Great Rack
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is easily my favorite bike rack to use on my car, I have two of them in addition to a Thule Paceline between them. Switching the orientation to fit the driver's side of the car (comes oriented for passenger's side) takes a little while, but is not very difficult to do if you have a screwdriver. Some people complain about the front wheel wobbling when driving, I have never had this issue, but this is probably because I use additional straps to hold down the front wheels.

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.

I've worn this on every ride that I take my full-face helmet ride since I've gotten it. Once the brace is on, I hardly ever notice it while riding?it's actually quite comfortable when it's on. I am yet to be able to attest the brace's ability to prevent injury in the case of a bad crash (thank god), but I definitely feel much safer wearing this. It's very sturdy, and just by pushing down on it you can feel how well it disperses the force, which would usually go directly into your neck, across other parts of the body.

I bought this helmet after suffering a concussion from a less-protective helmet. Luckily I haven't had any hard falls yet with this helmet, but with the MIPS system I know I will be protected. The helmet is very comfortable and the chin stay in much more comfortable on my jaw than any other helmet I have used.
