Bell Vortex Rally Helmet

The Bell Vortex is every bit the helmet you’d expect of the Star’s little brother. Developed in Bell’s state-of-the-art Santa Cruz, Calif. design center, the Vortex borrows heavily from the Star, using its Velocity Flow Ventilation with FlowAdjust for amazing ventilation and temperature control, as well as ClickRelease— the reigning world champ in shield ease-of-use. The lightweight polycarbonate shell is molded into a stable, wind cutting shape, and comfort is in no short supply with contoured cheek pads and a plush removable comfort liner. Finish it off with a noise reducing wind collar and integrated speaker pockets and you have a complete package at a killer price.

  • Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell

This helmet has the safety ratings, comfort and fit that I wanted. I love the quick change face shields.
Brady H on Sep 12, 2017
This helmet looks sweet. Comes with a clear visor, so ordering a transition lens for sun and aesthetic reasons.

Really sharp looking helmet! Only problem is when I put it on, my chin was actually exposed; i.e., you could still see the bottom of my chin poking out from the bottom of the helmet. I've always thought I had a normal sized head and chin. So, I'm assuming this helmet is better for people with smaller features. For example, it fit a female friend of mine perfectly. It's now the helmet she wears when we go riding. Not saying it's a woman's helmet, but better for narrower shorter chins. Size Med.
William J on May 3, 2017
I'm a passenger, so I didn't want to invest a ton. It seemed that this helmet has the safety I need with enough style.
Candace T on Apr 2, 2017
Awesome fit and cool styling with a taste of retro with the rally stripe. Tons of compliments already.
Patrick K on Dec 17, 2016
Great fit and awesome style
Maciej C on Dec 16, 2016

gretchen w on Oct 18, 2016
Basic entry level helmet as a second helmet. Classic stripe decal was cool too vs my Shoei all flat black one I already own
William L on Oct 11, 2016
Currently own a bell helmet and liked how this looked
Michael S on Sep 25, 2016
Good fit from Bell helmets in the past.
Jonathan R on Sep 12, 2016
I wanted a full face helmet that was not very flashy and had a little bit of retro styling.

I have other Bell helmets already. I like the fit of bell helmets.
YYZ on May 20, 2016
good price, solid reviews, simple but attractive styling. I also like the video reviews on the revzilla site, which is why I ordered through Revzil
Amber J on May 18, 2016
My first helmet, I got it cause it was recommended to me

Fit and style
daniel a on Jan 25, 2016
Great helmet for the price, a bit on the noisey side but not unbearable. Under $200 for a Snell rated lid is great, and this helmet looks awesome as well.
Chase S on Jan 12, 2016
classic look with good functionality without breaking the bank
Bloodytomvayne on Nov 17, 2015
The original Rally style was a large factor. The under $200 price point sealed the deal.
Kyle B on Sep 17, 2015
comfort and style, like the way Bell fits my head

Kyle L on Sep 9, 2015
Great looking helmet with tons of features normally found on much more expensive helmets. I use this helmet to race flat track and it works great and meets all of the safety requirements.
Jack W on Aug 13, 2015
I wanted a DOT & Snell certified helmet. I've been familiar with the Bell name for years and as such has a trusted manufacturer feel. I really like the rally style of the helmet and reviews were favorable.
Otis M on Jun 28, 2015
it has very good reveiws
kaleb p on Jun 14, 2015
Great value on a Snell certified high quality brand-name helmet. Track-day pro's at my local track are big fans of Bell helmets.
Jason T on Jun 5, 2015
friend said vortex is a good helmet to start with.
Christopher W on May 19, 2015
Tried on several brands of helmets at a local store and this fit and felt the best and fit into my beginner budget.
Kyle H on May 17, 2015
good price, looks awesome. I watched the review here on and it was nice to know all the features of the helmet before I bought it.
Jeffrey P on May 9, 2015
Love the way it looks. Good price. And most important SNELL Approved.
Kirk W on May 7, 2015
It seems to have higher end features for the price, and I love the "rally" design.
Brian C on Apr 7, 2015
Seems like a good deal for the price. Lots of features that you see on much more expensive helmets. Great looks!
Allen E on Apr 1, 2015
I love this helmet. I am getting another because someone stole my matte black one!
Cole C on Mar 31, 2015
I have a Moto Guzzi V7 Stone (cafe-styled bike), so the matte with the classic white stripe looks cool for that.
E D on Feb 7, 2015
Good reviews, affordable price, and attractive style.
Ryan S on Dec 26, 2014
Good look and good protection at a great price
Peter Jay J on Nov 29, 2014
it is a snell M2010 helmet which is a rating required for racing
Nancy B on Nov 28, 2014
Safety plus look. Price under $200
Ian T on Oct 20, 2014
I started looking at the Bell Qualifier helmets however after reading reviews I decided to step up to the Vortex for the fact it had slightly better reviews on venting and it was also Snell and DOT rated.

I liked the look, I liked the reviews, and I liked the price. This is my first helmet purchase.
Kenyotta W on Sep 16, 2014
No one else had this helmet it locally. Much appreciated, color and shape was wife approved!
Mark B on Sep 11, 2014
I love the classic look, quality behind the brand, and many ventilation options. Like others have said its a little loud on the highway but for the price point I believe its the best you can get. Go ahead and grab a 600$ helmet if you can afford it and you will get less volume at high speeds but if you don't have the funds you will still enjoy the vortex :)
Kevin w on Sep 8, 2014
Love the look and had great reviews. My wife says it's comfortable and quit. The ventilation is good too.
Christian A on Sep 2, 2014
I was going to buy a SHOEI GT air but for the money this is a perfect helmet. I couldnt justify the money for the SHOEI for the amount of time i ride.

my head measures 23.5 inches. what size should i get?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Depends on how you like your helmets to fit. I prefer mine on the snug side, so if i were you i'd go with a medium.
Does this helmet meet Australian standards?
Mark c on Aug 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: SNELL RATED, best rating you can get in a helmet, if safety is your biggest priority (as it should be) get this helmet.
My head size is 60cm - 23.6 inches. Should I get a large or x-large? I am using large for shoei rf-1100 and also shark s700.
Ahmed F B on May 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Looks like an XL...
Does it come with a clear shield only?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yup. Clear shield, mine had the button strap (not magnetic). Awesome product, highly recommend. Some users say the Vortex is loud, I think it's fine, but since it's my first lid I don't have anything to compare it to.
Is it ece approved?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Vortexes are Snell approved, which is a higher certification than ECE. I have a Vortex and a Qualifier DLX (which has the awesome shield) and although the Qualifier DLX is a little more expensive the shield is totally worth it. Qualifier is only ECE (not SNELL) but if I were going out on the track, I wouldn't use the Vortex anyway... I'd get a Star Carbon.
Hi, what sort of blue tooth devices are available for this helmet? I would like a blue tooth device that I can use to communicate and listen to music on. Thanks, Darren
darren E on May 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The holes or cutaways for the ears are pretty generous all helment designed bluetooth speakers should acomodate most sena's clamp from the side of the helmet and there is enough space besides the interior is removable so putting speakers is just a matter of reading manufactures instructions and a little ingenuity. I installed some sena H10 in less than 20 minutes battery life is okey and the sound is not super high def but solid hope i helped
I'm just getting into motorcycles do you think this is a good starter helmet?
Brenden E on Oct 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've had this helmet for a year or so now, and I really like it. It's comfortable, even on very hot days here in NC. The vents work well to create airflow. The visor opens a crack to let in air. And I have not had trouble with fogging.

The only downsides I have discovered are that (1) the helmet is very large, which sometimes makes me feel like a bobblehead, and (2) the helmet is not particularly aerodynamic. At highway speeds over 70 mph, the airflow yanks my head up and around quite a bit, and it's difficult to turn my head. Leaning into a tucked position doesn't seem to matter.

Good call on the full face helmet. Protect your melon.
Is this helmet has bloothtooth?
A shopper on Aug 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This helmet does not come with bluetooth, but it does have speaker cut outs for a bluetooth system.
1. Do you sell the magnet for the chin strap?

2. Between this helmet and the AGV K3, which you consider is a better helmet?
Mario R on Aug 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'd choose this, it has SNELL certification, and the design is much newer. you can't really go wrong with either one, but for safety's sake i'd go the one that i certified to be safer.
Is the Vortex Rally Snell M2015 like the Grinder?
Joshua C on May 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The reason I ask is that the Bell site has it listed as M2015...
