Fox Lunar: The Best MTB Clothes To Be Seen In

Some high visibility clothing can look a bit geeky, but this is the price you pay to not get squashed while riding. But now there is a new line of high visibility threads from the mountain biker’s staple brand, Fox. The Fox lunar range is ideal for riders that like to ride even when the days are short and the nights are long. Here is a round up of the the Fox Lunar clothing range and why it is so good.

FLEXAIR PRO LUNAR 3L JACKET

Fox Flexair lunar jacket

This jacket is designed to increase your visibility in low light conditions. The Fox logos and details are reflective, which helps you stand out, as does the hi-vis yellow colour.

The Flexair Pro Lunar 3L is made from a technical, water proof and breathable fabric. This means that you will stay dry on the outside and on the inside. Its features include a hood that fits over your helmet and strategic laser vents that give you great airflow without inflating the jacket as you are bombing along a trail.

I really like that the pockets are a good size to stash your essentials safely. I also like how this jacket looks and fits. It has an enduro style fit and cut, which means it has enough room to layer up, but isn’t so baggy that it flaps around at speed.

This is a quality jacket that will keep you warm, dry and safe while riding your bike.

Features

  • Our most breathable waterproof MTB jacket
  • Special Edition hi-vis fabric and reflective logos for increased visibiliy
  • Advanced weather protection features fully taped seams and waterproof zippers

  • Front hand pockets with separate compartments to keep your stuff in place while you ride
  • Adjustable hood fits over most helmets
  • Draw cord on lower hem for precise fit
  • Zippered storm flap to easily reach valuables in mid-layers
  • Water-resistant YKK front zipper

Defend Delta Lunar Jersey

The Fox Defend Delta Lunar Jersey is made from the Polartec® Delta™ fabric. This stuff dries super quickly and is very breathable, even when wet. This is a great jersey for when you are riding hard and working up a sweat, or when the conditions get a bit soggy. The fabric is not only designed to reduce the amount you sweat, but it has built in resistance to abrasion. This means that the fabric is durable and prevents snags and rubs from bushes and overgrown branches on the trails.

Features

  • Special Edition hi-vis fabric and reflective logos for increased visibility
  • Polartec® Delta™ is engineered across the fabric surface to increase airflow, reduce friction, and dissipate heat

Fox Racing Ranger Drirelease Lunar Short Sleeve Jersey

For riders that prefer short sleeve Jerseys, you can’t go wrong with the Ranger Drirelease Lunar Short Sleeve Jersey. This also has the Polartec® Delta™ fabric for superior drying ability. This fabric acts as a cooling system to reduce the amount you sweat when working hard. Just like the Delta long sleeve jersey, the Ranger has strategically placed abrasion resistant zones, to prevent snagging and pulls from overgrown bits of nature you may brush up against.

As an extra bonus, the Ranger has odour resistant properties, so you won’t offend too many people while you are having that post ride beer.

The bright yellow helps you stand out from the natural greens and browns you get on the trails. This means that you will be easily visible and it will help you stand out on rad photos of you riding in the forests.
