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.


  • 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

Great helmet for the price I purchased this helmet about a little over a month ago. Great helmet for the sub-200 dollar price range. It's comfortable and flows a lot of air. The shield is easy to change out (even with gloves on). It comes with a chin guard (not sure what the official name of it is) which helps with keeping the wind and cold air out. My only complaint (and it's not a big one) is the noise. It's a pretty loud helmet. It's loud enough that I can't use my bluetooth on the freeway. Overall, if you're not concerned about the noise, it's a great helmet for the price. November 20, 2014
good helmet happy with helmet, plenty of airflow, just as described November 17, 2014
Great Backup or 1st "Snell Safety" Helmet The medium Vortex fits a little better than my large RS1. I bought this helmet as a backup/girlfriend helmet. The gloss white helps me mix it up if i get tired of my black helmet. The fit is right on. The inside is not as plush feeling as the RS1. And the noise is a bit louder say scale 1 - 10 this would be a 71/2 my RS1 would be a 5. My face shields are interchangeable from both helmets. The air system is not as good the RS1. I noticed I lightly sweat in it compared to not sweating at all in my RS1 with face shield down while moving. Also this helmet feels lighter than the RS1 probably due to shell size. At speeds higher than 60mph this helmet's aerodynamics are are not as good as the RS1 I give it a 2-1/2 out of 4 as the RS1 would be a 3-1/2. If I were to replace my year old RS1 i'd look into another RS1 though perhaps Medium next time... November 17, 2014
Great inexpensive helmet Helmet fits true to size, but I needed to go up one size on the cheek pads to give a more snug fit. I've got a little longer and slightly narrow face, so I needed a little more padding in the cheeks for the perfect fit. Changing out the visor is a breeze, and so are the removable liners (makes it very easy to clean). The fit is very comfortable and lightweight for long rides. I rode about 7 hours in a day and didn't have any complaints about being sore or feeling like it's too heavy. Ventilation seems to work rather well, and you definitely notice a difference in warmer months. Once I replaced the cheek pads (50mm to 55mm) the helmet fits nice and snug all the way around, and doesn't move around at all on the highway. Get yourself a smoked visor and you'll be set! Overall, it's a great helmet for what you pay, and little touches like the wind guard underneath your chin make a difference. November 17, 2014
Great bang for the buck This helmet is a super value for a DOT/Snell rated helmet. Airflow is good. Noise average. Good styling. The optional Transitions face shield makes this a versatile, quality choice. November 17, 2014
Honest Review Here's my two cents, for the doubtful customer. I bought this helmet in april of '14, and is my daily commuting helmet. Why did I buy this? Well, like any other rider, we're all biased when it comes to looks in a helmet. We all want a helmet that will look great. This one shows amazing graphics and be warned, compliments from random people will be a norm for this helmet. What made me buy this? 1. the looks, 2. the features. This helmet is Snell rated! This helmet has undergone strenuous testing that exceeds DOT and ECE, this is a track ready helmet. Even though I gave it five out of five stars, the only thing that has worn down, after heavy daily use, is the padding that makes the double d ring not chafe your jaw area. Dont get me wrong, the pad is still there, but the rubber strings holding the padding have become lose, it still hold well and this will not interfere with the safety of the helmet, and it is more of a nit pick, there are multiple fibers, and only a few have become lose. As I said this is an honest review, so that is the only thing that had caught my eye from this helmet. Besides that, the helmet is extremely solid and will do its job. The material used for the shell is light and you wont feel the helmet heavy after long commutes. The visibility in this helmet, is great, is has more than enough room for you to see left and right lanes and when you tilt your head you should have no problems on checking your blind side with minor movement. To summarize, if you want a snell rated helmet for this price with great looks and amazing features, get this. November 16, 2014
Noisy I like everything about this helmet, it is definitely looks great especially with the black visor. It is very comfortable and fits good (my head is a more oval shape). I got the large size and its just a bit big, but no issues. The major fault with this helmet was the noise level, above 100km/h the noise becomes unbearable! I recommend this product only for urban use where there are no high speeds. November 15, 2014
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
