Bell RS-1 Emblem Helmet - $149.00 (Retails for $399.00)
Available in Black/Hi-Vis Yellow - Sizes XS and Small only

More on the Bell RS-1 Helmet:

Motorcycle helmets are meant to do one thing above all others, and that is to keep your head safe. This common goal doesn’t mean that choosing a helmet is easy, however. The shear number of options and features can make shopping for one a daunting task. Luckily there are helmets like the Bell RS-1 out there to help simplify things. The Bell RS-1 is a jack-of-all-trades that comes from boiling down many features from the top-of-the-line Bell Star into a mid-range helmet. Don’t let the mid-range designation fool you though, as it punches well above its weight (especially at this sale price!).

The Bell RS-1 is a SNELL M2010 and DOT approved helmet that sits in a sweet spot, both performance and price-wise. The sleek, aggressively shaped shell is made from a Kevlar/Fiberglass composite that makes it both strong and lightweight. The RS-1’s shell cuts a profile that is similar to that of the Bell Star, which results in an excellent aerodynamic balance that keeps buffeting to a minimum. Air also flows through the helmet very well. The Velocity Flow Ventilation system is adjustable and quietly keeps your head cool.

Internally, the Bell RS-1 is a comfortable place to be. The lining and cheek pads feel very plush on the skin, right out of the box. They also break in quickly. An Agion Antibacterial treatment helps keep things fresh, but the lining is fully removable and washable in case things get a bit too sweaty. The RS-1 comes with a clear NutraFog II anti-fog/anti-scratch shield, which is the same as the Star. The ClickRelease shield mechanism is also shared, making for shield changes that can be done in seconds.

As of this post, there is no other helmet that can do everything that the Bell RS-1 is capable of for anywhere near our sale price of $179. It offers track-level performance and street-ready comfort without compromising much in either area.
