Bell Racing BR-1 Auto Racing Helmet
The Bell tradition of leading the helmet industry in innovation and superior engineering continues with the BR.1. The Snell SA2010 BR.1 is the first model in the industry that can be used as a traditional helmet, side forced air or top forced air helmet. By utilizing an innovative kit system, racers can now customize the BR.1 to adapt to their individual needs and different forms of racing throughout their career.
The BR.1 features a lightweight composite shell, leading-edge styling, aero front lip and a large eyeport. The standard BR.1 is sold in the rear vent configuration (Top Picture) featuring a Venturi air exchange system. As air flows over the helmet, the Venturi effect increases cooling inside the helmet and prevents the shield from fogging by creating a vacuum that pulls airflow through the helmet. The BR.1's rear facing chin bar vents and top vent provide ventilation while preventing dirt and dust from entering the helmet.
Thanks to the versatility of the BR.1, racers no longer have to choose between a side forced air or top forced air model. By installing either the side (left) forced air or top forced air kit (BR.1 kits sold separately), the BR.1 becomes a full ventilation forced air helmet. By using the kit system, racers can easily switch the BR.1 to the desired configuration for their type of racing. The BR.1 incorporates Bell's air chamber technology to increase pressure and accelerate airlow (when used with an external forced air system) to maximize airflow for improved ventilation and comfort. Bell's 2011 forced air helmet features the new Quick Lock forced air nozzle that locks the forced air conector in place yet allows for easy release when its time to exit the vehicle. The smaller nozzle design helps accelerate airflow into the helmet. The Quick Lock nozzle can be used with traditional 1.5 inch diameter forced air hoses by using the following air adaptor kits that connect the hose with the Bell Quick Lock nozzle:
2029000 - FORCED AIR ADAPTOR (STRAIGHT) - $7.95
2029001 - FORCED AIR ADAPTOR (90-DEGREE) - $9.95
The BR.1 also features Bell's redesigned face piece with recessed areas that allow for seamless radio integration and easy installation. Racers can also customize the fit of the BR.1 by using Bell's Cheek Pad Inserts in 5mm, 10mm, 15mm and 20mm sizes to tighten the fit in the cheek area. The helmet is available in White and Rubberized Matte Black finish - the rubberized surface is more resistant to finger prints and smudges than traditional flat finishes. The BR.1 takes a 281 SRV Shield and each helmet comes with a clear shield and Bell visor strip as standard equipment. The BR.1 is pre-drilled for use with head and neck restraint devices.
