Shopping for new gear can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve created ‘Gear in Motion’, a blog about our favorite products. Today we’re taking a look at the Fox Racing Rampage Comp Helmets.
Why we like them:
When you’re mountain biking, lightweight design is a top priority. The Rampage Comp is designed for downhill action, with a full-face motocross-design helmet and a fiberglass shell.
Some reasons why this helmet is a good buy:
If you don’t like extra maintenance.
The Rampage helmet comes with a detachable liner, meaning it can easily be washed.
The Rampage helmets are very affordable for the lightweight protection they offer, which is modeled after Fox’s Pro brand helmets.
The Rampage Comp uses the five-star rated MIPS technology (you can learn more about Multi-Directional Impact Protection System here https://www.evo.com/guides/mips-helmet-technology). MIPS is not only used in the biking industry and helmets using this technology can be found in Skiing, Snowboarding, Motocross as well as other sports helmets.
What’s in the box?
Many colors come with a carrying case, which doesn’t exactly guarantee ultimate protection for the cosmetics of your helmet, but still looks great and makes for a handy tote tool.
Things to Consider:
We’ve noted that various reviews that point out these helmets may be constrictive on the cheek area. This is definitely a factor to consider, but overall reports have instead described it as a comfortable fit. It may also help to mention here that the helmet comes with soft cheek pads. Remember, we have a large assortment of helmets in different sizes to fit your needs. We recommend choosing a helmet that fits you perfectly. Our helmet sanitizing station will allow you to try multiple helmets on until you find the right fit for you.
This is a solid helmet that protects without bogging down your ride. The sleek design is also not too hard on the eyes. Overall, we’re all big fans of this helmet and would recommend it to any downhill or enduro riders.
