The Fox And The Grapes

Fox Racing's entry into the premium helmet category is their V3 product line. Let's see how the V3 Fox helmet stacks up agains it's competitors.


Protection
As with most high end motocross helmets, the V3 fox helmet exceeds Snell and DOT standards. This does not guarantee any level of safety, but it is extra piece of mind for the wearer.


Weight
Weighing in at under 3 pounds, the V3 fox helmet is lighter than most of it's competitors. This will be especially appreciated on those longer rides when fatigue sets in.


Comfort
The V3 fox helmet is one of the coolest and most comfortable helmets available. It has 13 vents and 5 airflow channels. This helmet is the most comfortable helmet that I personally have ever owned. Fox Racing has clearly done their homework in this area.


Pricing
Priced at just under $400, this helmet is at the high end of the range. If you shop around, you can usually find a good deal on a Fox helmet. A few merchants even offer a low price guarantee so that you don't have to spend all your time shopping around.


Details
The included lined helmet bag is very nice. It is of higher quality than most of the competitors bags. An extra visor is also thrown in. The V3 Fox Racing helmet D-rings are made of titanium. That probably doesn't save you much weight, but it sure sounds good.


Finishing
There are plenty of color options to choose from for your V3 Fox helmet. Current offerings include the Montage, White Wall, and several color options for the "Race" design.


Conclusion
The V3 Fox helmet is a high quality product. It doesn't blow away the competition, but it is near the top of every category and hands down the most comfortable helmet on the market. In terms of value for your money, you can go wrong with the V3.
