Open face helmets require extra protection for the eyes and these pieces of eyewear do the job perfectly.
Riding around in an open face helmet is fun. You can feel the wind in your face, they look good and it is easier than putting on a full-face helmet. However, one thing to keep in mind with open-face helmets is that you don’t have any protection for your eyes, that will be left watering if an open-face helmet is what you use all the time. Instead, pair it with the right riding eyewear, that will not only enhance the style quotient of your riding ensemble, but also make sure you have clear vision throughout.

While retaining the original design, Bell has incorporated modern protection featured in the helmet’s construction.
If you are looking to pair this helmet with a piece of eyewear, we recommend the Bertoni Vintage Custom Mask Goggles. They are constructed out of steel and then enveloped in leather.
