Within the motorcycle helmet industry, the Bell Star is just such a name.
With almost fifty years of design, technique, craftsmanship, and continuous refinements to the lineup, Bell has introduced a totally re-imagined series of Bell Star helmets at AIMExpo for 2016. While the information regarding specifics of each helmet is limited, the lineup appears to be split into three segments. With the Pro Star and Race Star sitting more towards the ultra-premium pro racer and super-premium track day aficionado respectively, the Bell Star helmet looks to be more of a street oriented design that appears to be a shade less aggressive in its overall profile. From what could be seen at the unveiling of these helmets, the Bell Star will probably be better acclimated to an upright riding style that is less dependant on precision aerodynamics required while in the extreme tuck of a race helmet. Whatever the case may be, there is no speculation needed to say that the Bell Star helmet will undoubtedly make a name for itself in the long lineage of its predecessors, and as such, is certainly a hot helmet to watch for 2016.
