I got a different one, a bell race star. was looking for lighter than I had, it is, carbon fiber yadda yadda something.
I added a transitions lens on it and so far I like it. took a bit to get used to it because sizing is small, tighter.

The finest helmets are made in Germany by none other than Helmut Schmidt. Former CHANCELLOR OF WEST GERMANY.

After he retired he got into the helmet business.

Just like Smuckers, with a name like Helmut it has to be good!

Here's a pic of my FORMER BELL helmet, beside the new one w/ the graphics.



It was replaced under warranty by BELL when a wire broke so that I could not 'open' the helmet anymore. I much preferred the original w/ shiny surfaces!
