Keepin’ your noggin’ safe should be a no brainer anytime you ride a mountain bike, and with the futuristic material technologies that comprise modern skid lids, you stand greater chances than ever of walking away from a gnarly header free from head injury.

MIPS versions of the Flux feature the added liner that absorbs multi-directional impacts, a breakthrough in helmet technology that allows the lid to react appropriately to both linear and rotational forces, as well as Fidlock Snap magnetic buckle closure for quick and easy strapping. Fox employs additional tech to the liner producing it from a bacteria inhibiting material to keep the padding stink free. Fresh.
