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. Fox Racing pretty much established the trail style helmet category in 2006, and now 12 years later they have revolutionized the game with their redesigned Flux line of helmets.

Seeing that the Flux is the best selling product of all time for the Fox Head brand, major changes needed to be treaded lightly in reworking the popular brian bucket. Their Varizorb multi-density EPS foam for the bulk of the helmet structure, an interlocking pyramid type build that has superior energy dissipation qualities. 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.
