I do not have the Ride Smart-1 but i did pick up a bell star from Motorcycles Unlimited... i wore it for the first time last week at MSRH... i love it....
i like my shoe and it fits well, but the bell star fits even better, the shield is easier to operate and i wear glasses when i ride and the fit of the bell star actually helps keep my glasses in place. the noise level is about the same as the shoe, but the air flow seems to be better and that makes the helmet feel a little cooler in the heat.

The Ride Smart-1 has a very comfortable interior and flows a lot of air.

I have the Ride Smart-1. ILUV IT It is my 1st helmet so I don't know w/what to compare it too. Its the next best thing from the very top of the line bell start.W/Snell and Dot approved what else do you want?ohh and the 5yr warranty is nice too.The interior is a very very soft antibacterial material.You have 3 vents to get ventilation to your preference.The removal of the visor is super easy just push a lil tab on both ends.I picked the Gold/white one.You wont regret getting this helmet that I assure you that.
