Four years ago, Bell unveiled a state-of-the-art technology so profound it created a paradigm shift in the way companies approach helmet technology. Bell’s engineering team sat down to develop a solution that would effectively address all forms and speeds of impact, and thus FLEX was born. Despite being introduced to the industry nearly 4 years ago, Bell Helmets’ FLEX technology still stands as the benchmark of head protection technology in the helmet industry. FLEX continues to outperform anything developed by the competition with its exclusive “progressive layering” technology, protecting riders against low-, mid-, and high-speed impacts. Bell’s continued dominance over the last 4 years is why it has been the leader in head protection products and the go-to helmets for riders such as 2017 450MX champion Eli Tomac and Cooper Webb.
The informative video below explains the technology that offers a short an easy to way to learn more about how it works and why it has been such an important development in the industry.
