Last month Bell Helmets revealed the Rogue, a new type of open-face helmet designed with the cruiser market in mind. The Rogue is an open-face helmet that provides increased coverage against the elements, bridging the gap between open-face and full-face helmets and mimicking the look of a half-helmet worn with a bandanna. It features an adjustable and removable muzzle that allows riders increased comfort and protection. The muzzle also serves as a substitute for a bandanna—cruiser riders who like to wear bandannas will now be able to keep the same look in harsher weather conditions.
“For years, our sales reps and dealers have had cruiser riders lamenting about the need to lose their bandannas for an open face helmet that’s got the attitude and style that they seek, but also provides some facial coverage for wet, cold or other harsh riding conditions,” said Chris Sackett, General Manager, Bell Powersports. “Rogue fulfills this need from both a standpoint of function and form, with an edgy design that makes it hands down the meanest-looking helmet we’ve ever made. So far, pre-orders from our dealers have been extremely strong, and we’re excited to see the consumer reception for this unique new design.”
The Rogue is made of lightweight composite shell and offers ultra-comfortable, washable and removable interior. DOT-approved, it’s available in three sizes and several colors: Solid Black, Solid Matte Black, Army Green and Solid Gunny finishes. It will be available at Bell helmets dealers in March.
Definitely, the Rogue is one of the coolest, one of the most innovative products for cruiser riders I’ve seen.
