Clear as a Bell

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Two Wheels -

US hel­met maker Bell has launched an­other po­ten­tial life­saver with its Tran­si­tions vi­sor, which changes shade de­pend­ing on light in­ten­sity. The com­pan is best known for its race hel­mets but Monza Im­ports signed up to bring in its mo­tor­bike hel­mets late last year. Most rid­ers go for some form of smoked vi­sor to cut sun glare but then have to carry a clear vi­sor for night rid­ing or cope with re­duced vi­sion.

Safe and not sorry: Don Mor­gan’s hel­mets give greater pro­tec­tion to rid­ers’ heads; Alex Debon (above) and Valentino Rossi (top) hit the track in ear­lier Mo­toGP sea­sons
