Pioneer Sun Shield Half Helmet is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The pioneer is great Bought this helmet as a backup for the 3/4 helmet I already own and truthfully I like this one better. The adjustable wheel lets me fine tune the fit and it just feels great. I tend to wear this one more now and it looks great on. Price is good and I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable This helmet is more than I expected for comfort and visibility. I had my wife measure my head 3 different times (all the same) to get the correct size and it fits great. As for the visor I wear progressive lens glasses and don't need the shield but have pulled it down just to try and it's a cool feature. Should have spent the extra money for a good quality helmet years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gear I bought this half helmet from my local HD dealer and was custom fit to the right size. The day before I used it, I removed the neck curtain and the snap component came off one side of the ear piece. Negligible, but annoying. This helmet is still usable when I do use the neck curtain, just that one side won't be secure on the ear where it snaps. Great coverage and though I didn't use the visor yet, it's nice to know it can be replaced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My new helmet. I'm new to 1/2 helmets, but living in South Carolina with temps in the upper 80s to 100s; you got to have one. I also ride in vintage events and this helmet looks the part. I really like the adjustably, truly a custom fit. I got a large then cranked down tight. I don't think it's going to come off. In 2006 I was in a massive crash and sustained a violent head impact on the interstate. I was wearing a Shoei RF200, needless to say; I will not ride without a helmet. This makes hot weather riding bearable.

Does the neck curtain also contain speaker pockets over the ears?

Asked by: Valkyrie62
Yes it does. They close with Velcro and each pocket has a removable circular foam pad that could be used to cushion a headset speaker if necessary.

Helmet liner

Is the liner removable & washable?
Asked by: CorkyF
No, it doesn't look like it comes out. But, I love this helmet. The adjuster in the back makes this fit and feel perfect every time I wear it. I don't know why more helmets don't have this feature.

What is the UV rating on the drop down shield?

Asked by: vinnym
Vinny, The Pioneer Half Helmet is made by Bell. Bell calls it the Pit Boss. You may want to check the Bell website to see if they have any info about the inner shield. Sorry, but I have no clue if such things have a UV rating. I have the helmet and love it. I confess I don't use the inner shield much unless it is raining; I just prefer my Wiley-X alone, although the inner shield will fit over my sunglasses. Hope this helps . . .

can the interior dial be removed and the helmet be worn with out it?

Asked by: aharleygirl8194
I am looking inside the helmet and it looks like you'd have to break it to remove it. It is attached to the back and also the sides. There is padding over the dial and I don't feel it. The dial is really a plus because you can make it the perfect fit -- looser for local and tighter for longer high speed rides on the highway. Hope this helps.
