Review by woodypup

Can't accomodate eyewear easily in the dock

This is a great helmet at a great value with one fatal flaw (for me). The much-talked-about eyewear dock seems to only accommodate sunglasses that have a very straight arm. My Rapha frameless arms has a minor bend and a lot of grippy surface, nothing extreme, but it's enough to prevent me from storing the glasses up there. POC glasses (straight arm, not a lot of grip) go in just fine. I like the non-mushroomy style of this helmet but I'm going to have to return it.

Surprisingly Garbage for the Money

So I bought this helmet in Navy blue last year. Worked great! I love this helmet, but yesterday, I put it on to go out on an unusually warm February day in New England, and lo and behold, the entire helmet "cage" inside had come disconnected from the helmet, so the helmet itself is entirely useless now. (No, it was properly kept, off-season, on a shelf). I can't believe the cheap construction. It's too bad, because the helmet fit right. I'd tried a POC before this and it was no good-- didn't fit right. This was excellent. Looks like I'm going running back to Bell or Giro.

Does what a helmet should do.
by Sergio in Florida

This helmet lives up to its name, being very lightweight and unobtrusive. There is not much padding but that just means not much for sweat to absorb into. Pads are not really necessary as the helmet is so lightweight you will hardly even notice it is there. I put it on and forget about it, which is exactly what a helmet should do.

One feature I like is the sunglass holder on the front, it is a good place that is out of the way and won't fall off, even when taking the helmet on and off before or after a ride.

this is my 2nd Oakley helmet, and the quality, durability, and styling is top notch! I chose this one (Aero3) because of the massive cooling vents since it is always Hot here in S. Florida!

A great overall helmet

I needed a new road helmet and had previously purchased the oakley mountain helmet a couple of years ago. I decided to give the ARO3 a chance because I loved the BOA on my mountain helmet and purchased this one. This helmet is lite and so easy to adjust with the BOA. I would recommend this helmet to anyone. It runs a little small my mountain helmet is a medium and with the road helmet I purchased a large.

I wear a pair of prescription Oakley sunglasses while cycling. The straps on several other brands of quality helmets rub against the earpieces of my glasses, causing them to ride up or just be uncomfortable. Not a problem with this helmet. Light and comfortable; kinda forget you're wearing it.

Lite and cool

a comfortable lightweight helmet that fits my head well. Almost no padding inside, which is somewhat disconcerting with my lack of hair. Working out ok though.
