Bell MX-9 Adventure MIPS: a helmet for every occasion

From mud to urban asphalt, the Bell MX-9 Adventure helmet with the MIPS system is perfect for any occasion because of its versatility. We tested it for several days on the road and can’t help but emphasize its comfort and safety.

The details that make the difference

The scratch-resistant anti-fog visor is flip-up and offers a wide side view. It can also be easily removed to wear a same-brand or universal goggle.
The Bell MX-9 Adventure helmet’s faceplate is adjustable and can also be removed for a more aerodynamic, urban version.
The interior is removable and washable.

MIPS®: the safety device

Multi-density EPS foam and carbon shell construction are an established reality, but recently new MIPS technology has taken helmets to a higher level of safety.
This technology focuses on rotational force over direct impact tests used by government agencies and independent regulators.
By applying a thin layer of movable plastic (weighs between 25 and 45 grams) between the comfort padding and EPS foam, MIPS allows small rotational movements of the head inside the helmet during a crash.

Velocity Flow Ventilation

The ventilation system of this model is called Velocity Flow Ventilation. Using advanced flow dynamics models, wind tunnel testing and trials with riders, Bell engineers have created a natural flow that literally sucks air through the internal ventilation system, keeping the rider cool and dry. By opening or closing the FlowAdjust™ vents, the desired amount of airflow can be adjusted to suit conditions.
