Bell RS7C LTWT
We’re always on the lookout for the latest in head protection; the closer we can get to what the pros wear— without entirely decimating our budget—the better. So we’re excited about Bell Racing’s new RS7 Carbon Lightweight helmet. Bell developed it in collaboration with Team Penske’s NASCAR operation, and extensive reengineering of the already excellent, standard RS7 Carbon (an Automobile favorite) led the company to build a helmet that weighs less than 2.75 pounds—almost a full pound lighter than the regular version—without compromising impact performance. That’s significant and results in less driver fatigue and improved comfort. Almost as cool, Bell will for the first time across its HP Series range of lids offer various interior liner colors (a $200 upgrade) beyond the drab gray or black of most helmets. The RS7C LTWT is available with a host of additional options as well.
