Clear and well rounded face shield Snaps firmly into place. it is clear and the curvature is aesthetically pleasing as well as great for shedding airflow. July 20, 2015
Not too wild about it. I bought this helmet to provide something quick, easy, and cool for zipping around town. It sat too low and interfered with my glasses, so first thing I added was a cloth under the liner to lift it. It still somehow manages to interfere a little and isnt really comfortable. I am hopeful it will loosen a bit with more use. I have mixed feelings. It looks ok, serves the purpose, but the fit just isn't good. If there were other options without shipping my now used Bell back to Revzilla I would sure consider it. My other two helmets are Shoei, and if they had a quickie open helmet I would have bought that instead. Perhaps I expected too much or maybe I just got too little. August 24, 2015
Good quality construction I can't complain about this helmet much. I wanted a 3/4 helmet that wasn't too big. This fit the 3/4 style I wanted, but I don't agree with them saying that it has a low profile. The helmet does reduce wind noise which was a goal with my helmet selection. I don't think it would be a great summer time helmet, but it's a great choice for cooler weather temps like we have here in Washington August 24, 2015
Great face shield. Fits my 3/4 helmet perfectly. They fit even when I am wearing my glasses. Easy snap-on and off. I use it whenever I travel on the freeway especially at higher speeds. Makes the ride more comfortable. June 30, 2015
Classic Bell Good Helmet, great construction and Materials, Nice paint. August 12, 2015
Really cool retro, and some honest criticism This is a great retro paint job. The paint itself is top notch and beautiful. Obviously a open face helmet, which lends to being noisy, weight is okay, and vision is great, nothing there to block your vision. Bell helmets run small, I've worn almost exclusively Aria helmets, and all have been extra large. I ordered a extra large in this helmet, but returned it for the 2XL. My hat size is approximately 7 1/2. Overall though, it is a really cool helmet and have had several comments on it already. It's definitely not a helmet I would take a trip in, full face for that, but cruising around town or a short trip to the store I usually reach for the Bell. One last thing, I got the bubble shield for it and when it's installed glasses are a bit of a hassle to get on. Looking to get some retro prescription googles in the future. August 10, 2015
Comfortable. Excellent product for the price. Fits great. Does not move around on your head in the wind. Definitely recommended. August 10, 2015
Helmet Overall a great helmet for the value, fit is tight on me but comfortable to wear. Had to change shades for comfort. August 3, 2015

Pat D asked: Hi Zilla nation, I'm using the clear retro 3 snap shield but was thinking about getting the smoked one as well since riding with the sun in my eyes is getting annoying and as you know it is pretty annoying to get sun glasses in and out with this retro shield on.

My question, is the amber gradient shield made to keep the sun out of your eyes during the day and also be clear enough at night? I have a gloss black bell custom 500 but I would still get the amber shield if it can save me from bringing around two shields every day.

Also is the smoked shield light enough so that you can use it at night as well?

Thanks a lot everyone who takes the time to answer.

A shopper asked: Will this fit the Biltwell Bonanza 3/4? Mar 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
michael p: I have the Gringo, and I'm pretty sure the buttons are the same as the Bonanza. I ordered this shield before I read the Q&A, but when I got the shield, much to my surprise, it fit! I had to move the snaps all the way out, and it just fit. It's tight, but all three buttons snapped on. I took the bike out for a ride, and had no problems.

On a side note, for those Gringo owners, the middle snap is adjustable vertically, which means you can move the shield up just enough to help with fogging issues.

A shopper asked: Can you (RevZilla) confirm the color of the 3 snaps on the Amber Gradient version? I have seen images where they are chrome and others where they are black. Thanks! Jul 14, 2014

MARK B: Their black on the amber gradient after checking mine. I've had two of these after loosing one on the freeway at high speed when high cross winds ripped it off! The shield offers some titling away from your chin when fitted which allows easier breathing which can then be pulled down closer to the face when underway.
Make sure the press studs are tight and I'd recommend adjusting their internal wire clamps in the female housing or thickening up the helmet stud say with PTF tape as an idea. Good luck.
