Bell Pit Boss Checkers Twin Tone Helmet

From the first time you put the Pit Boss helmet on, you can feel the difference. The ultra-light TriMatrix construction keeps weight to a minimum while still passing tough DOT standards. The Pit Boss also features Bell’s innovative Speed Dial adjustable fit system which provides unmatched levels of comfort while drastically reducing the tendency for open face helmets to lift off of the head. And with additional features like a removable neck curtain and drop down sunshield, the Pit Boss truly reigns supreme on the wide open road.

  • Lightweight, TriMatrix composite shell—Kevlar/Carbon/Fiberglass blend
  • 2 shell sizes
    • MD: SM and MD helmets
    • LG: LG and XL/2XL helmets
  • Innovative Speed Dial adjustable fit system
  • Internal Sun Shade offers “on the fly” protection from the sun
  • Removable neck curtain for cold weather riding
  • Convenient speaker pockets make it easy to set up the Pit Boss with communication devices
  • Shield offers 100% UVA and UVB protection
  • Approximate weight: 900g
  • Five-year warranty

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. -MSS September 2, 2014
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. August 25, 2014
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. July 28, 2014
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. May 12, 2014
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. May 5, 2014
Great 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. February 25, 2014
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. February 24, 2014
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. January 17, 2014

Matt O: Wanted a half helmet with pull down sun shield. Nov 26, 2014
Robert P: The videos you guys put out really helps with the decision, thx Nov 8, 2014
Matt S: The styling and retractable sun visor are the main reasons I chose this helmet. I wanted a half shell that would look good with my 1978 BMW R100S and this was perfect. The fit is good, and the adjustable strap at the back of the helmet help keep the helmet level on your head at high speeds. Jul 24, 2014
Phillip D: I like the Pit Boss because it fits the contours of my head and maintains a low profile, unlike other half helmets I tried at my local bike store that stuck up too high on my head. I like matte black and picked the Checkers model because it enhances the look of the helmet without using the typical fire bolts and skeletons. Jul 21, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm VERY interested in the Bell Pit Boss helmet. Does the helmet only come with the tinted flip down eye shield, or is getting the clear one instead an option (other than purchasing it separately)?

Thank you - riding season is here (finally)!!!

Hank O: The helmet only comes with the tinted shield. I also didn't know this when I bought it and the clear shields were on back order. It wouldn't prevent me from buying the helmet though. The clear shields were about $7.00. If you buy the helmet, immediately purchase two clears and an extra tinted shield.. just my opinion.. they are easy enough to swap out which I do, because I wear standard eye glasses and need a clear shield for night riding...and yes, you can wear glasses or sunglasses with the shield down, but I guess that really depends on the size of your glasses or forehead. This helmet fits me perfect, I have more of an oval head. Also, and very important, the shield does not protect your eyes from wind!!!!! You should wear sunglasses or glasses that are made for riding (that touch the area around your eye with foam). Overall the helmet is comfortable and well made....any other questions, feel free to ask... Apr 7, 2014

Christopher P: The helmet only comes with a dark tinted flip down (very useful). Very comfortable- use it year-round, including the winter (Pennsylvania winters: 35-45 degrees) with the zip on ear covers (and electric gloves). Apr 5, 2014

Kathryn H: When I purchased the helmet, it came with the tinted shield. I also purchased the clear shield. They are super easy to change out, and you'll want to have both anyway… I LOVE this helmet! Apr 5, 2014

Douglas F: You have to purchase the clear eye shield separate easy to replace. Though
Clear seem to be a little distorted to me and I didn't see and option to buy clear lens on helmet.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard S: No, it is not leather. It is a man made simulated leather and is lined by a soft and absorbent felt like material. It works well in cooler weather. I hope this helps. It is a great helmet and very comfortable. You will like the size adjustment dial on the back. Jun 17, 2014

Parker F asked: Does anyone know how many shell sizes there are for this Bell Pit Boss Checkers helmet? Sometimes helmets that are large have the exact same shell dimensions as the size small, and then they just stuff extra padding inside. Apr 12, 2014

james b: I can't answer that question, you would probably need to ask that directly to the manufacturer. What I can say, though, is this is by far the best helmet I have ever owned...and I have owned lots of them. The stabilization system is awesome...helmet stays in place .. no riding back regardless of wind. I love this helmet. Looks great... fits true to size... many of my friends have gotten one after checking mine out. Apr 15, 2014
