The Curated Take
The Oakley Mod1 helmet is a sleek skate-style helmet equipped with MIPS to keep your head fully protected. I tried a medium but found it to fit a little smaller than expected, and actually preferred a large. The helmet comes with a BOA system to adjust the size, which allows you to really find the perfect snugness. I would have liked there to be more vents, but since the vents can’t be closed, the 4 vent structure might be better. Since there are no vents directly overhead, the helmet will keep your head dry and warm on those wetter days.

A lightweight and low-profile design inspired by the classic skate-style helmet. The MOD1 is available in three fits (Standard, Asian, and Youth) and delivers simplicity with premium functionality for wherever your on-mountain adventures take you.
