I would like to give my observations on the Bell MX-9 Adventure MIPS. As I continue using the helmet, i will add to this review.On opening the box… Well packaged, both Amazon and Bell did a very good job.
No shipping damage found.
Inside the Bell box, there came a helmet bag, some literature on MIPS, information on the antibacterial liner, the Bell Helmet Instruction manual, and a zip lock bag with two plastic disks (Im assuming these disks are to be used to cover and protect the side visor mounting holes when visor is not in use.
There’s nothing in the owners manual as to their use). It is a sharp looking helmet. Comes with a clear shield and a red and black visor.Fit… Fits as expected.
The cheek pads on my old HJC CL-17 (sports bike helmet) nearly reached the corners of my mouth. The Bell cheek pads do not. No deal breaker, the Bell still fits very nice, no movement, no unusual discomfort.
My head is oval so there is some pressure on my forehead but after an hour ride, no blistering headache.
As with any new equipment, give yourself some break-in time before heading out on a long trip.Visibility… I really like the extended side to side visibility when comparing it to my HJC.
That head check right, or left on a lane change is really nice, can see way back there now. The shield is just a little odd. It’s as if the light waves passing through the shield are bent just a little, it’s not… crystal clear.
Maybe it can best be described as if looking through old 1900’s glass window panes, but very subtle. The other thing, the lower edge of the shield has a 90 degree bevel.
I uploaded and image. Facing forward, head straight, if you look down, the 90 degree bevel distorts everything in view. Like your gage cluster, or items mounted to your hand bars like GPS, phone, etc.
I’m nearly 6ft, and when seated, I can see my gages ok, but handle bar controls are distorted. Standing could be a real issue. This isn’t a deal breaker for me, I can tilt my head down while street riding.
And when off road adventure riding, I plan to remove the shield and wear goggles.Noise… With this helmet, I plan to have the visor on all the time. So, my noise testing is from that perspective.
Obviously, without the visor, at highway speeds, the overall noise level will be lower. I’m about 5” 11”, my Tenere seat height is about 34”, and with the bikes adjustable stock windshield set to its lowest height, the noise is extremely high.
Ear protection would be strongly recommended. Stock windshield height raised, the noise level isn’t much different then my old HJC.Adding a Scala Gx9… No problemsMissing part… Oddly enough, and somewhat disappointing.
When I removed the helmet visor and shield to clean it. I noticed one of the three mounting screws was missing a small rubber washer. This little washer goes on the mounting screw first, then attached to the helmet.
Something to help prevent scratching, maybe help to prevent over tightening. Not a big deal, I’m sure I can find one at Home Depot. But still….10/2018 update – It is loud at speed.
Hearing protection should be a serious consideration on long trips at speed.
Taking of the visor will reduce the noise, just be sure not to loose the small parts.That bevel on the bottom edge of the visor does interfere with visibility when looking down at the gauges.
