Not for a big head
Nice looking helmet, but if you wear glasses the shield will not come down, but with the shield down, it is to far away from my face it lets wind and depree hit the eyes. I bought xlt, 2xlt and the chin strap is short and hard to buckle. I have always liked Bell, but I'm not impressed with this one other than the looks.

Fits to size, very comfortable
Great half helmet. Both my wife and I bought one. We usually wear a full face helmet but this comes in handy for really hot weather. Adjustment wheel in back of helmet works really well for perfect fit. Drop down eye shield a plus in bright sun. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a helmet that did not look like a big bowl on my head. This is the only helmet that I liked. Great helmet. Would definitely recommend this helmet. It has an adjustment in the back like a bike helmet which makes it very comfortable. The tint on the sun shield is great in the sun.

I'm very pleased with this helmet. fit is great and the ability to adjust at the back of the neck is great. lightweight, comfy and love the visor that flips up and stores in the helmet. wish the visor was polarized to cut the glare a little better but still happy.

Best half helmet I've had.
I like that it sits low on my head. I don't feel like Kazzoo from the Bugs Bunny show. No movement at all. Feels solid and secure.

Good and bad
This helmet does what they say it will do; stay on your head. Other skid lids I've worn tend to hover above my head only held on by the chin strap.
My head is at the upper end of the size envelope, so it seemed a little small. I have to open the back strap all the way to get it on. It was still tight on the forehead, so I smashed down the foam on the front to make it comfortable. I wish the back strap had a height adjustment as it rides down on the neck. Once all the adjustments were done it fits nicely with no lift off at speed.
The sun visor is a nice feature and works well, however there are a couple problems. There is a hook built into the visor to pull it down with. The hook is too small, With insulated gloves on it's almost impossible to get a finger in the hook. With no gloves or thin gloves it's OK. If your wearing glasses the shield will try to knock them off as it comes down. After wearing it awhile and getting use to it, I can recommend it.

An excellent helmet, probably the best half helmet I've ever purchased. Fits well, comfortable and has good features. However, the helmets chin strap and buckle system is made from very thin materials which is disappointing for a BELL helmet. The button snap clips that hold the ear covers in place and the excess chin strap could have also been better quality as they do not securely lock together.
