Bell Pit Boss Flames Helmet
Most comfortable helmet I've owned
While this is only my second half helmet that I have owned/worn, it is by far the most comfortable of any helmet I have owned/worn. The drop down visor was the selling point to me - being in the Northwest on the fly clears for the weather is a must. Always got tired of pulling over to switch glasses, but not any more! The neck curtain has a nice feel to it and keeps the ears toasty for chilly rides. The quick adjuster in the back is incredible as well - I love the snug feeling where the helmet is hugging your head. Not too tight, but enough to be comfortable and safe.

My preferred open face helmet
Since Bell came back to make motorcycle helmets they have constantly improved. The shape and design of this helmet is as good as it gets. Small form factor unlike mushroom style helmets and excellent safety features from the strap to the padding.

Love the fit, function & STYLE
This helmet has it all! Love the features including the eye shield. Good looking helmet. In fact, we purchased TWO!

Rode from from Philly to NYC on a 50 degree day,helmet was comfortable the whole time. Ear flaps worked great and was able to drop and retract sunsheild as it was needed.

This is one great helmet. Comfort, style and versatility. The flip down screen is a bonus, and the zip off neck curtain holds Bluetooth speakers and messy cables.
This is my first shorty helmet and it has really surprised me. My first ride with the Pit Boss was over 1000 kilometers in temperatures ranging from 15C to 40C and apart from some sweating in the extreme heat, the helmet performed with flying colors.
Not only do I recommend the Bell Pit Boss, but the service I received from Revzilla was outstanding considering I am 16000 kilometers away in Australia. Brendon was very helpful.

Just what I needed!!
I wear hearing aids and have always worn full face helmets, so this one is a big change for me. I needed something that wouldn't put so much pressure on my ears making them sore over long rides. This helmet is soooo comfortable in comparison Yeah, I'm giving up some protection, but this helmet is very well made and adjustable for fit so it doesn't move around at all. I love the integral face shield. I ordered a clear to replace the factory tinted one, as I wear sunglasses during the day so this works out better for me.

Great Half Helmet
I've worn all kinds of helmets over the years... Half, 3/4, full. And I have come back to a half helmet as my favorite, now that I've found the Bell Pit Boss. I find full helmets claustrophobic and 3/4 helmets too loud, as the road & engine noise seem to resonate inside. Most half helmets are round and don't fit on my oval-shaped head, but this one does. Great, comfortable fit and no "mushroom-top" look.
The flip-down windscreen is great, but the optics are less than stellar. Easy to change out, I switch from clear to tinted depending on light conditions.

Great helmet, little funny looking (it's big!!)
I'm female and bought the xs/s. Everything is wonderful about this helmet- it has superior quality construction, a great fit system with the wheel on the back, doesn't lift, is comfortable, keeps your ears warm, has quality padding, and is more than worth the money. I also love the visor.
That said, it is not a "cool" looking helmet on me. In fact, I look rather silly. I'm 5'5" and 120. I don't care how I look and buy every piece of safety gear I can with function, not style in mind. If you are a guy, maybe this helmet would look better. Function wise, I love it even though I know I should be wearing my Shoei FF.
