Bell RS1 RSD Flash Bronze Helmet

The Bell RS-1 RSD Flash Bronze Helmet is a limited edition helmet designed by Roland Sands. The RS-1 bridges the gap between the top-of-the-line Bell Star and the value-minded Vortex with an amazing blend of price and performance. Starting with a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite shell, the RS-1 brings with it Bell’s vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system providing cool comfort, a super stable aerodynamic profile keeping the helmet still at speed, and the versatile ClickRelease shield system for fast, easy shield swaps, not to mention an amazing variety of tint and coating choices. Contour Cut Cheekpads and a plush, X-Static XT2 silver-lined anti-microbial liner cradle the head in comfort while Bell’s exclusive Magnefusion magnetic strap keeper makes flapping strap ends a thing of the past. All said, it’s one great helmet at a modest price.

Great Helmet! This being my first helmet, I didn't know what to expect. I knew I wanted to have at least a SNELL rated helmet as well something stylish that matches my bikes flare. I chose this helmet because of the value I was getting for all the features. This helmet fit me better than the Shoei RF1200 and it feels extremely comfortable. The road noise is manageable and the air flow makes riding in the heat enjoyable. I would buy this product again. July 1, 2014
Awesome helmet! I did not buy this from Revzilla but at my local dealer after test riding three helmets. I tried more expensive Arai and Shoei. The Arai was noisy but the Shoei was o.k. The Bell however was like I was not even wearing a helmet. Very wide view, nice air flow, and very stable in wind. I have a long oval I guess and the helmet fit me well. True to size. I also ordered the chromatic shield which is really nice. (I was not happy with the new HJC models. They seem to have gone to making a cheaper, noisier helmet.) Worth every penny but I would suggest trying them on and riding first as every persons head is different. June 18, 2014
Seems like a decent helmet. This is my first motorcycle helmet that I've purchased and so far, so good. Its got lots of vents for airflow so your brain won't cook when its hot and the visor offers extremely wide visibility. So much so, that it's hard to see in your peripheral vision. The only gripe I've had with this helmet so far is that the visor lock occasionally comes loose and rattles once you get up to speed, so you have to tighten it up with a Torx screw, which is a little disappointing when you pay this much for a helmet. Also the matt color shows scratches very easily, so take care when handling it to keep your helmet looking great. Other than that, I'm really happy with this helmet. June 11, 2014
Excellent helmet with good ventilation This is an excellent helmet with excellent ventalation. It is well made with a good visor mechanism. Fit is vest for an oval head. My only complaint is I cracked a plastic vent on my almost new helmet when I dropped it fell off my seat to the ground. Unlike other manufacturers, Bell does not supply replacement parts like vent inserts. I would consider other manufacturers if this is a concern. June 6, 2014
Awesome helmet for its price tag. The Bell RS-1 is one of my favorite helmets. It has a decent ventilation system that allows for a great amount of air flow. The helmet is solid and has a nice finish it also gives you a wider field of view when compared to other helmets. May 23, 2014
One of the best helmets for a super sport I purchased this helmet when I still had my Yamaha R6 and I must say it is perfect for a super sport. I loved everything about the helmet. It is light, comfortable, offers a great field of view, and it is Snell 2010 certified. I recently purchased a 2013 Kawasaki Z1000 which I've already put almost 1000 miles on all while wearing an RS-1. Once on a naked bike with an upright seating position I noticed it was dramatically louder and experienced some buffeting from air flowing under the chin bar. My ears sometimes ring after a fair amount of time on the interstate. The combination of all the above is making me look in the direction of an Arai Defiant. If I was still on my R6 I would still be in love with this helmet. Don't hesitate if you are on a super sport. I also purchased the photo-chromatic lens for it which is very nice as well. On some really bright sunny days I could use a little more tint. May 20, 2014
New favorite helmet Bought this and the Transitions shield on sale mostly because my Scorpion EXO 700 was still doing a good job and I didn't know what I was missing. Still love the EXO 700 but the RS-1 is a definite step up. I always wear ear plugs so loudness isn't an issue but when all the vents are open I can feel the difference. It flows more air than I ever imagined. The fit & finish is excellent. A week after receiving it I took off on a 2500 mile ride with no issues and super comfort. May 12, 2014
Comfortable and well ventilated Sizing was a little small based on chart, exchanged helmet for next size up with no issues. Much better than any other helmet that I have had in the past. Fit, Stability and ventilation are great. Perfect helmet for naked sport bike! May 5, 2014

Michael T asked: Is the shell and EPS liner the same in the Small and Medium sized helmet? I would like to buy one Small helmet to fit two passengers (since I can only carry one at a time) and would just buy the Medium liner and cheek pads to make it work as a Medium when needed. Mar 26, 2014

So we know the RS 1, leap year ahead of something like the Vortex and the
Bell Line, but it's the baby brother of the Star. Certainly holds it's own
as an intermediate oval-head shape Snell 2010 Helmet that's sport and race
bred. Watch the full detailed breakdown video that we have.

Now, moving into the Flash Bronze graphic, again it's something different,
Bell continues to push the envelope, and what I think I love most about
this helmet is it's another Roland Sands design. If you don't know who
Roland Sands is, custom bike builder, custom part designer. Go check out
Roland Sands' amazing stuff that he produces. A phenomenal designer within
the moto-sphere.

If we look at the design, matte black chassis, we have a light gradient on
this dot graphic on the side and then what you have is this big over-
arching decal which really pops against the matte black. And what you have
is multiple colors that are kind of pulled almost in running-board fashion
all the way around with pin stripes, but then there's a reflectivity to the
entire thing. And you can see it as we bring it all the way to the back,
you're going to see the Roland Sands graphic. It comes across, it sweeps
with the Bell logo that's also reflective. You can see that metal flaking
within the paint, and if you run your finger all the way across the decal,
you can almost feel a slight raise to it.

Let me show you the top here as well. Top is going to be beautiful, it
comes back, it's very clean and classic within the RS 1 line. I would love
to hear your gut reaction to it. Leave us a note on our YouTube channel or
