When Fox Racing first introduced the Flux Helmet, it was one of the few trail-specific helmets available. This year—its 10th birthday—the Flux is joined by plenty of formidable competition, but it still holds its own as a lightweight, affordable player in the trail market. The 2016 version now boasts an all-new dial-actuated retention system for an even more customizable fit.
The most notable feature of the Flux is probably its extensive rear coverage, which provides valuable protection to the vulnerable areas on the back and sides of the head. The Flux's lightweight EPS foam protection stays the same from past years, with Fox adding 17 strategically-shaped vents to usher air in and out of the helmet to keep you cool-headed on the trails or during park sessions.

- In-mold shell better absorbs and dissipates impact
