Bell Bullitt Helmet

In the late 1960s Bell released the Star, the first full-face helmet, revolutionizing the helmet and motorsport industries and setting a new standard for safety. Since then Motorcycle helmets have taken all sorts of shapes and forms, but at its essence has always been the simple and classic Star. The inherent beauty in the Star’s simplicity has made it an effective and aesthetically appealing piece of motorcycle gear that has survived the test of time.

To pay homage to the glory days of motorsport, the Bell Bullitt has inherited the classic styling of the Star, but has been infused with contemporary comforts and  crash protection. Constructed with a low-profile fiber composite shell and multi-density EPS liner, the Bullitt meets modern DOT regulations yet comes as close as possible to the look and feel of the original Star. Luxurious appointments like a micro-suede lining with leather trim, metal mesh circular intake vents, rear exhaust vent and 3D cut cheek pads with speaker pockets, compliment the vintage styling and shoot the Bullitt into the 21st century.

Named after the brash detective, played by iconic actor and motorsport enthusiast Steve McQueen in the cult classic Bullitt, the Bell Bullitt is as much an exercise in design as it is in rider safety, breaking the mold and providing a premium retro option to the market. Put that vintage helmet back on the shelf where it belongs and pick up a Bullitt to fulfill all your retro riding dreams.

Bullitt Time.....Thoughts after a couple of weeks of ownership
I don't normally submit reviews, but on this occassion i felt compelled. The reason being i had procrastinated over this helmet for a while, but all of the reviews I read came from the 'other side' of where i was looking.
You see i've been an open face guy (Arai Freeway, Bell Custom 500) but increasingly have had niggles that i need a bit more protection on these busy UK roads.
I love the vision and connection to the surroundings that an open face brings, but shudder at the thought of using my face as a brake. The Bullitt seemed like the perfect solution, retro style, great vision but with a chinbar to save my Jaw. However most reviews seemed to come from riders moving from a modern styled full face to this, not open face to this.

Modern full face helmets are great, comfortable & safe. However i find them claustrophic, tunnel visioned and too insulated from the outside world.
Anthony's excellent video review details all you need to know about the construction and features of the helmet, so i'll give that a miss.

My opinion after a few rides on the helmet.....yes its noisy, but no noisier than my custom 500, and i like that. I can hear the bike and the environment around me. Yes its breezy...the visor is good, but does let a bit of air in, and the wind does get up under the chin bar where there is no 'padding'. Again something i like, i can wear a scarf if its chilly, and the breeze in around the visor is nothing compared to riding in an open face with shades. my chin can touch the chin bar easily, but that has a benefit. I can open and close the vent with my chin!

The fit is pretty size true. I own a Custom 500 in Large, and bought the same in the Bullitt. It was a bit tighter across the forehead, and i thought it was going to be a problem. However after a few minutes of sitting and compressing the area with my thumbs it free'd up a few mm's and was much better. Two rides in and it had packed down sufficiently to be comfy. Is it however a bit of an 'ear killer' to pull on and off, but i guess that will relax too.

So in summary a nicely built helmet (although the decals on my RSD Viva version are a little wonky!). If you are coming from a modern style full face then i expect you will find it, noisier, more breezy and maybe less padded. However if like me you are moving from an open face looking for more protection, then its an absolute gem. The same vision as an open face, a similar kind of connection to the outside world, but with the added security of a chinbar.

I rock mine with a bubble shield, but as the weather warms up I can see myself removing the visor from time to time and riding in shades or goggles

Heartbroken Vespa Girl
Hello Gentlemen! Here's a review from a woman. I am a Vespa GL 200 rider. I'm always frustrated helmet shopping because everything is either cheesy, pink, too sporty or not safe enough. I mentally conjured this helmet years ago and now it exists! So cool looking! So simple! So retro! Sadly it's going back. Small is too small. The medium is right for my crown, but leaves a gap near my cheek bones. It also feels cavernous near my ears. This helmet is a wind tunnel. It feels like a half helmet. I could feel wind all over my face. Some early am's I'm riding in 45 degrees for 20 miles to work-brrrrrrrr. I'm so disappointed. For $400 I can't stomach the ways in which it comes up short. Seems like this helmet is for warm rides only and for the price I want to LIVE in it.

A little pricey but there's nothing else like it
I went through a lot of different emotions when I first got this helmet. Initially I thought it looked awesome, then when I put it on I thought it looked a bit silly, but I wore it indoors for a bit and said sure, it's different, so I got excited again and went out with it for a ride and hated it, then two days later loved it. And I'll explain why.

I ride a Triumph T100 Bonneville and really wanted a full-face helmet but with a retro look. At first glance the Bullitt definitely fits the bill - it reminds me a lot of a James Hunt era Formula 1 helmet, think 1970's or thereabouts. So pretty cool. However because of it's shape, it's incredibly wide opening and it's very thin chin bar it does look at first a bit odd when it's actually on your head. Most full-face chin bars come up under your nose, this one sits right at your chin. It took me walking around my apartment in it to get used to the look. It did also fit a little tight, I'm usually a size Large in most helmets but went with a Medium because of the Bell/Revzilla sizing.

After concluding I ultimately did like the look I decided to commit to it and went for a ride in it. Now I live in NYC and often ride under cruising speed, say 10-15mph in slow traffic, and with my old full-face would ride with the visor up. The Bullitt with the shield up whistles something awful, even at very low speed, very loud and I hated it immediately. I was worried I'd made a huge mistake. There's nothing you can do about it, and it's because the vents on the top you are not able to close as with most full-face helmets, which I did (and to a degree still do) consider a problem. With the shield down the whistling goes away but the incredible air flow you get does also create quite a bit of noise once you get up to highway speed. Me no like. I was also struggling with the slightly tight fit but felt as though a step up in size would be too much.

So I thought 'oh no, what have I done?' $400 down the toilet. Not so. I had also ordered the silver iridium face shield which came while I was in my moment of crisis over the helmet itself and waited to put it on because I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I spoke with Revzilla and they offered to have a look at the helmet in case the whistling was a defect, but I did more research myself and came to the conclusion that the helmet just shouldn't be worn with the shield up. And to be honest, let's face it, why have a full-face helmet if you're going to ride with the shield up?

I decided to stick it out, and I'm glad I did. The whistling when I do ride occasionally with the shield up is becoming more bearable as I get used to it. The fit is becoming more comfortable as I break the helmet in. The field of view you have is incredible. And the iridium face shield? Oh man!! Does it look awesome! So now I can confidently say these are my pros and cons:

Pros
- Very light for a full-face
- Field of view, very wide particularly at the peripherals which is fantastic
- With the iridium shield on you look badass and it cuts the summer sun very very well
- Swapping face shields is quick and easy, all you need is a coin to unscrew it
- Whether it's intentional or not, there is ample room for glasses/shades
- The fit if you get it right and allow some break-in time is very snug and fairly comfortable
- The materials used are of very high quality, particularly the inner linings which are wicking and removable
- There is no other helmet out there like it

Cons
- Breaking it in does take some patience
- The whistling is a problem if you ever want to ride with the shield up, and the vents can't be closed (actually the chin vent can but that isn't what causes whistling)
- Even with the shield down it can get a bit loud
- Considering the lack of features this helmet has it is very expensive

So yes, there are things I like and maybe still do not like. It could be a better helmet for $400. I would have been a lot happier at a $300 price point. With that said, you perhaps are spending the extra $100 on the fact that there is no other helmet that looks like this, with a lift-up shield (I'm looking at you Gringo!), that is DOT rated, without ordering something from Europe or Japan that will cost you three times as much. If you are looking for the best retro full-face helmet that your American dollars can buy, as I was, I'm pretty confident in saying that this is it.

Beautiful but painful
The Bullit is absolutely gorgeous, however...
The first (and last) time I tried it on my intermediate oval shaped head, the two snaps at the front of the liner completely dug into my head. It was so painful, I'm actually surprised more people don't complain about it. The liner is very thin and the hard plastic snaps underneath make the helmet unwearable for me. Maybe it's not so much an issue for those with rounder shaped noggins.
Having said that, Revzilla's customer service is excellent and they immediately sent out a RMA and shipping label.
I regret the fit issue, because the retro-cool Bell Bullit is one of the best looking full face helmets on the market.

Outstanding Helmet
The helmet is amazing. Fit and finish are great. I have always wanted FF protection but the field of vision of a 3/4. This combines them perfectly and looks super cool. The blue flake looks like my 1975 schwinn with the banana seat. I wanted to comment on the open vents. They vent to channels underneath the padding inside the helmet. I rode in a rainstorm. 10 miles in stop and go traffic. I was drenched everywhere but there was no moisture in the helmet. The vents are covered with mesh and the inside of the helmet was bone dry. Under the liner was dry. The inside of the vent holes were dry.

Buy this Helmet for the Looks...Otherwise, Keep Looking!
This is the second helmet I have purchased from Revzilla. The first is a Shark Speed-R Duke. I bought this helmet in matte black with a dark smoked shield. I wanted something light and less flashy for bombing around town or making quick trips. I plan to use my Shark in the wintertime and for longer distance riding.

Prior to the Shark, I have only ridden with Arai RX7-RR helmets. Unfortunately, I took a hiatus from motorcycling for about a decade. Upon my return, I'm learning that motorcycle helmets have gone many exciting directions. I have been curious about other brands. I have tried on Shoei helmets but, alas, my head is too round and they pinch my head to the point of pain.

I love Arai Helmets but I hate their prices. $700 for something that will "expire" in 5 years? Experimenting with the Shark and now Bell, I'm beginning to see how Arai can price their helmets the way they do. It is almost as if all of the other helmet manufacturers have conspired to bolster Arai's quality by designing helmets that just can't have it "all". It is difficult to compare other helmets with Arai, as it is now evident that Arai is head and shoulders ahead of the pack.

Trying this helmet on, back to back, with my Arai, the Arai encompasses and "hugs" your entire head with a soft cloud of "love"! Little pillows and surrounding support all around your head! While the Bell Bullitt outlines some of the main curves of your head--forehead, ears, and cheeks--with a semi-abrasive, crunchy feeling interior one would expect in a super non-premium, discount helmet.

This helmet is light. It feels feather light and with the wide field of vision, it is true that one can almost forget it is on. However, with the light feeling also comes a "thin" and "cheap" feeling. While my old Arai RX7-RR is light, it feels very well built. The Shark would be the "Goldilocks" of my three brand experiences. This Bell Bullitt feels..."Styrofoam'y"!

I'm not sure how everyone can comment or advertise that the interior of this helmet is "very soft" or "very comfortable". To me, these folks have probably never rode with an Arai. The "micro suede" feels rough and not at all plush or soft.

I can't really comment on the venting as heaps of air comes up from under the helmet, where a chin curtain would be on other helmets. The neck-roll also allows a lot of air in from behind and to the sides. I didn't notice an incredibly alarming amount of noise. Then again, I usually ride with my face shields up, until about 70MPH so I rather like wind.

The field of vision is tall and wide. For me, it's almost an information overload. Peripheral vision is also a lot greater than any other helmet I've tried. I almost feel like I have radar!

The chin strap works fine and swapping shields is pretty simple once you can figure out how the discs reattach--supplementary manual explains the grooves.

Overall, this helmet is strictly a FASHION statement with a DOT rating. I would've liked a Snell rating for something that boasts such contemporary and quality construction. After all, the Biltwell Gringo S--the helmet that the Bullitt competes with--is also DOT rated but costs 1/2 as much.

I went with the Bell over Biltwell simply because I was swayed by Anthony's overview video. I wanted a "super premium" helmet with a vintage look but built with today's technology. However, I was expecting Arai guts in a vintage shell. I was wrong.

This helmet is nice enough for me to keep and not return--mainly because the only other helmet with this style is the Polycarb Gringo--but I would not say I'm super satisfied with my purchase. I feel the helmet's build quality has been somewhat exaggerated in the advertisements and in others' reviews. To me, the price tag warrants a much more supple and plush interior with better thought out features (e.g. chin curtain, drop down visor, and/or a Snell rating.

My advice is to buy this helmet if you absolutely love the look and don't mind sacrificing comfort. In that respect, yes. I would recommend this helmet for someone wanting a vintage styled helmet with a non-expired EPS,

For someone looking for the best helmet available, save up and get and Arai. For someone looking for the best bang for their buck? I'm fairly certain that there are several helmets available in the $400.00 range with more comfort, better build quality, and a higher safety rating.

Bottom line: The only thing "super-premium" about this helmet is the super-premium price tag to sport a vintage-styled helmet. That's what you're paying for and if you are willing to shell out $400 for it, it shall be yours.

A little heavy - small sizing
I was looking forward to the release of the Bell Bullitt. I have a big head but even the XXL did not fit. Not sure what Bell was up to in terms of sizing. A lot of Harley riders are big men that needs big sizes. I was willing to shell out the money they wanted but just could fit in my head. It's a little heavy too this helmet. The interior liner looks good and the helmet looks good. I really wanted it to fit. Anyway I went with the other full face retro helmet and it fits monster heads like mine plus it is EXTREMELY comfortable. I am almost glad the Bullitt didn't fit. I like the culture behind the other guys too.

Excellent for the right rider
Well, I've been looking for a new helmet for quite awhile, and I just got one of these as a Christmas gift. Only one ride in so far, and I liked it!

It was about 60 degrees and breezy for my first ride, and I put in about 60 miles, mixed freeway, country road, and city streets. The helmet's louder than my older Shoei full face, but surprisingly, at highway speed, I had much less buffeting than I get with the Shoei. Not sure why, but this is a nice surprise.

There's a bit of draft that leaks through the gap between the visor and the helmet, not really an issue, as I wear glasses, but might bother someone who wears contact lenses. One nice benefit of this is that the shield is much less fog-prone than my Shoei.

I've read some reviewers that complain about noise from the forehead vents, and it seems to be highly dependent on your riding position; with the head down in more of a sport bike "attack" position, the vents whistle noticeably, but in a more standard bike riding position, the noise disappeared. Note that I wear earplugs when riding, so there may be noise that I'm not hearing...

The Bullitt has a HUGE eye port, much larger than my Shoei, or any other full face helmet that I've ever seen. I noticed a major increase in peripheral vision with the first left turn out of my neighborhood, a really nice thing. The chin bar is much lower than on my Shoei, practically out of view; it's almost like riding with a 3/4 helmet with a flat shield. This is a new experience for me, as I've never owned an open-faced helmet, but now I understand why they're so popular. In fact, when it warms up, I look forward to trying out my new goggles with this helmet. It'll be interesting to try riding with goggles on the street; I've only done so on a dirtbike before. It should be even more like riding with an open faced helmet. I'll let you know.

The interior of my black helmet is a beautifully finished brown leather, with a red leather pull tab on the d-ring. There's also a very effective snap at the end of the chinstrap, which keeps the strap in place. One of my pet peeves with my Shoei was that the strap is really long, with no retention system. This often results in it flapping annoyingly at speed.

I found the helmet interior to be quite snug, but it felt great after about 15 minutes. I expect it'll feel even better as the leather breaks in. The one complaint I had is that the neck roll leaves a rather small opening to put your head into, meaning that it felt as if I was going to tear my ears off the first time I put it on. Hopefully, this will get easier as things break in. Fitting my glasses in was quite easy once the helmet was on, so if you prefer sunglasses to wearing a shield or goggles, this is a viable option.

Overall, I'm really pleased with the helmet so far. It is beautiful, and seems to function really well for what I need. I'll do an update this summer; by then it should be breaking in a bit, and the hot Arizona summer will provide a good test of its ventilation!

Style Points With Some Drawbacks
Previous helmets have been Shoei and Arrai, both in size medium.
Medium Bullitt was also correct for me.
Fit is comfortable.
Field of view is amazing.
With shield in up position there is a wicked whistle.
Mirrored shields scratch easily and are expensive.
Not SNELL rated.
Liner not 100% removable/replaceable.
Paying for a lot of style and a mediocre form of protection.
But I bought it, that's how good it looks.

Looks. It looks even better in person. The shield could use a rubber seal, the mating surface is hard. The shield does not seal well against the helmet and it will rattle sometimes. It does look great though and it is fairly comfortable (a little tight across the forehead, hopefully that will break in)

Wanted a full face helmet with a very large port with an open face "feel" not covering large parts of my face. Like the retro look for my nostolgic looking bike.

Barrett K on Mar 7, 2016
because of the style and because is not that expensive as others that i liked
pablo r on Feb 24, 2016
I choose this helmet because of its retro inspired look along with the wide field of view. Mostly all full face helmets today seem like they are tailored for sport bike riders. So while they look great on a sport bike, they don't so much on a cruiser. But in my opinion the bullitt seems like it will look good know matter what you ride.

I took this helmet on a 2 month motorcycle trip over 7000 miles. the only thing that fell off was the clip for the strap. I need to replace the windshield since it took a beating but that's normal. It's a bit loud and I wish there was a way to close the top vents when ridding in cold weather.
Sergio A on Jan 26, 2016
I like the look of it
EBRAHEEM A on Jan 9, 2016

Joseph E on Jul 19, 2015
Wanted an open face, but worried about the lack of protection for the jaw. This looks like a great compromise.
Allen W on Jun 15, 2015
Sleek, simple and highly rated helmet.
Nickk C on Jun 15, 2015
Bell has a great reputation and this helmet has great style.

Retro styling. Oval head shape. Quality finishes. Been using it for a while now and love it.
LINCOLN P on Apr 26, 2015
retro style with modern protection....
Do not like the brown interior or chrome trim... do like the gloss black... this would have been a "no brainer" with black trim and interior...
Took me two weeks to come to terms on this color way....
mark s on Apr 20, 2015
because its awesome
mathe v on Apr 15, 2015
Great retro styling with current technology airflow, comfort, and safety. I am also looking forward to the wide viewing area of the eyeport.

There's no school like the old school.
Tudor R on Jan 7, 2015
I guess its the best retro style helmet I have come across. I dont really perfer full face helmets cause of visibility hinderance. But the reviews from the buyers, all praise visibility and light weight of this thing.

Let see when it arrives
Hasan A on Dec 9, 2014
Great looking retro helmet
Johnny C on Sep 1, 2017
Gorgeous
Joseph P on Apr 27, 2017
How does the field of vision and noise level compare to the Gringo (not Gringo S)? The articles I've read up to this point give the Gringo the win on both aspects.
Monkeyman on Jun 8, 2016
The shape description is different than what's in the video. He says it's an intermediate oval, slightly longer front to back. But the listing says it's more round. Which is it?
Chris B on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'd say more oval
Is this helmet SAI AS1698 certified for on road use in australia?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought mine from Australia
What Bluetooth unit do you recommend for the Bell Bullit. I want one that fits like it was factory installed. Where does the battery unit go? Will it impact fit/comfort? Thanks.
Todd G on Sep 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the Sena smh10r in my Bell Bullit. It fits great and works just as well.
Hey there! I'm looking to get one of these great looking helmets and have a question about sizing. Head is bang on 59cms but I wear glasses and wondering if I should get the large or XL? Thanks in advance.
A shopper on Sep 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wear a medium in most helmets and this helmet fits me perfectly! I have found no difference with wearing glasses and not wearing glasses. There seems to be a nice little snugness at the ears that is not impeded for me when glasses are being worn. Hope that helps!
Is the fit/sizing similar to the Bell 500 helmets?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I compared it to the Custom 500 yesterday in a store. The Bullitt (medium) is bigger than the Custom 500 (medium) The Custom 500 is tighter at the forehead, Bullitt is not as tight at the forhead but very big around the cheeks.
Does the shield have detents or is it only usable fully open or fully closed?
Adrian H on Jan 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There are detentes to keep the visor a different positions. They work well enough to keep the visor in the "set" position at highway speeds
Any thoughts about not being able to close those top vents in the rain?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: **official word from Bell** for what it's worth... "We would not recommend wearing the Bullitt in the rain if getting moisture in the forehead vents is a concern. The helmet was tested in a variety of conditions."
What speaker system would you suggest for using in this helmet?
Justin R on Apr 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Im using jaybird bluetooth headphones. A little spendy, but work well. Kind of a learning curve to get helmet on with buds in, but patience and practice gets it. I didnt want a big comm device or controle module. Anyways, enjoy. Please let me know if you find a better solution.
I measure 56CM the fit guide says small 55-56 and medium 57 to 58. Not sure if I should squeeze into the small or go for the medium. Wondering what the experts would recommend?
A C on Jul 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am the same way. Medium was way too big, and the small created minor pressure point issues. I say give the small a try and see what you think.
