Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories today I am going to talk to you about the Bell Vortex helmet. This helmet starts at about 179 dollars for the solids and graphics and they also make the Rolland Sands design graphics for 199. I think that you will find that these helmets give you a lot of bang for your buck. A lot of helmets in this price range don't come with all the features that the Vortex has, a lot of 3-400 dollar helmets don't come with all the features the Vortex has. We have been really impressed with the Bell Helmet line up and lets go ahead and dig into the Vortex and I will show you what it all has. On the outside of this helmet you will see that it has a really nice aerodynamic shape. This is designed for all types of riding, its not a super aggressive track helmet but it is Snell 2010 approved so if you are doing the occasional track day that's going to work. Bell designs these in house in California and they get to wind tunnel test them and they even have a hydro tunnel which is basically a water tunnel, where they test the aerodynamics of the helmet. The first thing you will notice about this helmet is you will notice it has a lot of vents which is not found on the helmets in this price range. You have two chimney vents on the top which are closeable it is going to direct air down on to the top of your head. You have a brow vent which is also closeable that's definitely something you don't see a lot of in this price range. You have a chin bar vent which is going to help keep your face shield defogged. At the back of the helmet you also have exhaust vents, two at the top and two at the base of the helmet. What those do as air flows over to the back of the helmet the area behind the helmet is going to suck the warm air right out the back of the helmet. One of our favorite things about the Bell helmet line up is their shield system, its definitely one of the easiest shields to swap out, its just basically two triggers on the side and you just push those and the shield comes right off. All the way to the Bell Star they use the same shield. Your getting the same shields that they used on their high end racing helmets. They also make a shield with transition technology. Which is basically when the shield adjusts with the UV rays so if you want to just have one shield that automatically goes from light to dark or clear to dark that is a really neat option as well. This helmet is poly-carbonate, if you look at the bottom of this helmet one thing that they have on this helmet that you don't see from a lot of manufacturers is this wind collar that goes around the base of the helmet. What that is going to do is heat unwanted wind from coming up inside the helmet that may cause a lot of wind noise. You have a chin curtain as well to keep air from coming underneath the helmet. The inside of this helmet is lined with a moisture wicking anti bacterial anti microbial liner. This will keep you a lot more comfortable if you are sweating and it also removable if you want to wash the helmet. We will go ahead an pull out these cheek pads and one thing you will notice about these cheek pads is they have this mesh material and this is for speakers. Bell has actually built little recess in the side of the helmet for speakers if you want to run a communication system. You can install a bluetooth headset you can install anything with speakers that will fit in the helmet. Another cool thing about the Bell helmets is the magnetic chin strap. This is called their magna fusion system. They have tried to make the lining with a lot of mesh material and air channels so you have good ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable on the inside of the helmet. If you look at the inside of the helmet you can see a lot of those channels actually for the ventilation. That is the overview of the Bell Vortex, it is a great helmet and you can go to compacc.com to check them out.

    Solid - Jeff   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Nice, safe and snug fit, great looks, better air flow than other helmets I've had, light, smooth aerodynamics and great value for such a low price.
    Cons: None.

    Great value for the price. This is a very fine, well fitting helmet. I always get a large and have worn several brands HJC, KBC, Shoei X11, Gmax and Suomy to name a few.I've read some reviews about this helmet being loudnoisy, etc. I always wear earplugs from wal-mart, the spongy soft ones you roll up because I learned early, if you don't wear plugs that I will get an ear infection. This helmet has about the same sound or noise as any other helmet I've worn. I ride about 10,000year on basically crotch rocket type bikes with little or no screenshield so my head gets lots of forced air. I'm also 6'2 and 205lbs and sit up high enough to get my share of wind. I also go on a 4,000 to 6,000 mile trip each summer either to or over the rockies from east central Illinois. I feel all helmets are noisy if you don't wear earplugs. Jeff

    Very nice head gear - Nocman2   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Competes with my Shoei RF1100, nice neck roll, comfortable
    Cons: Cant think of any

    I bought this helmet to replace my wife's starter helmet. It was a great affordable upgrade that provides the safety benefits we were looking for. I was out to get her a Shoei RF 1100 just like mine, but found this one instead. Nice helmet, I'd buy it again

    good buy - breeze   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: inexpensive, comfortable, good airflow, well made.
    Cons: [None]

    I bought this for a track day. I neded a full face helmet for Cal. Superbike school, and didnt plan on using it much. But with its Snell rating and good reviews, thought id try it. Worked great, visor was clear and stayed shut at 140 speeds, with ear pluugs it didnt sound any louder than any other lid. Comfortable, my head is a 22 14, right between a SM..the Medium was a perfect fit. The airflow was good, lots of vents that worked in hot southern weather. it comes with a hetmet bag, nose and chin valance. Lot of helmet for the money. It even looks pretty good. You cant tell its a low end lid unless you look real close..I have had a bunch of 3-400 lids, and other than finish, is just as nice and has all the same features of higher ones.. hope this helps

    solex shield - Lynbiker   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes

    Bell Transitions SOLFX - SV650 Rider   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Convinient, fast tint
    Cons: Not dark enough

    I love having the auto tinting feature. No messing around with shields and you get as much tint as needed for what ever light condition. The only thing I wish could be changed was it getting a little darker. During sunrise and sunset the direct sun light is pretty bright. Any other time of the day it is fantastic. The way I counter that is just to keep my head tipped down a little bit. Great product.

    Bell Vortex - SV650 Rider   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Price, Comfortable, air flow, SNELL2010I race cars
    Cons: A little noisy, three big Bell logos

    When I measured my head I was kind of between a medium and large size. I went with the large and glad I did. It fit pretty snug when I first got it. After a short time the cheek pads relaxed a bit and the helmet fits comfortably snug. I did start to notice more wind noise after though. The chin strap slack uses a magnet instead of a snap. My other riding friend is jealous of that.

    Great Value - RS   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Value
    Cons: None

    I purchase a silver model on sale. The fit was perfect but you should use the chart from the Bell site for this helmet vs. the one on this site. The sizing is different. The quality is much better than expected and the only negative is the clip on the provided helmet bag broke the first time used which is not a big deal. The best value on a quality Snell 2010 helmet.

    Awesome sheild - Rvelvetj   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: It does everything well. It's crystal clear all the time and from every angle. You don't even notice it dimming, at some point you just realize that you aren't ever squinting.
    Cons: None

    Install couldn't be easier. Optics couldn't be clearer. Transitions plenty fast for the real world.

    So Nice...buy it - tHawk   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: No sunglasses required
    Cons: Change is not instant

    One of the reasons I purchased the Bell RS1 was for the capability of upgrading to the SOLFX shield. I could not be happier. Shades your face when needed, no distortion, hasn't scratched with normal use and works just like the video says. The only con And this is a stretch being the transition. If you are going in and out of tunnels or something similar. It's not going to keep up, no big deal on my part. All of this said, I still find myself wearing my sunglasses with it sometimes. It's summer and it's hot so I frequently pop up the shield while driving to cool off.I have had no issue with wearing sun glasses and the SOLFX at the same time. I would buy again and would recommend it to anyone. Very happy

    Great Purchase - akabobo   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent clarity, easy install, no more changing shields
    Cons: None so far

    I am a rider coming off a long hiatus and wish they had these when I started riding. They do exactly what they're supposed to do. I can see where riding into the sun, you might need additional protection because this is not a super dark shield, but for day to day riding around, this is exceptional.

    This review is for Bell Vortex Helmet - Replacement Top Pads
    Great stuff. - WaynoJ   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great price.
    Cons: None

    As my Bell Vortex gets a lot of use I ride pretty much every day, it only took about 8 months for the fit to loosen up enough that the face-shield got pushed into my face at freeway speeds. New cheek pads solved this problem. Great stuff. At 20 a set you can't beat it. Another 20 for a new top pad and I basically have a new helmet for 40 bucks.


    This review is for Bell Vortex Helmet - Replacement Cheek Pads
    Good stuff. - WaynoJ   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Comes in many sizes to fine-tune for your head size.
    Cons: None

    As my Bell Vortex gets a lot of use I ride pretty much every day, it only took about 8 months for the fit to loosen up enough that the face-shield got pushed into my face at freeway speeds. New cheek pads solved this problem, and since they come in various sizes, I was able to get a set one size larger than stock for an even tighter fit. Great stuff. At 20 a set you can't beat it. Another 20 for a new top pad and I basically have a new helmet.

    It really works - Stevo   AL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: changes fast, fog resistant, durable against scratches
    Cons: Not dark enough when sun is low at eye level

    This shield works as well as prescription eyeglasses, transition lenses. It changes fast and is uniform throughout. Is completely clear at night and somehow, seems better than a regular clear shield at night. I have used it alot at night. It is also very fog resistant. With the application of Scotts anti fog cleaner, it just will not fog at all. It is expensive, but you do get what you pay for in this shield.

    worth the price - rijiline   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Clear Vision, Tints Quickly, Un-Tints Quickly
    Cons: None

    Yes, this item is expensive but it is well worth it. I had a dark smoke shield and when the sun went down, forget it, could hardly see the cars headlights. But during the day in Florida, you can't go with a clear shield, just too sunny. This shield quickly tints in the sunlight. It seems that it is actually easier to see through then my other Shoei shields I have. There is no distortion. I would highly recommend having one of these.

    All Face Shields Should be Transitions - VJS   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: No need to carry a clear sheild for night riding.
    Cons: pricey, but worth every penny.

    This is the greatest face shield ever. I bought this one for my wife because I like mine so much. All face shields should be transitions. Carrying extra shields takes up valuable storage space on the bike and they tend to get scratched up no matter how careful you are. With the self-tinting shield, one doesn't have to stop at dusk to change out shields. Combined with the Bell Revolver, a great ride

    So Cool - Paul   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Not too dark, looks awesome.
    Cons: You look TOO cool, makes people jealous.

    I have a Bell Star Matte Black helmet and I just purchased the dark smoke screen. It looks so awesome I can't even tell you. Rode it to work this morning and it was a little overcast with some slight sunlight here and there and it wasn't too dark at all. It does a nice job of shading the sun, but not so much that you can't see. Plus you look super bad a. It's a great visor clicks in easy and I carry my clear visor with me in the OGIO tail bag that I just bought from Compacc just in case it gets too dark out.

    I bought one of these for my now discontinued Spirit helmet.Its great.Plenty dark out in the sun. I wear glasses so I dont have to mess with my clipons as much.In cold weather it does'nt get as dark but I think it was well worth the price. I wish they were available for every helmet.

    I ordered this shield with my Bell Vortex Helmet. It works great. I used to have 2 shields with my HJC and had to stop and change it when it got dark. Now the shield changes constantly and I can always see... Plus it gets surprisingly dark when the sun is really bright... I am not sure how I lived without it before now...

    Great Deal - iamoldschool   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great features and fit. Well worth the price.
    Cons: Noisy

    I picked this up to give me a full face option for my Goldwing. For me, Bell has always been synonomous with the quality helmets. For the price this helmet is being offered at on closeout, I couldn't go wrong. Ventilation is superb, fit and finish are amazing and comfort is there in buckets once the cheek pads get broken in. I did have to ding it one star for the noise. Just wear earplugs, as you should be anyway, the the noise will become a non-issue.

    Bell Vortex Helmet - Tommy   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Snell approved, shield system, ventilation, fit, styling
    Cons: Big, LOUD

    For the price, the Bell Vortex is a steal. All the features included in this mid-range helmet make it a great choice for anyone who doesn't want to spend the money to move up to an aria or a shoei. My only big complaint is the noise level. There are two tiny exhaust ports low on the back of the helmet that create an enormous amount of wind noise inside the helmet. Throw in some earplugs and you have a great helmet at an amazing price.

    Good Fit - Jack Creevy   NH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good fit and very stable.
    Cons: The right side hinge plate that holds the face shield in place broke the first time I removed the shield

    All in all I am pleased with this helmet. Could not believe the price for such a quality piece of equipment. Because it was silver for some reason it was 100.00 less than the other Vortex helmets. I do have one complaint however in that the brow vent allows so much air in that after about an hour my forehead starts to hurt really bad. Tried closing all of the vents but, air still gets in. I was able to reduce this quite a bit by removing the top liner and plugging the holes with foam insulation and then reinstalling the liner. Never did I ever think I would complain about a helmet that flows to much air. Now I love this helmet.

    Nice Helmet - JohnK   MN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good price, good value, comfortable
    Cons: On the loud side

    My last two helmets have been Arai and I was really happy with them. I needed a new helmet but wanted to save some money so I decided to give Bell a try. I am pretty impressed. The price is great and the quality is very good. The helmet is very comfortable and has good ventilation. My only complaint is the same as other reviewers. It is loud, especially at highway speeds. But I am happy with the purchase.

    Great deal on a very good helmet - Scrappy McStuffins The Wonder Cat   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Value, Visor RemovalReplacement, Fit
    Cons: Noise

    I bought this as a replacement for my old Vortex that was getting pretty worn out. This one was on clearance, so I picked it up when I saw the deal they had. I think it is easily worth the full price, but at the clearance price, it was a no-brainer.Before the prior Vortex, I wore an Arai Profile, which is significantly more expensive, but not so much better than the Vortex to justify the price difference.I find the Vortex is very comfortable, Keep in mind that the padding will break in quite a bit, so make sure you get a tight fit. It will feel too tight for the first month, but that is what you want.As far as noise...it is noisier than the Arai Profile I wore, but with earplugs which you should be wearing anyway, the noise is not bothersome at all to me. I read some of the recommendations on blocking the vents behind the ear and tried that with my new Vortex. Not sure if it made that big of a difference.Also, I use a Sena SMH-10 and it fits just fine on this helmet using the clamp.

    very cool - Travis   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: changes tint... duh
    Cons: not dark enough

    I don't think it gets dark enough. I had a dark smoke shield on my last helmet and in full sunlight this shield doesn't get as dark.If you are riding through variable light beforeafter sunrisesunset then it's definitely worth it. And overall I'm still happy I got it. The fully dark mode is fine, it's just that in Texas I ride in full sun most of the time, so I'd like it to be a little darker.

    Pros: The fit is good, it flows a lot of air
    Cons: A little noisy

    I'm liking my Vortex. It flows a lot more air than my old Scorpion. I do notice more noise, and may have to start wearing ear plugs. The size runs true to my hat size, and it fits well and is very comfortable.

    Transition shield for the Bell helmet - Day Rider   CT Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Outstanding optical clarity. Excellent transition from no tint to very dark tint in the sun..
    Cons: No UV protection like other shields.

    This product does the job as advertised.. But what I did not know is that the shield has no UV protection.. I had my personal glasses on and with the shield closed my glasses went dark too. This does not happen with my other shields, which is one of the reasons I got a transition shield. I will have to use sun screen if I am going to be out all day..

    Nice shield but some boob decided to attach an adhesive backed Transitions sticker to the front of it. Why couldn't. they use a static vinyl sticker, a molded in brand, or at least put it someplace outside of the clearview area DaftNot acceptable for a 120 face shield.

    SOLFX Shield - ZZR 1200 TX   TX Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Easy to remove
    Cons: Expensive, fogs, turns to very light smoke only.

    My shield does not work as advertised. Only a very light smoke tint at best even in midday sun. Also, anit-fog feature does not work either. If bright sunlight makes you squint, you need a real tinted shield or wear sunglasses with this one. And at the price of this shield, you can buy 2 or 3 other shields. Also, had to use plastic polish to remove adhesive from label that was attached to shield. Complete waste of money, in my opinion.

    Pros: Convenient
    Cons: Short lived

    I was excited about this product and ordered it for use here in Florida. It worked wellat first but after the first year, it became less effective in darkening. Now, 3 years later, it does not darken at all.
