Looking at the Bell MX9 Adventure Helmet with Mips (Multi Directional Impact Protection System)
Any one with an opinion on this helmet?

I can't find anything about a Bell FX9, I wonder if you meant the Bell Mx-9? That's the one I bought a couple of months ago. Mine isn't the adventure model that you asked about. Mine has no face shield, I wear goggles with it. I like that it lets a lot of air through and is very comfy and light. I think it'll do fine if I have a get-off at slower off-pavement speeds, but it doesn't feel substantial enough for me to feel safe wearing it regularly on the street.

I read an article in Popular Mechanics or Popular Science (they blend in my mind) some time back on this technology as it applied to football helmets. They were pretty positive.
I've had the FX9 with Mips for 2 months now, it fits well with plenty of air flow.
