Bell Bullitt Helmet

In the late 1960s Bell released the Star, the first full-face helmet, revolutionizing the helmet and motorsport industries and setting a new standard for safety. Since then Motorcycle helmets have taken all sorts of shapes and forms, but at its essence has always been the simple and classic Star. The inherent beauty in the Star’s simplicity has made it an effective and aesthetically appealing piece of motorcycle gear that has survived the test of time.

To pay homage to the glory days of motorsport, the Bell Bullitt has inherited the classic styling of the Star, but has been infused with contemporary comforts and  crash protection. Constructed with a low-profile fiber composite shell and multi-density EPS liner, the Bullitt meets modern DOT regulations yet comes as close as possible to the look and feel of the original Star. Luxurious appointments like a micro-suede lining with leather trim, metal mesh circular intake vents, rear exhaust vent and 3D cut cheek pads with speaker pockets, compliment the vintage styling and shoot the Bullitt into the 21st century.

Named after the brash detective, played by iconic actor and motorsport enthusiast Steve McQueen in the cult classic Bullitt, the Bell Bullitt is as much an exercise in design as it is in rider safety, breaking the mold and providing a premium retro option to the market. Put that vintage helmet back on the shelf where it belongs and pick up a Bullitt to fulfill all your retro riding dreams.

Note: The Bullitt has a very round internal shape. It is ideal for people who need more ear and temple room but conversely it is less suitable for people who need more room in the forehead area.

Bell Bullitt Helmet 4.3 5 247 247
Great looking helmet I bought this beauty to replace my scorpion helmet. I went to a classic look and a bit more airflow. The Bell helmet has kept me fresh with a good airflow. I also like the style of the face shield which provides me with peripheral vision that most other helmets just don't have. Highly recommended if you are looking for a summer, stylish low key helmet. I broke Anthony's "rule" and I attached a Sena 10R. Easy set up and installation. Although sometimes i have to fix my ear because the speakers. June 28, 2016
Looks good, excellent vision, value for money? When I bought a cruiser bike, I had to get a helmet I could see the speedo without moving my whole head but I still wanted a full face helmet. I am a size M or L for most helmets but after getting an L for the Bullitt, I had to send it back and get an XL. It does not feel as substantial as its price would dictate. The wind noise is high and you cannot close the vents above the visor. However, the field of vision is excellent and it looks fantastic. Maybe not a great choice for super sports bike but adequate for cruising or relaxed rides. June 14, 2016
Love this helmet This is my first helmet so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I love it. It looks amazing, is super comfortable, and provides great vision. The only downside is the price, but to me it's worth it. June 14, 2016
Great style and quality. The style and quality are excellent. No question. I have only two complaints, neither of which are serious enough to make me dislike the helmet, but perhaps helpful for those looking to buy: 1. There is a bit of wind noise. On a cheap helmet, I would expect it. On a $400 helmet, you'd think a legacy manufacturer such as Bell would have put a bit more research and development into resolving the wind noise better. That said, it's not a deal killer and I'm still a happy camper when riding. 2. The helmet seems to be made for very round heads, rather than the more common slightly oval head (I have a slightly oval head). The Large fit my face best, but it quickly gave me a headache due to pressure on the forehead, so I changed to an extra large and that's what I use. For me, the XL can be slightly wobbly in the face when at speed, but I have no headaches, so I settled for it. Another thought is, if the large had fit, perhaps it may have the effect of reduced wind noise(?). So, despite those two complaints, I still love the helmet and would buy it again. It's comfortable and stylin'. June 12, 2016
Beautiful Helmet These helmets are pure quality.... and that is what you are paying for. Great old school look, great fitment, and great overall quality July 19, 2016
O, the compromises of high fashion! Style: Bought this helmet to pose while riding my '83 BMW airhead and it certainly looks the part! The white paint has a slight metallic sparkle in it, while all the stripes are decals. The stripe decals appear to be laid in 3 sections, with 2 areas of overlap to make the appearance of a solid line. On the thin, black pinstripe, both overlapping points don't line up exactly and TBH looks a bit cheesy when you see it from 2 feet away, standing still. Will anybody notice while you ride or standing further than a few ft from you? no.... Comfort: Liner is comfy, not spectacular, but should be good for a few hours. I'll find out this wknd! Feels lighter than the actual weight suggests, guess the weight well-balanced in that regard. Noise: it's quite noisy and so far I've only ridden in city limits. At just 25mph, there is quite a roar behind a faired bike (TBD on naked bike). When I tilt my head anywhere near the 3/4 tuck/race position the rear spoiler/venturi howls LOUDLY, confirmed by covering it with my hand. If I glance down at my speedo it does a bit of the same, reduced actually if I wear the helmet rotated a tad up vs having the top of the view port touching the top of my eyebrows. Features: The magnetic visor tab is pretty trick and works well. I wish the lined portion of the chin strap was longer to cover more of the nylon. Neither the bubble visor or flat shield really touch the visor gasket, so I anticipate this to be a dry weather lid (always open vents are another reason obviously). Visors are thick and I don't see any distortion with either bubble or flat. The field of vision is HUGE and a very pleasant experience. I only see the chin bar a little but no other part of the helmet when wearing it. Kinda cool there are pockets sown into the ear area to accept intercom speakers (I assume), BUT my Sena SMH10 cannot be used because there's no gap between the shell and helmet EPS to slip the mount into and secure it to the helmet... Bottom line: IMO it's got style that really stands out nicely. I think the price is worth it for style, but you ARE losing a lot of features and performance that modern styled helmets have evolved to do oh-so-well July 1, 2016
Great materials and style, but style over function is not a good choice at this price. I bought a retro bike and liked the idea of a retro styled helmet with modern upgrades. So, the dealer had the Bullit for just over $300. The helmet style, build quality and materials are great. I was between a XL and L, but the L had painful pressure on my skull. Bottom line it's round shape doesn't fit my intermediate oval head. The XL felt good so I bought it. The fit is okay. That said, the bottom line is the helmet's price is in the Shoei and discounted Arai range. Having recently bought an Arai for just a little more than this Bell. it's no contest. True modern style helmets aren't as cool, but even with ear plugs, the Bell helmet is loud. My advice-Unless you just have money to burn on style points, I'd invest in a high function quiet alternative for the open road and buy a Biltwell Gringo or Bell 500 for in town style appearances. I'll keep my Bullit, but it'll be for around town hops. April 24, 2016
Classic look painful fit. When I first saw this helmet I knew I had to have it. The style was fantastic and had everything I was looking for. As far as exterior looks are concerned it is a smaller helmet that doesn't make you have that bobble head look. It's slightly plyable when putting on the helmet or else it can be a bit tight. I went with a Large, I could of had an XL and had some bigger cheek pads but it just didn't seem fully snug. Unfortunately on long rides this thing will hug my temples to the point of a headache as the padding surrounding the forehead is very hard plastic with a thin smear of leather wrapped over it. This is a great Helmet for city riding around town and having looking like a solid cafe racer. Extended rights I'd look into something much more comfortable. Aside from that, the exterior quality and bits is very nice. It seems like a very high quality helmet, and people who don't ride at the office often comment that it looks like a very expensive helmet. Cliffnotes version : Tight fit, maybe painful for long rides depending on your head shape. Great look, SUPERIOR build quality and style. April 20, 2016

If we take a peek at the Bell Bullitt Helmet, you're going to know this style. This style is a direct throwback of the original Bell Star 120, but the beauty of it that classic retro style that really resonates with really a certain defined and certain sect of motorcyclists, modern day motorcyclists. But you're not trading off protection, and you're not trading off comfort.

The first time we saw this helmet was in 2012 on the inner webs as a prototype by a senior design student in college. Bell latched on. They said, "That's the right direction. Let's help bring this to market. Now we're finally seeing it hit." As I rotate it around, you're going to see this is our black version with our flat shield. There are bubble shields available. There are also some graphics that are going to be available, but here's the big thing that stands out to me before I dive into some of the nuances.

It's the fit. You look at a motorcycle helmet like this, and back in the day when these things first came out, it was a trade-off in protection, in style, in fitment. Really they were clunky. These days now, you taking that same fit that we saw developed with the Star, with the RS-1, with all the new school style, intermediate oval head shape, fitment patterns from Bell. And you're getting it in the Bullitt helmet as well. So again, guys, it's going to be slighter longer front to back, really be consistent with what we see within the Bell line.

It's a premium helmet through and through, around that $400 mark, and again they've gone full Fiberglas. It's going to be lightweight. It's going to fit extremely well, but again you're not trading anything off by way of sacrificing any of the style components that are going to match up with your style of ride.

Also keep in mind that you're going to ship for free, and I'd love to hear your gut reaction to the full face Bell Bullitt. Click here. Leave us your comments, your questions, your feedback on RevZilla TV. I'd love to answer them right there in the comments. Stay up-to-date with the latest gear reviews. They're constantly rolling out.

Now we looked at the outside. Let's work our way in. Like I said, Fiberglas shell, super lightweight. That's premium. Many times we've seen the Bell Custom 500. We've seen the Biltwell Gringo. Again, they're using polycarb. This is lightweight and premium and strong. This is going to be your Fiberglas shell. Again, with a lot of attention to detail put into the outer shell here.

Now if you look at it as it comes together, one of the things you're going to notice for a retro style helmet is the vent scheme is great. You have a chin vent that's operable. From behind the chin bar you can open and close. You see four vents along the brow that directly vent to the EPS liner. Again, three shell shapes, three EPS liner sizes on this bad boy, but these are wire mesh. And the finish on these, the trim is actually going to change with different styles and different graphics that come out with the Bell Bullitt.

You're also going to notice up here on the forehead. This is one of my favorite things. I know we're talking about venting, but this logo is completely removable. So if you want to strip it down and you want go on full-on murdered out, you absolutely can on any of these models.

And then moving to the back, you actually see a little ridge as they've integrated a Venturi vent to give you that great air flow and keep you cool in summertime riding. Remember there's a lot of guys out there that aren't built like storm troopers. They're not Harley-Davidson guys. They're guys that are going to ride a chopped up or cafed out bike. They're going to ride it through the summer. It's their daily commuter, but they don't want to sacrifice the style that they're going for. But they should get the functional aspect from the Bell Bullitt. From a ventilative and a fit standpoint, you're going to have the ability to get that.

When I move into the guts, you're going to see how premium everything is on the inside of this helmet. Now when it comes to the face shield, I already mentioned that it's going to ship with a flat, clear shield. There's also a bubble shield. There's also different style of retro colors that are available as well, but I will tell you this that you'd use a coin to remove the side pods here. And the shield comes completely off.

There are plenty of folks out there, myself included, that would rock this with a pair of dirt goggles and really complete that look. There are a lot of folks going that direction, and it's very cool that Bell has put this together knowing that that is a style that most people or a good sector of folks that are going to purchase the Bell Bullitt are going towards.

Notice down here on our face shield lock here, it's actually magnefusion from Bell. They developed it with their chin straps. They're now integrating a diode magnet in the shell itself, and you have this leather coated magnet that's going to come down and pull everything together. If I open it up, you're going to see the trim. On this helmet it's a blacked-out trim with a piece of suede at the top.

We've seen chrome trims. We've seen gold trims. We've seen some of the different color ways that they've started to show us here on the Bell Bullitt. And again, they're going full-on style and premium. There's even some chrome, as I mentioned, that's going to be worked in to kind of complete everything.

Now if I pick it up and I pull it on its side here, I'll show you the guts. The nice part about this is that a lot of times you see helmets that either have a retro inspired theme or a little bit less expensive. They going to really be around that $100 mark, and when you come around the four bones mark on a helmet like this, you're making an investment. You're making a protected investment. But you're also making an investment in something that you'll need to be able to maintain over time.

So what you're going to find here is that the leather, and it's a full grain leather, neck roll is non-removable, but as I move towards m cheek pads and my comfort liner, you can pull everything out. So as I start to pull everything apart here, notice the chromed out double D ring. You see the Bullitt logo here on my straps. I'm going to pull my cheek pads out. Notice they're perforated. They have a suede element. They're going to wick like any other helmet, but they're very, very soft.

Now one of the things that Bell did tell us was that - and we saw it when we got our hands on one for the first time - is that there are cutouts that you could put speakers for a communication system into the Bullitt. But honestly I'm going right out and say it, "I think you're completely nuts if you buy this beautiful helmet and you strap on a commute to it. Or stick something to the outside that's going to take that beautiful retro style, that most people won't realize that it's this new helmet using up-to-date technology. And now you're going to stick this clunky tech piece out on the outside of this bad boy."

So if you look at it here again my other cheek pad's out, now let's remove my comfort liner. Four snaps along the brow or two snaps along the brow, and it's going to rotate back to two snaps that would be below the occipital ridge. It's the back part of your head. And as it comes out, again, you could see it's very premium. It's going to be 3D cut. It's going to have foam in the areas where you need a little bit of additional padding, and notice the mesh that's going to promote that great air flow, even leather in the top of the head here.

Again, they really went after the details on this helmet. You can see here the way the padding is laid out. You can see it is two snaps that are along the brow line up on the helmet, or up on the forehead, but there's no other way that they could have done it with this helmet. If you look at the interior guts, you're going to see those big channels that flow back, nice, long, Venturi vent out the back side of it. And you get to see where my interior intakes come in from the front. And it's nice to see that they did these four big vent on the front that are going to promote air flow through the helmet.

So keep it in mind when you sum it up, there's nothing like this on the market, especially here in North America. You've seen premium Fiberglas, new school protection and comfort features, but again you're looking at a helm that has a very classic throwback, retro style. It's not for everybody, but our guess and early feedback we've gotten is that the folks who have seen it are absolutely falling in love with it. And we'll see once they got them out on the road and really start to beat on them, how they hold up over time, but Bell has a great track record of making products that stand up.

The other nice part about these guys is the myriad of colors they come in as well as the different styles of face shields from both flat to bubble and different colors, really allow it to customize the helmet to your look. So it really becomes an extension of you because we know - I'll admit this as well - motorcycle helmets are the most emotional piece of the purchase process after you buy the bike yourself.
