Fox have just announced a refresh for their flagship new full face helmet, the Rampage Pro Carbon. Read on for more details from Fox:
COMPLETELY REDESIGNED FOR 2019!
The proven performance of the RPC combined with the revolutionary innovation of the Proframe results in a new standard for comfort, airflow and fit in a gravity helmet. Designed with direct input from our elite Downhill and Freeride athletes, this new flagship helmet offers the most complete levels of performance and protection we have ever offered in a helmet.
“Since it’s launch in 2013 the RPC has been one of the best known and most sought after full face helmets in the Mountain Bike world. Worn by some of the world’s best Mountain Bike athletes over the last 6 years it has been podium proven at the highest levels of Downhill, Enduro and Freestyle competition. This redesign has taken inspiration from our ground breaking Proframe helmet – the first DH certified full face trail helmet in the market – and elevated the airflow and performance features to all new levels for Fox.” – Chris Blum: Category Manager, Fox MTB.
The Rampage Pro Carbon is the first helmet with two rotational management systems: Fluid Inside™ and MVRS, delivering the highest level of protection we have ever offered while increasing breathability and reducing weight.
1. FLUID Inside
All new Fluid Inside™ rotational and linear impact management system is intended to help manage the rotational energy transmitted to the rider’s brain in the event of an angled impact and linear energy in the event of a direct impact.
Fox’s exclusive Magnetic Visor Release System (MVRS) is a pro-level patent pending feature that removes the visor screws and replaces them with magnets to allow the visor to release from the helmet in the event of a crash, while also securely staying in place when needed.
Dual density, In-Mold Varizorb™ EPS balances weight and performance and is meant to provide improved protection by spreading forces over a wider surface area
4. INJECTED MOLDED MESH
Injected Mesh vent screens maintain superior ventilation and airflow, while providing protection from dirt and debris.
5. CAGE CHIN BAR / EYEPORT
Patent-pending injection moulded chin bar/eye port CAGE is intended to improve energy absorption in the event of an impact and optimizes airflow to the rider.
MCT (Multi Composite Technology) Shell construction with 3 shell and 4 EPS sizes for best in class fit.
7. X-STATIC LINER®
Removable, washable X-Static® comfort liner and cheek pads that are antimicrobial and manage odour while wicking moisture away from the head.
As proof of the elevated performance levels of the new RPC, the Fox elite MTB team wore the helmet at the kickoff to the 2019 Mountain Bike season – Crankworx Rotorua. Over the six day event Fox athletes wearing the all new RPC appeared on nine podiums including first place performances for Keegan Wright in the Dual Slalom and Brett Rheeder in the first Slopestyle Triple Crown event of the season.
