Fox Racing is one of the most storied names in motocross and MTB. Since 1974, Fox has been making apparel and protective gear for extreme sports. Basically, if you’re going into dirt, they have you covered from head to toe. Fox makes helmets, goggles, jackets, jerseys, base layers, guards, gloves, mountain bike shorts, pants, and even socks. Fox Racing apparel has you covered off the bike as well with their modern styles and comfortable fits.
Fox exists for dirt, so their helmet range skips over cross-country and goes straight to trail and enduro. Fox's Speedframe Pro Helmet has excellent coverage, while still letting air flow through and around your head. When your jam is gravity, Fox has the Rampage helmet, a full-face helmet that features excellent airflow and superior visibility. Splitting the difference between the extremes is the Proframe Helmet, which is both full-face and super-light. The Fox Flight helmet is made for dirt jumping pursuits, featuring smaller vents and a lower back.
Fox apparel is always functional and stylish, with designs focused on durability and comfort. Fox Pants are double-layered at the knees for extra padding should you hit the ground to avoid tears. You could say Fox shorts are just right; neither tight nor loose, made of forgiving quick-drying material that is as at home on the bike as it is off. Fox Ranger Shorts give you the choice of an integrated, removable liner or without—where you can supply the liner or not. Fox Jerseys are designed to be light, slim enough to fit under hydration packs, loose enough to go over armor.
Fox body armor is made to cover torsos, elbows, forearms, hips, knees, and shins. Their offerings range from guards light enough to use on trail rides to protective armor built for downhill racing. Fox body armor has a fit that has been refined over years of testing and abuse. Fox Racing's premium offerings feature D30 padding, which is light, low-profile, and soft—at least until impact when it stiffens to protect body parts underneath. Whether you just need knee guards, your entire lower leg protected, or just your elbow, there are choices within the Fox lineup to match your needs. On the glove front, Fox generally sticks to light, durable hand covers that are flexible and make holding the bars easier.
Fox gear extends from casual wear to racing jerseys and pants. Their off-bike apparel covers from head to toe. Designed by cyclists, for cyclists, the threads reflect the moto aesthetic Fox Racing embraces. Their gear, including their practical, moto-inspired Mud Guard, and logo-bestrewn Water Bottle, are great on the bike. Their Enduro Strap, a way to secure bike gear to your frame, is a must-have.
