Great buy for the price

Bought this helmet about 2 years ago, I'm a everyday rider, been a great helmet over all, good fit, not too heavy, visor design is awesome with a quick release for easy swap between clear and tinted shields. Only reason for 4 out 5, is the wind noise. I like to listen to music, but i tend to ride with the volume on the high side simply because of wind noise at higher speeds. Bonus is DOT and SNELL approved!

Very Sleek

Bought this as my first helmet. Love it. Bell did a very good job designing the flow of air through the inside of the helmet. A little snug like all the other reviews said. But well worth my money.

I also bought the smoke gray visor for an additional $40 and makes it look really cool.

Excellent

I originally purchased this use the Transitions Lens. I am extremely satisfied with this helmet! It fits well even after 2 years of use. The neck dam on the bottom helps keep cool air out in the winter and the heat it is tolerable in the summer. it weighs a little more than usual, but it is a solid helmet and I use this one more than my others. If you purchase this helmet, please get a Transitions lens as well!

Another good Bell product

This is a great helmet all around. I have a huge dome so for me I would say the XL is a bit snug. If in doubt go up one size which I would do but I don't think they have XXL.

Fantastic fot the price

Looks great fits amazingly well speaker pocket are nice makes room for a Bluetooth head set. Quick release face shields rock just don't get a race shield unless you need the tare offs at the track they gab the upper gasket so tight its tough to open and close (one finger adjustment wise that is) A little noisy at highway speed but not as noisy as suggested by another review I read. Awesome helmet for the price lots of cool art wort to choose from plenty of spare shields for different riding conditions ventilation system is next to perfect, as good or better than much more expensive helmet. Peace out with misspelled word!

Great Helmet at a Good Cost Point

I love this helmet. Great quality and a reasonable price compared to other brands. Good ventilation. Really nice how the visor comes off so easily. I don't really know about sizing. I previously had a Bell motocross helmet that was a large so I assumed I would take a large on a Bell street bike helmet and it does fit the same.

Awesome value in a Snell approved helmet

I waited to review this helmet until I had adequate time to ride with it. It fits slightly snug in the face cheek area, and I am thin. It is very comfortable to wear though. The vents open and close easily while worn. I've worn this helmet in temperatures down as low as about 38 degrees fahrenheit and I don't recommend using it below about 45 degree unless you tape the vents closed. There are 2 open exhaust vents in the rear of the helmet which do not close. It has rectangles rather than D rings for strap fastening, and I find them more cumbersome to unfasten. The extension tab to loosen the strap does work well enough though. I find the rectangular rings more cumbersome to connect to some bike helmet holders too and prefer a D ring design. The dangling strap hold down is magnetic, and is a great feature that is very quick and easy to use to prevent getting beat up by the unused length of the helmet strap when at speed. I wish more helmets had this magnetic system. The graphics are unique and very high quality in a flat finish for the Flying Tiger scheme. Top this off with Snell safety rating and it's really hard to find as good a value in a helmet anywhere near this price point anywhere. The shield system works great too. It's amazingly easy and fast to change shields without tools. And the availability of an optional photochromic shield that lightens in dark and darkens in sun is just awesome. The Bell Vortex is an awesome helmet value.

Great Helmet

First helmet and I love it. At first I didnt think I would get enough air flow while riding. Man was I wrong, the vents kept the cool air flowing through the helmet. Will buy another Bell helmet in a different color in the future.

Great Lid

This helmet is great, looks good, is very comfortable and holds up in the worst of times. i went down two weeks ago and when i got up from earning my road rash badge i was lucky to see my head was safe and had no scratches on my helmet, just my visor. great helmet, definitely recommend! Ride safe!

Good for the money but...

Size Chart said I needed a small but I should have gone with a medium however, I am still breaking in the helmet. The transition lens that I bought with this helmet is amazing so if you go with Bell PLEASE GET THIS LENS! My only real complaint about the helmet as it is insanely LOUD! I am an aircraft mechanic and am accustomed to being in a loud environment but this is a little much. Overall it is decent for the price.

Great helmet for the money

This is a terrific helmet for a moderate price. The face shield change system is the quickest and easiest I have ever encountered. Ventilation is great and easy to regulate. The sizing chart said I should use a "large" but I ended up needing an "extra-large" which is still a little snug. The fit is improving as I wear the helmet longer though. No fogging issues at all.

Q: Bell Vortex Helmet - Flying Tiger "Features"?
Over 3 years ago
Hi, I wanted to know what type of system does this helmet have for the Padded chin strap. Does it come with the special Features bell has "Exclusive Magnefusion magnetic strap keeper" or is it just a regular chin strap snap? I am asking this because i recently purchase this same helmet from a different vendor and it did not come with it. It was listed on their website also as a bell helmet Features. I want to be sure before i go ahead and purchase this one. thank you.
