Bell Bullitt Helmet 4.2 5 45 45
This product is very stylish but not for the long ride Well i got this for my new bmw rninet. it looks retro, stylish and cool. but if you are like me, riding below 80 km\hr with visor up and sun glasses, this product is the thing to go for. once you get past 80km\hr, the trouble starts though. It catches the wind and leans heavy on your brow, makes it a bit bothersome. The whistling noise coming from the visor being up is very annoying. It is so annoying at times, you try to find a different position for your head to lower the voice. However with visor down it is ok and as loud as the wind you are catching... i can only compare it to my other helmet which is a shoei, and when compared for noise and comfort, shoei is a much better one. the insides look well enough, but give the impression of a simple helmet upon inspection. verdict: i use this in between real cafe travels, like going from a cafe to another restaurant to casual riding in city. but when things get serious i would rather have something with better airflow, better aerodynamics and less noise. ps: i don't use ear plugs. if you are into that, maybe you will never get bothered by the noise...

Nice design very comfortable Looks and feels great, The shell, visor attatchment and cushions are all superior in materials. Unfortunately when you take the cushions out to wash you will notice that they cheaped out on the snaps because they break!!, and the chin strap snap to keep the excess strap from flapping also ripped out after a month of daily use. Unacceptable in my book for a $400 helmet. Also a lot of wind and road noise when you are at 50+ mph. Other than that,, it's an awesome helmet. July 16, 2014
great helmet I really like this helmet. you can't beat this helmet for vintage looks and modern functionality. the gringo is a great helmet, but this one is less bulky, has vents, and more visibility. you're paying for what you get. everything functions great. when i first got the helmet it was really tight to get on, but in a week it was broken in nicely. judge the fit by how it fits once on your head, not how hard it is to pull on. (its a bit rough on the ears the first handful of times) July 7, 2014
Great helmet! Exactly what I want in terms of style. Venting could be a bit better but even in the hot south, it's comfortable. June 30, 2014
Bullitt Awesome looking helmet. Fit is nice and snug I'm a Lg. Worried about mushroom? Don't be. It is big, but, not too big. Throw a bubble shield on or goggles and your in. I would strongly recommend this helmet for someone going for that old Skool Retro look, but at the same time uncompromising on safety. June 26, 2014
A little pricey but there's nothing else like it I went through a lot of different emotions when I first got this helmet. Initially I thought it looked awesome, then when I put it on I thought it looked a bit silly, but I wore it indoors for a bit and said sure, it's different, so I got excited again and went out with it for a ride and hated it, then two days later loved it. And I'll explain why. I ride a Triumph T100 Bonneville and really wanted a full-face helmet but with a retro look. At first glance the Bullitt definitely fits the bill - it reminds me a lot of a James Hunt era Formula 1 helmet, think 1970's or thereabouts. So pretty cool. However because of it's shape, it's incredibly wide opening and it's very thin chin bar it does look at first a bit odd when it's actually on your head. Most full-face chin bars come up under your nose, this one sits right at your chin. It took me walking around my apartment in it to get used to the look. It did also fit a little tight, I'm usually a size Large in most helmets but went with a Medium because of the Bell/Revzilla sizing. After concluding I ultimately did like the look I decided to commit to it and went for a ride in it. Now I live in NYC and often ride under cruising speed, say 10-15mph in slow traffic, and with my old full-face would ride with the visor up. The Bullitt with the shield up whistles something awful, even at very low speed, very loud and I hated it immediately. I was worried I'd made a huge mistake. There's nothing you can do about it, and it's because the vents on the top you are not able to close as with most full-face helmets, which I did (and to a degree still do) consider a problem. With the shield down the whistling goes away but the incredible air flow you get does also create quite a bit of noise once you get up to highway speed. Me no like. I was also struggling with the slightly tight fit but felt as though a step up in size would be too much. So I thought 'oh no, what have I done?' $400 down the toilet. Not so. I had also ordered the silver iridium face shield which came while I was in my moment of crisis over the helmet itself and waited to put it on because I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I spoke with Revzilla and they offered to have a look at the helmet in case the whistling was a defect, but I did more research myself and came to the conclusion that the helmet just shouldn't be worn with the shield up. And to be honest, let's face it, why have a full-face helmet if you're going to ride with the shield up? I decided to stick it out, and I'm glad I did. The whistling when I do ride occasionally with the shield up is becoming more bearable as I get used to it. The fit is becoming more comfortable as I break the helmet in. The field of view you have is incredible. And the iridium face shield? Oh man!! Does it look awesome! So now I can confidently say these are my pros and cons: Pros - Very light for a full-face - Field of view, very wide particularly at the peripherals which is fantastic - With the iridium shield on you look badass and it cuts the summer sun very very well - Swapping face shields is quick and easy, all you need is a coin to unscrew it - Whether it's intentional or not, there is ample room for glasses/shades - The fit if you get it right and allow some break-in time is very snug and fairly comfortable - The materials used are of very high quality, particularly the inner linings which are wicking and removable - There is no other helmet out there like it Cons - Breaking it in does take some patience - The whistling is a problem if you ever want to ride with the shield up, and the vents can't be closed (actually the chin vent can but that isn't what causes whistling) - Even with the shield down it can get a bit loud - Considering the lack of features this helmet has it is very expensive So yes, there are things I like and maybe still do not like. It could be a better helmet for $400. I would have been a lot happier at a $300 price point. With that said, you perhaps are spending the extra $100 on the fact that there is no other helmet that looks like this, with a lift-up shield (I'm looking at you Gringo!), that is DOT rated, without ordering something from Europe or Japan that will cost you three times as much. If you are looking for the best retro full-face helmet that your American dollars can buy, as I was, I'm pretty confident in saying that this is it. June 20, 2014
Sweet lid Full disclosure, it's pull is the style, but I can't say enough about the comfort and feel, beyond expectations. Love it! June 16, 2014
Great style, little loud I've been wearing this daily for a couple of months and really love it for the most part. The bad. When new it's really tight. I actually damaged my ear the first day I had it getting it off and on. Swelled up like a cage fighter. It is also a little loud over all and with the shield 100% up has a really bad whistle at 50mph that begins to be unbearable. The good. After a couple of months it fits like a glove and had broken in really well. It has pretty decent air flow and the shield has a little leather and magnet latch that I fold up between the shield and the helmet to have it cracked at speed. The chin guard doesn't take much room so you have your entire field of vision. It's also nice that you can remove the shield and it still looks great so you basically have a 3/4 with chin brace. I love it. Other than the noise from the raised shield at highway speeds I have no complaints so a few months in. June 16, 2014

Ron S: I wanted an older helmet to go with my bike. Old brittle helmet? No. Gringo? No flip up shield option or chrome trim on the gloss black. Then I saw the Bullitt and immediately fell in love with this helmet, but the price held me back at first. Tried on a large at a local shop that should have fit me but it pinched my temples and no xl in stock. The field of vision is superb and the overall look is just right. Nice design, Mr Hodge! Really hoping that the xl fits right Jul 7, 2014

Devin K: This helmet has a very classic style, which I dig. I won't ride a 3/4 because of safety, but I don't want the super aggressive look of so many full face helmets. This is a great way to have the classic style with the protection of a full face helmet. May 11, 2014

Eric M: Bell helmets, in my humble opinion, have been made with excellent thought and design features. I have the Bell custom 500 and loved it. The Bullitt provides the same quality of product with the style and increased visibility that I have been looking for in a full faced helmet. Apr 12, 2014
Raine S: It is awesome looking! Apr 7, 2014
Daniel F: gift Mar 28, 2014
Gregory G: Clever design for those who wears full face helmet and knows how annoying is to look down at your bike speedo and rpm without bending your head ,with this helmet the thin jaw protection make it easy Mar 23, 2014
Tanju C: What I like about the helmet is that it combines the security of a full face helmet with a very low chinbar. It opens up the look. I also tried it on in my local store and the inner fabric is awesome. (They didn't have it there in this color, that's why I ordered it here). Mar 22, 2014
Chris W: I choose this helmet because I liked the vintage look but with all the modern safety features. Mar 22, 2014

M A: I ordered a medium-sized Bullitt first, and it looked great. However, it was definitely too big. Compared to my old Shoei, it felt a size larger than the listed 58cm size on the sizing chart. Hopefully this new, small-sized helmet will do the trick. Mar 12, 2014
M A: Style combined with safety features. Feb 15, 2014
Caleb C: because it is badass!! Jan 16, 2014
Hunter W: (1) because it looks awesome (2) because it (seems like) it will function well with the flip-up shield and (3) because you do a really good job* on the videos which serve as a differentiating factor between revzilla and the others (MCsuperstore, etc).

* my only complaint is that â?? in the welcome message "watch, decide, buy" â?? anthony sounds a bit schlockyâ?¦ turn it down a bit.

James P: Bad design there. I can't figure out why they let you close the bottom vents but not the top. I wouldn't be wearing it in the winter so kind of makes you want to skip it all together. Maybe since its retro you could use duct tape and it would add to the cool factor. lol Jan 20, 2014

John F: I installed the Sena SMH10 - and while its my first comm system, love it so far. I haven't used the intercomm function yet. But having music without ear buds and being able to make/receive phone calls is really great. To install, I had to use the "sticker" feature - in other words, I couldn't just clamp to the helmet, I had to use the included adhesive sticker put on side of helmet. Apr 17, 2014

Justin R: I wish there was a less obtrusive way to install something like this. Sticking that module on the side of such a cool looking helmet pretty much kills it for me. Apr 18, 2014

Kristen L: I'm actually about the same size (56 and some change but don't recall) and tried both the small and medium. The small was TIGHT, not even 10mins and my forehead was numb. If my head was a little more round than oval and a fraction smaller, it might have worked...maybe. I wound up keeping the medium. It fits great in the crown but is a bit loose in the cheeks. I asked around (including Revzilla's gear geeks, who are awesome) and finally decided to keep it and found it to move ever so slightly if I turn my head to look over my shoulder at 40+ mph.

Jeremy S: Shopper,
I wear a small or medium depending on the helmet maker and I can tell you the small fit me in the Bell Bullitt. However I did have to return the small due to a defect in the fit of the visor on the helmet causing it to rattle, customer service made it sound like a design flaw so ultimately I was refunded the money for this helmet.

John W: I'm on the boarder between a large and an x-large. I went with the large. At first, the helmet was very tight and the two metal studs that connect the liner to the helmet drilled my forehead. After several hours of wearing it, however, the helmet seems to have relaxed a bit and now fits great. Jun 17, 2014

I returned a xl for a xl land helmet is horrible for my head. Love the look, absolutely hate the feel when it's on.

Richard V: Though the label on my helmet only states that it is DOT certified, the Bell website states that the Bullitt is also ECE certified. Revzilla doesn't allow me to post the link to the Bell site, but you can find that with a quick google.

I love the Bullitt and I found the quality and design to be even better than it is revealed to be in photos. That being said, it's a fairly noisy helmet and while the inside is lined with good quality leather and suede, it is not as comfortably padded as my other helmets. I bought it strictly as a "fashion accessory" to complement my Ducati Paul Smart, which I only use for relatively short "Sunday rides" in the very best weather. I have absolutely no regrets about buying the Bullitt and it far exceeded my expectations, but it would not be my first choice as an everyday helmet.

Rene H: Hi, as we do sell quite some of those beautiful helmets in Switzerland, we checked on different sources. According to those, all the Bullitts have been tested not only DOT- but also ECE 22.05- Standards. Those helmets, ordered in and shipped out of USA do not have the ECE-approval stickers - But we have been assured that all the helmets meet the standards needed in EU.

Tanju C: Yes, it is! You can see for yourself on the official Bell page, it states there that it's AS, DOT, and ECE certified.

There's no ECE sticker on the helmet, though, at least if you order it from here. There's only the DOT sticker.

A S asked: Bullitt or Gringo? That is the question. Reading the reviews here, it almost seems like the features and refinements built into the Bullitt cause more issues than would be worth it. I happen to like the looks of the Bullitt a little better, but at a cost over twice as much, I certainly don't want to be buying more problems than I'd be getting with the cheaper one.

Also, I don't get why people seem to be calling out either helmet as fairly noisy. Seems like such a simple helmet should be about as quiet as possible.

John W: AS, I went with the Bullitt for a couple of reasons, and I'm glad I did. First, the design is awesome, as are the variety of face shields. Second, I like the large open face design. I haven't worn a helmet in 20 years of riding so I like the fact that the chin bar is pretty small.

I love my Bullitt--matte black. I ride with the face shield off most of the time because I like the wind in my face. I have ridden with the bubble shield. I did not find the helmet "loud" as others have said but remember, I'm coming from a position of NEVER having worn a helmet. Personally, I find the helmet very comfortable and the reduction in outside noise is substantial. I think if you compare the helmet to some of the helmets guys use on crotch rockets then you would hear a difference.

The field of vision is perfect. The helmet is comfortable and doesn't make me look like a Martian. My head is somewhat narrow, not oval. Others have noted that you have to be aware of how your ears enter the helmet.....this is my experience also. However, I simply slip the helmet on in a way that doesn't bend my ears......so problem eliminated.

Do I think the helmet was worth the $$$$? Absolutely. I wear it just about everywhere.

Jonathan H: Never researched the Gringo, but looking at it now, it appears as though the bullit is the higher grade helmet. Simple, yes, but refined. I do not find the helmet to be to loud. I did not want a full face helmet initially, but knew it was the smarter and safer choice. The bullit offers protection with the chin bar while still giving a huge field of vision as well as avoiding any claustrophobia or crowding issues. The opening seems much more narrow in the gringo, and I wonder if looking down to see your speedo will be an issue.

As far as price goes? I don't feel like the simplicity of the bullit creates a feeling of overpaying. Handling it and fit wise, you can tell it's a premium product. Can't speak for the Gringo, but my general experience is that you get what you pay for.

Andrew E: The Bullitt vs Gringo. Both are noisy, both don't breath very well and lets face it are fasion helmets. However, the Bullitt has a better non bubble face shield option and has a larger field of view.

So if your going to wear goggles and the visablity does not bother you... Gringo all the way. Other wise spend more money.

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.
