Bell Helmets has introduced the Qualifier DLX in its growing line of street helmets. At $229.95, it represents an affordable option for street riders looking for a value-rich lid. Beyond the price, however, the Qualifier also offers some unique features for the price range.

Each Qualifier is constructed from a lightweight polycarbonate shell and is D.O.T. legal. Further, each Qualifier comes with the Transitions shield which automatically changes tint depending on ambient lighting conditions. It has high anti-fog properties and installs easily with no tools thanks to Bell’s ClickRelease shield change system. From there, adjustable cooling vents helps keep rider temps under control, the moisture-wicking and washable liner is comfortable to the touch, and the aerodynamic profile resists buffeting and lift.

Maybe best of all, the Qualifier accommodates the Bell Sena SMH10 and Cardo Scala Rider Q1/Q3 Bluetooth stereo headset and intercom, making it very simple to connect with your media devices or with other riders. The Qualifier comes with a five-year warranty, and will be available in a variety of sizes and colors.
