Reviews
One K Defender Suede Helmet is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Difficult Fit, Good Airflow I had a hard time finding a good fit in this helmet, and had to order/return/re-order several times before I found the right one. First, these helmets run small compared to Charles Owen and IRH. My measurements did not match up with the size chart, which said I should get a M, but I actually needed a L. I'd also read that most people have oval-shaped heads, but again, after quite a bit of trial and error, I found the round fit me best. Be prepared to try a few size/shape combinations. If you're dead set on ordering from Smartpak, see if you can try this helmet on in a local store first. Smartpak's customer service is always great, but it's still a hassle to order/return/re-order multiple times. That said, I do like this helmet for the most part. I haven't had it long, but you can literally feel a breeze through the vents when you're riding and even just walking. I'm VERY heat sensitive, so this is a huge plus for me during the summer. It also has an attractive, modern look that's very nice. The biggest drawback is that the chin strap is wide and set at a strange angle. At first, it really bothered me because it felt like it would come up over my chin, but it hasn't and I got used to it. Obviously this will be different for different people, but it's something to think about when you're trying these on. I also think the chin strap is a bit cheap and the placement of the velcro may not work for everyone. I know this is a poor man's Samshield, but for the price, I'd still expect a nicer, more adjustable strap. Again, overall a nice helmet, good air flow, runs small, weirdly fitting chin strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I have a hard time finding helmets that fit properly, and wanted one with a removable liner that can be washed or replaced. This was exactly what I was looking for.
Date published: 2020-09-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering helmet I have a rather large head and this does not make my head look huge. It also is comfortable.
Date published: 2019-11-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Problematic chinstrap I really liked the looks of this helmet thanks to the microsuede cover, but I had to return it due to fit issues. The liner of the helmet is well-cushioned and comfortable, and it fit my head well, but the angle of the chinstrap goes too far forward. It was practically on the front of my chin versus under my jaw, so it really wouldn't secure the helmet in a crash. I could imagine the force of hitting the ground would push the chinstrap too far forward and result in the helmet popping right off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good helmet I got this helmet in 2017 when I switched from braids to having my hair in my helmet for shows, and it's still like new! I've taken a few spills in it and it holds up very well. My only complaint is that it tends to stab my forehead when I wear it and it always leaves me with a giant bump there, but I think that's probably just a sizing issue. Overall it's a good helmet for a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking helmet The helmet fits well and is comfortable. The chin strap is easily adjustable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Investment First "pricey" helmet I've bought and I am 100% in love! Went with the long oval and it fits like a glove! So comfortable. I have yet to ride in the middle of the summer heat but so far so good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the One For Me I like this helmet when I see it on other people, but it didn't fit me well. I needed a more personalized size than just small, medium or large. The large made me look like a mushroom head, and I think the medium would've been too small. I also prefer real leather/suede to the synthetic materials. I sent it back and went for the Samshield. Thank goodness for free and fast shipping at Smartpak! I do think this is a good helmet for the price range though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect helmet I bought the One K Defender in black suede about 2 years ago-it is very pretty, light weight, and the vents are perfect for hot Virginia summers! I was amazed to find the small long oval fit absolutely perfectly, my actual size is 7 1/8/22.5”. The liner has just worn out and I’m not sure how to replace that particular liner. I am tempted to buy a navy or gray one-would be great if Smart Pak carried long oval sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking affordable helmet, but... I really like the One K helmets - they look great on other riders and the helmet part fit me well. The problem for me is that the chin strap angle from the helmet puts the strap in front of my chin. I tried various shapes and sizes, but unfortunately had to go with another more expensive brand :(
