Bell Pit Boss Checkers Twin Tone Helmet
This is a great helmet. The fit is just right. This is a half helmet so noise is what it is. The flip down visor is tinted. I swapped it out for a clear one. I ride with transitional goggles which usually fog up in the rain. The clear visor will allow me to remove the goggles and still be protected. I wasn't that thrilled with the speed dial adjustment, but was able to back it off enough that it wasn't a problem. I'm sure it makes it so the helmet fits more people but would prefer it if it wasn't even there.

Half Helmet Bliss
This is my first half helmet, but not my first helmet. It comes with a styrofoam protector for the speed dial adjuster on the back of the helmet. (mine was broken when I opened it and I thought the helmet had been damaged!) Of course after realizing this was just a piece of foam to protect I felt foolish... Tried the helmet on, fit was great. I bought this helmet because I wanted a helmet that I could put on and take off without having to remove my prescription glasses first. After adjusting the speed dial it felt like it was made for my head. It's a bit heavy but tolerable. I didn't ding it for protection because it's a half helmet, less protection is expected compared to a full face. The neck curtain is nice and warm and I love the fact it can be removed on the hottest days. And it comes with a light weight bag to keep the dust off it in winter months. If you're in the market for a half helmet, definitely give this one a second look.

Great quality, flip down tinted visor is a wonderful feature.
Fit and finish on this piece are better than the price would suggest. The flip down visor and the side cushions provide great wind protection. Watch the revzilla video and if you think it is for you you won't be disappointed.

Finally a half helmet that fits great and looks cool!!
Great half helmet with excellent features, namely the Bell adjustable headband..... just dial in your size and you really don't need to crank down the chin strap. Another cool feature is the built-in drop down visor, I just wish it was a little more optically refined, there is a little distortion but if you need it it's there for you. I would definitely recommend this well made helmet!!

Great fitting helmet.
Really enjoy this helmet. I really like the adjustable strap / band for the back of the head. The pull down visor is nice as well. I have a similar harley helmet and my son and I fight over this one.

You will value the quality and the features. For a DOT helmet it does not overwhelm your head.

Well made helmet... good for the purpose.
As a long time sport bike rider who inherited a Harley wanted a helmet that wasn't full faced but didn't make me look like Kazoo on the Flintstones. This is one of the nicer looking half helmets. Its fit to overall diameter is better than most. The adjustable fitment at the base of the skull rally holds the helmet well... but becomes a little constrictive is you lift your chin (as you would leaning forward on the bike). It is not a $600 helmet but it is better made than others in it's price range.

I really like this product except for a couple little things I don't think could be avoided with this style helmet. The biggest of which being the incorporated flip down sun glasses doo-loley. It functions great and I've yet to scratch it or anything but the air that gets around it when I ride dries my eyes out in about half an hour. Like I said though, I don't know how it would be possible to get around that. Unless they started custom making every visor for each individual's face, which wouldn't be feasible. Given the choice to do it over I'd buy it again. Thanks, Daniel
