Riders Discount now has the newest edition to Bell’s extremely popular Star Carbon line-up - the RSD Black Beauty.

As with the previous Bell Star Carbon helmets, this version uses an outer shell that is made from 100% carbon fiber. Bell spent a great deal of time engineering the shell to be not only lightweight and strong, but very aerodynamic as well. What they came up with was an angular shape with a uniquely contoured spoiler, both of which make this helmet extremely stable and resistant to buffeting. Air doesn’t only flow over the exterior nicely, it also flows in through the strategically placed vents at the front. This fresh air then pushes the warm air around your head out the exhaust vents at the back to help keep you cool and fresh. All vents are independently adjustable so that you can dial in the ventilation for different conditions.

Designed by long time Bell Collaborator, Roland Sands, the RSD Black Beauty graphic is laid over the carbon fiber in such a way that it doesn’t cover it up. This allows the weave to show through, and we think that’s a great design element. Who doesn’t like the look of carbon fiber?

Feel free to get in touch Brad if you have any questions about the Bell Star Carbon RSD Black Beauty, or any other Bell products. You can give him a call at 866.931.6644 ext. 810 or shoot him a PM through the forum. You can also send an email to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM if that’s more convenient.

All Bell helmets come with a clear shield as standard, but we have all the optional shields available - including dark smoke (pictured) and the SolFX Transitions shield.

Like the Bell Star Carbon helmet but not a fan of the RSD graphics? Riders Discount also has the Matte Carbon version available for those of you that just want the the carbon fiber weave in all of its glory.

The Bell Star Matte Carbon helmet shown here with a dark smoke shield.


All of the great aerodynamic features, with none of the graphics covering the carbon fiber.

Got mine a couple days ago thanks to RidersDiscount and a long phone discussion with Brad. Great customer service. Great price. Amazing helmet. It seems as though Bell is not giving the really nice helmet bags with them anymore. They still are nice bags but the older bags I have seen in reviews for them were much nicer with an extra shield carrying case. This isn't a deal breaker but just thought someone might be interested. Like I said, Still a solid bag.

Snatched up a Transitions shield to go with it. Great combo.

My Bell distributor came by my shop and showed me this helmet. It's something to rival Shoei's RF-1100. Though I have not rode in this Bell helmet, it looks very promising. Also, with their transition shields coming out, this might be my next buy.
