Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories welcome to our review of the Bell SOLFX transitions face shield now this is a photo-chromatic face shield. What does that mean, that's means it actually detects UV rays and it reacts to them and actually gets darker as it is exposed to sunlight, that is a great concept that's going to work whether its night time dark conditions all the way to a bright sunny day like we have here out here in South Carolina so were actually going to demo this for you well show you how well it works how quickly it changes . Your going to want to watch this video were going to throw this on the Bell Star that we have here but briefly this shield will work on just about any current full faced Bell with the exception of the Bell Arrow, so that means if you have a Vortex an RS1 or even the Revolver Modular helmet or the Bell Star The transitions SOLFX will work on that helmet that's also great news for you that think you are upgrading to the RS1 or the Star maybe down the road if you have a Vortex now you can look at the SOLFX shield and consider it because it will actually work with the Bell Star also so a really great thing that bell did there with allowing you to port your old shield over to your new helmet , that's definitely nice not trying to nickle and dime you on a shield every time you want to get a Bell helmet. So this is the SOLFX face shield it looks just like a normal clear face shield right now. Like i said it actually reacts to UV rays it will actually darken up to the point of a dark smoke visor and whats nice about it is it will actually stay anywhere in between it will either be fully dark black smoke or fully clear or a light smoke or any version in between, in fact when you have this on the helmet you cant really tell to be honest you cant really tell that its doing anything it just kind of stays perfect and that's a real testimate to how well it works its imperceivable when you have it on because it just kinda changes seamlessly as your riding and changes adapts to conditions so your eyes stay nice and comfortable throughout your ride so that's great news if your a commuter and your rides take you from day time conditions to night conditions you don't have to bring a second shield with you or if your on a long trip and your dealing with all different types of weather and riding at night and day this is going to work great anytime of the day or night so definitely really nice so throw it on the Bell Star here take it outside and show you how well it actually works. We'll show you how to change a face shield on a bell if your not familiar , its got the quick release system honestly one of the easiest systems on the market. Trigger on the side give it a pull and it pops right out , so it doesn't get much easier then that to change out face shields. We'll go ahead and throw the SOLFX shield on there just line up the tab at the top give it a press and it clicks you'll be ready to go and again the nice thing about this shield is you don't have to swap it out its just going to be the shield that's on your helmet so great great shield. Lets take it out side and see how long it takes from totally clear which is what we have right now to dark smoke. Alright so were going to go from totally clear to completely dark it should take about 30 sec or so , now you can probably see my face through the face shield and it will take about 30 seconds to get completely dark. So if you cant tell its darkening up to where my eyes are not straining at all just a few seconds from completely clear to dark smoke and then it will transition back when you go into lighter conditions or darker conditions now if you go under some trees or into a tunnel its going to be adjusting constantly and like i said it takes about 30 sec or so to go from clear to totally dark and looks great and looks like a dark smoke face shield so if you have a matte black helmet like this it looks really good. Alright so i just brought this thing in from outside and you can tell it has a nice dark tint to the visor now we just brought it in and set it on the table and its been out in the sun for about 5 minutes now so we had it really nice and dark were going to see how long it takes to actually lighten up you should start to be able to see the Bell logo though the top. One thing i will mention is this shield is treated to obviously to be UV protective so its not going to be letting UV in and hurting your eyes but it also has an anti scratch coating on it and their nutritive coating it does have the anti fog coating on the shield as well which works well with cold or wet weather conditions. You can see that going from the dark smoke all the way to the clear sitting here you might think "wow its taking a while " the only time that's really an issue is if you are riding from extremely bright conditions and you go right into total darkness of a tunnel and its not going to be able to keep up with that immediately , but you know if your typically riding with the normal dark smoke visor anyways you would have that same problem but worse this ones going to be lightening up as you ride through. Some times i've gone through tunnels Ive had to open my visor to be able to see well. This one is going to be lightening up as soon as you go through the tunnel and then obviously when you get to the other side it starts darkening again. Another thing that i have noticed while playing with this shield is it does seem that it darkens faster then it lightens going from indoors to outside you know about 30 seconds and then in about 15 or so seconds it has enough tint on it where its not super bright but obviously going from dark smoke to totally clear its going to take a little while. Keep in mind though if you are doing commuting or long distance type trip when your riding with this thing as the day progresses the suns going down there's less UV out there so its actually already going to be lightening up as the sun goes down and then its going to turn to totally clear once the sun goes down all the way so its more of a gradual thing again you typically don't notice the only time you'll run into "oh that's too dark " is when its a sudden transition from super bright to dark which like i said you wont be facing that anyway. Ill go ahead and take the shield off here so you can see how much tint is left on it you can see its pretty much all clear now , its kind of hard to tell against a black helmet here but totally clear again and ready for another day of riding again about 120 bucks jump on our website check out our current pricing and availability very big seller if your a Bell Helmet wearer the RS-1 the Vortex or the Star i definitely recommend this even though its over 100 dollars its well worth it.
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.

    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.
