Bell Sanction 2 and Sanction 2 DLX Helmets $120/180
Full-face helmets on The Radavist? Well, yeah. A lot of us are using them intermittently on a variety of rides and the new Bell Sanction 2 helmets come in at approachable price points for folks that might be full-face curious including younger riders, those new to the bike park, BMX track, or riders looking to add a full-face helmet to their kit
Both Sanction 2 helmets draw on the DNA of the Full-10 Spherical. Launched in early 2023, the Full-10 comes equipped with Spherical TechnologyTM and a bevy of other technical features that made it Bell’s most advanced bicycle helmet ever. Sanction 2 carries through many similar characteristics such as Mips technology, sleek styling, and ample vents that put the rider first.
Available in two models – Sanction 2 DLX, comes standard with Mips Essential to help reduce impact forces in the event of a crash. It also offers rider-focused comforts such as Ionic+ TM antimicrobial padding, which uses embedded silver metalized yarn for odor control, Fidlock® buckle system that allows for easy, one-handed closure and an adjustable flying bridge visor. The cheek pads are removable for ease of washing. The DLX model weighs 1080 grams in the medium size.
Sanction 2 features the same ABS shell and EPS liner as the DLX version but is available without Mips Essential. It is also available in XXS (in certain colors) specifically designed to accommodate younger riders. Sanction 2 weighs in at just 1040 grams in the medium size.
