Riding Gear – Bell Custom 500 Copperhead
For those who love the freedom of an open face helmet and kitsch retro styling. Bell helmets have released the new Copperhead Custom 500 helmet. Unmistakably retro in its appearance but modern in its protection the Copperhead is DOT and ECE safety certified thanks to its sturdy yet lightweight composite fibreglass shell that tips the scales at a mere 1075 grammes.
The Copperheads quilted microsuede liner offers great comfort and is anti-bacterial to ensure longevity. The helmet secures using a padded D-Ring chin strap with a retainer to hold the excess strap in place. To avoid the bobble head look Bell have developed a special 5 shell EPS inner that gives their Custom 500 range a low profile fit. Five snap buttons on the exterior of the helmet also allow the fitment of a range of different visors including current on-trend bubble shields.
The Custom 500 series has expanded rapidly since their original release to include a full range of paint colours and patterns. The Copperhead is the latest addition to the “Special Edition” series and features a metal flake gold and tangerine scheme over a cream white base. As with all their helmets, the Bell Custom 500 Copperhead is covered by an industry leading 5-year warranty.
