Bell Custom 500 Retro 3 Snap Shield
Waste of time and money.
I bought two of these, one clear and one smoke. I was really pleased at first but after they "broke in" the visors just flip in and out every time I move my head. It’s really frustrating riding in the DC Baltimore area because I'm always looking over my shoulder changing lanes and this annoying shield flips up letting all sorts of air in. I just use my Bell helmet with sunglasses now and once it gets cold enough I'm just going to order a full face helmet and save the head ache. Also my clear one has only been used about 4 times and the snap broke on it. Just a cheap product...

Clear and well rounded face shield
Snaps firmly into place. it is clear and the curvature is aesthetically pleasing as well as great for shedding airflow.

Great face shield.
Fits my 3/4 helmet perfectly. They fit even when I am wearing my glasses. Easy snap-on and off. I use it whenever I travel on the freeway especially at higher speeds. Makes the ride more comfortable.

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.
