What’s in the Bell Moto-10 Spherical? | Latest
The safety features in the Bell Moto-10 Spherical will revolutionise the way we think about helmet technology. Take a look!
SPHERICAL TECHNOLOGY POWERED BY MIPS
As the demands of racing increase, so does the need for increased protection. The Moto-10 is the first off- road helmet to offer Spherical TechnologyTM powered by MIPS®. Created in the Bell+Giro testing Dome in Scotts Valley, CA, our proprietary Spherical Technology features a Ball-and-Socket design that helps redirect impact forces away from the brain, allowing the outer liner to rotate around the inner liner during a crash. Because of the Spherical Technology channels inside the first-of-its-kind segmented 3k carbon shell, we achieve superior sweat management, weight reduction, and ventilation like never before—all without compromising energy management.
SEGMENTED 3K SHELL
Getting cool air in the helmet is key but expelling hot air out of the helmet is even more important. Another first in the industry, the Moto-10’s segmented shell design provides a large exhaust vent, ensuring the rider stays comfortable and cool. Combined with our proven 3k carbon and you have the looks, light weight, and performance to attack the track.
THERMAL EXCHANGE AIRFLOW SYSTEM
This ventilation is so extreme, we named it the Thermal Exchange Airflow SystemTM (T.E.A.S.) because of how it sucks in cool air like a vacuum and then expels hot air through the side and rear exhaust ports. And as any rider knows, ventilation and sweat management go hand-in-hand.
Take it from Cooper Webb: “I can feel the sweat running down my forehead, then getting pushed across my brow and away from my googles.” Excited yet?
It’s not just the interior of the Moto-10 that’s protecting the rider, it’s the exterior as well. We constructed two NMRTM (No Missed Races) bumpers on either side of the helmet. These bumpers are made with a softer EPP material that compresses under load but bounces back to its original form, helping to reduce the likelihood of further injury caused from the helmet contacting your body. While no crash is good, a broken collar bone will keep you out of the Championship.
PANORAMIC GOGGLE PORT
To top things off, the Moto-10 offers a Panoramic Goggle port—the largest in the market. The wider port provides better fitment, optimal sealing, and a massive field of view, increasing the rider’s visibility and safety when needed most.
MAGNEFUSION CHEEK PAD EMERGENCY RELEASE SYSTEM
Our MagnefusionTM magnetic cheek pads are easy to remove for washing and enable emergency responders to easily detach the cheek pads first before the helmet following an impact.
The Moto-10 was built for the fastest racers in the world, and every racer knows managing moisture is important mid moto. With the combination of T.E.A.S., Spherical venting channels, and a segmented shell, we created not only industry- leading ventilation but also the ability to force perspiration across the rider’s brow — away from their goggles — preserving vision late in a race.
VIRUS COOLJADE LINER
To withstand the heat exchange and hard use, we added a Virus CoolJadeTM liner. This removable, washable liner is made of fabric that has been infused with recycled jade to create a natural cooling effect. The ultra- wicking construction combined with CoolJade- infused yarn decreases your skin surface temperature up to 10 ̊ F —keeping you cool, comfortable, and focused on the race at hand.
FLYING BRIDGE VISOR
Not all visors are created equal. The Flying BridgeTM Visor design allows more flexibility and improves airflow across the helmet. By not using a traditional center post and screw concept, we’re able to increase the amount of energy management material in a high impact zone.
