This helmet is Top Notch

I purchased this helmet for MTB. This Helmet is what I've been looking for. Its comfortable, safe and fits perfect. I believe I purchased this helmet about 6 weeks ago after tons of research. After about a week I took a nasty spill with bike in tow. I don't know if I hit a rock with my head or my bike hit me in the head. I suffered some bruised ribs and chest soreness. I didn't get a headache or dizziness. I still rode about 5 miles off the mountain. Its been one of my best purchases of 2021. I also purchased the same helmet for my wife.

Great Customer Service/Beautiful Product

Biketiresdirect is an amazing retailer with great customer service. The Oakley encoder sunglasses are great, however, they scratch easily. I treat them with kid gloves. One pair came scratched and another within a few weeks of owning it.

Great sweat management for bald guys

I've been cycling for some time (think leather hairnets and Bell V1 Pro era) and have owned a lot of helmets over the years. Helmets are like shoes, the shape either fits or it doesn't. I find the DRT5 to fits me well. For comparison, I find the "ovalness" of Specialized helmets fit my head shape. The coverage is excellent, the fit is trim (not a big old mushroom head helmet) and the adjustments are top notch. As far as I know, Oakley is the first to NOT use foam pads inside a helmet. The MIPS shell fits right against your head so there are no sponges to collect sweat. I find that sweat beads right off my bald head, which brings me to my favorite feature, the silicon gripper. The three blade gripper contacts the forehead at the brow. Any sweat that runs forward gets trapped in between the wiper blades and eventually runs out the side, right down my temples, away from my eyes and glasses. I have used every type of sweat band, dew rag and whatever other sweat management products are out there. None work, they all stop sweat until saturated and then sweat runs down the inside of my glasses and into my eyes. The DRT5 helmet has no foam pad sponges to saturate with sweat. The air flow is good for how few holes the helmet has and the plastic interior holds no moisture, so sweat dries as it runs off my head. Best helmet for bald guys! Like other reviewers, I can take or leave the sunglasses dock. Hey Oakley, put the silicon gripper in a road helmet and I'll buy that as well.

great protection

Been thinking about getting the Oakley Sutro sunglasses for a wile. Finally got em when they were on sale, and glad I did. I got the Mt bike version since I live in the NW where the sun isn't always an issue. Recently rode them on a rainy road bike ride and they were a life saver. Lots of road grit, tire spray my riding partner, and great visibility. The fit is fantastic and have excellent coverage. I wouldn't mind getting a second pair that has more sun protection for those few sunny days.
