Product Details

Bell Vortex Helmet

Nothing beats a solid color to highlight the stylish design of a helmet. Developed in Bell’s state-of-the-art Santa Cruz, California design center, the Vortex borrows heavily from its big brother the Star. With a solid compliment of features, the Bell Vortex is a great choice as a primary helmet for everyday use that can also transition to the occasional track day. A killer price rounds out the package and gives you a big bang for your buck.

RevZilla's Opinion of the The Bell Vortex Helmet

The Bell Vortex Helmet has grown to be one of the top selling and more ubiquitous ~$200 sport helmets in the RevZilla family. The light weight, Snell Rating and ability to use the Bell Photochromic shield allow the Bell Vortex Helmet to cover a lot of the bases the typical sport or track day rider is looking for in a reasonably priced helmet. Many times we see this type of functionality only available in helmets over the $300 mark. In the 3/4 or tuck position the Bell Vortex Helmet will provide a great solution in just about any spirited or sport riding scenario. If you find a graphic or color that suits your taste and you have an intermediate oval head shape, the Bell Vortex is a great option.

Shape: Intermediate Oval

For the price and what you get. This is a great deal on a great helmet
Kevin G on Aug 15, 2017
I wanted a Matt black helmet, plus finding one that is the mid range in price. Bell has always had good quality in the past, so going with the Vortex seemed to be the right choice.
Greg A on Jul 31, 2017
This helmet had insanely positive reviews and the price can't be beat. The styling and features are nice and it is said to provide a very high level of protection. Safety first, but price point and features are important, too.
Brayton T on Jul 26, 2017
I choose this helmet for protection, style, comfort and price.
John M on Jul 23, 2017

Luke M on Aug 22, 2016
Looked like a solid helmet with good reviews for a decent price. I'm not a fan of a whole bunch of colors plus the matte black matches my bike.
one3ten on Jul 28, 2016
Awesome price for a Snell and DOT helmet.

Needed an upgrade from my G-MAX budget helmet. Getting the AGV Corsa soon!
jared r on May 28, 2016
The reviews!
Melanie S on May 10, 2016
Increased air flow for cooling in the hot Mississippi summers. Snell M2010 certification.
Kenneth S on May 3, 2016
Great helmet, I bought this to replace my HJC that didn't fit me all that well. Its great quality and even better when paired with theTransitions SolFX Photochromic Face Shield. it is a little too loud. One remedy has been to seal the openings/vents next to the ears as this won't effect air flow. this makes the noise easier to handle. With that said, after sealing the ear openings, id recommend and buy again.
Cory R on Apr 10, 2016
safety quality of the Bell helmets, and the oval shape that better fits my elongated head shape. too many helmets are round and create pressure points on the forehead.
george b on Apr 5, 2016
vortex for a reason. this is like a wind tunnel. wish i could exchange.
Nathan O on Mar 24, 2016
Less noise than my open face, more warmth now that is cooling off, and i love the way it looks.
Jordan M on Nov 12, 2015
My persuasion to choose this product was affordabillity and good reviews as well as a long standing company with integrity.
tony r on Nov 1, 2015
The amount of features for the price. Both DOT and SNELL ratings.
Randy D on Sep 7, 2015
I originally wanted the ICON Alliance, but after the video described this helmet as more of an intermediate oval (Whereas the Alliance is more elongated) I decided to go with this for my gargantuan noggin. both were good helmets, but I want it to fit right.
Clayton W on Sep 6, 2015
"It's awesome!! Been using it 3 months now."
Martin W on Sep 5, 2015
Bell reputation and reasonable price.
Paul G on Aug 29, 2015
It looks good and the video sold it.
Wilson C on Aug 28, 2015
Wife needed a helmet to start riding passenger, fit her best other than the $500 Shoei when tried on at a local store.
Rob S on Aug 26, 2015
Revzilla video review
Kevin C on Aug 3, 2015

Extremely clean looking helmet and Snell certified at a reasonable cost.
Fabrizio C on Jun 29, 2015
I chose this helmet based on the reviews. It's also a nice looking helmet.
Eric A on Jun 21, 2015
Helmet had good reviews.
Lance P on Jun 14, 2015
NAME, Value
I saw a video here at RevZilla that was excellent. It explained features and convinced me that this is a race designed helmet, just made from the inexpensive above standard entry level helmet.
DENNIS S on May 29, 2015
New rider. Obsessed with Safety! Bell is a reputable company that has been around for awhile. Plus its DOT and SNELL approved! Price is also great, and it was recommended to me by a friend!
Austin T on May 28, 2015
Great helmet, Snell and DOT.
Jdiggles on May 23, 2015
Because it had good reviews. Too big and noisy though.
Armin M on Sep 18, 2017
For the price and what you get. This is a great deal on a great helmet
Kevin G on Aug 15, 2017
Is the draft collar removable? I bought a Bluetooth com and I can't clamp it on.
Mike f on Jan 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Never mind - nailed it, metaphorically speaking.
Now that we are in 2017, are these helmets snell 2015? I've heard different things, wondering if the ones people are getting now are snell 2015.
A shopper on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: mine has the snell 2015 sticker under the comfort liner. it was purchased 10/3/17
Recently purchased the vortex helmet, the cheek pads are super tight. Looking to buying smaller pads, What cheek pads fit this helmet?
Austen W on Jul 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Here is the link from my past order:
I have a Sena SMH-10 headset I want to attach but im worried that the non-removable neck roll will not allow me to clamp it to the helmet properly. will I need to cut out a space for the headset?
A shopper on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: SMH10 fits fine, it slides in right underneath that neck roll.
How many shell sizes does this helmet come in (i.e. does XS and S, M and L, XL and XXL share shells or does each size have its own?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2014
Does the Bell Helmet decal come off, or is it printed onto the helmet?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Its a decal under the final layer of the finish. You can't get to it unless you really wanted to screw up the clear coat.
my head is 22 1/4inches. should I get a medium or a small?
A shopper on Sep 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Depends. If you're 22 1/4 with a bald head I would probably say go for the small. If your hair sometimes grows out or you sometimes tie your head to ride, go for the medium. As always, ensure the accuracy of your measurement. Take 3 measurements and have someone else do the same. Compare the results.
Snell rating is 2010 on Revzilla, yet 2015 on Bell's website. Wondering if I should buy from Bell?
Aerin G on Sep 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased mine from Revzilla and it has the snell 2015 sticker.
I've been reading the reviews and almost everyone mentions the sides being a bit tight at first. I wear glasses and was wondering if that would be a problem with the first few wears.

A shopper on Oct 6, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I wore sunglasses for awhile (Oakley) when the Dark Visors were on back order. It was a little bothersome at first, but the more I rode the more I stopped noticing. My noggin and the helmet adjusted. My best advice would be to try one on locally somewhere if you can. Otherwise you may want to wear contacts or you could just ship the Helmet back. They have an excellent return policy as long as the item is not "ridden".
Hey guys, I was wanting to know if this helmet comes with the standard transparent visor or if it has a darker visor like the one in the photos? I am looking at the Matte Black helmet in S/M. I'd appreciate the help!

A shopper on May 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This helmet comes with a standard clear visor. I spent the extra $ for the transition visor (excellent visor) and I've kept the original as a backup.
