Sea Otter Day 1

Sea Otter is alive, healthy, and kicking. The pandemic has put a delay on things in the bike industry and Sea Otter was no exception in 2020. Exhibitors and bike fans alike were glad to be able to reconnect as humans often do. There were certainly fewer vendors but the energy was high enough to make that seem trivial and pedantic.

FOX Racing has launched a number of products this year, including the all-new Rampage Pro Carbon that the overall 2021 World Cup winner Super Loic Bruini donnes as his protective helmet.

New at Sea Otter however from Fox Racing is their Mainframe. It’s a lower-cost entry MIPS equipped helmet starting at $79/$89 but delivers on protection as it has received a 5star rating from the Virgina Tech team.

The Mainframe was awarded Virginia Tech’s best safety rating of 5 stars, designed with MIPS’s proven impact protection system that reduces rotational forces in a crash by absorbing and redirecting energies and forces otherwise transmitted to the brain.

There are a few cost-saving measures done on the helmet like a no adjustment visor, a standard buckle, and some material differences compared to their premium offerings in the Speedframe.
