Bell RS-1 Emblem Helmet 4.8 5 146 146
Not bad. I recently got this helmet to upgrade my older Bell Vortex. I had an older vortex with the magnetic strap holder like in this helmet. One thing that I love. But since the bell Vortex no longer has it. I had no choice up to upgrade. I did notice the weight difference. Lighter then the Vortex. Sizing.. The vortex is slighting larger then the rs-1. But I was able to get the same sized helmet. It is hard to tell if the top vents or brow vents are open or closed. Not much air flow. The Bell vortex does have much more airflow on the top of the helmet. But with the chin vents. The rs-1 flow tons more air. One thing I had issue with the rs-1. was when riding, didn't matter if all the vents were closed or open. I would get a draft of air right into my eyes. Causing them to dry out. I did some research and found a people that had the same issues, but found no solutions. I found when riding if I placed my hand under my chin curtain, the draft would go away. So I made a windproof chin curtain that is also much longer then the original one. That fixed the issue. I now like this helmet much better. I attached a picture. Over all its the best choice helmet for me. As i wanted a Snell approved helmet that I can still use my transition shield with. January 5, 2015
Great helmet Inrecently purchased this helemt as a replacement for my old helmet. I purchased because of reviews and styling. Plus it is just a bell, so you know you are getting quality goods. This helmet is light on your head and has a wide view. Super comfortable! Very impressed with the rs-1 helmet! December 22, 2014
Exceptional value. I imported the helmet to South Africa and waited 2 months thanks to a postal strike. It was so worth the wait! A little tight but I just know the fit will be perfect once its settled in. Width of vision is the best I've ever had and build quality exceptional. The ventilation system works perfect and easy as sin to operate. It isn't the quietest helmet but that is probably all negative I can note. I knew I could expect a great product from Bell! December 8, 2014
A good helmet A true-to-sizing fit; really nice features, and a pretty cool design. Airflow is a little less than I expected, but not bad. The bag that comes with is pretty nice, too. All-in-all, a very good value for what seems a very good helmet. January 14, 2015
Great Helmet and I hear great things from my track brothers Great value and Bell is no longer the cheap (price and quality) option of old. Many a racer trusts their head-guts to them know and I am very happy with mine so far. January 14, 2015
excellent helmet This is a replacement for an RS-1 I crashed in. It did an excellent job of protecting me. I would recommend one to anyone. Top notch helmet. January 6, 2015
This is the cooolest "ugly" helmet!!! Really like this helmet. Airflow is good, lots of vents. Only complaint is foggy visor. Helmet came with foggy visor, think it's from whatever coating they put on it at the factory, but never fully rubbed in. I've cleaned it with a clean cloth, no chemicals, and even at 40F it fogs at every single stop light. The visor lock is pretty cool, but I've found it a bit hard to work with gloves on and I don't always get it locked, which makes me worry that it'll flip open when I'm not expecting it, so I leave it closed and it fogs. Would be awesome if they made the visor with pin-lock attachments instead of tear-off attachments that I'll never use. Super awesome helmet, thumbs down on the visor, should be okay once the temperature comes up in a few months, but until then I'll ride with my other helmet that has a pin-lock visor. December 30, 2014
Great Buy Thought the helmet was a great deal. I had to reorder down a size since Bells run larger. Exchange was super easy and fast. Once the new helmet broke in it fit great. It's much quieter than my previous Icon Armada. Ventilation work pretty good for hot and cold rides. In the high 40's, I stop using my balaclava mask since it has a chin skirt and the vents don't leak. I highly recommend going with a photochromic lens. It's worth every penny. December 29, 2014

Patrick W: I was between this and the Bell Revolver Evo. Matter of fact, I ordered the Revolver, received it in the mail, and put it on before I realized I had ordered it one size too big. Of course, I had to send it back, but when I replaced my order, I bought the RS-1 instead because I wanted a helmet that would be more waterproof than what reviewers were saying the Revolver provided. The last thing I want is to be distracted riding in stressful weather conditions by springing a leak inside my helmet. Jan 5, 2014

A shopper asked: I used Shoe RF 1100, size small. I would like to buy Bell RS 1. Does size small fits me or should I try medium? Dec 21, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (2) No (0)
Paul K: You should probably go with a Med, but make sure to double check the fit size of both brands to confirm if this is correct. For me, size M in Shoei R1100 worked but was slightly too snug to be correct and the L was too big. The L in Bell RS-1 fit perfect. The fit size guides in Revzilla are pretty accurate and the brands have different ranges for S-M-L. My 58.5 cm head was at the top end of M for Shoei but in the zone for a L for Bell. Best fit ever for me, Dec 24, 2013

Greg W: You need to try one on and see what fits. IMO it has a slightly narrower fit than the R1100, which is good if you have an oval head. Jul 8, 2014

A shopper asked: Is there a difference In the outer shell between a small and medium? It looks like I might be a med when usually a small but I don't want to look like a bobble head if the actual outside gets larger too! I'm a small sized female so find some look wierd on me . Thanks! Jan 13, 2014

Keith P: Hi. I bought an RS-1 in early December '13, and while I really like it, I think that the overall external size is kinda large. I can't remember for certain if I got a Medium or Small, but I think it's a Medium. (I'm away from home presently.).

If that's a deal-breaker for you, it is what it is. The feel, the quiet, the external aerodynamics, the quality, & the airflow when you ask for it are all exactly what Inwas looking for though. I've got a more narrow head & it felt SO much better than some of those round or "slightly oval" helmets I tried on. Good luck!

M R A: I am a short statue man (5'3") and wear a size MD. Without my Firstgear Hi-Vis Kilimanjaro Jacket, I do have a bit of a bobble head look but any full face would be the same. A jack makes my head looks normal for being on top of a yellow fireplug. When putting on the helmet the first few times, it can be a bit of a push to get it in place. A good snug but comfortable fit is what you want. It will become easy put on the helmet before you know it. Jan 16, 2014

Diego O: I ordered a Small first, and the inner padding fitted to tight for me... So I returned it and ordered a Medium which fitted perfectly. The outer shell is the same actually, cause I ordered a Dark Silver Irodium Face Shield and I thought I had to return it in order to get a new one that would fit the Medium helmet, but they told me it was the same size. So don't worry, you won't look like bubble head! (; hope you find this useful! Jan 16, 2014

Anthony S: I'm not sure about the outer shell size but I own the medium version and compared to other helmets I've tried it's not bulky and feels really light. The sizing is snug but comfortable and seems to match their charts pretty well. Hopefully that helps you out a bit in your choice. Jan 16, 2014

Jeff R: The helmet seems a little big on to me but honestly, the shape and graphics are so awesome that I've only ever heard compliments. People in cars have rolled down their window at stoplights to comment on the helmet. I love it and highly recommend it! Jun 4, 2014

Wil A: There is no difference in the size of the shell. The padding on the inside is the ply did fence between a small and a medium. This is an awsome helmet and the best deal on the market. The RS-1 is great for the street and track. Jan 18, 2014

jose b: I Dont know about the outer shell but, it runs like a race helmet so its very snug in the inside. You can also change the inside cheek pads to make it tighter or loser. Jan 16, 2014

Paul K: No, XS to MED and L to 2XL are the shell sizes. I do not know a lot about other brands but I am guessing that unless you buy some really cheap molded helmet or really expensive one they might have more than 2 shell sizes. Revzilla seems to know a lot call and ask them. I will tell you this is an awesome helmet and looks great. I don't think it looks as big as some but still big as my 6 year old and 15year old have close to the same circumference head obviously the 6 year olds head is not as big and she does look like a little martian. They have a small bell vortex similar shape to the rs1 less money. I was considering the Shark helmets, never owned one but it does look smaller to me in pictures. Still only 2 shell sizes I think. I would ask Revzilla. I read your comment again and unless you have an unusually big head or lots of hair it seems a medium would be too big. A helmet should be pretty tight especially in the beginning but they loosen up quite a bit. Go by the size chart but all brands fit different for different kinds of heads too. Hope this helps.

Earl F: Actually there are 3 outside shell sizes. xs-s,m-l,xl-2xl
You can see these sizes on the RS-1 cheek pad order page
Because each shell only needs fit a range of 2 sizes, you shouldn't have a bobble head
Please try to get the correct size.
You can also check the Shoe RF-1200 that has 4 shell sizes: xs-s,m,l,xl-2xl Feb 8, 2014
A S asked: My head is right at 22 - 3/4 which shows to be a Medium on the chart. Will this fit true or should I go large? Jun 3, 2014

Earl W: I purchased 2 RS-1 helmets. 1 for me & 1 for my soon to be wife.
I was just over the line into the 2X size but went with the XL instead, reason tight is better than loose should use is called for. Hers was right on the line as well and we went with the XS
Okay, there are a few things to consider, the cheek pads most likely will be an issue so with that in mind order the extra sizes...reason being they're cheap enough and should you require the next size either up or down you'll have em, won't have to wait and won't have to pay shipping either if purchased w/helmet.
Do the following only after you have decided the size you got is the one for you cause there won't be any returning it should you do the next step.
This last step you may have to do to get the perfect fit: pressure form the liner to relieve uncomfortable pressure points. (I used a strong large tablespoon and worked it back and forth with thumb pressure on spoon to mold to fit comfortably where needed. "DO NOT USE HEAT" it will damage liner). I used optional cheek pads for both my XL and my fiancé's XS and used the pressure forming technique on both helmets as well.
They require effort to get on and remove but once on they fit like a leather glove.
BTW, we use HD communication speakers (Velcro holds speakers in place with no discomfort) and mic boom fits w/no issue and mic has plenty of room for positioning to taste.

George M: A S, My head is also 22 3/4 , oval to long oval. I went with the large and it fits as if it was custom made. Very happy with the helmet. Good luck.
