The Future of Cycling: The Aero Advantage - The Oakley ARO Series
MANILA, PHILIPPINES, November 6 /PR Creato/ These days, there’s a multitude of cycling helmets to choose from. You can get lost trying to find the perfect head gear; and when you finally choose one, you find that it’s not the perfect fit. From it being too tight, too loose, no eyewear compartment, or even too enclosed -- the list goes on and it can get very frustrating. Enter the Oakley ARO Series. Product design and sport performance eyewear mogul Oakley has found an opportunity to sweep us away from frustration. Known for their commitment to continuously develop products that elevate their users performance, Oakley addresses all these frustrations and more.
OAKLEY EXPANDS REACH IN THE CYCLING INDUSTRY
“Oakley has always been known for its innovation. This year, we’re very excited to announce that we are introducing the ARO series to the cycling community! Three different helmets that address different issues about headgears like space, fit, and eyewear integration.” said Oakley Philippines (Meera Enterprises, Inc.) Marketing Manager, Louren Lacanlale.
THE OAKLEY ARO SERIES
Oakley has always involved athletes in product development allowing them to design products geared towards function. Focusing on different purposes, Oakley launches the ARO Series mainly the ARO3, ARO5, and ARO7.
Housed in lightweight polycarbonate shell, these road racing helmets, are more than just protective gear! Safety being the cutting edge of these helmets, each one is equipped with MIPS Brain Protection System: a low friction layer separating the shell and the lining devised to reduce rotational motion on angled impact, providing the rider with superior protection. Each helmet is also lined with EPS Protective Foam that absorbs impact and road vibrations.
Oakley also threw in the BOA® FS1-1 System. A 360-degree fit system wherein a dial tensions the TX1 lace: soft, flexible, and thin lace that lies flat inside the helmet for a more snug and custom fit with less pressure on your temples. It also makes it easier to use shades as it doesn’t compete with space.
Of course, when you ride, you sweat. And there’s always odor when sweat is concerned. The ARO Helmets are set with X-STATIC® Brow Pad that draws off liquid and inhibits bacterial growth keeping you odor-free.
The ARO3 and ARO5 are decked out with an eyewear dock so you can stow your glasses and easily accessed when needed. Both models are also compatible with Oakley’s line of eyewear. On the other hand, the ARO7 includes two visors that you can swap out between Prizm™ Road and clear lens. These are guided with magnetic attachments that keep the visors in place.
Each helmet is geared towards different riding profiles:
The Flight Jacket and the Field Jacket are Oakley’s two new additions in a wide array of optic technology. Available in 7 colors and in Prizm™, Prizm™ Polarized, and Photochromic lenses, these aerodynamic designed frames are your eyewears of choice for for running, cycling, and more. The Flight Jacket has a Brow-Less Design while the Field Jacket sports a Raised Brow Line for maximized upper field of view. Both boast Advancer™ nosebridge that positions the frames forward by 7mm opening airflow for less fogging and overheating. They’re equipped with Interchangeable temple lengths that ensures helmet compatibility. No-slip Unobtainium® nosepads and earsocks as well as the Three-Point Fit hold the shades in place and ensure accurate optical alignment.
