The Bullitt may look like a new-old-stock Bell Star, but it’s a lot more than a relic from the 70’s. It sports a clandestine ventilation system with intake and exhaust ports, comes standard with an integrated face shield and has replaceable cheek pads and interior liner. It also comes in three different shell sizes to optimize fit. And maybe most importantly, it carries both DOT and ECE 22.05 safety certifications.
The Bullitt eliminates many objections to wearing a full-face helmet. It’s lightweight and offers a huge field of view, great for heads-up city riding and general all-around safety. It’s also highly adaptable—run it with the included straight clear shield or with one of many straight or bubble-shaped aftermarket shields. Plus, thanks to a slick leather-clad magnet tab, the shield can be cleanly removed and the helmet can be worn with glasses or goggles of your choice.
Besides its modern safety standards it also has some creature comforts that separate it from other retro full-face helmets. Note the circular steel-mesh vents in place of the snaps found. There’s also a hidden switch inside the chinbar that toggles airflow on and off. And then there’s the Bullitt’s superb fit. Modeled after Bell’s uber-comfortable RS-1 ,which features an intermediate-oval head form, the Bullitt comes in three different shell sizes (XS/S, M/L XL/XXL), and has completely removable and washable pads.
