Riders who take on daring freeride and downhill mountain biking will undoubtedly be interested in Fox’s new 2021 Rampage Pro Carbon MIPS which will be worn by elite riders with product support from Fox at the 2021 UCI World Champs in Italy.

The Californian safety and apparel brand’s latest product update applies to its best full-face MTB helmet product – the unambiguously named Rampage series. 

For those riders who demand the best possible protection but don’t want something that runs either too hot, or strains the neck with too many additional grams, the Rampage Pro Carbon has been a choice option for the last few seasons.

Typical of Fox’s Californian roots, the Rampage Pro Carbon helmet is excellently ventilated, making it one of the more comfortable full-face helmets to ride in if it's a sweltering day at the bike park.

Fox’s industrial designers have also ensured the 2021 Rampage Pro Carbon full-face helmet has an industry-standard internal energy dissipation system.

With the yellow Swedish safety company logo now present on the outside of Fox’s premium full-face helmet, riders can expect even better soft-tissue and concussion protection in the case of an angular-terrain impact.

Internal X-Static pads sit over the MIPS layer and provide ergonomic adjustment for riders and their facial features. This delivers that snug fit that keeps the helmet in place on an intense double black diamond downhill track. They are treated with an anti-microbial finish to keep odors at bay but are also removable for washing.

Beyond the internal liner upgrading to MIPS, Fox has retained its dual-density EPS layer construction and abundance of mesh-protected vents, for the Rampage Pro Carbon MIPS.

The visor is also fastened with breakaway bolts, allowing a low shear threshold and reducing neck injuries in the event of an over the bars crash.

Fox is marketing its new Rampage Pro Carbon MIPS in four colors, sure to match your frame and riding kit. Pricing is set at $499.95 and the helmet will be available in S (55cm – 56cm), M (57cm – 58cm), L (59cm – 60cm) and XL (61cm – 62cm) sizes.
