    Bell Race Star

    I'm seriously considering this... If It fits as good as my Bell Carbon M6 it's a pure winner...looks fantastic..

    Alex had his eye on one too. I don't really need a new lid... My Arai RX V annoys the **** out me, it drags so much, my Bell M6 is top drawer but isn't as pretty as this baby..

    FWIW, I could never find one in the right size to test...and they are very race, no ratchet on the visor to open by degrees it's open or shut.
    After spending a while in J&S testing 10 different lids. The X-Lite 803RR is the lightest and nearly perfect, just the interior seemed to move too much on my forehead...but I think on the move it would be fine. It's nearly 400g lighter than an Arai which is a lot when you're talking about fatigue.

    I will definitely be getting the Shoei X-Spirit III next time. It's just the perfect bash hat for my noggin.

    I have always had HJC then moved to the X-lite RR it's a great lid would definitely recommend.

    Cheers Kenny...it looks really smart.. I'm confident enough to order one without trying it on mainly due to me having the earlier model... Boomaz has just rubber stamped it !

    Ive bought 2 lids and 4 sets of leathers in the last 2 years lol...
