Does anyone have a Bell Full 9 or Full 9 Fusion?

I'm going to get either the Full 9 Fusion, or TLD D3 Fiberlite. The Bell has the added benefit of Mips and is a bit lighter, but I cant find many side-on pictures of it being worn. From what I can find it looks like its got a really stubby chin guard which looks a bit odd.
Anyone got one and be able to take a plain ol' side on shot for me?

Are you ordering online? Always try it on in person. Fit is so important.

Also buy the Fusion 9 if possible, same helmet without being carbon.

Any initial impressions or comparisons?
How´s the fit and padding compared to the D3?
Looks very good in black!

The D3 was a basic model with no safety-related gizmos, and after I trashed it with a heavy hit on the side, I became a bit more aware of brain injuries and wanted my next helmet to be as safe as possible. I can't vouch for the effectiveness of the Fluid Inside technology in the Rampage, but it gives me some more peace of mind. The fit is very similar, if a tad tighter on the Rampage. They feel very similar to wear, the only difference is that the chin bar feels a bit shorter on the Rampage. There is no meaningful weight difference.

The rampage looks so breathable and airy

Anyone using Smith Goggles? Which ones? thoughts?

I'm looking for a new pair to go with my TLD Stage Helmet.

have the squad and run them with my halfshell.

They're okay, ventilation is good but i think the fit is okay at best

My 100% accuri's are much more comfortable although hotter.

If you're the kind of person who fogs eyewear easily then they're good. If not there are better options options on the market IMO.

I held the new Leatt goggles at the sea otter yesterday and they feel really nice. Like Airbrakes but way cheaper.

What lens' do the Squads have? And thanks for the input man! I like my 100% for moto now, and love my Oakleys for Snow, but I kinda wanted to try something different and had my eye on the Squads.

I think mine are the red mirror, it's a hard precurved lens.

I don't think they're worth $85, I snagged mine used for like $20.

I recently got a Transfer 9... awesome helmet. Had a Rampage before that, some other Bell before that... etc.
Goggles? Normally don't wear them... don't have any clue what they are, got them when I played racquetball lol
