Why We Like The Proframe Helmet

As the lightest DH lid ever made by Fox, the Proframe comes with the same full-face, fixed visor protection of a classic DH bucket—albeit in a more streamlined design that won't leave you with your head hanging after an all-day ride. Its low weight means that even if you ride more towards the enduro end of the spectrum, you won't sacrifice time in a race for upgrading to DH-level protection. Fox also punches 24 Big Bore vents into the Proframe's shell, making sure you don't feel like you're trying to ride in an astronaut helmet when you're grinding it out on a long, rocky ridge climb before a serpentine descent.

  • Ride with full DH protection without the bulk
  • Dual-density Varizorb EPS broadly distributes impact
  • MIPS inner basket helps disperse rotational energy
  • Fixed visor and chin bar provide protection with airflow
  • 15 intake and 9 exhaust vents keep air moving continuously
  • Fidlock SNAP buckle made to be operated with gloves

Already destroyed!!

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

Only having this helmet for a little over a month I had a devastating crash resulting in 8 broken ribs with a collapsed lung and very large gash on my right leg.

Luckily I was wearing the Fix Proframe when this crash happened. I hit my face and side of my head on multiple boulders and rocks. My visor broke into multiple pieces and the external.plastic surrounding the face opening has multiple indents and scuffs. The foam inside the helmet is cracked/broken dead center of the forehead region. This crash did not result a concussion!!! Approximately traveling 20mph and hitting these rocks/boulders at this speed not resulting in some sort of major head injury is a testament to the build quality, product testing, and the MIPS system.

Thank you FOX for making such a quality product that literally saved my life!

    Custom Painted Fox ProFrame Helmet

      How I custom painted the fox proframe helmet - In terms of a review, the one thing I do NOT like about the helmet is the fixed visor. When you are wearing goggles you cant put the goggles up on the helmet because the visor is fixed and pushed the goggles back down on your face. Most full face helmets will have some adjustment in the visor and this is just annoying to me. Other than that, I love the helmt.

      very comfortable

        This was a birthday gift for my son and he loves it. It's very comfortable and breathable.

        Great for Enduro

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        I've used it for a couple enduro races so far that get pretty hot, and I really appreciate the breathability. Despite the lightweight aspect, I've found it to be secure and protective.

        Dangerous fox helmet break in the middle

        Sounds to me like you are blaming the extent of his injuries on his helmet? Did he have goggles on? Also not sure how a helmet would have saved him from stiches in his mouth?

        How to Mount GoPro to the ProFrame

          This is the BEST mounting process for using your gopro on ANY full face mountain biking helmet, but especially the Fox ProFrame helmet. The chin bar has a perfect flat spot to make the mount super smooth and if you like to record your mountain bike rides for your own archive or to publish online, this creates an excellent field of vision with superview on your gopro and keeps it SUPER stable! The mounting process is really simple - Check it out

          Painting the ProFrame!! haha

            I made a video custom painting the fox proframe with spray paint on my youtube channel. I love all the vents on this helmet to make it breathe better... but all those vents suck masking them all. haha I did this because I didnt like the camo but it was the only color and size left at a big discount.

            The best!!!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            100 recommend to anyone who wants a lightweight yet breathable full face, i live in florida and you can imagine it gets very hot throughout the yeear ( yes even in winter) but this helmet has it all, the durability, lightweightness( if thats even a word) and style . would def recommend, once again backcountry and fox does not let me down, great products!!!


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

            I love this helmet I wear it from local XC rides to downhill parks. Honestly you cant tell that its a full face there is no breathing restrictions like most full face. With all the different pads it comes with I've been able to make it fit my head perfectly. I highly recommend this helmet to anyone wanting more protection without sacrificing comfort.


            Good ventilation and fit

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            Great ventilation. I would say this is a great all around full face. Definitely a good helmet that I've done long climbs in and didn't get too hot. The inside pads could be a little better, some of them don't snap into helmet very well. Overall great helmet, some features could be better quality.


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

            recomend sizing can be fitted to head sizes in each range for a perfect fit

            Saved me in crash

              I was jumping and I hit a decent size gap jump that I had done many times and went OTB straight on the top of my head without getting a chance to put out my hands. Luckily all that happened was the the helmet broke and I was totally fine besides a sore neck. It passed the crash test and did it's job so I would definitely recommend it. It is also great with heat, it keeps you cool and makes you feel sendy.

              The Go Anywhere-Do Anything Helmet

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

              I'd tried this on at a trade show to get a feel for it, but let's be honest here. Aside from fit what questions can you REALLY answer by just trying it on? So I bought it. Suffice to say I was incredibly surprised. I wanted a new brain bucket for when trails in Utah decide to get rowdy, and this thing is great for spontaneous rowdyness. It's incredibly lightweight and breathable. You can see that from the design and the cutouts, but to actually feel the difference while you're pedaling is incredible. Especially when we're used to full face helmets that are the worst thing you could add to your collection on a summer day. The Proframe is unrivaled, and the amount of time I've spent in this helmet because of it's versatility is great. You can pedal uphill without getting heat exhaustion, and trust that you're incredibly safe on the descents!

              Full-Time Full Face Helmet

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

              I have been using a Troy Lee Designs A-1 helmet, and wanted a full-face for those riskier trails. I really feel the Proframe is light enough and cool enough to always use. I am really liking it. My goggles (Oakley Airbrake MX) fit great, but did get a little warm. I figured out how to slide the goggles up, right below the visor, and that gave me the needed air during climbs or stops. The goggles are still in view, when popped up below the visor, but I felt they were out of the way enough when I needed to open up and get some air. They fit well with glasses too.

              Full-Time Full Face Helmet

              Full face that's breezy and works

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

              Had a pretty big crash in this helmet. Cracked the chin bar and 2 places on top of the helmet around my forehead. Had a concussion but was not unconscious. The bad review bc the guy was unconscious isnt very fair in my opinion. It's light enough to use for long climbs in the middle of summer in the south without heating up much more than with a half shell. If you do 100% downhill, hi speed lo drag, don't get a light helmet with vents all over it, you're not pedaling anyway. I'd get a dirt bike helmet for that type of riding. This helmet works very well for what it was designed for.

              Full face that's breezy and works

              Thanks for the awesome feedback, Will!

              Great Recommendation from CC

              • Familiarity: I've used it several times
              • Fit: True to size

              I wanted my own helmet for a 4 day Whistler Bike Park trip and the online chat with CC suggested the Pro-Frame. Besides a great deal, its been a great helmet - good ventilation (some people I know go XC with theres!) and solid protection - got me through Whistler, Downiville and the local bike parks!

              100% goggles are a little small for the opening - makes it tougher to slide the system on/off.

              Great Recommendation from CC

              Look no further

              • Familiarity: I've used it several times

              I wasn’t sure which full face I should get, so of course I asked the pros at backcountry. They recommended this one. It is SUPER light and super comfy, lots of vents. It feels plenty sturdy to me and I feel like unless you are an absolute downhill cliff jumping massive hit psycho it is plenty of protection, especially for the comfort and weight. I would say it pretty much feels true to size, I got a large like I always do and it’s perfect. When I was a kid I smashed my whole face mountain biking and ever since try to wear a full face where it’s realisticaly convenient. I wear it all day on resort days and at other times when other friends simply aren’t comfortable in their full face, so sometimes they are chancing it while I’m poretected. Most of the time I hardly notice I’ve got it on. I would recommend this if you can afford it, also did I mention the vents are amazing for hot days.

              Great Breathable Fullface

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              I have spent quite a bit of time in this helmet, including some long climbs. It's by far the most breathable fullface/enduro helmet that I've ridden. Make no mistake, this helmet was not built to replace your full downhill helmet, but I am more than confident in it's ability to protect me on the more rugged enduro style of riding (feel far more protection than my open face setup). I also noticed a lot of complaints on fit but the helmet feels great on my head.

              Great Breathable Fullface

              Heck yes

              • Familiarity: I've used it several times
              • Fit: True to size

              Super light weight. Using it for downhill in the summer and haven’t had any problems with it being too heavy or hot. The pads inside are pretty thick, and it comes with two sizes so getting a bigger or smaller size would still work if you need to share with someone. Wrecked face first once so far on it and it was fine. No head or facial injuries. So far I’m really digging it!
