Bell Vortex / Star / Revolver EVO / RS-1 / Qualifier Face Shield 4.7 5 243 243
Very nice, reccomend. After about 2500 miles the thing is still new looking. I carry a microfiber cloth in my tank bag, on long trips, I spit on it and clean my face shield while on the high way. Then I only use water and a sponge in the kitchen sink to get it fully clean. NEVER ANY CHEMICALS OR SOAP. Ive ridden XXX mph in the pouring rain and zero water entered the helmet. The lock function, and vent function are crisp. Its fits very tight, and it would probably stay shut without the lock function. I use it with a bell rs-1. I had a transitions lens, but my green eyes are too light sensitive. This is dark but not too dark. 100% perfect product as far as im concerned. Ive been lazy while switching out the visor, and not exactly lined up the attach points correctly, and tried to close it, didn't do any damage to it. Line it up right, should last for years, do it in good lighting without gloves and its is very quick and easy. QUALITY BELL. November 16, 2015
Quick and easy snap-in install Took just a few seconds from opening the box to install. The ClickRelease feature makes it easy from going from the Dark Smoke shield for day riding, back to my clear shield for night riding. This shipped from Philadelphia and got here to Hawaii in just a couple days! Thank you Revzilla! November 16, 2015
Great, but could be darker Swapping this out with my clear shield is drastically better than trying to wear sunglasses in my helmet. Visibility is great, but it could stand to be just a touch darker when the sun is directly ahead. November 3, 2015
Perfect in lieu of sunglasses Great product, easy to change out the clear and put on the Bell helmet, smoke is dark enough that I don't need to wear sunglasses. November 2, 2015
Tinted Shield I bought the dark smoke version of this shield for a trip I was taking to avoid having to wear sunglasses. The smoke is decent, about the same as a pair of gas station sunglasses. Beats having a pair of sunglasses pinching your temples for 100+ miles a day. October 1, 2015
Perfect day time shield I bought this as a replacement for the clear shield that came with my helmet. I bought the dark smoke color and it works great in the day. I don't need sunglasses even on the sunniest days. Wouldn't recommend this for riding at night, though. It's just too dark. Thankfully, the Bell helmets have a quick release and it's easy to swap between shields in a few seconds. September 30, 2015
Worth the money. Great product and quilty built. It is easily scratched but so is every helmet visor. September 28, 2015
Dark Tint good for FL sun Dark tint visor purchased with Bell Vortex helmet. I did not want to spend the cash on the Transitions lens. Lens is easy to swap out with the clear one the helmet came with. The Dark tint is good reducing the bright Florida sun during the day. September 24, 2015

Dave C: looks great. Nov 16, 2014
Brandon G: I needed a dark shield to replace my polarized sunglasses. Unfortunately when you use polarized glasses you get a rainbow effect while looking through the visor. Nov 12, 2014
Gener R: Would have gone with the transition but i rather carry around a nice dark smoke than the purple hue that transitions have in medium light areas. Oct 31, 2014
Raymond E: Because of its quick change system which seemed a lot easier than the icon quick change face shield system which I have and find hard to change out. Oct 29, 2014

Matthew B: I wanted the dark smoke face shield to match my Bell Qualifer in matte black Sep 15, 2014
Amanda R: Thanks to the great photos submitted by other Zilla buyers I was able to save myself from being sorely disappointed in the color. I love the way the dark blue looks in the stock photo but the actual product in the photos submitted look totally different and that blue is just too intense. I need a shield for day time because my sunglasses press into my temples and it gets painful so a dark shield is perfect. I decided to get the dark gold iridium shield as it looks sick based on the actual photos Sep 15, 2014
Chaleunh R: spare Sep 7, 2014
Eleazar H: I choose this because I didn't want to wear sunglasses inside my helmet and this helped keep the sun out of my eyes. Sep 7, 2014

Michael H: because i felt like wasting money Aug 9, 2014
Marshall G: I like the sleek look of a dark visor with any helmet, plus I hate it when the sun hinders your vision when riding. Aug 2, 2014
James F: I don't have a good reason for choosing this face shield. Pure vanity. Think it looks cool. I already have the transitions shield which I imagine I'll wear for commuting (staying late at the office and having to ride in the dark) but on fun rides that will occur only during the day, I'll probably wear this one. Jul 28, 2014
Ryan H: Dark smoke fits and looks perfect with my matte black vortex helmet. Jul 21, 2014
Thomas H: I wanted something other than the clear visor my helmet came with. It is light silver and in my opinion not much difference from the clear visor. Ended up returning this immediately and going for the dark smoke. Jul 19, 2014

russell w: I ordered the dark smoke visor for my Bell Vortex Patriot helment. Most of my racing will be during the evening hours with the clear visor, but the dark smoke visor looks to good to pass up. This helment with the dark smoke visor will look great displayed in my shop between race weeks. May 27, 2014
Ramiro B: Summer is around the corner time for a new shield. May 22, 2014

Earl W: Mfg. reputation, past experience and exact replacement. What else ya need to know! Mar 18, 2014
Daryn B: Its always a good idea to have a spare just incase. One clear and one smoke. Most ppl disagree using a smoke shield at night, but i have contacts and find when using the smoke at night it helps with those cars with 8000k HID's or any super bright lights. Plus i have never had a problem seeing (while in the city with lights).transitions would seem like the best option but 100+ $'s is allot seeing how most of my old shields have some knocks on them from kicked up stones from cars or other bikes. Mar 6, 2014
Taylor W: Needed a tinted visor. Got the dark blue iridium because the color matches some of the custom colors on my bike Mar 4, 2014

Jeffrey E: Helmet came w/ clear shield and I wanted a smoked one. Feb 1, 2014
Keith P: I commute East in the morning and West in the evening, so I get blinded by the sun both ways. My Revolver helmet has drop down sun visor, but it isn't dark enough. I wear prescription glasses, so it is cheaper to by the Dark Smoke face shield than prescription sunglasses. I can fit the clear visor under the seat of my PCX150 if I need it for night riding, and the Quick Release mechanism on the Bell Revolver is dead easy. Jan 15, 2014
Kevin T: Replacing old one that's seen better day Jan 13, 2014
Sean D: Got to look the part. Dec 16, 2013

Reden B: Need it just for spare on my Bell Star and Revolver Evo. Nov 2, 2013
James H: Got the yellow one to help with contrast on low light days. Living in a rural area always a concern about varmits running into the road. Thought the yellow would help see deer and such.
Fedex guy put it were the dogs could get it, so ... uh... the dogs ate my faceshield.
Can't attach the shield, but just looking through it looks like it sure would have been nice to use.

steve s: The tinted shield is a must have for a good ride there better then my sunglasses Aug 23, 2013
Phillip T: My Vortex helmet came with the clear shield, so I picked up the dark smoke tinted one as well. Reviewers convinced me that the "dark" smoke would not be too dark, and after using it, I concur. Aug 19, 2013

A shopper asked: I want to buy ether the Light gold irdium or dark gold irdium. Will the dark gold be a darker tint on the inside or will it be the same as the light gold but with a darker gold color on the outside? Mar 31, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Lawrence R: The dark gold visor is MUCH darker when viewing from the inside, as well as being a darker gold on the outside. I actually own both light and dark gold visors and have only used the dark gold during a very bright track day in FL. I use the light gold for daily use, as the dark gold is like having blinders on in anything but full sunny conditions.

Hope that helps.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
michael p: It looked to be a shield lock, but on my Bell Vortex the helmet did not have the locking mechanism so it didn't do anything. I believe the the Star did have the complete lock on the helmets I checked out at the stores. May 29, 2014
Reply to michael Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jonathan T: Pretty much a little pinlock vent. You can open it to de-fog. I've never really used it as it is not in line of sight. It is not a tab to open the visor.

May 29, 2014
Reply to Jonathan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael L: How do you open and close it? There is nothing movable with it. It's just a plastic piece mounted to the shield. May 30, 2014
Michael L: The helmets I saw in the stores showed no locking mechanisms that I could tell. Just the plastic piece that creates a crazy whistle from air getting in. May 29, 2014

David D asked: How do the light and dark blue iridium shields compare in terms of visibility at night? My morning commute is always after sunrise, but I occasionally have to ride back after sunset and I don't want to have to be concerned about swapping them before I leave work. Feb 6, 2015

Tyler J: It depends on the type of road you commute on and weather conditions. I road several times at night with no issues when it was clear using darker visors. But it was usually bright freeways with plenty of traffic. Throw in fog, rain, or lack of lights (no cars, signs, or streetlights as reference) and you might find yourself squinting. If you need to ride when visibility is limited, consider keeping a clear visor handy. Or invest in the transitions darkening visor if you don't want to carry extra shields Feb 6, 2015

James M: Spend the extra money and buy the transitional visor for your commute. If you are going for a certain look with a mirrored shield, then I would choose the light iridium. Mar 10, 2015

A S asked: So this face shield fits any size bell qualifier helmet? For example, will it fit both a medium size and an XL size helmet? Dec 29, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alexander F: Actually it doesn't fit precisely. I've purchased Bell Qualifier Helmet size L and the tinted shield. When I replaced the stock clear shield with tinted one I realized that the latter one is little bit bigger and it doesn't tight enough so there are holes between the shield and rubber gasket of the helmet. May be helmet size XL will have a good match for these shields but not size M or L. Since there are holes between the rubber gasket and the shield it's neither rainproof nor noise proof. Jun 4, 2015

Trevor C asked: i bought the white arrow helmet and am trying to decide between the dark iridium gold or dark blue, wanted to know which one is harder to see my face from the outside ( which is more mirrored), and which looks cooler in your opinions? Aug 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Henry F: I'm not sure about the dark iridium blue, but if its identical to the dark iridium gold then the only difference is the color. This shield is pretty much like a full mirror shield. Not see through at all from the outside. Looking out through this shield is great for bright sunny days and its as described dark. Day time use great, night not so much. I picked gold only cuz I already have a blue shield on my HJC, just wanted to try something different. But the gold looks good on my RS-1 Motogears or whatever its called. Aug 7, 2014

Trevor C: Thanks for your answer I really appreciate it, is it a rich gold? Or is the iridium gold almost a brown color? Aug 7, 2014
Henry F: Rich Gold Aug 7, 2014
Dusty M: Hello Trevor,
I own Bell Star helmet, I personally changed the shield to the smoke color. It gives me the best color to hide my face compared to the others you mentioned.
Best Regards

A shopper asked: Is Rain X safe to use on these visors? I have the clear that came with my helmet and a transitions visor as well. I live in a place that rains quite a bit. I'd like to use a product like Rain X but I've read that it could possibly damage or make the visor brittle. Do you know if Rain X is safe to use on these? If not is there a product that is safe to use? Sep 14, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: We would not recommend using Rain-X on any visor/faceshield. Rain-X is a petroleum based product, and after prolonged use it will break down the polycarbonate chemical structure of the visor. This will result in the face shield becoming more likely to crack or break in an impact. Using any product similar to Rain-X (IE petroleum based) will have the same effect, and the best thing to do is just to keep the visor as clean as possible. If the surface of the visor is clean and smooth, the rain will not have any dirt to stick to, and should bead off the visor fairly well. When cleaning the visor use a very soft, lint free micro fiber cloth along with some warm water. Be very gentle and when drying the visor use a soft, dry, lint free micro fiber cloth. Sep 18, 2012

tnole23: it says on the plastic film covering the visor to not use that kinda stuff. that it'll remove the antifog and antiscratch coatings. so i wouldn't. i never have in the past and all i did was turn my head side to side while riding and it'll blow the rain off. works well enough. u could try it on the clear to see what it does before trying it on your transition one.

Brad K: RainX is "NOT TO BE USED ON PLASTIC" as it says on the label and the website:

Can Rain?X® Anti-Fog be used on acrylic?

No. This product should not be used on acrylic, plastic, motor bike helmets or motor bike windshields.

Stevan P: Bell Transitions Photochromatic shields automatically adjusts to light conditions, darkening when exposed to sunlight and clearing in low light. It eliminates the need change between tinted and clear shields when riding in the light of day, the darkness of night and anything in between.

David J asked: I'm in need of a tinted visor to help with my commute to work during the day but it's midnight when I'm riding home so I want to be able to see in the dark. I'm hoping to avoid spending the $$$ on the transition visor. Does anyone have experience with the HD yellow face shield at night time?

Alex B: If you have good vision and bright lights you will find it is not much different then a clear lense with mediocre lights. I have the darker iridium gold and it's still ok to me with a bright headlight. But looking off to the sides isn't easy on the eyes to be safe for an everyday thing. I vote you'll be happy with the yellow no prob! Mar 2, 2015

Justyn L: It's fine. Any tinted visor is going to reduce your visibility over a clear visor but not massively so.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Murray B: In my experience yellow and to a lesser extent an amber lens can improve contrast a bit in very "flat" light such as overcast days. But they also reduce the amount of light transmitted to the eye. I believe reduced light will make it even more difficult to see critters, especially if they are around the tree line. For spotting our four legged friends I would prefer a clear lens which effectively transmits all of the available light. I believe that improves my chances of spotting potential hazards. Oct 17, 2013

Tony S: I thought it would improve contrast, like the Maui sunglasses, but it doesn't. It casts a yellow shade on everything, making even traffic lights harder to determine what color it is, stick with light smoke, mirror, etc. Oct 28, 2013

Joel P: The Silver Iridium faceshields have the same levels of tint as their corresponding smoke shields. For example, the Light Silver Iridium has the same relative tint as does the Light Smoke, and likewise for the dark versions. Unfortunately, Bell does not offer a mirrored faceshield without any tint. Dec 20, 2011

tnole23: the best you're gonna find is the light silver iridium(or gold or blue). it'll have a little tint, but will be fine at night. i use dark smoke and ride at night all the time. iridiums are usually a little lighter than their non iridium cousin. so a light iridium will be lighter than a light smoke, typically. the only time a dark smoke is too dark is in middle of night with no street lights, no other cars, and no moon. so it's rare. i think a light tint should be good for you.

A shopper asked: I have thought about adding tear offs to my Vortex. Riding to work at night usually requires me to clean the face shield of bugs before I ride home in the morning. After 15 or 20 days of this, it gets hard to see through. What are the drawbacks of tear offs? Jan 2, 2015

Jomar G: Tear offs are great I have used a single tear off for months at a time what I do is when I come home from riding I simply tear the tear off and wash it in the sink under warm water with dish soap try to dry it with a clean paper towel dry it softly as to not scratch it works great for tear offs and once it really wears simply tear it off and use another one you can buy tear offs in multiples.

A shopper asked: What's the difference between the light gold and dark gold iridium shields? I'm planning on getting the flat black bell qualifier helmet and wanted to get one of those visors. Is one a lighter color or is it the tent that is lighter? I don't want one to be less reflective from the outside. Fools gold is like a light gold whereas a real gold is a lot darker, is that the case? I just don't want people to see in through my visor and am having difficulty deciding to go light or dark.

Lawrence R: I own both the light and dark gold visors. The first thing I'll say is the dark gold visor is DARK. Great on super sunny rides but you will be blind as a bat it gets anywhere near dark with the visor down. The light gold is perfect if you're looking for something that cuts down on brightness and won't allow people to see in, but is still light enough tint wise to allow you to see at night with the visor down. I only use the dark visor for track days where you'll be out in the brightest part of the day. For everyday use, go with the light tint. Hope that helps. Oct 8, 2014

RevZilla: When the description of an Iridium (or mirrored) faceshield says "light" or "dark", it is referring to the degree of tint, not necessarily the tone or shade of the color on the outside. A "light" blue will have approximately a 60% tint, the "dark" blue is closer to 80%. There is little to no difference in the actual exterior color. Oct 23, 2012
