Fox Racing Motorcycle Helmets
Fox Racing motorcycle helmets are designed to protect riders taking part in motocross racing. These helmets feature advanced technology and design to ensure that your head is well protected from falls and debris encountered around the track or when participating in competitive trail riding.What are the differences in the shapes of racing helmets?
Offering different shapes of racing helmets ensures the proper fit for your head. Fox Racing helmets are available in three different shape options.
- Round oval-shaped helmets fit heads which have similar measurements from side to side as they do front to back.
- Intermediate oval-shaped helmets are more common. These helmets are designed for heads which are minimally longer from front to back than from side to side.
- Long oval-shaped helmets are designed for heads that are significantly longer from front to back than from side to side.
Ensuring that a helmet fits properly impacts the level of safety that you have while riding any type of motorcycle. Following these steps will help in determining which size helmet you need for motocross racing. Using a tailor's measuring tape, wrap the measuring tape around the head at the fullest point. Ensure that the measuring tape meets at the front of the forehead for accurate readings. If trying to determine your own helmet size, ask someone else to get the reading for you. Using the measurement that is taken, select a helmet according to the following Fox Motocross Racing Helmet sizing chart.
