Bell Custom 500 Flip-Up Visor Shield
For those that wear glasses
I am a glasses wearer and trying to find something that will block the wind is a real PAIN. I found this Bell Flip Up 500 Visor and thought that I would give it a try. WOW, what a difference it makes. My glasses fit inside the unit, the wind doesn't drive me nuts with pain in the eyes, I can wear my Sunglasses OVER my prescription glasses, its WONDERFUL. I recommend the 500 for any glasses wearer and for anyone that likes to wear sunglasses while driving a Motorcycle. Thank you BELL for such a great product.

Works well and fits well, but the screen is fairly distorted, especially at the top. But, what do you expect for a $20 shield. I'd buy it again.

Great addition to the Bell Custom 500
Overall great fit and functionality as an addition to the Bell Custom 500. Airflow is better than I expected and visibility is also very clear. Felt quite secure and moderate speeds (60 mph). Great functionality of being able to raise the visor during stops.

This shield was a very good purchase
I have very light sensitive eyes and I have to have a shield while riding. My only wish would be that they would make one a little darker than this one. I looked high and low for a snap on full face shield and was elated when I found this one. The shipping was extremely fast, I was shocked by how fast it arrived. I made sure I saved this to my favorites and would highly recommend this shield to anyone who needs added protection to their eyes while riding.

This were excellent questions.
This is an excellent product. But, I wish it was a gradated shaded shield. It's hard to see at night with a completely tinted visor.

I bought this for use on a Bell 500. I hate full face helmets as they are too claustrophobic. I've tried a couple of other brands of this flip up shield but lost them all. In every case, riding at about 50-55 if you turn your head away from perfectly in front of you, the wind will rip the shield off. This one stays put at at least 65. You can tell it could fly off any faster, but the snaps are good enough to keep it in place at normal highway speed. The visor will also stay partially up at slow (around town) speeds if wanted. Last of all, I got TWO of these for the price my local shop wants for ONE of the lower quality pieces.

I should have bought the classic
Almost lost the shield off the helmet 3 miles into the ride. If I turn and tilt my head to much the wind almost rips it off. Actually had the shield come up at one point. I had to spend time on the long road trip stopping at shops to find a different style. A solid $12 shield was MUCH BETTER!!! Wish I could return this one... instead I'll throw it in the trash.
Took 3 days for the marks on my neck to heal from the wind pulling on my helmet.
