The Bell Star DLX Mips Shockwave is a premium sports helmet with a Tri-Matrix shell and an innovative MIPS energy management system.
Derived from the original helmet released in 1967, the Bell Star has long represented the standard all full-face helmets should strive to achieve; the latest version now incorporates a smaller profile with finely tuned aerodynamics, and now MIPS technology.
Held within a Tri-Matrix composite shell, the Bell Star takes advantage of MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System): this technology consists of a low-friction slip-plane system that rotates inside the helmet, mimicking the brain's own protection system, to slow and reduce the amount of energy transferred to the head during angular impacts and a variety of potential crash scenarios.
The VelocityFlow Ventilation system uses a series of adjustable vents on the chin bar, brow and top of the helmet to intake cool air, run it through the inner channels of the helmet, and out the rear exhaust. The Panovision Class 1 visor provides an excellent field of vision, the X-Static XT2 silver lining is moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial, and the magnetic cheek pads are interchangeable.
When you order a helmet online, we can only accept a return when the helmet is unworn and HAS NOT been used out on the motorcycle. When you receive your helmet, please try it on for around an hour in the comfort of your home, do not go out on the motorcycle with it. If the helmet is too loose or too tight, get in touch, and we will help to provide a return.
Circumference Measurement: Wrap a measuring tape around your head starting from the centre of your forehead. Measure about an inch above your eyebrows and hold the tape comfortably snug. Take the length and complete it again for good measure. Use the largest of the two readings.

It’s no coincidence that Bell is both the first name in speed and the first name in helmets. Born in the 1950's California hot rod and racing scene, Bell founder Roy Richter built an entire industry anticipating the unmet needs of those with a speed-hungry disposition. People wanted to drive fast … he corralled all the go-fast parts he could find into the world’s first speed shop. They wanted to race … he built them race cars. And when the need-for-speed started to reveal some grim realities, Roy did something about that too and Bell Helmets was born.
Roy Richter spent his life removing the limits of what was possible — and his unlimited spirit has been Bell’s guiding light for nearly 60 years, earning the admiration, trust and loyalty of generations of champions. Throughout those years nearly every advance on the list of helmet “firsts” were built under Bell’s auspices. That drive to anticipate and create continues, as much a part of Bell’s ethos today as it was back in Roy’s day.
Whether for auto racing, motorcycling or bicycling, Bell is synonymous with instilling confidence and enabling awesomeness. Established 1954, proven ever since.
