Bell Helmets recently unveiled its 2018 street full face helmet lineup, highlighted by the new MIPS-equipped Star and RS-2. The category continues to range from its Pro Star Flex to its entry-level Qualifier with tasteful colorway upgrades throughout.

First integrated into Bell Powersports in 2016, MIPS is now standard in the Bell Star. MIPS stands for Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, which is a technology inside the helmet designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain types of impacts. The helmet itself carries the same racing-inspired pedigree of the Pro Star and Race Star. It also features Bell’s exclusive Panovision viewport for a greater field of view.

“It’s not everyday that you can take a best-in-class, performance-driven helmet and make it even better, and we’ve managed to do just that with the addition of MIPS to the Star platform,” said Chris Sackett, Bell Helmets Vice President. “Similarly, the RS-1 had been arguably the highest value proposition on the market at its price point, and we’ve raised the bar for that helmet with RS-2, and done so at a price point that’s $100 lower than its predecessor.”

The updated RS-2 features a lightweight fiberglass DOT/ECE design with a smooth direct drive internal sun shield. It features an optimized aerodynamic design to eliminate noise from air turbulence. The helmet comes with an X-Static comfort liner, ventilation, and is also communication and eyewear compatible.

The 2018 street full face category is bookended by the Pro Star Flex and entry-level Qualifier. This year, the Qualifier line has expanded to include four offerings: Qualifer DLX MIPS Equipped, Qualifer DLX, Qualifer DLX Blackout and Qualifier. In addition to the new helmets, the entire 2018 street full face line will also feature new graphic and colorway options.
