Collection features all-new Reflex helmet, Agile Plus glove and upgraded racewear.
Great challenges must be met with even greater advancements. For the 2021 season, Thor MX has announced key technical updates to its championship-winning racewear collection, alongside brand-new, progressive technical products designed to elevate riders and racers to reach their own next level of performance.
After years of research and development and first seen on the HEP Suzuki team during the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series, Thor’s brand-new Reflex helmet embodies the infusion of style and technology. Available with a carbon fiber or fiberglass composite shell, the Reflex offers Koroyd technology integrated into a premium dual density EPS liner in conjunction with MIPS brain protection system. This unique combination of multiple technologies in a single helmet is what truly sets the Reflex apart from the competition.
Koroyd’s welded tubes crumple instantly and consistently on impact, absorbing maximum force in a controlled manner, minimizing energy transferred to your head. Air flows consistently through the open-cells, whilst hot air from your head can easily escape, ensuring more efficient cooling in the most intense conditions.
The Reflex offers extensive intake venting with strategic channels, enhanced by the benefit of Koroyd material, carrying on to multiple exhaust vents designed to accelerate the airflow in a precise and effective manner. Koroyd provides advanced breathability and ultralight feel, but first and foremost, better protection which may reduce the risk of suffering a life-changing injury.
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb has preferred the Prime Pro chassis since it was launched in 2019. It was throughout Webb’s championship-winning season and strong 2020 series defence that Thor gathered vital race day knowledge to enhance the Prime Pro for 2021. Featuring new lay-flat, inboard side cinches, amplified density In-Motion main chassis fabric and upgraded stretch mesh panels in critical areas, the revamped Prime Pro pant is ready to continue its winning ways.
Never before has an update so clearly redefined what a product is tasked to achieve. Taking critical material and fit cues from Prime Pro, the all-new Pulse chassis continues a legacy rooted in materials designed for better abrasion resistance and extended wear, with focused integration of In-Motion materials at key locations to reduce weight and increase flexibility.
Additionally, the Women’s Pulse pant and jersey chassis received a fit refinement, resulting in a more athletic, performance-oriented appeal. No other kit on the market offers this level of tech and performance fit, at such a reasonable price.
Heat leads to fatigue and fatigue leads to poor results. The all-new Pulse Air is purpose-built to combat troublesome heat with maximum airflow and elite functionality. The jersey offers a full mesh main chassis and engineered mesh panels strategically placed to enhance airflow and comfort. The pant boasts durable, fully-breathable, ‘power mesh’ panels incorporated with In-Motion materials to amplify performance.
Agile Plus glove
An evolutionary step from the original Agile, the 2021 Agile Plus glove has become the spec piece for Thor’s factory racers around the world. With a lightweight chassis design and single layer perforated palm, the Agile Plus provides premium cooling and precise feedback from the motorcycle.
