FOX MTB Helmets

The Speedframe Pro MIPS helmet is the ultimate mountain bike helmet for all types of riders - from beginners to the most advanced bikers. These open-faced Fox helmets are performance-focused helmets with MIPS technology and Dual-density Varizorb EPS that works to reduce rotational motion on the head at impact and redirect the forces to a wider area.
The Speedframe helmet has a great ventilation system that keeps you cool even during the most high-intensitive rides. And the antimicrobial XT2 liner helps to soak up sweat and keep it away from your eyes when riding so you can hit the trail as hard as you want with confidence.
You can pair the bicycle helmet with your favourite riding goggles, thanks to the adjustable visor. In addition, Fox has included a Fidlock SNAP buckle and 360-degree fit system for an all-day comfortable fit. And the buckle is super easy to manage even when wearing gloves!
It is the perfect performance-focused trail helmet!
FOX has released an improved version of their industry-leading performance knee pads - the FOX Launch Pro D30 Knee Guards. These knee guards are built with D30 insert technology which is the thinnest and most innovative protection material on the market.

Not only that, but the MTB knee pads are super breathable with a moisture-wicking back panel and all around breathable neoprene fabric that makes every ride comfortable and fun! It also has a detachable hard cover for extra protection and durability.
These MTB knee guards are perfect for any riding conditions, staying agile on the uphill climbs and amazing impact protection on the downhill.
