When Bell introduced the Bullit and then brought back the Moto-3, they were both instant successes and continue to be, too. Now, for the Fall 2018 season, Bell introduced a handful of new colorways and designs, not to mention another retro-inspired helmet altogether. The Bullit and Moto-3 continue to ride the wave of love around vintage design but are pulled directly from Bell’s own heritage and that’s exactly what the all-new Eliminator does as well.
The Eliminator draws on the very first Bell helmets which were auto racing helmets, not motorcycle helmets. The tall chin bar, dirt skirt, and simple, metal-ringed intake holes were designed for the high safety standards of car racing both on the road and off. Coincidently, those features work perfectly for life on two-wheels as well. If you’re a fan of putting two wheels in the dirt, the eliminator’s design helps keep dust from making its way under and into your helmet. The rudimentary venting on the crown is meant to work with simple air and ventilation systems to keep you cool and breathing fresh air. perfect if you find yourself, in say, a bone-dry desert.
The Eliminator is currently available for pre-order only, but the new pallet classic and neo-classic stripes and designs for the Bullitt, Moto-3 and Pulse are all available now.
