Oakley ARO5 Helmet

The Oakley ARO5 Helmet sits squarely in the middle of Oakley's new three-tiered helmet offerings. In between the ultra-aero ARO7 and the more ventilated, lighter weight ARO3, the ARO5 strikes the middle ground for an improved aero profile that still provides modest ventilation for summer racing or riding.

The inside of the ARO5 is just as striking as the outside, with BOA® 360 degree fit system, MIPS Brain Protection, and a moisture-wicking brow pad. The BOA® FS1-S is a height adjustable 360 design that delivers an exact fit,with a soft textile feel and flexibility, the TX1 Lace lies flat against the head, allowing for seamless eyewear integration. And when eyewear isn't necessary, the front vents allow for secure storage that keeps the optics close at hand.


Features:

  • Specializes in seamless optics integration, optimal fit, and aero performance without compromising ventilation.
  • MIPS Brain Protection System reduces rotational forces on the brain resulting from angled impacts.
  • BOA FS1-S 360 Fit System is height adjustable, and sits flush with the head for seamless eyewear integration.
  • X-STATIC browpad is moisture wicking and anti-microbial for the ultimate in comfort.
  • Claimed weight: 300 grams.

Oakley boa system works.

Overall i like the style and look of the product. The boa system works well for me although it does run small....pay attention to your sizing. The profile of this helmet is bigger than my giros but it preforms well and is comfortable.

Mediocre

At first glance, I would give this helmet a 10 for style. Once I took it out of the box, though, my excitement dwindled. My first issue with the helmet was the height adjustment tab. For such an expensive helmet, the plastic piece is flimsy and snaps in and out of place for adjustments. Once it is snapped into place, it is very difficult to remove, if you're not careful you will break the piece. My next problem is while actually wearing the helmet At speed the air rushing into the large scoop at the back pulls the helmet away from your head. Very poor design. The only way to alleviate this problem to some degree is to wear a thin skullcap or sweatband like Headsweats as you can tighten the securing nob for a better grip. Lastly, for a manufacturer of sunglasses, I am disappointed with how I am unable to slide my Oakley Jawbreakers into the air vents when not in use (they do not secure nearly well enough and WILL slide right out the moment you tilt your head forward). So, taking these issues into account, it's a great looking but rather poorly designed helmet. For the price there are better quality options.

Great fit and breathability

I will start by saying it allows a great amount of air flow for an aero helmet. The weight of the helmet is slightly heavy, but you do not notice it is on your head while riding. The Boa fit system makes this helmet easy to adjust on the fly and use with any type of sunglasses. The downfall is the price compared to the competitors in the aero helmet line. BTD is the cheapest place you will find this product and that is what makes it a good deal.

Comfortable and so easy to adjust.

Loved from the moment it came. Immediately comfortable alone or with winter wool cap underneath it. Old Giro mips helmet pressed eyeglass frame into head if not very careful putting on, causing pain after 15 miles or so. Not so with this. Wonderful. The bright yellow is very visible too. Hope to be unable to report any crash results! Recommended.

Well protected

Hello, I recently fell wearing my ARO5, I hit the back of my head, I went to check myself at the DRs and nothing, I was well protected. I got me a second one. Besides, that is very comfortable.
