Bell Custom 500 Cobra Helmet

If you are channeling your inner superhero, chances are the Bell 500 Cobra will be your choice from among the Bell Custom 500 Helmets. Stylish red and white stripes overlaid with a blue and white lightening type pattern and stars is definitely something Captain America would pick. Roy Richter's design is the perfect foil for this custom paint-inspired graphic. And while the helmet does not come with superpowers it does come with modern protective technology that was not available to Richter in 1954. By combining a custom fiberglass layup with a specially designed EPS foam layer, Bell engineers were able to craft a helmet that is at once light weight, narrow in profile, and DOT-compliant providing performance that works just as well as this helmet looks.

  • Chrome trim (graphic dependent)
  • Integrated snaps for aftermarket shields and visors

It's a face shield, everyone knows what it does. It fits the helmet you bought it for, and obviously it works as well as a piece of plastic covering your face should. My only complaint is it tends to fog up fairly easily since it's so close to your face, otherwise great product, A+++, would buy again.

Fits great and looks great! I tried a couple other helmet brands but ended up coming back to Bells Custom 500. This is my 2nd Bell Custom 500 and the usuals are expected from an open face like wind noise if you are riding. Other than that helmet is Stylish and Comfortable! Only suggestion is some Bluetooth earphones whenever you want some music on the ride and this helmet is golden!

This face shield is worth the price. It delivers on its promise of providing protection from wind and rain. Yesterday, I was caught in a severe thunderstorm more than 30 miles from my house. If it hadn't been for this face shield it could have been a painful experience. I especially remember the rain on my arms. It felt like Bb's pelting me. I can not imagine how that would feel on my face. I am glad I purchased this product.

I wanted a DOT helmet and was initially looking at Biltwell (novelty) because i just couldn't settle on a "egg head" DOT. I was concerned that the Bell would be a little big but it appeared small in the Revzilla review. So i took a chance and do not regret it at all. The Custom 500 is great! Light weight, Comfortable, Great finish and as retro as you want. Compared it to my buddies Biltwell and they're very similar in size. The Biltwell actually stands a little taller. As for the price, you really can't beat that either. Waiting on Bell to come out with some new models and i'm guaranteed to buy another.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very light, comfortable throwback. Fit is in line with other Bell products. It's a bit of a mushroom head look but all the 3/4 helmets with DOT protection are.

The Bell 500 is not a low profile helmet. Nothing worse than a really cool bike being operated by a bobble head looking dude.
No, I do not recommend this product.
