Overview

Why We Love This

The GR8 Plus helmet by Charles Owen is at the cutting edge of equestrian fashion. First introduced in 1998, the iconic Gr8 launched the unique, low profile style for which Charles Owen is known.  Sleek and sporty, the Gr8 is triple certified to three international safety standards so you can ride with the knowledge you’re well protected.  Available in an array of microfiber suede combinations with a color coordinated harness which is reinforced with nylon for added security.  Exceptionally wee fitting, the Gr8 now features a removable, washable headband that can be easily replaced to extend the lifespan of your helmet.

Made in UK

CAUTION: Safety equipment must fit properly and be appropriately secured with manufacture approved parts only. Altering or adding to safety equipment voids warranty and can result in injury. As a safety precaution, inspect all products prior to each use.

Charles Owen GR8 Plus Helmet is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn’t work Sizing was wrong. Head crushing small. Yet my old helmet that fit was same size. Difference may be round v oval. But this helmet not offered in oval. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only helmet that fits my really long oval head! I always try what’s new in helmets when I need to replace one...Charles Owens is the only brand with a long enough Long Oval.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helmet good, strap okay The helmet was on sale and works well, it is snug but looks good. The chin strap was a bit of a surprise, not a clasp, not much room to adjust length and the it snaps to fixed side. I have small chin so it works fine
Date published: 2019-09-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Helmet but NO Ventilation Nice fit and attractive style, but absolutely no vents. I bought it online and didn't realize it didn't have vents. I kept it because I like the look. Will be great for fall and cold weather riding. I bought the AYR8 a few weeks ago and its Much cooler to ride in. They are pretty much the same shape, sizing and profile. I bought the AYR8 in navy and love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! Overall, I really love this helmet! I show in the 3'6 hunters, and it looks great; low-profile, classy, and sleek! I've been using it for over 3 years, and it looks brand new! The only problem that I have with it is that there is no ventilation! On hot, sunny summer days, I overheat really fast with this helmet and get bad headaches. If you live in a cooler area, or ride indoors during the summer, it shouldn't be a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fit and quality Solid, rich looking helmet. Great fit. Was told it will last.
Date published: 2016-07-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great! I love this helmet. It looks amazing in the show ring, however my head gets extremely hot in it. I've had it for over 4 years, worn almost every day and it doesn't look a day old. The quality is excellent.
Date published: 2016-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For the Hunter Ring! I recently purchased this helmet, and I do not regret it one bit. They look great in the Hunter ring, and look great overall. They are a bit pricey, but they look fabulous and safety is the key. If you do show, make sure that there is enough room for you to put your hair up in the helmet, but not too loose so that it is only snug with your hair up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! My daughter's favorite helmet. This is her second one of this particular style. She loves Charles Owen helmets and I love the price and service offered by Smartpak!
Date published: 2015-12-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safest and best looking The brand was recommended as very safe, and, to my pleasure, is quite good looking. Furthermore, it fits better than any helmet I've ever had. I even thought my head feels better with the helmet on than off. It has increased my confidence in the saddle, and, while I know there are no guarantees in this life, knowing I'm wearing the best goes a long way. The staff was very helpful in making my selection.
