Bell Moto-9 Flex Off-Road Helmet


Bell Helmets has introduced the Moto-9 Flex – its newest motocross helmet offering a radical advancement in managing energy across the wide array of impact scenarios common with off-road motorcycling. At the heart of the Moto-9 Flex is Bell’s exclusive “progressive layering” technology – a system of three unique protective materials, each designed to address specific impact velocities while simultaneously working in harmony to deliver Bell’s most comprehensive level of protection available today.
 
With helmet manufacturers recently touting innovations for specific scenarios, such as low speed or rotational impacts, Bell has created a helmet that effectively addresses various possible scenario, including high, medium or low speed, or rotational impacts. In off-road racing, where a bevy of impact scenarios are possible, it seemed only logical for Bell to develop a helmet that effectively addresses many potential impacts. 
 
Together with the Advanced Concepts Group at BRG Sports, Bell discovered Expanded Polyolefin (EPO), which actually works in tandem with the often used Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) and Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) layering systems. EPO is a soft and flexible low-density polymer that, when placed between the EPP and EPS layers, dampens low-threshold impacts.
 
By combining these three materials at varying densities Bell has created an energy management system that excels in low, mid, and high-speed impacts. Along with the three potential impact speeds, Bell has addressed rotational energy management by engineering a “slip zone” within the Moto-9 Flex impact liner. The “slip zone” allows for subtle movement between the inner layers and works to reduce rotational energy transfer from angular impacts. 
 
Bell also addressed head comfort with the Moto-9 Flex, with its “Adaptive Fit” system containing a segmented construction in the EPO layer, which conforms to a rider’s head for a better fit and more predictable energy management. To further improve comfort, Bell included its top-of-the-line Velocity Flow Ventilation system, which offers maximum helmet ventilation and temperature control.
 
Moto-9 Flex technologies include a lightweight composite carbon shell, a velocity flow ventilation system for maximum cooling, a fully adjustable Flying Bridge Visor with air intake vents, and QuickFlip visor screws for easy adjustment even with gloves on.

The helmet will be available for purchase in Jan. 2015 @ www.thehelmeman.com and shipment should arrive in March 2015.

Certification: Snell M2015, DOT  Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL

  4. Beautiful helmet! Was thinking of getting one for my scrambler, but it is a little out my budget, I will have to save for a little longer! Seen a lot of motorcycle helmet review websites, but you by far offer the best reviews that make a lot of sense.
