My Helmet came in yesterday, I bought a Bell Apex Reactor in red. My first impressions:

Helmet is light, much lighter than the 7 year old Arai Quantum-f I'm replacing

The fit is PERFECT, snug, yet not binding, when buying, buy the next size up from what you measure, Bells run small

The vents are easily operated, and easy to find, compared to my older Arai

nice padding under the straps, feels comfy when cinched, also GOOD FIELD OF VIEW, when the helmet is on. Easy to remove/operate shield.

Nice graphics, Kevlar construction, EXCELLENT, FIT, FINISH, AND CONSTRUCTION, Snell 2005 and DOT rated, removable, washable, liner, this helmet is a STEAL for $199.!!!!!!!!

I used the helmet a few times with 85 degree temps, it was cool and comfortable with the vents open. On cool damp mornings I was amazed how the helmet would not fog up, the anti-fog coating on the shield works perfect.
My only nit about the helmet is I wish it had a pulldown "shade" in front of the chin like my old Arai, to block wind on chilly mornings, not a big deal, I usually use a neck "tube".
