Fox is known for putting out great quality motocross gear that’s built to last. The new V3 RS Wired helmet is no omission to that statement. With such a high-risk form of riding, safety is of the utmost importance; and thank god this helmet brings us another ECE and DOT certifiedoff-road lid to pick from.
The shell has a lot to do with the high safety rating due to the multi-composite tech Fox has been incorporating into their recent helmets. The composite blend features woven carbon fiber and FRP resins to create a very rigid shell sure to keep your noggin safe in the event it takes a bounce off the trail.
MIPSis really cool technology, and more importantly really safe – so it’s awesome to hear that Fox decided to incorporate that into the design. For those who don’t know, MIPS is a liner design that allows for more safety when it comes to rotational blows, rather than direct head-on impacts.
Carbon fiber D-rings, removable cheek pads and liner, easy break-away visor (extra extra safety), and an updated fitment (some owners of the previous model were disappointed in the fit) make this helmet a great option given the safety features and price.
This new lid comes in a total of three colors and has an MSRP of $519.99. Head to your local dealer and try it on, the safety features sell themselves.
