Born from Motocross. Bell might have had an unfair advantage in creating its new top-of-the-heap full-face bike 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 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-centre for Bell designers was not just meeting minimum certifications, but incorporating the most advanced, relevant safety enhancements available. That's why they made the Full-9 compliant 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 they ported over the integrated accommodation of the Eject Helmet Removal System and magnetic cheekpads from the Moto-9. These two features allow the helmet to be gently removed from a rider's head, reducing the potential for secondary injuries.
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-and loop material. Co-moulded 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 of 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, then 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.

This is my first full-face helmet and it is much more comfortable that I was expecting. I am not an expert regarding features/build quality etc, but an experienced motorcyclist friend who works in a shop selling motorcycle gear (including helmets of course) was highly impressed when I showed him! Expensive, but you get what you pay for as they say.
