Fox Racing Mainframe Helmet (MIPS)
Bringing its A-game to mountain bike protection, the Fox Racing Mainframe Helmet (MIPS) has an impressive array of features that will keep new or experienced bikers protected in the event of a crash.
While you may not have the biggest budget to spend on your mountain bike kit, you shouldn't have to make any compromises when it comes to keeping your head safely protected. After all, mountain biking progress often means taking a tumble on the way. And with the Mainframe Helmet (MIPS) you'll enjoy the latest safety tech at a brilliant price to performance ratio.
The construction is of Fox's in-moulded EPS design. This sees a shock-absorbing inner EPS foam covered by a tough polycarbonate outer. Should you crash, always a possibility when tackling technical trails and riding hard and fast, then the EPS foam soaks up and dissipates the damaging forces of a head impact. The tough outer is there to fend off those smaller knocks and bumps you might get when getting a bit too close to tree branches and trail-side overgrowth.
Next comes the MIPS brain protection system, a brilliant bit of technology to feature at this entry-level price point.
MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System)
The Mips system is designed to provide added safety for helmets in many accidents. For certain impacts, the Mips system can reduce harmful rotational motion that might otherwise be transferred to the users head.
Rotational motion is a common cause of concussions in oblique hits to the head. In a crash, the Mips system is designed to move slightly inside the helmet to help redirect forces away from the head.
Keep the Flow
When you're on the bike and enjoying the ebb and flow of ever twisting and turning trails, the Mainframe ensures you don't overheat. With large vents and carefully optimised inner air channels, you'll always have fresh airflow over your head. So whether it's a stiff climb or fast downhill, you remain comfortable and fresh.
Inside the Mainframe, the moisture-wicking padding does a great job of preventing you from being soaked in sweat as you pick up speed. And they're washable too, so you can always get that new-helmet feel back.
The MIPS integrated fit is the final touch on this impressive MTB helmet. This gives a quick and easy way to get the fit just right. And a secure helmet is a safer helmet too. So twist the dial, get comfortable and go rip up some trails.
