Details

    Built on the proven performance of the race-oriented MX-9 and the success of the original MX-9 Adventure, the latest version of the MX-9 Adventure Helmet integrates MIPS to take the helmet to another level of rider protection and injury avoidance.

    The new MX-9 Adventure MIPS still delivers in all the right places, starting with an excellent amount of airflow that comes through the velocity-flow ventilation system to both cool your head and carry out hot, moist air. A polycarbonate shell keep both the price and weight of the helmet down, but that shell also promotes a proper fit because it comes in three different shell sizes.

    The biggest improvement to the MX-9 is MIPS. The Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a specialized layer inside the helmet that allows a limited amount of slip between your head the helmet’s EPS. This relatively small amount of slip lowers the chances of traumatic brain injury by letting your head better handle impacts that occur at unpredictable angles.

    To go along with the MX-9’s comfort and protection, it also has versatility in spades. The intermediate oval head shape means it will fit most riders, but the integrated face shield and visor also give you options. Remove the face shield and wear goggles if you’re riding nothing but dirt. Remove the visor for more aerodynamics and the helmet is perfect for road riding. Or you can leave both on and retain full usability because the MX-9 Adventure MIPS Helmet is basically a dirt, street, and adventure helmet all rolled into one.

    Specs:
  • 3.5 pound weight
  • MIPS® Brain Protection System in a helmet integrated, low-friction layer designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impact to the head.
  • Lightweight Polycarbonate/ABS Shell Construction
  • Integrated/Removable shield with NutraFog II™ anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protection
  • Velocity Flow Ventilation™ system for maximum cooling
  • Two point adjustable Visor™ with air intake vents
  • Removable/washable anti-bacterial interior
  • Padded chin strap with D-ring closure
  • Industry-leading five-year warranty
  • DOT and ECE approved
  • 3 shell sizes

    MIPS
    MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a specialized helmet safety technology that is now being used in the top tier of off road helmets in order to greatly lessen the chances of traumatic brain injury.

    By integrating an engineered low-friction layer into the liner of the helmet, MIPS enables a relative sliding motion between the head and the helmet so angular and rotational impact forces are absorbed and deflected.

    Since most head impacts occur at oblique and unpredictable angles, helmets with MIPS Technology are able to offer better protection than helmets without.

    Sizing
  • For proper fit and size measure the circumference of your head 1" above your eyebrows and around the largest portion of the back of your head.

Great Helmet - Excellent Value
I decided to buy a premium ADV helmet and went shopping. I was prepared to spend $400 to $500. I tried on one of these and compared to the "premium" lids and there was not $300 difference. It is comfortable, it fits true to size, and the fit/finish is great. The only down side is the beak it does tend to "deform" in strong cross winds. After a year of all season riding I

Bell MX-9 Adv vs Bell moto-9 motocross
I bought this mx-9 because I really like my Bell moto-9 and the large fits me well. Most helmets I tried on, I wear a medium, but the large Bell works well. I like the full face shield for cold morning commutes and the MIPS protection vs just wearing goggles with the moto-9. If I had to choose I would wear my moto- 9 first since there is less wind turbulence on the head. Both Bells are good buy though.

Don't buy more expensive, no need.
I can't say enough good about this helmet. It's a great and comfortable fit and you *feel protected* in it. I bought a dual sport for local road fun, commuting and maybe later some larger trails. So, I cannot speak to how it is in a dirt environment specifically. But it has it all and it's literally 1/3 the price of my old Shoei sport helmet.

Awesome helmet from a trusted brand with top notch shopping!
I usually wear OTG goggles but they were still somewhat uncomfortable. So I decided to purchase the Bell MX9 Adventure and I have to say that this was the best decision I’ve made in my riding experience. I ride woods only and my feild of view is perfect. I will switch to the yellow lens to get more clarity at some point. Definitely would recommend this helmet and the RM shopping experience to anyone.

Great dual sport helmet
The first thing you notice when you put the helmet on is the field of view compared to goggles. Once you have it on you'll notice how good it cuts through the wind putting less stress on your neck and comfortable enough to wear all day

I was wondering if I could use a SENA 20S on this?
Jesus M on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have the Sena 20S installed in mine and it works great! Music sounds great (use the included ear adjustment pads to get the speakers close) and phone calls at speed are no problem!
Is clear shield available ???
A shopper on Oct 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine came with a clear shield, and there are about 8 other shades you can buy separately. It's super easy to change out the shields.
I've tried on a large and it was just snug but there was no medium to try: how much difference in size between a large and medium?
Philip W on Jan 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The fit between a large and a medium is significant. The good news is that the medium and large use the same shell and EPS, the difference in fit is due to the padding. This means that if you purchase a large and after awhile decide you'd like it more snug you could purchase medium cheek pads and top liner and those will fit!
Can the visor be removed so goggles can be used? Also, is the face guard (over the mouth) fully vented or is that just for show?
Gene C on Jun 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The faceshield is removable. It is held on with the same thumb screw that holds on the visor. You can interchange the shield with smoke or mirror if you like as well.

The mouth piece is vented through foam, just like most MX helmets.

One note. I had contacted Bell and asked is this helmet is the same as the motor version. This Is NOT the same shell as the MX-9 motocross helmet. It has a slightly different shape. I've not used the helmet without the faceshield and goggles, so I cannot speak to how comfortable it may be. I don't see a reason it would not work, but the helmet is not designed with that use in mind. I did flip up the visor and put on a pair of goggles and it seems to be fine.

On the helmet itself....I like it. So much so that i actually bought a Moto 9 for motocross. Bell and the MIPS has won me back from Thor and Shoei.
Does this helmet fit over glasses?
Duffy G on Sep 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I dont wear glasses but there appears to be plenty of room unless you wear movie star glasses!!!
The have more room than the Arai XD series that I used to own.
What is MIPS?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Multi-directional Impact Protection System. It's a unique helmet liner system.
How much does this helmet weigh?
Don A on Aug 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 3 pounds 5 ounces
