I think Universal fit is the same as one size fits all. If you are like me and have a big mellon you will have it at the biggest adjustment.

Inside the helmet itself, there is a small system of support straps which can be tightened by a small nob at the back of the head. It is easy to turn and tighten while wearing the helmet, but I would not say the helmet fits everyone. I wear a fitted cap of 7 and 3/8" and it fits me fine. I would guess that for someone with a head over 7 and 3/4" it could get tight or smaller than 7" a bit too large. If you have a fairly average head (by fitted cap size) then the helmet works great.

they are the same thing there is no difference in a on size or universal fit. It has adjustable straps that let you loosen or tighten the helmet to a comfortable fit for you.

The one size fits all and universal fit description means the same thing. It is meant to be universal for most adults and teens. It has more adjustability in the straps and padding to fit a larger number of people.
There are one size helmets that are based on the circumference of your head. They are less adjustable since they are meant to fit a specific size head but they usually fit better as long as you get the correct size. They also usually cost more since they are meant to fit a smaller group of people and not the masses.
Hope that answered your question. Happy (and safe) cycling.

So far as I know these terms mean the same thing. In my experience some brand helmets are a little tight and Giro is one of those brands, so if you have a big noggin like I do, that may also be your experience.
