Fox Racing Mainframe Helmet

Fox have taken advancements and developments from their popular Speedframe helmet to offer an impressive array of features to the Mainframe. Constructed from Fox’s in-mould EPS design, the Mainframe sees a shock-absorbing inner EPS foam covered by a tough polycarbonate outer. Should you crash, the EPS foam soaks up and dissipates the damaging forces of the impact with a tough outer shell to fend off tree branches and small knocks.

The Fox Mainframe helmet also features a removable, washable, and moisture-wicking liner that is adapted to keep your head cool, dry and comfortable. Combine these features with the large vents on the helmet which provide a constant stream of air to flow around the helmet providing efficient cooling on long rides.

  • MIPS impact protection reducing rotational forces
  • EPS foam to dissipate damaging forces
  • MIPS integrated fit system for a comfortable and seamless fit
  • Extended rear coverage for added safety
  • Removable, washable, moisture-wicking liner
  • Weight: 390g (Size M)
