attention was diverted to other manufacturers in the industry that were well known for their sole focus on helmet design and technology. It wasn't until I managed to land myself on O'Neal's Rider Support Program that I finally grabbed one of their helmets and gave it a shot.
At the price point of $299.99, the 10 Series is O'Neal's top shelf helmet. The first thing I noticed about the helmet is how lightweight it is. It's seriously so light, it makes you second guess it's construction. But, you can be sure that this helmet has got high ratings and will protect your dome in the event you decide to take a dirt nap. It meets standards for DOT, ECE 22-05, AS/NZS and ACU. So, you're good!
I've noticed with some of my other helmets, my neck will actually get sore after a few ride days. Now, I'm not the best rider, but I'm not out there casing jumps on a regular basis, so I can only assume the weight of the helmet has something to do with my neck being a tad sore.
What can I say, this helmet has all the features you would expect from a piece of gear at this price point.
-Removable Coolmax® washable interior padding (replacements available)
-Goggle traction pad
-Rubber roost nose guard
The biggest selling points for me are the weight (1150g or 2.53 lbs) and the safety ratings on this helmet. I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone who is looking for a lightweight helmet with top safety ratings that isn't going to put you in the poor house.
