Get Your Head Scanned for a Custom Helmet Fit
(Press release edited by #webBikeWorld) - We get many emails from webBikeWorld visitors who can't quite find a helmet that fits correctly. Well, here's your chance to get a custom-fitted Bell Star helmet for your exact head shape! Bell will laser scan your head and make a helmet just for you. It's not cheap, but it may be worth it if you're like me, with a head shape no off-the-shelf helmet can match.
To learn more, visit the Bell Helmets booth at the upcoming MotoGP race at the Circuit of the Americas on April 11-13.
Here's the Bell Helmets press release:
There's nothing quite like a custom fit suit, tailored specifically to the dimensions of the body. But suits aren't designed to save your life. Helmets on the other hand are, and this week, fans on hand at the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas will have the chance to have a motorcycle helmet custom designed to the unique contours of their skull.
It's all part of a new technology being rolled out to consumers by long-time American helmet innovators, Bell Helmets.
For the first time ever in Austin, and only the second time ever, consumers will have the opportunity to purchase a truly one-of-a-kind CUSTOM Bell Star helmet, designed specifically to the unique characteristics of their skull.
This high-tech process of digital mapping, is typically how Bell provides its professional athletes with an extra-special edge with a helmet that is literally formed to the exact physical shape of the rider's head.
No two cranium shapes are exactly the same, and when riders demand the absolute best for their head, there's nothing better than a custom fit.
Using a proprietary, 3D imaging program, Bell Helmets has created an industry-first, custom-mold process for the Star Carbon. The result is a fit like no other helmet on the planet – made for the rider's exact specifications. ... See MoreSee Less
WebBikeWorldJust talked to Bell, it's $650.00 for the Bell Star Carbon helmet, plus the cost of the scan and custom manufacturing. Total about $1,000.00, not bad actually!1 week ago ago
WebBikeWorldUPDATE: Bell told me the plan is to ultimately train select retailers to scan customers' heads and the send the data to Bell for them to create the special custom-fit! Can't wait!1 week ago ago
William ConnorNice review. Pretty good looking jacket, nice price point. Wish they had more technical info available. PCM is nice. Now if only I could find a PCM waterproof summer glove.2 weeks ago ago

HELMET USE SAVES LIVES
But we knew that, right? Very interesting graphics; scroll down through the "live" graphic charts, to see how quickly deaths rise when a state eliminates helmet laws.

Kevin Watson...figure that out all by yourself? Probably more brain damage thinking up such a concept, who'd have ever thought a helmet might save a life... Stunning revalation...2 weeks ago ago
Tom SteeleI find it odd that it's obviously mostly casual cruiser riders who object to helmet laws (and loud pipe laws), whereas sport, touring, scooter, and adventure-touring riders mostly wear their helmets regardless of the law...and don't bitch about it. Common sense dictates that helmets save lives, just as seat belts and airbags do, but you don't hear anybody harping on the legislated use of seat belts and airbags, do you? Why is that? Well, because it's just not cool to wear a helmet (or have quiet pipes) on a cruiser! Everybody KNOWS that, but nobody SAYS that. Cruiser riders will, instead, develop their own unique set of rules and "logic" to support their claim that wearing a helmet actually threatens their lives, such as impeding peripheral vision or blocking their hearing ability. There are entire GROUPS of cruiser riders, such as ABATE (which stands for "A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments"), who are against ANY legislation restricting their "freedom" at all. (Note: ABATE was originally formed to keep motorcycle choppers, with extended front ends that were deemed unsafe, on the road. Now they're focused against helmet and loud pipe laws.) So, back to the helmet laws....common sense, right, or so you'd think. However common sense doesn't count when you ride a cruiser, so we'll keep on burying our witless brothers who don't have sense enough to wear a helmet or, worse yet, tube feed them for years while they live their brain-dead lives in a hospital vegetable patch. Meanwhile, the fight against helmets goes on, and on, and on, and on..... Guys, WTF?2 weeks ago ago
William ConnorWell duh. Riders who die not wearing a helmet go up when people don't have to wear helmets. Weirdly riders who die wearing a helmet goes down. If you pass a helmet law the number of riders who die wearing helmet go up. Neat right. More people die doing one or the other because more people are doing one or the other. I believe in helmets, but this numbers game is all garbage. It's also been shown that when helmet laws are repealed more people ride, which in turn would also lead to more motorcycle related deaths. Helmeted, or helmet less.2 weeks ago ago
