Some things don’t need a total redesign, they just require a bit of a reintroduction. That is exactly what Bell Helmets is doing with their Bullitt Carbon Chemical Candy Helmet.
Featuring the old-school Genuine Chemical Candy Paint stripes along the top, this brain bucket features all of the classic design elements that made it popular in the first place – with a couple of additions. The most notable change from the original is the use of carbon fiber. Not only does this make it much lighter than other earlier iterations of the helmet, but it adds a bit of character. Of course, character isn’t the only thing you look for in a helmet. For comfort and safety while riding, the Bullitt features contoured cheek pads with integrated speaker pockets by the ears. Planning on doing a whole lot of warm weather riding this summer? Not to worry. The retro helmet has vents on the chin bar and in the back for air flow, as well as washable ant-bacterial suede. Old dog, new tricks.
