Oakley DRT5 Greg Minnaar Signature Series helmet, £159

Greg Minnaar’s new signature helmet has an interesting feature that might tickle your fancy — little hooks on the top of the shell that pop up like doors on a DeLorean and grab your glasses when you want to stow them somewhere. Oakleys’ of course, they might just chew through rival brands.

It’s a cool feature because it means airflow through the helmet isn’t restricted by parking your glasses on top or off that back of the helmet, but that’s not why this helmet is Most Wanted. Instead it’s the innovative sweat band that runs round the top of your brow, made of silicone it channels sweat from your forehead and off down the side of your head. No more sweaty faces or stinging eyes.

No sweat: the DRT5’s silicone sweat band removes perspiration

It’s one of the most comfortable helmets we’ve ever tried too thanks to the new BOA 360 fit system, which lets you dial in the fit of the helmet with a dial at the back of your head. What’s new about the Drt5 is that it uses BOA’s lace ties to run along the side of your head rather than the familiar plastic ribs most helmets use to secure a good fit. This means your glasses never impede the fit of the helmet.

Protecting your head is the usual EPS and nylon shell, plus a MIPS liner for slip plane protection. Look out for a test soon to see if Minnaar’s really has done a good job.
