 Bell Revolver Helmet - Solid
Bell Revolver Helmet - Solid
Bell Revolver Helmet - Solid Convenience meets confidence with Bells all-new Revolver modular helmet. By harnessing the design horsepower of the marquee Bell Star and the extensive RD know-how of Bells Santa Cruz, Calif. engineering team, weve made a flip-up thats as beautiful as it is functional. One look and its easy to see the family resemblancethe new school shaping and contours that are the signature of the Star (as well as the value-minded Vortex and new mid-line RS-1) are clearly evident and functional in the Revolver. Like its siblings, the Revolver features Bells Velocity Flow Ventilation system to usher cooling air through the helmet. The systems use of precisely-placed flow separator combined with its truncated shape make for an inherently stable aerodynamic signature. The Revolver includes modular-specific features like the integrated internal Sun Shadea short, dark shield independent of the main shieldwhich drops down with the flick of a lever to fight bright sunlight. A robust, easy-to-actuate button opens the Revolvers mechanism allowing the chinbar to flip up. The helmet also uses the worlds quickest, easiest-to-use shield changing systemBells ClickReleaseallowing the option of more than a dozen tints, including the astounding Transitions SOLFX photochromic shield. Other features include comfy Contour Cut Cheekpads, a removable washable comfort liner, Bells Magnefusion strap keeper which replaces the often hard-to-locate strap snap with an elegant magnetic solution that easily engages and secures the strap end.

I bought the Bell Revolver helmet 1 month ago, and it has been worth every penny and more. Being modular, it is a bit noisier than I'd prefer, but it's only bothersome for the first few minutes of riding. The benefit of the modular design is that it does help make the helmet easy to get on and off, and it's very nice to be able to take a quick drink without having to remove the helmet. The Revolver's styling is sleek and modern - it looks like a much more expensive helmet. I originally had the Rally (black with white stripes down the center), but the mechanism that allows the flip down sun shield broke on my first ride. It was replaced by Revzilla under warranty (thanks Chris!) and has performed beautifully! All in all, I'm very impressed, and will likely buy another Revolver, unless I can afford the Bell Star. Bell is coming on strong!
