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.

    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

    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.

    Bell Vortex - upnorthdoug   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: works will in summer and winter
    Cons: [None]

    I own 2 Vortex Helmets. I use them in all seasons. I bought the Snow Shield Kit for winter snowmobile riding. The helmets fit our heads well and are very comfortable.

    Bell Vortex - Tim   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Style, Function, Price
    Cons: None

    Great helmet for the price, everything functions as advertised

    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.

    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.

    Bell Vortex Helmet - Mademma   WI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Nice looking, fits well, and keeps my head warm in the cold.
    Cons: [None]

    This is my first helmet and I am pleased with it. Glad I bought it and would do so again.

    Bell Vortex - Carl in NC   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    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.
