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.

Great helmet for the price New rider and wanted a FF Dont know if I'll enjoy riding so didnt want to break the bank, but still wanted safety Have ridden 500 miles, and I love this helmet Great fit, I am a medium in hats, about 7 3/8, and this fit perfectly, has great vision too opted for the transition lens too and it was a great purchase as well slight heavier than the more expensive helmets ive tested. I just put on VH twin slash on my iron and the exhaust is loud. The helmet masks the sound, but not by much I would 100% recommend this to anyone as long as it fits your noggin And the RSD design is awesome! August 26, 2015
Awesome, but could be even better! The helmet is really great in every way except one - no easy way to route the speaker wires. The neck pad is non-removable and you can only bring the headset wires to the front to get them out of the helmet. My speakers didn't come with long enough cables so I had to make a small hole in the neck pad. Still don't know why to make space for speakers with no easy way to bring the wires out. Design is great, air flow is good, could be better, could be worse. Noise level - the same. Protection rocks. It's not only DOT approved, it's also SNELL rated, which means this helmet is good enough for a race track. Another problem is that it comes with clear visor. Could be a little tinted so you could ride on a sunny day towards the sun. Now with the clear visor it's a bit hard. I do know that they have a selection of visors including the chameleon one, but that costs extra $$. Would be great if default one was tinted. August 24, 2015
Recognizable name brand I bought the Bell helmet because I recognized the name from helmets I have had in the past. Love the look. Smooshes my jaw a little but I would rather have it fitted than loose, no impediment to vision. Added the dark smoke visor so that I don't have to fiddle with sunglasses. August 24, 2015
3 great reasons for this helmet 1st- who doesn't love the flying tigers from WW2 2nd- great review from revzilla influenced my buying decision, good features = great value for the money spent. 3rd- prehaps the greatest upgrade available is that you can purchase the transitions photo chromatic shield that darkens in sunlight and lightens when not in sunlight. This Helmet does double duty for me as a motorcycle helmet, and a motorsports helmet. Evey one comments on the excellent graphics on the helmet. If you want to have a helmet that is not like all the others this may be the helmet for you. August 17, 2015
Comfort and style A classic look and it feels great to wear after breaking it in. Mine is a just a tad to large on me, when on the highway the wind will lift up my helmet when looking to the side. Otherwise it fits great and I get enough air coming into the helmet. August 14, 2015
Awesome helmet! I ordered it on a Sunday and it arrived Wednesday! 3 days! August 10, 2015
good bell coloring looks toyish didnt have a old bell star sliver which was awesome maybe it can be painted August 10, 2015
Awesome helmet for the price I've only worn the helmet to my msf course on days that it was super hot, but as soon as we'd start moving I felt a pretty good airflow. I got the helmet in a small and it fits perfectly and is pretty comfortable. Also is a good price and got it very quickly. August 10, 2015

Todd J: Duh, just look at it... and I'm a believer in bell. Apr 19, 2015
megan w: 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. Apr 14, 2015

CH L asked: Anthony mentioned in the Monarch video that the pinstripes are reflective. Does he mean that it is actually reflective at night? Oct 17, 2013

Richard B: 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! Oct 21, 2013

Kirk P: I havn't checked the reflectivity of the helmet in the dark, but I believe that Anthony was referring to some glitter applied along the pin striping. Again, I am not sure about any reflectivity for safety's sake, but the helmet looks great! Oct 19, 2013

Reid H: It is not reflective at night. There's inlaid 'glitter' on either side of the white pinstripes, but they are definitely not reflective at night --I just tested it out in the garage with only a flashlight and nothing. By the way, it's my wife's helmet, kind of a cool touch perhaps, I guess it's a chick thing. Hope this helps. Oct 21, 2013
