Bell Vortex Helmet Nothing beats a solid color to highlight the stylish design of a helmet. The Bell Vortex is available in a choice of gloss black, matte black, white or silver four classic color choices in the riding spectrum. Developed in Bells 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. Features Velocity Flow Ventilation system with FlowAdjust for maximum stability and temperature control with minimal noise and buffeting Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell Contour cheek pads (by means of stacked foam, not hand cut) Removable and washable, antibacterial/antimicrobial interior comfort liner Padded Wind collar to drastically reduce wind/road noise Integrated speaker pockets for audio speakers ClickRelease for the fastest, easiest, tool-free shield swaps ever Clear NutraFog II superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield. Dark tint and other shields available for purchase separately Five-year warranty Weight 1600g Certification Snell M2010, DOT Note Helmet ships with clear faceshield only. Replacement shields can be purchased separately HERE Bell Vortex Shield . Note Helmet may come with either the magnetic strap keeper or standard chin strap snaps 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.

In my review I hope to be fair, objective, and helpful to future buyers. The vortex is a great helmet. Bang for the buck is great since it is DOT approved and snell 2010! For $179!!! That's called protection for a great price! Size is true to the guide, perfect fit, as well air amazing air flow! You completely feel the difference once you open the vents at any speed! The crack detent in the visor I absolutely love, pretty much have it cracked all the time when city riding in the hot Florida weather. My only cons to this helmet is the non removable neck roll which seals around the neck well but is thick and bothers my neck, as it rubs when I ride and turn my head. but that could be a personal problem. Also the bluetooth ear cutouts seems to make the helmet a bit noisier they take in wind. The shield is really clear and incredibly easy to remove. For the money you can not get a better brand new out of the box product. I would buy it again!
