Can 2020 Fox Gear Make You Ride Faster?

Vital MX: This is definitely not a BNG year for Fox Racing. Overall, Fox has made changes to multiple lines of gear, protection, and goggles all with the aim of keeping their offerings at the pinnacle of performance, while actually reducing cost and making products that are more rider friendly. 

In the gear department, Fox has completely redesigned their Flexair and 360 lines. The main difference between the two is, Flexair is all about mobility, where 360 is more focused on durability. The big talking point of the 2020 Flexair line is that it has actually dropped in price - $69.95 for the Jersey and $199.95 for the Pant. On top of that they've made the jersey more ventilated and made the pant lighter weight by changing the waist closure system. 

On the 360 gear, they've actually added tougher material along the outside of the sleeves and the outside of the thighs to increase the durability. The jersey comes in at $59.95 and the pant is $179.95. Fox wants to emphasize that for the more all-around motocross/off-road rider, the 360 is the ideal set of gear, where for the pure track specialist/supercross racer, the Flexair kit is the way to go. 

Another way that Fox is offering value to the rider is by redesigning their medium level helmet, the V2. With the launch of the all-new V3 earlier this year with multiple, never before used safety systems, Fox has utilized those technologies in the new V2. Fluid Inside, Verizorb, magnetic visor, and mega ventilation are some of the features introduced on the V3 that is now included in the V2, at a much nicer $249.95-$269.95 price point. 

Next they've introduced a whole new line of chest and body protectors called the Race Frame. Depending on the level of coverage and CE certification you prefer, Fox offers three different levels of protection, the Roost for $99.95, the Roost Impact (CE) for $149.95, and the Roost Impact Soft Back (CE) for $159.95, which is the same one that Ken Roczen wears. 

In the goggle department, another move Fox made to make things easier for the end user was update the mid and entry level goggles to accept the same lenses as well as fully rigid lenses like the high-end Vue goggle. The Vue is still the top goggle, but the Air Space (with outriggers) and the Main (no outriggers) now have the option of running the standard, flexible lexan lenses or can be up graded to run rigid polycarbonate lenses; a much cheaper option then buy the Vue goggle. 

Overall, the 2020 line of Fox Racing apparel sees many of the premium features on the flagship items trickling down into the rest of their line and, to be honest, making the gear that most of us can afford much safer and better. The following is a press release from Fox and their official launch video.
