Bell Pit Boss Helmet - Solid Colors

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 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.

Features:

  • 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

Bell Pit Boss Helmet - Solid 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. March 24, 2014
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

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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

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

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.

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
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

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
Reply to Lynne Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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

AN Deringer/ John C: This style of helmet is great for around town type of riding but above 55 - 60 mph I needed to go back to my full face Nov 23, 2013

Bryan S asked: I've been looking at the Bell pit boss.
Does anyone know if it will fit in the hard shell saddlebag of my 2009 Road King?

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.

Bryan S: thanks Chris. I guess I'd just have to hang it on the handle bars like I have been doing. I thought it would be good to get it out of the way sometimes Nov 10, 2013
Fred S: It fits in the hard saddlebag on my 2012 Road Glide Custom, if that helps. Nov 11, 2013

Bryan S: I guess I'll just have to buy one and see if it fits

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
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
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

Todd S: I usually wear a medium helmet and the medium I ordered for the Pit Boss was slightly tight. If you are between sizes I recommend going to the next larger size Oct 14, 2013

BillL: Absolutely it does, the adjustor on the back is not made to make the helmet fit, it is there so you can adjust the fit to your desire. The small shell is smaller then the XL that I wear, I can't even get my head into the small shell. May 27, 2013
