Introducing the All-New Moto-9 Flex
The Moto-9 Flex is the most advanced helmet Bell has ever produced, designed to manage linear and rotational energy in certain low, mid, and high-speed impacts. This ground-breaking helmet also incorporates an “Adaptive Fit” system containing a segmented liner, designed to conform to a rider’s head for a better fit and more predictable energy management. Moto-9 Flex is quickly setting a new level for rider protection in both motocross and off-road racing and will be available this April.
Bell Helmets once again leads the industry in innovation with the introduction of their Custom-Fit Helmet program. Make sure to stop by the Bell Booth to learn more about the proprietary 3D-imaging process that scans the riders head to create a “Custom- Fit” Moto-9. It takes only a few minutes and the scanning will be FREE for anyone in attendance.
For those riders who would like to try out a Bell Moto-9 at no charge, you can simply stop by the Bell Booth and sign up to take one for a test ride during one of your practice sessions or race motos. We will have all sizes available.
