"Founded in 1958, S&S Cycle has weathered its fair share of storms. With each challenge, we've become even more grateful to the shops and riders who've continued to support our brand. As our small way of saying thank you, we'd like to offer a Stealth Air Cleaner Kit ($170 value!) for each exhaust purchased between now and May 31st, 2020. That's right, buy nearly any S&S Exhaust and we'll send you a free Stealth air cleaner (good for up to 6Hp!) and some S&S gear as our way of saying thank you for continuing to support us even through difficult times. Offer is good in the US only and requires a receipt to redeem. Take a look at the S&S site for more details and we hope to see you out on the road very soon! https://www.sscycle.com/horsepower-stimulus-package."-S&S Cycle Inc.
Article by Lisa M. Ballard / Photos by Chris McMorrow - I could have easily titled this feature The Apology as I need to apologize to ChopCult member Jesse Pafford publicly. You see, Jesse has patiently waited for his bike to be featured here since the beginning of October. Since then, I dealt with email hacking (a big F U to whoever is to blame) and lost over ten years of contacts and many work-in-process features, one being Jesse's. I have to commend Jesse for not putting me on blast for making him wait. His bike and the touching story deserve to be featured, and I am thrilled to showcase it today. Read more
Bell Helmets, one of the industry's most iconic brands and a leader in innovative head protection, today announced the all-new Eliminator, a homage to its pioneering automotive helmets paired modern industry-leading safety standards. An incredibly bold and assertive street performance helmet, Eliminator was designed to fit the needs of a wide range of riders, from V-twin to modern streetfighter enthusiasts. The helmet also includes Bell's all-new ProVision shield, which features proprietary dual pane anti-fog technology.
Eliminator is available in either composite or carbon fiber shells, and includes a unique ventilation design that adds style and functional advantages over its competition. The ProVision shield is ECE certified, vastly outperforming the standard mist-retardant test, and is designed for all ranges of uses from everyday commuting to extreme competition. The shield is also available in eight different tint options.
"Bell developed the first mass-produced auto racing helmet in 1954 and has a long history in the industry with a performance-first mindset, and we drew on that history to design a racing-inspired helmet for motorcycle riders," said Chris Sackett, Bell Helmets vice president. "We pride ourselves on developing purpose built helmets that not only protect the rider, but offer a number of other key features that riders desire. Eliminator has an aggressive attitude perfect for any rider looking to scorch the dragstrip, carve the canyons or own the streets."
The Eliminator's DNA lends itself to a storied history of burned rubber, dragstrip lights, checkered flags and white knuckles infused into a purpose-built street brawler. The newest addition to Bell's lineup is product of the company's continued innovation and combines light weight, perfect fit with Bell's legendary reputation for protection. The helmet, which comes in a variety of colorway options, will be available in December in select retailers and online at www.bellhelmets.com.
