 Bell RS-1 Steam Punk Helmet
Bell RS-1 Steam Punk Helmet
Bell RS-1 Steam Punk Helmet The Bell RS-1 Steam Punk Helmet has some amazing graphics. Gears and pipes in shades of copper and bronze are rendered in amazing detail and visible through windows scattered across the helmet's surface. These graphics don't scream notice me but they certainly invite the eye to linger once revealed. Bridging the gap between the Star and the Vortex, the all-new Bell RS-1 is an amazing blend of mid-line price and high-end performance. Bell engineers have taken many of the best functionalities of the Star and packed them into the RS-1. The Bell RS-1 is the perfect choice for the sport rider who is a tad aggressive and likes days at the track. All told, its one great helmet at a modest price.

I have been shopping for the perfect helmet for a while. I had a very specific list of features that I wanted covered. I am a new rider, and I am very concerned about safety, so I wanted more than just a DOT approved helmet. The Snell M2010 Certification works for me! Also, as a female rider, I didn't want something that was too masculine, but I didn't want butterflies and pink glitter either (there's more pink junk for women riders than any other sport!!! but I digress...) so the Steampunk design is absolutely the coolest thing since sliced bread in my opinion. The helmet fits beautifully, suede-like interior, the pads conformed to my face after one short ride, and it is light enough to not give me a neck ache. The included clear shield is so clear that I had to check to see if I put it down. The airflow is awesome. Even though there are not ports on the sides for eyeglasses, there is still plenty of room for us 4-eyes. :) Oh and the magnetic catch on the strap is sweet. All in all this is the best helmet that I have tried on/used... and I wasn't looking at cheap helmets either, I mean really... how much is your head worth?
