FOX MX18 | NEW - MAGNETIC VISOR RELEASE SYSTEM (MVRS)

The 2018 Fox V3 helmet replaces screws with the all new, Magnetic Visor Release System (MVRS) designed to resist roost, but release in a crash. MVRS is a completely new approach to managing rotational forces that is strong enough to be there when you need it, smart enough to release when you don’t.

“Current helmet certification testing removes the visor before conducting any impact tests and that was an area we wanted to study. After years of analyzing collected crash data and reviewing real world crash situations, our engineers felt visor technology could evolve. MVRS is the next design approach to the evolution of the modern day motocross helmet.” said Mark Finley, Global Motocross Category Director.

"Throughout the 2017 race season, Fox athletes including Ken Roczen, Ryan Dungey, Tim Gajser, Chad Reed and Evgeny Bobryshev have all been wearing our V3 helmets equipped with MVRS. Unfortunately, Ken Roczen’s season ended in a horrific crash at Anaheim 2. As everyone witnessed during the moment of impact, his visor immediately popped off when his helmet made contact with the dirt. At that precise moment, we saw MVRS do what it was intended for in a true race environment.” said Chris Onstott, Global Sports Marketing Director.
