Bell Custom 500 RSD Check It Helmet Videos

Bell Custom 500 Roland Sands Check It 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 refined headform means the Custom 500 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.


  • 5 shell and EPS liner sizes ensure a low profile look
    • Shell 1: XS and SM Helmet
    • Shell 2: MD Helmet
    • Shell 3: LG Helmet
    • Shell 4: XL Helmet
    • Shell 5: 2XL Helmet
  • 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

Bell Custom 500 RSD Check It Helmet 4.4 5 29 29
Great overall helmet I've only used this helmet twice and have already fallen in love with it. Bell and RSD did a great job designing this for both fit and aesthetics. With the goggles it loses a little peripheral vision, but with my clear lens old school "Johnny Cage" style Oakley glasses I don't have the same issue. I have also not had the problem that others talked about with having too much pressure on the cheeks when wearing other than flat temple/ear pieces. My Oakley glasses are anything but flat and I don't have any issue (but I do have a slim head). I only rated the "Protection/Durability" review a 3 as I have no idea how it will hold up in a fall (and hope to never find out). June 29, 2015
Beautiful Graphics / Good quality Overall, the best fitting Bell helmet I've owned as I have found most to be uncomfortable to wear for any length of time. This one however feels just fine and true to size. I have a 7 3/4 hat size and where XXL helmets in most brands. It does sit low on the brow and is tight at the temples as other have stated which can affect your sun glasses. Otherwise it fits like a helmet should. It has beautiful graphics and appears to be well made with quality components. May 18, 2015
Sharp Looking Helmet I bought this helmet for the design. Classic city helmet with great graphics. I get many compliments on it. It fits well, true to size, and is comfortable (not too heavy). I wear a face shield and it is loud and windy. There is a lot of air flow under helmet (by chin and ears). There aren't any features to describe - a basic city helmet with cool graphical design.

Great helmet Incredible light weigh helmet the painting job its right on the spot, love the lining, all and all a great product. The only problem is that I have a little hard time with wearing straps goggles or the regular sunglasses, the helmet pushes it down putting pressure on my big nose. April 20, 2015
truly a comfortable helmet The most comfortable helmet I've ever sat on too my dome. I have a longer face so it still makes my head look like a mushroom but not a bad as some other brands. I love the RSD paint scheme and the interior lining of the helmet make wearing it for Lon times comfortable. I do recommend this kid to anyone interested! April 13, 2015
Awesome 3/4 helmet So out of the box I was impressed with the look of this lid. The craftsmanship is very detailed. The fit was very true to size I'm a small and it fits perfect! The only gripe I have is the foam in the shell makes sunglasses uncomfortable with out modification. I had to take the butt of a screw driver to press and flatten the foam where my sunglasses fit in. After a little work and fitting this helmet is a great fit! As usual Revzilla shipped quick and was a great buy! April 9, 2015
Beautiful Usual Bell quality. Great finish, and quality. Only issue is size is slightly smaller than usual April 7, 2015
Very cool Was looking for a lower profile helmet. Found it here! Great looks, perfect fit (true to size). I got the large and it fits perfectly. I wear glasses. It comes off and on with relative ease with glasses on. All-in-all... Very nice helmet! Highly recommended! April 2, 2015
