Bell Vortex Damage 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.

Features:

  • 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
  • Padded chin strap with D-ring closure
  • 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

Excellent entry helmet I originally got this helmet specifically because I wanted the transitions visor. (haven't gotten it yet) But it turns out that it's a good helmet for entry level cyclists like me. This is my first helmet so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I can tell you what I noticed as first timer. It fits a bit tight to start out, but after wearing it for a few weeks it breaks in to about perfect. I think it's kinda loud not from outside noise, but from wind noise. I've read that you can remedy this by covering the holes near the ears, haven't tried it yet. Its not so loud that it's distracting or uncomfortable, just louder then I thought. The visor that comes with the helmet seems to fog up easily. The weight is appropriate for helmets in it's class, I researched that this helmet weighs the same exact amount as the icon airframe construct, which I was also looking at. But ended up getting this because it's cheaper and just as light. October 22, 2014
No mistake Great looking helmet, fit is true and the airflow is amazing especially that brow vent. It's very snug at first but it contours so well. Its a little on the bulky looking side but that's to be expected with the lower cost helmets. Face shield removal is crazy quick and easy and it has great protection. Wind noise is a little high at 120+ but very bearable. October 13, 2014
Awesome!... but WOW it's LOUD! So first off my head circumference measurement is 23 1/2 inches. According to the size chart 1/4in too big for a L and 1/8in too small for an XL. So I ordered both and the L fit perfectly, it's very comfortable, sent the XL back of course. Secondly, for $180 this thing looks fantastic, heck even if it was $400 it would look fantastic. This helmet is very high quality, the shield mechanism as mentioned in the video is phenomenal; makes you wonder why other helmets have such complicated systems. Ventilation is another major plus, flows lots of air. The only bad thing that comes to mind is that it is ridiculously loud, like borderline unbearably loud. **WITHOUT EAR PLUGS** However if you wear earplugs, like I do, you'll be fine. And finally, bottom line if you want a comfortable, quality built, SAFE (Don't forget this thing is Snell 2010), good looking helmet for a GREAT price... don't hesitate buy it, buy it now. Also, pick up the transitions shield it works really well. October 10, 2014
Comfortable fit for a round headed individual like myself Comfortable, fairly lightweight, good visibility and love the flying tiger military styling. Very pleased with this purchase October 7, 2014
Great Helmet, but it is Loud The Bell has all the features you are looking for, great ventilation, awesome shield system, best safety ratings. I like the fit, and look of the helmet. It seems fairly large, not sure how many shell sizes Bell is using. My main con is it's loud, my wife's HJC cost less, is much quieter, and a more compact helmet shape for the same head size. I still like the Bell's shield and look better, but wish it wasn't as noisy. October 6, 2014
Love it! Great helmet for sub-$200. Good airflow and great graphics. Easily removable liner and shield for cleaning / replacement. Cheek pads were a little snug on arrival, and I considered ordering replacement from Bell, but decided to keep the originals and after 3 mos / 3000 miles they are perfect. Highly recommend. October 6, 2014
Quite satisfied I'm very happy with this helmet - for the price, you can't beat the features. Pro - good fit. I was on the line between L and XL - I went with XL and it fits fine. I like the styling and the pad design. Vision is great. Con - as noted in other reviews, the wind noise is quite loud, especially from the vents on top. Also, the vent above the face-shield blows directly on my forehead - so much I have to close it down a bit. The other surprise is that the helmet itself is very large - I've always been able to keep 2 helmets in my top-box, but with the Vortex I can only fit 1. Overall, these are minor complaints, and I'm quite satisfied with the helmet. October 6, 2014
Can't beat the price! With such a low price tag, I was able to get this helmet AND a transitional face shield! Plus, the helmet is very stable at speed...even when I turn my head to check my blind spot. The visibility is great and the fit is very comfortable. September 29, 2014
