Enduro21 takes a first look at the new O’Neal EX SRS off-road helmet packed with function and features including integrated Airflaps as standard and a focus on those of us who ride “all day long”.

How often in this off-road riding world do we have to adapt and make do with a product or item of clothing which has been designed for motocross first and enduro second? It feels like too often if we’re honest, which is why the new O’Neal EX SRS is refreshing to find, not least because one of the first things they tell us about it is the fact it is designed to be worn all day long. We like that.

The new helmet is an addition to the already extensive SRS model line-up and also forms part of the more enduro-oriented riding clothing range which, in their words, is kit for those of us who prefer riding in “different temperatures and different conditions”.  

The “QUIN ready” feature looks cool as well. It means the EX SRS will be compatible with a new O’NEAL smart sensor device for automatic crash detection and more (already found on MTB helmets) which they tell us is coming in the autumn. 

The list of technical features is a long one, besides being the first helmet with integrated Airflaps:

  • ABS outer shell
  • Perfect and comfortable fit with 2 shells and 3 EPS sizes
  • Extra-large 13 inner and 5 outlet vents adjustable to control ‘climate’ inside helmet
