Fox Racing Striker Helmet $119.95
Building on the successful and much-loved Flux, Fox Racing's Striker takes the half-dome concept a step further by moving into the competition realm. This means a lighter helmet, which was achieved through a slimmer profile and a revised expanded polystyrene shell, as well as two additional vents for better cooling during higher exertions.
This results in a total of 22 vents and a weight that hovers right around 300 grams — about 60 less than the Striker's litter mate, and comfortably below the competitive alternatives. With less weight to counter, your neck will thank you on those extended descents; and if you find yourself on the wrong end of the bars, CPSC safety ratings are there to help you brush it off. To meet this criteria, Fox Racing bonds the EPS liner with an ABS shell through in-mold technology.
The result is a structurally sound, lightweight helmet with solid ventilation, enhanced by large, honeycomb-reinforced rear exhaust ports. To keep the Striker in place, Fox Racing's Detox II retention system comfortably wraps around various shapes for a custom fit, and it can be adjusted on the fly with one hand. The Fox Racing Striker comes in two sizes, S/M and L/XL, and five colors.

IT saved my life!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This helmet saved my life... During a 24h race, past midnight, my wheel slipped beside the lip of the trail, and befor I could even let go of my handlebar, my head was on the ground. I felt the helmet cracking instantly, which is a great thing because it wasn't my skull. The helmet absorbed all the blow and I was A-OK.
Lesson 1: Get a good helmet (Like the Fox Striker)
Lesson 2 (Most important): WEAR IT!!
