I wore a Bell Moto-8 a few years back and loved it, so when I got word that the Moto-9 was supposed to improve on the previous model’s assets, I was excited to try it. The new lid uses a carbon fiber and fiberglass blend for the shell with a standard EPS liner covered by a removable, antimicrobial comfort liner. All told, the 3-lb. 4-oz. Moto-9 picks up about five ounces over the Moto-8.
