Bell Star Street Helmet New Version Launched
“We think very highly of Snell and the new M2010 standard,” said Bell Product Manager Chris Sackett. “The approach they took looked objectively at standards throughout the world and combined what they found with the most current impact data available. In some ways we were on a parallel path with our own product evolution.”
In addition to the Star’s technical upgrades, Bell has also added some graphic choices to the helmet with the 2010 Artist Series.
“The great thing about having our R&D facility here in Santa Cruz is we can react quickly and immediately channel rider input into the development cycle,” said Sackett. “Whether it’s a racer like Josh Herrin telling us he’d like the padding a certain way or one of our daily commuters suggesting that there must be something better than a snap to keep his strap from blowing in the wind, we can solve issues and affect change in short order.”
The Bell Star helmet comes in sizes XS to XXL and is available in Black, Matte Black, Metallic Silver, Rally, (MSRP - $549.95) and Graphics ($599.99).
