Bell Star Helmet

I know what you're gonna say .. Bell sucks ... but they have come a long way from the head bucket they used to call a helmet. Comparing it to the Shoei RF1000 that I've been wearing I thought it was very similar in quality. The cheek pads are actually a lot nicer, less wind noise and a bad design. It's very easy to pop the shield off just like the Shoei. I would totally recommend this helmet for the streets but NOT for track use. After only 4 or 5 trackdays I have to get another. You can't see out of the top of the helmet when you're in a turn. It's too low. Something I never thought of when trying on a helmet.

Wanted to reiterate that it was an awesome helmet for street use. Just the track thing doesn't work out. I was bumped to get rid of it. Beautiful helmet

It's the same with my Icon airframe.I thought not being able to see out from the top of the helmet was just me.Now I know what to look for in a helmet.
Thanks for the write up
