The Fox V4 Helmet is a new, off-road helmet made with Pro standards that rival high end Shoei and Arai helmets in terms of its quality. When designing the V4, Fox’s goal was to make a helmet that could not only outperform all other premium dirt helmets, but also be able to go head to head with some of the best helmets on the market.
The Fox V4 has a completely different layout than that of its predecessor the V3. First, the shell of the V4 is constructed completely out of carbon fiber. Carbon fiber helmets are some of the lightest on the market, while still meeting or even exceeding necessary safety standards. The V3 was made with fiber glass and carbon fiber, making the V4 notably lighter than the V3 without sacrificing protection. One of the benefits of carbon fiber is its ability to absorb forces of impact better than most other helmet materials; and the fiber weave design of the V4 makes it less likely for objects to be able to penetrate the shell. The V4 has a dual density EPS liner with a dense exterior and a soft interior; providing even better impact protection. The shell of the V4 comes in four different sizes, adding two more sizes than the V3.
Another note- worthy feature about the Fox V-4 helmet is its extensive ventilation system. With 16 intake vents and eight exhaust ports, this Fox Helmet has one of the most impressive ventilation systems for a dirt helmet. Both the intake and exhaust ports are screened off to allow cool air to flow into the helmet while also keeping out unwanted material and debris, like mud. Due to the amount of vents, air circulates through the helmet even at low speeds. Four large brow vents push air directly onto the brow line; reducing fogging on goggles. To help keep your goggles in place, there are grips on the side of the eye port, as well as a ridge on the rear of the helmet to keep the strap secure. The V4 has a removable, single mouth guard with an integrated roost guard.
The interior of the V4 is fully removable and lined with a moisture wicking DryLex Comfort Liner. The liner has a 3D design with several cut aways throughout to provide the most amount of direct venting to the head. The DryLex is made from a very soft material for extra comfort against your skin, and is antibacterial to keep your helmet fresh longer. The cheek pads are contoured to create a secure fit; and they are also interchangeable.
The Fox V-4 has been designed with the quality and features that the pros look for. Ryan Dungey, Chad Reed, and Ken Roczen are only a few of the professional riders who have worn the Fox V-4 helmet; so if you’re looking for a premium off-road helmet that has been tested and approved by pro riders, the V4 is the helmet for you. The Fox V4 comes in three different styles: The Fox V4 Rockstar, Fox V4 Flight, and Fox V4 Future.
