Dark Smoke is Perfect
I ordered the dark smoke hoping it would work well at sunset in the AZ desert and it works fantastic. Originally I was going to get the transitions lens but after seeing it in videos and reading reviews the transitions visor doesn't get dark enough and tends to have a purplish hue in certain lighting conditions.

Bell Vortex Facesheilds
Used on my Bell Star helmet; I have a clear / light grey iridium / dark blue iridium.
Great against fog if used in conjunction with breath box. Great in the rain with very little water getting through due to shape of the shield (Oregon / Washington USA all 4 seasons weather).

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
John W: I use this helmet for racing and a lot of track on the west coast are in Brown Town, the desert.Oct 12, 2014
Aaron M: Got it for keeping the sun outta the face.Oct 8, 2014
Matthew B: I wanted the dark smoke face shield to match my Bell Qualifer in matte blackSep 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 photosSep 15, 2014
Michael H: because i felt like wasting moneyAug 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
Phillip T: I got the dark smoke for those sunny days! Plus it looks awesome on the helmet.Jul 17, 2014
brian r: wanted a dark shield and this worked greatJul 10, 2014
Gale H: I wanted something other than clear that I can ride at night with so I thought I would give it a try.Jul 4, 2014
charles j: the light tint allows me to ride in the dark in the early morning without having to change for when the sun comes up.Jul 3, 2014
Melanie R: Need visibility in bright sunlight too !!!!Jun 27, 2014
Joshua F: Needed sun protection for my Bell VortexJun 20, 2014
Karl W: scratched my original face shieldJun 18, 2014
Joeseph S: I got a new bell star helmet and needed a tinted shield.Jun 5, 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
Jason C: I hear Bell has one of the best helmets to quickly swap face shields on and off with ease and plau I like the gold tint ;-)May 18, 2014
Ron K: I wanted a light tint instead of clear.May 17, 2014
Breck R: Need a tinted shield for the spring/summer. I live in California.Mar 20, 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 bikeMar 4, 2014
AREDIO G: It's a very good acessory, for sunny daysMar 3, 2014
Derek S: I bought this out of necessity. I always drive with sunglasses. So, this was a natural choice.Feb 8, 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 dayJan 13, 2014
KarenSue L: requested by my son-in-law for use in his motorcycle helmetDec 2, 2013
HASAN D: Makes the Bell RS 1 Emblem Helmet in white looks killer sharpNov 27, 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.Oct 28, 2013
Jose A: Scraches on my old shield. Looking for Ambar in color, hope the Gold will do the trick.Oct 23, 2013
Johnny I: I trust Revilla with my motorcycle purchasesSep 29, 2013
John A: I mostly ride during daylight hours, so I needed a tinted faceshield.Sep 20, 2013
Ã?yvind S: Because I dont like to ride with a tinted faceshield at nightSep 15, 2013
tyler h: My sunglasses do not fit in my helmet so i needed a replaceable visor that was tintedSep 9, 2013
steve s: The tinted shield is a must have for a good ride there better then my sunglassesAug 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
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
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
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 Dusty Moulton.Aug 7, 2014
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
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
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.Feb 28, 2013
daymeeyan:Gradient is darker on top and gradually gets lighter toward the bottom. It is not the same as the transition shield which gets lighter or darker depending on the surrounding light.Jun 24, 2011
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. If you would like more information about the Photochromatic shields please visit:
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
A shopper asked:Are these replacement shields the same anti -fog, -scratch, and -UV as what comes with the helmet? Or do any have better UV protection than the clear shield that normally comes with the helmet?Apr 20, 2013
RevZilla:These replacement shields are indeed the same anti -fog, -scratch, and -UV as what comes with the helmet. Depending on the tint you choose, you can either enhance or dim the amount of light you will experience.Apr 25, 2013
A shopper asked:Which color shield would best provide that? I bought the bell revolver and it has an internal sun visor and I ride a lot during night time and would just like a cool mirror look without any additional tinting(or VERY low)Nov 30, 2011
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.Feb 28, 2013
Chris K:Unfortunately, these shields are in high demand and we are currently waiting on Bell to produce more, however, you can be notified of its arrival by entering your email in the yellow box that appears over the product image when you select the shield color of your choice.Jul 1, 2011
Christopher1013:These are a tough item to find anywhere. You would think Bell would shift all production to that color. What I did (You maybe did too) is use Revzillas email notification feature. I worked great for me. Good luck. You will get one soon.Dec 24, 2012
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.Oct 7, 2014
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
