WHAT STANDS OUT? Here’s a list of things that stand
out with the Fox Racing 360 gear.
(1) Jersey. Fox made some subtle updates to its
already-proven 360 gear for 2015. While small, these
changes add to the overall design and comfort of the
360 gear. The sleeves of the jersey are back to being an
athletic fit for 2015. Last year they went away from the
tapered look, and many MXA test riders didn’t like the
change. For 2015, from the forearm down, the sleeves are
more tailored and slightly longer. Additionally, the entire
back of the jersey is mesh, which was true in 2014, but
the mesh-hole diameter has been increased for enhanced
airflow. The overall jersey length has been increased to
help it stay tucked in while you ride.
( 2) Pant. The upper half of the pant has been vastly
improved for comfort. The waist line is made with a
smoother texture that doesn’t feel as constricting at the
waist. Zipper actuation is smoother due to the down-
sizing of the gauge of the teeth. A four-way stretch panel
has been added to the front of the pant for improved
mobility. This helped the overall fit of the 360 at the hips
and waist. Fox also lengthened the pants as they did the
jersey. For our shorter test riders, this meant that they
had to accommodate the extra leg length with folds. Two
other noticeable modifications for 2015 are that the
cowhide leather knee patches are sewn in from the inside
of the pant, and the stretch accordion sections over the
knees have been enlarged for more knee brace room.
( 3) Cut. The pant is ergonomically constructed to fit
best when the rider is in the attack position. An elastic
panel down both legs allows the pant to contour to a
moving body. Thanks to an elastic stretch belt, the Fox
360 pant has an inch of give to allow a size- 32 pant to
fit waist sizes from 31 to 33. Inside, there is a 3/4-length
mesh liner that is stitched all the way around so that the
liner won’t catch on your knee guards and bunch up.
( 4) Comfort. This is incredibly comfortable gear to
wear. It is not restrictive, but be forewarned, if you
prefer a loose fit, the Fox 360 gear is more form-fitting
than typical race gear.
( 5) Durability. The leather patches on the knees are
well-placed and long enough to protect you from your
bike’s exhaust. There is a hard rubber patch on the side
of each knee that acts as a bumper to protect you from
wearing through the knees in a crash.
( 6) Options. The 2015 Fox 360 pant is offered in sizes
ranging from 28 to 38, and the jersey is available in sizes
from small to extra-extra large.
WHAT’S THE SQUAWK? We have two quibbles:
(1) The Italian-style tailoring of the jersey sleeves isn’t
well-suited to beefy, bulky or big riders. ( 2) The pant
length could be too long for short riders.
For 2015, the Fox 360 gear has made some big
improvements in comfort and functionality,
but it is tailored for taller riders.
