2018 MX-9 MIPS Pro Circuit Replica Helmet - Bell
The brand new lineup of 2018 Bell dirt bike helmets are finally here and have a strong legacy to uphold. Bell has been making high quality helmets for over sixty years now, and shows no signs of slowing down! They created the very first full-face off-road helmet ever, the Bell Moto-3, way back in 1971. The Moto-3 was a game changer, and set the standard for every off-road helmet to follow. Bell motocross helmets have come a long way since then, providing more protection & features with each passing year. The 2018 Bell MX-9 Mips Pro Circuit Replica Helmet is one of the their best models yet!
The shell on this Bell dirt bike helmet is constructed out of ABS thermoplastic, the same stuff they make Legos out of. Anyone who has stepped on a rogue Lego piece knows exactly how strong this material is. ABS has many properties that make it absolutely perfect for the 2018 Bell MX-9 Mips Pro Circuit Replica helmet. First, it provides excellent resistance against impacts & abrasions. The material is just flexible enough to bend, helping to mitigate the force from impact. Second, the material is super lightweight, which competitive racers will like. The second shell layer is made from EPS foam, whose job is to absorb impacts rather than deflect. These two layer work together to protect against head injuries. The shell and EPS come in 3 different sizes to accommodate different head shapes & sizes, which creates a more tailored fit.
This Monster motocross helmet actually has a third way to keep riders protected from head injuries. The 2018 Bell MX-9 Mips Pro Circuit Replica helmet is equipped with Mips energy management system. It utilizes a low friction layer in between the EPS and ABS that allows the two sections of the helmet to glide past each other during the brief moment of impact. This counterintuitive system is scientifically proven to reduce the risk of head injuries. It redirects the rotational forces that would otherwise be transferred to the brain. Many different brands have gotten onboard with Mips protection, across many different sports. This helmet complies with both DOT and ECE safety standards.
This Bell dirt bike helmet has many other features beyond protective capabilities, like the Velocity Flow Ventilation™. This system provides maximum ventilation by harnessing the riders’ forward momentum. The helmet is engineered with tunnels and shafts that replace hot air, with cool fresh air. This process keeps riders comfortable so they can focus on their race. Another cool feature on this Bell dirt bike helmet is the integrated roost guard. It prevents dirt, rock & mud from getting inside the helmet, further distracting the rider. Honestly, this motocross helmet has way too many features to list. The best way to check them all out, is to pick one up! At BTO Sports, we carry all the best dirt bike helmets, like the 2018 Bell MX-9 Mips Pro Circuit Replica Helmet!
