Bell is one of the leading manufacturers of motorcycle helmet. Therefore, when shopping for new riding gear, I was sure I could find products worth my money. I haven’t bought a motorcycle helmet in a while, so I was willing to splurge on this particular purchase. The Bell Pro Star in matte black came up in my search, and I decided to go for it. My choice has not disappointed yet. I have raced for a couple of years, so I know what to look for in a decent helmet. First of all, the helmet has a stunning finish. It uses the most advanced carbon weave, TeXtreme, which is ultra-thin, giving the helmet an elegant feel. The fact that it’s in matte black is a huge plus for me. Besides appearance, it is incredibly lightweight, which is hard to achieve with a helmet of this calibre. I can ride for two hours with this helmet without feeling like my head will fall off from exhaustion.
With the technology that Bell used for this product, the price tag makes sense. The Pro Star comes with the Flex Impact Liner, a three-layer lining to reduce the impact to the head during accidents. It has padded cheek pads that felt a bit snug the first few times, but the helmet adjusts to your shape and fits like a glove.
The Panovison Viewport ensures that a rider has maximum visibility on the road. It includes a button to separate the visor and helmet. If riding at full speed and need to make a head check, I appreciate the no-fuss model of this feature.
This Bell motorcycle helmet makes every minute on the road an adventure.
