Bell Bullitt Carbon Candy Blue Helmet (RFX158)
Product InformationThe Carbon Candy Blue Bell Bullitt was a special edition Bullitt that was released about a year ago. The helmet was painted with an almost transparent blue paint. Beneath the paint you could clearly see the carbon weave. It was finished off with some wide gold pinstriping. This colourway was an instant hit and the stocks sold out quickly. Ever since, we have been on to Bell to reissue this version. Clearly someone has been listening to us. Finally, it has been reproduced, in a very limited run, and available from only four retailers in the UK.
The Bell Bullitt is without doubt the most stylish helmet in the world of motorcycling. It was born out of a student's design project. Bell saw the designs, and put the helmet into production. With its astronaut-style, domed shape and large visor, the Bell Bullitt has a real classic look, but in its use of materials and technology the helmet is bang up to date; very much what we would call a modern classic. If there is a weakness to the Bell Bullitt, it is the fit. It does not fit everybody, although changing the cheek pads can improve the chances of making it work. We would also say that the Bell Bullitt would not be our first choice for commuting or long distance touring. Rather, it is a terrific-looking weekend helmet for showing off and posing!
The detailing on the Bullitt helmet is superb, from the meshed air intakes to the luxurious leather inner. We love the full face visor with wide peripheral vision that can moved to the open position really easily. The Bell Bullitt is ECE 22.05 Euro Safety Rated, road legal in the UK and Europe.
