Bell Star MIPS DLX Tantrum Helmet

Recommended Posts

As Bell was one of the first manufacturers to develop a full-face helmet for the motorcycling world, it’s only natural that same level of innovation would continue today. The Star MIPS DLX helmet employs an innovation that’s designed to mitigate brain injury in the event of a hit that’s beyond anything an EPS-lined helmet can currently achieve.

MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) technology, which was invented about 20 years ago and continually refined since then, works much like that of the human skull’s own impact mitigation system. It allows the helmet to rotate slightly on your skull in the event of an impact. That is to say, the helmet itself may move up to 15mm on top of your head while staying safely in place to reduce rotational injury to the brain. It’s almost like a sliding shock absorber for your helmet. Inside your skull, your brain does the same thing to reduce injuries – it slides along the inner portion of the skull a little way in order to reduce stresses that would otherwise damage brain function.

The MIPS device is fixed between the impact-absorbing liner and the X-Static comfort liner and requires no additional setup when donning the helmet – you wear it just like any other lid. There’s no additional equipment to fuss with, but the safety benefits are certainly worth it.

All of this is placed inside a shell made with Bell’s Trimatrix composite which combines aramid (Kevlar), carbon fiber and fiberglass materials for safety, durability and strength. Quick-release magnetically-attached cheek pads are also included as standard.

Out front, for your eyes, is a massive viewport. You won’t see much, if any, of the helmet when you put it on and pull the Provision, self-tinting visor into place. By self-tinting, we mean you won’t need to carry an additional visor with you everywhere you go. The UV-sensitive film automatically darkens in daylight and clears itself up in the dark. It’s a really nice feature!
