Bullitt Helmet by Bell - Retro Blue
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.
Manufactured with the finest materials and with the utmost attention to detail, the Bell Bullitt provides an exceptional fit, creating the perfect helmet for riders after a vintage look with modern, full-face protection and modern features such as five air intake ports and one exhaust port. With its sumptuous micro-suede interior fabric with leather trimmed interior, it is as comfy as it gets. Its overall look features an ultra low-profile design to avoid that 'bobble-head' look. With an enormous eye port, the Bullitt also offers and unparalleled field of vision for a full-face, modern lid.
The Bullitt represents a natural progression of Bell's retro-obsession they put into the best-selling 3/4 helmet called the Custom 500. You can choose to add a vintage-style bubble shield or a flat visor to complete the look and function. Pick and choose as you see fit to your needs.
The Bullitt also comes with a standard five-year warranty through Bell Helmets.
