Bell Bullitt Helmets
Birthed from an industrial design thesis at the University of Cincinnati from student Chad Hodge, the Bell Bullitt Helmet draws its inspiration from the original Bell Star helmet, first produced in 1966 and the very first full-face racing helmet. Initially contacting Bell with early sketches, Hodge continued without word from Bell Helmets regarding his design. Eventually, Hodge completed a final, hand-built product to show off. Hodge's final prototype received overwhelmingly enthusiastic responses from the motorcycling community and was contacted by Bell Helmets to determine if he wanted to make his design a reality. The Bell Bullitt is the product of Hodge's desire to craft a motorcycle helmet he'd like to own.
