Just in time for the spring riding season, Bell Helmets is launching three new Helmets in the Star Series of helmets. With helmets for different price levels and specifically geared toward different riding styles, you’re sure to find a Bell Star Series helmet that suits your need and style. Read on to see the differences between the Star, Pro Star and Race Star Series of helmets to see which best meets your riding requirements.

 

 

Bell Star Helmets

2016 Bell Star Helmets Derived from the Pro Star helmet line, the Bell Star helmets have many top of the line features but are at a price point that the everyday rider can afford and appreciate.

Bell Star Series Helmets (From top to bottom, left to right): Solid Matte Black, Pro Solid Matte Black, RSD Blast, Pace Black/White, Pace Black/Red, Solid White, Pace Black/Orange, Spectre Black/Silver and Spectre Black/Yellow

 

Key Features

  • REINVENTED FIELD OF VIEW: The 2016 Star offers an entirely new viewport creating better vertical and lateral field of view and even greater head-check visibility
  • MORE SIZES. MORE PERFORMANCE: Offering 6 EPS and 5 shell sizes allows a more proportional fit and improved performance, especially at high speeds
  • OPTIMIZED AERODYNAMICS: Using our state-of-the-art wind tunnel, we fine-tuned the Star’s aerodynamics with advanced riding simulations
  • TRI-MATRIX COMPOSITE SHELL: A proprietary mix of Aramid, carbon fiber, and fiberglass delivers all the strength of carbon fiber in a more budget-protecting package
  • X-STATIC® XT2 SILVER LINER: A leader in antimicrobial fabric technology, X-Static material is clinically-proven to provide bacteria and odor protection throughout the life of the liner
  • EYEWEAR COMPATIBLE: Using prescription glasses or a preferred pair of shades is now possible with eyewear arm pockets woven right into the interior liner
  • X-STATIC DELIVERS PERFORMANCE WITHOUT FUNK: X-Static fibers are permanently bonded with a layer of 99.9% pure metallic silver. This silver layer is the key to X-Static’s powerful antimicrobial properties, as it creates an ionic shield that permanently inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi.

 

Bell Race Star Helmets

Calling all weekend warriors! The Bell Race Star Helmets were made just for you with the same level of protection and comfort as the Pro Star, but in a more affordable package

Bell Race Star Series Helmets (From top to bottom, left to right): Tracer Matte Black, Triton Blue, Triton Red, RSD Cheif, ACE Cafe Matte Black, Solid Matte Black. (Not pictured: Tracer Black/White, Triton Black/Silver)

 

Key Features

  • FLEX IMPACT LINER: A first-of-its kind, three-layer impact liner designed to manage energy from three potential impact scenarios: low, mid and high-speed.
  • VIRUS® Cool Jade 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.
  • 3K CARBON SHELL: The proven 3K carbon fiber on the 2016 Race Star gives this helmet the look, performance, and feel of a true race helmet.
  • MAGNEFUSION MAGNETIC CHEEKPADS: Allows for easy removal of the pads for washing and enables emergency responders to easily remove the cheekpads first before removing the helmet following an impact.
  • TECHNICAL FABRICS DESIGNED FOR ACTION SPORTS: Pro Star and Race Star feature the most technically advanced liner on the market. CoolJade fabric from Virus has been infused with recycled jade to create a natural cooling effect. The ultra-wicking construction combined with CoolJade infused yarn decreases your skin surface temperature up to 10° F – keeping you comfortable, dry and cool.
  • PROGRESSIVE LAYERING: Pro Star and Race Star feature the Flex impact liner, designed to perform across a range of crash scenarios. It does this by using three different materials at three different densities. As the impact becomes greater, higher density layers are engaged to manage energy.
  • Virus® Cool Jade Power Mesh Liner.

Bell Pro Star Helmets

Deemed one of the most advanced race helmets available, the Bell Pro Star Helmets are filled with cutting edge technology that will help get you to the top of the podium.

Bell Pro Star Series Helmets (Left to Right): Ratchet Black/White, Tracer Black/Silver

Key Features

  • FLEX IMPACT LINER: A first-of-its kind, three-layer impact liner designed to manage energy from three potential impact scenarios: low, mid and high-speed.
  • TeXTREME® CARBON SHELL:Using TeXtreme® ultra-thin carbon fiber weave, we engineered one of our lightest and strongest shells ever.
  • VIRUS® Cool Jade 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.
  • MAGNEFUSION MAGNETIC CHEEKPADS:Allows for easy removal of the pads for washing and enables emergency responders to easily remove the cheekpads first before removing the helmet following an impact.
  • TeXtreme® CARBON FIBER-INTRODUCING THE NEXT GENERATION OF SHELL INNOVATION:This ultralight and incredibly strong carbon fiber technology is currently used in today’s most advanced Formula 1 cars and racing boats and now, in the 2016 Pro Star. It’s 20% lighter than conventional carbon fiber and reduces weight without sacrificing strength or stiffness.
  • TeXtreme®’s Patented Formula
  • Straighter fibers with reduced crimp optimize and strengthen the composite
  • The Spread tow structure makes it possible to achieve thinner laminates
  • Lower crimp reduces the amount of excess plastic, thereby minimizing weight
  • THE PROGRESSIVE PROTECTION OF THE FLEX IMPACT LINER: The 2016 Pro Star and Race Star feature our revolutionary Flex impact liner. Designed to manage energy from impacts big and small, the Flex liner uses 3 unique materials at different densities to manage low, mid and high energy impacts. Using expanded polyolefin (EPO), a soft and flexible low-density polymer for low-speed impacts, with EPP and EPS layers for mid to high-speed impacts, we have a progressive impact liner that works incredibly well to manage impacts across the spectrum of crash types.
