We don't always make the best decisions, line-wise; however, we do often make one eminently commendable decision: taking the Bell Super DH Mips Limited Edition Helmet with us on our own runs. It's important to celebrate good decisions -- if for no other reason than to reinforce them -- that's why we partnered with Bell to produce this special edition of the Super DH Mips.

Whether the chinstrap is on or not, Bell designed this helmet to keep you cool on the hottest rides. The helmet has 19 vents with an additional four chin-bar vents and two brow ports. The overbrow ventilation draws cool air into the intake ports and rushes it over the top of the head. Hot air...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
