Clear as a Bell
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
