For 2018, the Fox Racing V3 helmet incorporates MVRS, or the Magnetic Visor Retention System. In addition to the internal MIPS liner which helps reduce the chances of suffering a rotational brain injury in the event of a crash, the MVRS does the same externally. In the event of a crash, the visor will disconnect from the helmet when it comes into contact with the ground, eliminating the chance of the peak acting as a lever, which can snag the ground and twist your head. Race tested by Chad Reed, Ryan Dungey and Ken Roczen, the visor has been fine-tuned and cannot be knocked free by roost alone. Check out the theory and science behind the visor – as well as some of the new 2018 Fox Racing riding apparel – with Fox Racing’s Communications Director Mark Finley.
