Bell Bullitt Retro Helmet

In the late 1960’s 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 inherits classic Star styling yet is infused with contemporary comforts and safety. 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 micro-suede lining with leather trim, metal mesh circular intake vents with a rear exhaust vent and 3D cut cheek pads with speaker pockets compliment the vintage styling and push 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.

  • Ultra low-profile fiber composite shell
  • 3 shell sizes

Great Helmet and It Keeps Getting Better
I bought the Bell Bullitt Retro Helmet primarily for style but without wanting to sacrifice protection. It has exceeded my expectations in both looks and comfort.

The leather padding is at another level from any other helmet I've owned or even tried on. I currently own six helmets including a Bell RS-1 and Bell Vortex. In terms of comfort, the Bullitt beats them all once you get it on. Initially putting the helmet on, however, can and does do a number on my ears which, I believe, are not exceptionally large or protruding. I attribute this to the leather neck roll which is stiffer than the fabric neck rolls found on other helmets. Still, once in place (and your ears are righted#, it is incredibly comfortable.

The field of view is tremendous. I read about it before buying the helmet but it was beyond what I expected. And, something I really appreciate, I'm able to comfortably wear sunglasses or eyeglasses underneath the shield. It would have been nice to have a quick release mechanism to make shield changes easier but I can live with it. I purchased a dark smoke shield but may just stick with sunglasses underneath the clear shield, especially with it getting dark so early in the winter.

The vent in the chin bar seems more for looks than functionality. Without a neck curtain and with the shape of the helmet, plenty of air makes it way underneath and up into the helmet. With that said, I have not experienced any lifting of the helmet despite riding during a high wind advisory. If there is airflow from the vents across the brow, it is minimal. I really couldn't feel it. I suppose I just have to wait until summer before learning just how hot this helmet will get. For now, it feels good.

Other than the discomfort to my ears when donning and doffing the helmet, something that seems to be getting better, and the lack of a quick release shield, the only other drawback I've experienced is a very pronounced imprint left across my forehead after a ride! After my first ride with the helmet which lasted a few hours, the imprint across my forehead lasted for several hours. Not cool and quite embarrassing. It was surprising too because I never felt any pressure or discomfort during the ride. In fact, I couldn't get over how amazing the helmet felt. The imprints across my forehead seem to be diminishing in severity and duration. I'm hoping that as the helmet continues to break-in, it will stop completely.

So, not perfect. But great. And it keeps getting better.

I ride a 2014 CB1100 and 2007 VFR800 - Not that it really matters but I like to see what other reviewers are riding and figure others might feel the same.

Love the style and function
Love the paint the subtle flake is a nice touch. Fit is true to the size chart. Breathes well doesn't get too hot or too cold while riding. Visibility with the bubble shield is fantastic. I was debating on buying this or the gringo. Ultimately ended up buying the Bullit because of the ECE certification, the visor and the added features.

Snug, but excellent as expected
The Bell Bullitt is a high-quality helmet with vintage vibe and advanced features for the retro rider. Like all Bell products, the helmet is a high-quality piece of gear. Air flow is great, and the magnet holding the face closed but enabling easy open is a nice touch. The XL is snug, but that might be because my colossal noggin runs right between XL and XXL. It ain't the cheapest, but I got it during a great RevZilla sale. Hence my bang-for-the-buck rating.

With the bubble shield, this looks like the helmet the Mercury Seven wore as they (literally) blasted into history. For that reason, I've chosen this helmet.

james h on Jan 3, 2017
The Bullitt takes me back to when I first started riding and had a Bell Star helmet. I have been riding with a half or 3/4 helmet for years but now think it is wiser to have full face coverage. With the addition of air vents to this retro helmet it was a no brainer for me. I got the look I wanted along with modern technology.
C A on Dec 30, 2016
Since getting the 25mm cheek pads, it fits me a lot better and I don't have the "folding ear" effect.
Brian C on Dec 29, 2016
i love it
linniard p on Dec 28, 2016
Second helmet to compliment my other one. This will probably be my primary since it has more protection and better fit! And it's a Bullitt!
Shaun T on Dec 28, 2016
Redesign of original helmet well done. Leather padding makes it even more retro. Even paint schemes well thought out.
Eugene R on Dec 17, 2016
I have owned Bell helmets in the past and was in the market for a full coverage model. This one fit my budget and Bell makes a great product.
Scott F on Dec 15, 2016
Minimal design and high quality. No doodads, no redundant curves and detailing, light. If the word Bullitt wasn't written on it, would be even better.
Piotr S on Dec 6, 2016

Read all the + reviews, I was looking for a retro look and this helmet suits my needs.
juan Jose B on Apr 2, 2015
I have a Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight and was using an Icon Airmada helmet. I wanted to get a helmet that had more of a retro/Harley-Davidson style that offered full-face protection. I like how the Bullitt looks especially the Titanium with the bubble shield. Many reviewers said that the view outside of the helmet is outstanding. So I am hoping for a full-face helmet with an open-face view.
Carlos P on Mar 27, 2015
I have a serious weakness for the Gulf Oil color scheme of the race cars of old so this color scheme is perfect and highly visible for NYC riding. The field of vision it offers still impresses me, several months later. I bought a pair of 40mm cheek pads to improve fit and now it stays in place and is extremely comfortable. It is a bit louder than my Shoei RF1100, so I have to use earplugs on long rides, but overall I am very happy with it.
Samuel M on Mar 8, 2015
Love the look, feel comfortable, huge sight range.

Anyone else surprised by the Matte Metallic Titanium color of the Bell Bullitt in person? It doesn't look anything like the picture. It's light gray and shinny for a matte helmet.
Michael G on Apr 26, 2016
Can the "Bullett" graphic be removed, like a sticker or decal, or is it permanent?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No the Bullit logo is painted on.
Paw here is the bell sizing chart?
Robert M on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The fit is very close to the size chart, great helmet
Can some please let me know what color leather the guts are in the Matte Metallic version?
John L on Jan 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My bullit helmet has a dark tan leather and is super soft and padded
I tried on a large at the store, I currently have a large Gringo S that's very comfortable and the Bell seemed to fit ok except that it felt tight in the forehead where the liner snaps are. The XL was a little loose but much less forehead pain. Does this break in with time or is there some other way to resolve this?
A C on Dec 1, 2016
Where is the Bullitt manufactured?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2017
