Custom 500 Carbon Osprey Helmet | Product Spotlight

Go Back to the Future with the Custom 500 Carbon Osprey Helmet…

Today we shine the spotlight on the new Bell Custom 500 Carbon Osprey Helmet. With the old-school look of the original Bell offerings, this helmet catches the eye quickly. But the modern refinements are what make this helmet very special indeed.

While throwbacks and retro lids are nice, nothing beats an original. Back in 1954 Bell founder Roy Richter formed his first helmet out of fiberglass and named it the “500.” Today, these glorious street helmets still roam the open roads. It’s a test of time that proves one indisputable truth: quality endures.

Fly Eagles, Fly…

In essence, Bell’s Custom 500 Carbon Osprey pays homage to Richter’s original design while adding modern protective technology to stand up to today’s street apparel standards. It’s truly the best of both worlds.

Here’s a look at the Custom 500 in its natural habitat… the streets! It’s one thing to see these helmets on the shelf. But they really shine when you slap on the street jackets and hop on the bike:

In addition to being a great 3/4 motorcycle helmet, the Custom 500 Carbon Osprey Helmet is an artistic achievement! It’s a stunning piece of motorcycle protection. Which should come as no surprise, given it’s from Bell Helmets.

The bird graphic on the sides is epic, and the carbon fiber detailing really brings this custom look home. It’ll take any street gear and raise the level several notches. Make no mistake, you will find no cooler looking helmet anywhere.

Look at this thing! Outstanding, right?
