Bell Custom 500 Skratch Matte Pin Stripe Helmet

The Bell Custom 500 Skratch Matte Pin Stripe Helmet may be an homage to the first 500 helmet created by Roy Richter in 1954, but there is no way it is related to any corporate stuffed shirt pin stripe. With its chrome trim, black matte finish and red and white custom inspired graphics its vibe is entirely moto. While modern protective technology has been added the retro style keeps the original 500's aesthetic going strong.  By combining a custom fiberglass layup with a specially designed EPS foam layer, Bell engineers were able to craft a helmet that is at once light weight, narrow in profile, and DOT-compliant. This helmet may look like something Richter formed but there is plenty of technology under the hood.

Well made shield! Bought this shield to fit on my Biltwell Gringo helmet. I have a medium helmet and it snapped on with no problems. Fits nicely and also allows slight ventilation by lifting up on the front edge. May 26, 2014
A must for long rides Recently rode from Vegas to San Diego. Made it 100 miles before I used the shield and boy did it make a difference. Very comfortable and did a great job keeping the wind out of my face. May 23, 2014
Looks Great This looks awesome on my helmet. It was very tight getting it snapped on... I was worried I would break it! Some slight air still gets through, but it definitely helps. Does not limit my vision, even when I wear sunglasses under it. May 12, 2014
Great Vision and Style I bought the shield with a brown to clear gradient and am really satisfied with it. Great look and visibility. It blocks out the wind without making you feel that you're wearing a space helmet without fresh air. When the wind really picks up (unless it's coming directly in-front of you or behind) it can sneak around the sides of the shield and dry your eyes out. But other than the occasional side wind annoyance it's a great shield. April 21, 2014
Great helmet Simple helmet, as I was looking for. A bit big compared to the Novelty, but safer. February 24, 2014
Old school and light! First of all, this is my first helmet. I love this thing! I got it in a large and at first it was tight, it was kinda rough and tight on my head but after a week it became so comfortable I can siriously walk around all day in it. I recomend using a bubble shield with a flip up device for maximum comfort if you use glasses like me. Ima definitely buy another bell 500 probably with graphics this time I love it!

Great helmet for what it is. Let's face it, if you're looking at this helmet you know what you're getting into. This is a classic styled helmet to get a specific look. It does that job very well. It also has great peripheral vision. As far as the fit, I'm a Medium in almost everything, this fits me somewhat loose around my crown, and theres space between my ears and the sides of the helmet. This isn't a big deal when you close the strap down, and I don't think a smaller size would have fit. Wind noise is higher than a full face for obvious reasons, and you will get lifting at highway speeds. The helmet is very light, but thats not as big of a factor to me as I've never had heavier helmets bother me. Get the retro 3 snap shield with it. It makes the whole get up even more awesome and when it's black with black it almost gives it that Tron helmet look. January 3, 2014
Good Tends to lift up at high speeds, but otherwise a great looking helmet. Enjoyed the styling and comfort February 10, 2014
