The Oakley ARO5 Race MIPS helmet features a lightweight, aerodynamic design for increased speed.
It has the BOA adjustment system and MIPS brain protection to guarantee maximum safety and comfort. In addition, it has a forehead pad that absorbs moisture, increasing wearing comfort, especially when body temperature increases. It has also been manufactured with integrated glasses for safe storage and quick and easy access.
Boa Closure System: The Boa closure fixes and maintains pressure, is quick to operate and easy to release.
- MIPS System: Leading flat-shift technology within the helmet, designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts. When a head rotates rapidly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration can cause high levels of stress on brain tissue. The stretching of the tissue caused by these movements can lead to several types of brain injuries.
We believe that helmets equipped with MIPS technology can add a higher level of protection against certain types of impacts. MIPS uses a flat displacement system that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the brain protection system itself. This layer is designed to rotate within the helmet with the intent of potentially slowing down or reducing the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the stress associated with rotational acceleration, we could reduce the risk and severity of brain damage.
