Bell Releases MX-9 MIPS Rally Collab Helmet with Roland Sands Design
Bell announces RSD’s first MX-9 graphic
Over the past 10 years, Bell and I have created 30-plus graphics across its line of street helmets, and this is our first take on an MX-9 moto helmet.

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. — Bell is proud to announce the Roland Sands Design (RSD) MX-9 MIPS Rally, an all-new race-inspired graphic collaboration between Bell and former racer, renowned bike builder and designer Roland Sands.

The MX-9 MIPS Rally graphic honors throwback racing liveries and paint schemes with its bold, color-blocked design and checkered flag cues. Featuring branding from Dunlop, K&N and Motul — all longtime partners of both Sands and his race series, the Super Hooligan National Championship — the helmet graphic lives up to Bell’s and Sands’ racing legacies.

“Roland Sands is a longtime partner of the Bell brand, and this is another graphic in a long line of collaborations,” said SJ Owen, marketing director at Bell Helmets. “Bell was born from racing, and to work with Sands and other storied brands like Dunlop, K&N and Motul, who also share that heritage, has been a fantastic opportunity. We are excited to see the reaction from motorcyclists and look forward to releasing other graphics with RSD later this year.”

The RSD MX-9 MIPS Rally helmet features a polycarbonate shell; the Mips® energy management system; an adjustable visor; Velocity Flow ventilation; and a removable, washable, antimicrobial liner for hosing down after a long ride. Three shell sizes and multiple cheek pads and liners allow for riders to customize fitment easily. Whether you’re at the motocross track or hitting the streets on a tracker, the RSD MX-9 MIPS Rally stands out from the rest.

“I’ve been wearing Bell helmets since my racing days,” said Roland Sands, owner of RSD. “Over the past 10 years, Bell and I have created 30-plus graphics across its line of street helmets, and this is our first take on an MX-9 moto helmet. I’m fortunate to work with partners like Bell, Dunlop, K&N and Motul, who have been longtime supporters of RSD. Stay tuned, as we have more exciting projects coming down the line later this year.” 

Available at retailers soon, the RSD MX-9 MIPS Rally comes in XS through XXXL sizes, with different thickness cheek pads and liners sold separately. The RSD MX-9 MIPS Rally will be available at BellHelmets.com, RolandSands.com and Bell Helmet dealers for $194.95.
