Oakley ARO5 Race MIPS Helmet - Matte Black
The Oakley ARO5 Race MIPS helmet features a lightweight, aerodynamic design for speed. It features the BOA fit system and MIPS brain protection, guaranteeing maximum safety and comfort. Plus, it has a forehead pad that wicks away moisture, improving the wearer’s comfort, especially when their body temperature rises. It has also been designed with integrated eyewear so you can store your glasses safely, for quick and easy access.
BOA locking system: The BOA closure secures and holds, it can be operated quickly and is released easily.
MIPS system: MIPS leads in the market for slip plane technology in the helmet’s interior which is designed to reduce any rotational impact from certain knocks. When the head rotates rapidly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration can cause high levels of stress in the brain tissue. The tissue strain caused by these movements can result in various types of brain injuries. We believe that helmets equipped with MIPS technology bring the highest level of protection against certain types of impacts. MIPS uses a slip plane technology that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the same protection system that the brain uses. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the aim of potentially slowing or reducing the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science shows that if we can reduce the stress associated with rotational acceleration, we can reduce the risk and severity of brain damage.
