Bell was founded in 1954 when Roy Richter, a passionate racer, realised the need for a safer environment for drivers to compete in. The name Bell comes from the name of the town in California where the first helmet was conceived. Step forward some 60 years and Bell is now regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of car racing helmets in the world. From the range topping HP Carbon Helmets to the club level Sport helmets, you can rest assured you are buying superior quality helmets when you choose to purchase a Bell Helmet from Merlin Motorsport.
