Hey, everyone! We’ve been getting quite a bit of MX gear in lately with new gear from Fly Racing, Oneal and there’s even news that we’ll have Fox Racing gear soon too! But for now, I thought I’d bring a new helmet to the spotlight- the Oneal 3 Series Attack Motocross Helmet.
I mostly want to talk about this helmet because it completes the Oneal 2018 Attack Kit of the same graphic, which happens to be my favourite of all the Oneal 2018 gear. And the kit looks that great I just had to make a blog about the helmet as well since I can tell it’s going to be a popular set.
The shell of the helmet is made of an ABS construction, a lightweight but tough polymer with excellent properties for taking impact forces and dispersing it across the shell to minimise damage to the head. As well as being covered in a really cool graphic, every time I look at it, I find something different in it. It’s very similar to Oneal’s “Crank” graphic but with a more controlled amount of colour which makes it a bit easier to match with other kits of the same hi-vis, white and black palette. That said, the helmet does also come in a red and teal version too which also looks very striking.
The padding in the helmet is soft and comfortable as well as removable, because riding off-road can work up quite the sweat and Oneal knows that you’ll want to be able to take that lining out to be able to wash it and keep it fresh. Everything is simply held in place with poppers that pop off and pop back in with a little bit of effort, so taking it all out and putting it back in the right way is really easy.
To help keep you cool in your off road rides, the helmet also features a number of vents, designed to let hot air flow out while the cool air pours in and keep you from overheating inside your lid.
The peak on the helmet is adjustable, so you have some control over the amount of light getting in your eyes and a good guard against any debris from the track that’s kicked up in your direction.
The chin strap features a double D-ring fastener, the most secure of the helmet fastening methods, so you can be sure your helmet is going to stay safely and firmly on your noggin as you’re flying off those bumps in the track.
The helmet weighs just 1350g, give or take another 50g depending on what size you get but the weight is nice and easy on the neck, preventing neck strain which can lead to an uncomfortable ride. The helmet is also very safe too, it meets the latest ECE 22-05 standards, is DOT approved and is even ACU approved for use on track days.
At just £88.95, this helmet is an amazingly reasonable price, especially considering how new the graphic is as well as considering the brand- Oneal, who are well known for making some of the best MX gear out there on the market. The helmet combined with the trousers, jersey and gloves comes to just £240.80. Not even £250 and you’ll have got yourself one of Oneal’s best looking and best performing kits going.
