Fox Flux helmet 2013
IMO the ventilation is OK, but there’s a big absorbent sponge at the front of the Flux which collects sweat (then dribbles it down your forehead). It’s also not especially lightweight if that’s a concern.
But overall it’s my favourite helmet I’ve had so far. (this is for the original Flux, not a new one if they’ve changed).Posted 4 years agoGolfChickMember
always ridden a giro hex but it got broken from a crash and although i now ride with a semi full facer i time to time ride with my OHs fox helmet and really love the fit of it. Seems a lot more coverage and really nice and col with a nice air pocket at the front which is excellent for ventilation.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I went from a Hex to a Flux, the fit’s quite similiar.
I really liked my Flux, but kind of despite itself… They’re massive, and not light, and the strap mechanism isn’t brilliant. And the damn fool spoiler, grr (it does come off)
But- it was comfy, cool, had excellent coverage, and sat so well on my head- it’s a cliche but it went round my head not on it, the HEx was always “on top”. So stable with a light, too. So miles from perfect but the good stuff was so good I don’t care.
Fox’s Striker is also excellent- a bit more XC, it weighs miles less, fits similiarly, and is a wee bit cooler but does have slightly less protection at the back of the skull (it’s still better than a Hex for that, mind, but it’s not as burly as the Flux) And just generally better executed- smaller, better straps, etc.Posted 4 years ago
