A new level of rider protection
The Moto-9 Flex is the most advanced helmet we’ve ever made, designed to manage linear and rotational energy to the head in certain low, mid, and high-speed impacts. The Moto-9 Flex is quickly setting a new level for rider protection in motocross and off-road racing.
The Core Technologies
- Progressive layering: A first-of-its kind, three-layer impact liner designed to manage energy from three potential impact scenarios: low, mid and high-speed.
- Adaptive fit: Segmented construction, automatically conforming to a rider’s head for a better fit and more predictable energy management.
- Rotational energy management: A “slip zone” within the impact liner allows for subtle movement between the inner layers and works to reduce rotational energy transfer from angular impacts.
- Ventilation: With the new segmented and flexible liner in the Moto-9 Flex, we were able to add to the proven Velocity Flow Ventilation system to make an even cooler helmet.
How It All Works
3 layers, each with their own job
EPO (Expanded Polyolefin)
Low-speed impacts 3 Meters/Second
EPP (Expanded Polypropylene)
Mid-speed impacts 5 Meters/Second
EPS (Expanded Polystyrene)
High-speed impacts 7.75 Meters/Second
Preparing riders for the real world
As the impact becomes greater, higher density layers are engaged to manage energy.
Rotational energy management
The “slip zone” helps to reduce the transfer of rotational energy to the rider’s head.
