2021 FXR Helium review
FXR has recently released their 2021 line of racing gear. If you were a fan of last years Helium line you will not be disappointed. In fact the line received a few updates that were very welcomed.
Jersey: FXR’s sizing runs a bit small here and I recommend ordering a size up. This years line features a larger collar which made taking off the jersey much easier as a member of the XL head club. The second update to the shirt was the lack of cuffs. When I first put on the jersey and took it off I noticed something was different but it wasn’t till I looked at the cuffs that I noticed what it was. This is very much welcomed and helps fit more comfortably. An issue I thought I would see was the jersey riding up and turning into a 3/4th sleeve look but it held in place and was very comfortable. The fabric is light and most importantly breathes very well so it will keep you cool.
Pants: Sizing is true with the pants and their perforated 4-way stretch fabric has yet to be beat in my opinion with stretch and breathability. Last years pants had a velcro loop system on the sides and the front. I had no problems with this and thought it worked fine. For 2021 the pants kept the velcro adjustment on the sides but the front now features a metal ratchet system. This years pants again have a great athletic fit that is tight yet lets you move about freely.
Performance: This pant and jersey will keep you cool and leave your mobility unrestricted. The materials used have great stretch properties and are very light. I think the greatest attribute to FXR’s Helium line is that you put it on and forget about it. The jersey doesn’t get hot and start holding sweat. The pants don’t start getting hot and bunching up. You put it on and forget about it.
Custom Screening: I paid the additional amount to have the jersey come with my name and number and it was well worth it. The numbers look great and are holding up after washes. Be advised that this service will add about a week for your order to arrive at your door.
Custom Screening: $50.00
