Bell Pit Boss Flames 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
  • 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

Note: Flames are Orange.

Bell Pit Boss Flames Helmet 4.7 5 98 98
Excellent helmet in weight, comfort, fit and features (Bell Pit Boss) I researched different 1/2 helmets and the Bell Pit Boss stood out in its reviews on weight, comfort, fit and features. I measured exactly the width of my head and came down to ordering a large size and the fit is perfect and I can still adjust it with the speed dial system to have a tight/snug fit which completely prevents any buffeting at high speeds. I still wear sunglasses and haven't use the visor yet but I'm very satisfied so far with this helmet and it looks great too. April 14, 2014
Great helmet that has a really comfortable fit. Well I'd say the other reviewers have this part covered. A+ for fit, form, function and being extremely comfortable. March 31, 2014
Great Helmet Can't ask for much more in a helmet like this. The dial-a-fit system it uses is great! Also, I love the drop-shade to help with the sun and wind deflection. March 31, 2014
Great helmet with great features I'm a big guy, 6' - 300lbs., and I have a hard time finding helmets that fit the top of my head while also fitting my cheeks and face comfortably. I have a couple full face helmets that I can get by with when I need to in the winter months, but I love the feeling and comfort that I get from my Pit Boss helmet. The internal visor is a great feature that helped put this helmet at the top of my list, but the super easy adjusting wheel fit has made this a slam dunk and I am very happy with my purchase. Also, the removable cold weather liner really makes a big difference in cooler weather. I've used this helmet in February and March in sub 50 degree weather and it has kept me relatively warm for my 25 minute commute. I only have two small issues with the helmet. 1: there is no ventilation on the top so the top of my head can get a little hot, but it being half helmet there's plenty of open air ventilation for the rest of my head so not a big deal. 2: I tend to get a "seam ring" impression from wearing this helmet on my head from the liner if I've been wearing the helmet for a short while. Now, I'm bald too, so this is probably only a problem that you'd have to deal with if you didn't have any hair, but it sort of looks like I'm Frankenstein's monster after a ride. I just bought a Buff head covering so I'm thinking that should take care of my vanity "fake head scar" problem. All in all, a great helmet with great features at a great price. March 30, 2014
Best half helmet I've ever owned I usually wear my full face modular Nolan if riding highway speeds because most half helmets feel like they're flying off my head making my neck hurt. The Pit Boss doesn't do that. The hard hat type adjustment works extremely well and the ear flaps keeps the wind out of my ears. Still loud but the flaps help a ton. It doesn't give you the mushroom look, actually looks great I think. D rings and strap snap keep it snug under your neck. It's light and the matte black looks awesome. Great product from Bell.

Flip down visor I have the replacement flip down visor, but there are no directions on how to change it out without breaking the very delicate brackets that hold the visor March 21, 2014
Good helmet some questionable features This is a good helmet with features that, on the cover, look great but their function is questionable. First off, fit is excellent. The helmet stayed in place even at 80mph (wtih no wind screen) and did not try to lift off my head. The adjustable head control works great but when I first got the helmet the adjustment mechanism was loose and after further investigation I found that the inside tangs were not put into (or came out of) their holes in the Styrofoam inner shell. They snapped back into place but I question their longevity. The two piece into one design of the side straps causes excess wind buffering noise right by your ear. This does not exist when using the liner but for higher heat riding this would not be a cure. The flip down visor, does not! It is very temperamental and unless I stopped, it would not come down without detaching itself from one side causing me to have to pull over, remove the helmet, reattach the visor to its snap in pivot, and then put the helmet back on and proceed. Otherwise, this is a good helmet that, without having crash tested it (thank the motorcycle gods) seems like it would offer good protection but still remains lightweight and in place while riding. If the rear adjustment mechanism continues to function, I can live with the visor issue, and this will be a very good helmet. March 17, 2014
An excellent alternative to non-DOT helmets! I hate the "Great Gazoo" look that most half-helmets create so I was wearing a novelty helmet until I saw someone wearing one of these. I was surprised by the low profile so I decided to give it a try and couldn't be happier. The fit is comfortable. The adjustment dial on the back really "dials in" the fit and ensures the helmet doesn't ride up or shift position. It's DOT approved and actually manages to avoid turning me into a melon head. Win-win. March 10, 2014

carol r: The factory shield was to be smoke, but for some reason, they did not have approved smoke shields available at first production. The first models were sold with clear shields, and Bell shipped the smoke ones no chg when they became available. Call Revzilla to see whether they have any helmets with the clear shield left in stock. If not, they should be able to help you locate one. They ARE out there. Hope this helps. Oct 7, 2013
