Bell Qualifier DLX Blackout Helmet

The Qualifier DLX series uses a polycarbonate shell that comes in three shell sizes — XS/S, M/L and XL/2XL. A bit of a legacy design from Bell, it uses the old standard Click Release shield system, and comes with a door to integrate a Sena bluetooth unit.

This helmet is a great choice for a new rider, or anyone on a budget. It'll get you on the road with a dual safety ratings, and it'll teach you how much of a pain in the butt it is to change shields.

And once you put some miles in an entry-level helmet you'll develop a good frame of reference and appreciate a premium helmet that much more.

Spoiler alert: The bluetooth door doesn't work well and we don't recommend using it. First, you have to buy a $40 adapter kit to fit a Sena 10S unit, and then stop right there because we've found that they adaptors don't work well and we advise you use the clamp kit that comes with the Sena 10S kit and just to right over the top of the door.

For a bit more money you can upgrade to the Qualifier DLX MIPS, which comes with a Transitions (auto-tinting) shield and MIPS, which is a clever way to mitigate the rotational force of impacts.


If you’re looking for a SNELL rated helmet, check out the Bell Star MIPS, the Shoei RF 1200, or pretty much any Arai.

But all that said, for ~$160 it's pretty hard to beat this basic "Blackout" version of the Qualifier DLX. Use it to get started, keep it as a knock-around or a passenger helmet.
