Hey, everyone! I’m still making blog entries on the Fox Racing Motocross Gear and I’ve been looking forward to this one a fair bit. It’s not often that I see a whole range of Motocross armour in the same brand and offers a good selection of varied defense options for MX riders. But that’s why I like Fox Racing. There’s a whole range to choose from and they all offer different levels of protection with their own benefits and drawbacks. So choosing a Motocross gear loadout becomes a balance and an art that depends on your personal way of riding and what your needs are. So allow me to introduce you to some of the Fox Racing range of chest and body protection.
First up is the Fox Racing Titan Sport Armoured Jacket. I’m starting right away with one of my favourite choices if I were to pick any of these armours for myself. The Titan Sport Armoured Jacket is already a popular choice because it has chest, back, shoulder and elbow armour all in one. It’s light and it’s all attached to a breathable material to keep the rider from overheating. Its a great all-rounder set of armour that’s as easy as slipping on a jacket without adding a load of bulk. It’s even CE certified, so you know it’s safe stuff, at £119.99 it’s a very popular choice.
Next is the Fox Racing Proframe LC Chest Protector. A bit more conservative on the armour side of things and doesn’t have quite as much as armour coverage as the Titan Sport Armoured Jacket. But the armour the Proframe LC Chest Protector does have is tough and a bit more substantial that that of the Titan. A more solid protector defends the chest, spine and ribs. It’s also compatible with neck braces so you can maximise your protection around your neck. It’s easy to use, featuring a simple buckle system and is also CE rated. It’s a brilliant, low profile alternative that protects the core areas for just £114.99.
Third we have the Fox Racing Raptor Vest Chest Protector. You’ve probably already noticed that it’s an upgraded version of the Proframe LC chest Protector. It features the same tough armour around the chest and back but the armour around the ribs is a bit more beefy and it also features some shoulder protection. Like it’s little brother, the Raptor Vest Chest Protector is CE certified and compatible with neck braces giving you the option of increased safety for just £174.99
This last item is my favourite of the lot. Purely because it looks absolutely bullet proof. It looks like you could crash into a tree in this and come out feeling sorry for the tree. The Fox Airframe Pro Armoured Jacket means business. Naturally it’s heavier than the other selections of armour but the Airframe Pro offers unparalleled protection in the chest, ribs and spine. It’s CE certified, has moulded EVA foam, is compatible with neck braces and the shoulder armour is even removable. The only thing that will arguably keep your main body safer than this is actual bullet proof plating but that’s no good for motocross and weighs a ton. So get yourself an Airframe Pro for £249.99 instead.
And those are a some of the choices you have in motocross body armour from Fox Racing. There are naturally a load more options if we include elbow and knee armour or if you include other brands. So if none of these catch your eye, you can always have a look around in our store to see what we have, you’re sure to find something or a selection of things that’ll meet your Motocross protection requirements.
Thanks for reading, everybody. Until next time!
