The advanced Star GP continues the Bell tradition of developing next-generation aerodynamic helmets that deliver stability at high-speeds in a compact, ultra-lightweight design. Developed with feedback from the world?s best F1, Indy Car and Karting drivers, the SAH2010 Star GP is the helmet of choice for open wheel and formula racers.

The Star GP features an ultra-lightweight carbon composite shell, high-tech aggressive styling and a pro-plus style interior that provides superior comfort. The pro-plus interior delivers a custom interior fit by combining Bell?s soft plush-density fit pad system, contoured cheek-grip pad system to reduce movement and integrated collar that is designed to fully support the driver?s lower jaw bone area. In addition, the Star GP incorporates an industry-leading ventilation system that maximizes airflow inside the helmet. Star GP?s air intake force-injects airflow into the helmet?s forehead vents in a wide dispersion pattern to cool a greater surface area on the inside of the helmet. The helmet?s upper direct-flow chin bar vents and lower ram-air chin bar vents combine to deliver maximum airflow to the front of the helmet for additional cooling and to prevent shield fogging.

The Star GP has been designed to work with Bell?s aero kits to configure the helmet for all open wheel and open compartment forms of racing depending on aerodynamic requirements and racing environment. While the Star GP has a front aero lip and chin bar designed into the helmet, these aerodynamic kits enhance helmet performance to provide greater stability at higher speeds. The aerodynamic kits include top wicker gurneys which create an air separation point on the top of the helmet to allow airflow to detach from the helmet reducing buffeting, chin bar gurneys which add down force to the front of the helmet to prevent lift and rear spoilers that improve overall helmet stability. Because of the way airflow accelerates at higher speeds, Bell recommends using larger size gurneys at lower relative speeds and medium or smaller gurneys as speeds increase. The Star GP comes with a .190mm air intake as standard equipment that can be replaced as necessary. Bell makes a .160mm air intake (sold separately) for high-speed configurations. The aero kits attach with double sided adhesive that holds aggressively to the shell yet can be removed easily without damaging the helmet?s finish.

An effective helmet is one that fits properly. Have an assistant use a measuring tape, or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your head starting at a point approximately one inch above the eyebrows in front, around a point in the back of the head that results in the largest possible measurement, and finally wrapping back to the front. It is a good idea to take several measurements to make sure you have the largest one.
