Oakley ARO 7

Oakley has long been the eyewear of choice for many pro cyclists and now the company wants the perfect helmet complement to their eyewear with the ARO Series. Comprised of three different helmets, the designs are built for road racing and are all about protection, fit, and performance.

At the top of the line is the ARO 7, which is designed with triathlons and time trails in mind. Inspired by the shape of race cars, the aerodynamics of the ARO 7 were tuned to cut through air without any drag. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without eye protection and Oakley has come through with a magnetic shield for instant attachment and removal. 

The ARO 5 helmet is built for speed with its lightweight and aerodynamic design, a 360-degree BOA fit system, MIPS protection, anti-microbial brow pads, and a Vane support to channel air into the helmet. ARO 3 has optimized ventilation to keep riders cool and features the same fit system and MIPS protection as the ARO 5. And yes, both helmets feature an 'eyewear dock' to easily store your favorite pair of Oakley frames.

Oakley's ARO Series helmets will launch worldwide February 2018.
