Fox’s entire outerwear collection can deal with rain, cold and wind thanks to its customisable layering solution

Fox clothing is known as one of the most stylish brands on the market, and its current outerwear collection enhances this quality with some serious technical know-how, whatever the weather throws at you.

Choosing performance bike outerwear can be confusing and full of jargon, which is why Fox organises its outerwear range into clear and understandable categories, using three overarching category names: Water, Fire and Wind. Even without explaining any further, it’s easy to work out what each category focuses on. Water is for rainy and wet weather. Fire is for cold temperatures. Wind is for, yep… you guessed it, windy conditions.

Fox clothingWithin each of the three categories (Water, Fire, Wind) there is a comprehensive range of apparel, from high-tech garments with fancy fabrics and an athletic cut through to simpler, classic pieces with a more casual look. The entire collection is designed so that you can – and should – mix and match between the three categories (Water, Fire, Wind) to assemble an outfit that best suits you and your riding environment. Cold but dry? Wet but mild? Windy AF? A typical UK woodland rider, for instance, may wish to prioritise wet weather protection and not be so concerned with cold temperatures or wind chill.

To help you work out what’s best for you and your riding, we’ve gone through Fox’s outerwear range and selected a few items in each category (Water, Fire, Wind) that we feel are the most useful for most mountain bikers.
