Borrowing technology and design the from the Poc Octal road helmet, the POC Octal X Helmet has been developed to suit the needs of XC mountain biking. It carries over the same features we love from the road helmet, like extreme ventilation and low weight, along with having a unibody shell construction and aerodynamic efficiency. The biggest change is the added robustness and protection to suit the needs of cross country riding. One of the biggest features is the extended helmet shell, which covers the helmet liner to provide enhanced strength with barely any increase in weight.

POC Octal is well ventilated with great big ports. Big enough for bees to fly in and out of... I guess that's both a pro and a con. Not that it happens all the time but when bugs fly into your helmet, you want them to have a way out... especially when they have pointy thingies on their butts. Good venting means cool head too although you will get helmet tan head with ports this size.
Let me start by saying I really like this helmet. It fits well. Comfortable. Minimal pressure points. I don't feel like I need to add padding. I like the extra coverage and protection it gives. It's light weight and has good airflow. So why 3 stars.? On my 1st couple rides I felt something rubbing above my right ear. On inspection of the helmet I noticed the plastic adjustment band that surrounds your head was twisted and did not sit flush with the helmet. I contacted Jenson to discuss exchange and was provided the option to fix myself or send back to be fixed. They included some instruction on how to fix. It was not a difficult fix and I was able to easily do myself. For the price of these high end helmets I do not feel I should have to "fix" my helmet upon receiving it. I do not blame Jenson, they were helpful. It should have never passed inspection/quality control at POC.
