What's this?

Note: This item has cosmetic damage which may include, but is not limited to scuffs, scratches, stains or chips. The damage affects the aesthetics but not the function of the item. This helmet has a long scratch above the back right vent. It also has scratches on the left side behind the pivot point.

Bell RS-1 Helmet - Solid

The all-new Bell RS-1 Solid Helmet bridges the gap between the top-of-the-line Bell Star and the value-minded Vortex with an amazing blend of mid-line price and high-end performance. Starting with a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite shell, the RS-1 brings it with Bell’s vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system providing cool comfort, a super stable aerodynamic profile keeping the helmet still at speed, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swaps…not to mention an amazing variety of tint and coating choices. The Bell RS-1 Helmet should be a game changer in the mid-high end helmet assortment. The RS-1 Helmet will prove its worth on track and street alike.

Contour Cut Cheekpads and a plush, removable, washable liner cradle the head in comfort while Bell’s exclusive Magnafusion magnetic strap keeper makes flapping strap ends a thing of the past. All told, it’s one great helmet at a modest price. Need help with the sizing? Watch our sizing video or give our Gear Geeks a call!

It's very quiet and a snug fit. I can't hear people talk. This helmet is the best case for someone with tinnitus on a budget.
Brendan O on Feb 27, 2016
50% off deal... why pass it up?
Tj A on Feb 22, 2016
It's suppose to have a decently wide field of view and it was half off.
Brianna C on Feb 20, 2016
I wanted a full face helmet and the video sold me on the Bell RS1. On sale for half price made it that much more easier.
Robert M on Feb 15, 2016
Bought this for the GF as a Valetine's Day gift. She was ecstatic! And of course, it was a great deal because it was on clearance at 50% off.
Martin W on Feb 14, 2016

I chose this helmet as I've heard great reviews on it, It was a STEAL of a price! and it carries the BELL recognition and quality that all bell lids have. solid 5/5 rating.
Eduardo L on Feb 2, 2016
Thanks to revzilla and there review videos I narrowed down to this helmet based on all of the reviewed features.
thomas c on Jan 26, 2016
comfort and quiet...couldn't be happier...
Brian M on Jan 25, 2016
To small for my head . My chin was popping out of helmet i am a small head size helmet ..on top of the head theres no much cussion so you will feel the hard shell on your head. I end up returning .
Julio p on Jan 24, 2016
Price and functionality! This seems like a perfect helmet for long drives this summer!
Josh B on Jan 22, 2016
I had a bell vortex for 4 years, and I'm grateful bell decided to make their lenses universal. It can transfer over to my new rs1. One thing to note; I wore a large vortex comfortably, but when I tried a large rs1 it was extremely tight. I had to exchange it for a xl rs1
Eric T on Jan 19, 2016
Great price!!
K S on Jan 11, 2016
Teh reviews, man! No, really, the reviews. This should be perfect. Can't wait to find out.
edgecrush3r on Jan 11, 2016
I have wore Bell helmets for years and love their products.
John C on Jan 10, 2016
Good reviews, and it had 50%.
Frank G on Jan 8, 2016
good value
jim a on Jan 7, 2016
Loyalty. I've been wearing Bell helmets for over 40 years. This is the closest I'm getting to a Bell Star and 50% off the price helped!
JOHN M on Jan 6, 2016
Price and product quality.
Jim D on Jan 4, 2016
Sale price was a good deal on a good helmet.
Josh L on Dec 31, 2015
The price to performance ratio of this helmet made it a no-brainer. I got the solfx shield also and plan on drilling it and adding pinlock. This will make it the perfect daily driver.
Matthew M on Dec 30, 2015
Needed a helmet for the girlfriend who is anxious to ride pillion. Half off, with another $30 in Zilla bucks to spend? No brainer. It's very plush and I am almost, not quite but almost jealous. Keeping my RF-1200 though.
Justin E on Dec 26, 2015
Like the fit and quality of Bell Helmets. Now the price is affordable too.
J K on Dec 21, 2015
Did a lot of research (this is my first time purchasing a helmet) and this helmet seemed to have the most benefits for the cost, per the positive reviews. It was 50% off the original price as well, so that combined with the reviews sold me on it. However, I seem to have a more "round" shaped head and a few reviewers said that it might be a bit uncomfortable due to that. I will know for sure once it arrives and I get a change to try it on myself.
Owen B on Dec 16, 2015
Reputable brand in Bell. Most helmet for the money that I've seen anywhere.
Brett C on Dec 14, 2015
Great helmet at an incredible price.
Erik A on Dec 14, 2015
Bought it for my girlfriend.
Thomas F on Dec 11, 2015
1/2 off. Dark Helmet ...
Patrick U on Dec 11, 2015
Closeout pricing on a quality helmet for mini road racing to replace my Shoei RF-1100.
Dean M on Dec 10, 2015
Great helmet .at a great price. Love the videos..

JUAN FERNANDO H on Dec 9, 2015
On sale, highly rated, all purpose helmet
Andrew C on Dec 8, 2015
Reviews said it is a quiet comfortable helmet. It was on sale, so the price was right.
Eric S on Dec 7, 2015
It was on sale and looked really cool
pippip2468 on Dec 6, 2015
reviews are good
Anthony R on Dec 5, 2015
Price match, free shipping, and free returns...what is not to like.
Kenneth J on Dec 5, 2015
My Bell Vortex was too big (medium) and too loud. I needed a new/different helmet and saw the RS-1. The price was great and reading reviews on how quiet it was, I was sold.
James S on Nov 30, 2015
Cyber Monday 50% off was too good to pass up. Thanks RevZilla!
John T on Nov 30, 2015
I just got a bike after 27 years on the side lines. (kids and all) I need a good helmet and I have always trusted BELL. I like the looks and the price.
DAVID L on Nov 29, 2015
The fit is good, the quality appears high, and the price was better than I could get elsewhere.
Scott R on Nov 28, 2015
"Was looking to upgrade from ICON gear. Always liked Alpinestars gear. ICON has the better graphics. So until they come up with some SNELL approved gear, I will have to go with other companies"
Judah B on Nov 27, 2015
I love this helmet. Great quality at a reasonable price.
Sean C on Mar 3, 2016
It's very quiet and a snug fit. I can't hear people talk. This helmet is the best case for someone with tinnitus on a budget.
Brendan O on Feb 27, 2016
The helmet is anti fog correct? I have a BiLT helmet that cost $120 which is a bit beat up but the biggest issue i have with it is - FOG especially in the cold weather right now and air flow.
Jesse P on Dec 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am very hot headed, and it tends to fog up a little when at a stop, if you leave it closed. Have not had an issue at all while riding. But I have never had a helmet that didn't, while stopped. This helmet features great ventilation though. Also it has a latch on the side that will lock the visor down, or just barely crack the bottom of it open as to not let to much wind in to make your eyes water. Very pleased w this helmet!! UPSELL... Also spend the $120 on the photochromic transitional visor!!!
Can you wear Sun glasses comfortably while wearing this helmet?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I got the tightest size I could get my head into--a medium. I can wear sunglasses but only if they are close fitting and shaped close to the head and temples. Even then, I wouldn't say it's super comfortable. DO NOT expect to be able to wear RayBan Wayfarer or other "stylish" sunglasses.
Does the matte finish scratch easily? At all?
Jennifer K on Jan 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I noticed it scratched a little when I locked it to the bike but in fairness it was from the pillion foot peg - so understandably caused.

It's not easily scratched by normal standards but care should be taken as usual.
I see the RS-1 is Snell rated. Is it also DOT rated?
A C on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is
Does this Bell RS-1 helmet have the mark to show it complies with Australian Standard?
A C on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Looking around and doing a little bit of research shows me that the RS1 is available for purchase.

I do not know if THIS one has the aussie COP badge however as it ships from the US
why is this not being produced anymore if it is such a great helmet?
WOODROWBR B on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A new one is probably coming out. Improved. Doesn't mean this one isn't any good!
