Bell Custom 500 Stripes 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.

Cool retro look helmet
Just bought a custom cafe bike, so I wanted a retro helmet- this Bell really hit the mark. Comfort is fair, but rides will be pretty short so no issue. Styling is great. Classic.

Great retro helmet
I got this helmet as an "around town" helmet to compliment my Arai RX-Q which I use as my primary helmet. The Custom 500 is extremely lightweight and actually pretty comfortable-although for my head the hard padding on my forehead is a bit less uncomfortable than the Arai but comparison of these helmet is apples to oranges as one is about $100 and the other is $400-500. Fit and finish are first rate-I paired it with a mirror bubble shield and really love the visibility. I feel like I have nothing impeding my vision and love the airflow-a great riding experience. It looks super cool in a 70's retro way which is why I bought it and I like it much more than I thought I would. From a size standpoint, I'm an XL in both the Arai RX-Q and Bell. I wouldn't necessarily like to do faceplant with this helmet, but for roughly $125 with the shield-for my purposes this is a fantastic helmet and I'm glad that I got it.

bell custom 500
Dad's helmet is cool again! But now it fits like it should. sizing chart was dead on. doesn't fit like the old ones once did squeezing the front and back of your head till you see spots while simultaneously being loose and wobbly on the sides. truly one of the best fitting and lightest helmets I've ever worn. harsh on ventilating though (except for your face of course) and all in all exceptionally quiet. really like this helmet.

Retro cool, comfortable, great value.
Love the style, got it for a great price, and has a secure fit. I can't give an opinion about the loudness factor, as this is my first helmet.

I ordered this helmet for my daughter. She didn't want a full face or a half helmet, so she decided on this. She likes it very much. She liked the fit and comfort that it provided. I liked it because it was very affordable and it was a Bell. Thank you.

Solid helmet for the price
Picked up one of these for a summer helmet to replace a helmet I dropped and took a good long bounce down a hill. Fit is definitely tight but that seems to keep it in place at speed. Should be good after it breaks in a little. Based on other recommendations I went a size larger than I measured and that worked out well.

No venting so it does get a little warm inside.
