Bell Mag 9 Sena Helmet - Solids 4.3 5 123 123
This helmet is very nice I like this helmet good vision.I never use the sun shade just use sun glasses.The sun shade sets to far up for my taste.Great service from revzilla.My first ride the side panel came off.They sent new one no charge.You will like this helmet. November 16, 2015
This product has great features I strongly recommend this item. It's a light helmet and it's designed perfect. November 9, 2015
Nice helmet. Lots of features for the price. I got this helmet for my wife. Main decision was the weight. This is the lightest 3/4 helmet I could find. We just got back from a 10 day 2700 mi. ride. Helmet worked well. November 2, 2015
Some Minor Issues For the price, it's a great helmet. It fits great, the visibility is great and it's lightweight. I does have some issues. The lining is minimal, but the good fit compensates for that. The clear shield is tight, but not too difficult to raise and lower. This may help it stay up when riding with it partially raised. The sun shield is a bit cumbersome and requires some force to lower. It is spring loaded and snaps back up so there is no way to only partially lower it. My major complaint is with the fitment of the Sena SMH-10. It's a very tight fit in the receptacle and the fragile clip on top of the SENA unit is under stress. The plastic cover cannot be replaced once the SENA clamp kit is installed. If I ride without the SENA in place I may have to cover the port with duct tape. Not sure if I can make that cover fit without a little filing or modification. Overall I like the helmet and for the price it's a great bargain. October 29, 2015
Good Value The Bell Mag 9 is a good helmet at a good price. It is reasonably comfortable. However, since I ride in Texas in the summer, I would like to have a bit more ventilation. The Mag 9's ready fitment for a Sena bluetooth unit is a real plus. Installing the speakers is not quite as easy as they would have you believe, but if one is patient it can be done without to much frustration. September 8, 2015
Feature laden open face helmet. True to size, no problems with anything. the tinted visor mechanism is fast, load the spring to put down and bang, hit the switch its up. August 31, 2015
On the price point Good construction, quality SENA fitment, don't forget to pick up the Bell SENA kit for this helmet. Good wind protection with windscreen closed. August 31, 2015
Nice but loud I never really thought that I had a big head until I started shopping for a good helmet. The 2XL for me is a tight fit even with compressing the cheek pads. If I take the cheek pads out the helmet feels great but of course they are needed for comfort. I do like the overall fit and features but in my opinion this is the loudest helmet that I have ever own. You really hear the wind going by and I have a 3/4 size windshield on my F6B. Hard to hear the radio but I do plan on getting the Bluetooth system. I am happy that they made this helmet so you can remove the sun visor as I prefer the look without it plus I don't really believe that you need it. The actual sun glass portion that drops down is excellent! The darkness is perfect and the spring loaded lever is great! This helmet is a keeper, just wish it was a tad larger and quieter!

Michael D: The last time I road a motorcycle was 1974, a Suzuki 175. My helmet was a bell 3/4. We all seemed to be wearing that helmet then, whether riding the street or dirt.

I also like the option of adding the Bluetooth unit down the road. Apr 20, 2014

Roger C: Compatible with Sena SMH10 Mar 17, 2014
W I: We were in the market for new helmets. Bell Helmets used to be quality helmets way back when. So we took a chance on their past reputation and purchase these (2) helmets. We have other helmets with the Sena Smh10's on them. Had to purchasing the special Sena boom mic made specially for this helmet. That was an additional $40 per helmet. The Sena smh10 was the main reason for us even looking at the Bell Helmet. The combination of Sena and Bell made sense. Mar 16, 2014
herman k: like the way it looks and fits Mar 15, 2014
Charles L: Cooler to use in summer, reviews were positive, price was right and reputation of Bell. Mar 6, 2014
Bill F: Price and features Mar 5, 2014
John S: Great reviews, Going to also but sena 10 Mar 1, 2014
tom E: First reason was the molded design that made the Sena headset part of the helmet rather than a bolt on afterthought.
Felt the drop down sun shield would be important as we ride in shady wooded areas that quickly turn into open sunny stretches.
Feb 27, 2014
glenn b: After much research we decided on Bell Sena because of the Blue-tooth capability, Bell name, and design features of the helmet. These helmets will be used for long distance traveling. Feb 21, 2014
Donnie L: For its compatibility with the sena and for its versatility of shielded or unshielded visor of visorless I intend on wearing a face mask and goggles to make a comfortable off-roader with bluetooth music! Feb 18, 2014
C O: The sena integration and the ability to have the peak on or off as well as the face shield on or off are all really nice features. And the internal sunshade actually covers my eyes really well so I am very pleased with that. Feb 12, 2014
Ronald Y: Integrated mounting for Sena headsets.
Reputation of Bell Helmets.
Feb 12, 2014
james t: It's a nice looking helmet and comfortable at a good price. Feb 10, 2014
John V: Like the integration of the sena blu tooth Jan 31, 2014
Koda S: I got this for the integration with my Sena Bluetooth communications set. The recessed fit for the Sena unit is a great design feature. Jan 17, 2014
Greg B: Looks like a great open face helmet for city riding. Dec 30, 2013
Wendel M: Bell seems to have a very good product. Just hope they continue to produce good quality. So far I am very satisfied with them. Nov 28, 2013
Diane B: Husband and I ignorantly bought helmets for round heads. I had serious headaches after 10 minutes of riding and switched to this helmet. I love the integrated communications system and this fits me like a glove! No more headaches and no need to adjust the helmet with 5 hour rides! Now husband is constantly needing to "push" on his helmet to relieve pressure. This is his Christmas gift!!! :) Nov 24, 2013
Nathan H: I'm looking for an open face helmet that has a peak/visor for additional glare avoidance when riding into sunlight. The only other helmet like this I found was an Arai and did not want to spend 3x as much for it. I'm also interested in using the Sena intercom with this helmet although that is not the main reason for the purchase. Nov 15, 2013
Evelyn H: I chose this for the style and features, and purchased from Revzilla because I've done so from this merchant satisfactorily in the past. The price was comparable to other sellers, so the companies reputation made the difference. Nov 3, 2013
Randy P: Looking for an open face Helmet, I liked some of the reviews, and the way it looks, I also like the ability to take off the visor, and face shield. Oct 22, 2013
Robert C: Integrated helmet and Sena Bluetooth unit. Oct 22, 2013
J H: Like the SENA configured helmet Oct 1, 2013
Iain M: Bacause it fits the Sena SMH10. I look forward to receiving the Helmet. Sep 26, 2013
Mark B: The RevZilla review was very helpful. All of the key features were discussed and it gave me confidence in the product. The sizing chart took some of the mystery out of ordering online. Mostly, however, the integration with the Sena headset put this item over the top as far as features. Sep 19, 2013
Jacques C: reading all the positive reveiws sold me on it. Sep 9, 2013
brian h: i like bell helmets Aug 19, 2013

Dave G: Don't listen to those who say not to buy this helmet unless you are using the Sena bluetooth prods. I had absolutely no problems attaching the Harley Premium headset to this helmet. In fact, the Sena capability made the installation just a bit easier- there is a pull out section of foam right under the left cheek pad that makes it eas to clamp the Harley headset to the helmet. The cheek pads have speaker pockets and the wires tuck neatly under the rubber moulding that runs around the outer perimiter. Easy 10 minutes or less to set the whole thing up. So go ahead and get this helmet it works with the HD headset just fine. Apr 19, 2014

Jim W: I have been using the helmet now for two years. I ride an 1800 goldwing and use it with the shield up on the highway. I will drop the shield in the rain or cold or you can use just the sun shield. They work great. Jul 24, 2014
Reply to Jim Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Bryan D: Depends if you bike has a windshield or not, and the dynamics of that. On my Tiger with the stock windshield the buffeting at anything over 50 would push down on the shield and close it. Once I changed from the stock, one this went away.

On my 250 dual sport I can ride at 55-60 with it up, but it's much more comfortable putting it down. Around town it's fine with it up, and is one of the reasons I bought it, give a ton of airflow which is nice here in Florida.

a r: When I've been caught in the rain with this helmet I do not remember water getting in the top or from up under the shield.

A shopper asked: I'm looking for a new helmet and am trying to find an alternate to my beloved Aria Signet GT that is way past it's lifecycle. This is a long oval helmet and fits beautifully. My wife and I need new helmets and we'd love to try a couple of Bell Mag 9 with the integrated Sena intercom headsets. Living in Florida it get's too hot for a full face and my current open face doesn't fit well (it's not right for my head type). I'm worried about the fit of any helmet due to the long oval that seems to be the shape of my head. I keep hearing "Intermediate" oval a lot on Revzilla and know that helmets and sizing have change quite a bit since the Signet GT's introduction. We need to get measurements but I suspect I'll be at the 2XL and she will be a medium. Any thoughts on comparable head types between my Signet GT and the Bell Mag 9? Thank you - Allan Sep 21, 2014

Michael M: My wife and I own the Bell Mag 9. Not quite sure about the fitment of the helmet compared to yours but the quality of the Bell is garbage. This is the first and last Bell I will ever buy. The clips for the windshield break. The levers that open the vents just fall off as you drive down the road. Customer service through Bell has been good but how many times should you fix something before it becomes troublesome. Invest in a different helmet and save yourself the headache. Oct 5, 2014

Bruce C asked: I have 2 Interphone F5s. How would they fit with this product?

I now have an Arai Quantum 2, and I am looking for a 3/4 helmet to use because I just purchased a bike with a windshield and my full coverage is too hot to use. Also, When I put the Interphone inside, my Arai became uncomfortable. I tried this helmet on and it seemed pretty comfortable, but I am leery of the impact of adding the intercom bulk.

David H: I can't help with your question about the fit of the intercom since I use my Bell Mag 9 Sena without any inserts, at least so far. I find it a reasonably comfortable helmet, but not as comfortable as my Shoei Multi-tec. But having the open face design with the easily pull down face shield and separate sun visor really makes this an extremely versatile helmet. And it is far less expensive than any of the brands I normally consider such as Shoei or Arai. Overall I am pleased with this purchase, but not blown away. Jul 6, 2014

Bradley D: I have only used 2 helmets in the last 15 years - The Bell Senna and a full face HJC. Both are size large and the fit is nearly identical in each.

Because the Bell is so open, I don't think I would enjoy a loose fit.

I do like the Bell. It is really convenient if you wear glasses and the sun visor works well.. It is a little noisier than the HJC and it let's in a lot of air for cold weather riding. Other than that it has been excellent

Janie H: The Sena units will work on all 3/4 and full helmets with the standard bracket that is included in the package. They make a separate bracket for the Bell Mag 9 Sena helmet. I like it much better. The unit, instead of hanging on the outside the helmet is now on a 1/4" indented spot in the side of the helmet and is much more secure. Also the ear speakers are in custom made secure pockets in the liner of the helmet instead of being Velcro attached inside a regular helmet. This is also more comfortable and they never come loose when you remove the helmet. I hope this answers your question.

The Mag-9 is Bell's premiere open faced helmet debuted in 2012. 
The beauty of what Bell has done here in 2013 is they've
completely iterated on this helmet.  They made a few key updates, but the
big functionality and why we're calling it the Mag-9 Sena is that it now
has an OEM fitment, you can see right where my finger is, there's an OEM
fitment panel that allows you to integrate seamlessly with the SMH-10 Sena.

So, what Bell did was they went out to the marketplace, they did their
homework, they looked at Carta, they looked at Fit Sena, they looked at the
other Blue Tooth units that were A2DP, that were Blue Tooth 3.0, that were
functional, and usable, and they said, "Who is the best that we can
integrate with, that our Mag-9 open faced customer can really add that Blue
Tooth communicator, but seamlessly do it in a helmet in a very usable way?"
They ultimately selected Sena.

So, remember the Mag-9 is going to be the intermediate oval head shape.
It's a polycarbonate shell, multiple sizes; I think it's an extra small
through 2XL.  There's a lot going on here we're going to walk through some
of the nuances a little bit later in the video.  Let's start out with the
key changes, now remember as we go through this I would love to hear your
gut reaction on our YouTube channel, click right here, subscribe to us,
stay up to date with all of our latest gear reviews.

So, let's walk into the key changes.  The first major change, and again I'm
going to finish here with the install of our Sena unit.  First key change
is they change the lever on the drop down sun visor.  It's now a finger and
a thumb operation, very easy to use.  Remember drop down sun visor anti-
scratch, anti-fog, gives you the ability to not have to wear sunglasses if
you don't want to. Nice touch we've seen it a lot in different progressive
helmet manufacturers, and it was on the original version.  It's now much
easier to use.

Also, staying in that same vein of comfort and flexibility you know they
know, Bell knew that a lot of customers are wearing the open faced helmet
with sunglasses, and sometimes when you're cheek pads are a little bit more
dense near the top it becomes different depending on the type of sunglasses
you're wearing. So what Bell did is they took the top area of this cheek
pad and they tapered it and they made it a little bit less dense foam.  So,
whether you're wearing eyeglasses, or you're wearing sunglasses you're now
going to have an easier time of getting them into the Bell Mag 9 Sena and having
them work comfortably.

The other thing they did on the new Mag-9 is that they've given you an
increased range of motion on your external face shield.  So, this drops
down all the way. The previous Mag-9 used to come up to about there, and
depending on how you ride, and how it sits on your head sometimes you might
get it in the top end of your vision.  So, what Bell's done is they've
given you extra range of motion now to fully clear it from your field of
view, again a really nice touch.

Now moving past that, and remember the Bell Mag 9 comes with a peak, it's
fully removable, there are side pods, you can wear it without the peak, you
can wear it without the shield itself, it's completely configurable.

Let's get into the Sena functionality, and really I'll show you what the
unit looks like, and some of you out there I have a Sena myself, I wear a
Sena, it's very rugged.  In my opinion it's one of the most usable Blue
Tooth communicators on the market.  Really that's why I love that they've
chosen to work with Sena because it's extremely usable.  Remember, ten days
of standby, twelve hours of talk time, A2D which means you can forward and
reverse, play, pause, talk to Siri on an iPhone, multiple device
connectivity over Blue Tooth, so that means GPS, as well as iPhone, up to
four riders 900 meters.  Again, watch our full detailed breakdown on the

The Sena is a rock solid unit. But looking at the Sena and how it would
integrate with the Bell is that now what Bell has done is they've not only
changed the outer shell, but they've also changed the EPS to seamlessly
integrate.  What I'm going to do is show you how easy that is, and how
quickly it works.

So, what you have is this panel on the side, and remember five different
colors in the Mag-9, you also have a couple graphics available as well, and
it's right here on the left side underneath the lever, and you want it on
the left that's typically where Blue Tooth communicators go, because you
can keep your hand on the throttle.

So, as I use my thumbnail, that I've actually, that I bite my fingernails,
so let's see if I can get this off.  There we go.  I pull this door away,
and now I'm exposing a compartment that's perfectly suited for the Sena
unit, and you can even see the way it sits in there is slightly recessed.
The Sena's actually one of the bigger units, and for a lot of touring guys
they're okay with it, but if it sits fully off the Mag 9 Sena helmet you might get a
little bit of noise because it is a bigger unit, even though it is
aerodynamic, water resistant, you know it covers all of those bases.  By
slightly recessing it you're having a better chance to not create anything
external kind of extreme hanging of the helmet.  So again, you get a more
streamline air flow.

But what you have is you have the unit that would sit in there and recess
in but still leave enough room for the buttons, the connection port, you
know the jog dial here that again is one of the big selling features you
can also press, but behind that you're going to see that we have EPS cut
out. And what Bell's actually done, I'm going to go get my doughnut here,
is they've changed the EPS.  So, as I flip over from the top I'm going to
start to remove things, and again it's a good time to talk about the liner.
So, as I remove the liner out, remember anti-microbial microfiber, it's
wicking, the pockets around the ear are plenty cut out to handle the
seating unit, which has stereo speakers.

You can pull this bad boy out; you can pull out the entire liner.  It
actually has channels in it for the EPS.  I might as well just remove the
entire liner here, and remember intermediate oval head shape, and if you're
concerned about fit, remember we ship for free, exchange for free, no
restock fee if you need to send it back to us.  So, don't fret if you're
really curious about the sizing. But I'm going to remove my neck roll.
Here's my comfort liner, notice the cutouts they give you good air flow
through the EPS channel.

If you didn't notice there are two vents on top of the Mag-9, but as we get
into the guts here, I'm going to rotate this way, and you're going to see
around here on the side that where Sena would go we have this piece.  Can
you see that piece, if you can come in here really tight?  And what I can
do is I can put my finger in here and just quickly pop this piece right
out, and it has a pull tab at the top.  You can pull it from the top or the
bottom, but this is my pocket that's going to allow me to pull it out so I
can use the OEM fitment for the Sena SMH-10 Bell version.

So, once I pull the EPS piece out I can now and install my Sena, and again
I've removed the entire guts of the Mag 9 helmet, but really all you need to do
is remove that left side cheek pad.  What I want to do is pull everything
out and get it out of the way, but for you guys at home installing this you
don't have to go that far.

Now if I look at it, remember I have my cutout on the side, I know have my
cut out on the inside, OEM fitment, and what I'm going to do here is I'm
going to take my, really the female bracket here that has the connector,
that has the boom mic, that sits in this channel, and there's really only
one place it can go, and as I turn it this way I'm going to slide it up
from the outside, and you need to make sure to get it all the way in that
way you have room to install the Sena, and you can see it just flush mounts
right in there.  It completely closes that off, it completes the seal, and
now I have my connectors. And there's also that little screw hole you can
see it right to the left of the connection port, and you want to leave it
permanently installed, you want to make sure it's on their securely it
comes with a single screw and an Allen you just pop that bad boy right in.

Now what I can do is I can reach across, take my actual Sena unit, this is
the actual unit that you charge, this is what has all of the guts and
technology in it, slide it from the bottom down to the top it pops right
in, and it's that simple.  Recess mounted, completely installed inside, and
you'll notice I have my two speakers.  They're stereo speakers, they're
thick enough, and both sides of the helmet have plenty of room to where you
just snake these up, put the cheek pads back in, and you sit them in the
little pockets of the ears, and they kind of, they don't Velcro on, but
they have teeth to them so they kind of hold themselves in place.

Again, from front on you can see the low profile of the unit on the Bell Mag 9. And if I
turned to the side, you can also see again Bell being very thorough as they
typically are, you can see that I have my boom mic sits in a nice recessed
cut away from this EPS liner.  So, they've really thought through the
complete recipe for getting an OEM fitment on a Blue Tooth unit within
their helmet without having anything bulky, and remember there's voice
activation.  It's an adjustable boom, you put it where it needs to be. And
it's also going to be noise cancelling, so whether you're riding at speed
with it up, or with the face shield up or down you're going to have the
ability to have you're fully functional until.

Now, while I do have it in there I might as well leave it in.  I'm going to
let those speakers free float, because honestly placing them is the least
exciting part of the process, and it takes two seconds.  You can see the
interior liner, cut-aways, four vented channels, we have four exhausts in
the helmet, two intakes across the top you can see them with nice big pulls
so you can find them with a glove.

I mentioned the peak is removable, it's reconfigurable, it does have side
pods that go on there, remember it's a polycarb shell, multiple EPS sizes
that go up with the different sizes of the actual helmet itself, so
starting with extra small and going all the way up. And it's going to be
that intermediate oval head shape, which I did touch on, and remember that
means it should fit most people, but if you're curious you can always give
our gear geeks a shout out and talk through the sizing, and we're not going
to hurt you if you need to send it back.

You know other key things of note with the Mag-9, we saw it in 2012 be a
nice step forward from Bell. Now moving into 2013 you're getting the added
benefit of the seamless OEM interface with the Sena SMH-10, and remember
you can buy the Bell version, which is kind of comes with the housing
that's pre-integrated, or you can always buy that $40.00 piece if you
already own a Sena, and just buy that housing that sits on the back of it
and allows you to flush mount it right on.
