Bell Qualifier DLX MIPS Helmet

The Bell Qualifier DLX Helmet comes jam packed with the great features of the Qualifier and also includes the Transitions Adaptive Face Shield at an impressive price.

The RevZilla gear specialists have been rolling through miles and time zones faster than Marquez powers through laps at Sachsenring, which is to say pretty darn fast. Having just returned from Cologne, Germany and Intermot 2014, they have seen the best of what’s new, what’s fun, and what is worth reporting in the ever-expanding moto-verse. From bikes cranking out 300 hp, to the tip of the spear with regards to new helmets, apparel, and motorcycle accessories, they saw it, rocked it, and are back here at RevZilla HQ ready to keep you informed so that you can make the most out of your time on two wheels.

One of the hottest items from the International Motorcycle, Scooter, and E-Bike Fair (Intermot) was the Bell Qualifier DLX Helmet. When it was unveiled in Germany it was shown to have several incredibly cool features that were not applicable to previous iterations. Most notably, it was announced that this helmet would come with a free Transitions photochromatic face shield and the ability to house a Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth communication unit (with the proper adapter plate). This is far-out for a helmet of any ilk, much less one that will come at an entry-level price point. Both of these features will offer a massive value-add to an already popular helmet. What’s that you say, you don’t rock a Sena but prefer the Cardo Q3 instead? Fair enough, to each their own. Bell has you covered for that too, as they have announced that an adapter plate will be offered which will make the latter compatible with the DLX Helmet as well.

Think twice
I have ridden 3,000 miles with this helmet, changed hinges twice, adjusted through EVERY possible permutation - it's NOISY, LOUD and you HAVE to use ear plugs.
Very disappointed with Bell after sales service. I'd advise against it, there are better for around the same price

Great helment- A little loud
This helment has been a joy to use. I have put about 2500 miles on my bike wearing this helment. It is comfortable compared to some of the other helmets I have owned. The mips protection also offers peace of mind. The auto tinting visor and the option to add a communication system is why I bought it.
The only issue I have is that it is a little loud on the side with the cutout for the communication system. That is to be expected however. I haven't bought a sena yet, but plan on doing it soon. I stuffed a little bit of foam into the open area and it has fixed the problem.
Overall I am happy.

Great Helmet
This is my first street helmet and I love it. I've had it now for about a month .The helmet is extremely comfortable and it fits great. I used the sizing chart and it was good for me. The visor is awesome, it changes its shade very quick depending on the weather condition. I live in a very hot area and the airflow is also great. I did read other reviews before buying this helmet, and saw that some said it can be quite a noise helmet. Like I mentioned before this is my first street helmet, and I can see what people mean. At times It can get a bit noise, but that doesn't bother me. I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone.

Good Helmet
This is a great helmet. I like the added security of the MIPS. The transitions visor is great. The helmet stays cool. Glasses are a challenge to use with this helmet so wearing my contacts more often. I did figure out how to squeeze my glasses in there tough. Once in place it is fine. Put some tape in the hole for the blue tooth if you don't have one to make it a bit quieter.

A little loud but a great helmet
Just Tried it out today. Only did about 20 miles but I love the helmet so far. Extremely comfortable, the field of view is great and the Transition shield is an awesome bonus to this helmet. I also like that I can add Bluetooth as well. haven't gotten there yet but definitely will in the future. The MIPS tech is an awesome safety feature as well.

The only downside that I can see so far is the noise level is quite a bit higher than I was expecting. I used to have an old crappy hundred dollar helmet that I expected that kind of noise from but didn't think it would be as bad on this one. I think it has something to do with the fit of the cheek pads letting a lot of air come through the underside of the helmet. The Bluetooth port on the side also lets a lot of noise come through. It can probably be solved by getting the thicker cheek pads and cutting a piece of foam to fit into the Bluetooth port. Have to try a few things and see what works.

Other than the noise, it's a fantastic helmet with a bunch of great features. It was also nice to not drop $500 bucks on a helmet as well.

Good value with Mipps
Nice fit, got it 1 size larger than Revzilla video said would work. Had 2 months, breaking in good. Love auto tint of shield. Live in Thailand where helmet requirements are lax to non existent and a "good" helmet here runs $30-60

Ordered my Bell while back in America and brought back

LOUD
I was looking forward to having this helmet with its integrated Sena comm system. The helmet feels ok when you try it on. BUT, after I installed the Sena and took it for a 4 day trip I couldn't believe how noisy it was. It gave me a migraine. I had to stop and buy ear plugs, the 1st time I ever had to do that. I also noticed my right ear was hurting, as something in the helmet was wearing on my ear and caused a blister to wear on my ear. Although the Transitions visor is great during the day, at night it blurs everything you see through it. I would avoid this helmet at all costs!

Can I add "Sena 20s Bluetooth Headset" to this helmet "Bell Qualifier DLX MIPS Helmet"?
A C on Nov 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The pocket in this helmet is made to fit the Bell Sena SMH-10 only. The Bell Sena SMH-10 has the same primary unit as the standard SMH-10 but the mounting system is made to work with Bell Qualifier DLX and Mag 9 helmets.
how does the bluetooth aspect work on this helmet? like listening to music?
A C on Nov 13, 2016
I've seen reviews on the previous iteration of this helmet that said it was loud, especially the whistling through the comm port. Can someone who's used this helmet long distance and at high speeds comment on the noise level? My tinnitus thanks you!
Max H on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There can be a little noise. I installed a little bit of foam to block any noise.
Can you mount a Sena 20S to this helmet?
A shopper on Oct 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can only mount a 20s as you would on a normal helmet, you can mount an SMH-10 or a 10s via the removable panel-if you purchase the mounting kit (or the SMH-10 that comes with the mounting kit included)
Does the MIPS for the same as the standard DLX?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2017
Any other colors available?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. They offer a red, white and black color scheme which looks really cool and a bib biz yellow and black color scheme.
Is this helmet snel 2015 rated?
