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.

Open Face Helmet first timer!
If you're switching to open-face, you will be disappointed. But, still I'd recommend the Bell Custom 500. After wearing only AGV full face helmets, the open face has grown on me now.

There is considerably less padding, but you will get used to it. The important parts are padded, like the cheeks and the forehead lining. It is sturdy and feels and looks very reliable. Coming from a renowned company like Bell, I dont have any doubts about its durability.

The new design narrows down the ears, and doesn't look like an egg, which is pretty cool.

Yes, I'd recommend this product, and will buy again.

Tip: Get a bubble shield or visor. It will help on bright sunny days. I've got the Bell Mint Bubbleshield paired.

A simply great, simple helmet.
This is a really basic open face helmet. It does sit down lower than most open face helmets but it's still a DOT helmet so its not super sleek - none of them are. When I put it on I thought "oh boy, this thing is kinda big" but when you put your jacket and googles on and sit on the bike it looks natural and not too big at all. I've read a few people say that it sat too low to wear their glasses but I'm not sure how that's possible. I can fit my sunglasses or goggles on with a bit of clearance to spare. There isn't a ton of room for the arms on sunglasses though. So if they sit tight against your temples you're good to go. If the arms bow out at all, like my Oakley Tightrope sunglasses, they won't fit with this helmet. I found googles to be better anyway since the airflow through sunglasses (without a windshield) is uncomfortable over 50 mph anyway. A quick thought about open face helmets from a guy who has worn full face helmets for the last 20 years; there's something about not looking through the small "window" of a full face helmet that makes riding feel a lot more enjoyable. Like you're no longer watching the world through the windshield of your car. I've read other people say similar things and dismissed it but now its hard for me to go back to the full face helmet.

42 years of riding and I say the Bell 500 is the best.
Bell got it right- from the start. My first helmet was an open face Bell in 1974. I still use a Bell to this day. I use it not because I am into "retro" or as a fashion statement - I use it as its basic and solid. The 500 is the classic - anything else is just foo-foo & fluff. Its uncomplicated, its reliable, it fits and it will keep your skull in one big piece in the "bad thing" happens.

I appreciate that there are snaps for a visor - being a Vintage Rider myself, I still like to wear a short visor and goggles. Moreover, there are snaps for a face shield - for me, this is a good cold weather alternative. I will never put on one of those silly face masks and I will not stick my head in one of those full face buckets...as the reduced field of view is more likely to cause an accident.

Bell Helmets are priced sensibly. I paid $75 for my open face Bell in 1974 and the last Bell I bought was only $85. My new 500 will only be $119. At that price, I don't get freaked out when it gets scratched or banged up from normal use.

Great all around helmet!
The Bell 500 helmet is a great all around helmet! There is a reason this design has been around as long as it has. I own 2 helmets from Bell., could not be happier with the quality and fit from both. I ride a Harley Dyna, the cool thing would be to ride with a lid or half helmet, for me going from back roads to highways and interstates this helmet is better suited for all around use. Very versatile, the snaps allow you to use a visor or full face when needed. I keep the face shield in my saddle bag when needed. Good air flow, keeps noise down, great at higher speeds. Only thing I would like to see, and would pay more for it, would be to have the inner parts removable for washing and such. Would buy again when needed and would recommend.

Perfect Helmet the Second Time Around
I originally purchased the Bell Custom 500 in XXL when it was released in 2014. I have a pretty large-sized head and although the helmet fit, it definitely sat up higher than I wanted because the interior was just slightly too small fit past the part of my head above my eyebrows. After hearing Anthony mention the new 2015 edition is built using 2 shells with one dedicated to the XL and XXL sizes, I decided to give the latest version from Bell and try and WOW what a difference they made. The XXL fits me extremely well and, as Anthony mentions in the video, it is very much low profile and looks great. No more egg head with the Custom 500 which also means not as much wind, or bugs, coming in the side by your ears. Bell correctly identified the issues with the original release and fixed them perfectly. For those seeking a retro looking open-face helmet that fits well and offers a good number of accessory visors this is the helmet for you. I rock my Bell Custom 500 with the longer 510 visor and goggles and switch out for the visor with the flip up shield when rain hits or I'm on longer trips. Way to go Bell and thanks very much to Revzilla!

My personal thoughts on the Bell Custom 500
The Bell custom 500 is a fantastic helmet the fit is slightly smaller though i would typically be a small in helmets and by the measurement system on the Bell website i would also be a small but the small for me was way to tight and so the medium fit perfect. First couple of rides it was a little tight then after a while it molded to my head shape and now fits perfect.

Quality is fantastic, airflow great.

If you brought the one without snaps like i did be careful which goggles you choose as some will not fit as the sides come out a bit further than other open face helmets.

Overall fantastic helmet happy with my purchase would recommend to others.

So good I might talk my wife into one
I was looking for a second helmet after my wife said my half helmet was no longer acceptable (like my head has appreciated in value!) As usual, the Zilla reviews and videos were great and made the redesigned Custom 500 seem like a good second helmet for me. Arai RX-Qs are our touring lids, but for commuting and when it gets really hot, I wanted something lighter, with better access for a water spout. No removable liner, but everything seems nice quality. I didn't go with the carbon fiber option, and this one is very light with the standard construction. Even with the RX-Q being intermediate oval, I can get a hot spot on my forehead if I don't have my balaclava/liner perfectly flat. And I carry extra pounds all over so my cheeks are "fluffy" also. XL in the RX-Q and XL in the Bell. Bell is tight, but uniform all around and no hot spots. I wear a liner all the time to absorb sweat, have Sena speakers in the ear pockets and wear sunglasses. Everything fits and I am very happy with the helmet. Added a visor, longer than the Bell shorty, and it adds some useful sunblock from above. I think my wife would enjoy one for the summer and the price is not bad for all you get in fit and quality.

Can't go wrong
I measure 58cm but went with a large and fits great. Fits better than my Bell pit boss in large and sits lower on my head than my Biltwell bonanza large. I added the clear and dark smoke shield.
