Fox Racing V1 Helmet Review

Fox Racing V1 Empire Helmet
For the entry-level MX rider, the weekend dirtbike warrior and basically anyone who is enthusiastic about the sport of motocross but doesn't need all the over-the-top features of a pro lid, the Fox Racing V1 Helmet is a great choice. Loaded with many of the signature features that have been native to the Fox Racing line of helmets for years, the V1 excels in performance, safety and airflow properties. As with all dirt lids, you'll see new graphics of this helmet with every season and they'll always be made in conjunction with new jerseys and pants. The best match for the V1 Helmet is the Fox HC Jersey, Fox 180 Pants and Fox Racing Comp 5 Boots.

Fox Racing V1 Matte Helmet
The Fox V1 is an injection molded polycarbonate shell with a multi-density EPS liner for resistance to impact and significant shock absorption. It meets both Snell and DOT certifications, so you know it meets the most stringent safety standards out there. You'll see some signature Fox features right out of the gate, with their unique roost guard and chin vent construction in addition to the shell shape. The sides of the helmet are flatter than most dirt lids which effectively contours this helmet with the natural shape of the chin, offering a more streamlined look and eliminating that cue ball effect. What you've got is an aerodynamic helmet that will perform exceptionally on weekend dirt rides.

Fox Racing V1 Rockstar Helmet
There are multiple intake vents at the front of this helmet including at the chin area and at the brow, with two additional chimney intake vents. These rush air through the dual venting channels that are chiseled into the EPS liner and are sucked out by passive venturi exhaust vents at the rear of the helmet. The visor on the V1 is completely adjustable via an aluminum screw that sits underneath and is easily operable with gloves on. The comfort liner and cheek pads are completely removable and washable, so when they get funky, they're easy to restore back to new condition. At the sub-$200 price point, bottom line, it's going to be tough to find another dirt lid that matches the features and functionality of the Fox Racing V1 Helmet.
