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.

Pretty standard price, above average helmet A great helmet for the price. Kinda blown away this price point is double endorsed, which is why I took it in the first place. The graphics are awesome and I like the amalgamation of modern shape and aerodynamics with retro styling. Airflow is good enough to keep you sweating only moderately in hot days and none in temperate days. Cold days see the vents closed, which makes a bit of a differences, just enough to be appreciated. Vent controls are a bit difficult to manage with gloves on, but at least they work when you get a hold of them. Field of view is average, as is the weight and the strap. Liner is tight on the cheeks but is loosening up with time, as with most helmets. Remember, if you have a big head like me, go with the bigger helmet chassis, and order an XL or XXL (thinner liner).

Looking for a bad@$$ helmet? Look no furhter! This helmet is awesome. The graphics are unique and reminiscent of the WW2 flying tiger theme. The helmet fits comfortably with great airflow during the south Florida summers. It's a tad noisy but not a deal breaker by any means. I also equipped it with bluetooth speakers which have integrated pockets inside which made it a breeze! For a sub $200 helmet you receive a DOT and SNELL certified helmet so you're ready for the track. November 5, 2015
Sharp I was worried this was a gloss finish, but it's matte and it looks AWESOME. I was getting looks riding through the neighborhood, more so than usual. Fit is true to size but does feel a bit tight right now after only wearing it once but I'm confident it will break in like other reviewers have noted. Not as much flow as my Dual Sport helmet, but that's to be expected. As for noise, this thing is a dream compared to my Fly Trekker DS. Vision is also much better. The quick change visor feature is a nice perk too. October 23, 2015
Great helmet for the price Can't go wrong with this helmet. If you want a helmet that will look good and keep you safe, without having to take out a second mortgage on the house, than this helmet is for you. With that said, there are only two minor issues that I have come across that aren't really flaws but personal preference. First, wind noise is a little loud especially at highway speeds, but it is not exactly unbearable either. Second is that the air vents are pretty much unnoticeable when they are closed or open. Despite these two issues, I would definitely buy this helmet again. October 21, 2015
Best first or passenger helmet In my humble, beginner rider's opinion, Bell knocks this one out of the park with the Vortex. I looked around, and this guy seemed to be the "just right" in a sea of "I guess that's okay" and "I don't need all that yet." With the additional Snell rating, I feel very safe with my helmet and I'm sure it'll hold up in an emergency. As of now, I haven't had the need to test it out first hand *knock on wood.* As for the fitment, it is an intermediate-oval shape with replaceable cheek pads. I strongly recommend going to a local stealership to try on various helmet shapes before buying online. It'll save you a big headache. The features of this helmet are about as standard as they come, but that's not a bad thing. The vents vent and the shield clicks into place with assertiveness. The helmet does not have the shield lock you see on the RS-1 or Star, but that's to be expected as this is not really the helmet you'd want to take to the track on a regular basis. If this were everything about the helmet, it wouldn't stand out to me in the slightest. Luckily, that is not the case. What makes the Vortex stand out is not about this specific helmet at all. All of Bell's helmets of this style use the same face shield and super easy-to-use shield swap system. This makes so much of a difference because any additional shields purchased (like the Transitions shield) will fit into another Bell helmet. So when it comes time to upgrade to a Vortex to an RS-1 or Star, all of your shields come with you. October 5, 2015
Wife Approved Finally got my wife to agree to ride with me, and we needed to get some gear for her. Aside from a $500 Shoei she really liked while trying some on in a store (can't fault her for liking that one more!) this was a great second choice since she didn't want me spending that much on a helmet for her. Nevertheless, she really likes the matte black color, and had no complaints about weight, noise or anything else. Will probably pick up a bluetooth set for her helmet as well so we can talk while riding. Anything that gets your wife/girl to ride with you gets my recommendation. October 5, 2015
Loud, Excellent Protection. Crash Tested Helmet is loud, you will get a lot of wind noise on the highway. If your going out on long sustained high-speed rides be prepared to pop in some earplugs or lose some hearing. Ok, other than that its an excellent helmet. Airflow is great, I used it through a central Alabama summer and it was just fine. I have crash tested it and would say the protection is excellent. I high sided at around 60mph, give or take 10mph, and landed on my head and shoulder. No concussion and no doubt in my mind that the helmet worked. I ordered another one despite the noise for that reason alone. If you don't have a lot to spend on a helmet, want maximum protection, and can deal with the extra noise, this helmet is an excellent choice. September 28, 2015
I bought this helmet because it matched my car Perfectly The helmet is ok, you get what you pay for. It's a little loud but other than that quite solid. September 24, 2015

KEVIN L: I reviewed what seemed to be hundreds of helmets. The Bell Vortex seemed to be the best value based on its price, safety ratings and easily changed visor. In addition, the color scheme is complimentary to my 2009 Suzuki Boulevard, which was a positive. Oct 11, 2015
Christian L: Bell make high quality helmets. I love the retro style of this one. I also have a transition lens for it. This graphic is the reason I chose it over the Bell Qualifier DLX (with transition lens). My girlfriend owns and loves her Qualifier DLX. Sep 23, 2015
