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 Panel Orange 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

    good buy - corwin   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: fits well, all bell visors etc... fit onto this helmet,
    Cons: none

    This helmet lives up to the Bell name. It fits well and will function as my passenger helmet.

    Bell custom 500 - Njrider   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great helmet
    Cons: None as of now

    My first bell 500 great helmet ordered size medium has a great fit. The side view when riding is much better than with a full face helmet. Only con is that it doesnt have the soft cushion line the fullface that i was use to. But i still switch back and forth to my scorpion fullface here and there. Keep riding...

    Quality Lid - Dyrtee Cracker   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good Fit, Good Finish, and Well made.
    Cons: None so far.

    This is my third Bell Custom 500. They all have held up well and looked good for the time I have owned them. The only issue I have had is the chrome piping around the edge starts pulling away after a time. It is an easy fix with a little dab of adhesive. I would recomend this helmet to anyone.

    Bell Custom 500 - Yeahoo Whoyah   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Retro style, quite when used with face shield, low price
    Cons: None yet

    As another reviewer said Mine does not have the shiny metal trim around it When I opened the box I was disappointed because I thought the trim added to the retro style. I called Compacc to complain, I chose to not return it, not a deal breaker for me. I was told the photo would be updated, but as of this writing it's still there with the chrome trim. It have an XL and it fits well, was a little snug at first but better after each wearing, just right now after a few months. Lack of cooling vents make it surprisingly quiet with bubble face shield on my un-faired bike. I'm glad I bought this helmet.

    Custom 500 - Brian   IA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great fit. Accepts most shields.
    Cons: None

    Good helmet and a great deal. Nice paint job.

    Love it - Jodie   DE Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: fit
    Cons: a little heavy

    I bought this helmet because my grandfather wore this helmet racing go-karts in the 60's. The fit is great, and I really like the retro look

    Nice overall - Sean   KY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great price. Fast shipping.
    Cons: Not exactly like the helmet in the picture. Mine does not have the shiny metal trim around it.

    The helmet is great, especially for the price. It is ideal for someone with a round head shape.

    Love the style - jedsled   TN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Cool style and good fit
    Cons: A bit tall

    The helmet is really cool. People comment on how cool it looks. But it sits a bit tall on the head, giving a bobble head look. The colors are great, the fitment is very comfortable. I like it. It feels safe.

    Good value - Good look - ncskeeter   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: lightweight, good quality finish, relatively quiet
    Cons: a little tight putting on

    Sizing seems to be spot-on. It's a little snug when you first put it on, but once you're ready to go, it's fine. I am happy with the light weight and low profile, and was pleasantly surprised with the relative quietness, even at 70-80 mph. Besides, it's great looking Adequate protection at a good price

    cya - cya   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great helmet design
    Cons: large was way too snug,

    measured for size lg helmet was way too snug,
