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.

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.
