This helmet fits my head perfectly. The ear pockets are a bit tight but I have big ears. Even pressure throughout and true to size. Great visibility with the new Panovision shield and the high cut rear doesn't touch the hump on my race jacket.

Infromation from Bell Helmets:
The Bell Race Star Helmet is essentially the same as the Bell Pro Star Helmet (Retail price $1199 - $1299) with the only signifigant difference being the 3K Carbon Shell in place of the Textreme Carbon Shell. This full face helmet incorporates a Flex Impact Liner, which is a progressive impact liner to manage impacts across the spectrum of crash intensities, and a Virus® CoolJade™ Power Mesh Liner that not only effectively wicks away moisture but also keeps skin surface temperatures 10 degrees F cooler. The Bell Race Star Helmet boasts Snell M2015 and DOT certifications and also features Magnefusion™ Magnetic Cheek Pads, Panovision™ Shield with Class 1 Optics, race view orientation, an included zippered helmet bag, and eyewear compatibility with eyewear arm pockets incorporated into the construction of the interior liner.
Included in the box is a Panovision ProTint Photochromatic (Transitions) shield! Activated by UV light, ProTint™ shields adapt to changing light conditions, providing enhanced vision during any ride. Offering exceptional clarity in low light conditions, ProTint™ shields quickly darken when exposed to bright sunlight. This adaptive technology helps your eyes adjust to the conditions, even when they are changing as quickly as the road ahead. ProTint™ Photochromic lenses provide enhanced contrast, helping your eyes to discern shapes and colors more quickly. The result is enhanced clarity and a reduction in eye strain through varying light conditions.
Bell Race Star Helmet Core Technologies:
|Flex Impact Liner (Patent pending) - A first-of-its kind, three-layer impact liner designed to manage energy from three potential impact scenarios: low, mid and high-speed. 3 unique materials at different densities: 1) Expanded Polyolefin (EPO) - soft and flexible low-density polymer for low-speed impacts 2) Expanded Polypropylene - for mid to high-speed impacts 3) Expanded Polystyrene - for mid to high-speed impacts.|
|The Bell ProTint Shield (yes the one that self tints when exposed to the sun) is included with the purchase of this helmet at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE (Must be added to the cart to qualify). This is a $149.95 value if purchased separately.|
|Virus® CoolJade™ Power Mesh Liner - Designed to withstand the rigors of hard use in extreme conditions, the Virus® liner allows athletes to stay cool, keep comfortable and beat the funk. The most technically advanced liner on the market CoolJade™ fabric has been infused with recycled jade to create a natural cooling effect. It's Ultra-wicking construction combined with CoolJade™ infused yarn decreases skin surface temperatures up to 10 degrees F, keeping the wearer comfortable, dry, and cool.|
|Magnefusion™ Magnetic Cheek Pads - Allows for easy removal of the pads for washing and enables emergency responders to easily remove the cheek pads first before removing the helmet following an impact.|
|3K Carbon Shell - the proven 3K carbon fiber gives the helmet the look, performance, and feel of a true race helmet.|
