OUR THOUGHTS:

The V3 Motocross & Off-Road Helmet is the latest offering in protection from Fox Racing. It’s based on the V4 model, which has proven itself to be a solid product. The V3 is a bit more affordable, making it more of a practical option for riders without factory budget or sponsorships.

 

Overall, it’s a light, high-quality off-road helmet that offers a comfortable fit. It utilizes MIPS, which stands for “Multi-Directional Impact Protection System”. MIPS is a liner system that lets lets your head slide away from a hard impact, which is important in reducing rotational injuries

 

It also uses the Magnetic Visor Release System (MVRS). With this in place during a crash, the visor can pop off the motocross helmet and away from the rider. Why is this so important? A traditional visor can catch on the ground and then either bend or break, potentially leading to a facial injury and or rotational neck injuries.  In our opinion, all helmets should be designed with break-away visors, it just makes sense.

 

In terms of how it feels and fits, there are three shell sizes to choose from, allowing a good fit on most noggins. Note that the chin bar struck us as slightly short. This may or may not be something to consider when purchasing the V3 Helmet.  14 intake vents and four exhaust vents keep the air flowing quite well. Venting has come a long way in motocross helmets over the years and the V3 from Fox is no exception.  Additionally, many riders feel that it has a great fit thanks to its Dri Lex comfort liner. Due to its construction and materials, it’s a very lightweight helmet;  a medium only weighs about 1550 grams.
