Bell RS-1 Helmet - Solid Colors

The all-new Bell RS-1 Solid Helmet bridges the gap between the top-of-the-line Bell Star and the value-minded Vortex with an amazing blend of mid-line price and high-end performance. Starting with a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite shell, the RS-1 brings it with Bell’s vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system providing cool comfort, a super stable aerodynamic profile keeping the helmet still at speed, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swaps…not to mention an amazing variety of tint and coating choices. The Bell RS-1 Helmet should be a game changer in the mid-high end helmet assortment. The RS-1 Helmet will prove its worth on track and street alike.

Contour Cut Cheekpads and a plush, removable, washable liner cradle the head in comfort while Bell’s exclusive Magnafusion magnetic strap keeper makes flapping strap ends a thing of the past. All told, it’s one great helmet at a modest price. Need help with the sizing? Watch our sizing video or give our Gear Geeks a call!

Bell RS-1 Helmet - Solid 4.8 5 136 136
great helmet This was a step up from my AGV K3, which I wore for years. This helmet is so comfortable I could take a nap in it. The airflow is the best I've ever seen on a full face helmet, but it's still a full face helmet. April 7, 2014
Fantastic mid-range helmet I haven't worn a Bell Star to compare the higher end but the mid-level RS-1 definitely has fit, quality and features that make it feel very worth the difference from an entry-level helmet. The visor quick-change mechanism works great yet doesn't feel fragile as it does with some other manufacturers. I really like the visor "crack" option for additional venting and the 3 different individually controlled sets of vents work fantastically. Wind noise is significantly lower than my last helmet from HJC. Fit is exactly as it lists in the review video; slightly more aggressive than an entry-level helmet but the fit is great at a bit of a aggressive rounded oval. Shoe helmets always felt tight in the wrong places to me and developed pressure points over time. No such feeling with this at all. I have done half day rides so far and have no discomfort at all from weight, wind noise or fit. You get what you pay for! March 24, 2014
Great helmet and looks mean. I have been riding for years. I have had HJC and various Shoei helmets.They have plenty of miles on them and it was definitely time to replace them. Needed a new angry looking helmet to go with the new VMAX. My style of riding is aggressive. Folks love the style of the helmet. Fits a bit large, so instead of a large I exchanged down to a medium. Wind noise is average and the helmet is much lighter than my older helmets. Should be great on longer rides. Function well at high speeds. Shiny black finish does finger print up very easily. Most definitely add the Photochromatic shield. Works as advertised. Great helmet. Would get a 5, but could be a hair quieter. March 18, 2014
Oh ho yes Way back in August I bought my self the Bell RS-1. After noticing how much riding I actually do I decided that it would make for a good investment. Before i bought the helmet i was of the thinking that no one would ever need to pay more for a helmet… well lets just say i was wrong. So let's start at the top. Bang for the buck: Well this helmet is more then two times more expensive then my AGV K3 and my first impressions are that it’s worth every penny more in price. Once you actually get a chance to spend time with one of these higher quality helmets the little details really start to add up quickly. Things like the liner, visor tension points and improved ventilation make upgrading to the helmet one of those points where theres just no going back. It’s only up from here :-) Style: In my past posts I would consider my self a sport style rider so I personally love aggressive but restrained design. Studying art in college has prepared me to navigate a world of design and unfortunately most sport motorcycle design is crazy and over the top. Not Bell though with the RS-1 they totally nailed this. The helmets profile from nearly every angle drips with subtle aggression. The position of the air vents, spoiler and it’s overall wind swept design is one that (much like the beautifully designed Ferrari F40) will hold its age for years. Oh and in matte black there’s no contest. ;-) Comfort: I have an intermediate oval head so fit tends to be a little more straight forward. The physical fit is excellent with no annoying pressure points. The liner really comes into its own here. Unlike my old helmet witch could start to feel itchy and annoying after a long ride this helmet feels so good on my face. During a long ride I tend to (hand on heart) totally forget I’m wearing it. Protection & Durability: This helmet has a tri-weave shell and is DOT and Snell 2010 rated so it’s crazy safe. The helmet has held up quite well over the past six months. I've put over 3,000 miles on it and it still looks and feels great. Unfortunately there is one side effect of buying a matte finished helmet and that is they scratch like theres no tomorrow. The thing fell off my bed and hit the radiator on the way down putting a nice scoff on the side. :-( Thankfully i was able to cover it with a well placed one inch “remember 9/11” sticker :-D. Air Flow: Personally I'd like a little more air flow but wile riding this helmet totally delivers on that. It’s not just the amount of air that this thing flows it’s the way it flows it. In comparison to my K3 witch would vent air directly into my mouth the RS-1 vents it to the side of my cheeks witch feels amazing. The visor has a perfect tension point for venting extra air for the pesky times where you want to do an “air flush”. My favorite though when it’s really hot are the eye brow vents. When you feel that cool air passing across your forehead it's total bliss. In the north east where it get sticky and gross I give this two sweaty thumbs up :-) Features: The real features of this helmet come in some less obvious places. First theres the locking and crack mechanism on the clutch side witch has been incredibly helpful. My favorite though is the ability to use the Photochromic shield hand on heart it's just awesome. Oh and the magnetic strap is totally fantastic. Another can’t go back feature Fit: I measured my head and came in just under the large. So I stepped up to the large and found it fit's almost perfectly. Next bell though I may go down to the Medium. Noise Level: this helmet was not designed to be quiet and it makes no concessions about that. Weight: This helmet is actually quite light. Like I said at times I totally forget I’ve got it on. Shape: like I said I'm an intermediate oval so perhaps my feedback here is pretty worthless. I left the slider right in the middle. Vision: Compared to my K3 i think the RS-1 has slightly wider vision. Overall experience has been really good. My only gripe is wile in some more sporting positions on the bike I personally found vertical vision to be a little restricted but maybe that has more to do with my hight rather then the helmet. All in all I love the RS-1. Its been pretty much perfect across the board. Its comfortable, safe and cool. But if I’m honest what makes it so good is that you forget its there and that is the best feature of all. Extremely happy with it March 10, 2014
Great Helmet I've had this helmet for a couple of months now and I absolutely love it. It has made me a fan of Bell helmets. The matte black finish is simple yet beautiful. The helmet was a bit tight at the beginning as most helmets are, but it fits like a glove before too long. It's ventilation is as good as they say if not better. Love the magnet strap hold because the plastic clip-ons always break. Thankfully I haven't had a chance to experience it's performance in a crash, but I'm sure the Snell rated rs-1 will do its job if and when the time comes. December 2, 2013
Great helmet! This is a really great helmet. It's incredibly comfortable and I could easily wear it all day. It doesn't weigh a lot and I really don't notice it on my head at all, which I think is something you should want out of a helmet. It's really quiet as well. I do wear earplugs if I'll be going on the highway or anything for an extended period of time, but even without them on it isn't too loud. I did get the transition shield, which is a little expensive but makes this helmet so much better! I really recommend that as well. The air flows really well in this helmet, and it doesn't ever fog up on me. It does fit a little small, but not enough to size down. Once you break it in it shouldn't be a problem. I'd really recommend this helmet. November 11, 2013
Perfect choice Used to use a half helmet w/ ear flaps. I moved to a bigger, faster, dual sport bike and decided to move up to a full helmet. Read a lot of reviews, got some advice from a local motorcycle dealer, bought this one. It is a GREAT helmet. Much better visibility than I expected. Perfect ventilation (I use the slightly cracked feature all the time.) Matte black finish looks great. I could not have made a better choice. October 14, 2013
Good Helmet, Decent Price I was looking to just get a new version of my existing helmet until I found out that the new one is not SNELL approved! So the Great Gear Geek helped me pick out a new helmet that was safe but not too expensive. The Bell RS-1 fit the bill. It is a bit snug, but not tight, but that is good for safety and is already forming to my head and cheeks. I wear glasses and I can put them on fairly easily, so that is a plus. The airflow is very good and it got tested just after I bought the helmet when I rode in rain for about an hour and a half and it did not fog up; I was pleasantly surprised. I just hope I never have to need it's safety features. August 15, 2013

Garet M: I watched their videos, sold me on it. Apr 10, 2014
Earl W: In 1970 Bought my first Bell a Star (racing snowmobiles back then), it was costly but then, "If ya got a $50. head ya buy a $50. helmet", the bucket saved me much grief and aggravation back then. Fast forward to 2012, a return to M/C after a 40 yr hiatus...Bell was once again my choice just not requiring the competition unit this time around. Fit great with diff. Cheek pads, Revzilla's pricing,bucks, processing, freight policy, and Bells performance made me 1 happy camper again. Mar 18, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
QBall: The standard clear faceshield comes with this lid. The photochromic model shown in some of the photos, comparable to Transitions sunglasses, is another $95. The combination is still a better price than comparable hats from Arai or Shoei, and you don't get that visual jitter that can happen with more than one visor (even sunglasses and a visor) in front of your eyes while astride a vibrating machine. If you went with another Bell full-face helmet in the future, you can still use the same light-sensitive face shield . . . Name me another brand that will accommodate that! Feb 6, 2012

ddd269: They all come with the standard clear shield. All my helmets, including the Bell Star helmet came with clear shield.

You have to buy the tinted or mirrored kind if you wish. I bought the light gold iridium and looks really good. Light enough to wear at night.

A shopper asked: Any thoughts on how this helmet would perform as a touring/sport touring lid?? Mostly riding in an upright position. GS, V Strom as examples Sep 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David W: I don't have a full upright bike - but I used my RS-1 for an entire ride from NYC to LA (long inefficient northern route), over about 21 days of riding on an F800ST (slightly forward at 6'). I thought the helmet was impressive for such a distance - and had solid airflow which was better the more upright I was. I would suggest this helmet to anyone assuming it fits well. I also used the transitions shield - which honestly is the best upgrade available on a motorcycle. Sep 13, 2013

William S: I will highly recommend this helmet for any use. I ride a Triumph speed triple and a T595 and the helmet was great (for a year) until I crashed it at the track. I landed on my head going about 60 mph and broke my collar bone but didn't have the slightest headache. The helmet is quiet, great for everyday riding and track work and proved itself safe. I also think the transitions shield is one of the best purchases I have made for riding. Sep 13, 2013
Reply to William Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Christopher C: The helmet has decent venting and is fairly quiet. I have found it very comfortable for extended wearing. I also swapped in the Transitions SolFX photochromic face shield on mine and it works better than I could have hoped. Last month I rode a 900 mile trip and the helmet performed flawlessly on my bike with a similar riding position (2006 Ducati S2R 1000). Sep 14, 2013
Reply to Christopher Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Steve M: I ride upright all the time on my bike. The helmet has good venting for summer riding but I have not used it below 50 degrees yet. It is a little noisy wind wise but not intolerable. It is water tight as I found out when I rode in rain for an hour and a half without any leaks. I like the helmet and would recommend it. Sep 13, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Walter F.: I would not recommend washing the helmet liner in any washing machine. I would recommend washing the liner by hand in a sink using a mild detergent like dish soap or Woolite. I have done this myself for several helmets I have had. The liner takes little time to wash and best if air dried. Jan 31, 2012
Reply to Walter F. Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
ClassicZXR: Just noticed the date on this, did you put them in the washing machine? How did it turn out? I just dunk them in cold water, squeeze out the excess and let them dry. Can take almost a day to dry out depending how much you soak them. May 24, 2012
Reply to ClassicZXR Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kan P: The liners in the RS-1 are removable (all except the neck roll) and can be machine washed. Hang drying it would be best, I usually just lay it out for a couple hours and it's ready to go back into the helmet. Sep 13, 2012
Reply to Kan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)

A shopper asked: I have read that the Bell RS-1 seal around the eye port does not completely seal the gap between the faceshield and the helmet allowing water to leak inside the helmet, has Bell fixed this issue? Apr 9, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stuart K.: I cant say if they have or not, but I just adjusted the shield holders on the side and mine seals up just fine. Just loosen the screws a bit, put the shield back on and adjust it to where it seals, but you can still open it. Then just lift the shield carefully and tighten the screws.

I love my RS-1 and use it on the street all the time. Never used it on the track though as I prefer my AGV helmets, but after my little adjustment I have not had water issues.

A shopper asked: Looking to replace my X11 this year. Does the RS1 fit like the X11? Keep in mind the RF1100 and Quest fit rounder heads than the X11 does. Will the RS1 work in an upright position like on my R1200RT? My X11 works just fine on my R1200RT when I put the windscreen down. I just am uncomfortable with the idea the vortex will be heavy and will catch the wind when I turn my head. Is this heavy like a Scorpion helmet or lighter more like the X11? Thanks Jun 6, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
ZJDMM1: I replaced my Scorpion EXO-700 with the Bell RS-1. To me, the RS-1 feels MUCH lighter than my old EXO-700 (a helmet I really liked). I have a medium oval head and the RS-1 fits me perfectly. Haven't tried a Bell Star but the Vortex seemed to feel more "neutral shaped" to me and the RS-1 feels like it favors the "oval shaped" heads. (or at least it favors mine). I ride sport, sport-tour, and a naked road-bike. I have experienced little, if any, buffeting no matter what bike I've been riding. Even freeway speed "head-checks" with no windscreen were no problem whatsoever. This helmet seems to slice right through the air. Jul 5, 2011
Reply to ZJDMM1 Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
QBall: I've worn both, and though cannot say I've ridden with the X11, it seems to be just as light a helmet. Your RT has the same riding position as my Triumph Trophy though, and I have no problems with this RS-1. In fact, it really seems to slice nicely through the wind no matter how my head is oriented. A choice I would recommend. . . . Good luck. Feb 6, 2012

Chris K: The RS-1 is best compared with the Shoei RF-1100 in fit and function. It has an intermediate oval headshape and is lighter than the Vortex, but not as light as the Bell Star. It should accommodate you fine in an upright riding position. Jun 7, 2011

Charles Gabriel C asked: Is it possible that the Matte Black RS-1 have a larger shell size than the solid Black shell RS-1, both having XS size?
Have they changed the shell sizing since it was first released?

I'm asking because I have used an RS-1 when I was in a riding school back in Feb 2012, and I remember the solid black rs-1 being smaller than the matte black RS-1 I just ordered.

I have a small frame, 5'6, 135 lb, 30 inch waist 34" chest. What other helmets are there that are small in shell size less than $400? I'm thinking Bell Vortex? DEC 07, 2013

Phil C: Gloss black just looks smaller the shells are the same so focus on weight and fit. The helmets come with different face pads. Not to sound like an elitist but don't pay less for less. The lighter weight and better tech with this helmet will pay for itself in spades should you ever need it. Hope this helps. Good luck with school and in LIFE! Dec 10, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Kan P: I would go with the smaller size if you are between size. After break-in the fit will be more loose and comfortable. And you don't want the helmet to be loose for safety purposes.

I have a Bell RS-1 and I was between a size Medium and Large, but got a large. It fit great at first but after break-in, it became somewhat loose and didn't like it. From then on I've gotten the Bell Star, the Shoei RF-1100, and the Shark Speed-R in Medium sizes and they fit great.
