Bell Vortex Rally 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.

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 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

Bell Vortex Rally Helmet 4.3 5 24 24
Great helmet, noisy though. This was my first full helmet. After two months of riding, I can say it was a great investment. If fits great, looks great. It's got average venting- it's advertised as needing to be in 3/4 or tuck, and this is true. You won't even feel anything around the eyebrow/top vents unless you're tucked. I find the top vents close a little too easily, and the other reviews about the helmet being loud are true. Around town I don't really notice it, but the second I go above around 40, it sounds like I'm in a wind tunnel. With a Jet engine. An angry jet engine that needs an oil change. All in all, a great helmet, and I'm glad I purchased it. July 11, 2014
Great value. I bought this using only the sizing chart on the website and it fits perfectly. I have a pretty big nugget and with head gear it is sometimes hard to get the right fit. This one is great and though I haven't had the chance to use it on the road yet ( still waiting on new BMW) I did use it at a skills training and it worked quite well even in close to 100 degree heat. Love the retro color scheme and it seems to be very quiet. Revzilla rocks! July 7, 2014
Great product for the cost Great product for the cost. Snug fit without being to tight. Gets a little noisy at speed, ear buds take care of that. Good ventilation. July 7, 2014
Stylish Helmet Great look but fits a bit smaller than expected. Plenty of space for bluetooth speakers though. June 30, 2014
Great fair weather hat. This is a great hat for fair weather riding but the ventilation is lacking and the visor fogs up when the weather is anything but perfect. Temperatures below 60 degrees Fahrenheit mean riding with the visor open a click or two. Rain = misery with this hat. That is the negative. The positives are its looks, fit, and comfort -- oh, and the price. Overall I'm pretty happy with it and if you don't ride a lot when the weather is cr@p, you will be too. June 30, 2014
Great looking helmet After wearing this helmet for the past month i can say i like. its not the best one iv had but it is the best looking one. i get a lot of compliments on how it looks. the only thing i didnt like about the helmet was the noise level, its really loud compared to other helmets iv owned. i guess you can say i have mixed feeling about this helmet but overall i like it. just dont forget to wear earplugs and you will be fine with this helmet. June 25, 2014
Solid Helmet Seems like a great helmet for the price which is why I bought it. I get a lot of compliments on the style. Visor snaps on and off super easily which is nice for cleaning or replacement. Mine pinches in the cheeks just a bit but not in an overly uncomfortable way and I have somewhat meaty cheeks. I'd definitely get another one. June 24, 2014
Great overal purchase Great fit, great field of view, the airflow could be better, but it is nothing to complain about as it is. I would buy this helmet again if I was starting over. June 23, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Lori M: Read the standards and safety good price for a safe comfortable helmet Jul 21, 2014
Anthony B: Needed a good everyday commuter helmet. Chose the vortex Rally for its classic styling, great price, and because it has everything I need and nothing I don't. Will wear the RS-1 for more spirited jaunts but for headed to work I think the Vortex will be ideal. Jul 10, 2014
Mark W: Just received this today. Love the fit and the look. My bike is shipping next week so I can't say much else about it yet. Revzilla is awesome though. Jun 27, 2014
Andrew M: Loved the styling and trusted bells safety Jun 19, 2014
Regan D: Needed a helmet for my upcoming MSF course & first motorcycle purchase. The Shoei GT AIR & RF1200 fit me perfectly but were a bit pricey for my first helmet. Even tho I haven't tried on the Vortex yet, from what I've read, it'll probably fit my intermediate oval head. So i thought it was worth the gamble. Plus I can always return it to Revzilla & trade up for the Shoei if it doesn't fit. But I hope it does cause I love the classic looks, and price. Not expensive, but not cheap either. Jun 2, 2014
Michael P: Timeless May 27, 2014
Jonathan E: Snell Rated for the price
Video segments decribing intermediate head shape helped me pick this helmet over the HLC FG-17 which was described as round face shape. Thanks Revzilla for those!
May 23, 2014
Joshua F: Needed a street helmet for commuting purposes and needed something not too pricey and with good ventilation since I live in a warm weather environment. The rally graphic seemed to be a good choice style wise. Snell certification was a plus as well. May 20, 2014
Ryan S: Snell 2010 rating is an absolute must have, correct size/fit type and awesomely classic style. Fantastic! Apr 17, 2014
Daniel B: 1. SNELL
2. I live between two very dangerous routes
3. It looks cool

Thomas W: Yup. Clear shield, mine had the button strap (not magnetic). Awesome product, highly recommend. Some users say the Vortex is loud, I think it's fine, but since it's my first lid I don't have anything to compare it to. Apr 12, 2014

fernando l: The holes or cutaways for the ears are pretty generous all helment designed bluetooth speakers should acomodate most sena's clamp from the side of the helmet and there is enough space besides the interior is removable so putting speakers is just a matter of reading manufactures instructions and a little ingenuity. I installed some sena H10 in less than 20 minutes battery life is okey and the sound is not super high def but solid hope i helped May 29, 2014

Joshua F: There are MANY options to choose from. I personally use a scala q3 on mine and it works great. The helmet does have a non removable collar around the bottom opening that leaves an unavoidable bit of wire exposed for the speakers but it doesn't get in the way. Other than that the setup looks great. This helmet also features ear hole cutouts under the pads making speaker placement much easier. May 29, 2014
