SMH-10 clamp for Bell Mag9
I am mostly satisfied with the SMH-10 Clamp Kit for the Bell Mag9 helmet, but there is room for improvement. The clamp fits the helmet as advertised, but the SMH-10 fits into the clamp with a bit more resistance that it should. The clip/release tab just barely locks onto the raised ridge that holds the SMH-10 in place. It doesn't seem that it will fall out, but a more precise fit would make me feel more comfortable. Once the clamp is installed the plastic cover can no longer be placed in position over the port when the SMH-10 in not in use. If you don't keep the SMH-10 in the port then the contacts are exposed to the weather. It would be nice if the cover can be replaced when the Sena is not in use.

Kudos to Bell and Sena for seamless integration.
I have multiple helmets and just got the Bell Qualifier DLX Clutch with the Sena integration kit. Installation was at first, easy. Remove the left cheek pad and the outer snap door, pull the rubber plug, snap in the mount. However it was very difficult to get the mount flush with the outer surface, so much so that it was nearly impossible to get a positive latching with the Sena unit. Looking further, I realized that the plastic trim on the bottom neck roll was acting as a wedge, making it too thick for the Sena mount. I notched the plastic trim (cut a C shape) where it was interfering and now it fits great. The headset still needs a good push to lock in, but holds tight now. Use the included allen screw to make sure the mount is as solid as possible.

I love that the clamp is inside the shell and the Sena unit is partially embedded. It reduces some of the width and makes it less likely to hit my shoulder during certain moves.
I do find out a little difficult to mount the SMH10 into the cradle. It's a bit tight and the clip doesn't want to go under the lip unless I help it. I'm a bit worried about it popping out inadvertently, but we will see if it gets easier to insert as things wear in with use.
I really love that the Qualifier DLX has pockets for the speakers built into the cheek pads! Awesome. Velcro closure means the speakers stay put, with no need to mount velcro to the helmet shell.
I love the Sena and it makes group rides me enjoyable.

Installation was easy and it fit the helmet perfectly. Be sure to order the mic clamp kit for the bell sena mag helmet and not the regular clamp kit.

Great product for Bell helmets with the SMH10 interface location.
Wish the headset would get a little louder but other than that it was a great fitment and product just like described for the Bell Helmets. Only thing I wish the SMH10 had was a radio tuner built in.

Clamp unit works as well as the original provided with the purchase of Sena unit...probably cause it's exactly the same thing! Easy to fit and so far...robust.

Excellent product - well integrated
Only issue I have is that it would have been nice to be able to reinstall the plastic cover when the Sena unit is not installed on the helmet.
