O’NEAL 47 YEARS ON
47 years on and O’Neal is still pushing boundaries, and continuing to set new standards.
From 1960’s the sport of motocross has developed, and from the start O’Neal has been one of the pioneers and innovators of MX clothing.
Jim O’Neal was an MX rider during the birth and initial growth of the sport. Jim was driven by a need to help his fellow riders (and himself) achieve more on bikes with equipment that was designed specifically for their needs. These same ideals inspired O’Neal to enter the mountain bike market in Europe and the USA in the late 80’s.
O’Neal’s dedication to the sport of MTB and product development was hugely successful and they are proud to be able to say they have helped grow and evolve the sport. Today, O’Neal is focused on the needs of enduro and trail riding, and over the last couple of years, has developed its product range to reflect this.
O’Neal was the first brand to introduce Fidlock®, the innovative one-click magnetic chin strap fastener, to the MTB market. More recently the O’Neal Zipper Knee Pad was acknowledged as one of the most innovative MTB protectors available on the market today.
Two wheels with an engine or only pedals; the philosophy for O’Neal has been (and always will be) the same – the pursuit of excellence and innovation in riding gear.
