Helmets are notoriously difficult to get right and it can be a costly quest to find the lid that perfectly fits your dome, offering adequate protection and of course, sleek style. What’s more annoying is that the diversity of mountain biking often requires a different helmet for different types of riding, wouldn’t it be great if there was an all-in-one option?
Unlike road and commuting, wearing a helmet for off-road adventures is a given and a minimum requirement at most trail centres. The thought of wearing a bicycle helmet often comes with some horrific cringe-worthy flashback to a childhood full of bobble heads as your mushroom cap lid swallowed your head whole.
Fear not, intrepid rider because helmets have come a long way since then. There’s more protection, an improved fit and not to mention, badass styles. One helmet to ‘rule them all’ is the new Fox Proframe full-face and after world-wide marketing hype, we tested to see if it was all it cracked up to be.
