Product Spotlight: Fox Proframe MIPS Full Face Helmet

A bike helmet that is getting a ton of buzz this mountain bike and BMX season is the FOX Proframe MIPS full face helmet. It is easy to see why. 

Fox Proframe MIPS Full Face Helmet For Mountain Bike and BMX

One look at the Proframe and you can tell it isn't like many other full face helmets. Its design is unique and extremely wide open. Offering maximum incoming ventilation during use. The wide open face mask, however, does not hamper the Fox Proframe from garnering safety standards as it meets ASTM 1952, otherwise known as the downhill mountain bike standard. 

Aside from massive ventilation, the Proframe is lightweight. It is the lightest helmet at SportsProtective that meets the ASTM 1952 standard. Weighing in at 750g (1.65 lbs), the Proframe is meant to feel airy and weightless for riders. 

Protection is at the forefront for the Proframe, as it features patented MIPS technology. A two layer protection liner, MIPS allows the helmet to rotate with forces to minimilize the negative implications of brain trauma (concussions). MIPS technology is often seen as the most significant safety technology available for mountain bike and BMX helmets. 

Some other features of The Proframe Include: 

  • Polycarbonate outer shell for lightweight protection
  • Varizorb EPS liner that spreads impact over a wider area
  • Maximum airflow provided by 24 Big Bore venting ports
  • Superior protection against rotational forces with MIPS
  • Fidlock Buckle quick but secure lock mechinism
  • Mimimal weight at 750g (1.65 lbs)
  • Meets CPSC 1203, CE EN 1078, and ASTM F-1952 safety standards

Fox Racing put out a promotional video when the Proframe was released: 

 

The Proframe has incredible offerings that most riders are looking for. Excessive ventilation, lightweight build, and MIPS technology are all high on the want list of many mountain bike and BMX riders and the new Proframe delivers all of them at a minimal price of under $250 dollars!
