BORN FROM MOTOCROSS | Bike Tuned For Ultimate Performance
Bell might have had an unfair advantage in creating its new top-of-the-heap full
face bike helmet, the Bell Full 9 MTB Helmet. You see, when you have the world’s
best motocross helmet as the prototype (the Bell Moto 9 was Transworld
Motocross’ Product of the Year for 2011), your starting point is already
laps ahead of the competition. But the Full 9 is by no means a dumbed-down MX
helmet – it’s a bike-tuned, ground-up, purpose-built masterpiece. With the help
of the world cup downhill champ Aaron Gwin – a guy who knows his way around not
only a DH sled, but BMX and motocross bikes alike – Bell ran through a myriad of
iterations before arriving at the perfect blend.
Front-and-center for Bell designers was not just meeting minimum certifications,
but incorporating the most advanced, relevant safety enhancements available.
That’s why Bell chose to make the Full 9 complaint with the ASTM Downhill
(F-1952) and BMX (F-2032) standards in addition to the regular CPSC and CE
Bicycle helmet standards. It’s also why Bell ported over the integrated
accommodation of the Eject Helmet Removal System and magnetic cheek pads from
the Moto-9. These two features allow first responders to gently remove the
helmet from the riders head, reducing the potential for secondary injuries. The
helmet removal system is now required in all pro motocross races and an idea
whose time has come – that’s why it’s an option on the Full 9, required or not.
In addition to the safety specs, Bell designers also went after timely features
like Soundtrax – Bell’s built in speaker pockets and audio cable routing to
provide lift line tuneage. The helmet also ships with a pair of slick,
integrated camera mounts – one for GoPro and one for Contour cameras – to
further meet evolving rider needs. The camera mounts click into a specially
designed top vent, eliminating the need for sticky tape or hook-an-loop
material. Co-molded with a rubber pad to reduce vibration and noise when riding
rough terrain, the mount was also built to breakaway, reducing snag points in
the event on an impact.
Add in a full carbon shell for light weight and Bell’s new Overbrow Ventilation
intakes which integrate into the proven Velocity Flow Ventilation system to keep
you cool…and top it off with amazing graphics and legendary Bell fit, and you
have quite simply the world’s best BMX and downhill helmet bar none.
Overbrow Ventilation Intakes
- The Overbrow Ventilation™ intakes work with the moto proven Velocity Flow
Ventilation system on the Full-9 to actively usher cool air over the head via
three ports on the brow of the helmet. A specially designed bridge keeps the
ducting free from obstruction while the Full-9's air-channel matrix works to
maximize full-head ventilation.
Magnefusion Removable Magnetic Cheek Pads – The Magnefusion
Removable Magnetic Cheek Pads swap in and out effortlessly for ease-of-removal
both after a crash, as well as for quick-drying between runs.
Integrated, Removable Camera Mount
- The Full-9's Integrated Camera Mount seamlessly affixes your wearable camera
in the perfect spot without the need for messy double-stick tape or zip-ties.
The removable breakaway mount clicks into the Full-9's top vent, leaving no
trace when not in use and putting the camera in the ideal position to capture
your ride. The mount's co-molded rubber pad reduces vibration and noise when
riding rough terrain. Note: Ships with two camera mounts--one for GoPro and one
Soundtrax Speaker Pockets and Audio Routing - Soundtrax™ is Bell's system of
built-in-speaker pockets and integrated audio cable routing. No goofy
modifications needed--Soundtrax integrated perfectly with the Full-9 to provide
the backbeat to your ride.
