  • Hey fat head! Yeah You!

    Went to bike night at my local Cycle Gear and thought I would take a peak at helmets. I have a cheap Bilt half helmet that is well cheap. I was looking for something a little better and they had a Bell Pit Bosshalf helmet in a 3XL! it fits great with only one issue, the built in drop down shade hits my equally large nose. Looks like a little dremel work might be in order. It fits well looks better, has ear cushion/ cover for cooler weather, has a dial adjuster for the perfect fit and was only $130. I'm reasonably impressed and thought you all should know in case you are looking for a better quality half helmet that fits those of us with much smarter, larger brain cases!

    Jay, that’s the one I have! I like it. I removed the lens because it hit my eye glasses. I wear modified geezer sunglasses over my eye glasses that I added wing screens on the sides.

      Off topic, but I had to comment how much I love the color of your bike. That blue really pops and goes great with the whitewalls.

    I thought you did, I was surprised to see it in a XXXL. fits great, the shield is actually OK resting on my nose and the optics on it were much better after I took off the protective clear plastic. Its not very dark but the semi visor helps a bit. I need to see if they have other shields that are darker or clear for nightime.

      I have the Pit Boss for four years now. Really showing signs of wear, especially the material wrap that goes over the nylon straps by the ears, but it's been a really great helmet otherwise.

        Good to know and I'd bet you can get replacement neck curtains from Bell. I need to see what they have for other sun shield colors as well, the one included is not very dark.

      Thanks Mark! It’s stock and I love it. You ought to see it in the sunlight! It’s pimp!

        I also have a Pit Boss and really like it. No mushroom head, looks good, feels good.

            I ride with a Daytona 1/2 helmet and it fits my big ol dome (7 5/8 hat size) pretty well. It's the least mushroomed half I could find locally and have it actually fit.

            I tried all of the name brand helmets and they were ok, some better than others. But then I tried a Bell, and I really like them. They are a pretty good value for the money. But that's just mho.
