Bell Pit Boss Helmet - Solid 4.6 5 289 289
Good fit. Good value This is a good quality helmet. The fit is comfortable but snug for me. The adjustment in the back works well. I purchased a clear drop down visor for riding at night. It is a little hard to install but works well. I wish it had a few vents for airflow on top. Unfortunately this probably would keep it from getting a DOT .rating August 15, 2016
this Helmet did just what was needed, perfect I needed a helmet to be able to ride, I had a broken cheek bone and could not wear my full face helmet. this fit the bill perfectly, it also gave me the perspective of a 1/2 helmet, it was noisy, a little less with the cheek curtain on but good. At about 60 mph it started to pull up, but a little head dive and it was gone, over all a great helmet would recommend it. August 11, 2016
I like the features this product has to offer. Wasn't sure if I was going to like this helmet but after trying it out I'm completely satisfied. Like the flip down eye wear. Gives me extra sun glare protection when needed. Looking forward to riding in cooler weather so I can try out the skirt over the ears. Only one small negative. Still has a mushroom look. Overall still a nice helmet though. August 3, 2016
This product has great features Wonderful and worth the money. Very comfortable.Highly recommended. August 2, 2016
Great half-helmet This is an excellent choice for a half-helmet from a great company. Fit and finish are good as well as it's design. I'm coming from a Scorpion EXO-100 and the straps near the ears do produce more wind noise on the Pit Boss for some reason. LOVE the speed-dial adjustment feature – it really does provide a more custom and secure fit. The only real gripe is about the non-removable liner. A half-helmet at this price-level (and quality-level, really) should have one and it's a glaring omission. July 27, 2016
Great helmet except for sun shield This is a great elmet. Fits very well and doesn't move at highway speeds. The only issue I have is that the flip down sun shield isn't that good. It doesn't go down quite far enough so it is distracting looking through the bottom edge. Also, even though I wear clear rising glasses the wind gets to my eyes worse with the shield down than when it's up at highway speeds. It's almost as if it directs the wind under directly to your eyes. It's ok up to 50mph which is good for around town. July 26, 2016
Fantastic helmet..buy one Have owned a number of helmets over the past 25 years. Usually did not wear the helmets since they we itchy, the front would blow up pulling the helmet back and so forth. This Pit Boss is wonderful. You don't even know you have a helmet on and the fit is perfect. The adjustment on the back helmet snugs the helmet to a perfect fit. Fit and finish are perfect. I have the glossy black. Really happy with the purchase. July 15, 2016
Love this helmet! Purchased as a warm weather/ short ride alternative to my Arai Vector. I'm at the upper end of the Medium size chart and the fit is spot on- very snug but not uncomfortably so as it's very well padded. Quality is excellent. Love the look and the visor is perfect in terms of finish, function, and optics. Tried the Scorpion EX110 ($50 more than the Bell) - extremely disappointed with the way it looked and fit (on TOP of the head instead of AROUND the head)- would probably give up riding (at least during daylight hours) if I had to wear that one!

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.
