I was a bit hesitant to buy a helmet over the internet without being able to try it on, but I must say I am very satisfied. The helmet is true to size (medium) for me and the "speed dial" adjustment allows for a perfect fit. I was riding into the late afternoon sun and, although I was wearing sunglasses, the one finger flip down visor provided some welcome extra shading and protection. My wife rides as well, and I think she might get one too.

I have an extremely large head and was concerned that this helmet wouldn't fit correctly. It fits perfectly and I especially like the adjustment harness which is operable with the helmet in place. Also the neck curtain fits very close and keeps out the wind. The only criticism I have is that the flip down shield is hard to get over my (small) glasses. Although it will come down I wouldn't recommend trying it while riding.

After wearing this Bell Pit Boss for a month, the face shield failed. The plastic clip that it hinges on broke. Helmet city sent an immediate replacement. The second is slightly more snug, though both are supposedly the same size. I wear this helmet daily and it is the best helmet I've used No buffeting at highway speeds, it has great features, and it looks great. I think most people will be pleased with the Pit Boss.

Best price around
I've always liked Bell helmets and after returning to motorcycling after 30 years away I bought the Pit Bull helmet. I like the adjustment knob and I'm sure once I break in the helmet I'll need to set the adjuster. A call to Bell confirmed that the adjuster assembly can be moved. Only downside is the face shield isn't spring loaded like the Exo helmet. You have to pull it down.

Had a hard time finding a helmet that would fit. Read about the "Pit Boss" and decided to take a chance. Glad I did, fits great and especially like the adjustable feature at the rear of the helmet. keeps the helmet from rising at higher speeds.

Not for me
I have been searching for a helmet, and this one was another one that is not for me. The dial on the back was to much for me, I'm looking for simple and small, I sent it back...it is a good looking helmet though! I am a size XS-S depending on brand. I bought a S pit boss and it fit true to size. I did send it back due to the fact, its just not for me. I'm still searching for that perfect helmet:)

Concept neat but needs refining
The fit and shape of the helmet was great. The big problem is the adjuster wheel mechanism in the back is not high enough. even in it's highest position it rubs hard on the back of my neck and when I look up it pushes the helmet forward and down over my eyes. Because of this I returned the helmet for not being able to look up and digging into the back of my neck was unacceptable. Bell needs to integrate the mechanism in the back part of the shell so it fit more like a safety helmet.

Bell Pit Boss size XL
The helmet was a bit small for me even though it's adjustable. It's getting much better with use. I don't like the mechanism of the "D" rings, they are at an angle and won't accept a quick release fastener. It's very light weight and the little visor actually does provide some shade for the eyes.
