Using comfortable straps, you can fasten the helmet in any convenient way. Moreover, the helmet has a neck curtain for cold-weather riding.

Outer shell and design

Bell Pit Boss

You can choose from two available colors: gray or black. A belt system is used for easy fastening. The Bell Pit Boss is an open-face helmet that boasts an ultra-light and, at the same time, strong TriMatrix construction. The outer layer is made of ultra-strong kevlar and lightweight carbon. Thanks to this design, this helmet can withstand extreme pressures. At the same time, your neck muscles will not get tired from long wearing, and you will barely feel the weight of the helmet while riding.


A mixture of kevlar, carbon, and microfiber is used to create a shock-resistant construction that meets the DOT standards. The Bell Pit Boss is padded with a soft microfiber inside to reduce the risk of injury while riding the motorcycle. BELL takes responsibility for testing the helmet. In fact, some of the supplied helmets are selectively tested by special companies authorized in the United States and Canada. The helmet under review boasts a high standard of protection, weighs just 3 pounds and perfectly protects your head and neck from possible injuries at high, medium, and low speeds. The shield offers 100% UVA and UVB protection.
