Description

MIPS actually stands for Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, and is a third-party technology that is the result of several biomechanical specialists in Sweden. MIPS takes its cue from the way the brain is cushioned within the skull by a thin, low friction cerebrospinal fluid to allow it to move whenever it suffers any sort of impact. Similarly, the patented MIPS technology provides a low friction layer between the helmet and the head that imitates the brain’s protective fluid by rotating and thereby reducing the rotational forces the brain will experience upon an angled impact. The EPS foam shell then works in concert with the MIPS technology to cushion and protect your head in case of impact.

You may expect to pay a weight price for all this extra protection, but with the Fox Head Rampage Pro Carbon MIPS Helmet, that is not the case at all. Weighing just 1145 grams in a size large, the helmet has a 60K weave carbon fiber laminate that keeps the weight down while increasing its sturdiness. And if you enjoy taking longer alpine downhill runs, your neck and shoulders will thank you for lightening the load up top. The Rampage Pro Carbon has what they call a Luxury Interior. Special attention has been paid to the padding, especially around the cheek areas. The padding works to keep the helmet in place without applying undo pressure. The padding varies in thickness depending on where it is in the helmet. Areas like the forehead and the back of the skull are in line for liberal applications of cushioning, and the fabric that comes into contact with your skin is a Dry-Lex moisture wicking material that will absorb and evaporate any sweat that may collect in the heat of the moment.

You won’t need to worry about overheating since Fox has incorporated an incredible 17 mesh-screened vents in the front and the rear to ensure that the air will circulate and cool your top. If you have had bad experiences in the past overheating with full-face helmets, you’ll be amazed how much improvement the Rampage Pro Carbon offers. No one is claiming that you’ll never sweat while plowing down a beautifully tacky trail, and so Fox has made sure that the Dry-Lex liner elements are detachable and machine washable. The visor is integrated into the helmet and designed to work with the ventilation channels so that it won’t be blocking the air from cooling your head. However, you can easily adjust the placement of the visor if you would like it angled slightly differently. Though designed with the idea of moto helmet-level protection, the Rampage Pro Carbon does not impede your peripheral vision in the way moto helmets can. And it has been developed to work in unison with all goggle sizes.

Setting out to develop the most comfortable, most protective full-face helmet on the market, Fox realized that sizing would be essential. That’s why the Rampage Pro Carbon is available in two shell sizes and three EPS liner sizes.

  • Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS)
  • Carbon laminate shell with EPS impact foam
  • Dri-Lex lining with 3D-molded cheek pads, compression head liner
  • 17 mesh-lined vents along front and rear

Two thumbs up, 5 stars, etc

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Great helmet although I did end up returning it because I do not wear a full face helmet enough to justify the cost so I ended up going with the regular rampage instead of the carbon fiber.

Both are great helmets, if I wore a full face regularly I would likely have stuck with this version but decided to swap it out. Also the MIPS is a nice addition that is comfortable.

Great helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The Rampage carbon is a great helmet. It's comfortable and despite what some people claim the MIPS doesn't add any bulk to the helmet. The weight is reasonable too. Ultimately though, for me, full face helmets are about being as comfortable as possible with good ventilation. It's not super pleasant wearing a full face all day for park riding, shuttle laps, etc. unless it really fits and breathes well. This meets those expectations.

Best helmet I have owned so far

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Quality, technology and styling on this helmet are all top notch. I will write more after I get more than one day of riding on the helmet.
Fit was a little off for me. I measure towards the top end for a large helmet on Fox’s size guide. I bought the large and is was miserably tight on crown and cheeks. I bought the XL and it was snug but comfortable. The XL passed Fox’s fit guide. The return of the L helmet was pretty easy with Backcountry. Printed a shipping label, dropped at the UPS store a few miles from my house. I think I get billed the return shipping but no big deal.

This is my second MIPS helmet (POC was first). I will not buy a new helmet without MIPS. The previous reviewer probably has not spent much time reading about the MIPS system. The research and testing on are quite compelling. Don’t trust me or the other reviewer. Read for yourself www.mipshelmet.com . I personally would rather pay a little more and reduce my risk of brain injury from a crash.

Quality, technology and styling are amazing on this helmet. Worth the money so far. I will post again after I get more than one day riding on the helmet.

On sizing - I measured on the top end for the Large helmet. I bought the large and it was miserably tight on crown and cheaks! Ordered the XL and it is snug but not uncomfortable and passed Fox's sizing test. The exchange with Backcountry was pretty painless. Cost me $6.99 for the return shipping and all i had to do was print a label, box it and drop at a UPS store.

This is the second MIPS helmet I have owned. The previous reviewer only gets it part right. Not only does a MIPS helmet rotate on impact it only does so after a pin or series of pins shear. This dissipates energy from impact after which the shell rotates. The research on this is very compelling. I can say personally that I get more glancing blows in a crash than I get straight on lawn dart type impacts. This type of impact can most certainly lead to brain injury. I have broken the shear pin on my POC helmet in a nasty crash a while back. No injury no issues. There is a lot published info on the web for folks who want to look further. Personally I will not buy another helmet without MIPS.

Super nice helmet, not sure on the MIPS

    This is my first Fox brand helmet and I am very impressed. I started Enduro and DH biking a few years ago and bought a Giro full-face. At the time, I though it was good enough, but the build quality and fit of the Fox is simply in a higher category over Giro. I measured my head per the guidelines at 58.8 cm, ordered a large and got a perfect fit. I didnt realize that the Giro was so loose until I put on the Fox.

    Very breathable and not too heavy (for a full face) I was hoping with the carbon build that it would weigh less, but I honestly think it weighs slightly more than my Giro fiberglass. I did have to research quite a bit for someone to finally share the weight - which I think was around 1,100 grams

    Anyway - I think the MIPS upgrade is over rated. The reason is, the MIPS technology is just a thin layer of plastic between your skull and the interior of the helmet. MIPS simply allows the helmet to slide around to reduce the brunt of a "rolling" hit on your skull. I think in this helmet MIPS is not necessary because the cussion/sweat liner is already free floating from the interior helmet, offering the same "slip" on a rolling hit that MIPS does.

    That's my opinion, but I'm not a head impact scientist - just providing my 2 cents

    I like your take on the helmet. And lol, "just providing my 2 cents".

    Very comfortable, and quite light

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Now, to start, this helmet is light in comparison to other full-face helmets. That being said, it still weighs a couple of pounds, and if you're pedaling with it up the mountain on your back, there can be some noticeable weight.

    With that out of the way, the helmet is extremely comfortable to wear. Some people find the cheek pads a little too tight, but they're quite comfortable as well?they make the helmet feel very secure and safe.

    I also wanted a helmet with the MIPS system after getting?luckily only?a concussion while mountain biking a few months ago. With the system and the high quality of Fox gear, you know you'll be safe in this helmet while tearing up the mountain.

    On a side note, I definitely find myself going faster than I have been before and taking more aggressive and technical lines since buying the helmet. It adds a bit of confidence when you start riding with it.
