Review: Bollé The One Premium Helmet

It is a awesome time to be a cyclist.  There have never been so many great options to keep you riding year round, in any weather.  Thanks to more versatile bikes, you can keep the two wheeled love affair alive by keeping things interesting 365 days a year.  If you are like me, you look for equipment that is versatile enough to be used with all forms of two wheeled locomotion, any time of the year.  Bollé has come out with a great new option called: Bolle One that satisfies the needs of a diverse all season cyclist.

Great style and colors are offered with aerodynamic design, removable visor, snap in vent covers, cool weather liner and rear led this helmet offers a fully customizable system. They’ve even designed a sunglass garage so you can stow your glasses to rest on top of the visor without being stabbed by the glass arms.  The glasses stay put even on the trail when you park them in the garage.   The One helmet from Bollé offers up a slick, do-it-all integrated package.

Bolle The One with Glasses
With cool weather liner. Notice how well the excellent Bollé Bolt glasses fit with this helmet.


Model: Bolle One – Size medium

Price: $169

Weight: 287 grams with visor


Pros:  Super versatile with more optional accessories than inspector gadget.   Great warm weather, cool weather, road, mountain.  This helmet does it all.  Includes integrated blinky light that only adds 14 grams to the helmet.  Very comfortable with no hot spots.

Cons: When I ride more burly trails, I’d will choose a helmet that has more protection around the back.  No MIPS version.

Bolle One Aero
The One with easily installed aero shells for increased aerodynamics and cool weather riding.

For the price (or at any price) there is no helmet that compares with all the features “The One” has.  I really like the fit too.  It compares favorably with the most comfortable helmets I’ve used.  The size and fit seems to be very similar to Giro.  The retention system has a nice high quality feel and very small indexes for a precise fit.

Bolle One LED
A integrated LED blinky is a nice touch for safer commutes home from the local trails or from the post ride beer at the local pub.

Verdict:  Coming from an enduro type helmet with added coverage and MIPS protection, I found the Bollé helmet very light and extremely comfortable.   For most of my general backcountry and xc type riding, this is now my helmet of choice.  “The One” definitely satisfies the need of a diverse all season cyclist, offering a fully customizable helmet.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
