This is my second Bell Evo. I am still using my first one that I've had for several years but it is getting a bit shabby. The new one that I bought still needs a little breaking in as it has a couple of minor pressure points as did my old one when I first got it. I have to admit that the graphics on the new one influenced my decision to choose it. This model of Bell is not as comfortable as Arai or Shoie but is much less expensive. The only reason I didn't give more excellent ratings is that I know that the more expensive helmets that I have are more comfortable. However, can't beat this Bell flip up for the money.

Although I haven't had as much time as I would like to use this helmet I have full confidence in recommending it. I also have a regular Bell Vortex with the flying tiger graphic scheme, so I have that to compare it with, as well as a current Shoe RF-1100. I wish I had discovered this helmet sooner. It is extremely feature rich. The flip up modular function is new to me, but really adds a lot of versatility. Besides the outer shield, which is also availlable in several optional tint schemes this helmet features an easy to use flip down tinted eye shield. I have found this to work extremely well and allows me to have the benefit of a tinted shield in bright conditions that easily flips up out of the way when its darker. This flip up shield is also completely useable while the front modular shell is flipped up. Talk about unbeatible versatility, this is it! The helmet fits true to size (mine is a size large) and is easy to put on and features the magnetic flapping strap restraint like the Bell Vortex helmet. The venting is quite adequate, and I expected more wind noise with a modular design. But Bell has done something right, because the from the wind noise - you'd never know it was a modular design. It's also not noticably more drafty than a conventional full face in colder weather, which I think is a huge plus. It looks and feels like a high quality product with outstanding graphics, and feels like it shoud be a much more expensive product.
Love the built in sunglasses
Love the modular helmet
Love the style of the helmet
Over all an ok helmet but poor quality the magnet that is used to keep helmet fastener from flapping in the wind fell off in first use of the helmet , the rubber on the front chin pad also fell off shortly after purchase
The helmet is very noisy almost need ear plugs at speeds above 70 MPH
I love the modular helmet for what it is and continue to use it because I like the features , no need to carry sunglasses that give you sore ears and headache from squeezing under the helmet , excellent to lift up helmet to have a conversation without havering to take helmet off , nice removable liner to wash
I would highly recommend looking into several before you buy and find one that is rated quiet as I was not aware that noise is a common problem with modular helmets
I like the helmet, but will have to donate it to my son. Even though I bought a XXL, it is still too small - must be a Bell thing.
I wasn't originally going to buy a modular helmet, but after talking to a few other riders they seemed more convenient to use. Bell does one thing and does it well, which is why I decided to buy from them. They are also a great value. I didn't feel like paying more than double the price for a Shoei either.
The helmet fits great and is very comfortable. Just follow the size chart and you should be fine. It looks just as slick as a normal full face, but if you need to itch your face or are just hot waiting at a red light just pull up the front rather than taking off the entire helmet.
Motosport was great too as they seem to be one of the few companies that will exchange a helmet, not that I needed to. The shipping was fast and customer service e-mailed me back within the hour to answer some questions before I purchased anything.
