We are looking for some opinions and experiences with the new Bell Star helmets

While searching for a new helmet line to carry, we came across the new Bell Stars.
A Bell representative brought over some of the new Bell Star helmets for us to check out.
The style, quality, fit and finish look pretty good. The ventilation looks good and the shape is supposed to be very stable at speed. The product support seems top notch.

We are now thinking of ordering a batch for stock to try out.




From some of the reviews that I have read, it seems there are a lot of people that like them. They say the visor is the easy to replace. The helmet is stable at high speeds. It comes with a very nice bag too.


Does anyone have any long term experience with the new Bell Star helmets?

Bell helmets

I do not have any experience with Bell helmets. They've been pretty much out of the mainstream helmet market since the late 70's.

But I gotta say, that helmet looks REALLY sweet! Looks like the company is staging a comeback. Also, that helmet bag is, by far, the nicest helmet bag I've ever seen to be included with the purchase. I wish Bell the best for their future success.

Here is a review you might be interested in:

What price range are they shooting for and who are the main competitors in this level? I hadn't heard anything about it but I agree with zx on the look and bag.

Easton owns the company now but I heard they have a new design team and players from the 70's involved.

Minimum advertised price and MSRP is in the $500 range. (but we will do much better ...:)

The employees here are picking up a few of them for them selves.
We are considering a group buy on these if there is interest.

From what I've read I really like it. I need to replace mine this year and if I can find one in a shop around here I'd really consider it for my next helmet.

So its competitors will be the Shoei X-11, Shark RSR2, and Arai RX7; top-of-the-lines.

Bell is a great brand that not many stores carry. You can use that as a competitive advantage. The Bell Star is one of their greater models that I've tried.

Here's what our readers have to say about it:

The truth is that each helmet has has positives and negatives, and no matter which one you ultimately decide upon purchasing, just making sure that you strap on a helmet every time you're riding your scooter, motorcycle or ATV is the single best decision you can make.
