Unfortunately for me, the Mag-9 didn’t work particularly well on my head. The main problem was my eyeglasses; try as I might I just couldn’t get the Bell to fit well while wearing them. Without them the fit was as good as it gets, on par with anything I’ve worn, so I doubt switching to another size would have helped much. I was also put off by the squared-off design of the helmet, which gives it a vaguely Roman gladiator-ish look. I realize appearance is entirely subjective but let’s be realistic; an awful lot of helmets get sold because the buyer finds them attractive. I also feel that the Mag-9 at $169.95 is somewhat overpriced, though to mitigate that, there is a five-year warranty, and like I said earlier, the helmet boasts eight possible configurations.
