Bell Custom 500 Deluxe - Solid Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
Purchased for my better half, fantastic finish and great quality she deserves nothing less. Worn to Classic TT and many folk commented upon the helmet once she had decided on peak or visor, visor or peak!! Great carrying bag she loves it and hasn't lost it yet!
Nice lid, sizing a little smaller than other brand
Really like the hat, it fits well if a little smaller than I was expecting but not too small to warrant exchanging. Just buyer beware that Bell sizing does seem to be smaller than other brands. Can't fault the helmet itself though, feels solid and comfy when on can't wait to use it on The DGR 2019 ride.
Simple but effective and well made
Nice and light to wear, with a secure fit (it seems to suit my head shape - I tried a Caberg Freeride in the same size, but that helmet could roll off the back of my head. No issues with this Bell) yet room for glasses. Great fun riding with my face in the breeze, and especially nice not to have to take the helmet off to get through the gate at work or at petrol stations.
New helmet, same great products and service
Great service, very quick delivery, very pleased with the helmet, have had Bell helmets before so new the quality, this one was as expected !! I have used sportsbikeshop before, will definitely recommend and use again.
The Bell Custom 500 is a really great helmet. At first I thought that I had ordered the wrong size as it felt quite tight on the sides. But after reading the information about the helmet I realised that it fitted just right and a couple of weeks on I know I was right. Great quality finish and comfortable inside. I would definitely buy another when needed.
Average and let me tell you why
I like the design and looks of the helmet. My usual size M fits perfect. Helmet is very comfortable and stays on well even with speeds around 90 mph (not tried faster). Rating it "average" because of the quality of materials. Rubber finishes are made of very soft rubber that gets cut and torn even when putting the helmet on the ground. After three trips the rubber at the bottom of the helmet is battered and I did try to be gentle with it. After few stones, bugs hits can clearly see tiny chips of black paint coming off, revealing white coating underneath. Own few helmets and never had issues like that. Was hoping for a bit more from Bell.
I ordered the XL as that's my usual size, this was actually too big, so returned and exchanged for the Large. This is a perfect snug fit for my oval head shape and sits nicely above the eyebrows, I can put sunglasses on comfortably. The D type fastener is my preferred type so I can tighten to the tension I want. Sportsbikeshop are probably the best online company I've ever used - everything was so easy and straightforward from my order to the return and receiving the correct size, I was emailed with updates throughout the whole process and given 1 hr time slots from DPD for delivery, very pleased.
Super - Stylish - Sportster
Just changed from a sports bike to a Sportster and wanted a new helmet to suit the new riding style. Have heard a lot of good things about Bell and this was an obvious choice for me. Not too keen on the choice of "bubble" visors but looking into some goggles or sun glasses. Comfortable fit, not too heavy to carry around and the case is useful too.
Love this design of the Bell Custom 500. Fits like a glove (I take a large in Shoei lids) and large is perfect. Great deal at the moment with the bag, visor and peak. Quality of finish is top notch. Excellent service from the guys at MK too.
Superb Brand helmet
Lindo capacete, a cor cinza brilhante foi o que comprei. Fica justo na cabeça e é confortável. Único defeito é O botão da cinta que é afiado de mais e rasga a borracha à volta do capacete. Sportsbike super rápido, em 7 dias recebi conforme o combinado
