About The Product
The new-from-the-ground-up Moto-9 dirt helmet elevates the category with not only improved fit, ventilation and comfort, but added safety features. Bell's new magnetic cheekpad system, the Magnefusion Emergency Release System (MERS), allows for easy helmet removal in emergency situations. Used in conjunction with the Eject Helmet Removal System which the Moto-9's liner was specifically designed to accommodate, 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.
On a practical basis, MERS allows for easy removal and hand washing of the cheekpads, a useful convenience for keeping the interior clean and grunge-free. A removable, washable comfort liner made from X-Static, a silver-woven antimicrobial and antibacterial material, wicks moisture away from the head and kills off 99.9% of odor causing bacteria.
Moving outward on the helmet, the Moto-9 features a souped-up version of Bell's Velocity Flow Ventilation system, which literally pulls air through the helmet, keeping the rider cooler. Bell's Tri Matrix Composite Shell keeps weight low and strength in the right places, while the Flying Bridge Visor is easily adjusted with two hand-in-glove- adjustable QuickFlip screws that firmly hold the visor in place. The patented Magnefusion strap keeper replaces the often hard-to-locate strap snap with an elegant magnetic solution that easily engages and secures the strap end. Bell standards like an integrated, removable roost guard, padded chin strap with D-ring closure and a five year warranty are all part of the package, as well as a deluxe padded helmet bag. Quite simply the best MX helmet ever.

About The Brand
Bell was born in a small Southern California garage in 1954 and quickly became the first name in helmets. Their helmet lines are all focused on fulfilling specific needs, designed to function with style as an afterthought. That does not mean that Bell makes ugly helmets - far from it. The silhouettes are a thing of beauty, and the list of artists that create their graphics reads like a who's who of the art world. Roland Sands, Jona Cerwinske, Chris Wood, Paul Frank, Taylor Reeve, and Jimbo Phillips just to name a few. The beauty is not just on the surface. Bell uses the best materials in their helmets including fiberglass, carbon fiber, and composite polycarbonate alloys for the outer shells. Bell is famous for their iconic open face design, but they make full face, modular, and off-road helmets as well. Whatever you ride Bell has a helmet built to inspire and protect.
