It looks like these guys have just added some Oakley branding to a TSG helmet to flog it easier. I've a mate at Oakley Europe and I'll check with them for deffinate, but personally I'd avoid them.
Its the TSG Crown helmet. Refers to skiing in there but has the exact same description. One to avoid i feel...

I guess TSG as a brand must make some good helmets - they're based in Zurich and have a number of good riders on their roster - AND Harry wears a TSG helmet, so it must be good.
But for this company to claim theyre made by Oakley is a little 'off'

For sure Oakley are just a re- badged TSG but with one critical difference. The Oakley branded lids are dramatically more expensive! The same applies to Ride lids. These are TSG too. There are a few others out there as well but their names escape me for the moment. The flex fit system used on these lids is superb. They won a design innovation award at ISPO a couple of years ago. The helmets flex to conform to your head shape and pass all the CE safety tests.
