Bell Revolver EVO Skratch Pin Stripe Helmet
Great Helmet at a great price
This helmet just looks great! The paint and finish are exceptional. It is very well built and feels secure. Not as noisy as I expected. Overall a great deal!

Great price for all the features
I like this helmet. Looks good and feels good. Compared to my icon variant, it feels a little lesser quality but it's half the price! I'd recommend it. I also wished the dark smoke visor was available at time of purchase. I'm still waiting a month later for it to be in stock. Other than that, overall 4 out of 5 for me. I'd recommend.

Overall, this helmet is badass.
This product had some pretty cool features. Looks great and fits great. I recommend it if you are willing to drop more than 100 dollars on a helmet.

Nice helmet for the money.
This helmet is loaded with features for the cost. It fits well and looks great. I have wanted a modular helmet for a long time because I have a hard time getting my big head into full helmets. With the modular I can open the front, get my head in, and close the front without a problem. I really like the style, I ride a HighBall so most of the other helmets didn’t fit the style of the bike but this one was perfect with its flat black and red and white pin stripping. All and all I really like the helmet. It could be a little quieter but I won’t complain to much for the price.

Looks sharp, fits well but is awfully noisy.
There is no denying that this is one of the best looking modular helmets in the market today. It looks fantastic and the pinstripe graphics is top-notch. Size was perfect and I followed the sizing chart. The look was the main reason I ordered this and I guess I got what I asked for.
I was very disappointed with the noise level however. I checked and rechecked if everything was closed and all vents were shut but the noise is simply maddening. It's like you are sitting on the wing of a jet plane. I'm extremely disappointed with the noise level. To be honest, my four year old HJC CL-MAX helmet that I bought for $90 is much quieter.
Sadly, I wont recommend this to anyone who rides far at constant high speeds.

A bit loud, but great for the money.
I've been riding with this helmet for about two weeks now, so here are my general first impressions, starting from the outside in, and then some of the more intangibles.
The paint job is really nice. One nitpick is that the flip up pinstripes don't quite line up with the rest of the helmets, but it's not very noticeable. The helmet fits together well and feels very secure when locked in.
The interior is incredibly plush and soft, especially considering the price. I love the magnetic d-ring strap, no more messing around with snaps, or having the strap bounce around. I wish that the stock sun shield was dark smoke instead of light though. Also I'm not entirely sure about the mechanism for the sun shield, it works nicely, but I worry that the spring will break after extended use. The chin curtain is very nice, one of the better versions I've seen. It is very sturdy, and allows quick access to the button to flip up the faceplate.
There is a ton of airflow through the helmet, with most of it coming through the lower vents, and just a bit through the sealing area of the flip up sections.
My one real complaint with this helmet is that it is not very quiet. It's fine for going around town which is 95% of my riding, but I would need to take earplugs if I were going on a trip. I for one though would take the noise for getting the amount of ventilation that flows through this helmet.

Ratical paint scheme. Loved the color.
Out of the box the helmet looked fantastic. The Radical pin striping was a nice touch. I put the helmet on and noticed right away a sort of looseness in the hinges that I wasn't accustomed to (it was my first modular helmet). I took it on the road and almost immediately noticed a huge amount of wind noise and the most uncomfortable buffeting and vibration. My helmet vibrated so much that it was difficult to focus on the road. Unfortunately, I had to go well below the speed limit just to keep the noise and vibration down. This was not a good helmet for me.

Great, Great and Great
One of the more comfortable helmets I have worn ! Would recommend it for the all time rider or the part time rider.
