Product Description

The Fox Racing Striker Helmet falls neatly between XC racing helmets and more freeride-oriented lids to cover that gray world in-between often (confusingly) referred to as all-mountain. Ample back-of-the-head coverage prevents blindness resulting from a crash, and multiple huge vents on top keep you from burning up.

Strengths:    Best fitting helmet I have owned. High quality materials and workmanship. I like the extended rear protection - I am getting wiser with age and will gladly carry 50 more grams on my head to same a brain injury

Weaknesses:    Visor is not very long. In AZ it is nice to have more shade over the eyes.

Bottom Line:   
Solid helmit with good features, design and fit(at least for my head) at a decent, but not cheap price.

Strengths:    Airflow, weight, comfort & extra padding included.
Huge vents make riding in 85+ degree temps more comfortable then I thought would have been possible and the airflow through the lid is amazing even at slower speeds. This is a very comfortable lid once the adjustments are dialed in. Extra padding is included in the package.


Weaknesses:    Rear adjustment, visor does not lock into any other positions.
The rear adjustment for the helmet is a slide tab on either side, I prefer the center hub adjustment like that of a hard hat suspension. Not a huge deal. Also the visor only has one position which it "locks" into.


Bottom Line:   
This is a very light and comfortable helmet with good looks to boot. The airflow is great at even slow speeds, I haven't noticed any "whine or whistle" at speeds up to 40 mph. So far I have used this helmet for roughly 100 miles on both firetower road runs and some light singletrack and I'm pleased with the purchase. It offers slighty more protection to the back of my head than my GFs Bontrager and my riding friends Giro and Bell Helmets.

Sidi Dominator and Northwave Striker sizing

Now I know how they compare.. I have pretty wide feet and my old broken in Dominator 3's in size 43 (normal width) had a glove like fit and were very comfortable after years of service. The only thing was the toe room. My big toe was pretty much at the end of the shoe with hardly any room to slide f ... Read More »

Fox FLux vs Striker

I am in the market for a helmet. I tried on the Flux and it was really comfortable and it fit the best, so far, but I haven't found the Striker to compare the two. Does the Striker fit the same as the Flux or is it different?Read More »

Fit? Giro xar vs fox striker

For those of you who have tried both, can you give me some insight as to whether they are sized the same. I normally wear a large helmet but tried a medium xar today and it fit just right. No wiggling on my head at all but retention was maxed up. I would prefer a fox striker, do they fit similar? T ... Read More »

Northwave Striker SBS shoes, anyone wearing them?

I'm looking for a new pair of kicks these days. I'm hoping to find a XC race shoe but also has durable enough thread to hold up to epic ride Hike-a-Bikes. What do you think - do these fit the bill? My new Sidi Spider's are totally shredding the soft replaceable threads after a ride or two.Read More »

Anyone Try the Fox Striker Helmet or Giro Xar

Want to get a new helmet that is XC/All mountain-ish - light but does not look like a roadie idiotard helmet. Like that new Striker and Xar. Any recommendations?Read More »
