Bell Vortex Greaser Helmet

The new 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, antibacterial/antimicrobial interior comfort liner
  • 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

I am very happy with the Revolver. It gives me the modular functionality with the DOT certification and fits like a glove. The snap down sun shade does its job perfectly. Just have to wear my contacts as opposed to my glasses.

I bought the Bell Revolver helmet 1 month ago, and it has been worth every penny and more. Being modular, it is a bit noisier than I'd prefer, but it's only bothersome for the first few minutes of riding. The benefit of the modular design is that it does help make the helmet easy to get on and off, and it's very nice to be able to take a quick drink without having to remove the helmet. The Revolver's styling is sleek and modern - it looks like a much more expensive helmet. I originally had the Rally (black with white stripes down the center), but the mechanism that allows the flip down sun shield broke on my first ride. It was replaced by Revzilla under warranty (thanks Chris!) and has performed beautifully! All in all, I'm very impressed, and will likely buy another Revolver, unless I can afford the Bell Star. Bell is coming on strong!

This is a great helmet at a really good price. I wanted a modular helmet because I don't like taking my eyeglasses off and on while riding. Helmet goes on without having to take my glasses off. Mission accomplished. The 'pocket' flip down tinted glasses visor is really cool too.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've had this helmet since 04/2011 when I started riding. I selected it because of the price and because it carries a Snell 2010 rating; I think HJC is the only other company (at the time at least) to offer a Snell 2010 rated helmet at a cheaper price. I tried on a couple of HJC helmets and didn't care for them. It fits my head perfectly in a size Medium with pressure evenly around my head. My head shape is more of the oval/oblong shape than round. The cheek pads were firm but have broken in nicely but are still snug. Airflow is not too bad but as most reviews on the web have stated, it is loud! When I first started learning to ride I didn't want to wear earplugs for fear of blocking out important noises. Now that I know better, I have to say that earplugs are a must with this helmet. Anything above 50mph is unbearable for me. The vents are easy to locate and operate while riding and wearing gloves. The chin and brow vents flow great, the top vents don't seem to flow as well. I keep a shaved head and I can barely feel air on my scalp when at highway speeds. The actual inlet holes are not as large as the vent openings are, they're about a 1/3 that size - just a little oval recessed in the vent opening.
The quick release system for the visor makes it a snap to swap visors for the most part. It takes an extra few seconds when swapping on my smoked visor because it's dark enough that it's harder to line up the visor into the helmet unless you're operating in bright light. The clear visor fogs up a bit when stopped at traffic lights in cooler weather. Cracking the visor clears it up right away as soon as I start rolling. Another little feature I thought was cool is there's a magnet sewn into the chin strap and a tab on the D-ring so that when you loop it through the D-ring and snug it down, you can affix the strap to the D-ring to keep the strap from flapping around. I hadn't seen this feature on other helmets I'd looked at so if this is a common feature then it's news to me. Problem is that the fabric stitched over that magnet started peeling off on both sides so I had to glue it down to keep the magnet from falling off.
Fit and finish seems pretty good. Definitely not up there with Arai or Shoei, but then again the Vortex is sub-$200 so it's to be expected. The paint on the plastic vents has chipped as has the flat black finish which sucks, not sure if it's from rocks hitting it or just negligence on my part in handling/storing it. Oddly enough, the plastic parts are red underneath the black paint. Another issue is, and I'm not sure if it's the visors or the helmet, but the seal around the visor is not remotely air tight; with all vents closed I still feel a moderate breeze blowing in my face.
Overall, I'd still recommend this helmet, but if it's in your budget for a higher end helmet, definitely go for it.

Helmet had small flaw in clear coat. Quieter then I though it would be after reading reviews. Fits a little strange on the back of the head. D ring strap needs to be a 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch longer so you can cinch it up when wearing Balaclava. And I guess I won't find a face shield that does not fog at 30*. All in all good helmet for $109.00. Feels solid and I am sure it will do the job.The internal sun visor functions fine even with glasses but hangs out a bit when retracted fully. If you have a longer head you should pass on it as my chin is about a 1/4 inch from the chin bar.
