Bell Custom 500 Open Face Helmet
Available from distributors, including Custom Chrome in Europe, the iconic Bell 500 isn't so much a 'retro' helmet, as an original.
"Throwbacks and retro lids are nice, but nothing beats an original," says Custom Chrome Europe's Axel Scherer. "Back in 1954, Bell founder Roy Richter formed his first helmet out of fiberglass and named it the '500'. Bell's Custom 500 pays homage to Richter's original design while adding modern protective technology to bring the design up-to-date."
Contemporary features include a custom-quilted interior liner, integrated snaps and padded chin Strap with D-ring closure.
Also seen here is the Bell 'Bullitt' Retro full face helmet. It has a triple sized fiberglass shell construction and multi density EPS liner for personalised fit, Velocity Flow ventilation system with 'flowadjust', front chin vents with metal mesh intake and exhaust vents, a genuine leather removable/washable and antibacterial liner, a padded chin strap with D-ring closure, contoured cheek pads, integrated speaker pockets and a 'Bullit' flat dark smoke shield.
Both helmets are available in a selection of colourways and sold to dealers in Europe by Custom Chrome with ECE approval.
