Fox Racing's 2017 Gear Launch Party Photos

We hit Sandy, Oregon to check out the latest motocross gear from Fox Racing.

Last weekend we attended Fox Racing’s 2017 gear launch in Sandy, Oregon. Fox put together and amazing weekend with indoor mountain biking at “The Lumberyard” Friday night, the Washougal outdoor national race on Saturday, and finally getting to spin laps in the 2017 gear at Mountain View MX on Sunday. The new 2017 Fox lineup will be available August 1st at your local dealer. Below are some photos of the day and details about some of Fox Racing’s new 2017 products.

I got to spin a ton of laps in the new 360 pant and from my first impression I can tell you the pant fit is much more pleasing than last year’s design. The knee area of the new 360 pant is not as bulky, but remains stretchy enough to go over my knee braces easy. I also felt the pant was lighter when putting it on.Photo by Preston Jordan

This photo is a perfect example of why the 360 pant is great. When accelerating out of corners the pant doesn’t pull down your backside forcing your jersey to come un-tucked. The pant stays put and your jersey stays tucked in and I am able to move around on the bike with zero hindrance. I was worried about the middle seam (on the leather of the knee) getting hung up on the shrouds through deep ruts, but it felt seamless and didn’t snag.Photo by Preston Jordan
