Fox Dropframe Helmet Test Review

Fox recently released their new maximum coverage open-face Mountain Bike trail helmet, the Dropframe. On receiving ours we headed straight to the trails to put it to the test and give you our take on Fox’s latest addition.

Dustin Rudman, local Fox ambassador/ MTB public figure/ DRI head-honcho, joined us on the ride rigged out with his new Dropframe. First impressions were how good the helmet looks in person along with how light it actually is!

A concern when first laying eyes on this release was the “ear hole or frame” section of the helmet and why Fox didn’t include some type of covering or mesh in that area – but realistically it’s not bad and something you get used to very quickly.

The Dropframe is literally the most comfortable helmet we’ve ever worn! It’s super light, extremely breathable and feels as if you’re not even wearing a helmet. Definitely a first prize choice for riders looking for more coverage and protection, which equals more confidence and more fun.

Review on the new Fox Dropframe Mountain Bike Helmet

Pros:

-Super comfortable and light-weight.
-Looks and feels better in person.
-Goggles and glasses fit well with the helmet.
-Mandibular Occipital REinforcement Guard, aka M.O.RE. Guard. Provides maximum coverage for the ear, jaw and back of the head.
-Dual-density Varizorb EPS liner. Offers improved protection by spreading forces of impact across a wider area.

-Comes with a custom fit kit – two thickness of pads to customise fit.

Cons:

-Appearance could be an issue for some – you either like it or you don’t.
