Got my Bell Revolver today. First off, I ordered it from Motorcycle Superstore, as always their service was impeccable. I ordered it Wednesday, received it today (Friday). The price was $99.95 (free shipping) which is 1/2 off regular price. The Revolver seems to fit true to size, maybe a tad tight on the sides but Im sure it will loosen with use. Ive got a roundish head, I usually wear HJC helmets because they fit my head well. If HJCs fit you well, the Revolver should also fit you.
The initial quality of the Revolver seems to be much better than my HJC CL-Max and nearly as good as my Scorpion EXO-900. The overall quality seems good. The shield is high quality and easy to operate. Its also very, VERY easy to remove and install (one of the main reasons I chose this helmet) The internal sunshield seems thin and flimsy but it operates well and has good coverage when its down. The weight is a little more than my CL-Max and less than my EXO-900. I havent rode with it yet so I cant comment on things like venting and noise.
In spite of the apparent high quality of the helmet, this particular one does have a piece of trim along the bottom edge that is loose, Im not going to return it for this, A smearing of superglue should fix it nicely. This is how the rest of the trim on the bottom edge is held in place, it looks like this section of trim just didnt get much glue during manufacturing.
I'll get back with more once I've riden with it enough to develop an opinion on how it works.
I tried gluing the trim piece back into place and I couldnt get it to hold so I sent it back to MSS. My new one is on its way here.
