1. Custom Bell Star Helmet – $1,100
Okay, it’s a hundred bucks more than the specified limit of this category and the product isn’t actually available until after Xmas, but what motorcyclist wouldn’t want a custom-fit helmet sometime in 2014? Starting with a Star Carbon helmet, Bell scans your cranium then constructs an internal EPS liner to fit your noggin like a hand in a velvet glove.
We covered the custom Bell Star process here and were impressed with the technology and resulting levels of comfort and performance. So stash away whatever cash you receive as gifts this year to put towards a custom Bell helmet of your own, and keep an eye out for when Bell will be offering custom fittings next year.
