Core Technologies: 

  • Progressive Layering: A first-of-its kind, three-layer impact liner designed to manage energy from three potential impact scenarios: low, mid, and high-speed.
  • Adaptive Fit: Segmented construction, automatically conforming to a rider's head for a better fit and more predictable energy management.
  • Rotational Energy Management: A "slip zone" within the impact liner allows for subtle movement between the inner layers and works to reduce rotational energy transfer from angular impacts.
  • Ventilation: With the new segmented and flexible liner in the Moto-9 Flex, Bell were able to add to the proven Velocity Flow Ventilation system to make an even cooler helmet.

    what does one of these things weigh?

    edit: found it 1450 grams or 3.2 lbs. Its going to be hard to beat the comfort of lighter helmets, but I'm interested in trying one on
