Bell Racing Helmets have been worn by more professionals than any other brand. Different auto racing classes require special attributes to get you every advantage possible. If you are in a stock car or road race production based car, you have different needs than an open cockpit racecar. Bell offers helmets for each faction of our sport in variable price levels so everyone can stay safe and within budget. Here are some of the differences you will see between a youth helmet and an open cockpit car helmet vs a closed cockpit (sedan) race car helmet.
-smaller shell to save weight
-doesn't have the extra thick padding that adult helmets have
-has a separate model line with styling
-features proven safety taken from their big brother counter-types.
Stock Car or Production Car:
-taller eye port
-wider peripheral view
-upgraded interior ventilation for closed cockpit (no ram air)
Formula Car/Open Cockpit/Karting:
-smaller eye port
-shield angle more aggressive to deflect debris
-active aero through chin lip spoilers or wickers
-smaller ventilation ports for reduced drag as ram air is a factor
