Bell Vortex Flying Tiger Helmet
I would tell people to buy this
Bang for the buck this is a great helmet. Air flow is good same as fit. And the looks are great being military.

Style and Sleek
I just got this helmet and it fits very well. I like the design and the looks of it. I've gotten a lot of complements on the helmet already and I can't help but to enjoy it. The vision on it is very wide and it is a bit loud on the wind. I love this thing and would recommend it to anyone.

Awesome helmet for the price!
This helmet is an amazing deal. With all the vents open there is some incredible airflow keeping you very cool. That also comes with some helmet noise which is on the louder side. The chin guard helps with that somewhat, but it's still noisy. The design is amazing and the pictures don't do it justice! I wish the auto-tinting faceshield wasn't so much or I would pick it up in an instant. All in all, this is a great helmet at an awesome price.

This helmet has great features
Just used it for the first time today and love all the features. Great airflow and fits good not quite as comfortable as my Arai but love the shield and how easy it was to put on the transitions shield I ordered and love the transitions shield!!!

This is a great buy and could only really be improved by being quieter. Putting tape over the internal vents behind the ears helps, but it would be quieter if the external ports were covered (I just don't want to put tape over those for aesthetic reasons).
If you ride with ear buds, it will be fine, as far as loudness is concerned. There certainly are louder helmets out there.

Great helmet for the price
I bought this helmet 6 months ago and love it. It fits snug but comfortable. Airflow is really good with 4 inlet valves that you can close and 2 exhaust valves in the back that help force air through the helmet that you can't close. The only drawback I have found is when I put an intercom system in it. There is great space for the speakers for the ears but no real room for a microphone. I would recommend this helmet to anyone

Great Features For Great Price
This is my first helmet and I am a beginner rider, so my review is based solely on my experience with this helmet and not comparing it to any other products. The helmet seems to run slightly big, once you get the right size it is a nice snug fit as it should be. The quick-release visor mechanism is awesome; however, since I upgraded to the optional transition clear/tinted visor, I will not be needing to swap out clear and tinted visors on a regular basis. The airflow is awesome, and quite necessary given my heated location in Florida. Many people on here are complaining about the noise levels inside the helmet - yes there is quite a bit of wind noise at 55-75 MPH...but I would rather have the noise and the airflow, than no noise and no airflow! I'm not trying to blast around on my motorcycle while having business meeting on my phone through a Bluetooth speaker. I'm out there to ride and enjoy the sport of it. Thankfully I have not had to test out the safety features of this helmet, so I will just have to trust that the manufacturer specs are what they say they are! Overall I am more than satisfied with the features of this helmet for the price, and can't beat the free design work on the "Flying Tiger" version I got, its definitely unique.

Tis a great helmet!
This helmet is definitely the most BA eye-catching helmet I think a person can buy for around $200. For me, I was in between a small and medium (I think 23 1/4") and then decided upon much research with customer service and the BELL company to go with the medium. The helmet fit like a glove and very comfortable. I have not rode with it....welcome to wisconsin because of that....but I look forward to trying it out as soon as I can. I will give more feedback later!
