The Race Star is a full face helmet from Bell. Compared to other types of helmets, full face helmets provide the best overall protection as they cover your entire head and face. When choosing a new helmet and when safety is your top priority, a full-face helmet is always the right choice. Constructed from Carbon, this Race Star DLX Flex offers the advantage of a very lightweight construction and superior distribution of energy upon impact. The proven 3K carbon fiber gives this helmet the look, performance and feel of a true race helmet. In addition, this helmet is provided with Flex Energy Management. A first-of-its kind, three layer impact liner designed to manage energy from three potential impact scenarios: low, mid and high speed.
The chinstrap closure is an important part of the helmet's effectiveness in the event of a fall, and it's also the part you interact with the most when putting on and taking off the helmet. The Race Star DLX Flex has a Double-D buckle. This is the oldest type of buckle and, compared to the other types of chinstrap closures, has the simplest design. Yet today it is considered one of the safest closures.
All helmets in our collection are certified and legal for European roads. This helmet is ECE 22.06 approved. 22.06 is the newest ECE certification and helmets with this label are safer than its 22.05 predecessors, because they need to meet stricter safety standards. Besides the helmet, the accessories, such as visors, are also included in the tests. Note: The pictures show the helmet with a sticker on the back with DOT approval. However, the helmet we sell is only ECE approved.
This helmet comes with a ProTint Photochromic Shield. Activated by UV light, ProTint shields adapt to changing light conditions, providing enhanced vision during any ride. Offering exceptional clarity in low light conditions, ProTint shields quickly darken when exposed to bright sunlight. This adaptive technology helps your eyes adjust to the conditions, even when they are changing as quickly as the road ahead. Enhance your ride.
The interior of this helmet is provided with an Ionic+ Antimicrobial Comfort Padding. The quick-drying interior padding helps manage sweat while using silver for odor control. In addition, the helmet is fitted with a removable interior, which makes it possible to wash the interior and keep it fresh.
This helmet has a number of nice features that immediately catch the eye when you see this helmet for the first time. First of all, of course, the matte black carbon surface in combination with the Fasthouse logo, which shows the collaboration between the brands. The carbon parts of the helmet are interrupted by stylish black and white Street Punk inspired stripes on the right side of the helmet, which make this helmet truly unique. Besides the eye-catching design, this helmet is equipped with an aerodynamic spoiler at the back to keep the head stable when riding at higher speeds and to make you look cool.
Please note: Helmets are sold with a transparent visor, unless mentioned otherwise.

The circumference of your head provides a good guideline for the size you need for a helmet. Use a tape measure to measure the widest circumference of your head. For most people, this point is about an inch above your eyebrows, along the junction of your ear and over the lump on the back of your head. In the size chart you will find which size fits the circumference of your head in cm.
All heads are different and that is why manufacturers make different helmet shapes, this can be roughly categorized into three shapes: round, oval and round-oval.
Most motorcycle helmet manufacturers provide a predominantly round-oval fit so that they can appeal to the widest possible audience. Keep in mind that the fit of a helmet is very complex and difficult to describe exactly. Small differences may therefore also be possible within these three categories!
In general, the helmet sizes and the corresponding number of cm do overlap. If your previous old AGV was size L, chances are you also need an L for your new Nolan. But as mentioned before, there can be small differences in fit per brand and even series. That is why it can happen that the cool new helmet you've been eyeing, even when you have measured yourself well, simply wont fit well.
You can check the size and fit in the following ways:
A good "tight" fit is what you are looking for, after all, you don't want your helmet to suddenly start shifting while riding. If you think the helmet is too small, keep in mind that the inner lining hase to be worn in a bit, and the helmet will become a bit wider when used. The cheek pads in particular usually feel quite tight in the beginning but quickly become more comfortable.
The best way to determine whether a helmet has a good tight fit or simply is to small, is to keep the helmet on at home for half an hour to an hour. If you don't start to suffer from a headache or get red pressure spots, Then it's all good!
The ECE (22.05 / 22.06) standard is recognized in many countries around the world, but not all countries accept this standard for road use. It is important that your specific helmet has the correct certification for the country you are in.
The USA does not require helmets in every state. If you still want to wear a helmet for safety reasons, then there can in any case be no discussion about the certification of the helmet. Want to know which rules apply per state? You read it
Although the above quality marks are well known and widely used, there are also countries that use their own unique quality marks and only accept these.
