Anybody have one of these?

Hey all, does anybody have one of these Bell Arrow Strafer Full Face Helmets? I was looking at upgrading and thought it had great graphics, but graphics dont protect your noggin! Anyone have one that can tell me how much noise it has or fitment?

Thanks Kid, that was what I was looking for, now the hard part is finding a retailer near me. I want to make damn sure I get the right fitment, My HJC I have now is getting loose and it worries me!

Thanks Rceezy, I will make that an important point to keep in mind. Bell's have been around a long time, and I know lots of other helmets are probably better than it, but I like staying with something thats proven!

Good luck, I don't think you can go wrong with a Bell.

It doesn't look like it's Snell or ECE rated, which is one thing I always look for in a helmet. The DOT rating doesn't mean a whole lot, unfortunately. I know that a lot of people love the Scorpion EXO line, and I just bought an EXO 500 that feels outstanding. A little pricier though, and no sexy graphics.

You may just found my next helmet! I work for the USN I was looking for the US Roundel to add to my helmet/jacket/bike but this one already has it and a pin up is a plus.

I love it. Some minor wind noise with all the vents open, though quieter than my other helmet. I got a small based on their sizing chart & it was pretty tight on the cheeks with stock pads; however, it has since loosened up and fits perfectly.

The strafer looks much cleaner and I just can't stop liking the pinup and roundel in the back

It's dedicated to the fighter group in WWII: "The Flying Tigers" who made the shark-mouth popular with it painted on their P40-E Warhawks.

I see they left out the best part...the pin-up.

Bell's designer must've been gay.

LOL, Gay or not, the same designer must have made the one with the pin-up too. I will soon find out, I ordered it today and I should get it in 3-4 days. $109.00 total and the shop was near by so making sure it fits correctly wont be a problem. Picked it up from CycleGear, and they have a website too.

I know it comes with the clear one, when I go to pick it up, I will try to get the tinted one for it.

Here is another one I'v been considering:



Some how it makes the Bell arrow look more bad ass, I think it has to do with them blending the top vent into the graphic

Exactly, except the roundel is not as pronounced on that one. I looked at that one too and decided to get the other. Besides, the pin-up looks like someone I know

I was looking at that one as well too, didn't like how it's shiny, whereas his and mine are matte.

If I can get a pinup sticker I like as much as the one on the Strafer, I'll get the AirRaid and slap it on. PERFECTION.

I like the matte finish, not that I get any glare from my own helmet, but I think it looks better that way. Originally i was looking for a matte olive drab helmet, but of the ones I seen, they were too busy with senseless graphics.
