Back in 1954, Bell founder Roy Richter formed his first helmet out of fiberglass and named it the “500.” Bell calls that moment ground zero for the modern motorsport helmet, giving 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.
