Bell Custom 500 Helmet

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Bell went back to the lab to make improvements to the legendary Custom 500. A new headform means the Custom 500 now fits better and looks smaller on your head than ever. The thin-profile shell allows the helmet to sit lower on the head, and with 5 shell and EPS sizes, it’s now even easier to find the look you want with the perfect fit.

Custom 500

I've been riding with a half helmet and was tired of the wind trying to pull my head off. I bought this helmet in hopes I could keep my head and also cut down on some of the noise. This helmet has done both. The fit was a bit tight but was able to press in on the tight areas and it fits great now. Vision is great. I would recommend to those looking for a helmet other than a full face.

I Like It

The fit is nice. Feels more secure than a half helmet. Slightly hot in the summer heat.

Bell 500 Custom Helmet Review

by - verified purchaser
Ordered large helmet by helmet charge. It was too tight and rode low on eyebrows pushing down on your eyes. Returned for x-large and it fit better not too tight but it also rode low on eyebrows. Put a little foam padding in top of helmet and lifted it up of my eye brows. Works fine now. So helmet needs some work. My opinion.
