WOMENS 180 BOOT

Specifically sized for Women, the Womens Comp 5 uses a Womens last (fit in the foot area) and specific shorter overall height on the smaller sizes. Support and coverage comes from a durable plastic shinplate, medial guard and toe cap.

"The boots are probably the most comfortable women’s MX boots I've ever ridden in."  -  Dirtrider.com

"The boots are probably the most comfortable women’s MX boots I've ever ridden in." Dirtrider.com

The V1 helmet uses an injection molded polycarbonate shell, internal EPS liner and removable washable comfort liner and cheek pads and meets ECE 22.05 and DOT standards. This proven design provides reliable protection from debris and falls. Optimal airflow, a plush liner, and an exceptional fit contribute to the helmets phenomenal comfort.

For an excellent fit, the Fox V1 Race Helmet is engineered in three shells and four EPS dimensions and comes in 6 sizes ranging from XS-XXL. By providing different specifications for each helmet size, you achieve a more accurate and precise fit. The varying sizes and fits mean you can more easily find your perfect match.

There is no reason a full-face motocross helmet should overheat, turning the interior into a sweaty mess. The Fox V1 Race Helmet features an advanced ventilation system to keep you cool, calm and focused. With nine intake and four exhaust vents, the helmet provides a rush of fresh air as you ride and allows heat and moisture to escape. The combination of circulating air and a soft helmet liner will help keep you comfortable even in the scorching heat.

R3 Roose Deflector

The Womens R3 uses an anatomically correct injection molded plastic chest plate to achieve the perfect fit on female riders. Shoulder, back, and bicep coverage uses the same durable plastic that is used on the chest plate. It has fully adjustable and removable padded arm guards. This comes in sizes S/M and M/L.

Fox Women's Athlete Exclusive | Meet Ashley Fiolek

Fox Women's has been supporting women who ride for years. It's clear they genuinely care about ladies getting involved in the sport by creating incredible protection gear that fits and by cheering them on the entire way. We are so proud to have them a part of Babes in the Dirt over the past few years and wanted to highlight and celebrate a few of the women that represent their brand on two wheels. Our first Fox Women's athlete feature needs no introduction. She's the fast as hell, a true phenomenon to watch ride, and one of the kindest and inspiring ladies you will meet on two wheels, meet Motocross Champion Ashley Fiolek. 

Ashley Fiolek : Arguably one of the most iconic women in the action sports industry is 27-year-old former professional motocross athlete Ashley Fiolek. Ashley has broken down more barriers than most to say the least, not only because she was born profoundly deaf, but because she was a female in a male dominated industry. The Michigan native had big dreams of becoming a professional women’s motocross racer, not only did she achieve this dream but was a forced to be reckoned with! Ashley was the first ever women motocross racer to earn a full factory ride like her male counterpart. Along with earning a full factory ride Ashley is a four-time WMA/WMX National Motocross Champion and two-time ESPN X Games Gold Medalist (Women’s Super X).

Her success and inspirational story skyrocketed her into mainstream media with an Emmy award winning Red Bull commercial and appearances on, Conan O'Brien and “Switched At Birth.” Ashley gained worldwide coverage and is the only women motocross racer to appear on a cover of a nationwide publication, Transworld Motocross Magazine. She has graced the pages of, Vogue, Sports Illustrated, and Rolling Stone Magazine and is the co-author of her book “Kicking Up Dirt.” Although Ashley no longer races she spreads her passion and love for motocross through her riding school, Ashley Fiolek MX Schools and is a brand ambassador for Husqvarna Motorcycles and Fox Racing.

How long have you been working with Fox and what do you enjoy most about being a part of the team and representing the brand?

I rode for Fox when I was amateur so it was cool to come back in 2016 as an ambassador.  I love all the Moto, MTB gear and clothes that really fit me and my lifestyle. I also like the comradery of the women who ride and work for Fox and like being associated with a brand that supports current top women racers like Livia Lancelot, Jordan Jarvis, Courtney Duncan, Kyle Fasnacht, and Shelby Rolen.

Where are you from originally, and where do you live currently?

I was born in Michigan and my family moved to Florida when I was 8.  I lived in California for a few years but I am back in Florida now close to my family

When did you start riding dirtbikes, and what inspired you?

I started riding dirt bikes when I was really young and started racing at 7 years old.  Both my dad and grandpa ride dirt bikes.

What inspired you to start AF MX School?

I wanted to help other riders be safer and faster on a dirt bike. I still love riding too so it makes doing the schools really fun. I also love seeing riders (especially women and kids) gain confidence after learning a new riding skill. 

You’ve ridden the best tracks, which one was your favorite to ride and why?

Honestly, that is tough one! I'd say RedBud because the track is absolutely a blast and super rough which I love the challenge. Also, I'm from Michigan so it was awesome to have all the fans out there to cheer me on at my favorite track.

Do you have a desire to compete in Women’s Motorcross again?

I don’t see myself racing Women’s Motocross professionally, may a fun one-off race and I still like doing an off-road race for fun here and there

Tell us about any plans you have for 2018.

Right now I am focused on my schools AFMXschool.com and a few personal projects back in Florida. I hope to spend a lot of free time on trails and motocross tracks and on my mountain bike.

What advice would you give other women who want to participate in Motorcross? 

I'd tell them to not give up. Keep working hard and reach your own dream. Hard work pays off. Most important is to have fun while you're working hard to reach your dream. Also, anything is possible! :)

A Rider's First Experience Going from Street to Dirt

I live in Temecula and worked in MX for 4 years (past life not many know about). I was always too shy to give it a shot because every time the opportunity came around, I was surrounded by colleagues who seemed to be almost pro. I loved going to supercross and seemed to be just fine spectating the sport until Babes in the Dirt was created in 2014. Back then, all I knew about dirt bikes was they were fast, can take one hell of a beating, and the rider often eats it hard. Deep down I was dying to try it.

When we decided to create Babes in the Dirt, we wanted it to be an annual event where women can learn, try something new, and test themselves in a safe environment. If you have ever been to a Babes Ride Out event you know the ladies who attend are incredibly encouraging. With that sort of positive motivation behind me, I  threw a leg over a brand new Husqvarna for the first time at Babes in the Dirt three years ago. 

Getting a run through. They don't call it a crash course for nothing! 

Getting a run through. They don't call it a crash course for nothing! 

As a street rider I can say my first hand experience was eye opening. I am taught sand is the devil and will get you in trouble so at first I was scared when I hit patches of it and the back tire got squirrely. It takes way more core strength and the mental ability to let the bike do what it needs to do to get through sand washes, over rocks, etc. I wouldn't say you give up control, you just have to trust the machine and let it do what it was designed to do. Once I got over that mental barrier (1 hr later BOOM!) I was hooked and by the end of the day I was riding intermediate trails with the Husky crew through Gorman. I had never been so proud of myself for completing that first trail and when I came out at the bottom, the girls cheered for me knowing that I had just accomplished something huge for myself (thank you ladies,  you know who you are!). It instilled a confidence that I had not felt in a long time as nothing is more rewarding than overcoming a fear and challenge with tons of ladies there to support you. Babes in the Dirt will forever be a pivotal moment for me personally and I am so thankful to HusqvarnaFox RacingSeeSee Motorcycles and Thousand Oaks Powersports , SENA, and WLF Enduro for supporting this event to ensure it gives all ladies a chance to get out of our comfort zone, challenge us, and help us become better riders. 

Even though I've been riding street close to 10 years and been on the dirt a few times, I am still a beginner on the dirt with a lot to learn but I can't wait to ride and test myself with the rest of you at Babes in the Dirt 4. I encourage you to sign up for this event if you want to see what riding a dirt bike is like in a safe environment with a ton of support from a posse of ready to encourage you (including me). This event was created for you and you may surprise yourself with how fast you pick it up and how much fun it is, I know I sure did!
