Bell Star Carbon Helmet
The Bell Star Carbon is the grand-mammy of the Bell line. It’s built for speed, ultra-lightweight, and looks mighty fine, especially from behind when you’re on the track. It’s shaped to cut through air and it shows.
The rear spoiler and aerodynamic design minimizes buffeting and lift at high speeds. The profile combined with the incredibly light weight make the Star slick in a tuck position and fatigue-busting for extended periods at high speeds. The shell combines Bell’s Kevlar, carbon fiber, and fiberglass TriMatrix composite blend with a fully carbon fiber outer layer to achieve the lightest weight with the best impact absorption possible. The helmet weighs in at just around three pounds, which is quite a bit lighter than similarly priced race helmets from other manufacturers. To top it off, the venting flows a ton of air, with two main vents on the top of the head, one on the forehead, and one at the chin.
The visor system on the Star is easy to use, sturdy, and effective. Bell’s SolFX photochromic lenses are available for the Star as well, an awesome optical gadget that automatically adjusts to changing light situations. We have not yet found another manufacturer with established technology like this. The cheek pads and liner are comfortable and plush, and are made with a naturally anti-microbial wicking material.
- Sizing Note: All 2013 and 2014 Stars have a redesigned internal shape that will be comfortable for more riders. So if you’ve tried on a Star before and found it didn’t fit your head shape well, try again with the new model’s more “neutral” fit.
