International Ride MTB Day - July 20th

On July 20th, every year, we will join mountain bikers around the world by blowing off all other obligations and simply riding our mountain bikes. We encourage riders everywhere - in all regions and skill levels - to join in on the fun. 

 

International Ride Mountain Bike Day will take place Saturday, July 20th and continue annually thereafter. Otherwise known as Ride MTB Day, this yearly movement is composed of community-based events that will take place around the globe with mountain bike brands, media, professionals, retailers, parks and local riders everywhere - each showing their love and support for the sport of mountain biking by holding group rides, fundraisers, races and demos.

 

The sport of Mountain Biking has an incredible culture and Ride MTB Day is a great way to celebrate it.  Ride MTB Day is not a Fox-owned event, but our goal is to have the concept adopted by the entire industry and raise mountain bike awareness and participation. We look forward to more and more brands and retailers supporting Ride MTB Day year after year.

 

On this day, each year, mountain bikers will gather together at local trails, bike parks, and bike shops and even enjoy solitary rides, helping to bring riders all over the world together.

MADE FOR YOUR RIDE | KAOS SEAGRAVE

Durability, versatility or mobility? Kaos Seagrave spends as much time building trails in the Welsh countryside as he does shredding them. For digging and riding, he mixed the Ranger and Defend gear to give him the protection and style he needs. Add in the versatility of the all-new Dropframe Helmet, and you have a kit made for his ride. Like Kaos, you can use our kit builder to create your own custom look.

-Kaos Seagrave – Pro Downhill Athlete

Home - Ethan Nell Utah Freeride

Watch Ethan Nell put the all-new Rampage Pro Carbon to the test on his home trails near Virgin, Utah. Famous for rugged canyon walls and massive drops, it’s where he was born and raised, and the place he calls home. Eboy and his friends spend their days carving lines out of the shale and sandstone, creating a massive playground where few dare to drop in. Home gives us a glimpse of the sage-covered beauty and insane riding waiting for Ethan just outside his back door.

“The new RPC is lighter, loaded with tech, and comes in black. What more could you want in a helmet?"

- Ethan Nell – Freeride Mountain Biker

ETHAN NELL’S GEAR

That’s right Ethan… it’s available in black, white, silver, and the super unique iridescent Weld colorway. Our all-new RPC helmet  is here, and now, "Eboy approved." This state-of-the-art mountain bike lid is loaded with the latest in energy mitigating materials and technology – like Fluid Inside® and Varizorb EPS foam. This arsenal of technology is fitted into an ultralight and ventilated shell. So, you get both comfort and peace of mind.

The Vue Goggle is the perfect partner for the RPC. Its expansive viewport gives you the maximum field of view. Something that comes in pretty handy when you're spotting your landing.

Ethan’s jersey of choice is the Flexair Delta™ Jersey. And, there is a ton of reasons why. First, it has nearly limitless flexibility – a feature which is especially beneficial when making athletic moves on your bike. Second, thanks to the power of Polartec® Delta™, this jersey is cool, really cool. The fabric acts like mini radiators to keep you cooler, drier and more comfortable. And third, the densely knit sleeves provide abrasion resistance where you need it most.

Loic Bruni & Tahnée Seagrave Win at Maribor

The Fox MTB team got off to a great start at the UCI Downhill World Cup season opener in Maribor, Slovenia. The weather, however, was seasonably unpredictable. Downpours during Saturday's qualifiers were followed by sunshine on Sunday. The mixed conditions caught more than a few elite riders during the race. This made runs during the morning practice session crucial as riders finalized tire choice and made other preparations. The Fox DH team had ups and downs throughout the weekend, but victories for both Loic and Tahnée ended race day on a high note.

 

Loic Bruni Wins the Men’s Elite Downhill

Winning back-to-back races - for the first time in his career - was a much better start to the season. “Compared to last year, it’s a big improvement," Loic explained. "I was a little bit looking for redemption. I did my best and attacked a lot. I was super loose, and I was on the limit, and I’m happy I rode like that because I think that was the only way to do it... Solid first race with the new bike - let’s hope it’s the start of a good year!” The defending World Champ heads to next month’s race in Fort William with both the Rainbow Stripes and WC leaders vest. It's the first time he's held both honors!

 

Tahnée Seagrave Wins the Women’s Elite Downhill

Tahnée spent two weeks in Maribor preparing for the World Cup opener. Though things were up and down during that time, the practice paid off on race day. She blitzed the course and ended up with the victory. A very happy Tahnée stated later, “It took a lot of hard work, so I’m pretty stoked to start the season off with a win!" A training injury in December shortened her early season training, but she worked hard in the months and weeks leading up to the race which showed in her confidence during her run. “I knew it was a good run, I knew where I needed to get the work done so when I came in and I did it how I want to, I kinda knew it was a good run,” said Tahnée after the race. She heads to her home race in June with the World Cup leader's vest for the first time. No doubt her home fans will be going crazy in Ft. Bill!

 

Laurie Greenland Take Ninth Place in the Men’s Elite Downhill

Laurie G rode a fast and calculated race to take ninth place. Laurie has been steadily progressing in the last two seasons. Starting this year with a top ten finish is another great step in his progression as an elite rider. He was thrilled with the great performance to start the season. “I’m stoked because I gave it my all today," he stated. "Good, tight racing! P9 to round up the weekend and 8th in points!" After Maribor, Laurie heads to his home race in the UK with confidence and momentum.

 

Finn Iles Takes 52nd in the Men’s Elite Downhill

Finn had a great weekend going in Maribor before a mistake ended his chance at a podium. While leading by a fraction of a second, a tiny error on an off camber root section washed out his front wheel. He rebounded quickly and finished the race with blistering times on the lower segments. The crash landed him in 52nd place. His disappointment was visible but his post-race comments showed he has the mental fortitude to overcome this hurdle. “This weekend, we had a really good process; the race run didn’t go how we wanted it to but I think the process just needs to stay the same and I just need to stay a little bit more focused on what I’m doing when I’m racing and just tone it down a little bit," he explained. "The speed is there and the focus is there, I think I need to go slow to go fast. It’s all a learning process because I’m still nineteen. I just need to be a bit slower and have a few good results and get my confidence and be good in the overall, then I can really push it because as much as I want to win, I need to have good results to back it up. I just need to continue on and it will work out - seven more chances.” Finn and the Specialized Gravity team head to chance number two in Fort William next month.

 

Loris Vergier Takes 58th in the Men’s Elite Downhill

Much like Finn, a great start took a turn for the worse for Loris on Sunday. A solid fifth position in qualifying had him confident for race day and his run started well as he was only six-tenths off the lead heading into the third timed segment. Things went sideways quickly both literally and figuratively as he washed his back tire and clipped a tree. The spectacular crash was scary to watch but thanks in part to his new RPC helmet he popped up quickly and finished the course - setting some of the fastest times on the lower segments. “It was the first race of the season so it’s always a tricky one," he said. "I felt good, no pressure on, I was just trying to ride well and I ended up doing a mistake on the corner that I should have not approached as fast, it’s my mistake but it happens. The new helmet works good, I crashed hard and I feel like I have nothing wrong pretty much and the MVRS (Magnetic Visor Release System) is good. Let’s focus on the rest of the season!” His 58th place finish means he’ll need to do some work over the next couple of races to get back into contention for the overall title, but with his speed and confidence, he’ll be back competing for a podium quickly.

 

After a fantastic start to the season in Maribor, the Fox MTB DH team has some time to rest and recover before the training starts again for UCI Downhill World Cup race number two in legendary Fort William, UK. One of the most iconic races in the history of Downhill, Fort Bill is a coveted race, a win there can make a riders year or even their career. Watch as these athletes compete during the rest of the season in the all-new Rampage Pro Carbon and Defend and Flexair gear which was made for their ride!

2019 FOX US OPEN OF MTB

The Fox US Open of Mountain Bike is coming to the West Coast on September 12-15th. A fact which may seem trivial, except when you consider it's the first time in the event's history.  We are proud to be the title sponsor and thrilled to have the event in our own backyard - Snow Summit Bike Park in Big Bear Lake, CA.

 

EVENT SCHEDULE

 

We're really looking forward to hosting the Fox US Open on the west coast for the first time in our 16 year history! Not only is Big Bear Lake a beautiful location, the town has deep roots in MTB racing. Snow Summit is investing in their bike park and we like their long-term vision. And they know how to throw a good party, so we're feeling right at home!

— Clay Harper, Event Director, Fox US Open

The Fox US Open of Mountain biking will feature a wide range of events including Downhill, Enduro, best whip competition and USO Next Gen Youth Downhill events - giving the future of the sport a chance to show what they got.

This may be the first west-coast-hosted Fox US Open of Mountain Biking. But, Snow Summit Bike Park is no novice when it comes to putting on world-class events. They hosted the NORBA Nationals back in the '90s and have made a name for themselves with their annual -  and wildly popular -  Crafts & Cranks event. And with an event in southern California, spectators and athletes can expect beautiful riding conditions with blue skies and plenty of sunshine.

 

“Snow Summit Bike Park and the entire community of Big Bear Lake are excited to welcome the Fox US Open of Mountain Biking. Summit, similar to the Open, is built around fun on bikes along with sharing similar values to our everyday operations here in the bike park. Both Summit and the Open have a long history with mountain biking, and we are looking forward to the partnership and its future.”

—Clayton Shoemaker, Marketing Director, Big Bear Mountain Resort

An outstanding list of US Open partners will join us including GT Bicycles, Red Bull, Cliff Bars, Shimano, Vittoria Tires, and Fox Factory. Spectating is free, and the bike park will be open to the public all weekend. Come join us for an awesome weekend spent riding and watching world-class racing.

MADE FOR YOUR RIDE - EP. 2 | LOIC BRUNI

Sunny with a chance of rowdy. The perfect conditions to put our new Spring MTB Collection to the test. In our Made for Your Ride video series, we ask our pros two simple questions: where do you want to ride? And, what do you want to wear? For our second episode, Loic Bruni matched the fast and technical terrain of La Garriga, Spain with a tough-as-nails Defend kit. The result, as you just witnessed, was pretty fun and very fast.

 

List of the mountain bike riding condition Loic Bruni rode in during the video

 

“Riding in a kit this comfortable will make your day. I love the blend of durability, stretch and ventilation. Plus, red sure makes you look fast."

- Loic Bruni – UCI DH World Champion

 

LOIC BRUNI’S GEAR

Well said, Loic. We couldn’t agree more. Red can make you look fast standing still. And, in our totally-nonscientific opinion, will cut at least a few hundredths off your time.

It may have been hard to see, but that red blur in the video was the all-new Defend jersey and pants. Defend, as in defending you and the garment from abrasion and trail-related wear and tear. In our arsenal of mountain bike apparel, it’s the go-to for the perfect balance of durability and comfort. All thanks to the abrasion-resistant fabric, strategic stretch zones, and smart venting.

 

LEARN MORE ABOUT DEFEND

 

WHAT’S YOUR NEXT RIDE?

Mirroring the Made of Your Ride video series, we now pose you a similar set of questions: where do you ride? And, which features would make it the best ride ever? The choice is yours:

Flexair – super breathable and wonderfully forgettable; it’s the next best thing to bringing an AC along for the ride. Ranger – a discrete lunch-ride kit with a casual aesthetic which conceals exceptional moisture-wicking properties. It’s a kit that says “yeah I ride” but will blend in with the crowd when you're enjoying a couple of cold ones at the local brewery. Defend – an mtb kit that would make Tony Stark jealous. Not only is it armored with durable fabrics like Kevlar®, but it also has intelligent features like targeted venting and strategic stretch.

To create a kit of your own, use our MTB kit builder tool. With three benefit-driven mountain bike collections, the kit you imagine can be as diverse as the terrain you ride in.
