If you have been flicking through the mag and landed on page 124 then this is where you need to be! We've teamed up with Bell to offer one lucky reader a chance to win one of their Full 9 Carbon helmets, not bad eh? All you need to do is answer the simple question above and you will be in with a chance of protecting your bonce with some shiny Bell carbon, there might be a clue in the blurb below...


You won’t find another helmet manufacturer with deeper roots in motocross. Much of what Bell engineers learned from creating its award-winning Moto-9 helmet went into the Full-9. Take that unrivaled experience, combine it with feedback from downhill and BMX champions, and you have the winning formula. The Full-9 meets the most stringent ASTM Downhill Mountain Bike Racing certification as well as standard CPSC and CE bicycle safety benchmarks. Additional safety-oriented motocross trickle-down technologies include the Eject Helmet Removal System and magnetic cheekpads. Beyond that, the Full-9 includes features like Soundtrax, built-in speaker pockets and audio cable routing - plus slick mounts for GoPro® or Contour® cameras. Add in a lightweight carbon shell, a wide field of view, Overbrow Ventilation intakes and Velocity Flow Ventilation and you have the world’s most advanced helmet for DH or BMX.

The OVERBROW VENTILATION™ intakes work with the moto-proven Velocity Flow Ventilation™ system on the

Full-9 to actively usher cool air over the head via three ports on the brow of the helmet. A specially designed

bridge keeps the ducting free from obstruction while the Full-9’s air-channel matrix works to maximise full-head



The Full-9’s INTEGRATED CAMERA MOUNT seamlessly affixes your wearable camera in the perfect spot

without the need for messy double-stick tape or zip-ties. The removable breakaway mount clicks into the Full-9’s

top vent, leaving no trace when not in use and  putting the camera in the ideal position to capture your ride. The

mount’s co-molded rubber pad reduces vibration and noise when riding rough terrain. Note: Ships with two

camera mounts—one for GoPro® and one for Contour®.


Integrated accommodation of the EJECT HELMET REMOVAL SYSTEM allows first responders to gently remove

the helmet from a rider’s head, reducing the potential for secondary injuries.


SOUNDTRAX™ is Bell’s system of built-in speaker pockets and integrated audio cable routing. No goofy

modifications needed—Soundtrax integrates perfectly with the Full-9 to provide the backbeat to your ride.


The MAGNEFUSION™ REMOVABLE MAGNETIC CHEEKPADS swap in and out effortlessly for ease-of-

removal both after a crash, as well as for quick-drying between runs.
