The Bell Bullitt Carbon may look like an old design, but you should not let this fool you. It has been manufactured according to the latest safety standards and its overall attire is the only old thing about it. The shell of this lid is made from a low-profile carbon fiber composite that is extremely durable and, at the same time, lightweight.

Underneath it, the Bell Bullitt has a multi-density EPS liner, and both it and the shell come in three sizes for the ideal fit. The lid is available in sizes XS through XXL, and its exterior dimensions and weight vary accordingly, preventing riders using a small helmet from carrying unnecessary weight.

This helmet comes with chin vents and extractors whose ports are covered with metal mesh, ensuring decent ventilation and moisture extraction. The comfort liner is removable and washable, made from anti-bacterial micro suede and with contoured cheek pads.

The chin strap is padded and comes with double D-ring closure and Bell's Magnefusion magnetic strap securing system. Not sure which is the standard face shield, the bulbous one or the traditional one. If you're a retro enthusiast, then the bubble looks like a no-brainer choice.

We're not exactly huge fans of that design, so we were glad to learn that this RSD lid can be equipped with casual visors as well. The Roland Sands Design Bell Bullitt Carbon can be ordered from Bell dealers at the price of $600. No word on whether it will cross the ponds over to Europe or not.
