RS-1 replacement

    RS-1 replacement


    Looking for suggestions for a helmet with a similar fit to the Bell RS-1. It's finally time to retire my Gen 2 Bell Star so I 'm shopping for its replacement. I don't care for the RS-2 (drop down visor & no Snell rating) and can't see what the lower end of the new Bell Star line have to justify the price.

    Hoping to pick up something during the next couple weeks and appreciate advise on a similar helmet. Fit and Snell rating more important than brand. Thanks for the help.

    I'm also interested to hear about this. My suggestion would be a Bell Star MIPS, but it's purely based on internet browsing rather than actually trying it on.

    What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
    First you screw, then you bolt.

    The one thing I do like about the RS-1 vs the Star was that it seemed to fit a bit more snug on the side of the face and didn't move around as much as the Star at speed when I'd turn my head. I guess I should ask if EU standards are equal to Snell.

    Once you’ve had a helmet with a drop-down sun visor, you won’t want a helmet without it.

    Personally, I put more weight on the ECE standards than Snell.

    I have the transition shield for the street. What about the ECE testing stands out as a better certification.
