The Rampage is the bargain full-face offering from Fox. The first thing you should consider about this helmet is that it retails for just $130, making it the second least expensive helmet in our review. It is priced well below the average of the six helmets in our test, which is about $200. It is the lightest and least expensive helmet in our test to meet the ASTM-F1952 standard, which we consider a good benchmark for lift-assisted riding. The next cheapest options that meet this standard are the Bell Transfer-9 and the Giro Cipher, which cost roughly 50% more than the Rampage. These qualities combine to earn this helmet our Best Buy Award.
It's lighter, cheaper, and meets the same standards as heavier more expensive lids. The only drawback is durability: it didn't stand up to everyday use very well. Also the ventilation within the helmet is not as good as on pricier lids. Still, we think this helmet offers the best bang for the buck of all the helmets we evaluated and is a good option for those pinching pennies to save for a new 650b DH rig. If you want a burlier version of this helmet, the Fox Rampage Pro Carbon is a more substantial version with a carbon shell. However, it is also much more expensive and actually weighs more despite the carbon.
This helmet is available in four sizes and at least four different colorways.
