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
  • 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

Great for a fun helmet... This helmet has been great. Lots of fun to wear. The field of view is unlimited, you don't even know you have a helmet on. Rides nice and low on the brow and the ear cups do a nice job blocking noise. I don't notice any abnormal wind noise and the exhaust on my bike is quieter than my full face Arai helmet. The paint is outstanding and the copper color trim is sharp looking. Very well designed helmet. My only complaint is the chin strap is of poor quality. Thin and flimsy with cheap feeling padding. The design of the D-Rings is not acceptable for easy use. The outer D-Ring will get flipped over and stuck under the padding. You just think you're loosing your mind when you can't find it and then have to dig it out of the padding. The D-Rings are just cheap and flimsy. Maybe I'm picky coming from an Arai, but they should beef up the chin strap and replace the D-Rings with something more stout. October 13, 2014
Cool and classic Let's start with sizing, might be my head shape but I think these tend to run smaller than stated. The fine folks at Revzilla swapped me out a size just in time for the DGR, after what should have been my fit (according to Bell) was way too small. Noise and protection marks given are based on an open face helmet and though they score low for obvious reasons, overall I'd highly recommend this helmet for city riding and rolling at low speeds on your classic bike or scooter. I rode the 2014 Portland DGR which was an all day affair and the helmet was very comfortable throughout the day. Toward the end of day it felt a bit snug in the forehead area but nothing unbearable. Thanks to the Revzilla team for getting me set up nice job! October 8, 2014
Stylish Open Face Helmet I recently purchased the Bell Custom 500 RSD Check It helmet and immediately put it to good use during the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. If you're looking for a no frills, retro helmet, then this one will fit the bill. Of course, you'll sacrifice some melon protection for the retro look, but you'll make it up in comfort, style, and a wide field of view. According to the size chart, my measurement of 23'' put me in a large, but I found that it was slightly big, so I exchanged it for a medium. October 6, 2014
Priceless This helmet not only looks good but the fit is great. I have been stopped twice by friends who asked me where I got this helmet. I also know this helmet will only increase in value and become a collector 's item. October 4, 2014
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. October 1, 2014
Recommended, but... The helmet looks great and fits well. It still has a bit of that "mushroom head" look but it's a lot better than others (are you reading this, Nolan N20?). The problem is the snazzy diamond-shaped stitching on the inner liner. Wear the helmet for 30+ minutes, remove it, and you've got diamond-shaped stitches pressed into your forehead! Believe me, the waitress will look at you funny while you order your quesadilla appetizer. Something to consider, but the helmet is still a winner. September 30, 2014
Classic Bell Looks Good Nothing wrong with this helmet. Looks good as expected. September 29, 2014
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 September 12, 2014
