Oakley is famous for their eyewear and has ventured into the world of mountain and road bike helmets. The latest helmet is the Oakley DRT5 for mountain biking. The new DRT5 helmet is not a full-face; it is for trail and all-mountain riding. The DRT5 helmet looks and fits great like some of the more popular models in this category, but with new well thought out features. On the outside of the helmet, toward the rear are 2 clips that point up. Oakley has named these “Eyewear Landing Zone”. These are used to hold your glasses to the helmet so you no longer need to try and squeeze them through the helmet's vents. Additionally, for those who enjoy all mountain terrain riding and utilize goggles on your ride, Oakley DRT5 has a pivotal visor which can be positioned to the top of the helmet to allow for goggles to rest conveniently on the front of the helmet.
The helmet is designed with MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System), the leading slip-plane technology designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts. The Oakley DRT5 helmet uses a BOA dial fit system for easy adjustments and a silicone gutter across the brow to divert sweat away from your eyes. Keeping you cool are a generous amount of large channels for plentiful airflow.
The exterior of the Oakley DRT5 helmet has a carefully shaped profile, especially around the ears and does not interfere with sunglass earpieces. It is a great looking and well-designed mountain bike helmet, with features to make your ride more enjoyable.
