Bell Vortex Patriot Helmet

The 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.


  • 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 interior for maximum comfort
  • 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
  • NutraFog II™ superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield
  • Five-year warranty
  • Snell M2010 and DOT Certified

Note: Helmet shown with optional tinted shield. Clear shield included.

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

Great Helmet for the money! Great helmet for the money. Fits well and is very light and aerodynamic!!! Cool graphics!!! April 12, 2014
Liked it! This is my first helmet so I really can't have a reference to compare but is really a good quality item December 3, 2013
Nice Snell 2010 helmet for under 200 bucks.. I needed a new helmet for an upcoming track day. This helmet is SNELL 2010 rated so it fit the bill. The price point is great, a lot of value there. Feels plush and comfortable. The Patriot version of the Vortex is nice, in my opinion. Haven't been to the track yet but at highway speed, not especially loud. Had a little fogging on the upper portion of the screen on a cold day but I cracked it for a second at a light and it quickly went away. The vents are pretty small but once you know where they are they work well. Vents pretty good, definitely felt the air. The strap is a regular d-ring type with a snap, no problems there. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase, no regrets. Can't comment on durability yet but seems to be well-built. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a mid-level helmet that's SNELL rated, looks great, fits well and is under 200 bucks!!! April 22, 2013

Wayne S: Best full face helmet for the money! Mar 16, 2014
Lindsey G: I chose this because I have used Bell brand helmet on my MTB and they have lasted for years. Also, this is a very low price for the graphic choices available. I only shopped for either SNELL or ECE certified helmets and this one seemed to offer the most for the money, along with the transitions lens option. Mar 9, 2014
Samuel W: Circle track dirt Mar 7, 2014
