I have had this for about a year. If you ride to work in the dark and ride home when it's bright, you need this. forget about carrying around that extra shield. Have you ever been caught in the rain with only your dark smoke visor? Never again with this. The visor tints based on the brightness outside. It will be perfectly tinted in all situations. It gets very close to as dark as the dark smoke. I also own the dark smoke visor. I never put it on after I got this one.

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 Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Five-year warranty Weight 1600g Certification Snell M2010, DOT Please Note Helmet ships with clear faceshield only. 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 have the matte black color and have been riding in it for about a year and a half. The helmet is very well built. It feels of quality. Shield operation is smooth and changes are very easy. the liner is comfortable and easy to remove to clean. With all the vents open you will keep cool in the summer. there is great flow due to the air channels and exhaust design. The matte black marks easily. The transition face shield is an excellent addition.
