What's this?

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.

Features:

  • 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

Note: The Bell Custom 500 runs slightly small. If you are between sizes, order the larger size.

Love RSD Style!
Just received my Bell 500 check it helmet and was cautious about the size (L) since I usually wear an xl (went by the sizing guide)) and it fit great. I almost don't want to wear it and just put it on display lol...However, I do wish the chin pads were removable, unless I haven't figured it out...great looking helmet though

Great looking helmet but....
Clearly, you're going to have wear glasses or goggles with this helmet because the snap on visorsits pretty high above your chin and creates an edie behind it that you'll need to keep from blasting your eyeballs. Now the trick is getting the glasses on with the visor on, because the visor snaps on - preferable to do once the helmet is on unless you have a mirror to align snaps. It's also hard to take the visor off since the snaps are super tight. So it's a conundrum that I still struggle with. To boot, glasses can't have thick arms because the hard foam liner blocks the arms from being inserted into the helmet and behind your ear, so you have to stretch the helmet cheeks open and put the helmet on carefully while your glasses are on your face. Then hope that the helmet doesn't drag your glasses down over your ears and force you to start all over again. Or you can just wear your aviator glasses with skinny metal arms and put them on after the helmet - but please don't wear glass lenses (like Raybans)! Oy. The stupid things we do for fashion! Strap is too long so you HAVE to snap it or it'll flap all over your face and helmet. Other than these practical issues, it's a very cool looking helmet and better made than all the other low cost open face helmets. The best thing for this helmet is to avoid the visor and get some cool looking goggles that strap on over the helmet. And if you wear Rx glasses like me, just deal with it!

Expectations met 100%
Bought this for the open air quality it provides and the great graphics - both of which met my full expectations. Upon first fitting out of the box it felt a bit tight around crown of my head and I thought I would have to return it, but instead I went for a ride and it broke in really fast and is now perfectly comfortable. Even cuts out a bit more wind noise than I expected being open as it is.

Cool
I love the helmet. I have the previous version of the 500. This version sit lower on the head as the video describes. The sizing has change somewhat though so caution to anyone who had the old type 500's. I normally wear a medium and the new 500's are a tighter fit. While the old version was almost loose on me the new version is pretty snug. Not snug enough to send back but if you are on the edge of a size you may want to go up a size. The design is cool, I'm a big fan of this helmet.

Bell Custom 500 RSD
The Bell Custom 500's are works of art. I always get compliments on them whenever I wear one. On my older 500 I wear a large. However, with the new RSD 500 I had to move up to a XL. The large was just TOO small on my head. I am at the limit for a large. Highly recommend these helmets.

Cool look and comfortable
The helmet fits very well, riding quietly and comfortably. Also, looks very cool! I love this helmet, would very much recommend both the helmet, and the Revzilla service. Great Value! Only reason for average rating on airflow, and features is that the design is a basic helmet, so no rating really seems to apply here.

Anthony F on Aug 1, 2016
Bell are one of the best helmets and this particular design has a beautiful retro yet modern design that goes perfectly with my cafe racer
Eyad A on Jul 30, 2016
I wouldn't wear anything but a Bell. This is a great looking helmet; the graphics are awesome and all kinds of face shields will snap onto it.
kevin j on Jul 20, 2016
Prefer open face helmet on hot days and casual rides. Liked the fact that the helmet has a lower profile, as well as the graphics.
Harry S on Jul 17, 2016
I have purchased another Bell helmet from RevZilla, the process is seamless and best of all no sales tax. The helmet itself is RSD and limited production so, I may be the only one in my club with this unique Cafe racer helmet. Plus it will be the perfect compliment to my T-100 Black Cafe and way cooler in the summer.
Tim A on Jun 18, 2016
The style and look is why I picked the Bell Custom 500 RSD Checkered helmet. I think the colors compliment my Harley Street color "Mysterious Red", plus Revzilla did a decent review and others on the internet speak well of the helmet and the girl I date says it looks sexy.
BrotherAndy on Jun 16, 2016
Incredible series... Had three others...Flawless.
Mark N on Apr 27, 2016
I got the brown Ronin jacket and this will look sweet with it
Roman F on Apr 26, 2016
more of an oval shaped helmet than most helmets and is an open faced helmet
R A on Apr 25, 2016
Good fit and finish for the money. Would buy another pattern in the future.
Brett P on Apr 21, 2016
will perfectly match my guzzi style bike...

KLR650SC on Mar 23, 2016
GREAT Design Graphics !
Martin S on Mar 22, 2016
I liked the style and it promised to make my big head look less like a mushroom than the other brands. Now I just look like a small mushroom, but I'm not sure there's any way around that.
Heimdallr3 on Mar 2, 2016
I like the looks (from the picture anyway). Never had a 3/4 helmet. we'll see how it works out
Eric M on Feb 15, 2016
Like the safety look and comfort look. My first Bell helmet. Liking the design pattern.
Vincent S on Jan 23, 2016
Can't dazzle them with speed anymore, so....style is the only way.
Jerry B on Dec 15, 2015
I love the graphic design.I also like the retro look and I've always admired Bell helmets.
R I on Dec 9, 2015
goes nicely with my root beer HD Deuce. Fairly pleased with it, looks great but I think I could have gone down to an XL which is rare for my bucket noggin. Great looking helmet for sure.
Ken B on Nov 30, 2015
Best looking open face.
John M on Oct 17, 2015
very cool retro helmet that fits my head perfectly
Rick L on Oct 16, 2015

David F on Oct 13, 2015
I was looking for a more retro looking helmet. I know bell makes a good product and loved the look of the Custom 500 RSD. The video that you have really sold it for me.
Matthew I on Sep 13, 2015
Graphics and reviews on the helmet. Low profile helmet style is what I've been looking for.
Joseph L on Sep 3, 2015
I bought this to use on a few vintage cafe/bratt bikes I have. It definitely works! The copper colored trim is excellent and the graphics are very cool. I get asked about it all the time. Note - this is the updated version of the 500 and it fits much better then the previous helmets did. Lower on your head and more 'modern' fit. Less bobblehead looking.
Matthew S on Aug 17, 2015
looks good driving my Ural !
Geno W on Jul 13, 2015
Looks awesome! I wear a bell helmet now. Can't wait to get it.
Michael R on Jun 30, 2015

Its incredible light weight, the paint job is really well done. all and all a pretty cool helmet.
Voltaire V on Mar 28, 2015
I need something cool (and Safe) to wear riding my vintage CB750. Bell 500 really brings back memories of how we did it in the old days but with a high quality and likely safer design.
Mark K on Nov 15, 2014
Its just a cool "Old School" Bell 500
Robert B on Nov 9, 2014
Will go great with my Rninet
Gregor S on Oct 29, 2014
Because this bell 500 RSD design is amazing and nice! It reminders the Cafe Racer Style!!!!
Matheus F on Oct 28, 2014
I have a 2013 Bell Custom 500. It's a great helmet and this RSD edition is beautiful. Revzilla does an A+ job with you tube videos and they were a great help with my decision.
Joseph S on Oct 15, 2014
I started wearing Bell helmets in 1962! I love the old school look.
Jack S on Oct 7, 2014
This is a sharp looking throwback helmet - unique design.
David M on Oct 5, 2014
Owned previous year 500 and was very satisfied with it. The old one needed to be replaced and I like the new graphics on this one.
Mitchell O on Oct 3, 2014

Kevin O on Oct 2, 2014

Is his helmet made in China?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought this helmet (Bell RSD Check it) and on the box it says "Designed in California, made in China". So I looked inside the helmet and it says made in China.
Does this helmet meet M2005 or SA2005 or later Snell standard?
A shopper on May 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not sure but it is a great helmet looks nice fits well and does not make your head look like a bobble head. I love the retro look.
For anyone who had ridden with this helmet at higher speeds...Did you experience any lifting off of your head?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I currently have 4 helmets and have to say this is the best open face helmet I have ever had. It does not move at speed and offers good sound insulation and great comfort. I love the cool retro look as well.
Is the Bell logo on the front removable?
David G on Sep 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is, just like the size label it is easily removable without leaving any glue residue
How well does the helmet fit while wearing glasses?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is actually my only issue with this helmet. I love it with a shield or goggles, but it is really uncomfortable for me with sunglasses. And I've tried it with several different pairs, including "bobber" style shades with a strap instead of arms. Great helmet with a bubble shade though!
it's a DOT certify?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes all Bell Helmets are DOT certified.
will this fit the same as my Biltwell Bonanza?
A shopper on May 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I took care to fit it according to the sizing chart. It's very snug but not uncomfortable Must wear googles because eyeglass arms will not work with it. Finish is great and the weight is very good. Just need a few seasons to break it in
What is the Snell Rating of the Bell Custom 500 RSD Check It Helmet?

A shopper on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: this is a basisc helmet, doubt that it is easily adaptable. you should ask the people at Bell.

Joe Rocket has a carbon fiber nut.

A shopper on Feb 24, 2016
