The Bell 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

Bell Pit Boss Helmet - Solid 4.6 5 236 236
Very Nice Quality I have not worn this much. I use it as an extra. The integration visor is great. Quality is top notch. October 31, 2015
Hot, but I like the visor and the fit adjustment. I have a Bell Drifter (now obsolete) and it does not have a visor or shield, so I got the Pit Boss. There is no air flow in either of these helmets, and they do get hot. In bright sun the view from behind the standard dark shield seems quite cloudy and distorted compared to sunglasses. I put a clear shield on this lid so I can ride with sunglasses during the day, and still have eye protection at night. The visor does help shade the sun from my eyes at times and the straps fit much better than the ones on the Drifter. If you must have a Harley logo helmet, they sell this same helmet, but for a much higher price. September 21, 2015
Best Features- neck curtain with speaker pockets and pull down visor. I own 2 of these helmets! I have one set up with my scala for my Garmin and the other set up for the infotainment system on my 2015 Harley. Helmet is comfortable for long or short trips. It is unique in having the neck curtain with ear pockets for communication and a pull down visor. I personally like the adjustable band for a snug fit, but it is easily removed if you prefer. The matte black finish shows more wear than the gloss black. Overall I think this is an excellent helmet. September 11, 2015
Good helmet with some issues Overall I love the styling and fit of this helmet, but it does have some quirks that people should know about. The strap is mounted too close to the center of the helmet, which makes it ride too close to the throat. I compensate by lifting up at the front. The helmet fit adjuster hangs down quite a bit in the back, and can rub at the base of my head; this is even more of an issue when lifting up at the front to compensate for the chin strap. Finally, the visor is positioned fairly close to the face. I wear glasses and it takes a little bit of effort to get the visor past them. As such, I rarely flip the visor up & down. The visor operation is somewhat stiff, making it harder to work around my glasses; the plus side is that there is no wind induced vibration in the visor (unlike my old Scorpion EXO-100 which chattered). October 26, 2015
Go to in warm weather I love this helmet. Once you get it properly adjusted it is very comfortable. The only way I can see to improve it would be to add some vents on the top. September 8, 2015
would recommend Good product shipment was right on time n fit was perfect September 7, 2015
Excellent helmet exactly what I was looking for. Been riding in the nice warm weather for a few weeks and happy to say this is a superb fitting helmet that is dot certified. The flip down visor is OK however I prefer riding with my sunglasses. As far as noise I sit behind a fairing and it let's me hear the bike and the environment around me which is what I wanted. My old half helmet was not dot and it flopped around too much from the mild buffeting I get when I start to reach 70 and this helmet sits snugly on my head minimizing the sloght buffeting i get definatly a major improvement. Now I don't look like a mushroom head. I chose white and it is really cooler in temperature than my black and grey lid. I highly recommend this helmet for the riding I enjoy. BTW my ride has changed to a 2014 ctx1300. August 31, 2015

Thomas S: Adjustable size and drop down visor Oct 18, 2015
KURT O: My first helmet was a Bell Star and i always thought highly of the brand. I noticed the large number of (positive)reviews for this helmet vs all the comparable ones. The adjustable size was important as was the pull down tinted visor. Oct 11, 2015
SARAH C: Anthony's video of it was great - very informative. Also, it has great reviews. Thanks Anthony! Sep 22, 2015
Scott S: Clean look. Awesome visor. Special fit. Sep 21, 2015

Victor M: In need of a good summer helmet Aug 29, 2015
Robert T: Best half helmet i have ever owned. Just bought one for my wife and she loves it also. Works great with Sena SMH-10 also Aug 29, 2015
Thomas H: Great helmet for summer and the adjustment works great. Aug 17, 2015

David B: Fit option and style. Seems like a better choice than the Scorpion EXO C110 Aug 3, 2015
john j: Tried it on at the HD dealership and its the best fitting helmet I've ever had on my head. Wish it had the HD logo but without it i save $100 Jul 13, 2015
Richard B: Review Jul 9, 2015
Heidi H: adjustability, brand, quality Jul 8, 2015
Mark B: I like the adjustable fit. I have a bicycle helmet with the same thing and it takes care of that feeling that you might lose your hat. Jul 8, 2015
Steven L: Needed something cooler, yet protective, for commuting and short jaunts in the hot weather instead of baking in in my preferred agressive-riding Arai. Jul 7, 2015
John B: This helmet has great reviews (both by Revzilla and consumers). As I was looking for a good fitting half helmet for the summer months this seemed to fit the bill. I can't wait to try it out! Jul 6, 2015
Steve N: This is ok / not the most comfortable helmet. My Sena speakers work well with this helmet. I just like my other helmet without the speaker pockets which is more comfortable. It has its place in my gear and I use it regularly when I need speakers in my helmet. Probably a much safer helmet than the more comfortable HD type bucket. (I just need to get used to it) Jul 6, 2015
Jerry H: Top quality product. Jun 25, 2015
Fred D: I have owned Bell helmets for many, many years. Always top quality. Jun 24, 2015

I'm a good Mother. Have a fun day.
Jun 6, 2015
John T: New cruiser wanted to try a half helmet. This one looks nice, reports indicate stays on head while at highway speed, visor fits over glasses, light weight, DOT approved. White might be a little more visible in traffic and on dark roads, matches paint on my bike. Jun 2, 2015
James D: My wife saw a couple wearing these at a rally. I've been looking for one ever since so she could try it on at the store. I haven't found a store with one yet so I ordered it on line. The small/xs is pretty small but we're keeping it for now. I've ordered a medium for my wife to try as well and if she sticks with the small/xs, I'll keep the medium. This is a really good looking helmet. -Think terminator 2 in the cop outfit. Jun 1, 2015
michael l: Quality helmet low fit and adjustable. Will write a review if all is true. May 7, 2015
Casey C: This helmet has some great features, and I wanted a helmet that would give me a little more wind in my beard. Although, I have to wear goggles with it because the wind whips right past the pull down sun visor and makes my eyes watery. So, it's a trade-off. Still a great helmet. Apr 28, 2015
Ira S: I liked the idea of adjustable fit Apr 19, 2015
Brian G: It's a sharp looking helmet, adjustable sizing is a huge plus, but having the video on your website is what made the sale. Apr 18, 2015

M J: My tour rides take me all over in all weather my ride to Alaska it rained on me almost every day and I got hailed on 4 times that's why I bought 2 helmets. I always travel with two helmets , love them both, fit ,comfort, looks both are exceptional. Dec 17, 2014

Hilliard C: I wear eye glasses so I was interested in this because of the pull down sun visor and the extra removable padding around the neck and ears for cooler days. Oct 26, 2014
Doug B: Tried this helmet on at an area motorcycle gear shop. Helmet is very comfortable, and adjusts easily using the adjustable band. I also like the versatility afforded by the removable liner. And.....you don't look like a Mario Bros character. Oct 18, 2014
Greg W: Moved to florida from colorado wanted a open face helmet instead of my full face for cruising around town it gets pretty hot here also my other helmet is black ordered a white helmet to be more visible Oct 17, 2014
Wayne R: Advanced design and materials, light weight, cool for hot weather riding in Hawaii, Bell reputation, DOT rated, good reviews. Oct 7, 2014
Griffin P: Style and fit. Oct 2, 2014
Brian K: Had the Nolan Super Cruise helmet since 2010, which I really liked, but had to replace after I got in an accident this past January. Seems Nolan no longer manufactures half helmets. Finally chose the Pit Boss which has proven to be a great fit and design - the ratchet in the back really does it's' job. My only issue is that I wish the helmet had vents (like the Nolan had). Maybe Bell should offer a version of the Pit Boss with vents instead of a retractable visor (hint, hint)? Sep 15, 2014
Eugene M: Returned. After trying several times did not like the adjustable sixe/fit feature. Sep 11, 2014
Florencio G: Great half helmet, better than my current Harley Davidson half helmet. Helmet sits low, does not lift at high speed and looks great. Sep 8, 2014

William B: When I lived i NY I always had a convertible full helmet. Now that I live in Florida where it is currently bloody hot and there are no helmet laws, I think that this shorty will encourage me to wear a helmet without me bursting into flames due to the weather. Aug 9, 2014

D O: good reviews Apr 30, 2014
Richard H: Research made it the best buy for my buck. Will see how it performs. Apr 29, 2014
MICHAEL M: Light weight helmet with adjustment dial for a comfortable fit. Apr 21, 2014
Peter F: This is an excellent choice to replace one that became compromised when I went down on pavement at 50 mph. My previous helmet didn't show any excessive signs of damage but good safety sense requires replacement once a helmet has protected your noggin once. It's cheap insurance to protect the few grey cells I have left. Apr 17, 2014
Kyle W: Great look and comfort. The strap is very soft and doesn't cut into your face or chin and the flip down visor is tinted perfectly. The only thing I might cry about (like one tear, no more) is the adjuster in the back digs in your neck a little, but after wearing it around some you don't really notice it anymore. Overall, this is a great helmet! Apr 6, 2014
Steven G: Low profile, DOT approved, adjustable. Apr 5, 2014
sebastien O: After watching the review on youtube ( RevZilla) Mar 30, 2014

William S: Good reviews. Need a summer helmet that doesn't make you look like a mushroom Mar 22, 2014
Scott S: For warmer times of the year. Also, I have issues with my neck and this helmet is supposed to be one of the lightest on the market but still DOT approved. Mar 18, 2014
Tyler H: Looks good and has speed adjust system on the back Feb 17, 2014
Roger S: ability to adjust size, flip down visor, name brand, good reviews. Feb 16, 2014
Brian W: Looked good! Reviews were great!! Feb 13, 2014
Abigail B: This is my first time buying a helmet online without trying it on. I became confident to purchase this Bell because of all of the great reviews from almost 100 customers! I've heard great things about Bell and am so excited to try out this half helmet! I live in south Florida and the heat is wicked! I need something light and ventilated...I thought the Pit Boss would be great for my riding conditions and look hot! Lol! With free shipping and free returns how could I go wrong? Feb 9, 2014
Charles F: I've used Bell helmets before and found them to be comfortable and fit well. Jan 25, 2014
Robert G K: I like the smaller,lower profile size of this helmet and the flip down visor that I think will be handy with my prescription glasses. Dec 28, 2013
Gregory G: Great helmet ,excellent design ,fit very well ,gives a nice profile on a bike ,not too big , very light , adjustable , just the best open face helmet on the market. Dec 23, 2013
Sean M: The reviews looked promising, I have a selection of helmets a needed a good DOT half helmet -which I prefer to wear. This one seemed good. Nov 13, 2013
Louis W: Purchased this hemet mainly for the light weight and easy adjustment. The cool looks of helmet was just a bonus, plus I got tired of my buds bragging how great this helmet was. Oct 27, 2013
Mike H: I have a friend that has one and I liked the looks of it. Oct 18, 2013
Charles N: Excellent fit and quality. Needed DOT helmet. Oct 16, 2013
Paul S: Reviews Oct 2, 2013
Mark F: I have been looking for a 1/2 helmet that is safe and dot approved. I have a full face modular helmet that works great, but during the summer it gets very hot. I also wanted a 1/2 helmet that did not look like a mushroom and was low profile. I wear glasses so the pull down shield is key for me. I hope this works out for me as I am very picky and if it does not fit correctly I will be returning it.
Sep 15, 2013
Chris B: Great brand, low profile helmet made of materials I trust and it looks comfortable. The drop down visor is nice and I will probably use it in a clear color for night riding....sunglasses during the day. Sep 14, 2013
Kevin S: I have been looking for a new helmet all year and this seems to be the best one for me. I will soon find out. Sep 8, 2013

Anthony B asked: In the video, Anthony mentions the ability to remove the visor - is he talking about the internal sun visor or the "bill" of the helmet? If the bill can be removed, does the internal sun shade still function?

Thanks in advance!

Jason M: Hi Anthony.
I purchased this helmet in 2012 so, assuming the model hasn't changed, I'll try and answer for you.
In short you could remove the peak (which is what I assume you're looking to do) and the visor will still work...however the middle of the peak has a 'grommet' pin that seems to go through helmet. So if you remove the visor/peak you'll have a small hole.
Hope this helps?

Edgar G: The bill or visor can be removed and the sunshade functions normally. I bought a med and found it too tight until I removed the adjustment parts. Have 2 of these helmets now and they are great since I removed the sizing parts. Suggest you buy a size larger then you would normally. You can always adjust smaller. Jun 26, 2014

Julian M: You can remove the internal visor (to replace it or change from tinted to clear) but the "bill" of the helmet is integrated into the shell.

The visor retracts into the helmet itself...it doesn't make any content with the bill.

stephen r: The bill on the helmet is held on by two screws, one on each side of the helmet. You can see them in the side view of the helmet. You can remove the bill and the sun shade will still function. Jun 26, 2014

A shopper asked: What's the wind noise like with this type of helmet? I normally wear foam ear plugs with my full-face helmet to reduce that high-pitched frequencies and can only assume that you don't get that type of squeal when you're more open with a helmet like this. I would really like an alternative helmet for hot-weather riding. Nov 22, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alan H: To some degree it depends on what you are riding (ie do you have a windshield) and where (screaming down the highway or around town?) Airflow over the helmet and visor is smooth and as you note, there is no high pitched noises associated with wind squeezing in through vents. That said, it is an open face helmet, so there is certainly wind noise as it goes past your ears and the helmet strap. I rode it from Virginia all the way to Florida on secondary roads on a big Twin with a shortie wind screen, spending 6-8 hours per day on the bike. I wore foamies for hearing protection and at the end of the day had no issues with "hum" or reduced hearing from the noise level. It is not "quiet" as it is open face, but the wind noise from that airflow is manageable and very pleasant on warm days. Nov 23, 2013

DENNIS M: My advice,..... rent, borrow, buy a cheap pot, whatever....a half-helmet to experience riding with one. That's all I wear (been riding 48 years). Before you invest in what I have found to be the most comfortable helmet to-date because it is a drastic jump from full-face to half. But if noise is your only concern, wear ear plugs or some form of noise protection because there is always wind, pipes, traffic, etc. I do on extended trips because it helps cut down of fatigue. If you make the move, you'll love this helmet. My son (18) balked 'til he tried one on then bought it. Hope this helped. Nov 22, 2013

Lynne G: Wind noise is bothersome while riding without my wind shield but that is to be expected. With my windshield on it is no problem but I still wear foam ear plugs on long highway runs to protect my hearing. This is by far the most comfortable helmet I have owned. I would recommend this helmet highly. It is light, does not make you look like a bobble head and adjustable for you comfort. Nov 22, 2013

Len D: This is a great lightweight helmet, and with foam earplugs wind noise should not be an issue. Of course that will depend on other factors (windshield, fairing etc), but I get no wind noise generated by the helmet. I've also recommended this helmet to friends, and everyone who has one really likes it. Nov 22, 2013

Al S: I'd go larger. The adjustable band should allow you to get a good fit. Mine was a snug fit when it was all the way out and became a little uncomfortable after a while. I remove the adjuster and now it fits perfectly. Great helmet! Great company! Feb 11, 2015

Julian M: The sun shade will work at night but it will have a similar effect of wearing sunglasses at night...your visibility will be negatively effected. When I plan to ride into the evening hours, I wear my transition 7-Eye riding glasses. They won't darken when the visor is down and at night I can lift the visor and have clear eye protection.

Brad B: You can order a second visor in CLEAR COLOR for about $10 and snap that in for night driving, but the shaded visor comes standard with the PB Helmet. I switch back and forth because the visor won't fit well over my sunglasses. Also the visor helps screen the wind better than sunglasses, and actually helps with the wind noise some. Nov 4, 2014

Randy L: This helmet fits small, based on my experience. I think it is also best suited for rounder heads than mine. I usually take a L - XL so that is what I bought in this helmet. However, after a few weeks of using it, I had to stop as it seemed to fit too tight and was giving me a headache. That said, it is a nice-looking helmet and seems well made. Feb 16, 2015

A shopper asked: Hi,

My hat measurement is exactly 58 cm - which sits mid-way between a Medium and Large Pit Boss.

My usual size in an open faced Harley Davidson helmet is Large – medium is way too tight.

As the Pit Boss is adjustable would the Medium give me a better fit?

steve y: Im a new owner of a large PB. All I can say is if its to small you will be in pain and not like it. If its a tad to big, you can always wear a rag underneath. Also remember you have the contraception in the back that helps adjust the fit. I would go for the large.

Just my opinion

Chris I: Bryan. I have a 2012 electraglide limited and a medium and a large pit boss helmet. Neither will fit without first unsnapping the rear ratchet system so that it pushes inside the helmet. My large just fits inside the opening but is VERY tight. I wouldn't ride with it this way.

David M: Go with the medium. The adjustment setup around the back of your noggin does a great job cinching the helmet down. On any other half helmet I would recommend trying it on first if you're on on the fence but wouldn't have any reservations about going up a size on this one. Oct 14, 2013

Len D: This helmet has a thumb wheel size adjuster so if you are slightly smaller than the max size for a small, order the small and adjust the fit with the thumb wheel. If your head is larger than the max size for small, order the medium and use the adjuster to fit. Oct 14, 2013

Is the Titanium more of a Grey color?
My bike color is Vivid BLK and Charcoal grey.
I've seen other helmets that say the are Titanium and they look more brown and grey combined the Pit Boss looks to be more of a grey.
Also if i order and do not like the color can i return it for another color and what would be my cost on a return and reship on the same item but different color?

Sean P: I'm not sure about the color options. I have bought this helmet twice and both times I got it in matte black. As for putting a head set in I guess you could as long as you keep the ear warmers on and used a boom mic. The ear warmers have two pockets in them (one for each ear), I have used them for speakers and they hold them close to my ears. But the ear warmers are detachable and if you decide to take them off then there really isn't a place for the head set speakers. Overall this is an excellent helmet and I really enjoy the adjustable base of the skull feature, it really keeps my helmet in place at high speeds and the helmet doesn't rise at all Aug 17, 2015

The Bell Pit Boss Helmet is new from Bell. It's going to do a handful of
things pretty well, but really the key takeaways, and I have the checkered
pattern in front of me this is one of the graphic models, is that this is a
half helmet that's going to be DOT and my favorite, favorite thing about
this is the way that it fits. Intermediate, oval head shape is going to fit
most riders. It's not too long front to back, not too round, but what
they've done is they've managed to use an EPS that keeps the DOT but
doesn't give you that Toad from Mario Kart type of look.

A lot of times with DOT half helmets they sit really, really high on the
head and you have people say "Well I don't want to look like I'm wearing a
mushroom so I'm going to go with something that is more of a brain bucket."
And what you end up with is a non DOT helmet or a helmet that is less
comfortable or less safe. Not the case here with the Bell Pit Boss.

So what you have is a nice internal guts to it that are going to be wicking
and comfortable, but one of the keys here, the first thing that I'm going
to hone in on, is the speed dial system from Bell that you see on the back
here. It's really, its bicycle technology, Easton-Bell makes tons and tons
and tons of helmets for lots of different types of riding, even hard hats,
they just make helmets. And what they've done is they've taken technology
that allows you to custom fit the circumference of this piece here that's
going to fit just along, and it's not going to be uncomfortable. It sits
underneath the back of the ridge of your head and there's actually a snap
in here so it's multi positionable so if I snap it out here you're going to
see that it comes down, you see how there's multiple points that it
connects to the helmet.

And what it allows you to do, as I snap it back in, it allows you to keep
this helmet from lifting of its speed. So whether you're riding its speed,
or where ever you position it on your head, it's going to want to go like
that when the wind hits it, and by having this really comfortable
technology here in the back that you can loosen and tighten it's going to
allow you to keep it down. This is straight from the bicycle world.

Looking at this helmet too, as far as the shell composite, it's a tri
composite which is Bell's high end material for lightweight, 900 grams on
this guy so it's very, very lightweight for what it is. A solid is
available as well. Removable visor and the other thing about it is it has a
removable cold weather neck curtain. So double D-ring closure. I'm going to
open it up here, let's look at it. I'm going to zip out this neck liner and
show you what it looks like when you pull it off.

So, notice it's a snap there, pull the leather piece down. This is for cold
weather riding and we're just going to zip it off, it's very easy to do.
Zips all the way around. Every Bell Pit Boss has this included. And there
is my fleece-lined neck liner for colder weather riding.

When I do that you can see the speed dial system very, very clearly and you
can also see where it sits. Remember everybody has that occipital ridge in
the back of there head, that's kind of where your head slope changes. This
is going to sit right below it and be very, very comfortable.

So let us know what you think of the Bell Pit Boss Helmet. It's a half
helmet; it's the fit that you need to hone in on here. The other thing I
didn't mention it has a flip down polycarbonate shield, so eye protection
is typically required by most states you can either wear this or rock your
sunglasses, it's up to you, and that is spring loaded.
