Bell was ready with the right answer for that question. The original half shell Super trail helmet incorporated a ridged injection molded plate that later became the foundation for the chinbar attachment in the Super 2R.
“It was all very intentional,” revealed Muller. “We discussed the idea of the chinbar three seasons ahead of the Super, but initially didn’t think consumers were ready for it just yet. But when we did unveil it, we felt like the timing was spot on, and judging by what has happened in the marketplace since, I’d say we were right.”
