Bell Women's Pit Boss Pink Flames Helmet (Size 2XL Only)
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.

I love the fit and look of this helmet. I normally wear an XL, but half helmets don't quite sit right on my head. I decided to buy a size larger and fine tune it to be more snug with the Speed Dial ratchet system on this helmet- perfect fit. It is so comfortable and light weight.
I'm also very pleased with the color scheme. It is true- orange pinstripe and glossy black and gray colors. I didn't get any lift from the visor. The sun shade is a close fit to the eyes, but I had no problem with my riding shades or eye glasses.
The helmet comes with a removable neck curtain that will be great for winter or cooler days. This is a half helmet, so it will be noisy without the neck curtain. I am so pleased with the this helmet! I can see why it gotten such great reviews.

The last helmet you will buy!
I purchased this helmet after trying three (3) different half helmets, and I am glad i did. It is the best fitting helmet i have ever owned. The ratchet tightening system is awesome. It is the first helmet that wont ride up on the highway, even with a visor. Look no further.

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.

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!

XXL fits small
I purchased this helmet to compliment my new Harley Davidson. My head measurement is right at 24", so I ordered the XXL. When I tried on the helmet on, it was way to tight. I loosened up the adjustable strap as much as I could, but it wasn't enough. I read other reviews on here with sizing, but I guess I have a different shaped head.
In closing, it looks like a great helmet. I just wish it would of fit my head. Well, back to the drawing board.

Great quality lid
I love my Bell helmet. Positives: The fit is superior to my other helmets. True to size. The D Ring works great, slides easily. I loop the strap up and inside, so I particularly like the inside snap. The speed dial on the back affords a perfect fit and I don't feel the "lift" anymore. The drop down visor is lower than most, preventing updrafts in the eyes. The tint will be helpful when riding towards the setting/rising sun glare. Received my helmet yesterday and took a quick 117 mile ride. Had to try it out and enjoy that full moon. Looking forward to the collar this winter.
Negatives: The "Red" is not red, it's pink. It looks pink in the photo and it is. Little disappointing because my tank has a red pin-stripe. But I like this helmet enough to overlook it. A friend will re-stripe it for me. I do wish Bell would offer more than mainly black. As a woman rider, I would have liked more graphics and real color options.

excellent good looking helmet
It is exactly what I was looking for. No 'mushroom head', well made great product. It is noisy but it is an open half helmet and that is to be expected. Ear pads are nice but the best feature is the ability to use the 'speed dial' which holds the helmet on securely. Excellent design feature. I seldom use the sun visor but its a nice feature. Fairly light weight (anything lighter, what's the point) but very comfortable. You will not be disappointed.
