Bell Helmets: An American Legacy
More world champions have worn Bell Helmets than all other helmet brands combined. From Grand Prix racing through the Indy 500 to Olympic cycling, Bell helmets have played a vital role in protecting sportsmen and women for nearly 50 years.
Bell began as a small auto parts store in a suburb of Los Angeles. Growing under the benevolent leadership of Roy Richter, Bell became a leader in safety equipment for auto racing, motorcycling and then bicycling. His commitment to creating great product through a close connection with the sport, along with his trust of and care for the people who worked for him, turned Bell from a one-man operation into a multi-million dollar enterprise..
In 1975 Bell introudced the first truly effective bicycle helmet - the Bell Biker, which was introduced after two years of prototyping. The first bike helmet with a full expanded polystyrene (EPS) liner, this became the standard by which other bike helmets were measured. Variations on this style would be around for a decade.
His legacy lives on today in Bell's commitment to racing, quality and innovation
