I really like my Pit Boss helmet, it fits comfortable and just right. The sunshade is a great addition as well as the adjustable dial on the back of the helmet. Definitely worth the money!

Bell Pit Boss Helmet Review

Just received my Bell Pit Boss and I have to say I'm impressed. I have a small head and this helmet fits nice and snug. The padding is ample and the strap fits my chin great. The removable neck liner is comfortable and easy to remove. I really like the speed dial system which adds a whole new level of adjustment and allows you to snug it right up. Add in the drop down visor and this helmet is a definite winner in my book. It is a bit wider than my last half helmet but the fit is far superior. I could not be more pleased with this purchase.

I really like this helmet. I've been wearing a full face or modular for years and the heat of the south has made me miserable. I've tried a few and this helmet is quite comfortable and fits true to size, I also like the flip down sun shade that comes all the way down to the edge of the nose.

I am very pleased with the fit of my helmet and will pass my good thoughts to my friends on the VMC Forum. I would have liked to receive the clear shield for night time riding but there was a six month back order. I may reorder the shield in the future.

If you want a half shell, this one stands out over cheaper models. Very lightweight with a great fit, which doesn't look a huge mushroom on your head. It also doesn't tug at your head/neck on the open road. I do suggest goggles while wearing this, because the wind will dry your eyes out even with the shade or your own sunglasses being used.

nice helmet but had to rip that speed dial adjustment out because every time you would look up you could feel that thing going into the back of your neck. lucky it is easy to rip out of there. now it is the perfect helmet. The flip down shades are pretty cool also.

Is the white a sparkly white or flat color?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2015
Best Answer:The helmet is not actually white - like some white helmets or a can of glossy white paint. I would call it a "pearl white" - slightly silver - sort of flat. It is really a great and unique color. Hope this helps.

is the peak removable??
baz48harley on Sep 24, 2014
Best Answer:If your refering to the visor on the front then yes it's removable. There is a silver screw on both sides that hold the drop down visor and the front visor together for change out. The front visor has a center pin molded into the visor that inserts into a pinhole on the front center of the helmet. So keep in mind that however small the hole is it will be visible when visor is removed
