Fits like a glove after only 4-5 wears. Look is great, especially with the smoke shield attached. The low profile is why I went for this helmet, as well as the retro appeal. No complaints!

This is a great fitting and looking helmet. If you want a retro look and a great helmet, look no further. I may get another just for fun!

Good fitting helmet. Like the retro look. For $99 it's worth the price. The only complaint is that at high speeds (60+) the helmet will tend to lift. I suggest getting bubble shield to avoid that issue.

This helmet is awesome, I look ridiculous but it is so fun. This reminds me of my dad back in the day. The only drawback is that at speeds over 45, the wind catches the inside of the helmet and it pulls your head back a tad. Overall love the helmet and the look. Old school partner!

I purchased this helmet on Bell's reputation and the closeout cost factor. I highly recommend the face shield to protect against bugs. Fit and finish are fantastic, but in hot weather the lack of any venting on top does cause my head to sweat. Overall I couldn't be happier, and if they had more options in my size, I'd likely buy more than just the one model I have now! I have recommended it to several friends and they are also glad for the purchase.

I bought this helmet for my husband. I did lots of research and the most negative thing about the helmet was the sizing was too small. My hubby does have a large head, but it does fit him. We bought him a large. It does sit a little higher than his other helmets. We are hoping once he wears it more and the padding packs down some it will fit perfect. Very fun and awesome looking helmet!

I bought the gloss black with the smoke shield. Beautiful helmet, with the quilted lining it fits snug but comfortable. Shield works great, little whistle around 60 when I turn my head to the side but nothing annoying. Good value.
Love this helmet!

I was looking for a helmet, and my boyfriend recommended this one for me! He has this one and loves it, so I got the matte black and love it too! It has a lot of top padding, but it tapers down at the bottom for a more modern look. I'd definitely recommend it.

I love this helmet! I love the old school look and it fits very comfortably. I bought the helmet in Black Flake and it looks sharp! I bought the extra small and it fits perfect. It does make me look like Kazoo a little bit, but I like it! Great product and I will continue to buy Bell helmets!

Great value. This helmet need to be broken in.
