The fit of the Dirt Lid is far more akin to a regular cross-country helmet than most other ‘pisspot’ helmets, which we think is great.


The 14 vents, combined with the multiple channels on the inside, do a good job of keeping your head cool as you ride.

O’Neal have ensured this helmet gives good coverage around the head, but they’ve wisely included large cutaways to avoid causing any discomfort around your ears.


The shape isn’t as bulbous as others, and the graphics are slick and innoffensive. It does weigh 485g though, so it’s pretty hefty.
