Bell Pit Boss Pinstripe Helmet

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.

Features:

  • Lightweight, TriMatrix composite shell—Kevlar/Carbon/Fiberglass blend
  • 2 shell sizes
    • MD: SM and MD helmets
    • LG: LG and XL/2XL helmets
  • Innovative Speed Dial adjustable fit system
  • Internal Sun Shade offers “on the fly” protection from the sun
  • Removable neck curtain for cold weather riding
  • Convenient speaker pockets make it easy to set up the Pit Boss with communication devices
  • Shield offers 100% UVA and UVB protection
  • Five-year warranty

Note: Red stripe on Red/Black helmet may appear to be more pink-ish than red.

Awesome helmet for the money!
I have been riding with a Bell Pit boss helmet for years and decided to upgrade to get the speaker pockets for my Sena SMH10. The helmet does run slightly small, my old one was a XXL so I ordered a XXXL and the fit is perfect. The adjustable feature is nice and really does a good job of "sizing it in" for that perfect feel. I also ordered the clear drop-down shield for night use where sun glasses won't be a good idea. A Few drawbacks are,... no vents of any kind for some airflow. The liner does not come out for cleaning and Bell really needs to realize that people like colors other than black and Harley orange.
If you are going to add the Sena SMH10 use the adhesive mount as the clamp will not fit between the shell and the liner and run the right side speaker wire around the front or it won't reach.

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.

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 Fit!
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.

Bell Pit Boss Helmet
Helmet is great. Lightweight, comfortable and has the built in visor which is great for those rides at sunset when your heading into the sun. I thought the sizing ran a bit small, I measured and needed a medium but the fit was just to tight. Exchanged for a large and with the adjustor the fit was much better. Helmet doesn't lift at highway speeds.

Quality helmet
I tried one on before I purchased. I strongly recommend prior to purchase. I normally wear a large helmet. I purchased the XL - 2XL and it is snug with no room for adjustment. Visor works well as my eyes are sensitive to wind but no problem. Overall quality is excellent. Recommend.

Bell Pit Boss Helmet
This is my first half helmet in over 20 years.
I wanted something light and comfortable and do believe I got just that...
The Pit Boss has a great shape and is very comfortable in the wind at highway speeds.
The flip down eye shield is pretty ok too but does touch my nose a wee bit.
The zip-off lower liner is Gr8 to remove for my swampy Washington, DC Summers.
The chin strap is easy and comfortable.
The colors an graphics are very nice.
The protection is less than a full face, but we knew that. Right?!..
I really like this helmet so far and plan on buying a second one for my girlfriend.
Thanks Bell and Thanks RevZilla!

Some times, I just want a light, open helmet with good protection when slow cruising around destinations. I use full face most of the time, but once there, something a little less obtrusive, but still substantial, can be nice for sight seeing. The Pitboss seems like a nice compromise.

Daniel F on Jan 24, 2017
This is a great half helmet that's DOT approved with a little extra lower rear skull protection vs a typical brain bucket. I really like the zip out ear and neck curtain. It helps keep me warmer from late fall into early winter riding as well as early spring miles. There are also pockets in the zip out curtain with Velcro closures for speakers. The tinted visor comes in handy once in a while when the sun is low in the sky both on early morning rides and sunset. I also like the ratcheting feature

Like the look, like the style and the drop visor added on is a nice touch. Have a bunch of helmets and this one fits the colors of both my HD's. Haven't used it on the road yet. Still winter, having quite a few 1/2 helmets though, the dial tightener is a great idea on those windy days on the open areas we ride in at times. That works for sure, tried that and can feel the snug fit. Great idea. Especially while on the road. Looking forward to being on the road with it soon.

My head measures 22.50" - 22.75". For the Bell Pit Boss, should I get a medium or a Large?
A shopper on Dec 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I found these helmits run small.. I purchased a black and red Pitboss helmit which fit ok,but the pinstripe was pink. I returned the helmit for a all black helmit and this one ran very small and I had to return it. Best to go one size up.
Can a larger visor be had for this helmet?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No I do not believe Bell sells a larger shield.
my head measures 23", what size would be best? the size chart reads large, yet some review or answers to question states the
Bell Pit Boss helmet runs small
A shopper on Dec 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a 24" head and i needed a XXXL, definitely get a size or 2 up.
Does helmet work with J&M communication headsets?
A C on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: since I do not use headsets for writing-I want to concentrate on the road-sorry couldn't be more help but I have no idea
Work with communication device?
A C on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. I was able to install the wired Harley Davidson system that came with my Ultra Limited. As long as you leave the ear pads in. The ear pads have the speaker pockets in them.
Is the black/grey pinstripe bell pit boss helmet a flat black?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the helmet. It is very nice and good quality. On the silver and black version the black is matt
Is there a clear shield that can be put on for riding in the rain?
Robert W on May 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes...as an added item. Comes with tinted half shield....
can you wear goggles under the visor?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I wear prescription glasses it works for me
In the review video, Spurgeon states that Bell has "updated the fitment with the pinstripe" for more of an intermediate fit. Does this mean that the newer pinstripe pit boss is more narrow than earlier versions of the pit boss? I ask this because I have a long oval shaped head and have a tough time finding half or 3/4 helmets to fit properly. Thx
A shopper on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The helmet has a adjustment dial at the back, that allows it to fit a variety of head sizes. I went up 1 size, and the adjustment worked great.
