Riding a motorcycle is a risky endeavor. So suffice to say, you shouldn’t skimp on protective gear. However, long rides or days that are stinking hot, you’ll probably want to shed all the clothing you can in the name of comfort. And that’s why it’s so imperative that you have the lightest and most nimble of wears. It also doesn’t hurt if it looks badass.
We’re far from a motorcycle enthusiast, but the Bell Star Carbon Motorcycle helmet seems to meet all of those requirements and then some. The company is no stranger to protecting domes, as they’ve long been the authority in the space when it comes to motorcycles and bicycles. As a result they’ve developed their own Velocity Flow Ventilation System that will keep you from sweating buckets into your, well, bucket. And if you do, the interior is removable and washable, which includes a set of speaker inserts, as well as a magnetic strap keeper, contour cut cheekpads, an anti-fog system, and a quick release shield system. To keep things ultra light without sacrificing rigidity, the Bell Star Carbon Motorcycle helmet’s shell is crafted from Carbon Fiber (1500 grams) and molded for maximum aerodynamics.
The Bell Star Carbon Motorcycle helmet is offered in a variety of sizes and costs $650.
