When it says "half helmet" it literally means its half. I expected less padding maybe between an open face helmet padding and a skid plate helmet but it's almost as if they took a 3/4, open face helmet and cut it down to size.
Bulky but nice look and well made. Glad I bought it but wish I knew it would be so big.
Fit is true to size, I think. Small was expected and fits great. Can also remove the neck shield by a zipper for a nice look.
I've had this helmet for a year. The adjustment feature is great. I didn't think it would be work as advertised, but I was wrong. This helmet is comfortable in both warm and cool weather riding due to the removable neck lining. The only issue I have is that the visor comes down too low for me, so I use sun glasses more often than not. I still use this helmet more often than my others.
To sum up my findings about the ZR1 helmets - I tried three sizes, the medium which is my regular size, the large and the extra large,.........the Helmets are of good quality but all of them extremely tight around the cheeks, unbearable to wear!
I ended up putting a piece of wood (spreader) between the cheek pieces of the helmet I kept and left it there for several weeks before it was bearable to wear!
This is my second Bell Pitboss, the first was a medium it fits well, adjuster all the way out, but if I wasn't careful taking it of the adjuster would come apart. So I went for a large, it fits a little further down on my melon, but looks good, no mushroom looking head like some other half helmets. I think it should come with a clear visor, not smoked, and it should be offered at time of purchase. I like the flip down visor and use at all the time. There is a lot of air noise when the cold weather wrap is not used. Other than that, like I said this is my second one, first one is for any ladies who want a ride. Good price, shipping was fast, description and what I got was perfect.
It's a decent helmet for the price but
Honestly it sits so high on my head it looks ridiculous. Even when I pull it all the way down on my head the helmet does not have a form fitting appearance at all. It's ugly and bulbous. But it fits true to size and gets the job done as a helmet. But I'd go for a sleeker look next time around.
To be one of my first helmets, I could not be luckier. And for future purchases I will know where to go. Thank you Motorcycle -superstore.Com. I am glad I took the time to explore my options and different choices.
