Inspired by its long heritage as a pioneering motocross brand, Fox Racing continues to push the limits and defy boundaries as it engineers motocross products that combine style and innovation as well as integrate the insights of champion-winning athletes. The result is a consistently superior range of gear and apparel that are developed with the rider in mind.
This season, Fox Racing is more than thrilled to introduce an impressive new addition to its range of motocross gears that will doubtlessly revolutionize motocross performance. Enter the MX19 Collection, Fox Racing’s latest line of motocross gear that 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.
Elevating rider experience with the MX19
To officially unveil its latest offerings and likewise showcase the torch-bearer of the collection which is 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 exhilarating exhibition by Fox Racing’s local ambassadors which include 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 the gears and apparel of Fox Racing’s MX19 Collection. After the talk, an impressive performance by the future of motocross riding in the Philippines which include Josh and Caleb Tamayo as well as Wenson Reyes, capped off the adrenaline-filled 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.
Changing the game with the V1 Helmet
Redesigned from the ground up, Fox Racing’s V1 helmet, which is included in the MX19 collection, has truly set 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 which provides riders 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 the affordability that it offers motocross riders. 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.
