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.

  • Brand new headform for an exceptional fit (featuring 5 shells and EPS liners)
  • Ultra low-profile fiberglass composite shell
  • 5 shell and EPS liner sizes ensures a low-profile look
  • Custom-quilted liner
  • Integrated 5-snap pattern for aftermarket shields and visors
  • Padded chin strap with D0ring closure and strap keeper
  • Industry-leading Five-year warranty

Overall Good Helmet

by - verified purchaser
I think that this is an overall good helmet only thing is it sits too low and the brim is down by my eye I added in some foam padding and it fit really good after that.. I would recommend this helmet to my family and friends as long as they know to purchase the correct size.

Nice Helmet

by - verified purchaser
I really liked this helmet. It fit just fine and I would recommend it to family and friends. Only thing I did not care for is the chin strap. So because of that I would rate this helmet a 4 out of 5.

Great Fit

by - verified purchaser
I purchased this helmet and I love it. I ordered it according to the size chart and read a lot of reviews before doing so. It does come in a little snug but breaks in good after a few wears. This helmet is great quality and very comfortable.

Just What I Wanted

by - verified purchaser
I love this helmet it is just what I expected and more. It is made well and the fit is spot on. It really reminds me of the older days. I love the retro look of this helmet. Great Open Face Helmets are a rarity now days. I highly recommend this helmet. 5 is the highest rating I can give but I want to give it an 8. Thanks Jafrum.

Love The Quilted Lining

by - verified purchaser
I adore this helmet it is so comfortable and a great look. It looks really expensive. Great quality for a great price. When I first purchased it in order for it to fit well because of the shape of my head, I added in foam padding. After adding the foam it fit perfectly. I really love the quilted lining that the helmet has, and I also like the close fit to the head that the helmet has. I have already recommended this helmet to family and friends .

Custom 500

by - verified purchaser
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.

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.
