Bell Vortex Flying Tiger Helmet The Flying Tiger pays homage to the 1st American Volunteer Group, a fighter group protecting China during World War II. Sporting elements of the Tigers' shark-faced fighter planes and the distinctive Flying Tiger insignia created by Disney, this helmet is a slice of history. Part of the Bell Vortex Helmet series the Flying Tiger posses a lot of features and functions you don't normally see in a helmet at this price point. The Vortex borrows heavily from its big brother, the Star, giving you a complete package at a killer price. 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 NutraFog II superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield Five-year warranty Weight 1600g Certification Snell M2010, DOT Please Note Helmet comes with clear faceshield Note Helmet may come with either the magnetic strap keeper or standard chin strap snaps

I am very happy with this helmet. The internal shape is definitely slanted more towards being oval. The interior removes easily and is decently comfortable, sadly it is not as comfortable as an RS-1 or Star, both of which are on a level I've never seen in another helmet. Cut outs for helmet speakers are a nice addition, also my glasses seem to fit rather well, although it is quite snug to get them in. Fit and finish is great, although on the Flying Tiger model, it has a matte finish so is rather thin. The airflow is great, a brow vent really does make a huge difference. Finally, the shield mechanism is 2nd to none. I highly recommend over others in this price range.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this helmet to use as a backup to my Icon Alliance. I have since been using it more regularly than my Icon actually.
The interior is comfortable, and like the icon, it seems to fit well for a more rounded head shape. The chin straps however can sometimes be a little irritating to your neck and slipping the helmet on can feel a little scratchy, but otherwise very comfortable. Also for me it has ample room to wear my glasses in the helmet as well. The windnoise is rather high like most in the $100-$200 range. Airflow is great. It comes with a clear and a smoked shield, both of which are very optically correct, and removing the shield is quick and easy. The light bar (with optional included smoked lens) on the back is a nice touch. I ordered the green/white/black helmet. I am not usually a fan of designs on helmets but it is very attractive and the green is a very close match to Kawasaki green. I have received a few compliments on its looks as well.
Overall, this is a good helmet with nice features. The fit and finish of the shell is a little hit or miss, like flashing on the insides and openings of vents, but they make no impact on performance. For a helmet in the price range and even up to $200 or so, I can definitely recommend it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
