People like the classics. Architecture, music, cars, they are all pretty cool. The only problem is that vintage style often means giving up some of the modern amenities. In merging the two sides of the equation, Bell has created a timeless helmet with modern advancements in the new Custom 500. For Fall 2014, they will be releasing three new graphics for this fan favorite.
First on the list is the new Bell Custom 500 RSD Check It Helmet. Designed with the signature style of one of the most preeminent builders in the contemporary game, the RSD Check It helmet features a wavy, shaded checkerboard pattern throughout that gives the feeling of fluid motion even while standing still. The subtle pattern and desaturated colors allow this helmet to differentiate itself without being too loud.

Also new to the lineup is the Bell Custom 500 Head Case Cue Ball Helmet. As the name would suggest, this lid draws heavily from its brethren of billiards fame and is ready to break through and knock other vintage helmets off of the table. Clean and uncluttered, the Head Case Cue Ball helmet would be stylish in any era.
