Equipment

Fox Proframe

In the past there’s always been a trade-off between protection and ventilation when it came to helmets, but the Fox Proframe has just fundamentally shaken things up. At 750 g, this lightweight full-face helmet is not just a lazy compromise of the two extremes and is, in fact, able to masterfully team protection with outstanding ventilation. The distinctive design includes twenty-four large air vents that perform even when riding at a slow pace, and an open chin guard to ensure maximum ventilation when breathing hard. There’s no shortage of confidence to let off the brakes when wearing this comfy helmet: the chin guard is robust, and there’s ample vision in every direction. A fantastic piece of equipment, its performance is further elevated with features like MIPS and a practical Fidlock magnetic closure.

Weight: 750 g | Price: € 270
