Cut to the chase – New Fox Proframe RS Helmet

Feature Your Brand Here

Modern geometry and the evolution of bikes are allowing us to ride a much wider range of terrain from green to double-black trails in a single ride. The dilemma is that we can find ourselves at the top of trails that warrant a full-face helmet, if not a DH bike. Thankfully the Fox Proframe RS Helmet can solve this.

The lightweight full-face helmet sector of the sport has been flourishing since the Giro Switchblade back in the late 90s and the enduro scene has helped evolve this type of helmet into a very popular product. The removable chin bar design although popular has been superseded by a new breed of lightweight single-shell designs.

Fox launched the Proframe, their single-shell lightweight full-face helmet back in 2017 to wide success. It was a real testament to what could be achieved with a lightweight full-face helmet. Fast forward five years and the Fox Proframe RS has landed, and it is one foxy-looking helmet. It shares similar features to the original Proframe but with a few more upgrades that we think have been well worth the wait.

“The RS now has the BOA Fit system to fine-tune the fit. This is a huge improvement for dialling in the perfect fit and we are mystified why it hasn’t been adopted in these types of helmets before now.

Cut To The Chase

The new Fox Proframe RS is at the pinnacle of what lightweight full-face helmets can be. The original Proframe set a benchmark in safety, weight, and breathability but now the new Proframe RS has gone up several notches to increase that benchmark to an impressive height. The Fox Proframe RS features the BOA Fit system and the MIPS Integra Split liner as part of its overhaul and improvements in breathability, safety, and fit. This is a helmet that you can comfortably use all day for long hauls, uphill grinds, and then down into those double black diamond descents with confidence and comfort.
