RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Girard B: It has that classic look with modern protection. Apr 12, 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
Michael P: Nice helmet.... saw it at 2014 Daytona bike week ....had to have one Mar 17, 2014
Stephen W: It should make me 50% more handsome for the ladies. I guess any full face helmet would do this. Mar 13, 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.
Jan 10, 2014
J U: cause it's cool. and safe Oct 23, 2013

A S: **official word from Bell** for what it's worth... "We would not recommend wearing the Bullitt in the rain if getting moisture in the forehead vents is a concern. The helmet was tested in a variety of conditions." Mar 3, 2014
Reply to A Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
A S: I've never worn a helmet with open vents like this. Is it really an issue in the rain? I live in a place where it rains almost every day for 6 months of the year. I would love this helmet but that would be an unfortunate deal breaker if my head got soaked every time I wore it in the rain. Feb 12, 2014
Reply to A Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to James Good answer? Yes (1) No (1)
A S: I've shot an email over to Bell about it, if they don't reply I'll try giving them a call, we'll see if they've addressed it and/or extensively rain tested the helmet in any way. Feb 21, 2014

Justin R asked: What speaker system would you suggest for using in this helmet? Apr 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Angela D: Im using jaybird bluetooth headphones. A little spendy, but work well. Kind of a learning curve to get helmet on with buds in, but patience and practice gets it. I didnt want a big comm device or controle module. Anyways, enjoy. Please let me know if you find a better solution. Apr 11, 2014
Reply to Angela Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Justin R: Yeah I was doing earbuds but they have been impossible to stay in when putting on and taking off the helmet. Ideally I would just like some speaker pads (to go into the speaker pockets) that have a wire with a mic and controls on them Apr 18, 2014

A shopper asked: The flat black- is it the flat as in the profile product pic or is it the same flat as in the helmet in the video? The helmet in the video appears less flat and is what I am interested in purchasing. Apr 2, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Randolph R: The flat black in the pic is the same as in the video. You can tell coz the vent holes on the black are silver while on the flat black helmet, the vent holes are black. Apr 2, 2014

Edward W asked: Is this Bell Bullitt also the same head shape is the Bell Custom 500? In the video of the Bullitt it says intermediate oval, but I want to double check with anyone that has purchased this. Thanks.

I think my head is on the round side.

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 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.
