Bell Race Star RSD Chief 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.

Very Happy
I purchased this helmet in the Roland Sans Chief design. Initially, I was a little disappointed that brushed aluminum / steel looks a little cheaper than the photos. However, the helmet style is still very appealing and It doesn't bother me much. Safety wise, the helmet seems top of the line. Only after purchasing this helmet and comparing to my other cheapo helmets, did I realize how unsafe I was before. The three layers all have a distinct feeling and firmness. I also really enjoy the magnetic chin strap latch and the slick one button shield release system. Works great.

Now for the cons. I wish the visor had a half crack detente, however, can live without it. Venting is ok, the vent control / sliders are small and difficult to operate. The rear exhaust vent is plastic and seems like it will break in a small drop.

Bell Is Doing A Lot Right. But...
What drove me to initially purchase this helmet:
Revzilla Reviews
Features
Styling
Safety Ratings

Pros:
Great features particularly the magnetic cheek pads and chin strap
Great field of view
Very comfortable
Quality paint and styling
Easy to remove all of the washable parts

Cons:
The shell size was enormous compared to my Shoei RF-1000
Heavy
Visor mechanism needs a bunch of work; it's not very smooth and harder to remove and reattach than my (old) Shoei

As far as a riding review, I can't comment as I sent it back based on the size and weight before riding with it.
I've ordered the Shoei RF-1200; it doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but hopefully they stayed true to the size and weight of the RF-1000.

Needed a top of the line racing helmet. Reviewed many models and brands, and I liked the protection features and the design.

Is this helmet quieter than the past bell helmets ?
A C on Feb 16, 2016
Is the medium shell size smaller than the medium RS-1 shell? I love my RS-1 but I look like a bit of a bobble head in it. I'm really hoping that their "5" shell sizes makes a difference.
Jeff B on Feb 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm going to answer my own question after putting both side by side, the answer is no not really. The new Star is every so slightly narrower than the RS-1 shell from the front, but it's taller and longer. To my eye, the shell still looks too physically large considering the head size. If you're not small/skinny like me then it wouldn't matter at all. Otherwise, it is an awesome helmet!!! the features and build quality are great, the liner is super comfortable and the field of vision is second to none.
Why does the video quote 3lbs 4oz for the Bell Star Race, but the product listing shows it as 4.15 pounds?

Bell race star Vs Icon airframe pro, which is better? I live in a warm climate and would like great airflow but also like high level safety
A shopper on Dec 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can not comment on the Icon but I love the Bell Race Star. Lightweight and good air flow.
