Bell Race Star Ace Cafe Speed Check Helmet
The Bell Race Star Helmet has been designed for the sport rider and track day enthusiast that demands unparalleled performance. Constructed using the latest in carbon fiber technology and developed through extensive wind tunnel and track testing, the Race Star's design features a superlight 3K Carbon Shell, Raceview ergonomics for unmatched visibility and the three layer Flex Impact Liner to manage slow, mid and high energy impacts. The Race Star continues the racing heritage of the Bell Star line, pushing the limits of helmet technology to all new heights.
FIT: The Bell Race Star has a narrow neck roll opening and snug cheekpads to occlude noise and to mitigate movement at high speeds. These padded elements will conform to your unique features by a break in margin up to 20% over time as the foam compresses.
FLEX IMPACT LINER: Pro Star and Race Star helmets feature the Flex impact liner, a first-of-its kind, three-layer impact liner designed to manage energy from three potential impact scenarios: low, mid and high-speed. It does this by using three different materials at three different densities. As the impact becomes greater, higher density layers are engaged to manage energy.
RACEVIEW: The Star features two unique profile shapes for two distinctly different types of riding. The Raceview profile used on the Pro Star and Race Star uses an orientation specifically optimized for a tucked, more compact position. Conversely, the Streetview profile used for the Star is designed for a more upright, sport or touring position.
PANOVISION VIEWPORT: No matter what or how you ride, one factor remains constant: the need for maximum visibility. Whether racing or going on a simple ride in the mountains, the ability to make safe headchecks and see obstacles clearly is critical.The Panovision viewport in the Star offers riders additional vertical and lateral visibility over the previous Star and more traditional viewports. This allows the rider to see better in a tight or tucked position and make saferlane changes and head-checks.
VIRUS Cool Jade Power Mesh Liner: The Pro Star and Race Star feature the most technically advanced liner on the market. Designed to withstand the rigors of hard use in extreme conditions, the Virus liner allows athletes to stay cool, keep comfortable and beat the funk. CoolJade fabric from Virus has been infused with recycled jade to create a natural cooling effect. The ultra-wicking construction combined with CoolJade infused yarn decreases your skin surface temperature up to 10° F - keeping you comfortable, dry and cool.
3K CARBON SHELL: The proven 3K carbon fiber on the Race Star gives this helmet the look, performance, and feel of a true race helmet.
MAGNEFUSION MAGNETIC CHEEKPADS: Allows for easy removal of the pads for washing and enables emergency responders to easily remove the cheekpads first before removing the helmet following an impact.

After my Arai started getting worn and and loose on my head, I decided it was time for an upgrade.
I loved the style and safety features on the new Bell's, so I made the pricey decision to pull the trigger.
At first the helmet was snug...waaaaay more tighter than my oversized Arai, but after a month it seemed to conform to my head....and seems to further get more comfortable as time progresses.
Loving the vision and weight aspect of the helmet and the magnetic strap is a nice feature.
Its a little noisy at times..but bolting anything to our heads and doing 80 mph with our melons headfirst in the breeze is prone to get a tad bit of wind noise.
My major problem with the helmet was with the shield and lack of opening detents.
Its either all the up....or all the way down.
I get its a "Race Star" but...
Not very good for us that ride on the street and get caught in the rain and have to deal with foggy shields or ride in the summer heat and need to add a little bit more air flow inside.
I put the helmet on and raised the shield where my desired opening would be and removed it..keeping the location in place and noting where the shield nubs that slip into the factory detents were located on the hinge.
I removed both hinges....bolted them together with some machine screws and nuts , so my work would be symmetrical and marked my desired location.
Using a round file...
I added two additional notches the same size and depth of the original detents, one a quarter of the way up the hinge and another just under the halfwaypoint, giving each a little bit of a flair to help with the transition in and out of the newly added detents.
Rescrewed the hinges back on the helmet and installed the shield....and WALA...My shield now stays open in two additional positions. Both still offering the safety of coverage to my eyes but adding much needed airflow and ventilation that I desired.
Now the helmet is PERFECT and all and all the job took a half hour at best....
Now the wait for Bell to release an auto darkening transition shield for it.....
I pre-ordered the Bell and eagerly waited for months for it to arrive. When it came, I was a bit sad because the shipping box was totally crushed on one side, also crushing the OEM helmet box. The helmet itself looked spotless, so I tried it on. (Very nice, zippering helmet bag included btw)
Having high cheekbones, putting on the helmet was actually rather painful because the plastic attachments of the chin curtain to the shell scraped me when I pulled it on. Once on, the helmet fit nice and evenly snug around my head and cheeks. No hot spots after 30 min of wear around the house. Virus/jade liner has a very airy, lightweight feel to it and so does the foam within the liner, good support but not dense/hot feeling. I can imagine good airflow
The visor has great field of view sitting either upright on my SV650 track bike or in race tuck. Peripheral view is also great, I can't see the side borders of the eye port at all. The AGV has a narrower FoV top to bottom but similar side to side and in race tuck position. The Bell visor does NOT lock closed, instead has a firm click down, but I wanted something that may not pop open as easily in a crash....I can pretty easily knock the visor open if I bump the big closure tab. The AGV has a center locking mechanism, button to unlock, and no tabs to snag the ground.
The heavier weight of the helmet was very noticeable to me. Revzilla lists 0.5 lbs difference with the Bell being the heavier lid. On my head, the Bell has much more inertia during neck movements and felt like the CoG was up high on top of my head vs the AGV I felt had the CoG more between my ears.
Graphics-wise, I'm not crazy about either Bell or AGV's offerings. I though the Speed Check was the coolest of the current line but overall is very subtle/dull in person. It doesn't look much different than an all-black, matte carbon helmet despite the sections of clear coat.
In the end, I decided to go with the AGV over the Bell for comfort reasons and the fact that the price was similar (in fact, getting a closeout Corsa made it cheaper than the Bell). I think Bell made a good quality product but it didn't work so well for me
Recommend to take a perfect fit size - this helmet is not for slow speed, so u need a tight fit ( it will take a good 3-4 days for the helmet to shape your head ).
Yes, it fits snug. that's how it's supposed to fit. The sizing is correct.
No, the visor is not either all open or totally closed. Just dont snap it closed and it will flow a little air to prevent fogging.
If you want speakers, SENA, Scala Rider dont buy the RACE star. It says RACE for a reason; that's a clue. Get the Bell Star.
It's no more noisy than top tier Shoei or Arai. That's what ear plugs were invented for.
This is my first Bell helmet. Great job, Bell., You raised the bar.
Btw it has one of the best Sharp ratings out there, it's still dot and Snell certified but tnt Sharp rating is what sold me on it.

The field of vision is excellent.
The shield is top notch in quality and anti-fog. The quick release makes it a breeze to swap shields. Just make sure you feel and hear the engagement. It is definitely meant to be used with shield down and locked. If not, there's a terribly loud whistle. The whistle starts at about 10 mph and just gets louder as you ride. With the shield locked, it is completely silent.
The ventilation is very nice. You can definitely feel the air flow.
The one down side FOR ME was the fit. I ordered a LG and it put a lot of pressure on my temple. If you have a long oval to narrow head, this helmet is great.
