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.


  • Velocity Flow Ventilation system with FlowAdjust for maximum stability and temperature control with minimal noise and buffeting
  • Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell
  • Contour cheek pads (by means of stacked foam, not hand cut)
  • Removable and washable interior for maximum comfort
  • Padded Wind Collar to drastically reduce wind/road noise
  • Integrated speaker pockets for audio speakers
  • ClickRelease for the fastest, easiest, tool-free shield swaps ever
  • NutraFog II superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield
  • Five year warranty
  • Snell M2010 and DOT Certified

Note: Helmet shown with optional tinted shield. Clear shield included.

Note: Helmet may come with either the magnetic strap keeper or standard chin strap snaps

Bell Vortex Band Helmet 4.8 5 11 11
Great helmet for the price. Pictures don't do this helmet justice. The paint used for the stripes has a pearlescent effect and it has a nice layer of clear coat. The helmet has a quality feel. The liner is comfortable the cheek pads were a little tight at first but it broke in after a few hours and it is really comfortable to wear. It gets a little hot but not terrible. For the price this is an awesome deal and it feels like you get more than you pay for. July 7, 2014
Light well ventilated and looks great. I didn't realize in the photos online but the styling lines on the paint have sparkles in them; it looks great but it is worth mentioning in case others did not notice. Besides the sparkles the helmet is as advertised. It's light well ventilated and looks great. June 17, 2014
Got it today. Just got my Black with Orange, and i love it already. Changing shields is so easy it was hard.. I wear a 2XL Moto 4 and this Vortex fits exactly the same, i took a gamble on that. Only regret was not ordering the dark shield over the light smoke one. Bell makes good stuff. June 4, 2014
Great helmet for the price. Noise is a bit louder compared to my Bell 500, but fit, comfort and airflow are much better. June 3, 2014
Great Helmet for a Great Price Bottom line, if you're looking for a quality helmet for under $200, get this. The graphics are really clean, airflow thru the helmet is amazing. It's light, vision is good, DOT and Snell approved. Can't ask for much more....the retro graphics are sick. Extremely happy with this purchase, My girlfriend just ordered a solid matte black for herself. Also got a dark smoke shield with it, changing out the lenses on this helmet was the easiest and quickest i've ever done on one. As far as fit, I measured my head and was within the XS size, and it fits perfectly. June 1, 2014
This helmet is a steal for the price The finish of this helmet rivals much more expensive helmets. The interior material and comfort is fantastic. The visor never fogs. It doesn't flow as much air as some of my other helmets, and is a bit heavy, but honestly having a SNELL approved helmet for $180 is such a good deal I don't even care. I mostly just use it for racing NSR50's but there are times when I pull this helmet out to wear on the street just because I like it so much. Plus, it looks effing dope, and I get compliments on the retro style everywhere. Inevitably, some old dude will say "I had a bell helmet just like that back in the 70s while I was riding my old bonnie!" and I high five them. April 14, 2014
Clean, no nonsense helmet This is actually my second Bell Vortex helmet. I was forced to retire my last one, because my friends used my helmets at a party last summer to ram heads. I like Bell because they're a dedicated helmet company. Their helmets come across as simple, yet stylish. The Vortex in particular exudes high build quality. It's also extremely comfortable and looks slick. When you wear this helmet, you get this satisfied feeling that all your money went towards building a solid helmet. As opposed to some other helmets, which seem like they pour too much of your money into purely cosmetic things that end up creating too much clutter. This "band" design in particular is beautiful. Extremely simple and clean. I love the way it looks in person. I bought the White/Blue one. April 14, 2014
nice helmet This is my first full face helmet, switching from vintage open face. I'm right on the edge of medium/large so I got the medium. Nice and snug. Cheek pads are a bit intrusive, but I assume they will wear in. Not too heavy. Decent airflow. And those lines, so cool. April 7, 2014
