The Oakley ARO5 Race offers maximum breathability and has been specially developed for top performance on the road. The ARO5 Race features an aerodynamic and ventilated design that significantly increases airflow via 19 vents. The ARO5 Race is lighter than its predecessor, the ARO5, providing the edge needed to overtake the competition. Combined with additional technical innovations in the integration of eyewear, comfort and protection, the ARO5 Race is ready to pick up the pace.
The ARO5 Race is lighter than its predecessor, the ARO5, thanks to a redesigned shell and other internal changes.
The front vents provide the rider with a secure way to stow their goggles. Unobtainium® temples keep goggles in place, and cut-outs in the foam on the inside of the helmet prevent the temples from damaging the wearer's head in the event of an impact. This creates a simple and intuitive storage space for the driver's glasses.
The ARO5 Race sports a trademark Iridium® coating that mirrors the Prizm™ lens colors of Oakley eyewear. The color of the decal matches the color of the helmet, in keeping with Oakley's legacy of eyewear.
The MIPS® Air protection system is a helmet-integrated, low-friction protective layer that reduces rotational movements of the head: it protects against the dangerous forces that could otherwise act on the rider's head.
