STAR Race Proven Helmet with MIPS
Introduced back in 1967, the first full-face helmet on the market, the Bell Star has long represented THE standard in head protection, and it has inspired an industry to pursue the science of head protection. The new Star is the continuing evolution of that original ethos, and more. Drawing our inspiration from the essential needs of the modern racer, and loaded with quality features – TriMatrix composite shell, MIPS energy management, XStatic liner, and Panovision Class 1 optics - it’s a complete rethinking of what a race helmet should be.

LESS ENERGY=MORE PROTECTION
MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, which is a leading slip-plane technologyinside the helmet designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts.
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration can cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. The stretching of the tissue that can be caused by these motions can result in various types of brain injury. We believe that helmets equipped with MIPS technology can provide an additional measure of protection in certain impacts.
HOW IT WORKS
MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the brain’s own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.
