Bell Rogue Helmet
If simply riding a motorcycle is not intimidating enough, bust out your inner Bane by donning the Bell Rogue. The Rogue has the look of a half-helmet yet gives you the added protection and comfort of a ¾, and the adjustable and removable muzzle, not only puts the fear of god into cagers, but protects your face from road debris and weather. The lightweight composite shell and speaker compatible comfortable liner provide superior riding comfort and convenience. The Rogue gives riders all the features of similar touring helmets while retaining an edgy and stylish look.
Please Note: The "muzzle" on the Bell Rogue is purely for comfort and is not a protective element. This helmet should provide a similar level of protection that an open face helmet would provide.

At first glance, the Rogue is a groundbreaking new helmet from Bell. It’s taking the best of what we’ve seen in their half-helmet line, and it’s adding a nice iterative badass flavor to it. There’s really no other way to describe it. If we look at it from an application standpoint, it’s going to cater to the rider that wants the airflow and the feel of an open-face helmet with some more protection. Think of it as a bandana on steroids. The big thing that jumps right out at you is this extendable and removable muzzle that we have right here on the front. We’re going to get to that in a second.
If we look at it, 4 colors available: Army green, matte black, gloss black, and then almost a gunmetal green that they call Gunny. I’d love to hear your gut reaction to the Bell Rogue Helmet. Leave it for us on our YouTube Channel or you can always click right here and subscribe and stay up-to-date with all the latest gear reviews we’re constantly rolling out.
A quick note on fit: It is going to fit slightly differently. The guts of this helmet, the half-helmet element of it is going to fit much more like an RS1. They’re staying with that fit pattern; it’s an intermediate oval head shape. There really shouldn’t be any surprises. The nice part is you do have some of the feel and connectivity of what you’d see from the ¾ helmet, even though ultimately, the protective elements are really encompassed within this half-helmet shape. Then with the front, it is completely adjustable. It moves in and out. You can see it here on the side. I press that button and I slide it in and out. It’s the . . . I always call it Ron Popeil effect; the set it and forget it on the side.
Remember, if you’re not sure about sizing: Extra-small through 2-extra-large; 3 EPS sizes, 3 shell sizes. You should be able to get it right. We ship for free exchange and no restock fee if you need to send it back to us. Take in mind that we’re going to make it pretty painless if you’re really concerned about buying and fit over the internet.
Back to the actual Rogue itself; back to some of the nuances, the nitty-gritty of the helmet. I’ve showed the guts of the fully removable liner, but the way that it touches you and interfaces with you is actually quite unique. You have this half-helmet design, which is completely different from Bell. It’s a different shape than we’ve seen. It’s going to look great on a cruiser. You guys are thinking, “It’s great. It’s a Harley-Davidson. It’s a bad-ass helmet.” Honestly, I’ve seen this on Monster; looks phenomenal. Any naked bike, city riders, somebody that want something different, likes the airflow of an open face-helmet but maybe wants a little bit more of a protective aspect. Its, again, not protective in your full-faced helmet regard of things, but it’s really protective from the standpoint of bugs, road grime, rocks, Mother Nature. Again, it’s that injection-molded TPR that sits on the front in the muzzle.
We do have what they call the shroud, which again, is that same injected molded TPR that connects to the helmet with a proprietary material. On the interior, you have your EPS in the top, but it actually extends slightly below that. It comes down to about here in the helmet. It’s still rated as a DOT motorcycle helmet, but again, it’s DOT as an open-face or a half-helmet, and you’re getting just some of the benefits, comfort, and support of that EPS slightly extending. Again looking at it, it’s just a nice, added benefit.
Jumping back into the muzzle, you’ve heard me talk about. A few things about the muzzle you need to know, besides the fact that it looks Bane from Batman, which we absolutely love. It’s using a technology called Fidlock, which is really an easy way to make it so this muzzle, once locked in, is non-removable. You have a magnetic connection point, and then towards the back, you’re going to have this self-adjusting ratchet that you can pull it down. Some guys that have been wearing this like to have it close to their face. Other folks like it with a little bit more room between your mouth and nose. Again, it’s personal preference. To remove it, you’re actually going to slide it up, and you can see how I pulled that out. This is a newer technology, Fidlock, from Germany. We haven’t seen it in a lot of places, but again, it makes it really easy because once you slide it out, you just pop it back in. There’s no sliding it back in. It just pops back in. Again it’s self-finding; you can do it in a pinch.
Looking at the muzzle and the breath box itself, again, really gnarly. They went for aggressive. It has some airflow vents on the front. As we turn it backwards, you’re going to see that for winter riding, it does come with a removable 3D form breath box. This is fleece-lined. It’s a breath guard. It’s going to block some of that wind if it’s really, really cold out, saving you from having to wear an extra bandana. Again, when we remove it, now we’re in summer weight riding mode, and you can see that it still has a nice microfleece in case it’s touching your nose or touching your chin, depending on how you’re wearing it. Now we do have cutouts as well that are going to flow air. I can chuck that bad boy back on it, and you can see how that works.
No surprises as we move down from it; double D-ring construction. It’s the same microfiber we see from Bell. One of the things that they’ve done that’s really cool, in my opinion, is wearing this helmet, you could really wear it two ways. You can wear it with goggles. A lot of guys wear a pair of riding goggles that might have a strap to go around the outside. They’ve left you enough room to be able to wear that goggle with the strap, no problem. What they’ve also done is they’ve trimmed the density and they’ve put in our cheek pad towards the top that’s going to be really accommodating for a pair of sunglasses. If you’re wearing a pair of gas can or oil cans from Oakley. . . I actually don’t know if there’s an oil can; I might have just made that up. The gas cans from Oakley that have the really wide plastic frame, you might have a little bit of a tough time. If you’re wearing a normal pair of sunglasses, a normal pair of eyeglasses, you should be able to get them in no problem. Again, Bell took into account the fact that different riders are going to have different tastes and different styles, and you might want to integrate differently.
As we start to rotate the Rogue helmet up as well, you’re going to see that this TPR, which is, again, this shroud, comes all the way around the front. Again remember, it connects with a proprietary, they call it this ring connection, that allows Bell to seamlessly integrate the shroud into the EPS into the outer shell of the helmet so that it’s not going to ever pull apart. Again, it becomes one seamless piece. One of the things that I really like about the helmet is that they’re not using your standard polycarb. It’s not an entry-level motorcycle helmet. Using fiberglass, Kevlar, and resin, it’s really a composite matrix in the shell, so that allows them to make it a bit more lightweight, and it’s going to be stronger than your typical polycarb helmet.
If we go for the guts, you can see that I can pull out my cheek pads that do have speaker pockets. Again, I’m curious when this thing hits the market en masse, how people are going to feel about putting a Bluetooth communicator on there and how that’s going to work. Right now, I think the jury’s still out, but you can check out the comments on the video or on our page, and we’ll see how people fare with it. If we look at the neck roll, it comes all the way down. Here in the back, we have the neck roll that also is removable. Again, this is going to give you some nice connectivity and a nice point of comfort around the backside of your head, around the base of your skull. That’s going to snap in with two snaps, and it actually looks really well-styled because you see these cutaways, and you can see that mesh that sits behind it, again, adds to the finishing on it. Again, that pulls out. When you come in here, you can see how far the EPS comes down. Remember, that EPS is going to slightly extend underneath this ridge by about an 1”, 1½”, but it’s giving you a little bit more room to stay covered, especially in the unfortunate event of a get-off.
If we look at the main comfort liner, fully removable. There are no vents on the Bell Rogue. They went streamlined. They didn’t want to compromise look, but it is an open-face helmet so it’s going to flow a ton of air from the front anyway. What they’ve done, as I open it up, is you’re going to see that we have big cutaways. We have a different area of mesh that’s going to be sweat wicking in the back. Remember, this is fully removable, it’s fully washable. It’s going to hold up over the long run, and you can see the way the EPS is done. Basic EPS without any cutaways, but again, it’s meant to be comfort. We’re calling this an intermediate oval head-shape that’s going to fit along those same lines as the RS1.
A final note on fit and fine-tuning: Keep in mind, on the side you’re going to have these straps. Sizes up to large come standard length; XL and 2X come with a longer length. You can buy the other length straps on Revzilla.com. If you’re in a large helmet and you want a little bit more clearance in the front even though there’s a good amount of adjustability out of the box, you can always get the other length size strap. I think on a final note, the last thing you have to remember is as this is a new helmet in new waters as RevZilla.com from Bell, the worst thing you can probably do is pigeonhole it. Whether you are a sport bike rider, a naked bike rider on a Ducati Monster or something like that, a cruising rider, or a Harley-Davidson rider; if you’re used to wearing a half-helmet, if you want something that gives you a little bit more coverage which really has a new bad-ass look, the Bell Rogue should be something that you’re evaluating. Don’t put yourself in the box of saying, “The Bell Rogue is only a naked bike helmet. This is only a cruiser helmet.”
