I'm the only one on the island!
It's been some time since I purchased a helmet. The technology has come a long way in my lifetime. This helmet is a real head turner. Aside from the coolest graphics on the planet I think bell has a real winner here. I wear it every day in puerto Rico so I have to take my head gear serious. For the price I'm shocked at the quality, this bell is built as good as my Shoei that set me back more than twice the price. Really sweet helmet!

PROS: Fits Snug, Adequate Ventilation

LOOKS MEAN AND COMFORTABLE!
USED IT GOING FOR AN AVERAGE 75MPH AT A TEMP OF 45-50 DEGREES. SO FAR, DOESN'T FOG BUT YOU GET SOME CONDENSATION WHILE STANDING. WORN IT CONTINOUSLY FOR 2 HOURS, VERY COMFORTABLE. LOVE THE DESIGN!! BY FAR ONE OF THE COOLEST HELMETS I EVER OWNED,I CAN ACTUALLY OPEN MY MOUTH WITHOUT MY CHEECKS FEELING LIKE THEY ARE BEEN SQUEEZED BY YOUR MOTHER. I WSH IT WAS QUIETER BUT THE NOISE IS NOT A DEAL BREAKER. I ALREADY STARTED RECOMMENDING THIS HELMET TO MY FRIENDS.

Vortex - Great Helmet Design!
Awesome helmet I've had for over two years. If you read the other forums, people were putting tape over the ear holes inside, That's where your noise is coming from. I used RTV clear sealant and filled the earholes from the outside and smoothed off the plug with a toothpick. Problem Solved! You can still hear with the helmet on, but the whistling and the wind noise is gone!

PROS: Adequate Ventilation, Good Visibility, Comfortable Padding, Fits Snug

CONS: Noisy

BEST USES: Racing, Everyday Rides, Protection

Great helmet
Great helmet. The fit is a little too snug but that's only because my head size is between sizes. Graphics are awesome, visibility is great, and it does not feel heavy.

Matched my bike
The fit was awesome and very comfortable, a little loud at speed but not too bad. Delivered on time made me happy also.

Great looking helmet
As others have said, it is a bit of a loud helmet (wind noise comes in through ear vents), but i tend to have earbuds in while riding so this does not affect me. I have heard of some plugging one side or the other of the ear vents to alleviate the noise. Fit is spot on after a couple of wears (padding is thick and squishes down after it wears in) and it is comfortable. Love how the tiger shark mouth portion lines up with the visor... makes the mouth look more often.

Great Helmet But...
I'm always out riding my bike to the beach and then back home. I have to use the interstate and this helmet is great except that it is too noisy! I highly recommend riding with ear plugs in because it sounds like there is a fan with a loud whistle in your ear. It fits nicely, has great visibility, but, if Bell want a perfect helmet, the need to fix the wind noise. On a better note: I'm constantly getting looks and praise about the old school look of it!

PROS: Comfortable Padding, Fog Resistant, Fits Snug, Good Visibility, Adequate Ventilation, Lightweight

CONS: Noisy
