Bell Revolver EVO Hi-Vis Helmet
Delivers beyond expectations for the price.
I have been using this helmet for two weeks and have no complaints at all.
There were two sizes that technically would have worked for me: 7 1/4. I ordered the MED based on the comments of other reviewers saying this helmet ran slightly large. My main concern was that I wear chunky, thick-rimmed acetone glasses.
Is it comfortable with my glasses? Yes it is. It was perhaps slightly tight at first, but after 5 or so hours I feel it had broken in sufficiently to no longer be even vaguely uncomfortable. After 5 more hours, it was not even noticeable. I can put on and remove my glasses with little to no effort.
Does the Internal Sunshade catch on my Chunky frames? Not at all.
The only real negative thing I have to mention is that the chin-strap is maybe not in the optimum position for some riders. I don't have a huge adam's apple, but I do find the helmet a bit "chokey" if I over-tighten, even a little...If you have a big'un, maybe you should get a size larger if that makes sense or maybe this helmet is not for you.
Other than that, for the price I could not be happier. And really, for the price what more could you intelligently expect?

I would recommend it, if not for the noise.
I have this helmet for about 20 months now. It serves the purpose and I was very happy with it at first, but I have a few complaints. First, the noise level at speeds over 60 mph is too high. I have to wear ear plugs on rides longer than 10 minutes. The second, the material on the bottom of the cheek pads started to deteriorate and when rubs against the jacket collar it makes black marks that are hard to clean. Third, the fabric pad that holds the magnet in place detached and I had to sew it back on.

A very complete helmet
Got this helmet for the wife and I think is completely bang for the buck.
The style is very good, it constantly draws looks on the street. The color might be a bit deceiving on the pictures here but in person is brighter and cooler. The air vents add a lot of style and width to the helmet for impacts. The helmet is not that heavy for a modular (I would consider it standard) and quality seems pretty good for the price.
Not that heavy and looks really cool! The noise level is low considering it is a modular (got it as an upgrade for a Nolan Ncom N 102). The visibility is more than enough. The lenses could be a bit darker but they are okay. Fit is perfect and just take a couple of rides for the liner to adapt. Just measure and buy!
I will give it 5 stars. Oh! forgot to mention that it comes with a cover.

My First Full Face Helmet
I went to the RevZilla store @Navy Yard and was so impressed. The staff was extremely helpful and patient. The helmet I chose is perfect, fits great and love the Sena SMH5 bt that I purchased with it! (upgraded speakers a must)

Easy on - Easy off - and EASY TO SEE! I Recommend.
Bought this high viz helmet because it seems to me that about 90% of the automobile drivers around here are texting, talking, eating or otherwise detached from the moment - especially in-town riding. My other modular helmet is a (black) Schuberth C3... and this Bell Revolver compares favorably in fit and function. My talented daughter 'sharpied' a picture of Yosemite Sam on the back of the helmet. It adds a little character but doesn't detract from the helmet's capacity to trigger the eyes. My other helmets are size large. I ordered this Bell in large and it fit perfectly.

Great price for all the features and style.
Very versatile helmet for it's price. It has a great look and the fit is very snug. There is no room for sunglass so the internal shield is a must. The wind noise is loud at high speeds but I've had other helmets that I would ware earplugs with on long hauls.

Overall okay, visibility great.
Padding inside at the temple could use a recess for eyeglass/sunglasses to improve initial comfort. Flip down sun shield should be darker but is easy to operate. I would prefer a quick release for helmet strap instead of standard DD fastener. All helmets take time to break in and the size is correct for me but I have had others (Icon Alliance) that were more comfortable initially.

Love the helmet. The fitting chart is very accurate. Measure and order, it's that simple.
My only complaint is that the seams encasing the magnet in the chin strap failed after only two weeks. It's not enough of an impact to return the helmet, but was still disappointed in the quality of the strap.
