Fox unveiled an all-new boot for 2018 called the 180. The boots are priced at $250 and are currently offered in red (pictured), white, blue, and black.Photo by Andrew Oldar
The new V3 helmet features a Magnetic Visor Release System (MVRS), which is similar to what was used on Ken Roczen's helmet during Supercross. The system secures the visor to the helmet via the use of magnets as opposed to screws. The magnets are designed to resist roost, but break off in the event of a crash.Photo by Andrew Oldar
The Flexair is Fox's top of the line racewear. The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team debuted the gear on the left at Millville last weekend where Joey Savatgy won the overall in the 250 class.Photo by Andrew Oldar

After spinning laps in the new 360 gear, V3 helmet, and 180 boots, we found that the 360 gear ventilated fairly well in the warm and slightly humid conditions we rode in. The 180 boot is noticeably stiffer out of the box than Fox's flagship Instinct boot, but according to Fox Racing's Mark Finley, the 180 boots require more break-in time than the Instinct. We will be putting plenty of time in these boots to see how they perform once broken in. Thankfully, we didn't get to test the MVRS system on the new V3 helmet, which is designed to release the visor from the helmet in the event of a crash. The visor stayed intact all day and we didn't have any issues with it with it coming loose or moving around.Photo by Ty Cullins
