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.

Bell Vortex Monarch Helmet 4.4 5 460 460
Had it for two years now Excellent helmet, a brand I can trust. Seriously, best protection your money can buy. I have the smoke visor on mine, black on black. Looks good ;) April 20, 2015
Good starting point I have used this helmet for about a year and it has not had any problems. I like the forehead and chin vents, but don't feel too much air from the top vents unless I am in the tuck position. The cracked position of the visor is great to. One downfall is the anti-fog system. Like any treated visor, it wears off and you need to reapply, but it was effective when new. I wish that the chin strap pads were removable to make cleaning easier, but its manageable. I ended up filling the speaker cut outs with cotton, if you don't the helmet is very boomy and isn't fun even with earplugs in. During head checks there isn't much air turbulence. I suggest if you are in-between sizes to size down as the shell/foam seems to break-in and relax a tad. April 18, 2015
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. April 16, 2015
Awesome helmet especially for the price! Most affordable DOT and SNELL certified helmet. Very comfortable with adequate venting. April 13, 2015
Awsome Helmet This my first helmet in US and I love it. It is sharp looking helmet and it looks good on me. At first it felt very tight and heavy but, after few times I got used it. It is a perfect fit and every thing is true per Tony's video. April 8, 2015
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 April 1, 2015
size matters This is the first helmet I have bought on line. Tried a few on locally to get a feel for size and discovered that this helmet should fit snug, I have been wearing a too largew of helmet prior and risked not beingf fully protected in the event of a need. March 30, 2015
Sporty looking helmet This helmet is simply amazing ! The matte black gives this lid such a sporty look. It is so comfortable. I can't wait to buy one of the color visors. Revzilla has the best prices and their return policy/exchange is excellent. I definitely recommend this helmet. March 30, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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

Chi-Ho 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!

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
