Interesting look into the development of the new Fox Flexair gear. It looks like it has been designed along similar lines as the One Industries VAPOR gear as well as the Seven MX ZERO gear both of which I am a huge fan of so I am sure the Fox version will be brilliant.

The massively updated version of the 2016 KTM GFX powerwear gear which I designed last year should also be great. We put a big focus on improving the fit, feel and using some more lightweight /stretch materials for this year and is similar in philosophy to the Flexair gear which is why i mention it. It will be the final MX gear designed by me for KTM so I am happy it turned out well.  You can see it in this vid.

Anyway, back to FOX: “From concept to rider, Fox has been secretly developing and testing FLEXAIR for the past 3 years. Initial concept testing began in 2012 with the GEICO Honda 250 team of Justin Barcia, Trey Canard and Eli Tomac. In 2014 prototype FLEXAIR racepants were elevated to the race testing phase, when Ken Roczen and Ryan Dungey wore FLEXAIR pants at the New Jersey supercross. Ken Roczen wore prototype FLEXAIR pants during the 2014 motocross national series, ultimately winning FLEXAIR it’s first “unofficial” championship. Ryan Dungey wore prototype FLEXAIR jerseys and pants during the entire 2015 supercross series, winning 8 main events and FLEXAIR’s second “unofficial” championship.”
