The first helmet I ever had in 1969 was a Bell Shorty. I sold it with my first motorcycle. The buyer got into a head on with a car pulling onto a two lane highway, did a somersault over the car and landed on the back of his head. His head was fine but his leg got a nasty wound from the foot peg. This helmet has a greater depth to the foam than that one so it at first seemed a little top heavy. After a little while I adjusted. I'm actually going to use it for skating and riding my bicycle as I'm 62 and don't bounce too well. I'm thinking of motorizing the bike which would push the speed up to 30 mph and think this is better than my Bell bicycle helmet. The neck warmer attachment will come in handy too.

This Bell helmet ran a little large and had to be returned for a smaller size. Just finished an 1,800 mi ride and the helmet worked great. Used the tinted shield tilted up as a sun screen when sun burned & ear cover during cold mornings. The Helmet liner sides & center strip overlap is limited.
Great Bell Shorty helmet, fast service great price....You guys Rock.
This helmet has the same quality I expected from Bell. My first Bell helmet was 30 years ago. Light weight and good fit. Also comes with zip out collar and ear cover for cooler weather. Good value.
I only recently started riding a motorcycle. I bought mine used, and the previous owner included a full face helmet with the bike. It was fine, but interfered some with my TMJ (lock jaw problem). I thought a half-helm might help. Not only did it help, but my new Bell Shorty is lighter, doesn't interfere with me talking, doesn't interfere with my hearing, and is so much more comfortable. It doesn't catch the wind. The included earflaps and neck curtain keep me plenty warm enough, and if things get too warm, I just open the vents. All that for just $80. How awesome is that?
I love this helmet. Fitment and quality is superb. Wouldn't expect any less from Jafrum. I've made many purchases and have yet to be disappointed.
Took me awhile to get used to it but i like it. the visor really comes in handy & i like the zip out flaps. useing it more then my full helmet.
A GREAT helmet. It fits terrrific and is quite comfortable. I live in Pennsylvania and am not required to wear a helmet but with the Bell Shorty, I really don't mind,
