Bell Helmets EWS80

Bell Helmets EWS80

With multiple massive climbs and grueling descents in one day, as well as a reputation as one of the most challenging courses on the Enduro World Series circuit, the full EWS 100, which takes amateur racers through the full CamelBak Canadian Open Enduro presented by Specialized, isn’t for everyone. With that in mine, the Bell Helmets EWS80 is every rider’s opportunity to experience a more relaxed, fun format without biting into the full meal deal right out of the gate. Formerly known as The Challenger, this event takes racers through four stages of enduro action on some of the best single-track, technical terrain in the world.
