Remember being able to go for a ride without packing a bag full of insulating layers, Gore-tex jackets and waterproof socks? Well believe it or not the magical few weeks we call a Lakeland Summer is creeping up on us again – don’t say we didn’t warn you! We’re starting to get our Spring/Summer stock in both shops, with the first of the lot being the fantastic new range from Fox. Below are just a few highlights from the range, all available at our Ambleside store.

Flexair 2 

The Flexair jersey has been a firm favourite of the Fox range for some time, and this year’s offering is no exception. Available in two colours, this award winning lightweight jersey is renowned for it comfort and breathability. The mesh-panelled zones are a great feature, allowing ventilation where its most needed – ideal for those long summer rides.

Flexair Short

 

Pairing up with the Flexair Jersey are the all new Flexair Shorts. These gravity focussed shorts have been redesigned to offer more comfort without compromising durability. The 4-way stretch fabric used in the short’s construction help to ensure unrestricted movement on the bike, while laser perforated vents keep you cool and comfortable.

Attack Pro

The Attack Pro range has also had a shake up for 2018, starting with the updated Attack Pro Jersey. The new jersey features some cutting edge fabrics to help boost trail performance, including Polartech Delta – a brand new moisture wicking material which actively regulates body temperature. The 4-Way stretch Cordura fabric used in the sleeves is near enough indestructible and will stand up to even the toughest trails. The Attack Pro Shorts feature the same blend of comfort and durability, with the use of stretch fabrics and well thought out ventilation.

Attack Pro Glove

Another stand out product of the 2018 Range is the completely overhauled Attack Glove. This trail specific glove has loads of high tech features to provide unrivalled protection, comfort and durability. Cordura fabric is used once again thanks to it’s incredible resistance to abrasion, with TruFeel fabric used on the inside of the palm to enhance finger sensitivity and improve bar feel. The really neat feature on the Attack Glove is the use of impact cushioning D3O fabric on the knuckles. This allows the glove to remain flexible and comfortable during normal riding, but to stiffen up on impact and protect the top of the hand.

 

Proframe Drafter  

The product that we’re probably most excited about for 2018 is the Fox Proframe. This is the lightest, most breathable full face helmet Fox have ever created, making it ideal for Enduro or trail riding. The Proframe is easily one of the most sought after full face helmets on the market, even out performing the removable chin bar options from Giro and Bell. Supply of these helmets was very limited last season, so we’ve been sure to stock up on them for 2018. Pop down to Ambleside to try one for yourself!

 

There is plenty more kit in the 2018 Fox range that hasn’t been mentioned here, so you’ll have to visit our MTB store to see it all for yourself! We’ll be getting all the 2018 Fox kit up and running on our online shop in the very near future, so don’t worry if Cumbria is too far to travel – you’ll be able to get your 2018 kit delivered straight to your door!
