Fox Proframe MIPS Helmet
The Fox Proframe Helmet was designed from the ground up to be the lightest full-face Fox has ever produced, coming in at 750 grams. Although light on weight, the Proframe is heavy on protection, featuring a Varizorb EPS foam inner shell to provide high shock absorption, along with utilising MIPS technology to further protect the brain from rotational forces. Advanced in-molding allows the shock absorbing inner shell to be securely fused to the robust polycarbonate shell making a helmet that is significantly lighter and better ventilated. Speaking of ventilation, the Proframe comes with twenty-four big bore vents which help channel air through the helmet for maximum cooling!

Lids have come a long way !
by Ian Scott
Light , strong , badass design . Then non adjustable peak is a non issue as it is perfectly positioned to block out glare , allow plenty of ventilation , and sit goggles underneath . Sizing is spot on according to the chart and the helmet comes with accessory pads so you can customise the fit . The numerous large vents make this the lightest and coolest certified helmet on the market . I love mine to death
Light, comfry and looks greats
This helmet is super light and very comfortable. I've taken it for a couple of rides including a gravity enduro race. It has good airflow and the adjustable pads makes for a comfy fit. I got the orange one which looks absolutely fantastic! I'd highly recommend this lid for sure! The gap in the front guard also means it's easy to drink for a hydration pack and the chin strap is magnetic which makes clipping it up a breeze.
Paid for itself after first trip!
by Guy Perrin
Awesome lid. Light, airy and super comfy. I bought this before a trip to Thredbo. Had a face plant on the All mountain trail where this helmet with mips definitely saved me. "Just paid for itself"!
Fox Pro Frame saved me from a substantial head trauma . Had an OTB into a rock slab on the top of my head in a race which resulted in a chopper ride to the Hospital . Core of helmet was cracked through bit no head soreness at all . Main injury was neck related which had nothing to do with the helmet . Im confident the helmet did everything it should. I initially purchased one for my son to minimise the helmet weight on an 11 Yr old , thankfully I purchased one for myself shortly after.
Full face protection with half lid feels
by Leiron P. -
Rad helmet, it is not too heavy to wear and it feels solid.
Comfort and fit: - It is one of the reasons why I bought it. The extra padding that came with it ensures it can accommodate most head/face shape (unless you're a conehead :P). Some people say there's a discomfort around the forehead area and that is true - if you don't wear it properly. I find it is helpful to move your your brows/forehead while you push & scoop the helmet from the backside and find a comfy spot by moving around the tiny space you have.
Airy - the wide vents and fixed visor are strategically designed to circulate the air effectively thru your head - even thru the ears. Looking at it initially got me concerned that it might not be for summer riding. But I am somewhat confident that I can wear this on warmer days coz I can really feel the air from the front going out the rear vents. Srsly.
Overall design - the helmet looks sleek and professional. I love how the whole thing doesn't make you look/feel you are wearing a mascot's head plus it feels secure and attached to your head and does not compromise your field of vision even with a fixed chinbar. My 100% goggles sits perfectly and I don't mind that it can't rest on the forehead area below the visor.
Another super cool thing about it is the fidlock system that makes un/locking the strap easy - even with a glove on.
Amazing helmet - Literal life saver

Crashed hard on Mount Buller at the end of December with what appears to be (no witnesses, no camera, no memory) a full facial impact that actually snapped the jaw piece in half. The jaw stayed together because of the rubber padding. The styrofoam cells on my forehead was basically shattered all the way to the shell. I was stretchered away from that incident without a neck injury or any kind of long term brain injury, in combination with a neck brace and goggles. The worst facial injury I sustained was a bruised cheek on the side that took the hit. For this alone, I have bought a second one of these helmets to replace the wrecked one. In terms of fit, the helmet comes with several different cheek pads and two different neck rolls so that it can be adjusted as required. This range of adjustment was enough to suit my round head as per the size chart, and was still good enough to fit my husband's oval head by going up one size for him. In terms of being able to pedal uphill, it's definitely doable, but I'd only recommend it outside of summer. Once the thermometer breaks the 20*C mark you probably want to grab a half lid. In terms of features, I absolutely love the magnetic clip. It's a breeze to use. The gap over the mouth area is also perfect for a small handlebar style bike light like the Azur 1000lm single beam.
