The Oakley ARO3 Helmet sits on the "Ventilated" side of Oakley's new three-helmet ARO series. In between the ultra-aero TT-style ARO7 and the aero race ARO5, the ARO3 is designed for staying cool in the blistering heat. With 5 large vents along the front, the sleek profile maximizes ventilation without compromising on aerodynamics.

The inside of the ARO3 is just as striking as the outside, with BOA 360 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 ventilated aerodynamics, with seamless optics integration, and optimal fit to boot.
  • 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: 295 grams.

Great helmet.
by Swanko
Dallas, TX

I needed a new helmet and my previous 4 are no longer available (Catlike). This helmet has a little more weight but still feels light on my small head. The strapping design is definitely an improvement from the Catlike helmets. I highly recommend it.

Great fit, ugly helmet

While a helmets primary function is protection, it could also have some fashion sense to it. This helmet fit wonderful but was just too lacking in the latter to keep.

Awesome helmet
by BoomerBiker
Cycling Enthusiast

I've been racing or riding for decades and I've had a lot of helmets and I think this is my favorite so far. The primary reason for this is comfort. The boa adjustment gives you the ability to finely tune the fit of the helmet and the helmet straps are comfortable and sit well away from the ears which is hard to achieve with some other helmet strap systems. The fit is secure but comfortable enough to forget it is on. Ventilation is great. The price is very competetive for a MIPS helmet and I bought it on a sale so even better. Some reviews suggest that the helmet runs small, but I think the fit is true to size. I ended up with a medium in the Oakley and used to wear the same size in Giro helmets.

The primary black looks awesome with the retina burn green accent!!! I would recommend this helmet due to the way it fits snug and the MIPS system.

Very Comfortable Helmet
by Al
Cycling Enthusiast

I purchased this in June '18. This is the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. The BOA system works so well that you don't notice it. 14 months later the sweatband separated from the MIPs membrane. It's held on with 2 plastic rivets that attach to the membrane. The membrane is is torn. Waiting for Oakley now on for warranty. Their website says that their helmets have a limited lifetime warranty. Hopefully that will be the case.

Great Fit
by Anonymous

I purchased this helmet for MIPS and the Boa fit system. Fortunately, I havent tested the MIPS. The fit is great and the ability to fine tune on the road is nice. While other helmets are adjustable this one has more control. The only drawback is that as a bald guy the boa leaves a crease above my ears that wouldnt be visible with hair, that said vanity isnt an issue because Im bald!

Bought this helment cause of its weight and Boa system. Both areas were perfect but my big head wouldn't fit. it was good side to side but had too much pressure on front and back. I ordered the large, I normally wear large in specialized helmets,.

Lightweight Breathable Helmet

The most important thing about a helmet is how it fits your head. This one happens to fit my head perfectly while other brands like Giro, Bell, and Poc do not. It's comfortable and well vented. I think my favorite part is the pad that runs across the front of the helmet on the inside which does a great job of preventing sweat from running directly into my eyes.

This helmet is weird that it sits exactly the way it should on my head except it is snug from front to back. Thought about exchanging for a bigger one but then I think a bigger one would sit too low. The one I have is just above the eye brows.

Comfortable and light weight

Super comfortable helmet. Plenty of vents to keep your head cool. Boa retention system is very stable and fine tunable. MIPS technology will keep your melon safer, though I haven't tested it yet. I am very happy with this helmet, the white color is really sleek looking and I've had several compliments on it in group rides. I have a pretty big noggin (7 12) and the large fits me perfect. Comes with a breathable storage bag so your shiny new expensive helmet doesn't get scratched in your gear bag. Oakley had already proven themselves with snowboarding and skiing helmets, and it shows. Great quality, and actually cheaper than equivalent helmets such as from POC, Kask, etc.

The Boa dial makes adjustments a breeze and the chinstraps are very comfortable around the ears.
