Circuit Of The Americas And Bell Helmets Create Limited-Edition Star Carbon Helmet
Circuit of The Americas (COTA) and Bell Helmets have partnered to create a limited quantity, commemorative Texas-themed Star Carbon helmets. For the first time ever, motorsports fans will have the opportunity to own a special edition helmet complete with custom artwork honoring the Lone Star State from Chris Wood, founder and creative director of Airtrix.
The helmet features a red, white and blue flag motif on the front with both the American and State of Texas flags, which wraps around the rear to merge with a hardwood design reminiscent of the floorboards in a Western saloon. The helmet is crowned with a Longhorn cattle skull, giving it a colorful and imposing appearance. The specially designed helmet also features a horseshoe, the COTA logo and the event logo representing the 2014 Red Bull MotoGP of The Americas.
A limited number of helmets are now available for purchase until April 13. Helmets are available for $699.95 at http://bit.ly/COTAhelmet.
