No excuses, no extra weight, and no BS. Simply put, the Moto-9 Carbon is the most advanced and progressive MX helmet ever built. From the Ultra-light full Carbon construction to exceptional features like the Velocity Flow Ventilation system and Flying Bridge Visor with QuickFlip adjustment, every inch of the Moto-9 Carbon was designed and developed to provide you with all the performance you demand from your equipment. Safety is just as important as performance, which is why the Moto-9 Carbon comes equipped with the exclusive Magnefusion Emergency Removal System (MERS) cheekpads and was designed to accommodate the Eject Helmet Removal System. These two features allow First Responders to gently remove the helmet from a rider's head, reducing the potential for secondary neck or spine injuries. To protect and carry your helmet, the Moto-9 comes equipped with a deluxe padded helmet bag and the confidence of a five year warranty.
Full carbon fiber shell.
Fully ventilated EPS-lined chinbar.
Integrated vented roost guard.
Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and Magnefusion magnetic strap keeper.
QuickFlip visor screws for easy adjustment even with gloves on.
X-Static Extended Wear Interior is made from a long-lasting silver-woven fiber which helps wick away odor and moisture from the head for maximum comfort.
The Flying Bridge Visor was developed for Bell's award-winning Moto-8 motorcycle helmet and adapted for the Drop DH / BMX helmet. The easy-to-adjust system uses two side-mounted adjusting screws in conjunction with a proprietary cam mechanism that hold the visor firmly and securely without the need of a hard-to-reach center screw. Visor adjustments are easy, even in gloved hands.
Magnefusion Emergency Release System (MERS). Bell's magnetic cheekpad system allows for easy helmet removal in emergency situations. Used in conjunction with the Eject Helmet Removal System 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.
Bell's exclusive Velocity Flow Ventilation system with FlowAdjust: For maximum ventilation and temperature control. Using advanced flow dynamics modeling, wind tunnel testing and rider trials, Bell engineers created a natural airflow engine that literally pulls air through the internal venting system, keeping the rider cool and dry. By opening or closing the FlowAdjust vents, the rider can dial in the desired amount of airflow to match conditions.
A: The Bell Moto 9 would weight approximately 1450 grams, so it would be just a bit heavier than you are looking for. The Airoh Helmet is one of the lightest helmets available. Most motocross helmets will run between 1300-1500 grams. I would recommend taking a look at the Shoei and Troy Lee Designs Helmets as they have great styling and are both very light, very comfortable helmets.
