Get the most out of your seat time with a Fox helmet
Fox built its reputation making helmets and other gear for motorcross. The company has taken its expertise in MX helmet design and leveraged this know-how into its line of Fox helmet for mountain biking and BMX. For instance, Fox’s advanced helmet knowledge helped it to design the Fox Rampage helmet specifically for downhill mountain biking, a sport that has demonstrated higher risk to the head and face compared to recreational street riding. The Fox Rampage meets ASTM F1952 standards for downhill mountain bike helmets, which requires a high level of impact protection and provides performance criteria for chin bars.
XSportsProtective staff picks for Fox helmets
We love the all-mountain Fox Flux helmet because of its light weight and versatility. It works for mountain biking, trail biking, or even urban commuting. Some key features of the Fox Flux helmet:
- 20 vents offer tons of ventilation to keep you cool
- Deep rear profile on the EPS shell offers more coverage on the lower back of your head than traditional XC helmets
- In-mold technology molds the outer shell onto the EPS foam inner core and makes the Fox Flux light weight
- Outer shell covers and protects the EPS from dings and dents, and adds structural integrity with a molded wrap fit.
- "Detox" ratchet adjustable fit/retention system
- Visor and rear top spoiler give the Fox Flux a unique profile
- Meets CPSC, CE: EN 1078, and AS/NZS 2063 safety standards
We also like the Fox Transition helmet. Available in both an in-mold and hardshell version, the Fox Transition is a high-performance mountain bike/BMX helmet for dirt jump, street and freestyle riders. Twelve vents help keep you cool, while the deep profile protects the back of your head. Both the in-mold or the hardshell versions of the Fox Transition provide excellent protection, however, the in-mold version is a bit more lightweight.
