Bell Revolver EVO Templar Helmet
Great Helmet for the Price
This is a great helmet. I usually have issues getting a closed faced helmet that fits right. This one fits great. It is a little noisy, but has cut out for headphones so the noise isn't an issue. I wore this helmet on a recent ride and had it on for two hours without any issues. The inner sun shade fogs up a little but the outer shied stays fog free. The airflow is great also. The chin curtain is a great feature too.

Great Bang for the buck
This helmet is a great helmet under 200 dollars. Everything is really good it is a little loud would be my only complaint. I looked up best helmet for the money, this helmet kept showing up in the searches. I would buy it again.

Magnetic keep-Customer service
This helmet is a great value. I've used it the entire riding season this year and have just one minor complaint. The magnetic keep on the chin strap did not last very long. The magnet is kept in place by two small adhesive covers on either side. Here's the great part. After reading through some unrelated reviews of other helmets it occurred to me that I might be eligible for a claim. I contacted Revzilla via email and less than 24 hours later received a response from their team. The email was a personal response citing my particular item and concerns. The return was authorized and a link for a pre-paid return slip was sent in an additional email. I never expected such a quick and simple response. I have made a few purchases on Revzilla and can honestly say their customer service is excellent. As for the helmet, you can't beat it at this price point. The magnet issue is being addressed and the remainder of the helmet is trouble free. I purchased a darker shield, in retrospect I probably should have spent the extra cash on the photochromic shield and saved myself the trouble of having to swap out during night riding. The shield swap is incredibly easy with the quick releases. Removing the pads for the occasional wash was very simple. Field of view is wide and the modular design allows for greater cooling at stops. Great helmet. Great website.

Great value . Excellent features
Best helmet available for the price. Internal sun visor, however is not dark enough to be effective. Just go ahead and order the darker grey visor with the helmet and replace it. It will pay for itself as it will put the purchase slightly over $200 which gives you $10 of zilla cash. The helmet provides speaker pockets which make instillation of my Uclear system clean and simple. The check pads and liner are easily removed for cleaning. Only flaw is the weak design of the magnet attachment for holding the chin strap. It fell out the second time I used the helmet. Bell admitted a problem with the heat pressing used to attached the magnet and promised to send a fix with a couple weeks. They were willing to totally replace the helmet if I desired. I found it very simple to just glue the magnet back in place and have had no problems since, but will check out their fix when it arrives. Helmet also has great look.

Excellent Fit and Comfort
After trying 3 other helmets this summer I finally decided to try ordering this helmet without trying it on first from revzilla due to their exchange/return policy. I am extremely happy I did, this helmet is very comfortable, all the other helmets I couldn't wait to get home and get my helmet off, not the case with this helmet, it is very comfortable as well as I do not feel like I am suffocating in it. There is plenty of air flow and very little movement at all with the wind at higher speeds unlike other helmets I own. I will agree that this helmet allows for a little more road noise than others but that I believe is due to the amount of air it allows in which doesn't bother me since I enjoy the added air flow. I would recommend this helmet to anyone looking for a comfortable well fitting helmet for a decent price.

Great helmet, but LOUD
The helmet looks amazing, and I definitely feel safe wearing it. The vision goes extremely wide. I had no idea how much I was missing with my other helmets.
The latch in the modular piece is easy to open, but feels secure when closed. Sometimes I'm afraid it didn't latch correctly, but it is easy to check and make sure.
The only real setback on this helmet is the wind noise. It's noticeably loud at speeds as low as 35mph.
