POC Octal Helmet

If you follow pro road cycling, you’ve most likely seen the award winning Octal helmet being worn by one of the most renowned teams in the pro peloton; Team Garmin-Sharp. Engineered to be the next model in road cycling helmet safety, the POC Octal boats optimal ventilation, comfort and weighs less than 200 grams. The EPS liner is tactically thicker in more exposed areas and is covered by the outer PC shell, while the temples and back of the head get more coverage to further improve safety. The monocoque unibody shell construction greatly enhances the protection properties and construction reliability of the Octal while keeping weight to a minimum.

Unlike all other road helmets, the Octal employs a unique approach to enabling ventilation. Instead of many small vents, the Octal has fewer, yet bigger vents for an overall larger open surface area at the front, which in combination with the optimized interior design, allows more air to flow through the helmet. To further enhance the cooling abilities and comfort, the Octal features internal Coolbest padding that helps reduce the temperatures in the interface between your head and your helmet, while the insanely light size adjustment system ensures a comfortable, yet secure fit.

Perhaps the wittiest feature is the built-in eye garage that allows you to keep your shades securely in position when placed on the helmet. To top it all off, the distinctive, refreshingly-modern look of the Octal is like nothing your roads have seen before.

    Comments about POC Octal Helmet:

    This helmet is by one of the lightest and most breathable helmets I have owned. I have owned Giro, Lazer and Specialized helmets. The vents are huge and no worries about over heating on hot days or long climbs. On those cold or raining days, POC includes a cycling cap that will fit under the helmet prefectly. The eye garage is one of the best ideas ever. No more worries about losing or your glasses falling out. Set it and forget it.
