Your helmet your way.

Buying a new helmet can be a real drag sometimes, especially if you're really picky like I am. Finding something that works, is comfortable, and matches your bike, gear, and/or style can be damn near impossible. You can always shell out to have your new helmet painted if you can find someone to do the work, but that's not always an option. What if, and I'm just spitballing here, what if you could order a custom-painted lid straight from the factory? A lid that you designed yourself? Sound rad, right? Bell Helmets certainly thinks so and has just announced a custom design program that allows customers to design one of a kind helmets.

Bell has teamed up with German custom helmet company Helmade to provide what Bell is calling the world's first consumer-level helmet customization program. How's it all work? Well, you just mosey on over to Bell's website and use the new interactive customization platform to create your very own custom painted Bullit, Custom 500, Moto-3, or Star MIPS helmet.

“For more than 60 years, we have been committed to setting new standards in the industry, and in the spirit of that tradition, we are very excited to partner with Helmade and become the first manufacturer to offer our riders the ability to customize their own helmets,” said Chris Sackett, Bell Helmets vice president. “Helmets have long been something that riders use to express their personal style, and this platform is going to allow riders to take that to an entirely new level with some of our most popular helmets.”

“Helmade and Bell share a passion for racing and a keen understanding of what riders are seeking, and it’s thrilling to now provide everyday riders with access to the same customization benefits that have long be exclusive to professionals,” said Christian Möhring, helmade CEO. “This partnership is a critical step in our ongoing mission to make next-level custom helmet designs more accessible to riders of every level, and we’re honored to take this step with a brand as iconic as Bell.”
