Bell Custom 500 Helmet Review

Had quite a few people ask me for my opinion on the new Bell Custom 500 helmets. So here goes, I got a silver flake Large size. I really didn't need another helmet but wanted a nice looking DOT open face. I first saw these online when it was posted by Stretch on the Nostalgia on Wheels blog some time ago. Was at the a local bike shop with a friend and they had one on display. Couldn't resist since I could try on for size, ordered a large right away. Here is a size comparison to an old Bell Super Magnum that I picked up at a swap meet last year. The Bell Custom 500 fits pretty good. I usually wear a Medium that fits really tight or a Large. In this case the Bell in Large fit well. bell_custom500_throttle_02.jpg bell_custom500_throttle_03.jpg bell_custom500_throttle_04.jpg (more…)

Thanks for your time to review, the photos were an added benefit.
I will now plan to purchase this helmet.
I have the new Bell Star and feel it is the best helmet in it’s class and perhaps one of the best over all out there.
I think this 500 will suite my needs fine.

I just bought a size large bell custom 500. My hat size is 7 1/4 and this helmet fits great. It’s very low profile and is exactly what I was looking for.
