MAGNEFUSION EMERGENCY REMOVAL SYSTEM CHEEKPADS
Bell's magnetic cheekpad system allows for easy helmet removal in emergency situations. Used in conjunction with the Eject Helmet Removal System the two features allow First Responders to gently remove the helmet from a rider's head, reducing the potential for secondary neck or spine injuries.
QUICKFLIP VISOR SCREWS
Bell's Flying Bridge Visor is easily adjusted with two hand-in-glove adjustable QuickFlip screws that firmly hold the visor in place.
VELOCITY FLOW VENTILATION
Bell's Velocity Flow Ventilation System literally pulls air through the helmet, keeping the rider cooler.
Growing up in a Yamaha mx family, I've burned a lot of 2-stroke and unleaded fuel over the years. Owning two 9s now speaks volumes alone and having the resources and time to do all the research and buy any helmet I wanted, I finally selected the Bell Moto-9. Why? Because of the quality and peace of mind. The design and safety features, the weight, airflow, the attention to detail in the chin strap alone all add up to the best non-$10 lid to put on any, definitely more than $10 head. It also matches up well with my Atlas. I'll admit I'm a bit biased, also own a Bell Moto-7, but also a Thor Force; however, the Force sits on a shelf and when I compare it to the Bell, it's night and day. Finally, I'd just add that Bell's sizing charts are very accurate, i.e., snug without hot spots. And snug without the heat means it fits right, right out the box and after several hours, stays that way. You will almost forget it's there. One con is a set of Oakley Crowbars will be a tight fit with the nose guard.
As a longtime rider and motocross journalist, I've worn just about every brand helmet available and I choose to wear the Bell Moto-9.
Light weight, comfort and ventilation are the best features of this helmet, but I also feel the colorways offered are some of the boldest and brightest currently available in this segment.
The level of fit and finish on this lid is just fantastic, and features like the magnetic cheek pads and strap system are actually very clever. One of the other features that stood out was the screws used to fasten the visor, as they actually need no tools to adjust. I normally have to push the visor down on my helmet when packing it my overstuffed gear bag, so being able to quickly raise and lower the visor is really handy.
In conclusion, this is our choice when it comes to protection our heads. If you value your head as much as we value ours, it probably should be yours too.
