    It's not available yet. Schit, I don't even have one.

    Size and head form should be exactly the same as the Bell Super.

    Trailhead is san jose.

    Any shop in the southbay / peninsula will be good.

    Bell has it available for ordering. I m hesitant without seeing and trying first. Learn this the hard way from chainlove

    Fat head folks need light colored helmets to prevent brain swelling.

    The A1 fits certain people, many, strangely.

    I generally pick the lighter one but it doesn't look the color would hold up against the gravy coming off my sweaty head. My guess is it would end up being orangish/brown like my last white helmet.

    I just got my Medium Super 2R. On the Bell Super, I'm a Medium and it fits very well.

    On this one... not even close, too small. It is just hitting the size of my head because there's plastic/rubber reinforcement inside the shell.

    So I'll have to size up and see.

    Damn, wish I saw your post earlier Francois. I went to REI to try a small Bell Super. Barely fit but had a headache. Since REI didn't have any other sizes, I took the liberty on ordering a medium with REI using their 20% off thanks giving coupon.

    Have yet to heard where my order is since they said Bell wont be ready to ship to REI until today. Wonder what is taking Bell so long

    I found that Tread bikes off of winchester has the super 2's in stock, just not the super 2r's. They all say these will be available with MIPS in mid December. A Medium fit me pretty darn well. Waiting on the MIPS to come out though since its only 20 bucks more.

    I walked out of Art's Cyclery SLO last Thursday with the first one sold from their walk-in retail. It's a medium and fit just like the Medium Super I've been wearing for a year and half, now. Difference is, it has 2 rubberized pads in the liner that create a "hot spot" and I really felt it when I wore the helmet on Sunday on a run over in Kernville. Today, since I had some time, I investigated these new pads closely as I was seriously contemplating a return. I assumed the pads were possibly covering some hardware that had to do with the new chin bar system but on further investigation and comparing my old Super side by side, I peeled the pads up to see what's underneath. Nothing but EPS liner just like the older Super. I removed both and wore the helmet. Beautiful fit identical to the original Super! I'm calling Bell in the morning to discuss with them whether these new pads are necessary as the remaining portion of the X-static liner is identical to the older Super. I'll post up my findings asap!

    Aside from that fit issue, the helmet was awesome on the trail.

    Oh....and no MIPS till January is what I've been finding.

    My post from a few days ago....
