With seven AMA Championships to his name, James Stewart would be the obvious man to follow regarding what gear is safe.

And one helmet James “Bubba” Stewart relies on to protect his head in case of an accident is the Bell Moto-9.

Endorsed by James Stewart, the Moto-9 dirt helmet features many upgrades, including improved fit, ventilation, comfort and safety features.

One of the safety features that keeps Stewart in tact is Bell’s new magnetic cheekpad system, the Magnefusion Emergency Release System (MERS).

In case of emergency situations, which always arrive with a champion such as James Stewart, MERS allows for ease of helmet removal.

About MERS, Bell says “Used in conjunction with the Eject Helmet Removal System-which the Moto-9’s liner was specifically designed to accommodate-the two features allow First Responders to gently remove the helmet from a rider’s head, reducing the potential for secondary neck or spine injuries.”

Besides MERS, the Bell Moto-9 features a “removable, washable comfort liner made from X-Static – a silver-woven antimicrobial and antibacterial material- wicks moisture away from the head and kills off 99.9% of odor causing bacteria.”

And when it comes to ventilation which riders like Stewart need to keep cool during those intense sprint races, the Bell Moto-9 features the Velocity Flow Ventilation system, which actually pulls air into the helmet.
