No matter what or how you ride, one factor remains constant: the need for maximum visibility. Whether racing or going on a simple ride in the mountains, the ability to make safe head-checks and see obstacles clearly is critical. The Panovision viewport in the new Star helmet offers riders additional vertical and lateral visibility over the previous Star and more traditional viewports. This allows the rider to see better in a tight or tucked position and make safer lane changes and head-checks.
Bell and photochromic pioneers Transitions Optical have come together to create the Transitions SOLFX shield which automatically adapts to light conditions, darkening when exposed to sunlight and clearing in low light. It eliminates the need to change between tinted and clear shields when riding in the light of day, the darkness of night and anything in between.
Replacement Panovision Transitions faceshield for the 2016 Bell Pro Star, Race Star and Star helmets.
Shield tint automatically adjusts to lighting conditions.
Darkens from fully clear to dark tint in about 10 seconds in bright sunlight.
