Features and technical details
Oakley ARO5 MIPS 2.0 Factory Pilot HelmetWith its brilliantly bright colours, the Oakley ARO5 MIPS 2.0 Factory Pilot Helmet makes a bold statement on the bike. But beyond that, cutting edge safety features and an aero design ensures it stays ahead of the pack in terms of performance too. Combining an aerodynamically efficient design and the latest in head-protecting technology the ARO5 MIPS 2.0 Factory Pilot Cycling Helmet is engineered both for cycling at speed and delivering high standards of protection in the event of a crash. And coming in at a svelte 300 grams, it's not a helmet that will weigh you down either. The core of the helmet is a shock-absorbing EPS foam. Upon impact, this core dissipates damaging forces that would otherwise cause you to suffer head injuries. To the outside of the EPS foam is a lightweight polycarbonate shell. This adds structural support to the protective core and ensures the ARO5 is durable enough to meet the demands of regular use. This protection is then bolstered by the MIPS® Brain Protection system. MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System)Working in tandem with the helmet’s EPS protective foam lining to offer added safety with each and every ride, the ARO5 has been designed using innovative MIPS technology, inspiring confidence and offering the ultimate form of protection should you suffer an unexpected fall from the saddle. What is MIPS? • MIPS is a Brain Protection System• Rotational motion can cause brain injuries• The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact• MIPS adds protectionA Winning FitOakley have gone the extra mile to ensure you enjoy nothing but sublime comfort when you're pushing yourself to the limits of your fitness.
