FOX Racing Introduces the Dropframe Helmet

We first broke the news about this new helmet from FOX about one month ago, but we've now had word that the Dropframe is officially available so we thought we should come back and provide a little bit more information. As we previously pointed out, the Dropframe looks like it is heavily based on the design of the excellent Proframe, so chances are good it will be very light and breathe exceptionally well. The look is sure to leave no one opinionless, we suspect this will be a clear case of love or hate. What do you think?

From FOX:

Dropframe redefines what an open face mountain bike helmet can be. Superlight and extremely breathable, it's the choice for trail riders seeking more coverage, more confidence, and more fun.

The design of the Dropframe was inspired by the groundbreaking Proframe full face trail helmet. The same demand for additional coverage in a modern trail helmet which drove that revolutionary design was the impetus behind this new model. It’s the perfect helmet for riders of all levels looking for more coverage, more confidence and more fun on the trail. - Chris Blum, Fox MTB Category Manager

This game-changing open faced enduro/trail helmet features the dual-density Varizorb™ EPS liner and our proprietary M.O.RE. (Mandibular Occipital Reinforcement) Guard design. M.O.RE. provides more coverage for the ears, jaw, and back of the head. This combination provides the most complete coverage we offer in an open face helmet.
