What's this?

Bell MX-9 ADV Barricade Helmet

Born from Bell's extensive and legendary experience, the Bell MX-9 Helmet blends the best of their dirt and street knowledge into a feature packed middleweight ADV helmet. Equally at home on the street as it is in the dirt, the MX-9 panders to those riders who are out there pushing boundaries and not stopping when the road ends and the trail begins. 

The lightweight polycarbonate shell comes in three different sizes, mitigating bulk and providing a more comfortable fit. Bell's velocity-flow ventilation system keeps air flowing, forcing fresh air in and hot moist air out, while the removable and washable liner and cheek pads ensures you can keep sweat and bacteria build up at bay. 

The MX-9 ADV helmet can also transform into a more streetable helmet by removing the peak visor. Included side pods replace the visor where it mounts to the helmet, giving you sleek top-gun styling. When you hit the dirt and need the added protection of a pair of goggles, simply flip up the shield and throw 'em on. The MX-9 is designed to work with any dirt goggle out there. 

Truly a go-anywhere, do-anything helmet, the Bell MX-9 Adventure helmet fills a much needed gap in the market and is perfect for pros and beginners alike.

Because it matches the type of motorcycle I have (BWM F800GS).
Juan Diego M on Aug 6, 2016
I needed a better helmet to ride dusty atv trails and single track. I have been using a HJC street bike helmet just to have a face shield. With the MX-9 adventure I not only have better ventilation but can wear goggles AND use the face shield.
brad s on Jul 31, 2016
I like the idea of the dual sport concept while still be stylish on road and maintaining safety features like its DOT and ECE rating.
Devon C on Jul 13, 2016
I purchased one in the past and Love this Helmet!
Larry S on Jun 7, 2016

frederick p on May 30, 2016
Good fit and very well vented for low speed riding. I also like the fact that you can close the visor even with the goggles on.

Jeremy E on Mar 22, 2016
Spoke with a gear specialist here at Revzilla. Bell came highly suggested. I was on the fence between the Bell and the LS2 MX453.
Shaun T on Mar 14, 2016

Zachary R on Aug 25, 2017
What is the difference between the Barricade and the Blockade?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Jus the color scheme.
In the video review the helmet looks to be gray and hi viz green yet on this page the color scheme is black and hi viz yellow. Any confirmation on true color?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: DArk grey with hi viz yellow with black accents on visor and from jaw/ear up and around the back.
Hi guys!

I just bought these helmet and i didnt quite like the mesh area on the cheekpads. Do any of you know what other full fabric cheekpads that can be used on this set of helmet?
Sherman K on Feb 13, 2017
Small medium large. Is the helmet physically diffrent sizes? Or the same size just padding is diffrent?
Ron C on Sep 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As you'll notice in the description, there are actually 3 shell sizes to cover 9 different helmet sizes. So yes, they use the same size shell for 3 helmet sizes and accomplish this by adjusting the padding size.
in the product details it doesnt say if it comes with a smoke or clear shield. in the picture it shows it with a dark smoke shield. if i order one will it come with a smoke shield?
Carlo Z on May 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Carlo Z, this Helmet comes with the clear shield only ! And from what i can tell, Bell hasn't released any of the smoked ones to fit this lid just yet. Hope this helps because i am waiting on Revzilla to email me when the smoked ones are available.
Will this helmet accept SENA 10 mounting and speakers?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a SENA SMH10 unit with the built-in mic and plug for ear buds mounted on the helmet. No issue.
Does this come with a clear lens option?
A shopper on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I ordered mine and it came with a clear lens, I believe that the lens is also interchangeable.
Great helmet, fits snug but not too tight.
im planing to get the mx9 bell dual sport, and using it in tropical country, we have i lot of rain is it ok ?, thank you
A shopper on Sep 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Top and rear vents don't close. Mouth does. Haven't ride in the rain so can't comment.
Does the face sheid lift up on the mx-9 barricade?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does and pretty smoothly at that.
A C on Oct 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From what information I have that is in the product videos. The difference is in the graphics and colors. So its just a matter of which color you prefer.
