Bell Vortex Flack 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

Awesome!! Use caulk and plug the ear hole vents and its a night and day helmet! Super quiet after doing that April 7, 2014
This is a good helmet for the price A vent easily broke off the back of the helmet from falling off a chair. Otherwise it has been a good helmet. March 31, 2014
Great helmet, low price Got this helmet with the transitions visor, it is worth it..fits snuggly compared to my old EXO1000 and the transitions is a great feature. March 10, 2014
Perfect design The Bell Vortex Flack Helmet is perfect. The weight is light. I recommend this helmet! March 5, 2014
Great features, fit a little off. Excellent value. Out of the box, the Vortex looked like a helmet costing much more. The build quality and finish were excellent, and the visor system is really easy to operate. Venting was easy to locate while riding, and easily operable with gloves on. The visor locked in tight and provided a nice wide view. The only issues I had were wind noise and fit. I usually am very snug inside a medium helmet, but this one ran a tad large on me and there was an uncomfortable spot at the top of my head above my hairline. I would probably be ok going with a small in this line. I'm not sure if the fit caused the excess wind noise, but I'm guessing it might have. The venting is superb and I never got overheated while riding. Overall, for a sub $200 helmet, it is a really good value, but I would be sure your head size is appropriate. January 27, 2014
Love it As others have said mine didn't not come with the magnet d ring would have been awesome i find my self always struggling the secure the snap but that's ok the helmet is so awesome. never fogged up on me great airflow on hot days for what i paid and what it is no one believes me when i tell them what i paid for this helmet! Snell and Dot approved as well cant go wrong with this one! January 16, 2014
Decent not an expert on helmets yet, this ones gotten the job done decently so far. It is loud indeed. I ride a naked bike so this helmet takes most of the wind, chin strap about chokes me at highway speeds. And if I do head checks going about over 75 the visor cracks open ........sometimes pretty far...sometimes about all the way, that's pretty annoying. fogs easily. January 7, 2014
Excelente casco - Great helmet It is a very nice helmet, the size was just right as it showed in the chart, even the fit is tight I do not get any spots that hurt at all after one hour riding. It is a bit noisy at 100 km/h as it said by other people. I just bought it before going to the US for work and brought it to Argentina in the airplane. Un casco muy lindo, el tamaño fue tal cual lo que figura en el chart the tamaños. Aunque es apretado, no tiene ningún punto que apriete y duela luego de andar una hora. Es un poco ruidoso a 100 km/h, tal cual comenta el resto de la gente. Lo compré antes de viajar a USA por trabajo y me lo traje a Argentina. January 4, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi, I'm sure you get this question a lot so I'm sorry for not being original. I just purchased a GSXR 750 and am looking for a new helmet which is under $200, preferably under $150 though. Some of the helmets I was looking at were the Bell Vortex and the Scorpion exo series. Which helmet do you think is the best bang for the buck for around/under $150? Nov 3, 2013

Klayton L: I have 2 exo-700s (one for more than 6 years) and 1 vortex. I like them all so its up to your personal taste. The exos have a more snug fit and are a significantly quieter ride, but the vortex is a good bit lighter and does better at not fogging in cold weather. If you can, go somewhere local and try one of each on and see how you like the fit of each, since its different. I too ride a GSXR 750, and Ive spent entire days on it with both helmet models. Ears were ringing on the day I wore the vortex and did highway speeds for 5 hours. Both are great helmet choices depending on exactly what youre looking for. Some Exo 700s are still to be found on clearance, but sadly they were discontinued.. there is a newer version though, too. I bought my second 700 and my Vortex at the same time a year ago. Hope it helps. Nov 5, 2013

Steve W: I've had three helmets now the most expensive being the least desierable.I bought the bell vortex and used it all last summer and believe it to be the best bang for the buck.It's a little noisy but much better than my modular,i think the fit is very good and the graphics are really good.I hope this helps.
