Bell Pit Boss Checkers Twin Tone Helmet
Very simple and nicely detailed, the carbon fiber is beautiful, and the adjustment band makes for a perfect fit.

Great for a half helmet
Good fit, small for a DOT approved helmet and looks good! It is comfortable and that adjustment wheel actually works pretty well. Don't expect a novelty helmet sized brain bucket here... DO expect a well made half helmet that does the job and has some pretty cool features. Good job, Bell! Thanks Revzilla!

I use to no helmet and full faces helmet. I thought this helmet would look dopey, but it looks really bad "A" along with your my favorite shades.

Light, Great adjustments for custom fit!
Having ridden motorcycles for 35 years, this is the best open face helmet I have owned. My experience includes multiple Road-racing championships on Sportbike's and Supermoto bikes as well as 20 years of road riding on Harley's. Having personally felt the damage a crash can do, even at low speed, safety and comfort on a open face cruiser helmet has in my opinion been a trade off. This helmet, for the market, is a game changer with the large bulbous heavy look and feel no longer an issue. The rear adjuster is a great feature that sets the helmet apart giving proper fit at speed that can be easily adjusted as you go. Always wearing a full face small during my racing years, I again fit a small in this helmet. My Fiancée wears this helmet in a medium and I plan on using her's on a colder day when riding solo and an extra layer is needed and the self adjuster in the rear will give a custom fit. The drop down visor is also a great addition to taking the wind away from more of the face than glasses cover for those like myself who do not use a windshield. When visiting the showroom I personally recommend one of the best in the biz for helmet fitting and knowledge, Bobby or when purchasing online, Eric is my go to guy. Best customer service in the industry.

Can't beat Bell's quality but...
I own more than one Bell because their quality is exceptional. Fitment however is a challenge for the Pitboss as I am a guy with a round head so it sits a little high. Bell is definitely intermediate oval. For those with intermediate oval head shapes this helmet should sit pretty low for a DOT. If you have any doubts about fitment listen to Anthony ' s review.

Fantastic for the Money
Bought this to replace full face helmets I have and couldn't be happier. Internal flip down visor is a great feature.

This helmet is not a 2XL painfully too small without mod.
good quality helmet, great features, looks great, fit is horable. Who sells a helemt size XL/2XL? Whitch is it? when you try to screw it on you know, it is so tight it screws up your sight. Like the features, so made mod to size so it fits and now is comfortable. Comfort is of more value than features.

Better than I thought it would be.
My first non-closed face helmet. Bell is a good company and I had used their bike helmets before, so I was familiar with the retention system.
The only reservation I had was in regards to the sun shield. I was pleasantly surprised how well it works.
Helmet fit is superb, no more sore head above the forehead. No lifting at speed, but I do have a windshield. I really like the retention system and the zip in lining does a good job with noise and provides warmth.
The sun shield is legit. Easy to operate, it fits with minimal space around my face. Added bonus that I didn't expect. Being able to wear my eye glasses under the shield.
If you're looking for a quality half-helmet I'd strongly suggest checking out this one. I'm glad I did. And of course Revzilla shipped fast as always.
