Bell Vortex Band Helmet

The Bell Vortex is every bit the helmet you’d expect of the Star’s little brother. Developed in Bell’s state-of-the-art Santa Cruz, Calif. design center, the Vortex borrows heavily from the Star, using its Velocity Flow Ventilation with FlowAdjust for amazing ventilation and temperature control, as well as ClickRelease— the reigning world champ in shield ease-of-use. The lightweight polycarbonate shell is molded into a stable, wind cutting shape, and comfort is in no short supply with contoured cheek pads and a plush removable comfort liner. Finish it off with a noise reducing wind collar and integrated speaker pockets and you have a complete package at a killer price.

  • Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell

Bell Vortex Band Helmet 4.6 5 26 26
Less than I thought... I'm barely a 2x helmet size when you measure my head. So I ordered the 2x here. It's the smallest 2x I've ever tried on. Entry is tough, partly because it's just tight, and partly because the hard backing on the back of the cheek pads stick out into the opening. They sort of scrape along your head as you put it on. Once it's on, it's very small still. If I open my mouth my chin hits the helmet, and my cheeks are squeezed comically together. I ordered the slimmer cheek pads from another site (Revzilla didn't stock them) and they weren't slim enough to help. So I paid a seamstress friend to open the cheek pads, take out 75% of the foam, and sew them back up. Now I can live with the fit. It's also very noisy. At highway speeds I can't hear my bike at all, just wind. Very underwhelmed. June 30, 2015
Love the style, and the price This is my second helmet. My first and only other was a Scorpion 400 which I had for about 7-8 years. The Bell Vortex is incredibly lighter than the Scorpion, although that could be from the age and use...I never washed the inside....The fit is true. I love the visibility, but that could just be having a visor that isn't scratched up. It's DOT and Snell, it's comfortable and I like the style. For under $200, I think this is a great deal and I would highly recommend this helmet. June 29, 2015
likin' it so far Well ventilated, not too heavy on the cheeks. Good enough padding. really good in the wind, almost no buffeting. the visor mechanism is super simple to switch out. what i like the most is the paint scheme. the banded stripes and the metal flake across the orange part really set the lid off.

Great Looking Helmet The color is obviously the main draw here apart from being a Bell and reaching a Snell safety rating. About as comfortable as you would expect a helmet under $200 to cost. A bit loud but overall a great helmet. May 25, 2015
Good buy, but loud Nice helmet, especially the price with regard to the snell cert. My main issue is wind noise. This is a loud helmet. I Don't have all the much to compare to, but get some earplugs. Overall good value with a cool colorway and affardable face shields and easy installation. May 4, 2015
Runs smaller than Star I wear a Bell Star, size L, as my primary helmet and love it. I ordered size L in the comparably affordable Vortex and it's borderline too small. The shell itself seems overall about the same, but definitely more snug fit and harder getting on and off. This has partly to do with the difference in pad shapes between the two, but the opening in the Vortex is just smaller. The shields are compatible. I'll add more to the review after some wear time, but wanted to advise Bell loyalists right away about the fit. April 6, 2015
Great Helmet For people who are concerned about the shell size, I uploaded a photo comparing it to the Shark s700. I have the size medium and Its not that big. January 16, 2015
Super Bang for the Buck! Great helmet for the under $200 range. True to size, I ordered a larger and the fit is great (I also have quite a large Irish melon). The air flow and front shield are top notch. Over all quality of the helmet is the best in it's class for the under $200 mark. Perfect if you're looking for a second helmet or need a regulation lid for the track. Bell keeps me coming back for more. Plus the super rad Atari color theme always works for me! November 20, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Bradley M: Price...Snell approved...style...My $150 Scorpion has lasted me 7+ years and I am long over due for a new helmet. I don't ride far often...small commute, and small, couple hour weekend jaunts. I don't need an Aria for that. Jun 9, 2015
