About to buy the bell star helmet as it has been reviewed very favorably. I currently have the icon mainframe fit very snug when I bought it seems to have deteriated very fast now it so sloppy I fear safty to wear it not impressed with that one. the transition lens on the bell is another reason I really like the star. Safty certs and price I have a deal for the cerwinski and the transition visor 425

My pit mate races with a Bell Star. He used to where an Arai Corsair like me. He doesn't use the transitioning face shield, just regular dark smoke. Here's what he says,

". . . honestly I really like it. I like the weight, the look, the stability, the air flow and the price. My Corsair probably fit better, but like all things helmet that's often a function of head shape. Road race helmets are essentially disposable so I have a hard time paying Corsair prices for a one hit helmet."

Don't know how much that helps.

those are cool but very pricy. ever checked out Akuma helmets? they are very nice and have the auto tint visor as well. u can get into one for a couple hundred cheaper than a bell. im rocking the Doragon
