Bell Qualifier Winger Helmet
Great helmet for big head
I previously had an AFX helmet in size XXXXL. It still caused a pressure point on the front of my head, and my chin would hit the chin bar. Being my first helmet, I thought that was just how they fit.
After being out of riding for 5 years, I recently bought a new bike and wanted to get a new helmet hoping for a better fit. My head measures 24 1/8", is a slightly long oval, and I have a slightly fuller face(I'm 6'6", 265lbs). So after having a 4XL helmet previously, I was skeptical to buy the 2xl that the sizing chart said I would fit into. Once I got the helmet in, I was surprised to find it fit PERFECTLY on the crown of my head. I did have to buy thinner cheek pads(2XL comes with 35mm cheek pads, I bought the 30mm replacement pads), and once I installed those, this helmet fits like a dream. The vents work well for airflow, and I'm able to still wear my sunglasses. All in all, this is a great helmet at a great price. OH, and the graphics on the winger helmet look great, I've gotten many compliments on the unique look of this helmet.

Crashed in one before
This my second one. The first one I hit the front brakes doing 68mph and went over the front on the beltway. Helmet protected my head with no problem. Landed face first then slid about 20ft on the road. Looking for a helmet with padding in the front. By landing on my face teeth went through my chin under my lip and fracture jaw. My head was fine.

This helmet is great for the price
This helmet was a great buy. For the price, it was exactly what I wanted. Comfortable, lightweight and I loved the artwork on it. Would buy another of the same.

Quality & Comfy
This helmet looks beautiful, the pictures do no justice. The shape is pretty aggressive and looks great with black gear. The graphics are very detailed and reflective. I get a lot of looks with this helmet.
The fit is perfect, I measure 22" 1/4 and ordered a medium. It's a snug, yet very comfortable fit. I do not wear a helmet normally aside from track days which are few and far between this year. I also do not wear hats. That being said the helmet was bit itchy on the top of my head near the intake vents. This is most likely me just adjusting to wearing a helmet regularly for the first time in 7 years.
Air flow is ok at best, perhaps even below average. I have an extremely bias view since I'm used to no helmet at all. The bottom vent works well and moves a lot of air. I barely noticed the top vents and the overall air flow of the entire helmet is below average in my opinion.
The strap is comfy and functions just fine but I do miss the magnetic design I used to have but not a true con. I just thought I'd mention it!
Detaching and reattaching the visor is simple. This is the best system I've ever encountered but I've only owned a GMax and Harley-Davidson helmet in the past. Still I can imagine making it any easier.
Weight wise, it is very light. I think around 3 lbs 6 ounces? Could be wrong, anyways I forget it is on after only a few miles.
Now overall the Helmet is an easy 5/5. The price is fantastic, great design, quality, easy to change visor, beautiful graphics, light weight, and the only con is the poor air flow. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an aggressively styled helmet with a quality build on a budget.

My First New Helmet
It's a great helmet compared to the HJC I received when I purchased my 2002 Yamaha R1 it's lighter fits great ( a little tight at first but once broken in feels good) has easy access to three vents but you can't wear glasses without pressure to your temple. ( helmet design is not reflective). I would definitely recommend this helmet for the price. But as I save a little more I will buy a better helmet with more amenities.

I had been looking for a new helmet for riding around town and doing back road twistys that wouldn't break the bank, so naturally I went to my go to site for all my gear, Revzilla. The helmet is very comfortable and doesn't squeeze your face like my old AGV did. The design on this helmet is incredible! its very cool yet subtle enough to not look entirely ridiculous. I also highly recommend the dark smoke visor with this helmet. I only have one gripe though. I use a Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth system and I have to use the sticker mount because the clamp will not work with this helmet as there is no room for the clamp to go up in the shell. It isn't a huge problem, I just like the clamp because it is a little more sturdy and allows you to move it to another helmet easier. Also Revzilla shipped it to me in less than 3 days! Overall this is an awesome helmet at a great price with Bell quality!
