RevZilla's Opinion of the The Bell Vortex Helmet

The Bell Vortex Helmet has grown to be one of the top selling and more ubiquitous ~$200 sport helmets in the RevZilla family. The light weight, Snell Rating and ability to use the Bell Photochromic shield allow the Bell Vortex Helmet to cover a lot of the bases the typical sport or track day rider is looking for in a reasonably priced helmet. Many times we see this type of functionality only available in helmets over the $300 mark. In the 3/4 or tuck position the Bell Vortex Helmet will provide a great solution in just about any spirited or sport riding scenario. If you find a graphic or color that suits your taste and you have an intermediate oval head shape, the Bell Vortex is a great option.

Like the grey version, but for the price this helmet was sick.
I bought this one first and ended up laying my bike down. It did it's job! I liked the helmet so the second time around I got the same one but in grey. I love my helmet

Decent helmet for the money
Bought this helmet for my wife to go on rides for me. The pictures do not do it justice, it's very "sparkly" in person. which means my 4yr old daughters LOVE it, and so does my wife.<br><br>Fit was good right off, and her only complaint was the cheek pads being tight (hmmmm, isn't that the same for everybody?), now she says they are perfect. Venting is great, and so is visability. When the vents are closed it makes it nice on a cold day. The speaker pockets worked great with the uClear UBC200, and when the visor is pulled down tight communication is great.<br><br>Which brings up my one issue with it, The shield is hard to pull all the way down. Once down the seal is good, and reduces road noise by a significant margin. Sure it's a little heavy, but it's also less than $200.<br><br>BTW, it says "Rides 2001 KTM 400 SXC" which I do off road. But I bought this helmet so we could go on rides on my 2012 Kawasaki Z1000.

Love it!
This is my first full face, I've been using 3/4 and 1/2 helmets until now. My head measured about 21.75, I tried the small but it was too loose, the XS fits perfectly. I have no pressure points (an issue i had in the past on my forehead with a Harley helmet). I've had it for a few weeks now, I've worn it for short commuting rides and on a recent 4 hour ride and it is perfectly comfortable. The shield is ridiculously easy to switch out, the vents work great- I can feel the air circulating through! I wore it 70's-90 degree weather and it is not too bad in the hot weather unless you are standing around. The cheekpads are a bit tight but I am not ready to say I need different ones because I know they will wear with time. I absolutely love it!

Bang for the Buck!
The helmet fits great! Very little buffeting. The ear holes on the side of the helmet create an extremely loud whistle. I am going to find something to fill these with and I think the helmet will exceptional.

Great Helmet
I haven't actually gotten to ride with this helmet yet but it is my first and it is gorgeous. The photos do not do it jusice. The helmet is a good fit although the cheek pads are a little tight... Either they will break in or I will buy a smaller set. All the vents and the little magnet on the chin strap are nice extras.

Compliments from everyone!
This is the finest woman's helmet I have ever laid eyes on. We can not get off the bike with out someone saying how great the helmet is! Feels great, definitely all day comfort! A little on the heavy side, but after a few trips I don't even notice the weight at all! Feels like it has a great amount of protection! Buy it now!

Beautiful Graphic & Great Features!
I LOVE this helmet. The photos do not do it justice! There is just the right amount of sparkle to the helmet graphics which cannot be seen in the photos. The sizing chart is "spot on"; airflow is great and it has a light comfortable fit. I recommend this helmet if you are looking for comfort, fit, style & extra features!!

Great helmet for my wife
This helmet for the price and snell certification is an awesome buy. Wasn't to sure about the graphics at first but when we got it we both agreed it looked great. The fit was perfect on my wife and she really digs the ventilation the helmet provides. She looks great in it. The only thing she was a bit disappointed with was it came with a clear lens and all the photos show the product with a dark lens. But overall she is very pleased.

Great product for the price
This is a great and versatile helmet. I purchased the Monarch in pink and the graphics are stunning, not at all cheesy. I changed out the cheekpads for better fit and added the Transitions shield. It's light and well vented. It does have some noise and on cold days, I have to crack the shield or it will fog, even with the breath box. Overall, a really nice product.

Love the paint scheme and based on your review of this Bell and the HJC 2015 FG-17 FLUTER WOMENS MOTORCYCLE HELMET. The review seems to indicate that the Bell is a better helmet.

Duh, just look at it... and I'm a believer in bell.
Todd J on Apr 19, 2015
I like the sleek contours of the helmet and the flip up visor. I wanted a helmet with a design, but not too ornate. I like that the liner is antimicrobial, detachable and washable. The anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield was a good selling point as well. If the helmet fits well with my glasses I'm thinking of getting the transition shield.
megan w on Apr 14, 2015
The colors and design caught my attention (for my wife), and the reviews and price sealed the deal.
ERIK F on Apr 12, 2015
Such cool graphics, unique and feminine.

My wife wanted a snell approved helmet, but didn't want to spend to much. So this was the best option out there and it was a great choice.
Oscar G on Sep 25, 2013
I like the emphasis on the features of this helmet and it's affordability of the under $200 range.

Anthony mentioned in the Monarch video that the pinstripes are reflective. Does he mean that it is actually reflective at night?
CH L on Oct 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: We had to take a look at it at night before answering. My husband doesn't think it is very "reflective". The pinstripes are small and the glitter seems more reflective, but not really at night. I wouldn't rely on that. It is a beautiful helmet and the fit is snug. Very comfortable. I love it!
Does this helmet come with dark smoke or clear shield?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Bell Vortex Monarch Helmet ships with a Clear faceshield only. Check out the Bell Vortex / Star / Revolver / RS1 Faceshield, Bell Vortex / Star / Revolver / RS1 Race Faceshield, & Bell Transitions SolFX Photochromic Face Shield for alternative options.
Hello - I never bought a helmet before. Do I measure my head around my eye brow line or above?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: All the information you need to determine your head measurement is provided in the product review videos. Be sure to check out the video titled "Bell Helmet Sizing Guide." Please feel free to contact us directly via e-mail: CS@RevZilla.com or by phone: 877-792-9455 for individual sizing recommendations.
Does this helmet easily accept a Sena SMH-10?
A shopper on Jan 26, 2013
BEST ANSWER: We have not run into any complications during installation for this helmet. The Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset is easily installed on the Bell Vortex. It will take approximately 10 minutes or so.
