Bell Star 2010 Helmet Review

I’ve switched over from my trusty Scorpion EXO-700 to the new Bell Star 2010 Helmet. Bell was generous enough to ship one out to me for free (full disclosure).

Here are some of the following points I address in this video:

  • Visor removal
  • Visor features (locking and venting)
  • Ventilation
  • Graphic finish
  • Weight
  • Comfort
  • Variety of sizes
  • Overall quality

Here is a transcript that YouTube/Google transcribed from the video, which is completely inaccurate, but just plain amusing:

what I wanted to are you about
bill star two thousand
a apparently reason behind it
%uh polls close is just asking
and I did you get for about three months
of divides
yes I walked all the way up
and whoever’s here
how out
next big thing
we’re here
great soul of the black family which is something
you know
I thought that that means the
we were at the time
but the irony out
it wasn’t one
really special
part of that team
the husband
the part that question has not been getting
%uh hundred three
at his swearing in
%uh I can
the brewery actually the
she brings to it
she up here
thank you
it’s a whole and
the windshield
it was a real
the graphic
she had work
she’s a lot of money out of the energy
take apart
like that
stay with us
for hundred construction
so was just say everything apart
strip everything down
actually you know that the future really
in his vehicle
most for the what
suggestions she have here
cast of the
christians are that not Christian
I think that’s a good thing because a lot
more than one
they met sell out here
both states have personally years
you but the group

so well
so here you have to show

and that time really

    Have you tried a EXO-1000? This is the helmet I have now and, really, the only complaint I have about it is the weight…but it’s heavy because of the features. It’s one of the very few SNELL approved helmets with an internal sun shield and it has all of the other features you showed on the Bell. I’m in Texas and I think the ventilation on it is good, but others say it’s not.

    I love the transcript. Now you should convert it through a few languages with babelfish. What comes out the other side could pass for prophecy to the more gullible.

    @Nimdae I haven’t tried the EXO-1000. Loved by EXO-700 though for 3 years. I was looking into one a while ago, but was turned off by the weight.

    I’m new to this blog but I must admit that I thoroughly enjoy it. Do you often review helmets? If so, you should definitely check out SMS Helmets. They are high quality Italian designed helmets for your everyday moto needs.

    I would surely be interested in hearing what you have to say on the brand.

    How about sizing. Do you wear the same size in scorpio and bell star.


  • AtlasRider

    @defun Yes I wore an XS like my EXO-700 and I found the shell shape to be fairly similar. I needed to get the extra large cheek pads for a snug fit for my narrow head/face
