Aaron Gwin needs no introduction. On that note, allow us to introduce him. Gwin is an eight-time U.S. national champion and a five-time UCI Downhill World Cup overall champion. He knows his way around a bike, to say the least. He grew up riding BMX, then moto and finally downhill mountain bikes, where he has made a name for himself. And he isn’t done yet.

For the 2018 season, he will be racing with Bell helmets protecting his head. Gwin is known for being involved in the development of products he uses and Bell is no different. He has his own G-Spec TRP brakes, a signature tire from Onza and he has helped Bell with innovation and design for the Full-9 helmet.

For the 2018 season, Gwin will be wearing Bell’s Full-9 downhill helmet as he attempts to add to his already impressive 19 UCI Downhill World Cup wins. His season starts in LoĊĦinj, Croatia, for the first UCI Downhill race of the year.
