After many years I finally bought a motorcycle and started riding. I have been a car nut for years, so I am very familiar with helmets as I have been wearing one on track now for over three decades. My choice of bike was something retro, a Bonneville, so I wanted a quality helmet that matched the style of bike, and the Bullitt fit that to a "T". I looked at a few others, and even though they were less expensive, my inner voice would always pipe up "How much is your head worth?" I bought the Bell.
At first it was very snug, but that has now relaxed and it is very comfortable. The wide face opening allows for maximum visibility as no part of the helmet is visible in my peripheral vision. This factored in to why I got a second one. My wife tried n a few full face helmets and found them claustrophobic, but the Bell gives her an open feel.
Airflow is great, but may be a bit too much flow in colder mornings. I may experiment this Fall by taping over some of the upper vents and see if that works. It is also nice and light, but not as light as a carbon helmet.
It also gets lots of attention and comments from others who like the style and look of the helmet. I couldn't be happier and am ordering a new tinted face shield for it and plenty of extra pads and liner so I can keep this helmet for a long time.
