Bell Qualifier Hi-Vis Rally Helmet
On the nose for Quality / Price
I never thought I'd be able to get a Bell helmet for under $ 250.00; and if you add the look, the hi-vis fact and the 5 year warranty, there´s no better helmet than the Bell Qualifier.

Really great for the value
If I had to use any budget-priced helmet for the rest of my life, this would definitely be the one I'd pick. It fits great, and offers a really wide viewing angle compared to a couple of other helmets I've owned. The quick change visor system is also a great feature that I use when it starts to get dark out. I've got the gold metallic visor as well as the clear one that comes with the helmet, and I can stick one in a backpack without sacrificing any storage capacity for other gear. It's got room behind the cheek pads for a microphone or communication system, but it's only three inches by one and a half, and half an inch deep.

First helmet, but im loving it
Just tried and it was very comfortable. The size chart worked fine so the size i ordered fits me well. At the beginning its really thight but im sure it will break in soon.
The style is awesome, i think the shape and clear visor makes it look nice.
Bell is a brand ive heard of so i feel my head is in good hands even though its and early entry helmet.

Good helmet for the price. Not reflective as stated in the video
The Bell Qualifier Hi-Vis Rally helmet has surprising quality for the entry level price. Paint and finish are top notch and seem durable. However, the silver and yellow portion of the helmet are not reflective as stated in the video. It is more visible than an all black helmet, but not very "Hi-Vis" as suggested. Visor has 3 major detents: fully closed, cracked open, and fully open. They were slightly rough when new, but have broken in well over time. Venting is decent, but nothing spectacular. The removable lining is comfortable and wicks sweat away reasonably well. Note on sizing, M/L share the same shell size. The shell is larger wearing than other more expensive options. Weight seems on the heavier side, but expected, with a polycarbonate shell and shared shell sizes. Fortunately, it is well balanced. For the price this helmet is awesome. A little extra weight, larger shell than others, and only okay venting are the major downsides. Everything else is quality and better than the suggested entry level price. If you can live with these points this is a great helmet for a beginner or veteran.

Great entry-level helmet with hi-viz accents
This is my first bike and my first helmet.
I was looking for an inexpensive helmet to get started. I wanted something that was hi-viz, but not completely neon.
This fit the bill.
I spoke with a Revzilla Gear Geek who helped me choose a size (different than what I was going to select) and it fits perfectly. A little too snug the first day, but fine after that.
As a n00b, I can't really comment on relative things like wind noise or weight, but I find it comfortable and my ears aren't ringing after some time on the highway, so I'll call it "very good".
My plan was to upgrade next spring, but I don't think I need to. Very happy, so far.

This is a really good helmet for the price. You get the bell quality standards and a great looking helmet for very little. Highly recommend.

I bought this helmet for a few reasons. Bell is a brand I have heard of, the brand recognition made me favor it over some helmets I'd never heard of. I was also looking for an entry level helmet with a bit of style and comfort, and this helmet delivers. I've been wearing it for a few weeks, and I really like it so far. I had tried on a few different helmets at a local store and for the price nothing came close in comfort for me.
