The first goal of a helmet is to protect the rider in the event of a fall and the POC Trebec Race helmet offers the highest level of protection with a maximum amount of comfort for the XC or enduro rider. POC is a Swedish company thats main mission is to protect athletes from accidents in gravity related sports and activities. They utilize input from engineers, graphic designers, neurologist, and back specialists to create comfortable protective gear that fits the body but doesn't compomise safety.

The POC Trabec helmet fits around the head as opposed to on top of the head to offer more protection all around the head. The extra coverage on the side will be appreciated when falling backward or on your side. POC also optimized the shell by eliminating seams in those crucial areas. The shell itself is designed like a skeleton with Aramid filaments reinforcing the harder EPS shell to make a tough and durable protective layer. Built into the shell are aerodynamic channels and 16 vents to keep your head cool and comfortable.

    Sizing Guide- POC recommends measuring just above the ears
  • XS/S - 51-54cm
  • M/L - 55-58cm
  • XL/XXL - 59-62cm


POC Trabec - Winner of the prestigious 2012 Grand Award of Design

        Comments about Poc Trabec Helmet 2012:

        I bought this helmet for trail riding, and it has been great. I have the green one so it stands out nicely, but also makes my head look like a large lime, which I like. It fits my head perfectly, and doesn't move around at all while riding. I have yet to crash it to check durability, but I did hit my head off of a low lying branch over the trail and all the helmet suffered was a small paint chip on the visor. One issue is that if you ride with glasses the retention straps can get in the way. This is not a big deal however since all you need to do is position the arms of the glasses over the strap.

            Comments about Poc Trabec Helmet 2012:

            I found that this helmet to be one of the most comfortable ones on the market. It fits true to size and close to a Giro/Bell if that is your noggin type. Can't comment on the functionality of the helmet as I haven't had my head bounce off of anything but the adjustments will fine tune it your head-shape nicely. I didn't notice the lack of air vents compared to other models, but I live in Canada and the weather doesn't get too hot.
            To sum up - great fitting helmet, but like most try before you buy to make sure it fits your head shape.

            Comments about Poc Trabec Helmet 2012:

            After having a Specialized a Giro helmet I've finally found one that fits well. I was constantly fiddling with adjustments on both those helmets, the POC has been solid since the initial adjustments. Fits great and stays in place, doesn't move around on rough terrain. I'm sweat a lot and the pads keep the sweat from eyes. It may be considered a warmer helmet but I feel it's worth the protection. I can't comment on how well it works in an impact yet, that's why I only gave it four stars.

            Needed a new lid (Too many OTBs!) this is a distinct looking, great fitting helmet that is super light and very robust in its construction.

            Not for me

            I purchased this helmet thinking that it would provide more protection at the back of my head than my Giro XAR. It turns out that they both protect the same area (one doesn't go any lower than the other). The fit was OK, but I preferred the XAR. Seems to be a great helmet, just not for me.
