Christmas comes early from Fox Racing
This season, Fox Racing introduces a new addition to its range of motocross gear. The collection is nspired by its long heritage as a pioneering motocross brand, with products that combine style and innovation as well as integrate the insights of champion-winning athletes. The MX19 Collection, Fox Racing’s latest line of motocross gear, embodies the brand’s enduring dedication to give riders their best experience yet, no matter the terrain, the environment, and the condition. From revitalized graphics and colors to cutting-edge protective gear and apparel, the MX19 collection is truly made for motocross.
To officially unveil the collection and showcase the torch-bearer, the all-new V1 helmet, an exclusive media launch was held last November 7 at the MX Messiah Fairgrounds in Taytay, Rizal.
Hosted by John Hendrix, the event kicked off with an exhibition by Fox Racing’s local ambassadors: Janelle Saulog, one of the country’s top female riders; top pro rider Ralph Ramento; motorcross legend, Jovie Saulog, and the country’s current top rider, Bornok Mangosong.
After the motocross exhibition, the athletes shared with the guests their firsthand perspective of what it’s like to actually ride and perform in Fox Racing’s MX19 Collection. After the talk, a performance by the future of motocross riding in the Philippines - Josh and Caleb Tamayo, as well as Wenson Reyes - capped off the program. To allow the attendees to truly immerse in the world of motocross racing, the Learn To Ride portion of the event enabled them to learn the basics of motocross and experience riding across the area as guided by a team of motocross riders.
Fox Racing V1 Helmet
Redesigned from the ground up, Fox Racing’s V1 helmet, the pride of the MX19 collection, sets a new standard for value performance. The key feature of the helmet is the Magnetic Visor Release System called “MVRS” which ultimately serves to manage rotational forces. Pro-level and patent-pending, the MVRS removes the three visor screws and replaces them with magnets to enable the visor to be released from the helmet in the event of a crash while ensuring that it stays in place when needed.
Apart from its safety features, it also offers better airflow than its predecessors with improved comfort and moisture management under warm riding conditions. For a more true-to-size fit and feel, the helmet is available in 4 specific shell and EPS sizes and comes with a removable and washable liner, and cheek pads. Boasting of a brand-new aesthetic, it is also available in a wide selection of colors and graphics to match nearly any gear set.
Valued at P11,990, the V1 helmet is also a gamechanger in terms of affordability. . Equipped with the MVRS technology, the V1 helmet provides motocross riders with the same amount of protection and enhanced performativity as other top-of-the line helmets would but at a more competitive price point.
Over four decades since its debut, Fox Racing continues to be driven by the passion to elevate athletic performance through progressive innovation. Though the brand has since expanded to cater to mountain bike, BMX, surf, and wakeboard communities, at the heart of Fox Racing is the brand’s fearless commitment to the spirit of motocross.
The FOX V1 Helmet is available in all Fox stores nationwide. Fox Racing Philippines is distributed by the Primer Group of Companies. Follow Fox Racing on Facebook and Instagram @FoxRacingPhilippines.
