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.
When the cheek pads that came with my helmet were just a little too snug, I ordered these replacement paisa after being guided by one of their in house product specialists.
Now no more chipmunk cheeks when I have my helmet on, and also no more mouth discomfort from it being so tight inside the helmet.
Thank you !
The only complaint I have is my last shield ratcheted up and down and I could leave it in a partially open position while in town to get more air, this one locks up and down very securely but not in the middle positions. Other than that minor complaint I'm very pleased with it.
