Bell MX & Street Vortex Torn Helmet,When I started in motorcycles in the 1970s, Bell helmets were the big deal. My first street helmet was a Bell Star. You saw Bells on motocrossers, street racers, and all over the road. Sometime in the '80s and '90s, Bell helmets lost their luster and their edge in the market. Bell has been working hard to rebuild their reputation and their customer base. The U.S.-based company is working to steal back wearers from the Japanese and Italian helmet manufacturers.

The Bell Vortex Torn Helmet is a nice addition to this rebuilding effort. The composite polycarbonate alloy shell was designed in the company's state-of-the-art design facility in California. The helmet is both Snell M2010 (the newest standard) and DOT certified. The ventilation has been designed to flow good air while reducing wind noise. Long-term wearers say that it is a relatively quiet helmet.

The shield change system is of the tool-less design -- a variation of the Shoei idea. The helmet has other nice features like a noise-reducing neck roll and integrated headphone pockets. It also includes an anti-fog and anti-scratch face shield. The helmet comes in three color variations and in sizes XS through 2XL.

It appears Bell helmets are back.
