Bell Custom 500 RSD 'Check It' helmet in black Product Information

As most bikers know, Bell pretty much invented the modern motorcycle helmet. In 1954, Roy Richter founded the helmet division of Bell Auto Parts and, in 1957, they introduced the most famous helmet in motorcycling history, the 500TX, a design that is now displayed in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The Custom 500 is about as classic as a helmet can get. It's a look and style that has been much copied, but if it doesn't feature the famous Bell logo on the front, then it's not the real McCoy. What makes the Custom 500 so special, however, is that it comes in no less than five different shell sizes. No other maker of an open-face helmet goes to such lengths to get the helmet looking just right on the wearer's head. Most will have just two shell sizes. What this means is that extra, unnecessary padding lines the helmet to make it fit snugly. So you often end up with a helmet with an inch or two of padding between your head and the helmet's shell. And this can look a little ungainly. But with five differently sized shells, the Custom 500 always looks just the way it should, sitting lower on the head for a perfect appearance.

This particular design definitely takes its style cues from the 1970's mod era, using the Gulf Racing blue colour in a slight pearlescent finish with matching mod font around the jawline reading C500. As always you can customise this helmet by adding different visors and peak (sold separately). Read our review of the Bell Custom 500.

Mark Murfitt: Mr

A great helmet, nice fit and good quality. I've not used it an awful lot, but love it when I do. Very good quality, especially at £150! Nothing negative to say about it.

Peter King: New bike, New lid

Great open face helmet. Slim fit so I don't look like I have a space helmet on. Really good fit, comfortable even with goggles underneath. Service from MotoLegends was great, I had to return for a smaller item, but the return and replacement went smoothly.

DAVID WILLIAMS: Mr

Unfortunately this particular model was not available in my size, so I ordered a matt black version. The quality of Bell helmets is superb. From the moment you open the box and pull out the helmet bag it is just amazing. The lightness of the helmet the quality of the head lining all exceeds expectations. Then there is the fit, on my head perfect. First run is a treat and so quiet in comparison to my Roof Boxer. I am so happy with this helmet and the speed of delivery, it was all good. Now the wife wants one.
