Oakley is, of course, best known for its vast range of high quality shades, but the company has just announced that is launching a range of three road helmets later this year.

The ARO3 is similar in shape to the ARO5, but optimises ventilation over all else, losing some of the wind-cheating sculpting in favour of large, cooling vents.

The helmet shares the same retention system and glasses dock as the ARO5. Likewise, it is also available in six different funky shades.

Oakley has actually been producing a range of snowsports helmets for some time now, so this isn’t a totally new direction for the brand and we’re really looking forward to trying these out.

These helmets will be in very short supply as Oakley are hand selecting just a few stores in the UK to carry them. We expect to be able to deliver these to you in early 2018.
