    If you do track days or regularly go over 100 MPH on the street the bell star is hard to beat.

    Wow this is a beauty of a helmet I was almost sold on it until I went and checked out the colors. Why can’t they make just one that is more femalish? They could have added some pinks, purples, light blues something to make one of them more femine. I’m also with Rodent where is it manufactured at?

    If you are a sexy lady, black is your color, not pink

    Not much for full face helmets & the cost is prohibitive
    But it is a beauty !!!!!

    If its a helmet I can wear for an 800 mile long day without giving me a headache then the cost is practically irrelevant. I find it funny when guys drop 35 grand on a CVO but thinks 350.00 is an expensive helmet. A little bit less wind noise and a few ounces lighter are well worth a couple hundred dollars for a long distance lid. Just from looking at the pictures though the vents and spoiler on this helmet appear to be for a head forwar/down position like a sport or sport tour bike. I’d like to check one out in person to be sure but I think one designed for an upright cruiser or tour bike would be a better market.

    I just did a huge motorcycle review. And truthfully, I didn’t review any helmet under $400. It is your HEAD! Looking cool is awesome too, but usually more expensive helmets are expensive for a reason. They give you better protection!

    This one looks especially nice 🙂

    how much is your head worth?

    thats a great helmet. ive got one and although i usually wear it on my sport bike, i have ridden with it on my harley and it works just as well there. also, i paid no where near 650 for mine, so if youre interested, shop around and deals are out there.

    It’s their premium line that competes with Shoei and Arai whose helmets go for over $800. And no, they are not USA-made. You won’t find many that are.

    I’d buy it if i had the scratch

    I know the gentleman who designed this and he is responsible for many of the helmets you see in the market today. I have never met a more conscientious person as it comes to rider safety. Easton owns bell they design and develop the core of their product right here in California. The interiors are excellent and the innovations such as magnetically mounted cheek pads are a plus as they can be easily removed in case of an accident so your head can be easily extracted. Unfortunately their are essentially no helmets of note being produced in the USA.

    For a primer on helmet design and efficacy visit Arai or Shoei’s website and learn why a proper fitting helmet constructed of materials (fiberglass is still considered the best) that actually flex and give way (carbon fiber is rock solid) are the best protection. It’s all about absorbing G-shock spikes and spreading that load over the thicker parts of the skull. There is an astounding amount of engineering that goes into these products which is why they are so expensive.

    Bell had an ad back in the 60s/70’s, “If you have a $10 head, wear a $10 helmet”

    I got my first full-coverage helmet in 1972, a bright orange Bell Star. I haven’t worn anything but full coverage since. Mostly Arai, but also Simpsons [Darth Vader], shoei and some from Europe life the ROOF. I simply can’t imagine not wearing the highest quality helmet and not wearing full face. And while we are on that subject, I can not believe most people only have one helmet and wear it day after day. That’s like wearing the same pair of shoes or the same pants every day. Just a bit nasty.
