The ultra-light TriMatrix construction keeps weight to a minimum while still passing tough DOT standards. The Bell Pit Boss also features Bells innovative Speed Dial adjustable fit system which provides unmatched levels of comfort while drastically reducing the tendency for open face helmets to lift off of the head. And with additional features like a removable neck curtain and drop down sunshield, the Pit Boss truly reigns supreme on the wide open road.

Great quality and great looking helmet. Does not look like a mushroom cap on your head. Had to return the large for an XL even though my head measured within the sizes listed for L. My head is a bit more oval shaped.
Tinted retractable shield is great, but the visor (bill) is too short to be effective in blocking the sun with a simple head tilt. I wish it was longer.
Had to remove the adjustable piece... totally uncomfortable - I could not get it high enough in the helmet to get it up where it belongs on my head. IMHO its not positioned properly in the helmet.
Chin strap is rough/scratchy... it's a single piece of nylon
No forehead vents is a real mystery... why not? I hope I don't regret that.
Finally, for me a clear sheild would have been preferable to the smoke. I wear sunglasses... would like to have the clear shield for night riding. Right now they are backordered? A lot of others must feel the same way.
All in all a really nice helmet though.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Helmet liner is wrinkled at the forehead - visible to others while wearing. Since it's not removable, it should be glued fast to hold it's shape. The interior lining is very poor quality.
Helmet is very large and heavy. Feels heavier than my old HJC 3/4 helmet.
Does sit down on your head, but still looks HUGE.
The visor is for looks only - absolutely no functionality.
I didn't wear the helmet on the road. Knew I was returning it when I removed it from the box.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Glove looks great, but are overpriced for what you get. No thinsulate, really? The liner is a joke and balls up inside the glove... Very difficult to actually put on. Can't imagine if my hand were hot or whet. Outside of the glove the liner fits my hand. The glove itself is very tight around the fingers... they're long enough, but way too tight. Maybe OK for a bike, but you're hands will freeze on a sled. OEM gloves DO NOT fit like this.
If this glove were ALL leather and simply insulated with 150 gms of thinsulate, only then would it be worth the asking price. I returned them without even wearing.
Revzilla is a top notch retailer, but I would NOT recommend these gloves to any snowmobiler.
No, I do not recommend this product.

This boot is actually more comfortable than the Klim Adrenaline. Very true to size. Initially it was very stiff but loosened up a bit. Only got to use for a few days in Northern Ontario, but can definitely say it is plenty warm enough (temps ranged 0* to 34*). DO NOT wear cotton socks. I did and my feet felt damp all day. Other days I wore thin Moreno wool and my feet (and boots) stayed comfy all day. Great support - remind me of the kids snowboard boots. That's why they are so great for active/passive riding and not so great for walking.
Yes, I recommend this product.
