Bell Mag 9 Sena Rally Helmet
Excellent value and style
I got this for the Sena system but have found it to be better than expected. The main benefits are...
1) Reduced fatigue from great fit
2) Passenger no longer had wind buffeting from wind slipstream caused by helmet
3) Great air flow makes helmet very comfortable!

Using an XL for my 24" noggin. Fits perfect around forehead with no hot spots. Cheek / jaw padding is a bit snug especially while putting on and removal, hoping will conform better with use. Wide distortion free field of vision, sun shield is really nice and convenient. Sena unit virtually disappears within the left side of helmet, microphone boom routes nicely and is not in the way, speaker placement is super easy and sounds great. I removed visor to facilitate storage of 2 helmets in tour-pack.
Best 3/4 helmet I've ever worn and I've used Arai's.

Over rated, Leaves a lot to be desired
I waited to review this helmet to give it a fair analysis. Bought it mainly for the Sena bluetooth which I already have. I thought I could just the existing mount from my Sena and just go with it. No, had to order a special mount to fit the helmet, an added $40 towards the helmet. Helmet wind noise is bad, defeats the purpose of the bluetooth. I don't personally like the sun shield lever, somewhat difficult to feel for and operate. The face shield seems loose and has tendency to fall down at times.
I bought this to replace an older helmet similar features, visor,sun shield and face shield. The older one was half the price and much better. I have other helmets and rank this bell to be among the lowest.

My first helmet and I made the right choice!
The helmet plain looks good just sitting on the seat of my Sportster. But looking good only goes so far and then performance needs to take over. This helmet takes you to the finish line! Bell once again delivers with style and quality!

Only choice for built in SENA
I got my wife and I each a Mag 9 Rally Helmet for the Sena units. The fit and finish is as good as any. Wind noise is pretty bad at highway speed for the communicators.
I love the helmet and I couldn't imagine owning a helmet now without the flip down sun shield. The clear shield doesn't go up enough and I find myself repeatedly trying to push it up more. It's just above your line of sight and a bit of a pain. Other than that I absolutely love the helmet and have only worn my full face once since and I felt claustrophobic
I ride a 2009 Concours 1400
We've been riding the helmets since last fall.

Bell Mag 9 Helmet
I ride a Can Am Commander mostly on dirt trails. It is difficult to communicate with my passengers while wearing helmets and riding the trails. This helmet provides protection but also offers a very cool way to add intercom and Bluetooth tunes to your helmet. Installation of the Sena Bluetooth system was very easy to install and setup. I love the Revzilla youtube demo videos. It helped me make my decision to purchase the helmet. I am happy with my purchase and as always Revzilla is lightning fast in processing my orders!! Thanks

I really like the helmet. A bit tight on the ears, but may just be my big ears. The wife has no complaints.
Best helmet I've found with the sun visor. Most of them stop with the bottom edge right in your line of vision. Not the Mag 9. No interference at all with vision.
I am very pleased.

An OK Helmet
I purchased the helmet in connection with my purchase of the Sena SMH-10. That component fits well with the helmet. Size and fit was fine, but it is a bit too noisy. Another item that annoyed me was the face shield when lifted up would tip down while riding and I would find myself having to kick it up routinely. Over all not my favorite helmet, I have moved it down the pecking list when I reach for a helmet.
