The AMA Expert class competitor has long been one of the top riders in the sport, and now will be heading to the track with a Bell helmet on his head. The company recently announced that Mees has signed on to endorse the brand’s products. In the AMA Expert Singles class, he’ll wear a Bell Moto-9 helmet. For the Expert Twins series, Mees will switch to the ultra-light Bell Star Carbon.
“I’ve been a big fan of Bell since I was a kid, so when they asked me to join their team, I jumped at the opportunity,” said Mees. “I recently had the chance to tour Bell’s technology center in Scotts Valley and I was very impressed by how much work they put into helmet performance and safety. I’m looking forward to a great season and am very proud to be running Bell in 2012.”
Last year, Mees was the runner-up in the AMA Grand National Championship, and will look to take the title from Jake Johnson as the season gets underway in 2012.
