I agree with other customer. I'm out postage, return postage because of finding the right size cheek pads. Bell should give us a coupon for resizing cheek pads instead of taking the ones in the helmet. I live in a rural area so don't have the option of shopping in a retail store.
First off, this shield is for the new 2016 Bell Star line. You can tell by the bottom little extra bit of shield that comes down. This shield does not fit the old Bell Stars. Make sure you get the right one.
But if you have a 2016 Star like me, then this is a must buy. I bought my helmet here from MSS right when it came out and had to wait for these to come out. You get the same level of optical clarity as the OEM (which is outstanding - I've never had a shield so easy to see through).
I have the dark smoke (not a reflective one). It looks fantastic on my black/red Star Pace. In full sunlight people will be able to see your face. If that bothers you get the reflective. The amount of tinting is just right for sunny days.
I purchased this helmet almost brand new from a friend. I find it to be very well made, and the sound is tolerable. The air flow is pretty good for this price helmet. My other helmet is a Shoei and it is really old, so this helmet seems futuristic in comparison.
Great looking helmet. I like the longer bell sun shade. The adjustable circumference lets the helmet sit lower on my head. However, my problem is with the drop down sun visor. It is a dark smoke which is what I wanted, but the drop down hits my glasses so I cant use it.
Looking at pictures of this and the Scorpion 110, the drop down on the Bell is on a closer radius to the center than the Scorpion.
My wife's earlier model scorpion drop down works perfectly and doesn't come too close to my glasses. So . . I ether need a greater radius drop down or a pug face.
Had to send it back. The MCSuper store is great about that. (I tried a 3/4 helmet with a drop down which worked ok but the fuller face felt too confining. They uncomplainingly took that back too.)
I will continue to buy from MCS because of their return policy.
