Bell Qualifier Helmet 4.5 5 206 206
Bang for your buck just buy one size small. I am a new rider so the cost to get started was a bit pricey. But this helmet was a great value the only issue I have with is is the sizing runs large so I would plan on buying one size smaller to get that snug fit that you will need when traveling at high speeds. August 15, 2016
Great helmet for the $. I was not disappointed when I received this helmet. July 26, 2016
First helmet and very happy so far This is my first motorcycle helmet so I really don't have much to compare it to. It's pretty comfortable so I have no complaints there. If there was anything I'd add, it would be some sort of velcro to make attaching a microphone easier. You do sweat a little when wearing the helmet when you're not moving but it's a helmet so it's no issue at all. Overall, I'm happy with it. I will eventually either buy a bluetooth helmet or a sena at attach it. July 22, 2016
Good helmet for the money Great helmet if you're on a budget. Pros: -Looks great -Feels great -Never had to test the helmets durability yet, (hopefully I will never have to) in a crash. But seems like it would hold up good. -Great air flow Cons: -Noisy, it's a very loud helmet. -Clunky visor Overall it's a decent helmet for the money, however I would spend a couple extra bucks on a different helmet if I had the chance to go back on it. I would recommend this to anyone who is on a tight budget, if not, I would definitely suggest going with a different helmet! July 7, 2016
Good entry-level full face helmet This was my first helmet. I got a medium with the "Legion" graphic. I used it for about 1000 miles, then upgraded to a Bell Vortex for reasons I'll elaborate on later. Bang for the Buck (5/5): Can't really beat it. It's an inexpensive full face helmet from a reputable brand that'll get you safely on the road. Style (5/5): It's nothing special, but with a variety of solid colors, matte colors, and graphic options, there's probably a Bell Qualifier out there for your style. Comfort (3/5): The helmet is lightweight and fairly compact, so your neck probably won't get tired from wind blast or anything, but this helmet is LOUD. This thing screams in your ears at any speed above 45 mph. Earplugs are a necessity at any speeds above "around town" speeds. The noise is painful after a while, and I would go so far as to say it's distracting to the point of being dangerous. Protection and durability (3/5): It's just a basic DOT certified helmet. Overall, I'd say it's average, 3/5. For the money, I'm sure this is one of the better helmets out there and I'd probably give it a higher rating, but I'm rating this purely based on protection, not protection per dollar spent. Air flow (4/5): It was fairly cool when I wore it in the summer months, but for the amount of wind noise I would have thought that there would be more cool air inside the helmet. Good amount of vents, but would greatly benefit from an additional front vent like the Vortex has. Features (3/5): It has a few vents, comfortable padding, room for a communicator (I think). Nothing special overall, but what more can you ask for at the price point. Overall it's a good basic helmet, but for a little more you could upgrade to a Bell Vortex helmet. That's what I did, and I'm extremely happy with it. This big selling point for me was that for a little more, I could have DOT cert and Snell 2010 cert with the Vortex, rather than just DOT cert on the Qualifier. I think it's worth it, but to each his own. I'd also recommend picking up another face shield for it. I didn't drop the money on one of those really nice photochromatic face shields, but I did get a dark smoke face shield. I used it with both the Qualifier and my current Vortex. August 17, 2016
Cool Helmet; Perfect for Heart Head Shape For such an affordable helmet, this one is incredibly comfortable with great visibility. It's fairly quiet for being lower cost. I also love the sleek style. I have higher cheekbones and more of a narrow chin than average, and this is the only helmet I've found in this style that fits snuggly around both my forehead and cheeks while still being comfortable. In other helmets of the same style I found size small too tight on my forehead but fitting my cheeks, and mediums fitting my forehead but too loose on my cheeks; so if you're having that same problem, I'd recommend trying the Qualifier out. July 3, 2016
A lot of Helmet for the Money Comfortable, good fit, and the quick release visor change is really slick. I would recommend getting the light smoked lens to for bright days. A whole lot of bang for not a lot of money. June 27, 2016
Great helmet for the price Bought this helmet for my girlfriend. She loves the style of it and the comfort of this helmet. August 2, 2016

New in the Bell lineup, the Qualifier is its brand new, sport-oriented, really what I'm going to call entry-level into the family. If we look into it, this is the original Bell arrow. The Qualifier is replacing it and honestly it steals a lot of DNA from a lot of the more race-inspired motorcycle helmets, like the Vortex, the RS1, the Star, encapsulates them just over that $100 mark and it's a complete leap forward over what we saw in the previous Bell Arrow platform. 

If you see them side by side, which I'm going to do really, really quickly, completely different  helmets. They're really from the outside in, completely different. Different shapes, different aerodynamic profiles. Bell spent a lot of time working that DNA down into a polycarb helmet, and at the end of the day the end-user, the entry-level sports rider is left with a lot of bang for the buck again in solids as well as graphics. This is the Cam graphic just over that $100 mark. 

Now, there are a lot of key differences. I'm going to walk through them in depth as we move through this video but quickly I'm going to call out one of the big changes that's going to make people very excited. The fit of the Bell Qualifier is now intermediate oval. Intermediate oval tends to be the most popular for the American market. The original Bell Arrow was more of a round fit. It's nice to see them going this direction. The new RS1 is this fit, the new Star is this fit. This is a very consistent Bell fit now that we're seeing perpetuate through this helmet. 

Keep in mind too if you're not sure about that, we're going to ship for free. You can always talk to a geek and I'd love to hear your gut reaction and your questions as I begin to roll through this. Click here, subscribe to us, at RevZilla TV our YouTube channel. Comments, questions feedback, your gut reaction. I certainly want to hear them and we want to be able to answer your questions on the fly. Now let's dive into the outside and work our way in. 

Looking at it again, fast graphic here on the cam, looking at the vent construction, much more aerodynamic profile. If I look at the Arrow which is right next to it, look at how round this sucker is. Just very round, very round and it's shaped very bulky in its shell shape and size. Again, you're still coming in in a polycarb shell around that three pounds six ounce mark which is extremely light weight, it is only DOT rated. It's not going to be EC, it's not going to be snow. If you need that original rating, move up into something, it's big brother will be something like the Vortex. 

But if you look at it, they've even changed the vent configuration. On top you're seeing low profile chimney vents that sweep back into a very nice and contoured spoiler that's built in with nice Venturi vents for exhaust that are going to be free flowing out the back. if you look at the chin vent, stolen directly from then RS1 here on the cam graphic done in matte black, my chin vent is incorporated there. Again, the new style new school Bell, this is again them stealing that DNA and wrapping it into their more entry level price point. 

Notice along the side here how everything sweeps together and you can again see as I pull to the top you're going to see that intermediate oval head shape bring its away narrow, front to back, all the way back versus being a round shape. 

The other thing they changed is now they've gone to the same shield that we're seeing. It's UV resistant, it's going to be optically correct, it's the same shield we see on an RS-1 or a new Star. Nice touch, why? Because you can upgrade to the photochromic Bell transition shield if you want to go this direction and remember that saves you having to buy a secondary smoke shield when you hit the outside light and the UV hits it, it immediately goes to a medium smoke tint. Just by virtue of having the UV hit it and you don't have to do anything, you don't have to swap. 

I consider an easy shield change mechanism, it's one of the easiest in the biz. Again, very simple, you saw, I just pulled that lever and the side pod pops right off, very easy to snap back on. Again, nice big gasket too, creating a nice seal around the eye port. 

Last piece to note on the shell is that there are three shell sizes on an entry level helmet which I really, really like. A lot of times, you'll see manufacturers, they have to cut costs, they're not going to do those additional molds. Bell has a full size range up to 2XL, 64 centimeters so it will definitely accommodate those guys with big guy mongo-sized heads. But again, when you're looking at it, they're giving you the  range to not add weight because you're only getting enough shell  as you need to be able to tune in that EPS and create safety and the correct amount of fit. 

Now, if I start to break it down from the inside out, let  me reach over here, I'm going to grab my donut. Completely redesigned in the interior guts as well. It's going to be moisture-wicking, anti-microbial, see the nice neckroll that pulls everything together. Premium guts here and again, you start to get some other bells and whistles when you move up into the Vortex, into the Star. But again, very simple in it's design, meant to be fully removable, fully washable, fully cleanable, let you de-gunkify your helmet over time, especially if you're riding in the summertime because we know that most of the sport bike crowd is really going to be, especially here in the northeast, going to be more warm weather-centric. So again, you're going to start to sweat, you're going to be able to pull all this stuff out, get it rinsed off, let it air out and give you the best chance to keep your helmet comfortable and less gunky over time. 

Basic cheek pad design. Nice contour, again, moving into that intermediate oval head shape. This is that new style shape from Bell. Notice we also have speaker cutouts. This helmet, the way the neckroll is designed, it will take a com system, a third party, so your Cardo's your, your Sena, there're other guys out there, the inner phones that need to clamp onto this neckroll. You're going to be able to do that no problem and have plenty of room so the speakers aren't going to be pressing into your ears. A lot of times, helmets, when they don't have the speaker cutouts over a longer ride, you might start to feel those speakers, you're not going to get that here on the Qualifier. 

Here's my 3-D comfort liner, it comes out. Again, this is entry level, so it's a little more basic in it's design but it is still 3-D. You can see here its cutaways at the top to allow that air to circulate in through the scalp and if you move it like this, you're going to see that they have the additional padding that goes around the brow line really, the crown of the head where you're going to sweat the most. 

Now, if I had to call it, I'd say that for me these snaps are a little bit low on the horizon. So, depending on your head shape you may or may not feel them. But again, moving into the more premium lines of helmets, you start to make those investments, you get some of those additional creature comforts. Moving towards the inside, no surprises here. Big vent cutaways, ten millimeter vent holes that sweep all the way back moving toward those Venturis and then down the neck line so you're gong to get a great amount of ventilation through the top and down. 

Bell has perfected this again in the Star, in the RS1, in the Vortex and now they're stealing that DNA and working it into a helmet that again is just going to be over that $100 mark. So, to sum up, what we like about this helmet is it's a tremendous amount of race-inspired DNA that we saw from the more expensive models trickle there way all the way down here into what they call their entry-level sport, or universal application. You know, over time though, depending on how much you ride and how hard-care you are, you might want to reach out for some of those more refined components and that's where you have to make that larger investment. 

So, again, you're trading bang for the buck factor for some of those nuances but that's what you know you're getting into especially if you need a secondary helmet, or a secondary riders helmet for 2up riding.
