better ventilation systems and openings. In-Mold helmets are lighter than traditional helmets and have much better ventilation systems.
