Bell RS-1 Stellar Helmet

The Bell RS-1 Helmets bridge the gap between the value-minded Vortex and the top-of-the-line Bell Star with amazing mid-line pricing, great graphics and high-end performance.  The Bell RS-1 Stellar Helmet has an amazing star theme that plays out in bold swatches of color, eye-catching pinstripes and reflective whites. The major design element is a large star centered over the eye port where you can feel the force of the riders speed blowing the points of the star back over the helmet. The technical aspects of this helmet also deliver. The RS-1 brings with it Bell’s vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system, a super stable aerodynamic profile, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swaps. All told, it’s one great helmet at a modest price.

Stellar Deal This helmet is fantastic and for the sale price it cannot be beat. I've only got one ride in so far with it but I love it already. It's lighter than my Scorpion helmet and makes for a more quiet ride. At high speeds my scorpion pushes in on my face and this Bell helmet doesn't budge. The interior is plush and super comfortable. I really like the shape and looks of the Bell graphics too. December 23, 2013
Primary Helmet of Choice I own several helmets. I'm a bit of a gearhead. I've own(ed) a Shoei, Scorpion, Nolan, HJC, AFX, and Bell. My Shoei Qwest was my primary helmet for my daily commute but has now since been replaced with the RS-1. The RS-1 fits my head perfectly. There's a bit of a break-in period initially but once the inner pads contour to your cheekbones and head, you're almost forgetting that you have a helmet on. I've read other reviews on the plushness factor of the inner material and have to reiterate how soft the inner lining is. Basically, like another reviewer had stated, "it's like having the softness of puppies all over your head". That feature alone puts the RS-1 well ahead of the competition. The venting and airflow exceeded my expectations and compared to my other helmets the RS-1 is one of the quietest. The RS-1 is considerably lighter than my Shoei Qwest and also takes Bell's SOLFX transition shield. The faceshield is very simple to take off and put on but with the transition shield there is no reason to do so other than to clean the shield. I love this helmet and have yet to find any glaring flaws or negatives. This helmet is ranked #1 among my quiver of helmets. Aaaaaand it's reasonably priced. Look out for close out deals on the RS-1's with graphics! September 4, 2013
Love it Bought it to replace my aging gmax helmet. Gmax large was a good fit with a slight hotshot on the forehead. So I ordered a large. .. I take it out of the box. Doest smell overwhelmingly chemical, that's good. I put it on... Hmm, a little tight, but reviews did say it was more snug and would break in a little. Ok I get on the bike and start rolling. All is okay. Vision is clear and wide. It doesn't let as much air through as my old gmax did, but that's not a deal breaker. I get on the highway... Sounds like I'm doing 50, I look down... Wholy cr@p I'm doing 70... This thing is QUIET!!!! Turn my head around doing 70, no shaking, no buffering, still quiet and my head isn't getting whipped around... That's awesome! So I hit the gas... 70...80...90... Little buffeting from the wind screen deflection... I get into a full crouch it goes away... 100...120... That thing is rock stable on my head... I Love it! So yeah, you got a sports bike, you like to do track days or ride fast in the open... I would totally recommend the rs1 helmet. June 26, 2013
Great quality, light with excellent vision I currently have 8 helmets of various quality. 99 dollars to 650 and it seems I always want to try something else to see if I can get the perfect fit. I finally have found it! This helmet is very light and the noise levels are not bad at all while still flowing a good amount of air. Turning your head back and forth at speed to check traffic does not cause any buffeting or heavy push on your head. I wear a large in most helmets and I wear a large in this as well. My SHOEI Quest has more space between by mouth and the front of the helmet which is great for communication devices but there is still enough room to fit a boom mic inside this helmet as well. I have a round oval shape so I do need some space in the front in order to not kiss the front of the helmet at speed. The replacement of the shield is quick and easy but I bought the transition lens so no real need to swap anything out. I recommend this shield with this helmet but if you do not get this shield then swapping out is pain free. This helmet has to be the best so far in anti fogging capabilities. Today in 50 degree temps I had no issues whatsoever and this is prime temperatures to really deal with this issue. Whether looking around or in the tuck this helmet barely feels like it's there and flows a lot of air. I really cannot say enough good things about this guy. April 3, 2013
Lightweight great field of vision Helmet is comfortable and impressed with the wide field of vision. This is my first full faced helmet and was surprised how light the helemt was. Also included the transition shield with the helmet, I know its expensive but worth the additonal money. I'm riding a Diavel and noticed no buffeting at 70MPH. The helmet fils snuggly around the cheek pads but I expect that to loosen up a bit over time. Overall great product and would highly reccomend this helmet March 14, 2013
great graphics and flow air Premium light weight helmet. Definately has an oval shape to the fitment. Super plush internal liner and no hot spots anywhere with my head shape. Great air flow and no annoying whistling or booming with all the vents open. Very wide field of vision and even more so in the vertical plane. Awesome graphics scheme (black and silver) without any imperfections. Search on youtube for my brief video of the graphics. Can't wait to get the silver iridium shield to fill in the star.

pretty good helmet This is my first helmet. Got the small ,very comfortable almost like it not there at all. Nice graphics,.only complain ,alittle noisy.I wear earplugs .i June 4, 2012
I am really impressed with the RS-1! My reference helmet is an Arai Profile, which I think is an outstanding product, but the Bell RS-1 blows me away. I rode and raced in a Bell Star in the 70’s, but the Bell brand faded to the aisles of Wal-Mart there for a while. The new stuff is top-shelf! Build quality and graphics are superb. On my first ride out of the box, I wore the helmet for two hours with no discomfort, and the fit is deliberately snug. Fit is a little more “round” than the Arai Profile, but my long oval large head fits pretty well in the large. Sizing is a bit tighter in large vs. the large Arai. On the K1300S, with a well-managed but direct blast of air, wind noise was much quieter than the Arai. I think this is due to a neck roll that hugs your head and neck below the helmet shell, and seals the gap below your ears. The neck roll is nice, but it does slightly impede some movement. The shield cleanly covers its pivot mechanism, so there is no pod turbulence, and the various vents don’t emulate deer whistles. These features probably help with noise too. On the R1200GSA, the turbulence off the stock windscreen bothers the RS-1 much less than my Profile. On the K13, head turns at 80 mph were non-events. Very clean and stable through the air. The helmet feels pleasantly light as well. Peripheral vision seems wider. Love the liner; everything can be washed. The lever lock is so simple to use. Open, lock or crack. No need to attempt to slide the little button on the shield around. I am really impressed with the RS-1! April 25, 2012

jimmy v: Love the graphics! But had to return it. I wear a small in every brand I wear; agv go tech, shoei q-west, rf-1100. But this bell rs-1 was to tight and my chin is right below were the chin curtain would be(also had the same problem with agv horizon I think it was) Mar 18, 2014
Ngoc P: good price for the protection Dec 28, 2013
NIcholas T: My current helmet is coming to the end of its life and I wanted a helmet that was more aerodynamic and quieter than my last. Also the price is very reasonable! Oct 14, 2013
Luke C asked: I have a 58cm head, which is right between the large and medium sizes. Which should I get? Nov 29, 2013

Reginald S: Normally, I would say to get the smaller size. It makes the helmet fit snugly, which is safer than having it fit too loosely where it can move about on impact and detract from the
cushioning effect of the padding.
I say “normally” because in some cases I would buy the larger size if the manufacturer sells larger replaceable pads. In that case I would
buy the larger size and replace the pads (an extra cost, but I would still do it). The larger size helmet would ensure comfort all around your head, but the extra large
pads would fill up the space so the helmet wouldn’t move around----the best of both worlds.
The best solution actually is to go to a retail store near you and try on both sizes. If the smaller one fits you comfortably, buy it. If not, try the larger one. If it is too loose,
find out if Bell sells larger replacement pads. If nothing works for you, then your head is just not the right size or shape for Bell.
For me, I have that problem with Shoei helmets. No matter what I try, my head shape doesn’t work on Shoei helmets.

Jason H: I have a similar size head and also came between the two sizes. I went with the large after being told that Bell's run a bit small and couldn't be happier with the fit. Considering Revzilla's return policy you really can't go wrong with picking a size but I definitely know when I buy an item I'd rather get it done the first time. Nov 29, 2013

A shopper asked: Looking at the agv t2 and bell rs1. I wear a shoei rf1100 so that is my head shape. T2 fit comparable? Mar 14, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The AGV T-2 offers a slightly round head shape, whereas the Bell RS-1 has a slightly narrow. Your Shoei RF-1100 will fall right in between with a neutral head shape. Mar 26, 2012
