Bell Helmets, pulling inspirational DNA from their XR Spherical helmet, which was launched back in April, means that the new Falcon XR, according to Bell, “shares the same Spherical Technology powered by MIPS, and other characteristics, like deeper road coverage and unmatched cooling, offering all-around performance and value, for nearly any type of riding such as commuting or gravel riding during the day or the night. ”

Add the optional/removable Blackburn Grid rear LED light for those rides at night.

The Marketing Director at Bell, SJ Owen said, “Building off the success of the XR Spherical helmet, cyclists can now enjoy similar industry-leading features such as Mips Evolve in a well-equipped but budget-friendly helmet. With multiple models with and without the Blackburn Grid COB rear light or the visor in the Falcon XRV, cyclists now have a truly versatile go-anywhere-at-any-time helmet.”

The line also offers rider-focused comforts like Ionic+ antimicrobial padding, with silver metalized yarn for odor control, the Fidlock buckle system, sweat guide, and No-Twist Tri-Glides straps. The XR line also uses the Fusion In-Mold Polycarbonate Shell, featuring the MIPS Evolve and Bell’s Float Systems.

The Medium XR weighs in at 305 grams.

  1. I hate to burst your bubble, but safety should never be compromised for the sake of style. While the LED rear light may look cool, it’s more important to prioritize helmets that meet stringent safety standards. Don’t let the hype blind you to what really matters.

    • Sorry, but I have to disagree. The design of the new Bell helmets is far from sick. It’s just another flashy gimmick to attract attention. Safety should be the priority, not hashtag-worthy looks. Stick to the basics and protect your noggin with a reliable helmet, my friend.

  2. I don’t get the hype. They may look futuristic, but do they actually provide better safety? I’ll stick to my trusty old helmet that has been tested and proven. Safety over style any day.

  3. Sorry, but I don’t get the hype. LED lights on a helmet? Seems like a gimmick to me. Safety and functionality should be the priority, not just looking futuristic. Give me a reliable helmet any day over flashy lights.

    • Are you serious? A disco ball on a helmet? That’s just plain ridiculous! Rear lights on helmets are essential for visibility and safety, especially in low-light conditions. Don’t undermine the importance of safety measures with silly suggestions.

  4. Sorry, but I just don’t get the hype. Safety is important, no doubt, but do we really need LED lights on our helmets? Seems more like a fashion statement than a practical feature. Just my two cents.

    • Rear lights on helmets are essential for safety, not for sparking a party. It’s about visibility, preventing accidents, and protecting lives. So, let’s leave the disco balls for the dance floor and focus on staying alive on the road.

    • Seriously? LED lights on helmets? That’s just another unnecessary gadget distracting riders on the road. Focus on riding safely instead of relying on flashy accessories. #safetyfirst

    • While a reflective jacket is important for visibility, a rear light on a helmet adds an extra layer of safety. It increases your visibility from different angles, especially in low-light conditions. Safety should never be compromised, and every precaution helps.

    • Sorry to burst your bubble, but those Falcon helmets are nothing more than overpriced plastic junk. Save your credits for something actually useful, like a hyperdrive upgrade.

    • Nah, disco lights with helmets? That’s a bit much, don’t you think? Focus on the helmet’s functionality and safety features instead of flashy gimmicks. Let’s prioritize protecting our heads over impressing people on the dance floor.
