Bell Vortex Monarch Helmet

Developed in Bell’s state-of-the-art Santa Cruz, California design center, the  Bell Vortex borrows heavily from its big brother the Star. With a solid compliment of features the Bell Vortex is a great choice as a primary helmet for everyday use that can also transition to the occasional track day. A killer price rounds out the package and gives you a big bang for your buck.

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
  • Clear NutraFog II™ superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield. Dark tint and other shields available for purchase separately
  • Five year warranty
  • Weight: 1600g
  • Certification: Snell M2010, DOT

Note: Helmet may come with either the magnetic strap keeper or standard chin strap snaps

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.

Beautiful helmet I bought this helmet for my girlfriend. She was not really into riding nor wearing helmets until we went into a store and saw this helmet and she immediately fell in love with it. I haven't tried it myself since I'm a size large and she is an XS but for what I'm able to see and feel inside it, it really is a high quality, very comfortable helmet. She has no complaints about it and it has beautiful finish. The colors are amazing and the finish is very nice. It's a true size fit, all you have to do is follow the chart. It comes with a clear shield. It has the spaces inside to install a Bluetooth headset and speakers. Highly recommended for girls, very cool helmet. January 21, 2014
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 September 23, 2013
Great Look with Great Features This helmet not only has a great look at no extra cost than a solid, it has great features. The easiest windscreen change, lots of air, SNELL rated, magnet clip and the guts are easy to remove and install quickly to clean. Great helmet that I would buy again! September 4, 2013
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 helmet at a wonderful value! I wanted something pretty yet bad@ss so this helmet in the tonal version fit the bill perfectly without breaking the bank. I went on a 2 hour ride this weekend in 90 degree heat and the airflow was perfect. I was never hot in the helmet. It is a little tight, but that is with any helmet that fits properly. I should mention I am an XS in most brands, but a Small in Bell. July 15, 2013
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. July 1, 2013
Beautiful helmet The helmet design is great, the cheek pad are tight at first but after a while it's alright, the air flow is great. I brought the helmet for the transition face shield and I really love it. Ride 1010 Ninja 650R June 24, 2013
Reliable company name with a delicate design All you expect out of a Bell helmet with the great design for women wanting a delicate touch. May 17, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Oscar G: 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. Sep 25, 2013

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

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

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
