What's this?

Bell Star Helmet

The latest, extremely aggressive generation of a helmet that started a safety revolution in motorsports, the Bell Star Helmet has been reborn to serve the two wheeled masses with even greater performance and protection. Redesigned with a smaller profile for a more refined fit and tuned specifically for the upright riding position, the Bell Star combines the comfort and riding characteristics of a touring helmet with race-bred aerodynamics and performance.

FIT: The Bell Star feels small at first, it 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. 

STREETVIEW: 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. 

EYEWEAR COMPATIBLE: Using prescription glasses or a preferred pair of shades is now possible with eyewear arm pockets woven right into the interior liner

X-STATIC LINER: A leader in antimicrobial fabric technology, X-Static material is clinically-proven to provide bacteria and odor protection throughout the life of the liner. X-Static fibers are permanently bonded with a layer of 99.9% pure metallic silver. This silver layer is the key to X-Static’s powerful antimicrobial properties, as it creates an ionic shield that permanently inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi. Fabrics made with X-Static fibers are flexible, with the natural look and feel of traditional textiles, while offering all the benefits of pure silver.

TRI-MATRIX COMPOSITE SHELL: A proprietary mix of Aramid, carbon fiber, and fiberglass delivers all the strength of carbon fiber in a more budget-protecting package. Woven synthetic fibers have long been proven to be some of the most practical solutions where lightweight strength is required. Bell's Tri-Matrix shell utilizes the combined power and superior characteristics of these race-proven synthetics, offering unmatched strength and durability.

Features:

  • Tri-Matrix Composite Shell
  • X-Static Liner
  • Eyewear compatible
  • Streetview profile
  • 6 EPS and 5 shell sizes
  • Meets or exceeds Snell M2015 and DOT certifications

Note: Rear spoiler on White helmet shows correct width of spoiler.

Wonderful Entry Level + Helmet.
This is the entry level helmet to the new Star line. I will certainly be getting a Race or Pro Star later, but I needed a helmet asap and just had to return another manufactures helmet for some quality control issues. The Fit and Finish of this Bell Star is wonderful. Compared to its big brothers coming out later this year it seems a little basic, but compared against its competition it is a wonderfully put together piece of safety equipment.

Pros:
-Matte Finish is excellent, not a cheap feeling Rubatone finish, has a natural baked on feeling.
-Great easy to disassemble cheek pads and inner liner. (I always take these apart when I receive a helmet, that is how I found flaw in my last helmet)Breeze to take apart and reassemble, handy for washing later during sweaty summer months.
-Vents everywhere, Airflow galore ( a con to this I will explain later)
-Shield change mechanism stupidly easy.
-Easy to strap up and magnet on strap is very nice.
-Comfy and so far very quiet ( I ride a naked bike so wind noise is something I am very familiar with)
-So far no fog on stock shield

Cons:
-No pinlock lens in box or even pinlock ready shield, some do not like it, but it just makes life easy ($80 for one if you want to add it, but only in clear shield format)
-Chin curtain is way to small, would love to have a larger curtain, would keep this thing airtight around neck, but it lets ever so slight an amount of wind in with all vents closed that its a bit annoying. I'm sure Bell will "sell" me a larger one eventually
-No speaker cutouts, Come on bell, We use comms now, please accommodate us, at least in this more basic model.
-No shield detentes, you are either open fully or cracked at city position, of course you can close it but I'm just counting "open positions".

Solid Helmet
I bought this helmet a couple weeks ago and have broken it in over about 150 miles, so take that all into consideration.

First off, my matte black helmet looks super awesome. I'll probably add some subtle black reflective tape to up the visibility, but it's 11/10 in style. It's light on my head and there is plenty of ventilation. I've had it up to 111 mph on an fz07 with no windscreen whatsoever and it was a bit loud, but very stable.

According to Bell's size chart, my head sat squarely in the middle of SM and MD sizes. I opted to go with the SM because I'd rather my helmet be slightly tight in the event of a crash than slightly loose, and I figure I will break it in and stretch it out as time goes on. It certainly feels better than it did when it was brand new, but its still tight and after maybe 15 hours it gets uncomfortable. I have to position my ears after I put it on to get that just right, and I have lingering doubts about a Sena not making it even more tight. If I did it again, I think I'd get the MD. Tough call.

Overall I feel good, and safe, in this helmet. Definitely would recommend.

Great style, price, and features
The new Bell Star had everything I wanted in a new helmet. I ride an FZ 09 and this helmet works very well with the more upright position that my bike puts me in. The noise level is quiet for the most part. I have put a few miles on the interstate with this helmet and it can get a little noisy with all the vents open at 70mph+ but that is to be expected. Airflow is excellent! I live in Georgia and the heat can be pretty intense. But this helmet allows the air to flow and cool my head off very well. The fit was the only real problem I had. It isn't bad or extremely uncomfortable, but the cheek pads fit a little tight. I have owned Bell helmets previously and never had this problem. Overall, I would highly recommend this helmet. It has excellent style and value.

What an upgrade!
I've only owned helmets that have fallen in that 100-200 dollar range and this a serious step up. the two things that have shocked me as have been the noise level and the visor.

Noise level. as it compares to my previous helmets it QUIET! A significant noise level different along with an increased airflow and comfort.

The visor and visor system are amazing. The whole optically correct thing is not just talk its so true. I questioned at times if the visor was down at all it was so clear. There is also a notable quality difference in the material of the visor itself. Cant brag on it enough.

Overall I am very satisfied and look forward to riding in the lid for years. Will update after Install the Sena unite and see how it works with the helmet.

P.S. I measure right at the 24" mark (I know i have a big head) so I ordered the 2XL and it fits awesome. Very comfortable and snug.

LOUD!
Beautiful helmet. Cuts through the wind like a knife even when turning your head. Super snug fit. Make sure you measure your head correctly.
The bad, amazingly loud. The wind noise in the helmet is horrible. My first ride down the interstate this morning was rough. My $100 Bilt is quieter.
Stuck with a $500 helmet. The search continues.

Runs very small and no room for speakers !
Let me first start of by saying, I want to love this helmet!
It looks great and feels great - but unfortunately, after a few days of wearing it the tight break-in feeling hasn't gone away.

I'm a size ~55cm so I ordered a small shell. Wish I'd gone for a medium since the pads have broken in as much as they're going to and the helmet is still quite tight.

Additionally - and super disappointing - is the lack of room for my Sena speakers. I resorted to removing the plastic casing around the speakers making them ~1/4 thinner than before. Even that was to large to successfully fit into the helmet.

Really at an impasse - great helmet, but the lack of speaker compatibility and the fact that the shell runs so small is making me want to toss it out and buy something else.

Excellent Helmet
Like others many others, I was one of those arrogant/ignorant riders that thought any full face helmet and this Bell-Star would be similar, Boy was I wrong.

The fitting is phenomenal, very easy to slide on, and your ears don't get caught in any awkward way- the view is excellent, you almost can't tell you're in a full face helmet and peripheral vision is near perfect. The helmet also breaths very well with all the vents open and the visor in the closed position, at 50 MPH you can feel the airflow through the helmet.

Improving on a good thing
I've been riding with the 2010 Star for years, and it was time for a replacement. This helmet is perfect for my mid-oval shaped noggin. I love the panovision feature, which provides a wider field of view. Noise was never an issue in the old Star, and it's even better in this one. I've never had to use earplugs, even at interstate speeds. Fitment: I measured 59 cm and the helmet is a pleasant, firm snug... no wobbling but not tight enough to start a headache. It seems they shortened chin strap, which means less excess poking me in the neck. Ventilation is still excellent. Matte black finish is spot-on and the helmet looks mean.

Definitely worth the money.

Great helmet - misleading images
I recently purchased this helmet as part of the 2017 holiday sale and still would have been happy with this helmet at full price, let alone what I paid.
Like other reviewers have said, it fits a bit small. I fit right in between small and medium per the sizing chart and the medium fits well, but quite snug in the cheeks and temples. This is not a negative point, as it feels much more secure on my head than my previous helmet and I have no doubt it will break in nicely.
I haven't tried to install a Bluetooth com in this helmet yet, but I can definitely see that finding room for the speakers could be challenging. The helmet fits tight to your ears as it is.
My previous helmet was an HJC RPHA 10 and while that helmet is known for great airflow, it is a far way behind the Bell Star. The Bell flows significantly better when open, and keeps significantly more air out when closed. It's also about half as loud, open or closed. I can't compare to the big names in "quiet" helmets, but I can say its much much quieter than the HJC.

My only complaint is the imaging used in this product listing (either matte black or white) shows the helmet being supplied with a tinted screen. It does, in fact, come with a clear screen. Not a big negative as the clear screen is probably better for most of the riding I do, but the tinted looks sooo much cooler.

I was ready to upgrade to another helmet and wanted something more race driven. RevZilla did a great video product review which helped me make my decision. The video gave great examples of riding conditions using this helmet. This helmet was exactly what I have been looking for.
Justin S on Jul 6, 2017
liked the look of the helmet better than the rest.
Brandin M on Jun 3, 2017
I tried this helmet on at a local shop and the fit was pretty good. Watched a break down of the video on Revzilla and found it very informative. I was wavering from this helmet and the Shoei rf1200. I only ride on occasion and since I don't commute I like the aggressive look of this one.

Jason C on Mar 31, 2017
Love this Helmet. Have about 5000 miles in it now and it has been awesome. It vents really well, but in the winter it leave a little to be desired when the vents are closed in terms of warmth. The Shield is awesome. Fogs up from time to time but that is to be expected. Over all I would give it a 4.8 star rating. Great helmet.

Virgil J on Dec 5, 2016
A trusted name in head protection. Went into the boutique and checked the fit. It was spot on to the chart.

After riding with the helmet it is better than anticipated. Lots of air flow, good vision, no buffeting at speed, weather in tuck or upright.
Wayne R on Sep 10, 2016

The Bell Star appeared to be the best cost to feature helmet for an upright riding position. And the transitions shield is a great perk on this helmet.
Stephen S on Jun 12, 2016
This was one of the few helmets when going to stores actually fit my head shape well. Most the places in my area had helmets with manufacturer dates in 2013 so I went online to purchase to get one that would give me more time before it expired.
