Bell Motorcycle Racing Helmets – Safety In Speed

Bell Helmets has been committed to providing customers with high performance features and comfortable helmets, which are perfect for the world’s best drivers. More than any other helmet, racing champions have trusted and have been wearing Bell helmets in all forms of auto racing. The name Bell helmet has always been synonymous with safety, technology, engineering excellence and legendary names. That legacy continues today with the production of the state-of-the-art Bell motorcycle racing helmets.

The Bell Race star HP1 is the very first motorcycles helmet in the world to correspond to the new FIA 8860 Standard, giving racing drivers a neoteric helmet with the highest of safety benchmarks. This particular Bell motorcycle racing helmet evolved when FIA, in their continuous quest to improve safety in Formula One, motorcycle racing and in auto sport in general, mandated to develop a new standard for "Advanced helmets for Automotive Sport" that would by far exceed the most rigorous helmet standards in existence.

The BELL Race star HP1 helmet features a full carbon fiber shell combined with an exclusive expanded polystyrene energy absorbing liner and a totally integrated double screen anti-fog visor, which is flush with the shell surface. This integrated visor improves safety standards by eliminating most of the external projections of the shell surface in the visor area and also improves and smoothens the aerodynamic flow of the Bell motorcycle racing helmets. Depending on the fit pad size and the mounted accessories, this racing helmet weighs only 1245 grams (+/- 5%), making it the lightest and the safest helmet actually available in the world for automobile racing.

Bell, the undisputed world leader in the production of automobile racing helmets, has pioneered an outstanding number of helmet innovations, such as the first full face helmet, the first adjustable ventilation systems, the first aerodynamic helmets and the first fog free shields. The BELL Race star HP1 adds a feather to their cap.
