Great helmet
I purchased this for several reasons. I wanted this style, the sun shield and the detachable neck and ear curtain. I ride in NorCal so it works well for the 30 degree mornings. I had an accident since I bought it and can truthfully say it didn't move at all when I went down. I replaced it with the same helmet. It's a great helmet fits well love the fact that it's adjustable.

Overall excellent
Very light, doesn't look like a character from Mario-kart, fits is perfect! I wear a large(intermediate oval shape) and the fit could not be better, probably the most comfortable helmet I've ever had. Speed-dial system is very similar to what you'd find on a welding helmet. The visor is a little stiff at first but gets smoother after you play with it and covers not only your eyes but the whole area around them! Air flows what you'd expect in a half-helmet but I do get a little sweaty around the hair line when I get home. The neck curtain is easy enough to add and remove but being 90 degrees at the moment I have not yet needed it. Only two complaints I hear about this is it doesn't have alot of room for glasses and there's a magical, nonexistent Speaker pocket. I like to wear either Revision Sawfly or Oakley M-frame glasses under the built in visor and there's plenty of room for them in fact I forget I'm wearing them. The Speaker pockets are inside the removable neck curtain, so if you take it out you wont have them. If your not use to a half-helmet it going to be very loud but using the curtain will help as will ear plugs, headphones, etc. Looks great and has all the feature you need, none you don't.

This helmet is ultra-light, built with advanced technology, very comfortable, DOT approved, and made by Bell. Buy it.
The fit of the Bell Pit Boss helmet is somewhat unique, very secure, and stays put with no lifting at speed. The TriMatrix construction is super strong and light weight. I wear prescription glasses and the visor fit over them, no problem. The visor attachment needs a little improvement - my only negative point; but if you open and close the drop down visor carefully, it works fine. The open face gives plenty of air flow even with the zip out liner in place. I ride on the Big Island of Hawaii where it is warm and no so warm, depending on elevation; and do not find the helmet to be too warm. My ride is a Honda Shadow Aero, and I sit behind a windshield. The Pit Boss Helmet is perfect for cruising in warm or hot weather. The Bell 500 Classic saved my life over 40 years ago so I always wear a helmet, and I believe Bell is the best!

Does not work with prescription glasses
When my Bell Pit Boss helmet arrived, I was immediately impressed with the quality. This is a very, very nice helmet. Unfortunately, I had to immediately put it back in the box and return it because the visor did not come close to clearing my prescription glasses. I was very disappointed. If you don't wear glasses, buy it. If you do wear glasses, don't.

Not as pleased as I thought I would be.
I wanted a clear drop down visor. Rep at Revzilla said that if I
contacted Bell they would send me one free. That turned out
not to be true. Then the drop down visor in it came loose,
and once clicked in place, came loose again and got stuck in
the helmet. Worst drop down visor that I have encountered.
I like the style of the helmet and the adjustable feature for fit,
but this experience soured me on Bell and Revzilla.

Only Option IMHO in the Half Face
Fit was perfect for a 24.5" head using the scale, got the xl. Just happy as all schit with this helmet. I love how the lift is nearly unnoticeable. I had to return another brand that was a modular cause in the wind it lifted so hard it would choke me. Tested today at over 3 digits on the highway and still, the lift was nearly undetectable. Quality and protection are tip top. Really my only gripe is for such a sexy helmet, would love some color & pin stripe options or some decal options, something macabre and dark. The limited options listed were all out of stock but all pretty tame.

It is what it is...
I like this helmet, but it if you think that you are going to get totally away from "mushroom head" with any DOT approved half-helmet, you should manage your expectation. Not quite "Kazoo" from the flinstones, but not small either. You will likely want a bike with a windscreen if you use this helmet, as the bill on the front comes off, but is not meant to remain off. I found the size to be true, but a bit more oval than I expected. This is no problem with the "speed dial" adjustment in the back which takes up any play...think construction worker helmet..people will either love it or hate it, but for me it works. The drop down sun visor is spring loaded, so make sure that it doesn't hit your nose coming down or it is going to hurt. It is fairly easily actuated with one hand, but a bit stiff at first. It is a grey lens that is about right for most lighting situations where you want a bit of shade for your eyes. It also seems to provide some protection from bug impact, but I think I will stick to impact approved eyewear under it. Overall finish seems nice on my gloss black, although the double d rings for the chin strap are a bit cheap feeling. The included ear flap zips on and off easily and the pockets housed speakers perfectly. Overall I am happy with this helmet

This helmet has become my first choice for riding.....The half helmet works especially good here in the south with the hot summers.
I wear glasses so the sun shield saves me from having to wear sun glasses.....when winter rolls around the wind curtain should keep the ears comfortable.

Overall very nice and comfortable to wear helmet.

Harlan B on Jun 4, 2017
1. I prefer a half-helmet because the wind catches fuller helmets when I turn my head. The half-helmet stays in place.
2. The color was acceptable to me, i.e., not black, but not too light, and not eye-catching wild colors.
3. It has a removable cold-weather attachment.
4. It has a fit-adjusting knob in the back.
5. It's a Bell.

I have worn a Bell Pit Boss for the last 4 years. It is the best half helmet on the market today. Has all the features needed and is comfortable. I wish Bell still offered the flame design. Frankly the colors they have right now leave a lot to be desired. If I did not like the fit and quality of the helmet I would have gone with another brand for better colors and graphics.

can the sena smh10 be affixed and used on this helment ?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes it fits fine. I have two Pit Boss helmets and my wife and I both use the SMH 10. Goes on real easy
Will the drop down visor fit over prescription glasses?
Lukas C on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have worn my prescription glasses under the visor. The visor hits the frames on the way down, but once in position they can be adjusted to ride comfortably.
Is the Sena SPH10H Bluetooth system comparable with this Helmet?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is. Sena unit mounted on with no problem. The helmet liner has pockets for the ear phone. With the liner removed the Velcro on the ear phone will stick to the helmet strap near your ear. Great helmet.
In the video, Anthony mentions the ability to remove the visor - is he talking about the internal sun visor or the "bill" of the helmet? If the bill can be removed, does the internal sun shade still function?

Thanks in advance!
Anthony B on Jun 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Anthony.
I purchased this helmet in 2012 so, assuming the model hasn't changed, I'll try and answer for you.
In short you could remove the peak (which is what I assume you're looking to do) and the visor will still work...however the middle of the peak has a 'grommet' pin that seems to go through helmet. So if you remove the visor/peak you'll have a small hole.
Hope this helps?

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.
A shopper on Nov 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
My head circumference is exactly 23in which puts me right smack-dab in the middle of the M/L sizes. should I go up or down? Suggestions?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'd go larger. The adjustable band should allow you to get a good fit. Mine was a snug fit when it was all the way out and became a little uncomfortable after a while. I remove the adjuster and now it fits perfectly. Great helmet! Great company!
will the sun shade work at night?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The sun shade will work at night but it will have a similar effect of wearing sunglasses at night...your visibility will be negatively effected. When I plan to ride into the evening hours, I wear my transition 7-Eye riding glasses. They won't darken when the visor is down and at night I can lift the visor and have clear eye protection.
my head circumference is exactly 23in which is right in the middle of the M/L sizes. Any suggestion as to which I should get?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This helmet fits small, based on my experience. I think it is also best suited for rounder heads than mine. I usually take a L - XL so that is what I bought in this helmet. However, after a few weeks of using it, I had to stop as it seemed to fit too tight and was giving me a headache. That said, it is a nice-looking helmet and seems well made.
Hi,

My hat measurement is exactly 58 cm - which sits mid-way between a Medium and Large Pit Boss.

My usual size in an open faced Harley Davidson helmet is Large – medium is way too tight.

As the Pit Boss is adjustable would the Medium give me a better fit?
A shopper on May 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Im a new owner of a large PB. All I can say is if its to small you will be in pain and not like it. If its a tad to big, you can always wear a rag underneath. Also remember you have the contraception in the back that helps adjust the fit. I would go for the large.

Just my opinion
Texas Steve
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?
Bryan S on Nov 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
