Video Reviews
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
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 . Jump on our website and see all the graphics that are available from us here at Competition Accessories .
Information and Details about the Bell Custom 500 Good Times Helmets
made by Bell
Throwbacks and retro lids are nice, but nothing beats an original. Back in 1954 Bell founder Roy Richter formed his first helmet out of fiberglass and named it the 500. That moment was ground zero for the modern motorsport helmet and it gave rise to an entire industry. Bells Custom 500 pays homage to Richters original design and adds modern protective technology to bring the design up-to-date while still keeping the originals aesthetic. 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. Adding custom paint-inspired graphics, chrome trim work (on some graphics) and a quilted liner, the Custom 500 looks as good as it performs.

  • Custom fiberglass shell
  • Custom-quilted liner
  • Chrome trim (graphic dependent)
  • Integrated snaps for aftermarket shields and visors
  • Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper
  • Five-year warranty
  • CERTIFICATION: DOT

    Great Helmet At An Unbelievable Price - islandhopper3   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit, finish, style, Bell quality and reputation
    Cons: No chinwind curtain

    Bell makes quality helmets, and the Arrow Turbine is no exception. It fits well, has great padding, a functional breath guarddeflector, good ventilation, is light, presents a low profile, the face shield seals well, and the style, color, and design are exactly what I wanted as a replacement for a helmet that had out-lived its manufacturer's recommended lifetime. What made the Bell an even greater purchase was it being on sale at 50 of Competition Accessories' original bargain price. You can pay more for a helmet, but I doubt you'll get a better helmet

    True Bell - TO   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good fit. Great price and it's a Bell.
    Cons: Could use a little more padding in the crown , but think that's for better air flow.

    Pros: great price, good fit
    Cons: none

    I'm a Harley rider, I hate wearing a helmet, so I ride with a non-dot half helmet.....But I also drag race.And to race on the quarter mile track, you must have a full dot helmet.....I went on-line and found this web site. I got a great deal A great looking helmet that fits great and is very light weight and the cost was very affordable.

    This review is for Bell Pit Boss Flame Helmets
    Bell Pit Boss - mstrpwrlftr   MD Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fits great, love the drop visor and adjustability
    Cons: Little hard to zip the neck roll warmer on and off.

    I have two other Bell Helmets, so I am a fan of their products. They fit my head shape. This is the only half helmet that gives you a little sun brim, drop visor, neck warmer that is removable, and adjustable fit That adjustability is what makes this helmet superior. It prevents any sort of lift even when riding at freeway speeds. Also, with the warmer installed, I have ridden in 60 degree weather and been perfectly comfortable. I have also found that the sun shield does not interfere with glasses as others have said. Great product

    bought two - Rick   IN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Bell quality, great fit, could not beat the price

    Bought a lot of stuff from Compacc, happy with everything, had to return a few things, but never a quality issue, the Bell arrow turbine helmet was a great deal for a good fitting helmet with a name like Bell I feel will truly protect me Thanks again

    Amazing fit - Valkyrie rider   PA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit is completely adjustable.
    Cons: [None]

    Purchased the pit boss helmet. The fit is adjustable to your exact size. The neck curtain that attaches by a zipper to the bottom of the helmet is warm and very comfortable. The dark shield that is pulled down from the helmet is very handy and easy to access. The adjustment feature on the back has easy access and makes a custom fit very simple. Excellent helmet for the price.

    Pros: Fit and finish are excellent, great vision span Many shield options
    Cons: The vent closure on the top is a little noisey, fixed it with a small o-ring.

    I enjoyed the red and white helmet I bought, my friends bought the same helmet, A little noisey at high speed, but not any more than the HJC I was using before. Very high quality for the price.

    nice - makinlifehappen   MD Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: looks nice, fits well, d ring.
    Cons: ventilation, fog.

    Ill start with the fact that at the closeout price this is an amazing helmet. Full protection.I get frequent mmigraines and that does not happen with this on my head.The face shield does fog a lot for me but i am a normally warm person. No biggie. I would get another.

    pitboss is BOSS - pcap103   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: fit, doesn't feel like it wants to fly off, quality
    Cons: sunshield just okay

    Best shorty I've tried. Like the adjustable fit. Wear the collar with some extra foam in the ear flaps and there is very little wind noise.

    pit boss helmet - byknrrtl   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: well made, occipital adjustment, pull down shield
    Cons: square double d rings

    I bought this helmet for my wife who is claustrophobic and she felt comfortable in this style of helmet. I believe this DOT approved helmet is well constructed, looks good and fits very well, especially due to the occipital adjustment band. Thus the helmet does not move around, fall back or forward in the wind. I also appreciate the added eye protection of the smoke tinted pull down visor which is extremely easy to use. The only thing I would have liked changed are the double d rings which are square and a little rough which could chafe or pinch against the skin in addition to looking a little cheap, it would have been better had Bell fitted the double d rings with a smooth metal and rounded corners.

    Nwe gear - Tami   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great fit
    Cons: [None]

    Well it's new. The new padding is thick so its a very snug fit. Not a bad thing but just need to get used to it. First helmet with a winter skirt I've had so a slight adjustment. Now to wait for warmer weather to try it how I will wear it the most. Good purchase

    Bell Arrow Turbine Helmet - Flash   SD Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Nice design and very reasonable price
    Cons: The left hand strap with the D rings is too short

    I liked the helmet in every respect except that the strap with the D rings was to short making it difficult to secure. Because of this I returned it and shopped for another.

    Bell Pit Boss Helmet &Comp Ass review - Danny   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: So far not have the chance to try send it back for a defect
    Cons: all the inside was up sided cockeyed lopsided

    The helmet look great but when i try it the all inside was up sided the helmet can stay straight on my head So that can happen right So i call Competition Accessories that when the fun started .The service customer representative on the phone was very RUDE and right a way she said I can help you to fix that over the phone Hello the helmet inside is mounted wrong and is 12 lower on on side that make the helmet look cockeyed or lopsided So anyway that was on the 12262014 . I send back the Helmet on the 12292014 and call back a week later after tracking the return and be sure they received the Helmet and this time again a not very helpful costumer assistant told me the person who's taking care of that just comeback for vacation so she busy with all returns and you have to wait your turn and we 'll decide if the return is justified or not .So we are 1192015 still no helmet no money back no email no nothing So my point is the helmet maybe OK but sure Competition Accessories is far from good Costumer services Now I let My credit card Bank deal with them . To be continued
