Bell Custom 500 Grand National LE Helmet

With its checkered flags, bold number and racing stripes, the Bell Custom 500 Grand National LE Helmet's custom inspired graphics pay homage to the original "500" helmet formed by Roy Richter back in 1954. Modern protective technology has been brought into play by combining a custom fiberglass layup with a specially designed EPS foam layer. This technology has enabled Bell engineers to craft a helmet that is at once light weight, narrow in profile, and DOT-compliant. Add in the chrome trim work and the quilted liner and this sporty retro lid looks as good as it performs.

Features

  • Custom fiberglass shell
  • Custom-quilted liner
  • Chrome trim 
  • Integrated snaps for aftermarket shields and visors
  • Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper
  • Five-year warranty
  • Certification: DOT
  • Weight: 880g

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.

If you are looking to stand out with an old school look this is the helmet for you! My father-in-law has the original bell helmets like this in his garage. The helmet is light weight, and keeps out the road noise. This is the helmet for you if you don't want to look like everyone else riding on the streets. It looks great with my Harley Super Glide!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bought the dark smoke shield and it looks and works great! It doesn't make getting the helmet on or off hard at all (like I was worried it might). Fit and finish are perfect. Great quality, cheap buy!
Yes, I recommend this product.

It's your average 3-snap face shield, not much to say. It fits the helmet it was designed for (the Custom 500) just fine.
