Bell Custom 500 Retro 3 Snap Shield
a face shield. for your face.
so it turns out that she was the president's cousin's ex-wife's niece! So you can imagine what happened...
wait. Let me start at the beginning...
As the Earth began to cool, lightning struck the primordial soup which provided a catalyst for increasingly more complex protein chains to form, eventually giving rise to what we know as life.
wait. too far back.
Are you really reading a review for a face shield? If you have the matching helmet - it works. You snap it on to your helmet, and things like wind, rain and flying insects will hit the shield instead of your face. I know right? It's like a REVOLUTION!
One big selling point: the faded pink tint. We ride bikes because it makes us happy, friends. This shield will enable you to ride while LITERALLY viewing the world through a rose-colored lens. KA-POW!!
It's a face shield. Buy it.

Worth the $20
I like the fade, its not too dark for night time use. Its a bit loud on the highway,and if you turn your head wind can pull the shield up on the snaps, not a big deal. Ultimately, it adds some versatility to my 3/4 helmet for a minimal price.

Good value and style
Looks great on my custom Bell 500. It's not a full shield, so wind does get in and can be loud. Good bug protection.

Add on for Bell 500 Helmet
This was a great additional purchase to my Bell Custom 500 Helmet, comes with 3 snaps however I can only seem to get 2 of the 3 snaps on the helmet, although despite that it still stays in place. Very comfortable to wear, wide view of my surroundings.

This shield works well.
This shield fits well on the Bell 500, looks great, and is sturdy.
Depending on your orientation to the wind, it will allow
some air in from the sides during windy conditions.
I found I needed to shift my head to prevent a wind blast into the eyes.
With that said, I do like the light air flow it provides in warm
weather, especially in town at low speed.
On the highway, it works well with no turbulence between
the shield and your face. Overall, it is a nice option to wearing goggles.

Would buy again for sure!
Purchased two of these (smoke and clear) for my Bell Custom 500 RSD. Snapped on tight and they hold snug. I wear glasses so the small amount of tilt is nice for on and off and for warm days to get air flow.

High Style Low Cost
I snagged this visor just for fun, to see whether it fit on my Fulmer V2 and to see whether I liked the look of it. Well, it does, and I do. The visor looks totally awesome and at under $20, it's tough to go wrong. The bronze fade is also a really great tint. It gives a bit of sun protection up top for bright days but is clear down low so you can still see at dusk. Can't go wrong with that!

Shorter than I thought, but decent.
I bought this with a Bell 500 for around town use. I have only actually used it a couple of times. It just doesn't really work for me. It does what it is supposed to (flow air and dirt around your face) but it is shorter than I expected.
