Bell - 2016 Pro Star Ratchet Helmet
The Bell Pro Star Ratchet Helmet is a beautifully appointed motorcycle helmet, with every single feature you could desire in a motorcycle helmet. When it comes to your life, don’t bet against Bell Helmets. Bell has been in the safety industry for an impressive amount of time, and their experience definitely shines through when it comes to the Bell Pro Star Helmet line. If safety is your priority, this is one motorcycle helmet you simply can’t afford to slip through your fingers. At a premium price point, the Bell Pro Star Ratchet Helmet is designed to fulfill your every need.
Like all Bell Pro Star Helmets, this helmet comes with a flex impact liner that is comprised of three layers. Each layer takes care of a different force and speed in order to lessen the effects of impact on your head. The layers line an already strong light shell made of an ultra-thin carbon fiber weave called Textreme. This carbon fiber is also found on high performance racing boats and f1 cars in order to cut weight by 20%. Although the weight is cut by such a substantial amount, the strength and rigidity is not compromised. At one of the lightest weights in the motorcycle helmet world, it is also one of the strongest. The Bell Pro Star Ratchet Helmet contains an inordinate amount of technologies to raise the safety and performance level to sky-high levels.
The idea of comfort is not lost on Bell in the least. The magnefusion magnetic cheekpads can be removed easily for easy cleaning. Not only can they quickly be removed for cleanliness, they can also be removed at a moment’s notice in the event of an emergency. The Bell Pro Star Ratchet helmet is lightly lined with a Jade Power mesh liner from Virus, that will keep bacteria build-up at a minimum.
As the most trusted manufacturer of motorcycle helmets, Bell does nothing to harm that trust. Bell Pro Star Helmets are at the apogee of motorcycle helmets, and Bell makes no apologies for going all out on the inclusion of features for motorcycle riders. The Bell Pro Star Ratchet Helmet is at a price point where no features are overlooked or excluded. There is no skimping on either safety or performance.

The amount of die-hard Bell Helmet Fans is testament to Bell’s reputation.

TeXtreme® Carbon Fibre
Introducing the Next Generation of Shell Innovation
This ultralight and incredibly strong carbon fibre technology is currently used in today's most advanced Formula 1 cars and racing boats and now, in the 2016 Pro Star. It's 20% lighter than conventional carbon fibre and reduces weight without sacrificing strength or stiffness.
TeXtreme®'s Patented Formula
· Straighter fibers with reduced crimp optimize and strengthen the composite.
· The Spread tow structure makes it possible to achieve thinner laminates.
· Lower crimp reduces the amount of excess plastic, thereby minimizing weight.
Flex Impact Liner
The Progressive Protection of the Flex Impact Liner
The 2016 Pro Star and Race Star feature our revolutionary Flex impact liner. Designed to manage energy from impacts big and small, the Flex liner uses 3 unique materials at different densities to manage low, mid and high energy impacts. Using expanded polyolefin (EPO), a soft and flexible low-density polymer for low-speed impacts, with EPP and EPS layers for mid to high-speed impacts, we have a progressive impact liner that works incredibly well to manage impacts across the spectrum of crash types.

BELL INTRODUCES THE LATEST IN HELMET TECHNOLOGY WITH ITS All-‐NEW PRO STAR
Field Tested and Rider Approved, The Pro Star Incorporates State-‐of-‐the-‐Art Technologies:Flex Impact Liner,TeXtreme® Carbon Shell, VIRUS® CoolJade™Liner,Panovision™ Viewport, Magnefusion Magnetic CheekPads
SCOTTS VALLEY, CA.(October15, 2015)–Bell Helmets, an industry leader in helmet technology and innovation, today introduced the all-new Pro Star, a complete rethinking of what a race helmet should be, driven by the essential needs of the modern racer. Field-tested by Bell’s world-class riders, the sophisticated materials integrated into the Pro Star allow the rider to become one with the helmet. Don’t think, just ride. As the race wears on and fatigue sets in, hot spots and helmet shifting begin to nag and detract a rider’s attention from the track. That’s no longer a problem with Bell’s latest technologies in the Pro Star. A VIRUS® Cool Jade™ power mesh liner reduces skin surface temperatures up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s designed to withstand the rigors of hard use in extreme conditions and allows riders to stay cool and keep comfortable. Plus, a new Panovision™ Viewport offers additional vertical and lateral visibility allowing riders to see better in a tight or tucked position. Along with enhanced comfort, the Pro Star has vastly improved its protection system. The Pro Star pulls from its top‐of‐the‐line dirt counterpart, Moto-9 Flex. Bell’sFlex Impact Liner features exclusive “progressive layering” technology–a system of three unique protective materials–is designed to address low-, mid‐, high-speed and rotational impact velocities to deliver Bell’s most comprehensive level of protection. But the outside matters, too. The carbon shell is reinforced by TeXtreme®, an ultra‐thin carbon fiber weave, 20 percent lighter than conventional carbon fiber, making it one of Bell’s lightest and strongest shells ever. Lastly, the Magnefusion magnetic cheekpad system is designed for easy removal of pads for washing and enables emergency responders to easily pull out the pads before taking the helmet off an injured rider, reducing the chance of neck injury. “Our engineers not only addressed core needs, but developed a helmet that redefines performance, safety standards and offers truly game-changing innovations,” said Chris Sackett, Bell Helmets Vice President. “We’re offering six EPS liners along with five shell sizes for a more proportional fit and improved performance. Further, there will be three helmets within the Star Series –Pro Star, Race Star, Star –to match your riding style.” Countless hours of testing went into the development of the helmet from state-of-the-art wind tunnels for optimized aerodynamics to road testing. Bell tapped into several of its top road ambassadors for their input including Cameron Beaubier, Jake Gagne, Josh Herrin, William Dunlop and Gary Johnson. The Pro Star is the top tier helmet within the 2016 Star Series lineup. Following the Pro Star is the Race Star, made for the racer with a day job. It provides the same level of rider protection in a more affordable package. Rounding out the series, the Star is built from the Pro Star pedigree but delivers performance at a price point the everyday rider can afford.
