Bell Custom 500 Open Face Helmet
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. Bell’s new Custom 500 pays homage to Richter’s original design and adds modern protective technology to bring the design up-to-date while still keeping the original’s 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 new Custom 500 custom looks as good as it performs.

I am 62 years old and my first helmet years ago was a Bell Toptex 500- I think that was what it was called back then. I was excited when I saw this helmet as I had good memories about the old helmet. I was disappointed that this new helmet felt so bulky to me and I did not like the new style buckle. I will be returning the helmet. The helmet was nice,just not what I thought it would be.
