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. No more bobbleheads. The thin-profile shell allows the Bell Custom 500 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.

Features:

  • 5 shell and EPS liner sizes ensure a low profile look
  • Integrated 5 snap pattern for aftermarket shields and visors
  • Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper
  • Multi Density EPS liner
  • Stainless Steel D-ring closure
  • Leather D-ring pull tab
  • Five year warranty

Better than Bonanza Biltwell I have a new Bonanza by Biltwell and the Custom 500 by Bell. Having 5 shell sizes is the first huge advantage the Custom 500 has over the Biltwell. The fit is perfect and the leather materials seem keep your head cooler. At highway speeds there is alot of noise much like the Bonanza, but at least the Bell wants to stay on my head. The bonanza starts to lift at 50mph like a parachute. The sides of the Bell curve more inward towards your neck which might be the secret to the better aerodynamic properties of the Bell Custom. I am probably going to buy another Custom 500 for my wife. I used a shortie tinted shield with it instead of the weird bubble shields. The shortie is enough and easy to put on and take off.

Great, cool looking helmet, no mushroom head First, Revzilla is awesome with their insanely fast shipping! Their standard shipping rivals (and often beats) my Prime account shipping with Amazon (and it doesn't set me back $99 a year!) So I bought this helmet last week and got it in two days (standard shipping) and it is awesome. I'm wearing it on my Honda Ruckus scooter which I use to commute to work daily and get around town. I've been using a full-face Shoei, but I wanted something cooler for the Georgia summer heat that didn't make me look like a mushroom head and this helmet does just that. The video mentioned that previous versions had a more rounded (mushroom?) look and the fit of this newer model is more contoured and they were right. I didn't have the previous model to compare, but this helmet really hugs my head and looks cool. There are lots of scooter riders in my town and everybody is going to this style of helmet. I like the leather detailing and the release pull-tab (also leather). Helmet feels secure and is DOT rated. The open face makes all the time I sit at stop lights in the blazing sun much more bearable. I just ordered the dark smoke face shield, but my sunglasses work just fine with this helmet too. All of the stickers peel off easily (except of course DOT on back). Looks awesome, no mushroom head! July 20, 2014
Like the flat black, quilted stitching, and pull strap with snap. I purchased this Bell helmet because I ride a Bobber and the wind noise was killing my ears, as I wear a half helmet now. I had resorted to ear plugs but then could not enjoy the exhaust note. This helmet blocks the wind noise but allows me to hear everything else. It is very comfortable and I really like the retro style. I feel much more protected and still enjoy a full range of view with the wind on my face. I will never go back to a half helmet / skull cap. I love it! July 15, 2014
Simple, well executed, retro style 3/4 helmet. I have been looking for a 3/4 helmet for a few years and have tried on just about everything I could get my hands on. I found most helmets to have a very round fit which was uncomfortable on my oval shaped head. I even purchased a 2013 Bell 500 at a blowout sale just to try it and wound up returning it because it sat so high and was so uncomfortable. I took a shot and ordered the new 2014 after watching the videos here and learning that they had changed the fit. I ordered a L and an XL to try both. I tried the L first. A little snug, but I wore it in my apartment for about 45 minutes and noticed no pressure points or pain, just an overall snugness. The XL fit on my head perfectly but I decided that since my HJC CL-16 is a L and I know that these helmets can break in a bit, I went with the L. I've got roughly 800 miles on it so far and it's only gotten more comfortable. I would recommend if you feel between sizes that you go with the smaller size - another plus is that each size helmet (except xs/s I believe? The video review has the info) has it's own shell size. If you can fit into a smaller size helmet the profile will be smaller as well. This helmet does not make me feel like a bobble head or The Great Gazoo. Looks good, fits good, that's about all you can expect from a 3/4 retro lid. No vents, a bit noisy on the highway, but nothing out of the ordinary. Field of vision is huge, obviously. No lift at highway speeds. Picked up a 3 snap flat shield for long rides, works very well. I've ridden with it in some 85 - 90 degree days, high humidity and have never felt too hot or uncomfortable. My only complaint is the matte finish seems to scratch fairly easily. This helmet is exactly what you expect, there will be no surprises. July 14, 2014
Product is way too small. I had bought the previous model in a Medium size that fit just fine. This newer model in the same size gives me a headache. I can't wear it longer than an hour. July 7, 2014
Stays put! I've had this helmet for a month now. The first time I took this bad boy out on the highway I was surprised how it didn't move at all. There was no drag meaning I didn't have to tilt my head forward to keep the wind from blowing my head back. I usually wear a full face for long distances but this is much more comfortable. It's so light I can't even feel it on my head. It looks awesome. I couldn't be happier! Get this helmet! June 27, 2014
Just what they said it was! This is a nice helmet that fits right and is nice and light. There are no vents, so that is like they were back in the day. Because it is shaped to be somewhat aerodynamic, the wind noise is not bad. You can use glasses or shield and look kool while you ride! June 23, 2014
Great Helmet for money !!! Great Helmet for the money. Very nostalgic looking. High Quality. 5 year warranty. What is not to love about this helmet? June 23, 2014

Mark D asked: My head measurement is 23", which is exactly between the Medium and Large. Which size should I go with? Apr 24, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (1)
Mancas V: I would say go for the large. I recently bought the XL and it pushes a bit on the back of my head. However, I did not have the chance to ride a lot wearing the helmet and presumably it will loosen / adjust to the shape of my head to a certain extent. If the large does not work out for you, Revzilla have an excellent service and will surely accommodate an exchange for a medium size. On the topic, I am very pleased with choosing the Bell which turned out to be more than expected. Good luck! Apr 25, 2014
Reply to Mancas Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Thaddeus R: I think it depends on your head shape.
Mine is 22.5" and a long oval, the medium was tight front to back initially but has broken in with a few wearings and is very comfortable now. I'd get the medium and if it didnt work return it for the large.

Robert A: I went to a local shop and tried on a similar helmet before making my purchase. I would honestly suggest you do the same. The helmet I tried on was not a Bell and the XL was a perfect fit. The Bell is a little more snug but not uncomfortable at all. Apr 24, 2014

Ken B: Hi Mike try a large and see how it goes if it doesn't work you can always get the the medium and if the large seems just attach too big you might try so pretty sticking in some more more more protection some bigger pads good luck Apr 24, 2014

Ken P: I was in between 2 sizes also, I ordered the smaller one and it seemed a little tight, so I ordered the larger one and tried both at the same time. I ended up keeping the larger one. They took the other one back, no problem. Apr 27, 2014

Kevin L: My head measures 22.5" and I got the medium. It's a bit snug but I'm going to keep it and hope it breaks in a little. As your head is a bit larger I would go Large. Also, my other Bell helmets r size Large and fit nicely. Apr 24, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Miguel C: I recommend a 3-snap bubble shield. There's even a flip-up version. However, if you want to show off your face all of the time get Global Vision's Hero24 photochromatic goggle-glasses. The lens changes tint in sunlight but you continue to see clearly. These have a foam border to keep you from tearing up yet can breath to prevent fogging up. Hero24 works perfectly with the Bell Custom 500. May 9, 2014

I have the 2013 model in Large and fits me perfectly. I just don't want to assume that I should be getting the same size as this one. Appreciate it if anyone who had the chance of owning both already can share his/her experience.

Miguel C: The 2013 Bell Custom 500 is for rounder faces while the 2014 version is for oval faces. While the 2013 fit my round face, the 2014 was too tight and compressed the sides of my head. I tried both in Medium. I also couldn't tell if the 2014 was indeed a low profile helmet. It seemed the same height on my head.

If you decide on the 2014 you might want to go up one in size.

Arlyn B: I measured my head size according to the directions on the revzilla website and ordered a medium. After receiving it I found it was to tight fitting. I ordered the large which is one size up from the suggested size in the chart and it fits perfect. They seem to be running a little tighter fitting on the 2014 model. Apr 30, 2014

John M: My new custom 500 fits really well over the ears eliminating wind noise and I don't believe a Bluetooth headset would be comfortable to me. I really enjoy the fit and function of this helmet,long rides are better,my ears are not ringing afterwards from the wind,just maybe from the boom audio on my 2014 FLHTK :) .

Doug M asked: So, do the 2014 models have a less 'round' fit on the interior than the 2013 models? On the older models the front and back were too tight on the front/back of my head, and the next size up was too loose on the sides/cheeks. Jan 16, 2014

Keith S: He said in the video that the old 2013 was a more round fit so I'm assuming that its a more oval fit. I had the same problem as you with the old Bell. I'm going to order a 2014 and see if it fits better, I can always send it back. I wonder if Bell is coming out with some more gloss colors? I'm not a fan of the matte finish. Feb 1, 2014

John M: The 2014 helmets are long,not round! My 2xl fits perfectly on my 7 ? oblong head! I have tried every brand and size with no luck until now,Bell has outdone themselves with this one. I have not had a helmet fit this well in 35 years when I purchased my first Bell Magnum Mar 14, 2014

What's old is new again. This is the new Custom 500 new for 2014.

They've changed a few things but they're big things. You've seen us do a
few previous versions of this video. The Custom 500's accessories moving
into 2014, the big change is fitment. This helmet is now is a low profile
design which is really different compared to any other DOT open face
helmets on the market.

Now you see to my left, this is the pre-2014 design I have right here. It's
DOT and very similar in its shape. In the center I have the new version.
You can see it's very simple. There's not a lot of external changes other
than they've added the fist snap for a flat shield. So some of the
accessories might be different. But you're still going to get a multitude
of colors: metalics, graphics, custom artists. They still use it as a
canvas because this is the helmet that started it all.

But what you are getting from Bell is now a helmet that sits dramatically
lower on your head. And they've accomplished this by updating the actual
outer shell with a new style of composite fiberglass.

They've also updated the EPS and they're now using five different EPS and
shell shapes for six different sizes of helmet. So extra small and small
are the only ones that are sharing a shell. So what that's allowed it to do
is, it literally sits inches lower on the head. You can see it from the
front. You can see it from the side.

It's going to have the exact same fitment as the latest and greatest shape
that we've seen on the RS1, on the New Star. It's that new shell shape from
Bell. Their new internal fitment shape so it's going to fit lower, more
snug, and much more contoured to the head. Where the original Custom Bell
500 from last year is going to be a little bit more round.

Now keep in mind when you're thinking about fitment too, if you're still
concerned we do share for free. And I'd love to hear your gut reaction.
Click here and subscribe to us at Revzilla TV.

But again the big story is the fit. If we dive back into the helmet though.
If you're new to the Custom Bell 500, remember that it is the canvas. Bell
started in 1954 with Roy Richter. This is the original helmet that
everybody's is riding right now. It's singlehandedly the most popular open
faced helmet we've seen in the last three to four years.

Fiberglass composite shells as I told you. They're really lightweight. The
new version now shaves an ounce off. So 2.5 pounds. Five snaps on this
outside design. Bubble shields, flat shields. You have different visor
configurations and options. Depending on the color of the helmet or the
graphic, the trim's going to change. So on this helmet, it's rubberized. On
this older version, it's chrome but there are chrome versions of the new
Custom 500 for 2014. And you still see the nonremoveable quilted diamond
interior.

Now if you're still in this market and you want to go even further retro,
check out the new Bell Bullitt helmet. It's a big step up in cost. This bad
boy is just over that $100 mark. The new Bell Bullitt is going to be
dramatically more expensive, but that's a piece of art. Where this is
really a blank canvas that Bell's just done a ton of creative stuff with.

Remember it is going to be DOT in its design. You even when I turn them
backwards, this guy feels a little bit more long and narrow where this
guy's a little squattier. And again that rounded shape allows it to sit
lower but still give you the same amount if not upgraded protection with
this EPS outer shell combo.

One last thing to call out is that the new 2XL which is the top of the food
chain from a size standpoint on the 2014. Moving on Custom 500 is now 64
centimeter where previously it was 63 and some folks ran into some issues.
So again, the size range has been refined as well.

Remember we love this helmet: bang for the buck factor, style factor. From
Bell again... You can't ignore the vintage inspiration that goes into the
helmet that started it all. Really when they used to call these crash
helmets back in the motorcycle era, the classic old days in the 1950s and
1960s.
