Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories welcome to our review of the Bell Custom 500. Now if this design looks familiar to your thats because the original Bell 500 helmet which was designed by founder Roy Richter in 1954 it looked really similar and that original was a fiberglass helmet he actually layed up the fiberglass by hand, add the EPS foam liner and the first bell helmet was born. Well this helmet is kind of a tribute back to that original 1950s design with some modern design technology. Its got a very strong fiberglass construction custom EPS liner (which is the foam inside) what that is going to do for you is , it is actually going to distribute impact over a larger area so that inner EPS foam can actually absorb the impact really well. Aside from really good safety features the Bell Custom 500 is a great looking helmet obviously there's a ton of open faced helmets out there to pick from . But the Custom 500 does it really different from anyone else out there just a really really nice design , very quite when you have it on its got the snaps for the optional bubble face shield or a visor ,quilted interior and like i said its a really top notch helmet really really nice graphics in several different colors weather your looking for something flashy or something subtle they are all under 140 bucks solids are even under 100 bucks so great value .

Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories welcome to our review of the all new Bell Custom 500, going into the year 2014 Bell has actually re done the Bell Custom 500 its still that fantastic classic look that goes back to the original design that bell is known for but they've done some things with the sizing and the fitment they've kind of taken inspiration from their RS-1 line which is their full face helmet and giving that more intermediate oval head shape on the inside and this helmet is now going to fit down on your head a lot better then the original Custom 500's did kind of felt like they sat up just a little bit higher on the head of coarse there's lots of different graphics and colors that will become available, the one that i have here its kind of a matte finish metallic which is really unique and again its got that really classic look to it but you can even pull the Bell logo off completely if you want to if you don't want any logos at all. Another thing that they have done, you still have the three snaps up here at the top for accessories shields and things of that nature, and they have also given you additional snaps on the sides so it gives you more options for the different types of accessories that you can install on that on the helmet itself and on the inside you have this nice soft material lining the shell itself and its cris-crossed with different stitching accents that really kind of set it apart with a good look. You do have speaker pockets to install speakers into if you would like to . The interior is not completely removable but obviously you can wash it up with the helmet and then you have a double d ring classic closure for the neck strap as well. I'm going to throw this helmet on so that you can see the difference, this is a size Medium which is the size that i normally wear and you can see now this helmet comes down quite a bit further on the forehead where as before it kind of left that open more. This kind of sits down on the head a little bit better , now this helmet i will say seals up really well around the neck roll and around the cheeks and it really seals out sound you cant hear very well when you've got the helmet on which is kind of a plus its not super loud when your riding so you can check these helmets out on our website at Competition Accessories . com
