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 Helmets ship with clear faceshield only. Replacement shields can be purchased separately HERE Bell Vortex Shield . Note Bell Vortex 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.

I had recently been in an accident and cracked my previous DOT approved Modular helmet. I didn't feel safe enough, so I decided to find something with Snell 2010 certification. The Helmet is beautiful. I bought the Silver one, and it looks very slick with the Dark Visor. I had to return it for a larger size (ordered L, was too tight around the face), but that's the only problem it gave me. Vents are fantastic. The Eyebrow vent really makes a difference on hot days. The only trouble it gives me is with my glasses. It's difficult to position them around my ears through the padding, but hopefully it changes as I wear it in more. Great product, but remember to buy a darker visor! They flip off remarkably easy, and you can just store your 2nd one against your love handles inside your jacket if you don't have a bag on your bike!

Awesome jacket, very stylish. Was worried about the sizing. I'm 6'1 and only about 155 lbs with long arms. The medium fits great. 2 Zippered vertical vents on the back, 2 on the shoulder. The lining is a cool looking urban camo, which absolutely cannot be worn in the summer. Easily snaps/zippers off. Two big pockets on the inside along with a smaller one one the left side. Two on the outside. Velcro waist tighteners are nice, but nothing really to latch onto a belt. Shoulder and elbow pads are very sturdy, but I will be replacing the foam back protector(typical foam). Two more vents would make it 100% perfect, but still an awesome buy.
Pros Fashionable, Comfortable, Rugged, Great Value
Yes, I recommend this product.
