FOX Launches the Proframe Helmet

With trail bikes as capable as the DH bikes of yesterday, more and more riders find themselves looking for a helmet that is light and ventilated enough for climbing while offering enough protection for getting rowdy on the way back down, especially when it comes to enduro - the race format or the riding type, whichever definition you subscribe to. We've seen a few convertible helmet options with a removable chin bar pop up lately, but now FOX is getting in the ring with a different take on the issue: a super light, highly ventilated yet fully ASTM DH certified full face helmet. Meet the all-new Proframe.

FOX Proframe Highlights

  • VARIZORB™ - Dual density Varizorb EPS liner provides improved protection by spreading forces of impact across a wider area.
  • MIPS™ PROTECTION - MIPS or "multi-directional impact protection system" reduces rotational forces transmitted to the brain in the event of a crash impact.
  • INTEGRATED CHIN BAR - Fox Impact Absorbing Integrated chinbar is secured to the main helmet structure with a patent pending system and meets ASTM Downhill standards.
  • BIG BORE AIRFLOW - 15 big bore intake vents and 9 exhaust vents make the Proframe one of the lightest and most breathable DH approved helmets.
  • SECURE VISOR - The secure fixed visor is positioned perfectly to ram maximum airflow into the big bore vents.
  • FIDLOCK® BUCKLE - Fidlock SNAP helmet buckle provides quick entry and exit while wearing gloves with maximum security when locked.
  • LINER - Highly breathable liner system is moisture wicking and has anti-microbial properties.
  • MSRP: $249.95 USD

We will put in some trail time with the new lid and bring you our impressions shortly, but in the meantime, it certainly looks as though FOX has come up with an interesting option for aggressive trail riders and enduro racers.

Our downhill DNA sparked the creation of our first ever All Mountain focused full-face helmet. Over 2 years in the development process, the Proframe has been tested and proven by our elite team of Mountain Bike athletes. You’ll see it showcased in our upcoming full-length movie and throughout the year in races all over the world. We are excited to launch such an amazing new product, which brings the iconic Fox attitude and aggressiveness to the world of trail riding. – Mike Redding, MTB Sports Marketing, FOX.
