The all-new Bell Bullitt helmet was released today at the AIMExpo. Paired with the Custom 500, the Bullitt rounds out their "classic" lineup.

Bell released the all-new Bullitt helmet today at the AIMExpo in Orlando, Florida. The Bullitt is a full-face helmet to pair with their Bell Custom 500 ¾ helmet, and after the recent success of the $149.95 Biltwell Gringo, it is positioned at an increased price point of $399.95.

A modern take on the 40-year-old classic Bell Star, the Bell Bullitt helmet joins the full-face vintage helmet market alongside the Ruby Castel and Biltwell Gringo. It looks almost like a blend of the two, which isn’t a bad thing.
