Bell MX-9 Adventure - Solid Hi-Vis
Customer Product Reviews
What a great well made, quality helmet for the price, Peak can be removed and Bell supply all the bits/plugs to cover the holes. The interior of the helmet isn't as plush as my Shoei but my Shoei was three times the price. The hi vis colour certainly makes you stand out and be seen.
Great value, well made helmet
Overall very pleased with this helmet. It arrived quickly (as everything always does from Sportsbikeshop) and was very well packaged. Open the box and the helmet is inside a red Bell helmet bag. The helmet can be used with/without the peak and visor, so you can use it as a normal helmet or go full Motocross if you want. Loads of ventilation, doesn't feel heavy, big visor aperture with plenty of peripheral vision. My Shoei is a medium 57-58 and this Bell fits exactly the same size. Glasses are a bit tight, but once in are not uncomfortable. So far the visor hasn't misted up so the coating Bell put on it seems to work. Helmet liner and mouth vent foam are removable for cleaning. Only downside is that there is a lot of wind noise above 40mph, so you may need ear plugs. If you can stretch to the MIPS version of this helmet then get it, otherwise this is still a very good helmet.
Very nice helmet
I bought this helmet to use on my adventure bike as my sports bike helmet didn't suit the bike. The field of view from inside this helmet is really good, much better than any sports bike helmet. It is very light and very comfortable. The chin strap is nice and soft and easy to use even with gloves on. The only reason it doesn't have 5 stars is because there is only one air vent at the mouth piece, it could do with one more around the head somewhere especially for warm days, also I find wind noise is a problem above 40 mph, so earplugs are definitely needed with this helmet.
Good for the price
Pretty good helmet overall. Pros: Flows a lot of air, The padding/liner seems to be of good quality, A lot of helmet for the price Cons:. Almost all the vents are unclosable, The sunscreen feels cheap and it also catches a lot of wind, The helmet is kind of heavy and looks huge on your head. Overall a pretty good helmet. Especially for the price.
Great helmet for a great price
Did a fair bit of research before buying and Bell comes out high in the safety ranks. Helmet fit great based on the advised fitment guide. Finish very good. Visor is a good fit and operates smoothly. Feels quality helmet. No complaints.
Good all round helmet
I bought this helmet mainly for commuting and a little off-road riding. This is because I needed something to be well ventilated for when you get stuck in traffic on the morning commute or for the odd off-road trip. The liner is easy to remove so you can clean it, which is important for me using it as my work helmet. I'm giving it 4 stars, because of the wind noise compare to some other adventure helmets, but this one is only half the price.
