Mar 4, 2015
by Fox Head  


For over two decades Fox bike has been defined by Downhill. The riding, the style, the unmistakable attitude – It’s who we are and what we stand for and it’s what sets us apart from the competition. For 2015 we continue to push the boundaries with our World Cup Championship proven DH collection. The improved fit, performance and legendary Fox graphics are race ready and will keep you focused on the descent. Whether you are ripping your local hill or pushing for a podium the Fox Spring 2015 collection has what you need to get the most out of your ride.

Fox 2015 DH Range
  The Rampage Pro Carbon Helmet.

For 2 years straight, Steve Smith and Josh Bryceland raced against the world’s best wearing the Fox Rampage Pro Carbon, taking back-to-back Downhill WC Championships.

Fox 2015 DH Range
  The Rampage Pro Carbon helmet is the pinnacle of mountain bike performance products. Pulling from our 40 year history of design and engineering excellence we added Bike specific functionality, the result is a lightweight and extremely protective helmet that continues to show up on Podiums season after season.

The helmet comes with FOX: MIPS, a low friction layer between the helmet and the head that imitates the brain’s protective fluid by rotating and reducing the rotational forces upon an angled impact. MIPS is now a standard feature in all 2015 Fox Rampage Pro Carbon helmets.

 it must be hard for Connor fearon to see "Danny Hart" written on his bar
  • 5 1
 Fearons riding a precept to get comfortable on 27.5 wheels. And to experiment with geometry for the new 27.5 operator. witch i imagine will feature more aggresive angles and length. It will be cool to see fearon finally on the bigger wheels, cause if the data is true he was loosing about 2 - 4 seconds last year compared to the rest of the field.And i'm actually suprised it took kona this long to move to the bigger wheels. I mean wheel size isnt everything, but in a pro field where theirs often multiple guys seperated by less than a second, an average 2 - 4 second loss in time can hurt you.
  • 2 0
 Yeah, I feel bad for them launching the new operator right before everyone went over to 650b. I'd imagine they are small enough that it takes some time to come up with a new design.
  • 5 1
 Fox's demo pants are fantastic, but they f*cked the sizing of them last year, vs the year before.

Hope they went back to "normal " of a couple years ago.

 Thought this was just me. My 34 waisted shorts feel like 30's.
  • 8 0
 glad you both said that, I thought I was getting fat
  • 3 0
 Not just you guys. I'm a 34 in everything... which usually sits fairly loose. In the 2014 34s you could see my bell end squashed up. I exchanged for a size 36, then the legs were far too baggy Frown
  • 1 0
 My Troy Lee shorts are the same, I got 34's and they feel like 30's too.
  • 2 0
 TLD have gotten much better in recent years with their sizing consistency.
At one point I owned 3 different coloured Moto shorts, one was baggy, one fit perfect and the other one super tight :p

It's the reason I eventually swapped to Fox... but now tides seem to have turned.

 The fox stuff gave me camel toe. But that was the last time i tried it on...TLD moto is my 4 season benchmark short. Anyone found better?
  • 1 0
 The TLD sprint, moto and ruckus is brilliant and is better than the Fox now by far, which is a shame.

 Glad it isn't just me either! 34" 2013 fits perfect.... 2014 NOPE.

 Bomber Gloves are the best I've worn yet, pardon the pun but they really do fit like a glove, for me anyways. If concidering a new set of gloves do not overlook these. Buy them as tight but equally comfortable as possible, and you won't be disappoiinted. My control at the cockpit was noticably amplified on my first ride, and I miss these gloves anytime I ride with anything else. I'm now thinking of buying another set of fox gloves for AM and might consider the Unibomber, kind of a creepy name though.
  • 5 1
 Mine are great but I find with all the Fox gloves the plastic on the wrist closure always comes unbonded from the cloth/velcro.
  • 2 1
 Full on agree, I've had the same experience aswell, it would help if they beefed that section up just a bit.
  • 3 7
flag Zimmer68 (Mar 4, 2015 at 12:19) (Below Threshold)
 Come on dude, the unibomber was just a misunderstood guy who wanted to do his own thing. Aren't we all unibombers in our own way?

 get a little warm in the summer though. and they hold up EVERYWHERE except the finger tips. i love mine, had to decommission them because they became finger less gloves
  • 1 0
 Agreed that they rock accept the velcro. I love the bomber gloves. They fit well and perform well. Hand smacked a tree without issue. Fox, please read this. Reinforce the velcro connection to the strap, possibly with extra stitching. I will pay the extra few dollars at it will save time every time I take them on and off as I won't have to do it slowly to prevent the two from separating.

 I have two pairs of the Launch knee pads. I retired the first set but brought them back into rotation because even though there pushing 4+ years old they still do their job. Don't put them in the washer or dryer though because they will get stretched and beat in there.
I have two pairs of attack gloves but both have blown seams, I don't where gloves much any more because I loose one, they wear out, or don't fit.
  • 1 0
 I won't buy most Fox jerseys because the font size of the word FOX is ginormous. Their Fox Head logo is cool, but that giant FOX in basic block lettering just looks like it was designed by a 14 year old. Their logo is so recognizable, they do not need the huge block lettering. I did just get a pair of Ranger shorts. After dissin' Fox Head for poor sizing and durability issues, these fit great - true to size (34), good chamois liner, comfortable and hopefully more durable (I have fallen twice with no rips).

Video felt like an afterthought. ...meh...

 what s cool with fox pants is that you can be SURE to be disapointed with the legg's length.... never long enough untill the shoe and you look like a joey

 Are you refering to fox mx pants in general Or the actual Mtb pants? Mx pants are shorter usualy as mx riders use boots.

 I prefer the shape of the D3 personally, but some of the new designs TLD have bought out this year are horrific. If you look up photos of other angles quite a few of them have leopard print across the top of them! No I'm not kidding. Thank God I bought one of last years' models fairly recently!

 He was at Antur Stiniog (one of the DH centres here in the UK) on the 7th Feb riding - I was lucky enough to be on the same uplift van with him. He did finish up early afternoon though - his ankle had started to hurt again.

 Thats the kinda injury that will be sore for sometime after its healed structurally. I'm sure he'll be fine for race season though, heres a few update clips:
