Product Details

Bell Custom 500 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 new headform means the Custom 500 now 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.

Shape: Intermediate Oval

Weight: 2.41 lbs.

It just did't fit
I really wanted this helmet to fit great, it just didn't. It sat too low on my brow and i couldn't put my sunglasses on. The style is great and the fit and finish looked good. I must have an odd shaped head.

But thankfully Revzilla has a great return program and was fully refunded.

Good open face helmet
This is a solid open face helmet. Lightweight, good comfort, great fit, good price, and I feel protected while enjoying the benefit of an open face.

Recently, I tried the Bell Custom 500 with the bubble shield. Great under 65mph but faster on an open "naked" bike and the helmet lifts uncomfortably. I ride a Triumph Bonneville with a flyscreen and it was not a fun ride at 80mph. Ditch the bubble shield and go with goggles if high(er) speed is your thing.

I'll use the helmet for slower, shorter rides in hotter weather. Note that there is a LOT of wind noise with this helmet. Nice open ear pockets means a lot of noise. Wear ear plugs. Seriously.

I'd buy it again but only as a second helmet, not as my primary.

For that classic look...
Wanted an open face with some throw-back look and this certainly fits the bill. XL covers my big head but you don't get that "bulbous" look. Considering a visor or full face shield now. First time using RevZilla but not the last. The videos are extremely helpful, selection deep and wide, and pricing reasonable.

Great traditional look! Fits true to size. No martian space man look Looks right on my 60s bike. Downside is that it's way loud at highway speed. Didnt realize how much quieter my Arai full face is.

Wrong figment?
I was super excited to purchase this helmet, I love the look, the quality of the material and absolutely loved the price! However, after trying it on my first ride, 50 minutes to work back, I was to the point of throwing this helmet off my head. My temples were in excruciating pain even though I purchased the correct size helmet according to their sizing chart. I’m a medium and at first the helmet felt a little snug but after a few minutes snug became tight and later became painful! Not sure if the manufacturer made a mistake with the labeling of helmet size or what, but something is way off. Unfortunate because I love the helmet.

Good 3/4 spaceballs helmet
It’s a spaceballs helmet and I look like Major A-hole wearing it but I still like it. It’s confortable and fits eyeglass frames well enough. My club master style glasses sit a little crooked in the helmet but it’s not a bother. The helmet is lightweight. The solid colors look great although I like some of the designs better, the white with stripes is very attractive for example. I wish the solid color helmets had chrome trim instead of black but I’m not paying 3x more for the carbon version just to get the chrome trim. This feels like a quality helmet from Bell and it will serve me well.

Full face is too hot for me in the summer and reduces vision to the sides. I've always liked the simplicity and retro look of an open face helmet. The lack of moving parts means less things to break.

Brian S on May 4, 2017
Classic retro look. Originally struck out on the full face version, smaller size. Decided to go open face and one size up. But overall, like the timelessness of the Bell Custom 500.

Mike P on Apr 1, 2017
Good style and value. I used the snap shield to protect my eyes but after two years of only occasional riding the snaps have really loosened up and are no longer effective. I can't figure out how to tighten them without tearing up the liner either.

Diego M on Feb 17, 2017
Just about all of my riding friends said I should get a closed face helmet or a modular for my ride, but I want to keep the vintage look alive. Cruiser bikes all the way for me. I've got the style down pat and will probably buy a half-helmet later for the warmer weather days.
Andrew S on Feb 12, 2017
Bought this helmet mostly for passenger riders. Primary is Bell Bullet. I have a Triumph Street Twin and if you have a retro bike this helmet is a "no-brainer purchase". Can't beat the price.
Jonathan L on Jan 22, 2017

Phil C on Sep 22, 2016

My head size is a 22 in inches that's a small do I go to the next size bigger which would be a medium ?
A shopper on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am a female with what I believe is a fairly oval shaped head that measures 22 inches. I first bought the small and it was tight. Then bought the medium, and it is perfect. It pulls down lower on and around my head, accepts sunglasses easier, and is more comfortable out of the box.
Is this helmet ECE certified?
Michael J on Jul 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes
can comunication devices be installed in these helmets?if so which ones would work?
Darrell U on May 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Super simple. I clamped a Sena 20S mount to it and used the boom mike. The black covering over the boom is wearing off from rubbing against the chin strap. That could be my installation location and fat face. Install into the helmet was less than half hour.
can this be used with a visor and a shield together?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No it can not. It is set up for one or the other but not in conjunction.
How come they dont come with a goggle strap retainer on the back of the helmet?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2018
Is this helmet CEC certified?
Michael J on Jul 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes
Does the bell custom fit anything like the bell rouge? We can't find bell custom 500's locally to try on but the bell rouge fit me perfect, only thing is we want 3/4 not 1/2 helmets
A C on Aug 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: So I can't say about the bell rouge but I have both the bell 500 and a bell vortex and both are large, the vortex is a full face, it's a little snug on the cheeks but besides that they feel about the same on the brain, hopefully that helps
I measure 59.8 CM. I measured and purchased a Shoei full face and it is difficult for me to put my glasses on inside the helmet and squishes my cheeks a bit too much as well. What size would you recommend: LG or XL? I need shiney black color. Thank you.
Dana H on Feb 13, 2017
How much does the liner adjust after break in? I'm measuring a 56CM, but trying on the small made my ears get pinched. I'm wondering how much give the liner had after some use.
A shopper on Oct 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It gives a little after a few weeks. My medium felt quite tight front-to-back when I first bought it, but is now comfortable.
The inside is red?
Claudio R on Jun 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Black with red stitching.
