Since its introduction back in 1967, the
Bell Star has long represented the standard
in head protection. Revered as the first
full-face helmet on the market, the Bell Star
inspired an industry to pursue the science
of head protection. That obsession with
helmet innovation continues today.
The new Bell Star is more than an evolution
of its predecessor. It’s a complete rethinking
of what a race helmet should be, driven by
the essential needs of the modern racer.
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
FIELD TESTED AND DEVELOPED
Working with professional riders on the track is the best way to
understand the challenge and generate solutions quickly
Using our state-of-the-art wind tunnel, we fine-tuned the Star’s
aerodynamics with advanced riding simulations
MORE SIZES. MORE PERFORMANCE.
Offering 6 EPS and 5 shell sizes allows a more proportional fit
and improved performance, especially at high speeds
PANOVISION™ VIEWPORT INCREASES FIELD OF VIEW
No matter what or how you ride, one factor remains constant: the need for
maximum visibility. Whether racing or going on a simple ride in the mountains,
the ability to make safe headchecks and see obstacles clearly is critical.
The Panovision viewport in the 2016 Star offers riders additional vertical and
lateral visibility over the previous Star and more traditional viewports. This
allows the rider to see better in a tight or tucked position and make safer
lane changes and head-checks.
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.
