The Bell Helmets team had this to say about this unique and truly innovative product:
“Our engineers not only addressed core needs, but developed a helmet that redefines performance, safety standards and offers truly game-changing innovations” said Chris Sackett, Bell Helmets Vice President. “We’re offering six EPS liners along with five shell sizes for a more proportional fit and improved performance. Further, there will be three helmets within the Star Series – Pro Star, Race Star, Star – to match your riding style.”
Countless hours of testing went into the development of the helmet from state-of-the-art wind tunnels for optimized aerodynamics to road testing. Bell tapped into several of its top road ambassadors for their input including Cameron Beaubier, Jake Gagne, Josh Herrin, William Dunlop and Gary Johnson.
