* Bell USA introduced the SRV friction-lock system as a rolling change in 2005-06 on the SA2005 Vortex and M3 helmets. Later SA05 versions of these models have the SRV system, but some of the early SA05 helmets have the original Bell Kam-Lok Shield detent system. The SRV shield has a smooth curved slot in front of the pivot. The Kam-Lok shield has a slot with three notches and takes a different shield.
Early SA2005 and older M3, M3 Xtra, Sport II, Sport III, Vortex, and XFM-1 helmets with the Kam-Lok detent can use this SRV shield with the addition of the Bell Kam-Lok to SRV Pivot Conversion Kit, Part No. 2239-010 (sold separately).
Customers outside the Americas please note: This shield only fits Bell USA helmets. It does not fit any European-market helmets.
