Bell Race Star

After a long long wait I finally recieved the New Bell Race Star Helmet.

Wow Bell has really stepped up and produce a great helmet.
Coming from two different Bell RS-1 the new race star is way better and it should be being a step up.
With the new flex tech I feel this should be on every helmet and that was why I bought it in the first place.
My first 150ish mile ride was amazing. It cuts like a knife through the air at any speed and when you are in the triple digts it doesnt feel like the lid is trying to come off like the RS-1 did.
In cross winds it moves around alittle but not much but this should be expected.
The new face opening is wide and I feel like I can see everything around me. Its like being in a fish bowl without the distortion effect.
The coating tech on the outside of the shield and helmet is out of this world. Bugs just repel off leaving no marks or guts at all.... Just kidding.
My only dislike right now is that the sheild is alittle hard to open but after some break time it should smooth out.
The other is it looks to good to be taken out on rides. Belongs in a case... aww thats not me I will be wearing the shit out of it.
Love this helmet. Bravo Bell you guys are amazing.

We should go do aero testing on our helmets somewhere.

Never ride faster than you can stop
