Details

  • While most helmets protect only against direct impact, MIPS technology reduces rotational forces when the helmet gets hit at an angle
  • To further improve safety, the Octal provides additional coverage and protection at the temples and back of head; EPS liner is strategically thicker in the most exposed areas
  • Fully wrapped unibody shell construction enhances the integrity of the helmet while maintaining a low weight
  • Instead of using many small vents, Octal has fewer, but larger, ventilation slots for increased airflow and improved aerodynamics
  • Coolbest padding helps reduce the temperature at the interface between the helmet and head.
  • Lightweight size adjustment system ensures a comfortable and secure fit
  • Straps are molded into liner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally saved my life I had read about the new MIPS technology and new POC was at the front on safety-- I'm an avid cyclist-road, cyclocross and MTB. With that said, the rubber does not always stay down. I had an accident @28mph and had full impact with the asphalt in a whiplash like fall to the back of my helmet. No concussion, no headache and not a bruise. Unfortunately I did not have my entire body covered in POC gear--- so I'm bruised and sore. But I'm alive. I just ordered another one for myself and my wife as well. I ski--- I will be ordering the POC ski helmet for next season. I CAN'T MORE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. Expensive? Not really!! Ride on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough helmet Liked this helmet, light, great venting, hi viz. Unfortunately, crashed wearing it mountain biking shortly after purchase. Went in head first, then got hit bit bike on head too. Should have replaced then, but so expensive! Then had another crash on same side of helmet on road bike, so finally replaced. Both crashes were pretty hard, so I can vouch for the durability of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it I bought this helmet mostly because I liked its look, but I was pleasantly surprised by its versatility. Loved how I could adjust it to fit just right.
