THE O’NEAL BLADE HELMET
We wanted to make sure that our product-value philosophy continued even with our higher-end products, making sure any O’Neal rider has the very best product they can get, vs any other brand out there, even those competing on the race track at World Cup level.
Out of this the O’Neal Blade Helmet was born.
We developed the Carbon BLADE helmet 2 years ago along with Greg Minnaar, to use in his 2018 and 2019 WC campaigns. The same helmet with the same features as Greg’s own personal helmet is now available in in Hyperlite and Polyacrylite materials with the incredible RRPs of only €249.99 and €179.99.
Greg raced the second-half of the 2019 WC season in a stock Hyperlite helmet, proving this great-value helmet has what is takes to perform at the very top of our sport. The Carbon version (€399.99) and selected Hyperlite versions (€279.99) incorporates our IPX® ACells helmet impact absorption technology which helps to reduce the damage caused by rotational and low-speed crashes.
can be added as an after-market part to all of our BLADE helmets.

ADVANCED RACING TECHNOLOGY

Super easy to open and close the buckle with one hand, even with gloves on and it is of course tested to the same international standards as the traditional double-D closure system.
Using over-sized vents the Blade delivers maximum airflow making it perfect for longer trails, including Enduro stages, as well as DH.
Using 2 outer shells and EPS liner sizes we were able to achieve a more snug and tailored fit for every rider vs many helmets out there.
THE BLADE RANGE
The range includes the flagship top-end Carbon race version, as chosen and raced by Greg, plus Hyperlite and Polyacrylite options in several colors and graphics and 2 versions (the Carbon and some Hyperlite versions) with our new IPX ACells technology. The Blade exceeds EN1078 safety standard for bicycle helmets and fulfills ASTM Downhill standard.
Combining high safety levels with a strong lightweight construction and great ventilation, the Blade helmet is ideal for those training and competing in DH, BMX, 4X and Enduro racing. At a competitive 980g (±50) it offers the highest level of protection.
