Bell Vortex / Star / Revolver / RS1 Faceshield
Dark Blue Iridium
I basically bought this item for three reasons:
1. I wanted to look cool.
2. I didn't want to have to wear gafas del sol all the time.
3. I like the idea of being incognito, so when I wear this, I can walk around an no one knows who I am.
This product makes you look cool. BUY IT.

Great replacement visor
Easy to install and it seems well made. I got the smoke tint and it's plenty dark. Price seemed a little high but it is worth it.

No more looking stupid
I used to get dumb looks when I talked to myself while I ride, well no more... Now I can be stupid talking to myself and still look cool. No noise from the shield and fit perfectly on my modular.

It was free
I got this faceshield when I ordered Bell RS-1 RSD Flash Bronze Helmet. It came in dark smoke and really looks good on the helmet. I cant say anything negative because I got it for free.

I bought the dark smoke for daylight riding and it's great!

Dark vs Light Tint Visor
I originally wanted the automatic tinting shield but decided against it because of reviews stating it is too light. I did not want to use a mirrored shield this time as they scratch way too easy and scratches are annoying. So I decided on a dark and light tinted shield to see which would work best. The light shield was too light, almost like nothing at all. I was concerned that the dark shield would be too "blue." I had an HJC dark tinted shield that was that way. The Bell dark tinted shield is not. In full sun the dark shield made everything look a little hazy. Not so much that it was annoying or distracting. I just happened to notice it after about 1-1/2 hours of riding. For me, the dark shield was just right. I would not recommend using it at night as it would be way too dark.

This dark iridium shield for the bell vortex helmet is and was a great purchase. I gives the provided and desired protect from the sun while riding while also not being completely too dark. The qaulity is very good and has a great finish to it. Im more than happy with it and I recommend this to everyone with the bell vortex helmet !

Dark Gold Iridium
The dark gold iridium looks AWESOME! It's dark and onlookers can't see through it in the daytime. For the rider it blocks the sun out, even when riding directly into the sun it does a good job of blocking the sun and sunglasses are not needed.
I have been caught riding at night with this shade on more than a few times and it's not terrible. You just need to be careful because obviously it does inhibit your vision. Bright headlights will help you and if you are riding in a small city or lit town then it's not too bad either. Dark highways can be a bit harder to navigate but again just ride slower and be careful.
I have had this shade for two years now and have a few scratches on it as it does scratch relatively easily. But after 2 years of riding and thousands of miles the visor still looks great and is holding up just fine.
