Information from Bell Helmets:
The Bell Star Helmet has been updated and provides performance ready for the street or race track at an affordable price. This Bell Motorcycle Helmet offers the ultra-light TriMatrix Composite shell and a super stable aerodynamic profile, every form and function of the Star has been designed to make you lighter, faster, and stronger. This full face helmet incorporates a X-Static®XT2 Silver Liner that is flexible and feels like tradtional textile liners while inhibiting the growth of bacteria. The Bell Star Helmet boasts Snell M2015 and DOT certifications and also features street orientation viewport, an included tie style helmet bag, and eyewear compatability with eyewear arm pockets incorproated into the construction of the interior liner.
This Helmet ships with 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 Star Helmet Core Technologies:
|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. This is a $149.95 value if purchased separately.|
|Bell MIPS- Multi-Directional Impact Protection System- Leading slip plane technology inside the helmet designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts.|
|X-Static XT2 Silver Liner - as a leader in antimicrobial fabric technology, X-Static material is clinically-proven to provide bacteria and odor protection throughout the life of the liner. This fabric has been used in previous versions of the Bell Star and Bell RS-1 Helmets with excellent feedback.|
|Tri-Matrix Composite Shell- this proprietary mix of Aramid, carbon fiber, and fiberglass delivers all the strength of carbon fiber in a more budget-protecting package. Other brands use this type of shell in their top of the range products.|
|Eyewear Compatible - Using prescription glasses or a preferred pair of shades is now possible with eyewear arm pockets woven right into the interior liner.|
|Reinvented Field of View - the Bell Star Helmet serves up a new viewport with better vertical field of view, better lateral field of view and enhanced head-check ability. Bell labels the viewport on this version of the Star Helmet as "Street View". Having tested both versions back to back on the street and race track we feel while there is a difference it is not massive so this version of the Star is appropriate on the track as well as the street.|
