Don't judge a helmet by it's price.

Comments about Bell Vortex Flack White Full Face Helmet 2013:
I bought the Bell for nostalgic reasons and thought the keep it as a second helmet. I had been using Arai and shoe helmets for the last 20 years and was happily surprised to find the comfort was there from the moment I put on the helmet. I ride a sports bike and find I get no room between the jacket collar and back of my old helmet for ease of movement, it's only just a tiny little pressure but it can lead to a little stiffness in the neck after a few hours of riding ,but not with the Bell, it leaves some extra space so I find I'm not rubbing the back of my helmet on my collar now.The Bell is also noticeably lighter than my Arai. It is easy to find the clip that stops the strap flapping about and is easy to undo and do up the helmet strap. I purchased the tinted visor and fitting it was a breeze, Sooo simple.Air vents are good and easy to use while riding once you get to know the positions.Not to impressed with the wind noise. Had hoped it would be much quieter, even with the vents closed it's not noticeably quieter.Short runs are fine but you had better get use to riding any sort of distance with ear plugs in.All in all a great helmet for the money.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought a Bell about 7 years ago and had to replace it after a crash at the track. Then I was convinced by a friend to get a Scorpion EXO1000 helmet. I could not wait for the 5 year period to go by so I could get another Bell. The fit and finish is far superior and the airflow is so good you can actually feel it work. Also the anti-fog works great. I own two other helmets from different makers and the Bell just feels like it is twice as expensive with far superior design. To change the visor is also super easy. I would not ever buy a different brand name helmet again.
