Fox Striker Helmet

Fox first released the Flux sometime back, and now will introduced a new helmet for XC riding, the Striker.

The Fox Striker helmet features 22 vents (just like the Flux), but uses a aggressive shell to guide wind to your head, and structural honeycomb vents are inserted to cool down.

At the back of the Fox Striker, you can see extra coverage, which they say protects better than other XC helmets on the market. Once again comparing to the Flux, the Striker is lighter (overall weight was not released).

The Fox Striker Helmet will retail for about $138 USD, in sizes XS/S, S/M, L/XL. Colors available will be Black/Charcoal, Black/White, Silver, Black, and White/Black/Red. Releasing between February – March 2011.
