The Star helmets from Bell in the 1960’s and 1970’s have remained iconic and popular since then and took inspiration from the company’s Bullitt helmet. The major differences between this Carbon model and the original are slight but noticeable.
It has been given an elegant and subtle matte carbon-fiber finish, which is more than just aesthetically pleasing. The carbon actually helps to make the helmet more lightweight. Apart from these upgrades, you get the great features of the original. This includes, of course, the washable, removable lining in leather and padding for additional comfort. It also has a metal mesh intake and front chin, along with vents for breathability.
The company has also considered your MP3 player needs, with the integrated speaker pockets still intact, padded chin strap using D-ring closure and contoured cheek pads. It is finished off with a transparent shield, flat silver iridium shield, brown leather lab and comes with certification both by ECE and DOT.
So, if you are looking for a stylish and comfortable helmet for those day to day travels between home and work, as well as those weekend jaunts to the countryside or wherever else you like to tear up the dirt, then this is a great purchase.
