Bell Star Carbon Helmet
This helmet has good air flow, great features, graphics on this model (CERWINSKE) are awesome! Got it on sale for 50% off. Very happy with my purchase from REVZILLA, I'm never disappointed, Thanks.

Arai to Bell
Went to the effort of ordering the Bell Star Matte Carbon Helmet from Revzilla, to be sent to New Zealand as the distributor doesn't bring them into the country.
Going from an Arai Quantum to the Bell Star Carbon, I've found the Bell to be outstanding. Admittedly the Arai has aged, but the quality of finish both the lining and carbon shell is excellent.
Its alot quieter wind noise wise than the Arai, with excellent visibility. One reason I was drawn to the Bell Star was the carbon construction, and inherent 'light-weight'. Riding a non-faired bike, a light weight helmet goes along way to reducing wind fatigue. Also very stable when turning your head, cuts through the wind like butter providing little resistance.
All in all, a highly recommended helmet. I went the extra and purchased the transition visor, and want for nothing else.

Best Helmet I Have Worn
This is by far the most comfortable and best quality helmet I have ever owned. It took me a while to pick a helmet and based on reviews I picked the Star Carbon Speed Freak LE. It is great right out of the box you know that you have just moved to the elite level of street helmets. Everything is built with quality and functions smoothly. As always you get what you pay for when you want something that is quality. I would suggest to anyone who rides often like myself. Bell has defiantly gotten my business, and I am looking at getting my wife one too!

Comfortable, stable and looks awesome
My other helmet is the Arai RXQ (large). The Bell Star (medium) is equal to or better in the following ways:
-Looks much better
-Shield is much easier to remove (though I don't see myself removing it nearly as much with the Transition shield)
-Shield mech is much better with indents
-Shield lock is much better with 3 position lever vs Arai's silly black lock thingy
-Flows as well
-Much more stable/better aero
Is inferior in the following ways:
-Much noisier. I now wear earplugs.
-Fit and finish ever so slightly inferior
-Shield fogs quicker. Only noticeable when I'm stopped.

As far as looks go id say its one of the best lookn helmets ive seen.
it flows tons of air. a little noisy but thats the trade-off. I have the transitions shield for it which is another reason I bought the helmet to begin with. the visor works very well imo.
this helmet is pretty light but there are lighter ones out there.
the snaps inside the helmet could be a little stronger but not a big deal.
overall its a top notch helmet!

Nice job Bell - Excellent helmet!!!
I bought the Bell Star Rally Helmet (matte black) and I´m very satisfied with it. Great product with excellent features. I always use medium helmets and this Bell Star fits GREAT in my head, that measures 58cm. Totally recommended!!! The helmet is a little bit noise because of the air flow, but it is not a problem for me. Thanks Revzilla team and all review´s buyers, which helped a lot to choose this helmet.

Looks as good as the photos
Great helmet! Fit is comfortable. I did find the helmet noisy at highway speeds. My ears were ringing after short ride. I would recommend ear plugs with this helmet. Otherwise a great helmet.
