The new-for-2016 Bell Bullitt Carbon Ace Cafe Black Jack Helmet is a collaborative effort between the iconic London cafe – after which the term “cafe racer” was likely coined, and Bell Helmets.
It features a monochromatic Union Jack emblazoned over a low-profile carbon composite shell with a tinted visor. Internally the helmet has a multi-density EPS liner, a removable, washable and anti-bacterial micro suede interior, front chin vents with metal mesh intake and exhaust vents, brushed aluminum shield pivot discs with rubber O-rings, and it’s built to both DOT and ECE safety standards.
