In tribute to their founder, Roy Richter, Bell has released a line of helmets based on Richter's "500" design. Hailed by Bell as "ground zero for the modern motorsport helmet" there is no doubt that this original design formed by Richter himself in 1954 has given rise to an industry. The design is a classic that has been updated with modern protective technology by Bell engineers. 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. The Custom 500 series comes in a variety of styles inspired by custom graphics which suit riders from all points along the style spectrum from understated to flash. The Bell Custom 500 helmets rock with looks that are as good as their performance.
Custom fiberglass shell
Chrome trim (graphic dependent)
Integrated snaps for aftermarket shields and visors
Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper

rymac11:I'm not sure how the Fulmers fit, but I found that these helmets run pretty small compared to most other helmets I've worn. I am normally a medium, however for the Custom 500 I needed a large. Buy it, try it; if its too small or large try the next size up.Oct 8, 2012
midnightmethane:Not sure how the Fulmer helmet fits. What I can say is, the Bell Custom 500 fits true to size from my experience. I'm a small in my Shoei X-Twelve and AGV GP-Tech and the small in the Custom 500 was spot on. Hope this helps man.Oct 22, 2012
A shopper asked:I comfortable wear an HJC IS-MAX and have a more long oval head as opposed to a strictly round shape. My HJC is a large and does not give me any pressure points on my head. On some helmets, even an extra large doesn't fit correctly because they are too wide but still not long enough inside. Thanks.Apr 21, 2012
Estano87:I would say they are meant for normal, average heads. What I mean by this is the range between people who have slightly more round, normal , or slightly more oval heads. So if your head is very oval shapped - the helmet will probably not fit your noggin without putting pressure on your forehead. Don't be discouraged though; you could try to swap out the padding for a design that is built for your shapped head with some success. This doesn't guarantee it will work, but is always worth a try.Apr 21, 2012
Chris K:All Helmets purchased from RevZilla (or any other US dealer) are US DOT certified, they will not include an AUS standards sticker. If you need an Australian certified helmet, you would need to order from an Australian dealer.Apr 27, 2011
Lucky7:postiemamma7, I am from Melbourne, my friends and I have bought ALL of our gear from RevZilla, including helmets. The U.S 'Dot' rating is not approved here so "legally" you shouldn't use one. On the other hand I have never heard of anyone being caught and if it is safety you are worried about, I figure if a product passes American standards then it will pass (or close enough to) Aus. standards. I have bought a Bell Revolver, Modular helmet and it looks sturdy enough to me :-)May 5, 2011
A shopper asked:I really am thinking about purchasing a custom 500. However, I like the chrome trim and styling and stitching of the 2012 models. That said, I like that the new 2014 models Havel passed ECE certification. I think I'd err on the side of safety however part of it seems that Bell did not submit the previous models. That said, were there significant changes in safety features in the 2014?Apr 2, 2014
