Overview

Why We Love This

The Charles Owen AYR8 Plus Helmet features a low profile helmet with 12 centrally located front and rear ventilation slots covered in a smart breathable mesh. The side panels are covered in microfiber suede and the helmet features a vegan leather-look GRpx® harness. Patented GRpx® technology harness offers superior fit and security with self-adjusting cups that lock onto the occipital bone located at the base of the skull, so that it cannot shift and alter the area of protection, offering unsurpassed stability and comfort.

Made in UK

Reviews
Charles Owen AYR8 Plus Helmet is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Helmet! I always buy Charles Owen AYR8 helmets for my daughter for their safety and fit. It doesn’t hurt that they are beautiful too. This one is no exception, and worth every penny. The most recent one that we ordered was a centimeter too small and SmartPak exchanged it immediately with a smile. Their customer service is exceptional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet!!!!! After riding in a Charles Owen Wellington Pro for years, I finally decided to bite the bullet and try something else. I even bought multiple brands of helmets but always come back to Charles Owen as they fit my head best. I rode in this helmet over the weekend and it was immediately comfortable, MUCH cooler than my Wellington Pro and it has a very flattering shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Charles Owen with removable liner A Charles Owen with a removable liner was exactly what I needed. I’ve had this helmet for a couple years and am highly satisfied. I did not have issues with the fit or comfort as other reviewers have mentioned. With all of my Charles Owen helmets, they fit tighter when new and looser once they are worn a few times and the padding squished down. Sonething to consider when fitting the helmets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit I bought this helmet a month ago and love the fit. The vents are great in the southern heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the helmet, but the sizing didn't work for me I purchased this helmet during Helmet Awareness Day to replace my older CO JR8. Loved the idea of having vents and a removable, washable liner. I purchased a 6 7/8, because that's the size of both my GR8 and JR8 and they both fit like a glove. I was really disappointed when this helmet was entirely too tight and after reaching out to SP customer service, was suggested to exchange for a 7". Unfortunately the 7 is still too small - it squeezes my temples - something I've never experienced with my other 2 CO helmets. Because I don't live close to a tack shop, trying on different sizes isn't a convenient option. I've decided to return the helmet until I can figure out what size will work for me. My 4 star rating is due to the small sizing (relative to other COs). The helmet is gorgeous and I'm bummed that it didn't work out.
