Bell RS-1 Liner Helmet

The Bell RS-1 helmet bridges the gap between the Vortex and the top-of-the-line Bell Star. The Bell RS-1 Emblem Helmet features all the technicality of the RS-1 combined with visually striking Bell logo graphics. 

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.

Bell RS-1 Liner Helmet 4.7 5 188 188
excellent This helmet gives an awesome range of view and is light and very comfortable. I love all the features and this is the first helmet that the airflow is significant. I have never had a helmet that I ever had to shut the vents because there was never enough airflow. Very happy with this product overall!! September 28, 2015
Can't go wrong with this helmet I purchased this helmet to upgrade from a scorpion EXO 500, and I wasn't disappointed. It fits my head extremely well, and the air flow is outstanding. The helmet is a bit noisy, but tolerable even on longer rides. The only gripe I have is that the neck roll is not removable, which would be nice for cleaning purposes. All in all, it's a great helmet and I'd recommend it to anyone. September 20, 2015
Takes some stress out of high-speed riding I've only ever had Scorpion Helmets, 2 EXO-700's and more recently an EXO-R710. The R710 disappointed me to the extent that I started searching for a new helmet almost immediately after buying it. I commute 60mi round trip every day in LA traffic, and my budget was sub-$400. Had to be light and aerodynamic with a wide FOV. Tried a Shoei Qwest, but it just didn't jive with me for various reasons. Tried on a few HJC's and Arai's and nothing fit well. I'm right on the smaller side of medium, and have roughly an intermediate oval-y, kind of egg shaped head. I would absolutely never, ever, ever recommend buying a helmet without trying it on, but I took a giant risk and bought this one after reading rave reviews, since they did not have one in stock to try on. And oh man. It was a good decision. Field of view is exceptional. Best peripheral vision I've ever had on a helmet. Fit is race tight, but breaks in very quickly. Interior liner is smooth and soft, and the best part, totally removable and replaceable. After a couple days the lining broke in and now fits perfectly. I have a naked bike but there's little to no movement on my head even at 80mph+ (not that I blatantly disobey the speed limit THAT often >_>). Very confident it would stay firmly planted in the event of a crash. The weight is feather light. Perfectly distributed, much unlike my previous Scorpions which were very front heavy. What I noticed immediately is how quiet it was even with all of the vents open. The padding they use around the ears is an interesting material, almost bean-bag like, and it blocks wind and other noise beautifully. Between the light weight, wide FOV and the lack of noise, the first time I went out riding I actually forgot the helmet was there for a second. It's that comfortable. My only problem is that I can hardly hear my bike with it on, and my girlfriend says I'm not allowed to get an Akrapovic exhaust... yet. Recently I purchased the SOLFX transition face shield as well, and would give this combo the highest recommendation. Why on earth Bell doesn't bundle these with every helmet is beyond me. Probably out of courtesy to other helmet manufacturers, because if they did that they would be the official helmet of... everyone. I sincerely doubt I'll ever go back to having to swap shields. Obviously my glowing praise is due in no small part to the fact that my head happens to fit their design quite well. This will not be true for everyone. I would highly recommend going to your local stealer-ship (preferably one with the lowest Yelp ratings), try it on, then come back here and order it from Revzilla. August 24, 2015
great helmet this helmet fit perfectly and is comfortable for many hours of riding. I bought a dark visor as well and it takes only seconds to change from one to the other. I like the magnet on the chin strap. I live in a very hot climate and the helmet is perfect, it flows massive amounts of air, keeps your head from sweating even at extremely hot temperatures. wind noise with all the vents open at highway speeds gets to be a bit much but I ride a naked bike so no wind protection at all. I just wear earplugs and its fine. I would definitely recommend it. June 16, 2015
Returned for want of an eyewear notch; so sad. I ordered the white with black stripe version of the Bell RS-1 Liner Helmet. It is lovely to behold - I really like the design and the asymmetry - so nicely done! But I could not get my eyeglasses on, even with smaller cheek pads. Not my thin, titanium framed SiIhouettes. Not my straight-arm Costa del Mar shades. Forget about the Oakley Radars. I know that this is a personal thing and that other people have no trouble getting their glasses on - different head and face shapes. But, come on, Bell, all you need to do is make a notch in the cheek pads for glasses. Such a simple thing. I so wanted to keep this helmet; so disappointed. June 10, 2015
Good helmet, just two problems When I first got the helmet and tried it on, it was crushing my face at the cheeks so bad it was giving me a headache (I have a round face). I took the cheek pads out, and tried it back on. It fit at the dome of my head but not at the cheeks. I was really in love with the styling/paint scheme/safety features and didn't want to send it back without trying to fit smaller cheek pads. I purchased the 40mm and 35mm cheek pads. The 35mm cheek pads fit me perfectly (I also wear glasses when I ride). The other problem was the magnet fell off the strap my second ride out. I plan on sending my helmet back to Bell after this riding season for warranty repairs. Other then that, great helmet. June 6, 2015
Great Helmet for the Price My previous helmet was a Bell Vortex I got free from the dealer with my 2nd bike. I had used it for a few years, but I just got fed up with it and read good things about the RS-1. Noise/Fit: Wow, what a difference one model up makes. The Vortex was an "ear plugs in every ride" helmet because it was so loud. This helmet is quiet! I mean it's really quiet. Much quieter than any helmet I've used so far, quieter than the Shoei I used to use as well. The helmet is far lighter than the Vortex, the difference is very easy to feel in your hands and definitely when it's on your head. I ride a Ducati Monster 1200 so I have no wind protection, so these things have been a huge improvement in my life and are also very noticeable on the bike. Shield Portability: I used my transitions auto-smoking shield that I had purchased towards the end of my last helmets left on the new helmet and it popped right on, no problems. I love it as I never have to swap shields anymore or anything -- helmet, gear, and go! Fogging: I commute in all weather in Seattle so fogging is a real problem for me in the winter -- it was actually the last straw that made me buy a new helmet. This his helmet has the pop-up button (that also locks the shield down if so desired) so you get a small slit of air between the shield and the bottom. It works really well. The asymmetry of it popping only one side up angers my OCD, but I just try to avoid looking at it. My only complaints so far is that the cheek pads were a bit tight early on, so I had patterns in my cheek bones during break in for a couple weeks and airflow doesn't seem to be "great". It's not bad, I still gave it a 4/5, for flow, but I've had better. June 29, 2015
I survived This helmet saved my life last Sunday when a driver across the intersection made a left turn in front of me and hit me. I flew off my bike backwards and landed flat on my back and the back of my helmet slammed the pavement. I did have a concussion but no internal bleeding and I owe my life to this helmet. It looks good, feels comfortable, and most importantly, it does its job. It is worth every penny. June 24, 2015

Chris A asked: If I wear a Medium Shoei QWEST, which Size RS-1 would be best? Oct 16, 2014

Michael B: Chris,

Sorry, can't answer that directly. I did measure my head to be at 7 and 1/8 or just less than that. The M is working well for me, no buffeting up to 90 mph. The liner did not pack out too much either. So my recommendation is that if you do buy the helmet, and try it on, assume it will continue to fit as if out of the box.

The fit conforms a bit with time, but does not seems to pack out.

BTW I got the photochromic face shield and love it.

Mitchell A: I wore a medium in many other helmets bought the bell rs-1 and used the size chart it said I needed a medium as well it's a tight medium bit not overly tight a good snug fit for me. I would measure your head and follow the size chart for the helmet. Oct 16, 2014

GLENN R asked: 1. Does the RS-1 Liner come with eyeglass relief slots like the Arai Vector2?
2. How many shell sizes and which shell is used in the Medium?
Apr 1, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Naoki F: Answer : 1. Nope. I found that out after I purchased it. I wish there was one since I wear glasses.
2. I don't know. How can I tell? Where should I look?
Apr 11, 2014
Reply to Naoki Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
GLENN R: Thanks for the info Naoki. I went with my usual choice and bought an Arai Vector-2. I wish every retailer would post the amount shell sizes a helmet company makes for each model. If you are a Medium and they only make 2 sizes you could end up buying a lid made to fit an XLarge. Too big!
Cheers. Apr 15, 2014
Naoki F: Thanks for the tip, Glenn. I've never owned Arai but I bet it's a great helmet. I like my RS-1 so far. Other than not having eyeglass slots, I don't have any problem with it. It's a nice helmet, I should say. I picked medium and it fits perfect. Apr 16, 2014
Wilfred F: No, the RS-1 does not come with eyeglass relief slots, and i couldn't tell you how many shell sizes there are, I would guess 3 Apr 2, 2014
