The Bell tradition of leading the helmet industry in innovation and superior engineering continues with the BR1. The Snell SA2010 BR1 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 BR1 race helmet to adapt to their individual needs and different forms of racing throughout their career.
The BR1 features a lightweight composite shell, leading-edge styling, aero front lip and a large eyeport. The standard BR1 racing helmet is sold in the rear vent configuration 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 BR1'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 as Speedway Part #2102207 & #2102170 respectively), 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.
Complete flexibility. The BR-1 can be used as a traditional helmet, side or top forced air.
