Bell Qualifier DLX - Rally Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
Not a Clanger.
A nice lid for a reasonable price. This is my second Bell albeit a slightly less expensive one than my current Daytona. This shows in the feel and quality of the detachable internal piece that sits in front of your mouth / nose and the D rings. Those are only minor points as I found the fit to be perfect and the weight to be lighter than most bog standard helmets. The visor is the real selling point here though, it worked supremely well in the low setting sun over Brands Hatch and on the way home on the dark M25. A real plus point for this product. Wind noise was what you would expect from a helmet designed for the race track. Great service from superbikeshop as always. Overall I would recommend this product and Sportsbikeshop.
Great looking helmet, and comfortable too. Transitions visor really good. Couple of downsides: It is more noisy than I was expecting (fixed with earplugs), and one of the air vents on top rattles (I'll drop in a bit of superglue to fix that).
Fantastic looking /quality helmet, especially for the price! Brought for my girlfriend and arrived next day. Fits very well (she was the larger of the XS size chart) Only downside is there isnt enough padding on the to of the helmet so after 30 mins or so it starts to hurt. Should be an easy fix however!
Nice helmet but be aware of sizing.
The helmet is a really smart helmet and looks great, is very comfortable and the adaptive visor is awesome. Be aware of sizing, the helmet fitted snug but after an hour of using it the lining gave loads causing the helmet to become very loose, meaning id need a size smaller because of this. Becuase the helmet is ow 'used' sports bike shop wouldn't do anything. So i purchased a small and have to sell the other helmet privately. If it wasn't for this the helmet rating would be a 4 star only becuase of noise levels at motorway speeds which isn't bad but could be better. However at the price it is its certainly awesome.
Item delivered quickly and in perfect condition. Overall the quality is very good and Transitions visor is fantastic. Visor does not have Pin-lock capability (although can be drilled for fitment) but not found the need for this. Quick release strap and visor lock would be the only downside but fantastic value for money and would definitely recommend this helmet.
Back to Bell
I first had a Bell helmet way back in 1976. I've had many different makes along the years. Decided to try Bell again and I'm not disappointed, it's still a quality product for the money you are paying. So if you are in the market for a good bike helmet give Bell a try.
Quality qualifier from Bell
Just done a 600 mile round trip to the Isle of skye with this new lid and I'm very impressed with it. Not only is it a perfect fit, it's a lot lighter than my old one and comes with a transition visor. (Think they retail about a ton) doesn't squash my lugs or press against my forehead, quality helmet from Bell. I would recommend this lid (and have) to anyone who's thinking about one. Good thing is, sportsbikesHOP returns are ace if it's not for you. Try before you buy :-)
An exercise in perseverance eventually pays off!
Buying a helmet on-line can be tricky, especially if switching brands. Tried two budget helmets based on glowing reviews but was ultimately very disappointed with both. Returned to a Bell helmet (I've owned a few) and the fit and comfort suits me perfectly. The light-reactive visor is the stand out feature of this helmet. Its brilliant in sunny or dark conditions. Wind noise is no better or worse than other (premium) helmets I've owned - ventilation works well and wind buffet seems better than my outgoing Arai helmet. The only disappointment, which I discovered after purchasing the helmet, is it only has a 3 star SHARP safety rating - the first Bell helmet to score so low. Would suggest SportsBikeShop feature all SHARP safety ratings with their helmets - as a reference point, if nothing else. But a big thumbs up to SportsBikeShop for making my returns a quick and effortless affair. I will certainly shop here again.
