Item Description

Bell Vortex Torn Helmet

The new Bell Vortex is every bit the helmet you’d expect of the Star’s little brother. Developed in Bell’s state-of-the-art Santa Cruz, Calif. design center, the Vortex borrows heavily from the Star, using its Velocity Flow Ventilation™ with FlowAdjust™ for amazing ventilation and temperature control, as well as ClickRelease-the reigning world champ in shield ease-of-use. The lightweight polycarbonate shell is molded into a stable, wind cutting shape, and comfort is in no short supply with contoured cheek pads and a plush removable comfort liner. Finish it off with a noise reducing wind collar and integrated speaker pockets and you have a complete package at a killer price.

Features:
  • Velocity Flow Ventilation™ system with FlowAdjust™ for maximum stability and temperature control with minimal noise and buffeting
  • Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell
  • Contour cheek pads (by means of stacked foam, not hand cut)
  • Removable and washable, antibacterial/antimicrobial interior comfort liner
  • Padded Wind collar to drastically reduce wind/road noise
  • Integrated speaker pockets for audio speakers
  • ClickRelease™ for the fastest, easiest, tool-free shield swaps ever
  • NutraFog II™ superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield
  • Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper
  • Five-year warranty
  • Certification: Snell, DOT
**Note: Helmet shown with optional tinted shield. Clear shield included.

Great Helmet

This helmet fits great on my round head. I wear an XL and it fits like one. The graphics and features for this helmet are quality considering the price point. I only gave it a 4 on airflow due to it being very loud on the highway. The visor locks solid even at highway speed, and I LOVE the magnet at the end of the chin strap, way easier than a snap.

Amazing helmet for the price!!!

I have been through a fair share of helmets Arai, Shoei, Akuma, Icon, etc...but the finish and quality of this helmet are excellent. Not to mention the amazingly low price. Of course it could have things like an internal visor and sturdier vent locks but for what you pay, this is as good as it gets. This helmet is honestly comparable to 300/400 hundred dollar helmets! Great buy.

Great Helmet...After Some Modding

First of all, the finish is superb and the fit is true to size. The shield doesn't fog while moving or at a red light. The only problem I found is the terrible noise the helmet makes when riding above 30mph. But as said before, if you tape up the rear exhaust port next to the ear it eliminates most of the noise. Pretty quiet helmet after a lil mod.

Very niiiice

I really like riding with this helmet. The medium fits perfectly with my chubby cheeks very snug. Comfort while wearing is very good except, as noted in other reviews, it is loud with the vents open.

Looks great, Fits great. But the wind noise WTF

I just got the Bell helmet, a friend had a bell for a long time. He called me on the phone, I thought he was home, not on his bike at 75mph. It was so quiet, I had to get one. My last helmet had noise with wind at speed. When I got my Bell, the fit was very good, and the looks are nice. But as soon as I hit the road to work the wind noise was more than my old helmet. I read a review from someone else that got this also, and they blocked the exhaust on the back of it with tape. I will try it to. Hope it works till summer. The main reason for the new helmet was to be quiet WTF, other than that it’s great, and the air does not blow in your face or eyes.

Released before it was ready?

The fit on this helmet is good for a long/intermediate oval head such as mine. Fit is similar to Shark rsr2 but not quite as snug at the ears/cheekbones. The liner cushioning is good but the liner cover material seems thin and is not as plush feeling as others. The helmet is designed with ear pockets for speakers and has plenty of room for them. Exterior finish is good and the vents open/close positively, venting from the brow vent is notably good. I gave it some low marks due to the excessive noise levels. The noise comes from the two lower rear exhaust vents and can be totally cancelled by covering them with tape. While this works, I would think that they would've researched the noise levels better. It is so loud in unmodified form that it not only drowns out the speakers I installed, but is literally painful. It is more than an annoyance, earplugs are REQUIRED in this helmet. (after 15 miles in the helmet I stopped and purchased ear plugs from a hardware store on my way to work) This happens on both my un-faired bike and my dual sport. Bottom line: I would not purchase this helmet again.
